I don't think Simmons or Ingram is some kind of franchise savior. Simmons is a great fit as a 4 in the modern NBA though because he can guard inside and on the perimeter, rebound, handle the ball like a guard, and score inside. Even if he never develops a reliable jumper, he is still going to be a very valuable player. I see him as a better version of Draymond Green who can create offense on his own much better than Green.
Unlike the Reader Mock Draft, this Rapid Reader Mock Draft will take place on just one day. Vote on the picks for the 2013 NFL Draft below. As soon as a prospect reaches 100 votes, I will move on to the next selection. Look for updates on Twitter @walterfootball.
Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
Luke Joeckel won this vote, easily beating Eric Fisher (17 votes).
Jacksonville Jaguars: Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
This poll ran long because I was asleep. Dion Jordan won by 200 votes.
Oakland Raiders: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
Star Lotulelei was the only prospect close to Sharrif Floyd, earning 33 votes.
Philadelphia Eagles: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
Eric Fisher beat out Geno Smith by a healthy margin; the quarterback managed 68 votes, but it wasn't enough. Star Lotulelei was third with 44 votes.
Detroit Lions: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
This was a very close, three-way race. Dee Milliner won, edging out Lane Johnson and Ezekiel Ansah, both of whom had 85 votes.
Cleveland Browns: Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU
Despite there being tons of options, this one wasn't close. Barkevious Mingo (34 votes) was the nearest competitor.
Arizona Cardinals: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
Blowout. Barely anyone else received more than 10 votes.
Buffalo Bills: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Tavon Austin (34 votes) was really the only prospect close to Geno Smith.
New York Jets: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU
Barkevious Mingo maintained about a 15-vote lead over Star Lotulelei throughout the voting for this pick.
Tennessee Titans: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama
Jonathan Cooper (64 votes) and Star Lotulelei (50 votes) hung around, but Chance Warmack ultimately prevailed.
San Diego Chargers: Jonathan Cooper, G/C, North Carolina
Jonathan Cooper won this pretty easily, beating out D.J. Fluker (59 votes) and Star Lotulelei (57 votes).
Miami Dolphins: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
Voting for this pick took a while because Star Lotulelei, D.J. Fluker, Tyler Eifert and Tavon Austin received a healthy amount of votes.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah
This one wasn't close. Star Lotulelei won by 70 votes.
Carolina Panthers: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
Sheldon Richardson won quite easily, though this wasn't as much of a blowout as the previous pick was. Tavon Austin (57 votes) came in second.
New Orleans Saints: Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, Georgia
This wasn't much of a challenge for Jarvis Jones. The next-closest prospect was Kenny Vaccaro, who had 41 votes.
St. Louis Rams: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
As expected, Tavon Austin won this voting quite easily. No one else had more than 25 votes.
