Last update: Friday, April 27, 2013
This is a 2013 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft.

NFL Draft Recent Links:
Kansas City Chiefs: Nico Johnson, ILB, Alabama
The Chiefs need to find Jovan Belcher's replacement.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Kevin Reddick, LB, North Carolina
The Jaguars have a pretty lackluster linebacking corps, as Russell Allen and Geno Hayes currently surround Paul Posluszny.
Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon McGee, CB, Miami
It wouldn't surprise me to see the Eagles add a corner in Rounds 3-5 despite signing Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams. Neither is a No. 1 corner, so Philadelphia may want someone who can develop into one.
Detroit Lions: Michael Williams, TE, Alabama
The Lions are looking for another tight end after losing Will Heller this offseason.
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.
Cleveland Browns: Nick Kasa, TE, Colorado
The Browns signed Kellen Davis and Gary Barnidge, but that won't prevent them from drafting a tight end in the middle rounds.
Arizona Cardinals: Latavius Murray, RB, Central Florida
The Cardinals should bring in some competition at running back behind Rashard Mendenhall and Ryan Williams. Neither of those backs is reliable.
New York Jets: Trevardo Williams, DE/OLB, Connecticut
The Jets still haven't found their edge rusher, so they'll need to do that at some point.
Tennessee Titans: Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia
The Titans like to use three safeties, so they may spend a mid-round pick on a player at the position.
Buffalo Bills: Lavar Edwards, DE, LSU
The Bills spent tons of money on Mario Williams and Mark Anderson last offseason, but while the former picked up his play after the bye, the latter was dreadful whenever he was on the field. Buffalo needs to put as much pressure on the quarterback if it wants to unseat the Patriots in the division.
New Orleans Saints: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State
Jordan Poyer drops because of speed concerns, but this is a major steal for the Saints.
San Diego Chargers: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
New regimes mean new quarterbacks. All the Chargers have behind Philip Rivers is Charlie Whitehurst.
Green Bay Packers: Kwame Geathers, NT, Georgia
Kwame Geathers doesn't fill an immediate need, but he would help with depth right away. More importantly, he'd provide the Packers with a successor for Ryan Pickett and insurance just in case they can't retain B.J. Raji, who will be a free agent next spring.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
The Buccaneers are looking for a running back to use behind Doug Martin.
Carolina Panthers: Tavarres King, WR, Georgia
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.
St. Louis Rams: Oday Aboushi, G/OT, Virginia
The Rams haven't upgraded their offensive line yet in this 2013 NFL Mock Draft yet. Jeff Fisher vowed to bolster Sam Bradford's pass protection.
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.
Dallas Cowboys: Gerald Hodges, LB, Penn State
Going with a Penn State linebacker worked before. The Cowboys need depth in that area.
New York Giants: Jawan Jamison, RB, Rutgers
The Giants are set at running back right now with David Wilson and Andre Brown, but the latter will be a free agent next spring.
Chicago Bears: Brian Schwenke, C, California
The Bears want an interior lineman, and they've shown a ton of interest in Brian Schwenke.
Washington Redskins: Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas
The Redskins have to fix their secondary, but something else they should do is find some help at receiver. I think they'll do that if they get good value.
Minnesota Vikings: Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State
The Vikings have several expiring contracts next spring, so they'll need to bring in some insurance.
Cincinnati Bengals: Chase Thomas, DE/OLB, Stanford
The Bengals need some competition at strongside linebacker in the wake of losing Manny Lawson to the Bills.
San Francisco 49ers: Walter Stewart, DE/OLB, Cincinnati
The 49ers are all about drafting high-upside players and redshirting them until they're ready to play. They could do that with Walter Stewart, who would be a second-round prospect if it weren't for his injury concerns.
Seattle Seahawks: Luke Marquardt, OT, Azusa Pacific
The Seahawks have issues on the right side of their offensive line that they need to address.
Green Bay Packers: Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina
Before Erik Walden left, I wrote that the Packers need to make sure Walden wouldn't be on the field next year. It's strange that the Colts paid him so much money.
Houston Texans: Josh Boyce, WR, TCU
The Texans obviously need a receiver across from Andre Johnson, but they also have to find a future replacement for the perennial Pro Bowler. That's why they could double up at the position.
Denver Broncos: Ty Powell, LB, Harding
The Broncos don't have the greatest depth at linebacker, so a late-round pick could be used to bolster this area.
Washington Redskins: Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech
With so many cornerbacks heading for free agency next spring, the Redskins may double up on the position.
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.
Miami Dolphins: Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma
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.
Seattle Seahawks: Demetrius McCray, CB, Appalachian State
The Seahawks haven't drafted a cornerback yet, so here's one. Demetrius McCray is the type of tall, long corner Pete Carroll loves to have on his defense.
Miami Dolphins: Jordan Mills, OT, Louisiana Tech
Another tackle for a team that desperately needs help at the position.
Green Bay Packers: Chris Gragg, TE, Arkansas
Jermichael Finley will be back in 2013, but he'll be a free agent after the season. The Packers will need a contingency plan at tight end.
Baltimore Ravens: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson
I didn't want to have Andre Ellington fall this far, so I'll just have the Ravens take him as the best player available.
