    Back to Overreaction 2013 NFL Mock Draft: Picks 1-16

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State
    The Steelers go with the best player available and land a replacement for the aging Casey Hampton. Pittsburgh also seems to like Ohio State products.

  2. Dallas Cowboys: John Jenkins, DT, Georgia
    The Cowboys could use an improved presence on their defensive line. They almost took a lineman in the first round the past two years.

  3. New Orleans Saints: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
    TRADE: The Saints are without their second-round pick, so they will look to add more selections by moving down. Here, New Orleans finds a partner with the New York Giants. Richardson would be a great value at No. 19 and a perfect fit for the Saints.

  4. Chicago Bears: Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia
    The Bears' defense requires an impact player at middle linebacker. Brian Urlacher is just about done in his great career, so landing Ogletree would be a no-brainer considering there isn't a good left tackle available. Chicago would be a candidate to trade down as well since the team is without a third-round pick.

  5. Carolina Panthers: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
    TRADE: Carolina moved down with Cincinnati. The Panthers have to upgrade the weak interior of their defensive line. They're fortunate they can move down and still land a good tackle.

  6. Minnesota Vikings: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
    The Vikings need a big wideout to move the chains for Christian Ponder. They will especially need a receiver if they trade away Percy Harvin.

  7. St. Louis Rams: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU
    The Rams need an outside linebacker to upgrade their defense. Van Noy could be tremendous behind their defensive line and in front of their talented young secondary.

  8. Baltimore Ravens: Matt Elam, S, Florida
    The Ravens find a replacement for Ed Reed. They have to start replacing their Hall of Fame defenders.

  9. Indianapolis Colts: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
    The Colts' defense needs a play-maker on the back end. Vaccaro would provide a real presence for Indianapolis.

  10. Seattle Seahawks: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    The Seahawks need to land more receiving weapons for Russell Wilson. Williams is a nice value pick with his combination of size and speed.

  11. Arizona Cardinals: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
    TRADE: Arizona moves back into the first round with a trade with Green Bay. The Cardinals have to land a franchise quarterback next offseason, and Wilson's skill set would be a nice combination with their receiving corps.

  12. Houston Texans: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
    The Texans go with the best player available; a team can never have enough good defensive backs.

  13. Buffalo Bills: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
    TRADE: Buffalo makes a trade with San Francisco in order to move back into the first round to land a quarterback. Barkley could still end up being a first-rounder. Jake Locker was after an underwhelming senior season similar to Barkley's.

  14. New England Patriots: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
    The Patriots land a replacement for Wes Welker. Austin could be a great weapon to complement New England's tight ends.

  15. Atlanta Falcons: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
    The Falcons have to find a young pass-rusher to replace John Abraham. Ansah has a ton of upside.

  16. New York Jets: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
    TRADE: The Broncos moved out of the first round for the second straight season, and once again, they help the Jets make a deal to get a quarterback. Right now, Nassib is my favorite quarterback prospect in this draft class, and I think his stock is going to steadily rise over the months to come.

  1. Green Bay Packers: Barrett Jones, C, Alabama
    The Packers could use an upgrade for the interior of their offensive line, and Jones would be a great fit in Green Bay.

  1. Denver Broncos: Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina
    The Broncos improve their run blocking and pass protection with Cooper. They will need a strong line to keep Peyton Manning going.

  1. San Francisco 49ers: David Amerson, CB, N.C. State
    The 49ers have a loaded roster and can trade down to acquire future picks. This isn't a great draft class, so it makes sense for San Francisco to get more picks for better classes in the years to come. Amerson would be a nice fit, and the 49ers could use some youth at corner.

As much as the Cowboys should upgrade the interior of their D-Line.. I don't see them taking John Jenkins over Jonathan Cooper if he's still on the board at 18.

The Vikings should draft Desmond Trufant in Round 1

They should then Draft Hunter WR from Tenesse in Rnd 2

Then they should pick up Kenny Stills WR in RND 3

Then They should pick up Knile Davis, RB in Rnd 4

Tyler wilson Rnd 5

wow.. hope this is way off for the Bengals' first round plans. We don't need a pass rusher, we've got loads. Atkins is the best pass rushing DT in the league (and run stopping, by the way) and when healthy Dunlap blows almost every other DE away on QB disruptions per snap played. Gilberry has looked very good in a somewhat limited role, and DT Sims tends to blow up the line and shove someone back into the QB once per game or so when he's healthy. We've got Devon Still and Brandon Thompson who are 2nd year players still looking for their shot to get any real playing time, and I like them better than most of the DLs in this draft. Even taking MJ out of the mix (which shouldn't happen, $55mil of cap space should be plenty to re-sign our guys especially if we cut loose some overpaid backups), we've still got a very solid D-line. An OLB that can cover and also has good pass rush ability would be nice, but we don't need to draft a DL at all, much less trade up to do so in the first round.

We badly need a new MLB and SS, and maybe RB, possibly CB if we're not sure on Kirkpatrick starting at a high level to start 2013, and that's really it.

Bucs pick # 13
Who we should draft is questionable ?

Who every bucs fan would draft is cornerback!!

What I would end up doing is trading up to pick 20 for that pick and another 2nd rd pick then take David amerson or Xavier Rhodes !!

This would leave the bucs with the chance to replace olb Quincy black with khaseem Greene Rutgers and possibly get us zac ertz out of Stanford no too mention that 1st rd cornerback david amerson

If Barrett Jones is there when the pats pick they will jump on him. Pats want to rejuvenate their line and when the line always has someone hurt having someone to line up everywhere is nice. Bill always loves versatility

Van Noy is staying for his senior season. We either get OL or S.

Rams won't trade up.

They stay put or trade down. If Rams stay put, they coulg go two O-linemen in 1st, or, 1 O-lineman and saftey.

Rd. 2 is perfect for a linebacker!

where are picks 33-37?
StL Superman 12-31-2012 04:55 pm (total posts: 1)
8     9's a matter of circumstance. Fisher didn't watch his QB's get pummeled over and over again. Especially a QB with $50 million in guaranteed money. The Rams absolutely must upgrade their O-line from this draft. Joeckel is a great prospect and could start right away at LT, which would move Saffold to RT where he could be more productive. This could essentially shore up 2 positions with one player. Now if they could use that other first round pick to get Womack I think it would be an incredible upgrade for the Rams, IMO.

1)Defensive Back
I Like Dee Milliner,Bacarri Rambo Is A Stud And Is What I Call "Aggresive",Matt Elam & Desmond Trufant Are Shutdown Players And Have A Knack For The Ball

2)Defensive End
I Like Bjoern Warner,Damontre Moore,And Barkevuis Mingo Are Great Pass Rushers And Are Huge Upgrades.

3)Offensive Line(Mainly Guard)

I Like Dallas Thomas In The 2nd Round,He Got High Potential.Also Chance Warmack Is The Best Guard In The Draft And Has High Potential.
