First mock in quite some time for me. These picks are always subject to change but should reflect a need being filled, at least for the most part.

Enjoy. :]

2013 NFL Mock Draft

1. Kansas City - OT Luke Joeckel Texas A&M

Could obviously go QB but it's too early to anoint a QB this spot. Grabbing Joeckel can become a couple things. Either a cheaper more talented option if Albert leaves or re-sign Albert, grab Joeckel and go for a decent QB to fill in through FA or trade as a stop gap or grab a guy like Tyler Wilson at the top of round 2 although he very well may be gone by then.

2. Jacksonville - DE Damontre Moore Texas A&M

Jones is a real possibility here as well along with a QB but a true threat on the edge is too long overdue. Moore offers versatility for an odd or even front with a great blend of size, quickness and agility for a 6'4 250+ frame. Gus Bradley understands the value of a consistent edge threat to key the defense and Moore is the most intriguing high-floor/high-ceiling player in the draft.

3. Oakland - DT Star Lotulelei Utah

They could also go DE with Werner or CB but neither of them are the caliber of talent or at least potential Lotulelei possesses. With outstanding strength combined with athleticism reserved for very few athletes his size, Lotulelei is the type of D lineman that a defense can build off of and make those next to and behind him better. An extreme rarity.

4. Philadelphia - LB/DE Jarvis Jones Georgia

Trading back for picks may be the ideal option at this junction but instead they take arguably the best player in the draft here. Watching the tape Jones is an absolute stud on the field. Jones has excellent play recognition and non-stop hustle along with great explosion when rushing the passer. He also plays the run well despite his size. With the uncertainty of Philly going with an odd or even front he fits either very well.

5. Detroit - CB Dee Milliner Alabama

DE may end up being just much of a need of Avril leaves but Detroit must address the CB position. Milliner does not have outstanding athleticism often seen with high end corners but he does possess good height at over 6 feet and 198 pounds and has loads of experience against top-notch competition. Milliner would step on immediately and give Detroit a legit outside defender. DE can be addressed later.

6. Cleveland - DE Bjoern Werner Florida State

Chudzinski probably gives Weeden one more year before drafting a QB who actually has a future in next years draft but here they continue to build what could become a dominant defense. Werner is arguably the best overall defensive end in this draft and has been consistent with his play regardless of who lined up opposite him at FSU. He has uncommon strength for his size and can play in whatever defense Horton decides to implement.

7. Arizona - QB Matt Barkley USC

There are 3 QB's who could go this high but until they truly separate in the months leading up to the draft I'm going a different route. Barkley has been made to seem as if he's this broken, terrible prospect and he's not. Overall he's still the best QB in this draft from a day 1 perspective. Barkley can come in and immediately improve the offense. With Arians penchant for working with good QB's I would expect Barkley to solve their QB problem.

8. Buffalo - QB Tyler Wilson Arkansas

Some may want Smith but Wilson is the better prospect as of now despite his numbers which aren't so bad considering all that shenanigans that went on down there with no OL or any real weapons to throw to. Wilson has a gritty mindset and his teammates feed off of him. Wilson fits what Marrone and Hackett do offensively than Geno Smith. Nassib could feasibly go here as well and continue his study of the offense from Syracuse.

9. New York Jets - OLB Dion Jordan Oregon

With Geno Smith available it's possible they take him here. Well, not this time. Rex Ryan hasn't had an elite talent to rush the passer during his tenure in New York. Here he finally gets a ball of talent-filled clay to mold how he chooses. His ability to not only pass rush but cover as well is what makes him worthy of this pick. A little light. Jordan can add 15-20 lbs. and keep all his athleticism. Combined with the return of Revis this defense might just return to top form.

10. Tennessee - DT Sheldon Richardson Missouri

Warmack has been shown here often but when you lack playmakers in various spots its hard to justify taking a guard here. The Titans have some good pieces on defense but lack a true playmaker on the DL. Richardson compares favorably to Fletcher Cox last year. He's an explosive penetrator and has a great motor to along with his skill set.

11. San Diego - OT Eric Fisher Central Michigan

Time to see if Rivers' time is up or has he truly been a victim of extremely poor OL play. Fisher may not have had gone against good competition consistently but his 6 foot 8 305lb frame shouldn't possess the athleticism that it does. Fisher excels at pass blocking and while needing a bit of time to adjust to the NFL level he'll give Rivers confidence this year.

12. Miami - WR Cordarrelle Patterson Tennessee

Patterson is the most talented wideout in this draft. He has excellent size and is very explosive with the ball in his hands. Tannehill needs a #1 target and CP has all the tools and talent to be that. Experience is his biggest ?

13. Tampa Bay - CB Johnthan Banks Mississippi State

It's time to grab a true heir for when Barber leaves. Banks is tall, rangy, athletic but most importantly for this team is he's aggressive. His addition should at least marginally improve their disgusting pass defense.

14. Carolina - DT Johnathan Hankins Ohio State

Not much explanation needed. Someone needs to be added to improve this run defense. Hankins would without a doubt improve that and allow Kuechly and Beason to make more plays. Hankins' presence should allow Johnson and Hardy to improve their numbers as well.

15. New Orleans - DT Sharrif Floyd Florida

A true interior pass rush presence inside next to Hicks. Steps must be taken to improve a defense that ranked dead last by a HUGE margin in yards allowed. Floyd offers versatility as well due to his quickness and overall strength to disrupt both the run and the pass.

16. St. Louis - OG Chance Warmack Alabama

The Rams have a gift fall into their laps with arguably the best G prospect to come out in quite some time along with Iupati a few years back. Warmack will come in right away and have a tangible impact on that offensive line.

17. Pittsburgh - ILB Manti Te'o Notre Dame

Bringing in Te'o here gives them a yet another presence in that linebacking corps. He's big, strong instinctive and plays all 3 downs. This past season he's shown a real nose for the ball more-so than his earlier years. A leader on and off the field despite that crazy girlfriend story.

18. Dallas - OG Jonathan Cooper UNC

This could end up being a DE or even a QB but for now they grab the athletic Jonathan Cooper to shore up the interior of that line. Not the strongest man but he's this classes most technical and athletic guard. An instant upgrade.

19. New York Giants - DE Barkevious Mingo LSU

Mingo is a bit hard to gauge as far as draft slot but here he falls to the Giants and they add him as insurance for their pass rush. Mingo may not be an every down end but he will help the front four put fear into offenses hearts on obvious passing situations.

20. Chicago - TE Tyler Eifert Notre Dame

You want to be quarterback friendly, Trestman? Get the man another weapon. Eifert is the best all around tight end. Has prototypical size, adequate speed, block and pass catch ability similar to Kyle Rudolph. Nobody will be worth taking when they pick next and he should be a 1st down convert machine.

21. Cincinnati - S Eric Reid LSU

The Bengals don't have many glaring needs but safety is definitely one. Eric Reid will battle Matt Elam and Kenny Vaccaro for the top safety spot but Reid is an undeniable leader on the field and shines through with his play. Not the elite type of prospect but he's more than good enough to be a fixture at safety they have been searching for.

22. St. Louis (WAS) - WR Keenan Allen Cal

The run game got it's upgrade earlier now it's time the pass game does as well. Allen should come in and lock down the #1 spot on that receiving corps and be a go-to for Sam Bradford. With great hands and a knack for big plays if Allen played on a more prominent team he'd have a lot more hype.

23. Minnesota - WR DeAndre Hopkins Clemson

"Nuk" had himself a spectacular year for the Clemson Tigers while playing across from arguably the most talented WR in the country in Sammy Watkins and outplayed him. Watkins himself has great hands as well as route running. Understands coverages well is clutch. With or without Harvin, Hopkins will help take pressure off AP. Ponder's last year to show he's the long term answer.

24. Indianapolis - OL Barrett Jones Alabama

Indy needs help all over the OL with the exception of LT. Barrett Jones excelled at tackle, guard and center at Alabama and he can plugged in immediately, most likely at C and become Luck's right hand man when making protection calls and adjustments.

25. Seattle - DL Ezekiel Ansah BYU

Seattle needs some form of pass rush on the front four other than when Clemons is in and healthy. Ansah is extremely raw but that also means he has no bad habits and can be formed by Pete Caroll and new DC Dan Quinn who has done a great job with defensive lineman everywhere he's been. Ansah can line up virtually everywhere on a 4 man front. He's shown how tremendous of a football player he can be if coached up well. Insurance policy if Irvin doesn't pan out as Clemons' replacement.

26. Green Bay - LB Alec Ogletree Georgia

Some speed and tenacity is needed in the middle of that GB defense and Ogletree brings it. Very fast and seems to make plays on a consistent basis. Not bulked up enough to be a true gap filler but he is more talented than what is currently on the roster there. Should be able to make plays behind Raji.

27. Houston - WR Justin Hunter Tennessee

Johnson isn't going anywhere anytime soon so this pick should FINALLY give Houston a true #2 opposite Andre. Hunter suffered a torn ACL last season and returned to put up solid numbers at Tennessee when he was clearly still hindered. He could be gone by this point because Hunter is a WR in the mold of A.J. Green-not quite as talented-but he understands the game and can high point with the best of them. This former track star has the ability to take over for Andre whenever he decides to hang em up.

28. Denver - DT John Jenkins Georgia

Some beef is needed in the middle of that defense. Working alongside Wolfe along that line and collapsing the pocket will make Miller and Doom even more lethal. Jenkins isn't too much of a pass rusher but he's big and strong enough to drive offensive lineman back.

29. New England - DE Alex Okafor Texas

New England needs a true pass rushing threat and has for quite some time. Okafor offers versatility but is best suited for a 4 man front. He plays with a relentless motor and has a decent repertoire of pass rush moves. Not the most explosive but he is a hard worker who should fit in well in New England.

30. Atlanta - TE Zach Ertz Stanford

Whether or not Gonzalez returns this has to be the pick if he's available because Gonzalez will retire. If not this year then next. Ertz is the best pass catching tight end (arguably) in the draft and is in the same mold of Tony. He's an overall tight end. He block downfield, on the edge and is a force in the pass game. A perfect replacement at this point.

31. San Francisco - DL Jesse Williams Alabama

Some of the DL are getting long in the tooth or are liabilities to leave via free agency so they grab a replacement here. Williams is massive and extremely strong in the mold of a Red Bryant. Williams will come in and play NT and be an incredible presence given the fact he has Bowman and Willis to fly around and make even more plays while he occupies blockers. Has the raw strength to collapse the pocket.

32. Baltimore - S Matt Elam Florida

Reed doesn't have much time left and there's no inside backer worth taking here. Elam isn't the biggest guy but he can be a true center fielder and impacts the game in every facet. A worthy heir once Reed decides he is finished.

2nd Round

33. Jacksonville - QB Geno Smith WVU

34. Kansas City - QB Ryan Nassib Syracuse

35. Philadelphia - S Kenny Vaccaro Texas

36. Detroit - LB Arthur Brown Kansas State

37. Cincinnati - RB Giovani Bernard UNC

38. Arizona - OT Lane Johnson Oklahoma

39. New York Jets - QB Mike Glennon N.C. State

40. Tennessee - OG Larry Warford Kentucky

41. Buffalo - WR Terrance Williams Baylor

42. Miami - CB Xavier Rhodes Florida State

43. Tampa Bay - WR Tavon Austin WVU

44. Carolina - OL Dallas Thomas Tennessee

45. San Diego - CB Jordan Poyer Oregon State

46. St. Louis - OT Kyle Long Oregon

47. Dallas - S Tony Jefferson Oklahoma

48. Pittsburgh - NT Brandon Williams Missouri Southern

49. New York Giants - CB David Amerson N.C. State

50. Chicago - OT D.J. Fluker Alabama

51. Washington - CB Logan Ryan Rutgers

52. Minnesota - DT Bennie Logan LSU

53. Cincinnati - LB Khaseem Greene Rutgers

54. Miami - DT Sylvester Williams UNC

55. Green Bay - RB Eddie Lacy Alabama

56. Seattle - DL Margus Hunt SMU

57. Houston - NT Kawann Short Purdue

58. Denver - S D.J. Swearinger South Carolina

59. Baltimore - WR Da'Rick Rogers Tennessee Tech

60. San Francisco - DL Joe Kruger Utah

61. New England - OLB Chase Thomas Stanford

62. Atlanta - OT Oday Aboushi Virginia

I just don't think Werner is a fit in a 34 defense. Would rather go with Jordan or Mingo.

Don't like this Cardinals mock. Barkley is nowhere near the ability or potential to be a top 10 pick and I'm not a fan of Johnson

Not only that but Barkley doesn't fit Arians vertical offense.

Johnson is better than what on that squad right now and at minimum would be serviceable which would count as an upgrade for them.

On to Barkley,he had better zip and strength than given credit for. His arm is strong enough to make all the throws required in that offense and he throws one of the best deep balls around. He has a grasp of how pro offenses are ran and doesn't get mouth credit for te veteran-like things he does at this stage. He doesn't get enough credit. He'll show why he deserves to be the first QB selected.

Also has been reported that people around the league view him as the top QB in this draft due in part to those intangibles.

Appreciate the feedback, guys.

People don't look at how well Potter and Massie played the last half of the season. We need an interior lineman before we need a Tackle. Potter was serviceable and Massie was exceptional.

Not terrible for Minnesota, but I think...

1. Ogletree
2. Da'Rick Rogers (or Woods)

...would be a better draft.

Great first round pick for the Bears! Pugh in the 2nd round is a bit of a reach IMO. Would much rather have DJ Fluker OT from Alabama.

I'm fine with the Te'o pick now that it does look like he was not a part of it. Of course who knows what more odd details will come out.

Brandon Williams is too high for me in the second. I like him but not there. For me Sylvester Williams would be the better NT there if the Steelers go that way. Eddie Lacy is someone that I would like in the second. The Steelers didn't have a running game last year and Mendenhall looks like he is on the way out. Chase Thomas or a safety would be other options too.

vaccaro is fine.

I like this for the Eagles. The jury is out on Jones' health but I think he's going to be fine.

I'm a fan of Vaccaro too.
