    *** 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. Kansas City Chiefs: Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
    The Chiefs keep getting rid of their tackles, so I guess I have to keep mocking them players at that position.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    Pick change; previously David Bakhtiari, OT/G

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: David Bakhtiari, OT/G, Colorado
    David Bakhtiari would be a nice addition for the Jaguars, who have several holes up front. Bakhtiari can play four positions on the offensive line.

    Pick change; previously Barrett Jones, G/C/OT

  3. Detroit Lions: David Amerson, CB/S, N.C. State
    The Lions still need cornerback help even after re-signing Chris Houston. They've shown a good amount of interest in David Amerson.

  4. Oakland Raiders: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
    If the Raiders take an offensive tackle instead of Sharrif Floyd at No. 3, they'll have to address the interior of their defensive front on Day 2.

    Pick change; previously Matt Barkley, QB



  5. Philadelphia Eagles: Gavin Escobar, TE, San Diego State
    The Eagles have shown a ton of interest in Gavin Escobar - go here to see the 2013 NFL Draft Prospect Meetings. Chip Kelly loves utilizing tight ends in his offense, and the Eagles need one even after signing James Casey, given that Brent Celek is in decline.

  6. Cleveland Browns: Jamie Collins, DE/OLB, Southern Miss
    Michael Lombardi loves pass-rushers. He'll likely draft one early despite signing Paul Kruger because Jabaal Sheard is not a good fit for the 3-4. He could be traded.

  7. Arizona Cardinals: J.J. Wilcox, S, Georgia Southern
    Adrian Wilson and Kerry Rhodes were both cut, which opened up a major hole at safety for Arizona. Yeremiah Bell was signed, but he's just one player, and a short-term solution at that.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
    If the Titans don't draft Dee Milliner in the first round, they'll have to find a cornerback on Day 2. They need to improve their terrible pass defense if they want to beat the Colts or Texans.

  9. Buffalo Bills: Vance McDonald, TE, Rice
    General manager Buddy Nix recently told the media that he plans on upgrading the tight end position. Expect one of his Day 2 selections to be used on this.

  10. New York Jets: Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M
    The Jets need to give their next quarterback some weapons to work with. Both the receiver and tight end positions need to be upgraded. Running back must be addressed as well. Shonn Greene signed with the Titans, but he wasn't very good anyway.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut
    The Buccaneers traded for Darrelle Revis - go here to see the Revis trade grade - but they still need to add another corner.

  12. San Francisco 49ers: B.W. Webb, CB, William & Mary Teams are always looking for cornerback depth, especially if they have extra picks. Besides, Carlos Rogers didn't play as well this past season. He was solid at times, but was inconsistent.

    Pick change; previously John Jenkins, NT



  13. New Orleans Saints: Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
    Another piece for New Orleans' new 3-4. The Saints could use a long-term solution at nose tackle behind Brodrick Bunkley.

  14. San Diego Chargers: Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia
    More help for Philip Rivers - but at the receiver position. Robert Meachem was a failed signing last year, so San Diego will look to replace him.

    Pick change; previously Terrance Williams, WR

  15. Miami Dolphins: Brandon Williams, NT, Missouri Southern
    The Dolphins franchised Randy Starks, but Paul Soliai is entering his walk year. That means both defensive tackles will be free agents next March. Miami has shown interest in plenty of defensive tackles this offseason, so it'll probably draft one early.

  16. St. Louis Rams: Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse
    The Rams have absolutely nothing at safety. Both Craig Dahl and Quintin Mikell are gone, leaving just Rodney McLeon and Darian Stewart at the position. Neither played very much in 2012.

  17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State
    Troy Polamalu can't seem to get healthy, while Ryan Clark, who just turned 33, will be entering his contract year. The Steelers need to get younger at safety.

  18. Dallas Cowboys: Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A&M The only real depth the Cowboys have behind DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer is Kyle Wilber, who is new to the position. Jerry Jones may decide to ignore Damontre Moore's character flaws.

    Pick change; previously Bennie Logan, DT

  19. New York Giants: Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers
    Keith Rivers just signed a 1-year deal, but he's not the long-term solution because he can never stay healthy. General manager Jerry Reese said that there needs to be better linebacker play next year.

  20. Miami Dolphins: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M
    The Dolphins added Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, and they also re-signed Brian Hartline, but that doesn't mean they won't take a receiver in the middle rounds. Davone Bess is due a non-guaranteed $2.63 million this season. Joe Philbin said he'll be competing for a roster spot, so Miami may just draft a cheaper solution.

    Pick change; previously Stedman Bailey, WR



  21. Minnesota Vikings: Travis Frederick, G/C, Wisconsin
    The Vikings could stand to bolster in the interior of their offensive line, as neither Charlie Johnson nor Brandon Fusco played well at guard this past season.

  22. Cincinnati Bengals: Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Tennessee Tech
    The Bengals drafted two receivers last year, but they still might be searching for another wideout. Da'Rick Rogers makes a ton of sense for Cincinnati as a wideout with tons of upside but off-the-field issues.

  23. Washington Redskins: D.J. Swearinger, S, South Carolina
    More secondary help for the Redskins. They need a safety to pair with Brandon Meriweather - assuming that Meriweather can actually stay on the field for a change.

  24. Indianapolis Colts: Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB, Auburn
    The Colts have issues with their pass rush. Robert Mathis just turned 32 and will be due $12 million in 2014 and 2015. Jerry Hughes has never lived up to expectations. Dwight Freeney is gone. Erik Walden was just signed for depth despite being incredibly overpaid.



  25. Seattle Seahawks: Jelani Jenkins, OLB, Florida
    The Seahawks are pretty thin at linebacker with Leroy Hill gone. They may want to bring someone in to compete for the weakside linebacker job.

  26. Green Bay Packers: David Quessenberry, G/C/OT, San Jose State
    Can anyone explain why Jeff Saturday was voted to the Pro Bowl? He didn't even start at the end of the season. The Packers had major problems at center after letting Scott Wells walk away, so they'll have to address that area in April. Ted Thompson would love to have someone like David Quessenberry, who can play pretty much any position.

  27. Houston Texans: Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
    The Texans have to find safety help in the wake of losing Glover Quin in free agency to the Lions.

    Pick change; previously Earl Wolff, S



  28. Denver Broncos: Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
    John Fox is not shy about using early selections on running backs. He needs one. Willis McGahee is old, Knowshon Moreno can't be trusted, and Ronnie Hillman's just a chance-of-pace back.

  29. New England Patriots: Dallas Thomas, G/OT, Tennessee
    The Patriots are looking for an offensive lineman for depth who could eventually start. Dallas Thomas will be considered because he's versatile, which is something Bill Belichick loves out of blockers.

  30. Atlanta Falcons: Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M
    As noted in my Atlanta Falcons Offseason Needs page, the Falcons' play at linebacker must improve. Stephen Nicholas can't be on the field on all three downs, while Akeem Dent was a disappointment in his first season as a starter. The team needs to find a linebacker capable of playing all three downs with Sean Weatherspoon.

  31. San Francisco 49ers: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
    The 49ers obviously have Vernon Davis as one of Colin Kaepernick's top targets, but Jim Harbaugh loves utilizing multiple tight ends. He used to have Delanie Walker as a No. 2 tight end option, but Walker signed with the Titans this offseason.

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Keenan Allen, WR, California
    The Ravens have to find a big possession receiver to help fill the void left by Anquan Boldin. Keenan Allen could fall way down because of his poor workout and shady Combine drug test. If so, the Ravens would be happy to have him.

    Pick change; previously Terrance Williams, WR

  33. Houston Texans: Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State
    The Texans love utilizing multiple tight ends. They'll be looking for another one this offseason in the wake of losing James Casey to the Eagles.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Reed, TE

  34. Kansas City Chiefs: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    The Chiefs re-signed Dwayne Bowe and added Donnie Avery, but they still need one more receiver for their new quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Stedman Bailey, WR

  35. Tennessee Titans: Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia
    The Titans signed Bernard Pollard and George Wilson, but they'll still consider using a mid-round pick on a young safety. They like to use three safeties, and Michael Griffin's status is uncertain because he's due more than $6 million per year in 2014-16.

Doesn't really change the pick, but the Bengals stated ~2 weeks ago that it's most likely Rey will start at Mike and Burfict at Will.

As far as Tampa grabbing a WR in the first round I beleive you are mistaken. They just recently signed Steve Smith and Ogletree. They don't need a WR as much as they need CB and DT help.

Manti Teo will end up in the first round between 19 and 28. Too many teams need a MLB. I believe the Vikings go with Teo and a WR with their first two picks if he's there. Spielman loves drafting ND players and they have all worked out pretty well so far. "Harrison Smith, Kyle Rudolph, John Sullivan and Robert Blanton." They have also done a ton of research on Teo. Only way they dont take him is if the Giants, Bears or Bengals somehow draft him first.

Hold the f*ck up Nick! Your basing your hack comment on commenters? The same ones I see posting things such as cut Brady, trade Newton?!? Oh wait I forgot our home team biased opinion is always correct. I know every year my Bears draft exactly who I think they should. I think every Eagles fan that booed the McNabb pick was pulling an April Fools joke, they never liked Ricky Williams. Wats your site I would love to read it.
Thanks for the weekly updates Walter. It gives me something to look forward to during this never ending wait till the draft.

It still seems to me that the Redskins, who need cornerbacks long-term and safety help immediately would go with David Amerson (NC State CB) at #51. He's available here at #51, and is number #53 on Charlie's Big Board. This would free them to follow their board and not make all the reaches you've selected for them in later rounds. This assumes that all high-rated DBs than Amerson have been selected by #51, which seems to be the case in this mock draft.
If Aboushi (OT from Virginia) is still there in round 5, I think the Redskins will take him. I've seen him play. He would likely be their swing tackle.
Lorenzo Alexander didn't just play rush linebacker. He was also an insider linebacker, defensive tackle and offensive lineman. The Redskins don't need to replace Alexander any more than they need to draft at those other positions. Which is to say that at #162 they will follow their Board. Remember Kirk Cousins?

I want to bet that the Packers will not be selecting a tight end, RB, or WR with their 26th pick. It's almost infuriating how much this site puts Eifert in as the first pick for the Packers, given that it shows that they have no knowledge of the team at all.

Thompson will not be drafting Eifert with the 26th pick. It not only doesn't mesh with his drafting philosophy, but is also not even close to being a team need at this point. The pick has to be D or if they love M. Watson or Pugh, maybe one of those guys. But even O-line would be a stretch given that we have drafted O-line two of the last three years with our first pick.

The Steelers have a bigger need for a CB, OLB or DE, RB and safety since the departures of Mundy, Harrison, Mendenhall, aging Kiesel, injury proned Polamalu and maybe even another Nose Tackle since the great HAMBINO Casey Hampton is getting to old and really is not worth the money to be holding up the roster. We don't need another Tight End Running Backs we should be fine in and put a full back.

with the Lions and the CBs! They drafted 3 last year and have Bartell and Houston. They need OL and DL way more than anything. Stafford and Johnson is where their money is and if Matthew is on his rear end its money wasted.

Here we go again with yet another terrible mock for my eagles. Yes round one will be either a tackle or a D lineman followed by the opposite choice in rd2. No QB will be drafted for the birds till about round 4 if at all. Then you mock a WR in the third im sorry but Walt you don't know ish!! You have the worst mock site out there right now. Reading some of the comments from other fans of teams around the league i find that the majority of them tend to agree with me on this as well.. get a real job you hack!

Walt, this is by far the best draft you have put together from a 49ers perspective. The only thing that I would change is to put Amerson in there instead of DJ.

I cannot promise you too many times that the Packers will definitely NOT be taking a tight end in this draft. There is too much defensive talent that will be left on the board to address a position the Packers love finding later in the draft. They talk about needing a replacement for Finley, what about for Picket??? No talent at TE makes the offense a little less explosive, no talent at NT makes a 3-4 defense worthless. And there are many players that could fit the bill at pick 26 on the D-line. I'm amazed at how many people think the Packers would make Eifert the pick, seriously amazed!

Perfect scenario for the Lions is to draft Fisher. If he's gone however, I'd like to see them approach it this way:

Cleveland and Miami both seem to have a pretty big need at corner. Dangle Millner out there to Miami, and then tell Cleveland if they don't move up that Miami will jump them and take Millner. Lions could still take Ansah plus gain an additional 2nd/3rd round pick. If Cleveland doesn't bite trade down with Miami and take Johnson/Warmack, plus likely get a 2nd and 4th/5th round pick

For the Dolphins: "2. Sheldon Richardson, DT - The Dolphins are reportedly looking to add a defensive tackle. They need depth, and both Randy Starks and Paul Soliai will be free agents next spring."

Even if they didn't have depth (and I would argue that they have decent-to-average depth at the position), I can't imagine them using a 1st round pick to address it (except perhaps for an elite player).
