» PREVIOUS BROOKS MOCK DRAFTS: JAN. 25
GENO SMITH QB WEST VIRGINIA
Smith has his flaws, but Andy Reid once drafted Donovan McNabb and developed him into a franchise-caliber quarterback.
DAMONTRE MOORE DE TEXAS A&M
The Jaguars' anemic pass rush only produced 20 sacks in 2012. Moore finished the season with 12.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss.
JARVIS JONES LB GEORGIA
Jones' speed and dynamic rush skills certainly will upgrade a Raiders pass rush that generated just 25 sacks in 2012.
LUKE JOECKEL OT TEXAS A&M
It is time for the Eagles to address their offensive-line woes by selecting the top offensive lineman in the draft.
BJOERN WERNER DE FLORIDA ST.
Jim Schwartz has openly discussed scrapping the Lions' wide-nine scheme, but that won't prevent Detroit from taking an athletic pass rusher early in the draft.
DEE MILLINER CB ALABAMA
The Browns need to find a complementary corner for Joe Haden to solidify a promising defense. Milliner is a technically sound cover man with great ball skills and instincts.
MATT BARKLEY QB USC
A lot has been made of Barkley's physical deficiencies (height, arm talent and athleticism), but few quarterbacks in this year's class can match his experience and knowledge directing a pro-style offense.
MIKE GLENNON QB N.C. STATE
Bills GM Buddy Nix wants to find a franchise quarterback in this year's draft. Glennon is not the perfect prospect, but he is a gifted pocket passer with A-plus arm talent.
BARKEVIOUS MINGO DE LSU
Rex Ryan needs a dominant edge rusher to key his blitz-heavy scheme. Mingo is raw, but natural athleticism could make him a disruptive force early in his career.
CHANCE WARMACK OG ALABAMA
Mike Munchak can appreciate a big, athletic interior blocker with the strength to move defenders off the ball.
JONATHAN COOPER OGNORTH CAROLINA
Fixing the offensive line should be the top priority in San Diego. Cooper is a rugged blocker with size, strength and power.
KEENAN ALLEN WRCALIFORNIA
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill performed well as a rookie starter without supreme talent on the perimeter. Allen is an ideal No. 1 receiver with a polished game that is suited for the pros.
XAVIER RHODES CBFLORIDA ST.
Greg Schiano needs a long, rangy corner with press cover skills to take his defense to the next level.
CORDARRELLE PATTERSON WRTENNESSEE
It's time for the Panthers to give Cam Newton a young, explosive playmaker to feature in the passing game.
SAM MONTGOMERY DELSU
Montgomery isn't a polished pass rusher, but his relentless motor produces sacks off the edge.
ERIC FISHER OTCENTRAL MICHIGAN
Fisher is one of the hottest prospects in the draft, based on his intriguing talent and potential. He displays the footwork and athleticism to develop into a franchise-caliber left tackle.
MATT ELAM SFLORIDA
Elam boasts the athleticism, tenacity and toughness to eventually replace Troy Polamalu as the designated playmaker in the secondary.
STAR LOTULELEI DTUTAH
Monte Kiffin needs an athletic defensive tackle capable of playing the one or three technique to implement his vaunted Tampa 2 scheme in Dallas.
D.J. FLUKER OTALABAMA
The G-Men need to find an immediate replacement for David Diehl at right tackle. Fluker could slide into his natural position as a potential first-year starter in New York.
MANTI TE'O ILBNOTRE DAME
The Bears could groom Te'o to eventually succeed Brian Urlacher in the middle or just hand him the keys to the defense in his first year.
DION JORDAN OLBOREGON
Marvin Lewis could elect to add more firepower to a defensive line that overwhelms opponents with speed and athleticism.
KENNY VACCARO SSTEXAS
The Rams' defense could use a versatile safety to handle the tight ends and slot receivers that thrive in the NFC West.
SHELDON RICHARDSON DTMISSOURI
Adding a wide receiver is certainly a priority in this draft, but Richardson is a high-motor defensive tackle with the athleticism to replace an aging Kevin Williams in the middle.
JOHNATHAN HANKINS DTOHIO ST.
Chuck Pagano could continue making over the Colts' defense by adding a stud nose tackle in the middle.
EZEKIEL ANSAH DEBYU
Pete Carroll and John Schneider have made a living gambling on dynamic athletes in the draft. Ansah has limited football experience, but his game is eerily similar to Jason Pierre-Paul's when he was coming out of college.
ALEC OGLETREE LBGEORGIA
The Packers need to add speed and athleticism to their linebacker corps. Ogletree is an explosive sideline-to-sideline defender with tremendous burst.
ROBERT WOODS WRUSC
The Texans need to add more playmakers to a passing game that is overly reliant on Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels.
SHARRIF FLOYD DT FLORIDA
John Fox has quickly remade the Broncos' defense in his first two seasons on the job, but a talented interior defender would create more one-on-one opportunities for Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil.
TAVON AUSTIN WRWEST VIRGINIA
Austin could be the versatile receiver who eventually replaces Wes Welker as the key playmaker in the slot.
ZACH ERTZ TESTANFORD
Thomas Dimitroff must find an immediate replacement for Tony Gonzalez. Ertz is a big-bodied pass catcher with great hands and ball skills.
KEVIN MINTER LBLSU
With Ray Lewis riding off into the sunset, the Ravens could opt for a tackling machine to fill the void in the middle.
JESSE WILLIAMS DT ALABAMA
Williams is a powerful interior defender with the capacity to man the point as the nose tackle in the 49ers' 3-4 front.
