*** 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 ***
Jacksonville Jaguars: Sanders Commings, CB/S, Georgia
Derek Cox signed with the Broncos. Aaron Ross signed with the Giants. Rashean Mathis and William Middleton are gone. That leaves two guys named Mike Harris and Alan Ball as the starting cornerbacks. That's not good.
Sanders Commings fits perfectly into Gus Bradley's system as a tall, lanky corner.
Follow @walterfootball for updates.
Kansas City Chiefs: Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU
No one should be surprised if Sam Montgomery falls to the fourth or fifth round. His comments about quitting and betting on football have drawn some serious red flags. However, he's the best player available and fills a big need for Kansas City.
The Chiefs need pass-rushing depth, and Montgomery fits the scheme well. Plus, Andy Reid has a history of giving chances to players with character issues.
Oakland Raiders: Ryan Otten, TE, San Jose State
The Raiders pretty much need everything, including an intermediate target for their new quarterback. Brandon Myers signed with the Giants, so there's a hole at tight end.
Philadelphia Eagles: Marquise Goodwin, WR/KR, Texas
The Eagles will be looking at a receiver in the middle rounds for two reasons. First, the injury-prone Jeremy Maclin is entering his contract year and could be traded. Second, Chip Kelly doesn't have anyone to handle his De'Anthony Thomas role.
Minnesota Vikings: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson
Toby Gerhart is also entering his contract year and could be traded. The Vikings will need a No. 2 back in 2014 and beyond.
Arizona Cardinals: Mike Glennon, QB, N.C. State
Mike Glennon has been linked to the Cardinals. You can check out my 2013 NFL Draft Rumors page for more. It could be smoke, but Glennon is a perfect fit for Bruce Arians' vertical offense.
Arizona just traded for Carson Palmer - see the grade for the Carson Palmer trade here - but that won't preclude the front office from selecting a quarterback in Round 3. The Cardinals can actually get out of the Palmer contract next spring if he doesn't work out, so they'll need an alternative option.
Cleveland Browns: Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers
If the Browns don't draft Dee Milliner at No. 6, they'll have to look elsewhere for a cornerback across from Joe Haden.
Pick change; previously Tyler Bray, QB
Buffalo Bills: Tharold Simon, CB, LSU
The Bills have addressed their offense with their first three picks, but it's now time to turn to the defense. Buffalo's greatest need on that side of the ball is at corner.
New York Jets: Dwayne Gratz, CB, Connecticut
The Jets will obviously have to find some cornerback help because Darrelle Revis was traded (go here to see my Revis trade grade). Rex Ryan used to love drafting corners when he was in Baltimore, but the Jets haven't possessed many picks to be able to do that because they've traded up for one too many bums.
Tennessee Titans: Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee
The Titans are rumored to like Tyler Bray, so maybe they'll use a mid-rounder on him.
Pick change; previously Zaviar Gooden, OLB
Carolina Panthers: Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
Panthers' head coach Commander Adama hinted that signing Mike Wallace was a possibility. That didn't happen, but it at least was an indication that Carolina is looking to upgrade the receiver position. Another possibility is drafting Colonel Tigh, as seen in my April Fools Mock Draft.
New Orleans Saints: T.J. McDonald, S, USC
The Saints get a steal here with T.J. McDonald, who will be able to challenge for one of the starting safety jobs.
San Diego Chargers: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
New regimes mean new quarterbacks. All the Chargers have behind Philip Rivers is Charlie Whitehurst.
Miami Dolphins: Zaviar Gooden, OLB, Missouri
Something the Dolphins had to do this offseason was find some linebacker depth because they're awfully thin there. They signed two expensive linebackers, but they also cut two in the process.
Pick change; previously Ty Powell, LB
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
The Buccaneers need an upgrade behind Doug Martin in the event that LeGarrette Blount is dealt.
Pick change; previously Stepfan Taylor, RB
St. Louis Rams: Hugh Thornton, G, Illinois
The Rams haven't upgraded their offensive line yet in this 2013 NFL Mock Draft yet. They'll likely use two picks to address this area, as Jeff Fisher vowed to bolster Sam Bradford's pass protection.
Dallas Cowboys: Bennie Logan, DT, LSU
The Cowboys need personnel for Monte Kiffin's 4-3 defense. It appears as though Jay Ratliff will be on the roster next year, which is a huge mistake typical of the post-Bill Parcells Jerry Jones era. Defensive tackle still needs to be addressed though.
Pick change; previously Stepfan Taylor, RB
Pittsburgh Steelers: John Simon, DE/OLB, Ohio State
The Steelers could definitely double up on pass-rushers in the 2013 NFL Draft. They're really hurting for depth at outside linebacker, and they really like John Simon.
New York Giants: Vinston Painter, OT, Virginia Tech
The Giants need to bring in a tackle to challenge David Diehl, who has looked like a human turnstile recently.
Chicago Bears: Brian Schwenke, C, California
The Bears want an interior lineman, and they've shown a ton of interest in Brian Schwenke.
Pick change; previously B.W. Webb, CB
Cincinnati Bengals: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
Cincinnati just drafted Dre Kirkpatrick in the first round last year, but an early cornerback selection is still in play because the team doesn't have much long-term cornerback depth. That's a problem because Mike Zimmer loves having three corners on the field.
Washington Redskins: Duke Williams, S, Nevada
The Redskins could defintiely draft two safeties. Brandon Meriweather is coming off a torn ACL and may not be ready for Week 1.
Minnesota Vikings: Earl Wolff, S, N.C. State
The Vikings did well with Harrison Smith, but they need another safety.
Pick change; previously Will Davis, CB
Indianapolis Colts: Aaron Mellette, WR, Elon
The Colts signed Darrius Heyward-Bey, but he can't be considered a safe option to start across from Reggie Wayne. The Colts need to bring in someone to challenge for that spot.
Green Bay Packers: Jordan Reed, TE, Florida
Jermichael Finley is coming back, but he'll be a free agent after next season.
Seattle Seahawks: Matt Scott, QB, Arizona
The Seahawks need a backup quarterback. They signed Brady Quinn, but Seattle could use more of a long-term solution behind Russell Wilson.
Houston Texans: Trevardo Williams, DE/OLB, Connecticut
The Texans lost Connor Barwin to the Eagles, so they'll have to find some depth behind Brooks Reed and Whitney Mercilus.
Denver Broncos: Shawn Williams, S, Georgia
Rahim Moore had that dumb play at the end of the Baltimore game, but safety help is really needed because Michael Adams isn't very good. He's going to be a 32-year-old entering his contract season anyway.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Brennan Williams, OT, North Carolina
Donald Penn struggled to close out the year, while Demar Dotson isn't very good. The Buccaneers will be looking to bring in another tackle.
Pick change; previously William Gholston, DE/DT
Atlanta Falcons: Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State
The Falcons are fully expected to double up on cornerbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft. They're so incredibly thin at the position.
San Francisco 49ers: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
There was some talk at the Combine about how the 49ers might spend a mid-round selection on Marcus Lattimore because they have so many draft choices. In the wake of the Alex Smith trade, that's an even greater possibility, as San Francisco can afford to take this sort of gamble. Lattimore may not be able to play in 2013, but the 49ers could have a stud back in 2014 and beyond.
Baltimore Ravens: Barrett Jones, G/C/OT, Alabama
Ozzie Newsome lands another steal with Barrett Jones, who can play four positions up front.
Pick change; previously Brennan Williams, OT
Baltimore Ravens: Chris Harper, WR, Kansas State
The Ravens could double up on the receiver position, given that there's not much on the roster behind Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.
San Francisco 49ers: Josh Evans, S, Florida
The 49ers could draft two safeties. One has to replace Dashon Goldson, while the other could take over for Donte Whitner in the near future. Whitner will be a free agent next spring.
Detroit Lions: William Gholston, DE/DT, Michigan State
The Lions could double up on defensive ends after losing both Kyle Vanden Bosch and Cliff Avril.
Pick change; previously Brian Schwenke, C/G
Atlanta Falcons: Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
Steven Jackson was signed as a short-term solution at running back. The Falcons will want to bring in an option for the future sometime soon.
