This is a 2013 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right (I nailed seven in my Re-Draft Round 2 last year), but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2013 NFL Draft.

NFL Draft Recent Links:
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.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
The Jaguars can't go into the 2013 season with Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert as their quarterbacks. They just can't. No one would go to the games - flashy uniforms or not. There are rumors that Jacksonville likes both Ryan Nassib and Matt Barkley.
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.
Oakland Raiders: David Bakhtiari, OT/G, Colorado
The Raiders have to make sure their new quarterback is protected. They wanted to draft Luke Joeckel at No. 3, but they settle on another lineman instead.
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.
Cleveland Browns: Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers
Cornerback is a big need for the Browns. Sheldon Brown played well for Cleveland in 2012, but he's no longer on the roster. The Browns currently don't have anyone to fill the void across from Joe Haden. They brought in Brent Grimes for a visit, but he signed with the Dolphins instead.
Arizona Cardinals: J.J. Wilcox, S, Georgia Southern
Adrian Wilson and Kerry Rhodes were both cut, which opened up a major hole at safety for Arizona. Yeremiah Bell was signed, but he's just one player, and a short-term solution at that.
Tennessee Titans: Jamie Collins, DE/OLB, Southern Miss
The Titans have pretty weak depth at the defensive end position that they'll need to address.
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.
New York Jets: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
The Jets need a replacement at tight end after losing Dustin Keller to the Dolphins. They reportedly like Travis Kelce, so they'll take him if he's available at this juncture.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: B.W. Webb, CB, William & Mary
The Buccaneers traded for Darrelle Revis - go here to see the Revis trade grade - but they still need to add another corner.
Dallas Cowboys: Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A&M
The only real depth the Cowboys have behind DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer is Kyle Wilber, who is new to the position. Jerry Jones may decide to ignore Damontre Moore's character flaws.
New Orleans Saints: Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
Another piece for New Orleans' new 3-4. The Saints could use a long-term solution at nose tackle behind Brodrick Bunkley.
San Diego Chargers: Johnathan Franklin, RB, UCLA
I wanted to slot Jonathan Franklin earlier, but couldn't find a spot for him. The Chargers need a back to compete with Ryan Mathews.
Miami Dolphins: Johnathan Hankins, NT, Ohio State
The Dolphins franchised Randy Starks, but Paul Soliai is entering his walk year. That means both defensive tackles will be free agents next March. Miami has shown interest in plenty of defensive tackles this offseason, so it'll probably draft one early.
Buffalo Bills: Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB, Auburn
Something else the Bills must do on defense is find a potent pass-rusher to help them finally defeat Tom Brady.
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.
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.
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.
Miami Dolphins: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M
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.
New England Patriots: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
The Patriots could use some interior pass-rushing help, and Kawann Short is a good fit for their defense.
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.
Washington Redskins: Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State
The Redskins could defintiely draft two safeties. Brandon Meriweather is coming off a torn ACL and may not be ready for Week 1.
Indianapolis Colts: Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M
The Colts have shown interest in Christine Michael, who would be a solid complement for Vick Ballard.
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.
Green Bay Packers: David Quessenberry, G/C/OT, San Jose State
Can anyone explain why Jeff Saturday was voted to the Pro Bowl? He didn't even start at the end of the season. The Packers had major problems at center after letting Scott Wells walk away, so they'll have to address that area in April. Ted Thompson would love to have someone like David Quessenberry, who can play pretty much any position.
Houston Texans: Duke Williams, S, Nevada
The Texans have to find safety help in the wake of losing Glover Quin in free agency to the Lions.
Denver Broncos: Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame
I'm not trying to troll by slotting Manti Te'o this low. I just can't find a spot for him. He's going to be a huge distraction for whomever signs him. The Broncos have a strong locker room though, so maybe they can handle it.
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.
St. Louis Rams: Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
The Rams have to bring in a new running back now that Steven Jackson is with the Rams.
San Francisco 49ers: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon 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.
Baltimore Ravens: Keenan Allen, WR, California
The Ravens have to find a big possession receiver to help fill the void left by Anquan Boldin. Keenan Allen could fall way down because of his poor workout and shady Combine drug test. If so, the Ravens would be happy to have him.
Houston Texans: Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State
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.
Kansas City Chiefs: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
The Chiefs re-signed Dwayne Bowe and added Donnie Avery, but they still need one more receiver for their new quarterback.
Tennessee Titans: Earl Wolff, S, N.C. State
The Titans like to use three safeties, so they may target someone at that position on Day 2.
