1.1. Kansas City Chiefs select QB Geno Smith, West Virginia
I think the Chiefs would be best suited to trade down, but I just don't see a huge market for it this year. This pick could go a few ways including picking Tyler Wilson, but I think Smith fits better. Wilson seems to have Carson Palmer syndrome, in that there's not a throw that he won't make, resulting a ton of interceptions. The Chiefs lost the majority of their games due to turnover, and Geno is the safer pick. I expect Albert to be their LT for 2013 and beyond.

1.2. Jacksonville Jaguars select DT Star Lotulelei, Utah
As much as I agree with the Jags needing an upgrade at defensive end, I think Lotulelei is too much to pass up. He's already a NFL athlete, he just needs to improve his technique a bit. This isn't a Dontari Poe pick based purely on athleticism, because this kid can play immediately. The comparisons to Haloti Ngata are completely warranted.

1.3. Oakland Raiders select DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M
The Raiders need help all over their defense, and in todays NFL, a pass rush can make all the difference. It's impossible to ignore Moores production in the SEC, and I think he's definitely an early-candidate for DPOY regardless of who selects him. He's a sideline-to-sideline player who will give the Raiders some solid play from the end.

1.4. Philadelphia Eagles select LT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
A slight fall for my number one prospect, but the Eagles are lucky to have him. Peters is still an elite left tackle, but their right side is definitely struggling. Not only will Joeckel lock down the right tackle spot, he's the eventual replacement for Jason Peters at left tackle down the road.

1.5. Detroit Lions select DE Bjoern Werner, FSU
This might not be a popular pick, but I don't think there's much choice. The Lions are going to need a defensive end as bad as anyone in the draft, and they'll need one early. Avril probably won't be back, Vanden Bosch is awful, and they need someone for the future. Werner is a high-motor player, and could become a leader for their defense.

1.6. Cleveland Browns select OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia
I keep hearing from random "draft sources" that Jones will drop in the draft. I don't buy it. Here's a player that had 12.5 sacks, and 24.5 tackles for loss in the SEC, and until I hear concrete evidence that his health is a concern, he's a top-5 talent. The Browns could easily be one of the top-5 defenses for the 2013 season with this selection.

1.7. Arizona Cardinals select LT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
If I would have been the quarterback behind that offensive line in 2012, I would have considered retirement; it was that bad. The Cards had by far the worst offensive line in football, and they need to upgrade. Fisher has all the tools to be an anchor at left tackle for the next 7-8 years. Chance Warmack could be the pick here as well, but Fisher presents more value.

1.8. Buffalo Bills select QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas
With no clear-cut number one quarterback in this draft, I think the Bills would be best suited to wait it out. Wilson could easily challenge Smith for number one overall, but falls to the Bills at eight. Fitzpatrick isn't the answer for them, and I think Wilson is the most NFL-ready quarterback available for them.

1.9. New York Jets select DE Ezekiel Ansah, BYU
Ansah is a player that could rise even higher than this when it's all said and done. Single-handedly took over the Senior Bowl with 1.5 sacks, 3.0 TFL and a batted pass. I expect him to tear it up at the combine, and put himself in the conversation for the top-DE.

1.10. Tennessee Titans select DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri
Dee Milliner could be the choice here, but this is a pretty deep draft for CBs. Everyone is looking for the next Geno Atkins, and Richardson is a very similar player. His athleticism is ahead of his technique right now, so he doesn't light up the stat-sheet, but he's a great talent. I think as he improve his technique, you'll see an eventual pro-bowl defensive tackle.

1.11. San Diego Chargers select LG Chance Warmack, Alabama
I fully expect the Chargers to attack free agency to find a starting tackle, if they don't, Lane Johnson could easily be the selection here for a team desperately in need of a good tackle. Warmack is a plug-and-play LG that can make you forget about the position for the next decade. At 21 years old, he's got a lot of great years of football ahead of him.

1.12. Miami Dolphins select CB Dee Milliner, Alabama
Seems a bit low for someone Ive seen mocked as high as #5, but I think this is a reasonable spot for him. The Dolphins face the loss of Sean Smith, and would love to find a #1 cornerback in either the draft, or free agency. Milliner has great size, and good athleticism. Should immediately become their #1 corner.

1.13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers select FS Kenny Vaccaro, Texas
As much as they would love Milliner, I don't think Vaccaro is too shabby himself. Great fluidity for a safety, and should come in and form one of the best safety duo's in the league immediately. The Bucs remain an up and coming team, but need some serious help in the secondary.

1.14. Carolina Panthers select DT Jonathan Hankins, Ohio State
I really can't see another possibility here in all honesty. After seeing the Panthers get completely dismantled by Bryce Brown near the end of the season, it seems almost inevitable to select a defensive tackle. Hankins is a huge body with surprising athleticism, and should improve the run defense quickly.

1.15. New Orleans Saints select DE Dion Jordan, Oregon
With the Saints changing to a 3-4 defense, I think this pick makes a ton of sense. Jordan would play a similar role to SF LB Aldon Smith, and become a pass rushing linebacker. His weight at the combine will provide a good insight into how well he'll perform at a higher weight, but I think his athleticism trumps any concern behind his issues with gaining weight.

1.16. St. Louis Rams select WR Cordarelle Patterson, Tennessee
The Rams could look into either Lane Johnson, or Jonathan Cooper, but athletes like Patterson just don't last in the draft. Whether Amendola returns, I don't know, but Patterson would give Bradford a legitimate deep threat. At 6'3 with an expect 40 time in the 4.4 range, he's got a similar build to AJ Green minus the polished skills.

1.17. Pittsburgh Steelers select CB Jonathan Banks, Mississippi State
OLB remains the top need for the Steelers, but Banks is the BPA here. After Ike Taylor went down, things got really ugly for the Steelers. Even though Taylor will be back next season, he won't be there forever, and it'd be huge to have another big, physical corner that could match up with AJ Green, and Torrey Smith.

1.18. Dallas Cowboys select LG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina
Cooper is another very, very good guard prospect in this class. In any other class, he'd likely be the #1 guard prospect. I haven't seen an interior lineman with the quickness that Cooper has in a long time. He could stand to bulk up a little to handle the stronger linemen in the NFL, but I think he has a very bright future in this league.

1.19. New York Giants select LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia
A former safety, Ogletree has the tools to be an all-around player at linebacker. The Giants defense took a step back last year, and their linebacker struggled as a group. In a pass-heavy league, Ogletrees coverage skills will prove to be a huge selling point for him in the draft.

1.20. Chicago Bears select OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma
There's perhaps no player that has benefited more from a weak tackle class than Lane Johnson. A two-year starter at tackle, there's still some holes in his game, but he's the only remaining player worthy of a first round selection at his position.

1.21. Cincinnati Bengals select LB Arthur Brown, Kansas State
I still have no idea how he does it, but Arthur Brown plays so much bigger than his listed size. I've seen him take out guards, and single-handedly blow up a running play. His coverage skills are among the best of the linebacker in this class, and he has great instincts. If the Bengals move Burfict inside, I expect Brown to start at WILL, with Howard playing SAM. I expect Brown to be one of the biggest risers following the NFL combine.

1.22. St. Louis Rams select RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama
Another surprise here, the Rams pick up their future star at running back. With the uncertainty of Jackson returning, I think the Rams need to start looking at other options. Lacy actually compares pretty favourably to Jackson himself, and will help Bradford out in the passing game as well. Ideally, a good offensive lineman is sitting here, but that's not how the draft falls.

1.23. Minnesota Vikings select MLB Kevin Minter, LSU
If you think this is too high to Minter, you need to turn on the Texas A&M game where he almost single-handedly shut down Johnny Football. One of the most impressive single performances of this past season, I think it shows what he's capable of. A leader for the Tigers, he'd be a great fit for the Vikes.

1.24. Indianapolis Colts select DE Shariff Floyd, Florida
The Colts need to find more talent up front, and it could start with Floyd. Their defense was a pleasant surprise in 2012, but they could easily improve up front. Floyds best fit is at DE in the 3-4, and could slide inside to rush the passer on 3rd downs. Should improve the pass rush for the Colts.

1.25. Seattle Seahawks select DE Alex Okafor, Texas
The selection of Okafor would make a ton of sense for Seattle in my opinion. With Clemons possibly not being ready to start the season, Okafor would help fill the void left behind. Having a good defensive end would increase the value of a rush specialist like Bruce Irvin. Tight end is also possible here with Miller due to have a cap hit of $11M, but he was way too effective in the playoffs.

1.26. Green Bay Packers select OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU
Ignores bigger needs, but can you imagine Clay Matthews AND Barkevious Mingo as your rush linebackers? What better person for Mingo to learn from, than from Matthews himself. Offensive line is a concern here as well, as well as running back, but I don't think the Packers could pass on Mingo.

1.27. Houston Texans select WR Keenan Allen, Cal
I'm sure inside linebacker is their main concern this offseason, but Andre Johnson isn't getting any younger, and they lack a real threat opposite him. Look at the effectiveness of Atlanta for proof that having two good receivers can seriously benefit an offense.

1.28. Denver Broncos select CB Desmond Trufant, Washington
Wouldn't be surprised if Trufant was the #2 CB by the time the draft comes around. Was turning heads at the combine, and has the bloodlines that NFL teams covet. As much as Broncos fans don't want to hear this, Bailey is declining. Harris has been a very promising player, and Trufant could set them up at CB for a long time.

1.29. New England Patriots select WR DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson
Time is running out for Tom Brady, and picking a wide receiver would go a long way for improving for next year. The future of Wes Welker is up in the air, and he's going to need all the weapons he can get. I expect them to look defensive line as well, but the addition of Armond Armstead could make them wait until a later round.

1.30. Atlanta Falcons select DE Sam Montgomery, LSU
The Falcons are one of the most complete teams in the NFL right now, but they're not perfect. They could improve their pass rush with Montgomery from LSU, and get them back to the NFC Championship, and possibly further.

1.31. Baltimore Ravens select FS Matt Elam, Florida
Ed Reed isn't going to be there forever, although it seems like it already has been forever. Elam fits what the Ravens look for in a safety with his big-play ability, and aggressive play style. Would greatly benefit from a year behind Reed, and has the tools to develop into an elite safety in time.

1.32. San Francisco 49ers select CB Xavier Rhodes, FSU
My prediction for the Superbowl champion. 49ers are en-route to be the next big NFL dynasty, and it's all in thanks to the NFLs best defense. An eventual replacement could be possible for Justin Smith, but cornerbacks are a premium position in this league. Rhodes is a big, physical corner that fits the 49ers style of play.

Do you think Ziggy Ansah can play 3-4 OLB? Because if he can't, the Jets have absolutely no need for him.

Ziggy comes from a 3-4 defense in byu. Ansah has experience playing OLB, DE, and NT, since he played all 3 in college

My issue is that ansah is kinda raw, but its not horrible value... Just not great value as of now (IMO)

Last I read, the Jets were looking into some 4-3 looks on D, which I think would fit them better anyways. Pouha wasn't good at NT, and Coples' best fit would definitely be in a 4-3. Coples, and Ansah and end, with Wilkerson playing 3-tech on passing downs would be a pretty devastating pass rush, no?

Anyways, if they stick to the 3-4, Dion Jordan could be worth a look.

We're sticking with a 3-4. We did use a good amount of 4-3 looks this past season, but our base defense will remain a 3-4.

We have Kenrick Ellis to play NT.

Fine pick for the falcons. D-line be it DE or DT should be out #1 priority in this draft.

Don't love the Vikings pick, Minter isn't bad, but Keenan Allen is available, and I'd strongly consider him with how pressing the need at WR is.

Ok, Rex.

Well all this 4-3 speculation is from last offseason, so we kind of already know the answer. We used it mostly against teams that run a spread offense.
