A mock draft that will make your heads explode

NFP Mock Draft 3.0
National Football PostBy Russ Lande | National Football Post – 4 hours ago



Trying to predict what players will be chosen by specific teams is nearly impossible before the All Star games, Combine and Pro Days, but below is the first mock draft of the new year. As always I try to match hat I am hearing about team's desires with what I believe are the best players available, so take a look and send me your thoughts.

1. Kansas City Chiefs: Manti Te’o, MLB, Notre Dame, Senior: No quarterback warrants being the first overall pick and after Jovan Belcher’s suicide the Chiefs have a strong need for another impact linebacker and Te’o can be that player.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State, Junior: While many may expect the Jaguars to reach for a quarterback to replace Blaine Gabbert, we believe that Tim Tebow will be that player. So the new general manager can focus on improving the Jaguars pass rush, which has struggled with consistency in recent seasons.

3. Oakland Raiders: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M, Junior: With many needs the Raiders make the decision to draft Joeckel who is viewed as potentially one of the safer choices in the Draft. Joeckel could either upgrade the Raiders at left tackle and push Veldheer to the right side or could take over at right tackle while Veldheer stays on the left; either way the Raiders offensive line improves greatly.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M, Junior: Without Jason Peters playing left tackle in 2012 the Eagles’ offensive line struggled all season. So drafting Matthews gives them insurance in case Peters struggles to return from injury and could be a big upgrade at right tackle if Peters is healthy and back at left tackle for the 2013 season.

5. Detroit Lions: Kenny Vaccaro, SAF, Texas, Senior: Louis Delmas is starting to get the “injury prone” label and the Lions do not have a top level safety to play next to him. While some may view Vaccaro as a reach, we believe he would be an immediate starter for the Lions and would upgrade their pass defense.

6. Cleveland Browns: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama, Senior: The Browns have a ton of young offensive talent at the skill positions, but for them to blossom their offensive line needs to improve. Warmack would upgrade their interior offensive line play and improve their rushing attack immediately.

7. Arizona Cardinals: Mike Glennon, QB, N.C. State, Senior: Whomever the new head coach in Arizona ends up being, he likely will not want to count on Kolb, Skelton or Lindley for the future . So they draft the strong armed Glennon who reminds us a tremendous amount of Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

8. Buffalo Bills: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan, Junior: With OG Andy Levitre an unrestricted free agent and no established right tackle on the roster; the Bills grab Lewan who could start at right tackle from day one.

9. New York Jets: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia, Junior: While the Jets are likely to draft a quarterback to challenge Sanchez, they do not want to reach for one here. So they jump at the chance to add the explosive Jones who should upgrade their outside pass rush immediately.

10. Tennessee Titans: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama, Junior: The Titans have a number of holes, but the chance to add a strong and physical cornerback with pro bowl potential makes too much sense for them to pass up.

11. San Diego Chargers: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan, Senior: A better prospect coming out of school than Joe Staley, Fisher could take over at left tackle and help keep Philip Rivers upright for the rest of his career.

12. Miami Dolphins: Keenan Allen, WR, California, Junior: Quarterback Ryan Tannehill showed flashes that he can be the long term answer for the Dolphins, but he needs weapons. Allen is a big play receiver who can “take the top off the defense” to open everything up for their offense.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Oday Aboushi, OT, Virginia, Senior: The Buccaneers right side of their offensive line struggled with consistency in 2012, which leads to their choice of Aboushi who is strong, physical and consistent. He should challenge to start at either right tackle or right guard as a rookie.

14. Carolina Panthers: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah, Senior: Carolina has two quality defensive ends in Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy, but its interior defensive line continued to struggle in 2012. Lotulelei would be an impact player in the middle of its defensive line from day one, which would upgrade the Panthers’ defense.

15. New Orleans Saints: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri, Junior: Sedric Ellis is an unrestricted free agent and the Saints need to upgrade their defense. Richardson would give them an explosive, penetrating defensive tackle that would regularly make impact plays behind the LOS.

16. St. Louis Rams: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina, Senior: Quarterback Sam Bradford was constantly under pressure in 2012 and Cooper is an athletic and powerful lineman with the talent to start at guard or center for the Rams.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon, Senior: James Harrison was not the impact pass rusher in 2012 that he was earlier in his career and Lamarr Woodley struggled with injuries throughout 2012, so they add Jordan. Jordan could backup both in 2013 while adding explosiveness and speed to the Steelers pass rush.

18. Dallas Cowboys: Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State, Junior: Neither Jason Hatcher or Marcus Spears has become an elite defensive lineman and Hankins would add size and strength to the defensive end position in the Cowboys 34 scheme.

19. New York Giants: Ezekial Ansah, DE, BYU, Senior: Osi Umenyiora ‘s contract is up so he will likely not be back and Justin Tuck has recorded two straight up and down seasons. Ansah is raw, but similar to Jason Pierre Paul in terms of athleticism, competitiveness and potential.

20. Chicago Bears: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma, Senior: To say the Bears offensive line has been a major weakness in recent seasons would be an under-statement. Johnson has only played offensive tackle for two seasons and with his height, long arms and athleticism his upside is outstanding.

21 P. Cincinnati Bengals: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee, Junior: The Bengals hit big time on their selection of AJ Green and like the potential of Marvin jones, but the chance to grab Patterson, who reminds us a lot of Falcons’ receiver Roddy White, makes too much sense as he would be a great weapon opposite Green.

22 P. St. Louis Rams (From Washington): Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia, Senior: After upgrading their offensive line with their first first round pick, the Rams get the most explosive offensive weapon in the Draft for Bradford to throw to.

23 P. Baltimore Ravens: Alex Ogletree, LB, Georgia, Junior: With Ray Lewis coming off a major injury and entering his 18th season in 2013, the Ravens jump at chance to grab Ogletree who is the most explosive inside linebacker in the Draft.

24 P. Minnesota Vikings: Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama, Senior: Longtime stud defensive tackle Kevin Williams is 32, so the Vikings grab Williams who can be their third defensive tackle in 2013 and take over as starter when Williams is done.

25 P. Indianapolis Colts: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State, Senior: Ryan Grigson pulled off a great trade getting cornerback Vontae Davis and now he drafts Banks to shore up the other cornerback position.

26 P. Seattle Seahawks: Barrett Jones, C / OG, Alabama, Senior: Jones is not a top athlete, but he is a smart, aggressive and versatile lineman who could start at center, guard or even tackle for Seahawks in the future.

27 P. Green Bay Packers: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame, Senior: Current tight end Jermichael Finley is not expected to return to team in 2013, so the Packers upgrade the position by drafting Eifert whose combination of size, athleticism and hands are tough to find.

28 P. San Francisco 49ers: Margus Hunt, DE, SMU, Senior: Since defensive end Justin Smith was injured, the 49ers defense has struggled greatly, so they need to find a young defensive lineman to groom as his replacement. Hunt is an incredible athlete with great length, explosiveness and strength who could turn into a star in a season or two.

29 P. Houston Texans: Eric Reid, SAF, LSU, Junior: The Texans have been expected to draft a receiver in the first round to play opposite Andre Johnson every year and never have, so I believe they will continue that trend and focus on a different position. Reid is an active safety with the toughness to be a force against the run and the range and coverage skills to help the Texans deep coverage.

30 P. New England Patriots: Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M, Junior: The Patriots pass rush still struggles to get consistent pressure, so they take a gamble on Moore who has the talent to become a dominating outside linebacker in their system and bring positional versatility to their defense, which Belichick gives enormous weight to.

31 P. Atlanta Falcons: Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU, Junior: John Abraham is not getting any younger, so the Falcons draft Montgomery to backup Abraham and Biermann in 2013 and take over for Abraham when he retires.

32 P. Denver Broncos: David Amerson, CB, N.C. State, Junior: Champ Bailey is nearing the end of a Hall of Fame Career, so Coach Fox adds Amerson who has the combination of size, strength, willingness to play physical and coverage skills to be a solid all-around cornerback.
No Geno in the first round. Not very realistic AT ALL, but....if you could get Geno in the second round--and it was guarenteed--who would you pick #1?

If Geno Smith has a slightly better chance of panning out than Wilson or the rest of the QB class, we should take him. If Te'o is a little better than the next ILB, big ****in deal. We gotta spend our pick on a QB that absolutely has the best chance to pan out. That's our #1 priority in this draft no matter what.

Trading out of the #1 pick for a measly extra 2nd is stupid. If you guarantee me we get Geno and trade down then yeah maybe. Otherwise no dice. St Louis got 3 #1 and a #2 for the 2nd overall to drop 6 spots. No way I trade #1 and drop 8 spots for a 2nd. Stupid.

if we take an OT or Teo #1 I'm going to turn the draft off right away and stop thinking about football for several months...start posting in DC with Direkshun.

Resign Albert and Bowe

DRAFT A ****ING QB

I don't ****ing care if that QB turns out to be nothing better than JeMarcus Russell. WE WASTED $120M ON TYSON JACKSON AND MATT CASSEL.

Pretty ok with potentially throwing $23M down the drain on a QB bust and missing out on Monte ****ing T'eo or Luke Jizzel.

This time last year people had RGIII going to us at #11 and some didn't even have him in the first round. I predict the same will happen once dumb mother****ers start actually watching tape instead of talking out of their asses.

Its QB or nothing for the Chiefs. I would rather go with a young guy who fails than to go with a Alex Smith type who would get us another three years of 7-9. I think the fanbase would be a lot more forgiving that the Chiefs finally tried and failed than to go back to the Chiefs way. If our QB fails we repeat the exercise in three years.

Alex Smith is way better than a 7-9 QB

This one would be interesting

The Chiefs pass on Geno, only to see Oakland take him two spots later.

DISCLAIMER for SNR: * I have never seen a mock from Optimum Scouting before, Matt Williamson recommended them on twitter, and after checking around they do scout for agents and "professional teams" but that could also mean the arena league. *

http://www.optimumscouting.com/draft...medium=twitter

Quote:
1. Kansas City Chiefs – Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State*
While the team has tried (and for the most, failed) to add to its defensive line in recent drafts, it’s not as dominant as one would expect. Combine that with the fact that a new coach may consider a 4-3 defensive change, and that Bjoern Werner is the best player in the draft (from my perspective), he’s the best bang for the #1 pick buck. Quarterback is certainly an option, but it’s by no means a lock, and I’ll say they pass now in favor of Alex Smith and/or a 2nd round rookie instead to get maximum value.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars – Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri (Declared Article)
Adding to the defensive line (in particular, at DT) seems like the most logical move for the Jaguars, and fills a major need with Tyson Alualu being solid but not spectacular this year. Richardson is our top rated DT prospect, and showcases a fantastic motor, interior strength, and active pass rush ability. Similar to the Chiefs plan, attacking free agency/the 2nd round for a quarterback may be the wise decision in year one of a potential “rebuild” once again.

3. Oakland Raiders – Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
With Carson Palmer not showing much and Terrelle Pryor not someone to hang your career on, I’d expect Reggie McKenzie to make a move to find his franchise quarterback this season. The offensive pieces are in place, and while Geno isn’t a lock to be worth this high selection, he’s the best quarterback in the draft.

4. Philadelphia Eagles – Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M*
With Jason Peters returning and the Eagles offensive line already having talent, this may not seem like the logical answer. But without knowing who the new head coach will be, it’s unclear what the Eagles will do at their biggest need, quarterback. For now, offensive tackle seems like a safe idea, as the position players are already in place in Philly.

5. Detroit Lions – Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M (Declared Article)
With their draft needs (OG, WR, and CB) not matching with up value wise with the 5th pick in the draft, they’ll have to take the best player available. Adding to an already fantastic defensive line, Moore can replace free agent Cliff Avril and become the team’s new feature pass rusher on the edge.


6. Cleveland Browns – Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
With DT seemingly in good shape with Rubin/Taylor/Billy Winn, finishing up the defensive line with Dion Jordan paired with Jabaal Sheard (and moving Frostee Rucker to a rotational spot) could give this defensive line the completeness it needs to consistently cause havoc against Big Ben, Joe Flacco, and Andy Dalton.

7. Arizona Cardinals – Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M*
The Cardinals are in desperate help of a stable offensive line, and Matthews could make his case as the best in this class. The quarterback issue isn’t solved yet, but with Andy Reid having the inside track and possibly bringing Michael Vick with him, the offensive line should be where the team starts it’s building.

8. Buffalo Bills – Matt Barkley, QB, USC
The Bills have made it clear they need a franchise quarterback, and they’ll likely target there’s in the draft. With it being difficult to say who they’ll pick without a head coach, I’ll stick to our 2nd rated quarterback in Matt Barkley, though it could be anyone from Geno Smith, Mike Glennon, Tyler Wilson, and Ryan Nassib.

9. New York Jets – Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse
This is certainly a long-shot to happen, as it doesn’t seem teams are as intrigued/excited about Ryan Nassib as I am. But I know the Jets have serious interest in Nassib, they need a quarterback, and they likely won’t be able to get him in the 2nd round. A reach here, but so was Mark Sanchez at the time.

10. Tennessee Titans – Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
Defensive tackle isn’t a glaring need, but the Titans generally go with the best player available in each and every draft, and Star is arguably a Top 5 talent. Adding him to Jurrell Casey and Sen’Derrick Marks could give this team one of the best defensive lines in the AFC.


11. San Diego Chargers – Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
It may be crazy to think about now, but Eric Fisher may be the best offensive tackle in this draft class. He’s THAT talented. The Chargers need offensive line help badly, and Fisher has experience at left guard, right tackle, and left tackle, and should give Phillip Rivers some breathing room immediately.

12. Miami Dolphins – Robert Woods, WR, USC (Declared Article)
While the value doesn’t say to take a receiver at this point, the Dolphins have to address their biggest need early and often. Getting the first crack at the 2013 receiver class is a great luxury to have for Miami. I’ll take Robert Woods at this point, but Keenan Allen and DeAndre Hopkins (if he declares) are both options as well.

13. Tampa Bay Bucs – Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU*
While Manti Te’o gets (and deserves) most of the love at the lienbacker position, he may not be the best in this class. That belongs to Kevin Minter of LSU, who has been the unheralded reason for that team being a Top 10 ranked team all season. Fast, strong, instinctive, and aggressive, he’s the total package at linebacker.

14. Carolina Panthers –Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State (Declared Article)
The team has needed to address the defensive line for two seasons now, and have failed to do so. Luckily, Hankins is still here to build their interior presence, as he could develop into one of the league’s premier nose tackles.


15. New Orleans Saints – Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
Adding to the secondary seems to be a yearly need for New Orleans, but it’s clear to me they still have a need there. The best cornerback on the board, Banks may be a slight reach here, but quenches the Saints pass-defense thirst.

16. St. Louis Rams – Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan*
They invested heavily in the mid rounds at receiver last year, and I wouldn’t rush to think they’ll look at receiver early here either. The offensive line is still a concern, and the possibly of adding Lewan to push Rodger Saffold to the right side could be a dream option for Sam Bradford’s development.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers – Manti Te’o, ILB, Notre Dame
With Larry Foote’s contract expiring, the Steelers have a minor need on the interior. Having the luxury to add one of the country’s best and most instinctive linebackers is something the Steelers should relish, and adding Te’o makes this defense THAT much scarier for the future.

18. Dallas Cowboys – Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
Simply put, the Cowboys have consistently neglected the offensive line in the draft. Outside of Tyron Smith, who’s been good but not great, putting Doug Free as the starting offensive tackle, again, over rated in my eyes, and using free agency to add to the guard spots, the Cowboys are desperate for more stability for Romo. Warmack is the best offensive guard prospect in recent years, and should work wonders for the Cowboys passing game.

19. New York Giants – Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
Despite what the preconceived idea is on the Giants, the pass rush wasn’t nearly as consistent/dominant as it has been in year’s past. But the thought of adding Ansah to that crew of Pro Bowl talents is scary enough. Still, with few needs offensively, the Giants can either add a linebacker or have the luxury of getting one of the draft’s best athletes.

20. Chicago Bears - Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
Whoever the new coach is, they’ll likely be clamoring for offensive line help. While there’s no offensive tackle value at this point in the draft (DJ Flucker/Justin Pugh are solid but would

The thing about Werner is that you have to make the assumption that the new coach is going to completely overhaul the defense and move to a 4-3. Doesn't seem real bloody likely right now.

Geno is definately the best QB in this class and the cream will rise to the top before all is said and done. at Glennon being the only R.1 QB selected.

DISCLAIMER for SNR: * I have never seen a mock from Optimum Scouting before, Matt Williamson recommended them on twitter, and after checking around they do scout for agents and "professional teams" but that could also mean the arena league. *

I would rip your guts apart, but I'm enjoying the woody seeing Manti Te'o get drafted AFTER Kevin Minter.

By draft day, Te'o will drop completely out of the first round, but it's never too early to begin the dissemination of truth.
