  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
    The Jaguars can't go into the 2013 season with Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert as their quarterbacks. They just can't. No one would go to the games - flashy uniforms or not. There are rumors that Jacksonville likes both Ryan Nassib and Matt Barkley. The latter is the one who is available.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously Geno Smith, QB

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International
    Despite making the Pro Bowl, Donte Whitner wasn't very good this past year (he surrendered more touchdowns than any safety). Dashon Goldson, meanwhile, left for Tampa Bay in free agency. The 49ers, who might want to upgrade the secondary after Joe Flacco torched them in the Super Bowl, will need a replacement.

    Jonathan Cyprien made this big leap recently. There's so much buzz about him recently, and there are multiple reports indicating that several teams have him ranked as the No. 2 safety in this class. He could go as high as No. 21 to the Bengals.

    Pick change; previously D.J. Hayden, CB

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida State
    Chip Kelly said there would be competition at the quarterback position. He probably meant between the signal-caller he just retained, Dennis Dixon and whomever he drafts in Round 2 or 3. I can't see Nick Foles staying on the roster; he doesn't fit the offense, and the Eagles can get a third-rounder at the very worst for him.

    E.J. Manuel is the best fit for Kelly's offense out of the signal-callers available at this juncture, though maybe the Eagles will move up for Geno Smith.

  4. Detroit Lions: Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State
    As I mentioned in Round 1, the Lions are desperate for a left tackle in the wake of Jeff Backus' retirement. Menelik Watson has been mentioned as a possible first-round selection, so he could be the top player on Detroit's board.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 100-plus yards in four of the five games prior to battling Pittsburgh, but that's mostly just great blocking rather than the Law Firm improving. One of the Bengals' top priorities is finding a capable running back.

    As mentioned in the 2013 NFL Draft Rumors page, we received word from a reliable source saying that the Bengals are "all in" on Eddie Lacy. This makes sense, as Cincinnati loves Alabama prospects.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Long, OT

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky
    The Cardinals consider guard to be a much greater need than tackle. If they draft a lineman in the first two rounds, it'll probably be an interior player.

  7. New York Jets: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford
    The Jets need a replacement at tight end after losing Dustin Keller to the Dolphins. They reportedly love Zach Ertz, so they'll take him if he's available at this juncture.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
    This is a steal for the Titans, as I had to slot Bjoern Werner somewhere. I removed him from the Giants' pick, and I had trouble finding a spot for him. I'm sure someone will trade up for him in the beginning of the second round if he falls.

    Defensive end is a need for Tennessee though. The Titans have zero depth behind Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley, and in a division that features Matt Schaub and Andrew Luck, they need all the pass-rushing help they can get.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
    General manager Buddy Nix, who is generally forthcoming about his offseason plans, told the media that he plans on drafting a franchise quarterback. He also said that he desperately wants a wide receiver across from Stevie Johnson. The Bills get lucky here, as Cordarrelle Patterson falls right into their laps.

    Pick change; previously Robert Woods, WR

  10. Miami Dolphins: Robert Alford, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
    Brent Grimes was signed, but cornerback is still a huge need for Miami. Counting on Grimes, who is coming off a torn Achilles, would be foolish, so the Dolphins could easily go after two corners relatively early in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Margus Hunt, DE/DT, SMU
    The Buccaneers lost Michael Bennett and Roy Miller this offseason, so they have to find help on the defensive line. They've shown interest in Margus Hunt.

    Pick change; previously Terron Armstead, OT



  12. Carolina Panthers: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State
    The Panthers cut Chris Gamble, so they desperately need some help at the cornerback position.

    Pick change; previously Kawann Short, DT

  13. San Diego Chargers: Justin Pugh, G/OT, Syracuse
    Even if the Chargers are lucky enough to obtain Lane Johnson at No. 11, they'll likely draft another lineman on Day 2. They're in desperate need of guard help.

  14. St. Louis Rams: Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
    The Rams just lost Steven Jackson to the Falcons, so they'll have to find another running back to compete with Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead.

    Pick change; previously Eddie Lacy, RB

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin
    The Cowboys are expected to use a Round 2-4 pick on a running back. Jerry Jones recently said that none of DeMarco Murray's current backups are considered No. 2 runners.

    Pick change; previously Damontre Moore, DE/OLB

  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU
    The Steelers, as they always do, catch a falling prospect. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently reported that the Steelers could be targeting an inside linebacker early in the 2013 NFL Draft. Kevin Minter may go at the end of the first round, so he's a steal at this juncture.

  17. New York Giants: Alex Okafor, DE/OLB, Texas
    Giant fans know that general manager Jerry Reese loves drafting pass-rushers. With Osi Umenyiora gone and Justin Tuck coming off a down year, Reese may select a defensive end early this April.

  18. Chicago Bears: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State
    I had Arthur Brown going to Chicago in the first round a couple of weeks ago, but I'm hearing he could fall a bit because of some injury concerns. The Bears have shown lots of interest in him, however, so they could move up a few spots in Round 2 to land the talented linebacker.

    The Bears once had a strong group of linebackers, but Nick Roach just signed with the Raiders, while Brian Urlacher was told to hit the road because he wouldn't accept $2 million for 2013. D.J. Williams was signed, and while he's currently projected to replace Urlacher in the middle, he could ultimately move to strongside linebacker if Chicago can land someone as talented as Brown.



  19. Washington Redskins: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
    The Redskins signed E.J. Biggers and retained DeAngelo Hall, so they're OK at cornerback for now. However, Biggers, Hall and Josh Wilson all have expiring contracts in March 2014. Long-term corner help is needed.

  20. Minnesota Vikings: Robert Woods, WR, USC
    The front office has to add more talent to complement a very inconsistent Christian Ponder especially in the wake of the Percy Harvin trade. Go here to see my grade for the Percy Harvin trade. Multiple wideouts had to be obtained for Ponder prior to the Greg Jennings signing. One more is still needed.

    Pick change; previously Keenan Allen, WR

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Kyle Long, OT/G, Oregon
    It was once considered a given that the Bengals would retain Andre Smith, but ProFootballTalk recently reported that Cincinnati is now expected to let Smith walk away and instead search for a cheaper replacement at right tackle in the 2013 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Johnathan Franklin, RB

  22. Kansas City Chiefs: Kiko Alonso, ILB, Oregon
    I'm giving Kansas City this pick for the rumored Branden Albert trade. It sounds like it's going to happen very soon.

    The Chiefs pretty much sent everyone to Oregon's Pro Day, so Andy Reid had a good look at Kiko Alonso, who could perhaps be Jovan Belcher's replacement.



  23. Green Bay Packers: Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
    James Starks has yet to prove that he can stay healthy, while Alex Green has shown nothing in several starts. Cedric Benson is obviously not a long-term answer, though I've been impressed with DuJuan Harris in his limited action. Still, the Packers are expected to address the running back position at some point in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  24. Seattle Seahawks: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
    The Seahawks traded for Percy Harvin, but they could be in the market for another wideout because Sidney Rice is so unreliable. They're reportedly heavily interested in Quinton Patton.

  25. Houston Texans: Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida
    There's a ton of uncertainty at inside linebacker for Houston. Brian Cushing is coming off a torn ACL, Bradie James is an impending free agent who isn't very good, while neither Tim Dobbins nor Darryl Sharpton is worthy of starting.

  26. Denver Broncos: Johnathan Hankins, NT, Ohio State
    The Broncos signed Terrance Knighton, but that doesn't mean they won't add another interior lineman. Jack Del Rio loves having multiple massive defensive tackles. Think back to his days in Jacksonville with Marcus Stroud and John Henderson.



  27. New England Patriots: Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State
    It's no secret the Patriots need receiving help in the wake of losing both Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd this offseason. Markus Wheaton fits exactly what Bill Belichick looks for in a receiver, and this is the right draft range for him.

  28. Atlanta Falcons: Cornelius Washington, DE/OLB, Georgia
    The overpaid Ray Edwards was cut during the season. John Abraham was also released recently. Defensive end will be a priority early in the 2013 NFL Draft, and the Falcons may even double dip at the position in the first few rounds.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: John Jenkins, NT, Georgia
    The most frustrating part about creating this year's mock draft is finding a spot for all of the nose tackles. There are just too many, and there aren't enough teams that need them. The 49ers, as an example, don't value the position highly, but I think they'll see the value in obtaining someone like John Jenkins at the end of Round 2 or the beginning of Round 3.

    Pick change; previously Margus Hunt, DE/DT

  30. Baltimore Ravens: Sio Moore, LB, Connecticut
    The Ravens like Sio Moore's versatility. They desperately need help at linebacker in the wake of Ray Lewis' retirement, Dannell Ellerbe's departure and Rolando McClain's ridiculous arrest.

    Pick change; previously Darius Slay, CB

The Seahawks top priority is an OLB. I don't mind the OT selections, but you're just plain stupid if you don't have them selecting an olb in the first 5 picks. Perhaps you should trade in the NFL mocks for WNBA.

This is the best Bengals draft I have seen yet. Even if we resign Andre Smith, D.J. Fluker is a talent that cannot be passed up and he will eventually start in later years, not to mention he will fit very well in jumbo formations. Matt Elam fills the void we have at safety tremendously. He has great run support ability similar to Reggie Nelson and he also has the ability to move laterally from sideline to sideline while playing coverage in single high formations. Johnathan Franklin is the perfect change of pace running back to complement BJGE. Enough said. Sio Moore is a more than capable outside linebacker who will fill the void of Manny Lawson should Thomas Howard not remain on the team. This is a good value pick in the 3rd round as he is Mike Mayock's 4th ranked outside linebacker in a 4-3 defence. Tyrann Mathieu is an outstanding physical corner who will also be a threat in the return game. He will fill the void of Brandon Tate in returning and will complement the coverage ability of our other corners with his physicality. Zac Dysert is what he is, a capable enough backup who will develop under Dalton. WHO DEY

Can you set up a sort of draft picks by team?

Redskins draft 3 cornerbacks? I don't think so. They have Josh Wilson as one starter. Chase Minnifield says he'll be ready. There's no reason to panic, and you can't expect to get starters in the 4th round.
There are too many reaches for the Redskins in this mock. You've got a big board, and if it's current, use it. If your big board isn't current, fix it.
Here's who I would have the Skins pick:
2nd round: David Amerson (CB/S)
3rd round: Eric Reid (S), or Barrett Jones (OL) or Logan Ryan (CB)
4th round: Brennan Williams (OT)
Amerson is arguably not a value pick, but picking him gives you flexibility to pick the best available DB in later rounds. The other picks are value picks that also meet needs. The Redskins' front office trusts their Big Board (think Kirk Cousins). You should trust yours.

I agree on this draft for the falcons. But a successor to Roddy White wont be found in the 4th though. Davis didnt do bad at all when he was called upon. They might have to go with a Gooden or Thomas with that pick. Wouldn't mind seeing Sanders come to us in the 4th or 5th to be a physical nickle back. But nice draft for the falcons Walt. Give your boy Charlie some pointers...lol

I'm not usually one to criticize, especially this far out, but this is the worst mock for the Cleveland Browns that I've ever seen--or that I could really imagine to be honest with you. I'm refreshingly impressed with what Banner and Lombardi are doing with this team and your mock doesn't reflect their approach. The most likely scenario involves us trading down, but I know we can't account for that in the mock.

We are not going to select Milliner at #6 as a CB2. We have a CB1 and won't use a pick this high on a CB2 even if it addresses a huge need, because we won't get stuck in cap hell of paying two CB1 salaries come 2016. This is especially true given how deep and talented this CB draft class is.

Also, please stop mocking QB's to the Browns in the 3rd. It's not going to happen. We're very upset that we don't have a 2nd. We're not going to waste a 3rd on one of these questionable prospects. Haslam and Banner just stated as much at the AZ owner's meetings. Chudzinski just said that competition will be "created" by guys on roster. If we take a QB at all it would be in the 6th with someone like Sean Renfree.

Browns will be choosing highly talented guys with lots of upside that fit within long-term cap strategy. Given the way you have the board set up Browns picks would be:
1: Ansah
3: Escobar
4: Brandon McGee
5: Kenny Stills

Falcons draft is spot on. Only change I would make, is instead of Harper in the 4th Id take a shot at Lattimore who you have going the pick after. Jackson wont be the horse for long and Lattimore (if he ever returns to his previous form) would be a huge steal.

Great Job on Trufant, Hunt, Jenkins and Taylor. All are wonderful fits and needs.

Landry Jones has no future in the NFL besides scout team 3rd-4th string qb in camp, hes overatted because his numbers at Oklahoma are impressive but if you watched him in big games against good COLLEGE defences he was average to below average and made A LOT of bonehead mistakes
