    *** 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: Kiko Alonso, ILB, Oregon
    The Chiefs pretty much sent everyone to Oregon’s Pro Day, so Andy Reid had a good look at Kiko Alonso, who could perhaps be Jovan Belcher’s replacement.

    Follow @walterfootball for updates.

  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: David Bakhtiari, OT/G, Colorado
    David Bakhtiari would fill a big need for the Jaguars. General manager David Caldwell was recently asked who his right tackle was, and he couldn’t answer that question.

    Pick change; previously Sio Moore, DE/OLB

  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: Matt Barkley, QB, USC
    Matt Barkley may not go in the third round, but he’s probably not being chosen in the first round either, given that he declined his draft invitation. He’s a likely second-round choice, but I couldn’t fit him in. Maybe the Raiders will trade a future selection for him. He’d fit their offensive system very well.



  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: Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee
    Michael Lombardi signed Jason Campbell to compete with Brandon Weeden for the starting job, but neither quarterback is a long-term solution. The Browns will probably draft a signal-caller in Rounds 3 or 4.

    Pick change; previously Matt Scott, QB

  7. 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.

  8. Tennessee Titans: Jamie Collins, DE/OLB, Southern Miss
    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.

    Pick change; previously Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB

  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 failed to land a cornerback in the first round of this mock draft update, so they’ll need to do so on Day 2. Their cornerback corps is an abomination.

  12. San Francisco 49ers: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State
    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 D.J. Hayden, CB



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

    Pick change; previously Marc Anthony, CB

  14. San Diego Chargers: Sio Moore, DE/OLB, Connecticut
    The Chargers drafted Melvin Ingram in the first round last year, but they need another pass-rusher because Shaun Phillips is gone.

    Pick change; previously Dallas Thomas, G/OT

  15. Miami Dolphins: Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina
    The Dolphins don’t seem to like Daniel Thomas very much, so they may consider a mid-round complement for Lamar Miller.

  16. St. Louis Rams: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    The Rams lost Danny Amendola to the Patriots, so they’re in desperate need for receiver help. They can’t go into the 2013 season with Chris Givens and Brian Quick being Sam Bradford’s top options at wideout.

    Pick change; previously Bacarri Rambo, S

  17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse
    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: 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.

  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.

    Pick change; previously David Bakhtiari, OT/G

  20. Miami Dolphins: Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia
    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.



  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: Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State
    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.

    Pick change; previously Damontre Moore, DE/OLB



  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: J.J. Wilcox, S, Georgia Southern
    The Packers brought in Michael Huff for a visit, but ultimately watched him sign with the Ravens. They want help at safety next to Morgan Burnett.

    Pick change; previously David Quessenberry, G/C/OT

  27. Houston Texans: Earl Wolff, S, N.C. State
    The Texans have to find safety help in the wake of losing Glover Quin in free agency to the Lions.

    Pick change; previously Jon Bostic, ILB

  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.

    Pick change; previously Chris Faulk, OT/G

  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.

    Pick change; previously Jamie Collins, DE/OLB

  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.

    Pick change; previously Terrance Williams, WR

  32. Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
    The Ravens suddenly have glaring issues at cornerback. Lardarius Webb tore an ACL for the second time in his career, while Cary Williams just signed with the Eagles.

    Pick change; previously Vince Williams, ILB

  33. Houston Texans: Jordan Reed, TE, Florida
    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 J.J. Wilcox, S

  34. Kansas City Chiefs: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M
    The Chiefs re-signed Dwayne Bowe and added Donnie Avery, but they still need one more receiver for their new quarterback.

    Pick change; previously Sam Montgomery, DE

  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.

    Pick change; previously Aaron Dobson, WR
