    *** THIS IS A LIVE 2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT. PICKS ARE BEING POSTED NOW. TO SEE PREVIOUS VERSIONS, CHECK OUT THE ARCHIVED 2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT SECTION. FOLLOW @walterfootball FOR UPDATES ***

  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

Packers going offense in rounds one, two, three, and four.... apparently you guys didn't watch San Fran put up 500+ yards on GB in the playoffs.

While Te'o may go close to where you have him slotted... virtually every other analyst has praised his other drills you say he was "stiff" in... and his 10 yard split was decent

Lol- I dont think Mathieu will make it past the second round personally but almost every mock draft you look at has him 3rd round or later. Barrett Jones has taken an incredible slide too. I don't believe he will make it past the 2nd round either as he has too much potential with the level he was able to play every position on the line.

Laughing at Bears winning strategy for the draft. Stupid fanboy, nobody will move from 27/30 and give up there first and second. Maybe a 3rd more likely a 4th.

Although the fit for Mauti at Baltimore is just too perfect, I'd love to have him compete for starting Will 'backer at Cincy. Disappointed that Mike Brown didn't chase Fitz after his release, Dalton could've done with a strong mentor like that

I realize in my previous post I said to grab a RB in FA, but I looked around at several other mocks and rankings to judge about where Williams would go, If he is available in the 6th round I would hope JJ and Company would take a look....

Vaccaro is the only pick that really makes sense at 18(going by this draft). Logan IMO is a reach in the 2nd, I would lean toward Margus Hunt or Alex Okafor. In the 3rd Dallas Thomas is a great pick but Barrett Jones is available and with no one as so much as a legitimate back up to Costa, Jones has to be the pick. Ellington in the 4th I just don't agree with, pick up a veteran back in FA once training camp begins(and the cap is fixed hopefully). With the Scandrick's inflated contract look for him to be on the out next season if the cap is close again and Tyrann Mathieu could a great replacement as slot CB. In the 5th Josh Boyce @ 5'11" is not the type of receiver the 'Boys need(we have enough shorter receivers), with a need at DT I would take a serious look at Kwame Geathers at this point, he looked more dominant than John Jenkins to me. So here is my version of the Cowboys picks through the 6th round:
1. Kenny Vaccaro (S Texas)
2. Margus Hunt (DE SMU)
3. Barrett Jones (C Alabama)
4. Tyrann Mathieu (CB LSU)
5. Kwame Geathers (DT Georgia)
6. Kerwynn Williams (RB Utah State)
Let me know what you think COWBOYS FANS!!!
Bears strategy for a winning draft 03-20-2013 05:06 am xxx.xxx.xxx.210 (total posts: 31)

Bears strategy for a winning draft should be:

Rd 1 - Trade down from 20 to 27-30 and pick up a 2nd rounder. Then draft Damontre Moore, DE/OLB. He has fallen from a top 2 pick to this and would add depth to Peppers and Briggs and take over from one of them next year.

Rd 2a - Kevin Mintner, ILB. Urlacher's successor

Rd 2b - Landry Jones, QB. Possibly the best QB in the draft over the long run. Could take over from Cutler in case they don't extend him or will have good trade value if they do extend Cutler.

Rd 4 - Tyrone Mathieu, CB. A Rd 2 talent dropping due to other issues and a steal at this stage

Rd 5 - Kenny Stills, WR. A Rd 2 talent dropping due to other issues and a steal at this stage

Rd 6 - Michael Mauti, ILB. A potential Rd 1 talent dropping due to back issues and could be good at depth
Da Bears 03-20-2013 04:57 am xxx.xxx.xxx.210 (total posts: 31)

So Bears are going to draft Arthur Brown at 20 because he is shooting up the draft board. Very possible. Shea McLellin shot up from a mid-2nd rounder to a mid-1st rounder last season and the Bears drafted him at 19.

Rams already have Welles as their Center and their guard positions are not as big of a need as a WR 1st.

I would be extremely disappointed if the vikings took all the players you ahve mocked to them. Not impressed with K.Allen(injuries,slow) would hate to grab a DT with a 1st. too many solid ones up through the 4th rd.

Can someone explain why the Vikings wouldn't sign Victor Cruz to an offer sheet? They have 2 1st round picks, they have cap space, and Cruz is the best slot receiver aside from...Percy Harvin. Of course Cruz doesn't come with all the baggage of a Harvin.

Even if the Giants match the offer (assume Mike Wallace-type money) then the Giants would be forced to cut players to get under the cap. Thus weakening a conference rival.

Of course, they Vikings won't offer a contract to Cruz because the owners have colluded to not make plays for each others RFAs, which would drive salaries up. There is no competitive reason why the Vikings (or the Texans or the 49ers) would not make an offer for Cruz at a first round tender.
