2013 NFL Mock Draft: Round 2

Last update: Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013. Changes in all 4 rounds for Taylor Lewan going back to school.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
    The Jaguars will spend one of their first two picks on a quarterback. Blaine Gabbert is done starting for Jacksonville. He’s absolutely terrible. I never imagined that Matt Barkley could fall to Round 2, but it’s definitely a strong possibility now. He really cost himself by going back to school.

  2. Kansas City Chiefs: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee
    Kansas City’s new quarterback will need a new receiver if Dwayne Bowe leaves. I wouldn’t spend the money on Bowe; he’s overrated because he’s inconsistent and piles up most of his stats in garbage time. He was responsible for a ton of turnovers, including both of Matt Cassel’s interceptions against the Ravens.

  3. Philadelphia Eagles: Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
    Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman both finished in the top 12 for missed tackles among safeties even though they each were out of the lineup for a couple of games. They also blew tons of coverages each week. The Eagles must find at least one upgrade at the position.

  4. Detroit Lions: Barrett Jones, G/C/OT, Alabama
    Barrett Jones can play virtually any position on the offensive line, including center. Detroit’s current center, the declining Dominic Raiola, will be due $4.05 million in a 2013 walk year. Help is needed at guard as well, as Stephen Peteramn performed poorly.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 100-plus yards in four of the five games prior to 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. Giovani Bernard would complement Green-Ellis very well.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
    John Skelton just put on one of the worst quarterbacking performances of all time in Seattle, while Kevin Kolb, who is also iffy, cannot stay healthy. Oh, and let’s not forget Ryan Lindley, who might just be even worse than Skelton. They all made Brian Hoyer look like the second coming of Kurt Warner, as Hoyer was actually capable of getting the ball to Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.

    Arizona needs a franchise quarterback, and Fitzgerald, who generally has a say in whom his team drafts, will pull for one in the first two rounds.

  7. New York Jets: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
    The Jets need to take a chance on a young quarterback because Mark Sanchez is awful. They have to give their fans some hope, or they may lose more supporters than just Fireman Ed.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Margus Hunt, DE/DT, SMU
    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: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
    The Bills drafted a quarterback in the first round, so they’ll need to find a weapon for him. Steve Johnson is currently the only downfield play-maker on Buffalo’s roster.

  10. Miami Dolphins: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
    Stud defensive tackle Randy Starks will be a free agent in March. If the Dolphins can’t retain him, they’ll have to find a replacement this offseason.

  11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford
    Charlie Campbell (@DraftCampbell) has informed me that the Buccaneers will be targeting a tight end early in the 2013 NFL Draft. Dallas Clark is a worn-down free agent, while Luke Stocker has been a disappointment thus far. Josh Freeman needs a consistent intermediate target.

    Pick change; previously Xavier Rhodes, CB



  12. Carolina Panthers: Dallas Thomas, OT/G, Tennessee
    Jeff Otah was released before the start of the season, and right tackle Byron Bell struggled as a replacement. Meanwhile, left tackle Jordan Gross will be 33 in July, so the Panthers need some stability and young blood up front.

  13. San Diego Chargers: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
    The Chargers almost have to make this pick. Philip Rivers appears to be regressing, but it’s impossible to tell if that’s the case because he’s getting slaughtered behind a pathetic offensive line. San Diego cannot, under any circumstances, enter the 2013 season with Jared Gaither as its starting left tackle. He’s just way too injury-prone and unreliable.

  14. St. Louis Rams: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama
    Another upgrade for the Rams’ poor offensive line. They need to protect Sam Bradford. D.J. Fluker is the top prospect available who makes sense.

    Pick change; previously Alex Okafor, DE

  15. Dallas Cowboys: Eric Reid, S, LSU
    I’ve learned that the Cowboys are interested in Eric Reid. He makes sense for them, as the safety position was a major weak point after Barry Church tore his Achilles’ tendon. Church was extended prior to the injury, but he’s owed less than $1 million next year, so that won’t prevent Dallas from picking a safety early.

  16. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jawan Jamison, RB, Rutgers
    Rashard Mendenhall won’t be back next year, so the Steelers will need to find a running back to complement Jonathan Dwyer. Jawan Jamison, who declared for the 2013 NFL Draft recently, will bring an element that Pittsburgh’s offense has lacked since the days of Willie Parker.

    Pick change; previously Shayne Skov, ILB

  17. New York Giants: Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers
    The Giants have issues in the middle of their defense. The safety position is a problem, as is inside linebacker. Chase Blackburn shouldn’t be starting, while Keith Rivers, a free agent in March, can never get healthy. General manager Jerry Reese said that there needs to be better linebacker play next year.

    Pick change; previously Kawann Short, DT

  18. Chicago Bears: Oday Aboushi, OT, Virginia
    If you’ve watched Jay Cutler take a beating throughout this past season, you know that they need to find multiple upgrades for their struggling offensive line.

    Pick change; previously D.J. Fluker, OT



  19. Washington Redskins: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
    DeAngelo Hall, who has been inconsistent this year, is due $7.5 million in 2013, but none of it is guaranteed. Josh Wilson, meanwhile, will be entering his contract year. The Redskins will have to add some depth at cornerback.

    Pick change; previously Jordan Poyer, CB

  20. Minnesota Vikings: Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
    The Vikings can address one of their biggest needs with arguably the best player available. Defensive tackle is a big issue right now; Kevin Williams will turn 33 in August, and there’s no one of note playing next to him. Letroy Guion is a decent rotational guy but should not be a starter.

    Pick change; previously Robert Woods, WR

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: T.J. McDonald, S, USC
    The Bengals had a big need at safety, but they didn’t address the position until the fifth round this past April. They’ll put more effort into finding an upgrade the following offseason because they won’t survive with Reggie Nelson and the benched Taylor Mays (or cornerback Nate Clements, an impending free agent who was playing out of position) as their starters.

  22. Miami Dolphins: Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia
    Brian Hartline didn’ do very much since posting 200-plus yards at Arizona, so it’s clear that he’s not a No. 1. The Dolphins need a top option for the inconsistent Ryan Tannehill.



  23. Baltimore Ravens: Brennan Williams, OT, North Carolina
    The Ravens should look into finding a new left tackle. Michael Oher would be best suited at right tackle, which would allow Kelechi Osemele to move inside.

    Pick change; previously Oday Aboushi, OT

  24. Green Bay Packers: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
    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 may address the running back position early in the 2013 NFL Draft. Eddie Lacy and Harris would complement each other pretty well.

    Pick change; previously Joseph Randle, RB

  25. Seattle Seahawks: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina
    Seattle’s defense is dominant, but one thing the unit is lacking is a consistent interior pass-rushing presence. Perhaps Sylvester Williams and his six sacks this year can fix that.

  26. Houston Texans: Robert Woods, WR, USC
    The Texans have needed a No. 2 receiver for years, but now that Andre Johnson is into his 30s, it won’t be long before they have to secure a new No. 1 wideout for Matt Schaub.

    Pick change; previously Cobi Hamilton, WR

  27. San Francisco 49ers: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
    Teams are always looking for cornerback depth, especially if they have extra picks. Besides, Carlos Rogers isn’t playing as well this season. He’s been solid at times, but has been inconsistent.

    Pick change; previously Alex Okafor, DE/OLB

  28. New England Patriots: David Amerson, CB/S, N.C. State
    Despite Steve Gregory’s performance against the pathetic Jets, New England still has issues at safety it’ll need to address this offseason. David Amerson may have to move to safety in the NFL, but I’m sure Bill Belichick will love his versatility.

  29. Atlanta Falcons: Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
    Michael Turner is done. He’s looked like he’s been running in quicksand for most of this season, so he won’t be on the roster much longer.

    Pick change; previously Eddie Lacy, RB

  30. Denver Broncos: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky
    The Broncos need an upgrade on the offensive line. Right guard Manuel Ramirez was not getting the job done for the suddenly injury-prone Chris Kuper, who has barely seen the field this year. Zane Beadles isn’t good on the other side either. Denver can easily find an upgrade this April.

    Pick change; previously Everett Dawkins, DT
