2013 NFL Draft Re-Mock: Picks 17-32

This is a 2013 NFL Draft Re-Mock, just in case you missed the big blue letters up top. I’m going back to 2013 and re-distributing all of the 2013 NFL Draft prospects to all of the teams in the 2013 NFL Draft order. This 2013 NFL Draft Re-Mock is based on how these players have performed in their careers, as well as the needs each team had back in 2013.

2013 NFL Draft Re-Mock: Picks 1-16



  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Jarvis Jones, OLB
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Jarvis Jones, OLB

    I almost forgot how much of a disappointment Jarvis Jones was. It seemed like he was such a steal at the time. Oh well.

    The Steelers had issues at cornerback in the early part of this decade, so Darius Slay, Detroit’s top cover man, would have been a great pick.

  2. Dallas Cowboys: Kyle Long, OT/G, Oregon
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Travis Frederick, C
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Chance Warmack, G

    “The interior of Dallas’ offensive line is an abomination.” This is what I wrote in my 2013 NFL Mock Draft, and the Cowboys obtained Travis Frederick. The Wisconsin product seemed like a reach at the time, but he ended up being a great pick. Here’s another solid blocker.



  3. New York Giants: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Justin Pugh, G/OT
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Dee Milliner, CB

    I wanted to mock Travis Kelce a bit earlier, but I couldn’t find a team that needed a tight end. The Giants certainly did back then, as the starter at their position was a guy named Brandon Myers, who signed a 1-year contract the previous month. Kelce would’ve been a stellar weapon for Eli Manning.

  4. Chicago Bears: Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Kyle Long, OT/G
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Desmond Trufant, CB

    The Bears just barely missed out on Kyle Long, but they can obtain another strong offensive line upgrade. Terron Armstead is very talented, but has had trouble staying healthy, which is why he wasn’t slotted higher in this re-draft.



  5. Cincinnati Bengals: Eric Reid, S, LSU
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Tyler Eifert, TE
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Eric Reid, S

    My mock pick and this re-mock selection will be the same, as Eric Reid is the top prospect available. Here’s the reasoning:

    “The Bengals had a big need at safety last spring, but they didn’t address the position until the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. 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.”

  6. St. Louis Rams: Adam Thielen, WR, Minnesota State
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Alec Ogletree, LB
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: DeAndre Hopkins, WR

    The Rams used one of their 2013 NFL Draft picks on Tavon Austin. Given what they know about Austin and Adam Thielen now, I’m sure they’d love to draft Thielen instead. Austin has mostly been a bust, while Thielen has emerged as one of the top slot receivers in the NFL.



  7. Minnesota Vikings: Brandon Williams, NT, Missouri Southern
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Sharrif Floyd, DT
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Sylvester Williams, DT

    The Vikings obviously had a big need at defensive tackle, as they selected one, and I had one slotted to them in my 2013 NFL Mock Draft. Brandon Williams is better than Sharrif Floyd because of health considerations. Floyd once seemed very promising, but he hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

  8. Indianapolis Colts: A.J. Bouye, CB, Central Florida
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Bjorn Werner, OLB
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Xavier Rhodes, CB

    Xavier Rhodes is better than the overrated A.J. Bouye, but Bouye was still one of the top 32 prospects from the 2013 NFL Draft. The Colts needed help at cornerback, as they didn’t really have a viable player across from Vontae Davis.



  9. Minnesota Vikings: Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Xavier Rhodes, CB
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Manti Te’o, LB

    I gave the Vikings a defensive tackle at the selection in which they drafted a defensive tackle. Here, I’m doing the same thing with cornerbacks. Logan Ryan, like A.J. Bouye, is not as good as Xavier Rhodes, but he’s good enough to be Minnesota’s choice at this spot.

  10. Green Bay Packers: Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Datone Jones, DT
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Datone Jones, DT

    Morgan Burnett was on Green Bay’s roster at this point, but he was the only viable safety the team had. The other starting safety was M.D. Jennings. Medical doctors are great and everything, but they don’t make for decent football players, so here’s an upgrade.



  11. Houston Texans: Ricky Wagner, OT, Wisconsin
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: DeAndre Hopkins, WR
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Justin Hunter, WR

    It’s been five years, and I’m still kicking myself for not mocking DeAndre Hopkins to the Texans. We knew they liked him, but I thought he wouldn’t be available. D’oh!

    There are no receivers worth taking, but the Texans had a big hole at right tackle, and Ricky Wagner is someone I tried to mock to teams earlier.

  12. Denver Broncos: Bennie Logan, DT, LSU
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Sylvester Williams, DT
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Tank Carradine, DE

    The Broncos didn’t always have a great defense. Their front was putrid going into the 2013 NFL Draft, as they needed help at both tackle and end. Sylvester Williams turned out to be a bust, but Bennie Logan has been a solid pro for both the Eagles and Chiefs.



  13. New England Patriots: Kenny Vaccaro, CB/S, Texas
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Jamie Collins, LB
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Jamar Taylor, CB

    I mocked a cornerback to the Patriots because some of their top players at the position, including Aqib Talib, were entering the season with expiring contracts. Talib ended up departing for Denver.

    Kenny Vaccaro could have played nickel corner for the Patriots. Vaccaro has been solid when healthy, but injuries have plagued him throughout his career.

  14. Atlanta Falcons: Robert Alford, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Desmond Trufant, CB
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Robert Alford, CB

    The Falcons spent two early picks on cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford. Trufant is long gone, but Alford remains. Alford has been inconsistent throughout his career, and he ideally wouldn’t have made the first-round cut in a re-mock, but this is how bad the 2013 NFL Draft class was.



  15. San Francisco 49ers: Alex Okafor, DE/OLB, Texas
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Eric Reid, S
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Sheldon Richardson, DT

    For the record, I thought the 49ers would move up for Sheldon Richardson, which is why I slotted him here. They could have used another player in the front seven, as their edge-rushing depth back in 2013 wasn’t very good – and this was before Aldon Smith started getting into trouble.

  16. Baltimore Ravens: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky
    Actual 2013 NFL Draft Pick: Matt Elam, S
    My 2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick: Matt Elam, S

    The Ravens had two of the best guards in the NFL back in 2013, as Marshal Yanda and Kelechi Osemele started for them. So, why Larry Warford? Well, he’s the best player available – I couldn’t find a spot for him earlier – and Osemele could have kicked out to right tackle to fill a huge void at that spot.
