Gil Brandt Mock Draft
LUKE JOECKEL OT TEXAS A&M
The Chiefs, who are likely to lose offensive lineman Branden Albert to free agency, take the best player available in the draft.
BJOERN WERNER DE FLORIDA ST.
The Jaguars need a pass rusher, and Werner is the best prospect in this class at getting after the quarterback.
GENO SMITH QB WEST VIRGINIA
With lots of needs, the Raiders take their chances with Smith, who carries some risk, but offers a significant potential reward.
CHANCE WARMACK OGALABAMA
The Eagles fill a need by making Warmack the first guard picked in the top 10 since 1997.
DEE MILLINER CBALABAMA
The Lions shore up their secondary with Milliner, who has the size teams are looking for at cornerback.
DAMONTRE MOORE DETEXAS A&M
The Browns need a pass rusher, so they go with the best one left on the board in Moore, who offers a ton of upside.
MATT BARKLEY QBUSC
The Cardinals attempt to solve their quarterback problem with Barkley, a four-year starter with experience leading a good team.
ALEC OGLETREE LBGEORGIA
Ogletree would help the Bills' defense a lot. Buffalo also needs receiver help, but that can be had later in the draft.
JARVIS JONES LBGEORGIA
Rex Ryan loves defense. Jones excels at rushing and playing in space.
STAR LOTULELEI DTUTAH
The Titans gave up more than 2,000 rushing yards this season; Lotulelei would be the perfect antidote for their troubles.
DION JORDAN OLBOREGON
The Chargers need a pass-rushing end; Jordan can also play in space in a 3-4 defense.
EZEKIEL ANSAH DEBYU
The upside on Ansah? That he turns into the next Jason Pierre-Paul.
D.J. FLUKER OTALABAMA
Fluker is strong and is good in the run game. He'd give the Bucs someone to pair with left tackle Donald Penn.
TERRANCE WILLIAMS WRBAYLOR
The prodigious Williams could give Cam Newton another weapon in the passing attack.
KENNY VACCARO SSTEXAS
The Saints gave up 440.1 yards per game in 2012, worst in the NFL. Vaccaro can play against the run or the pass.
EDDIE LACY RBALABAMA
With veteran running back Steven Jackson possibly on the way out, the Rams could turn to Lacy, the kind of big back that coach Jeff Fisher likes.
SHELDON RICHARDSON DTMISSOURI
The strong, athletic Richardson could be a replacement for veteran nose tackle Casey Hampton.
ERIC FISHER OTCENTRAL MICHIGAN
Fisher, who has tons of upside, could step in and start at right tackle immediately for the Cowboys, whose troubles on the line were well-documented in 2012.
MANTI TE'O ILBNOTRE DAME
The Giants need linebacker help, and Te'o is the kind of player they like, his rough showing at the BCS Championship Game notwithstanding.
ZACH ERTZ TESTANFORD
Ertz would boost both the running and the passing game for the Bears.
BARKEVIOUS MINGO DELSU
Mingo has the potential to be an outstanding pass rusher. He could be the replacement for Michael Johnson, who's set to become a free agent.
KEENAN ALLEN WRCALIFORNIA
Fisher gives Sam Bradford another target in Allen, who excelled at Cal despite lacking a serviceable quarterback.
SHARRIF FLOYD DTFLORIDA
The Vikings need a speedy receiver, but that would be a reach here, so they go with Floyd, who has strength and some pass-rushing ability.
ALEX OKAFOR DETEXAS
In need of defensive help, the Colts pick the speedy Okafor, who stood out in the Alamo Bowl, to replace veteran Dwight Freeney.
DEANDRE HOPKINS WRCLEMSON
The Seahawks have very good young players at most positions, though they could use a receiver who can get some separation. Hopkins might be a bit of a reach, but he's quick.
TRAVIS FREDERICK CWISCONSIN
With Jeff Saturday likely on his way out, Frederick, who can play center and guard, could step in and help the Packers right away.
TYLER EIFERT TENOTRE DAME
The Texans go with Eifert, a tight end who can block and catch passes.
JOHNTHAN BANKS CBMISSISSIPPI ST.
The Broncos had trouble defending the pass against the Ravens in a playoff loss. Banks lacks great speed, but he has very good ball skills.
JOHN JENKINS DTGEORGIA
The Patriots also go for the best player left by taking Jenkins, a strong defensive tackle with very good short-area quickness.
KAWANN SHORT DTPURDUE
Short, a big, explosive guy who plays with good effort, could give the Falcons some much-needed defensive help.
SAM MONTGOMERY DE LSU
The Ravens are getting older on defense. The hard-playing Montgomery led LSU in sacks and tackles for a loss in 2012.
JOHNATHAN HANKINS DT OHIO ST.
The 49ers are stacked with young talent, so they take the best player still on the board in Hankins, who needs to get better at rushing the passer.
