Mayock's Mock:
Quote:
NFL Mock Draft: Eric Fisher fills No. 1 spot

By Mike Mayock |
Published: April 24, 2013 at 03:43 p.m.

PICK NO.
1

ERIC FISHER OTCENTRAL MICHIGAN

I think he's got more upside than Luke Joeckel, and I think there's very minimal downside. You can plug-and-play him for the next 10 years and you've got a potential All-Pro tackle.
PICK NO.
2

LUKE JOECKEL OTTEXAS A&M

David Caldwell takes whichever tackle's available to him, and in this case, it's Luke Joeckel. He's excellent in the run game, tremendous in the pass game, and I think that will finally give the Jaguars an identity on the offensive line, providing Blaine Gabbert an opportunity to throw the football.
PICK NO.
3

SHARRIF FLOYD DTFLORIDA

Floyd is the most explosive one-gap penetrator in this draft. Remember, with no second-round pick, the Raiders have to hit with this guy. He is the best defensive player in the draft on my board.
PICK NO.
4

LANE JOHNSON OTOKLAHOMA

He's the freakiest tackle I've ever seen in my life. And because of what Chip Kelly does -- up-tempo, maximize snaps, throw the bubble screens, throw the tunnel screens -- he needs a great athlete at left tackle.
Quote:
PICK NO.
5

ZIGGY ANSAH DEBYU

I think they were dying for Lane Johnson, but they have edge-rush issues. Ansah has one of the most intriguing stories in this draft. His upside? Can't even limit it. His movement skills are scary, and two years from now, he could be one of the best defensive players in the NFL.

PICK NO.
6

GENO SMITH QBWEST VIRGINIA

When I look at Geno, I see a kid who's got everything you want to see in a franchise quarterback, but there's just too much bad tape. I would not take him this early; I would go for an edge or a corner. However, I really think Joe Banner might pull the trigger on the quarterback from West Virginia.
PICK NO.
7

JONATHAN COOPER OGNORTH CAROLINA

Pass rusher Dion Jordan makes sense, but I really think Arizona needs help inside on the offensive line. I kind of like their tackles, believe it or not. Cooper is the most agile and best pass blocker of the interior offensive linemen in this draft.
PICK NO.
8

TAVON AUSTIN WRWEST VIRGINIA

The more I thought of Austin and the hole the Bills have at receiver -- with nobody but Stevie Johnson -- the more I said, 'They've got to generate some touches for an explosive playmaker,' and that's who Austin is. Forget 173 pounds. It doesn't matter.
PICK NO.
9

DION JORDAN DEOREGON

The most explosive 3-4 outside linebacker in this draft is Dion Jordan. I think down the road, he could be Aldon Smith. I think he could be Jason Taylor. If he puts on 20 pounds, he could be DeMarcus Ware. He's got everything you want; he just needs 20 pounds and some seasoning.
PICK NO.
10

DEE MILLINER CBALABAMA

I keep wanting to give Chance Warmack to somebody, and the Titans want interior offensive line help, but I think they need more help on defense. Plug in Milliner at corner, and you've got a big-time player who I think uplifts that entire defense.
PICK NO.
11

CHANCE WARMACK OGALABAMA

I had him rated as highly as anybody in the country this year. There were some concerns medically, and he's not quite as good in space, but if you're the Chargers, you plug him in at guard and your offensive line is better.
PICK NO.
12

D.J. FLUKER OTALABAMA

A little bit like a Phil Loadholt. He has long arms, average feet; he's a mountain of a man. Great in the run game, so your ground attack is going to get better in Miami, and your pass protection is going to get better, too.
PICK NO.
13

TYLER EIFERT TENOTRE DAME

Now we're going to prop up Mark Sanchez a little bit. In today's NFL, this kid matches up with everything that you want in a vertical tight end: At 6-foot-6, 250 pounds, he's a nightmare for a linebacker or a safety.
PICK NO.
14

SHELDON RICHARDSON DTMISSOURI

After Sharrif Floyd, this is the most explosive one-gap defensive tackle in our draft. This kid was so athletic at 310 pounds that they stood him up at linebacker and let him go sideline-to-sideline.
PICK NO.
15

BARKEVIOUS MINGO DELSU

What I love about this kid is his edge ability. I don't care if you line him up wide with his hand in the dirt or stand him up at linebacker -- he's one of the most explosive edge players in this draft. Do I think he's ready to compete in the run game? No, but I really love this kid coming off the edge, and in that 3-4, that's what you need.
PICK NO.
16

KENNY VACCARO SSTEXAS

The No. 1 safety on my board is Kenny Vaccaro. This kid can drop down and cover the slot. He's a good tackler. He immediately becomes a starter and a playmaker on the back end.
PICK NO.
17

JARVIS JONES OLBGEORGIA

I keep looking at Jarvis Jones on tape, and I don't care as much about the potential medical issues, I don't care that he ran 4.9. This kid plays football. He's explosive. He's a quick-twitch guy in short areas, and he reminds me a little bit of a LaMarr Woodley or a James Harrison. I just think he fits what Pittsburgh does.
PICK NO.
18

STAR LOTULELEI DTUTAH

I think the value for Star Lotulelei is too much for Dallas to pass up. They were No. 22 against the run a year ago. You plug him in with Jay Ratliff and Jason Hatcher, who are both in their 30s, and you're a better defense on Day 1.
PICK NO.
19

JUSTIN PUGH OTSYRACUSE

I think this is a great fit for what the Giants need. The right side of their offensive line is getting older, and this kid is a technician. I don't care about his 32-inch arms. I care about his footwork, his angles, his understanding of the game. His versatility will make the Giants a better football team.
PICK NO.
20

MANTI TE'O ILBNOTRE DAME

I think this kid's a three-down linebacker. I think he's a leader in your locker room. I understand all the off-the-field concerns, but at the end of the day, he's a leader, and you want him.
PICK NO.
21

ERIC REID FSLSU

I think he really fits the bill for them defensively. This is a bigger safety with great movement skills. He's a playmaker on the back end. I'd like to see him be a more consistent tackler, but trust me: Being coached by Mike Zimmer, he will become one.
PICK NO.
22

ALEC OGLETREE ILBGEORGIA

I think Ogletree -- along with Vaccaro -- gives their defense a whole new look. This will be one of the top defenses in the NFL.
PICK NO.
23

CORDARRELLE PATTERSON WRTENNESSEE

This kid is special with the football in his hands. Like Tavon Austin, he's one of the most explosive players in the draft. There are some immaturity issues; can he learn an offense? All those things come into play. But I really think GM Rick Spielman will be stunned and happy if he falls to here.
PICK NO.
24

D.J. HAYDEN CBHOUSTON

This kid might have the best story in the entire draft; he almost died on the practice field back in November. I think he's a great value at No. 24; he's the No. 1 corner on my board, and I think he fits to a T exactly what Chuck Pagano's scheme demands. He can play off, he can press, he tackles, he understands zone concepts, and he's slid a little further than I'd like to see. "Nobody in the league's ever come back from an injury like this," is what I keep hearing. And I keep saying, "But nobody hasn't."
PICK NO.
25

SYLVESTER WILLIAMS DTNORTH CAROLINA

Highly recruited, really gifted kid. For sure a two-down run defender. I also think he can push the pocket in sub situations. I think Sly Williams is a perfect fit for the Vikings.
PICK NO.
26

EDDIE LACY RBALABAMA

Let's stop this whole tailback-by-committee thing; I've had it. Lacy's going to come in and consolidate this position. This kid can play. If you don't think he can make you miss at 220 pounds, put on the tape against Missouri and watch him go 70 yards.
PICK NO.
27

JUSTIN HUNTER WRTENNESSEE

I can't figure a better landing spot for a young wide receiver than in the same room with Andre Johnson. Hunter drops too many balls and he's not tough over the middle. That's where I think Andre Johnson comes into play. This kid has all kinds of ability, and if he replicates No. 80's game, he'll turn into a professional, just like Andre.
PICK NO.
28

BJOERN WERNER DEFLORIDA ST.

What I like about this kid is he does everything well. I don't see one spectacular physical trait, but he does everything well. From my perspective, the Broncos had better plug him in there, because they lost a lot of sack value when they lost Elvis Dumervil.
PICK NO.
29

XAVIER RHODES CBFLORIDA ST.

They're ecstatic when Rhodes falls all the way to No. 29. He's 6-foot, 210 pounds with long arms; he's the ultimate press corner. I think this kid can develop off-man skills. I think he understands zone concepts and he fits what today's NFL is.
PICK NO.
30

DESMOND TRUFANT CBWASHINGTON

Trufant will start immediately opposite Asante Samuel. He's quick-footed, he's got some return skills, and I love the way he competed in the Senior Bowl.
PICK NO.
31

ZACH ERTZ TESTANFORD

In the real world, I think San Francisco trades up. Jimmy Harbaugh recruited Ertz out of high school to Stanford; there's a bond there. They lost Delanie Walker. Boy, does he fit the bill for that offense.
PICK NO.
32

MATT ELAM FSFLORIDA

He tackles, he's tough, he's got ball skills, he's a leader; I love everything about this kid except his height, and there's nothing I can do about that.

Pat Kirwan's Final Mock:
Quote:
NFL Mock Draft - 04/24/2013
ROUND 1
1. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

(2-14) Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M: The Chiefs could make this easy and get a deal done before the draft. Very reliable sources told me don't be surprised if it's Eric Fisher at the top spot. I talked with Joeckel this week and he said he had no idea if the Chiefs were going to take him.
Quote:
2. DETROIT LIONS (FROM JACKSONVILLE)

(4-12) Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan: If the Jags stay in this spot and stay true to their board they will take Joeckel or Fisher. A left tackle that can play for 10 years is always a solid pick. They will get some action to move down and the fall to No. 5 isn't bad. The Lions have the left tackle to protect Stafford.

3. OAKLAND RAIDERS

(4-12) Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida: If the Jags pass on the second left tackle the Raiders have a decision to make. Should they take the left tackle, move down or just take Floyd. At least three teams right below them need a left tackle and the Raiders need more picks.
4. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

(4-12) Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon: The Eagles are building a 3-4 defense and need an OLB with pass rush skills. Jordan played for Chip Kelly. If they take Jordan I would expect them to reenter the first round late and grab a QB. Either Geno Smith or E.J. Manuel could be the choice.
5. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (FROM DETROIT)

(2-14) Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young: The Jags got the guy they were going to take at No. 2 but picked up a draft pick to move down.
6. ARIZONA CARDINALS (FROM CLEVELAND)

(5-11) Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma: Arizona swaps spots with Cleveland to ensure they get left tackle Lane Johnson, LT Oklahoma and prevent San Diego or Miami from jumping ahead of them for Johnson.
7. CLEVELAND BROWNS (FROM ARIZONA)

(5-11) Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU: The Browns take Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU to build the pass rush they need. They will come back in the second round by packaging up picks to get a corner. I had a head coach tell me today that he likes Mingo more than Jordan.
8. BUFFALO BILLS

(6-10) Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama: The popular notion is that Ryan Nassib is the Bills pick but after watching Nassib at the Senior Bowl for a week, this is too high to take him. Later on, a reentry into the first or just waiting for the second round pick they should have a choice of Nassib, Barkley or even Glennon. The Bills better get a QB the fans can get excited about in this draft.
9. NEW YORK JETS

(6-10) Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama: It's clear the Jets have to manufacture a pass rush with pressure calls which eventually gets them in trouble, but Milliner at this point is to too good to pass up. A head coach told me today that Milliner is fine, health-wise, in his eyes.
10. TENNESSEE TITANS

(6-10) Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah: Star can run sideline to sideline, pressure the QB, collapse a pocket and stop the run game.
11. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

(7-9) Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina: The Chargers need offensive line help and this is the last first round graded player. Someone might reach for Menilik Watson but Cooper is ready now.
12. MIAMI DOLPHINS

(7-9) Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State: I was told by one secondary coach that Rhodes is the top corner on their board. If he's still available when Miami picks they solve the loss of Sean Smith.
13. NEW YORK JETS (FROM TAMPA BAY)

(6-10) Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia: The Jets fortify the defense with a productive pass rusher.
14. CAROLINA PANTHERS

(7-9) Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina: The Panthers need help on the inside of the defensive line and Williams beats out Sheldon Richardson, as a head coach told me Williams is the better pick and with Lotulelei gone.
15. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

(7-9) Kenny Vaccaro, FS, Texas: The OLB prospects are gone and Vaccaro sets the tone in the secondary.
16. ST. LOUIS RAMS

(7-8-1) Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia: The Rams have two picks in the first round and have to decide when to take the wide receiver and when to take the safety. No matter which way they go, the Steelers may react by taking the other player.
17. PITTSBURGH STEELERS

(8-8) Matt Elam, SS, Florida: I had a GM tell me this morning that Elam is one nasty player that brings it all the time. Sounds like a Steeler to me. Jarvis Jones and Kenny Vaccaro are off the board.
18. DALLAS COWBOYS

(8-8) D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama: This guy reminds the Cowboys of the Eric Williams days. He will open up the run game right away.
19. NEW YORK GIANTS

(9-7) Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State: A risky pick but the Giants did the same kind of thing when they took JPP.
20. CHICAGO BEARS

(10-6) Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee: The Bears may talk about a linebacker like Te'o or Ogeltree but they both have issues. I had a player tell me Patterson was the best athlete in the SEC and the head coach thinks passing game.
21. CINCINNATI BENGALS

(10-6) Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama: Not many think Lacy is going in the first round but last year three running backs did go in the first round, and played well. The Bengals will have a dangerous offense with Lacy behind Dalton.
22. ST. LOUIS RAMS (FROM WASHINGTON)

(7-8-1) Eric Reid, FS, LSU: Vaccaro is gone in this mock draft but Reid is an excellent second choice. He has range, ball skills and likes contact.
23. MINNESOTA VIKINGS

(10-6) Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri: The Vikings need a corner, which they will get in round two. With Sylvester Williams gone Richardson is too good to pass up.
24. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

(11-5) Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State: The Colts always seem to need defensive line help. Werner is big enough to handle the two gap responsibilities and quick enough to be a solid pass rusher.
25. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (FROM SEATTLE)

(10-6) Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: Greg Jennings and Hunter gives the Vikings fire power in the passing game. Hunter has speed and leaping ability.
26. GREEN BAY PACKERS

(11-5) Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame: Green Bay needs a safety that has a presence with Charles Woodson gone, but Elam and Vaccaro are gone. Eifert will be very productive at the other end of Aaron Rodgers' passes and, with Finley, will create a dangerous two tight end package like the Patriots have in New England.
27. HOUSTON TEXANS

(12-4) DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson: Hopkins had 18 touchdown receptions last year and the Texans don't get enough of that production from their receivers. Hopkins just doesn't drop balls and should have a very productive year opposite Andre Johnson.
28. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (FROM DENVER)

(4-12) Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: As Phil Simms said to me, Smith is the best QB in the draft and the top guy to run Chip Kelly's offense. The Broncos can come back in the second round with the Eagles' pick and take Damontre Moore, DE Texas A&M. You don't see his name in many mock drafts, but he's 20 years old with pass rush production. He has natural bend to get past tackles and could be reunited with his college teammate, Von Miller.
29. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

(12-4) Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State: The Patriots might like Bank's teammate Darius Slay, which is a good choice. Banks is a tall play maker who has a knack for interceptions.
30. ATLANTA FALCONS

(13-3) Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington: Trufant matches up with the best receivers, has great measurables and the Falcons lost Brent Grimes in free agency.
31. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

(11-4-1) Jonathan Cyprien, SS, Florida International: Cyprien really helped himself at the Senior Bowl and could get consideration. A defensive tackle is also a consideration.
32. BUFFALO BILLS (FROM BALTIMORE)

(6-10) Matt Barkley, QB, Southern California: The Bills take Matt Barkley, QB USC over Ryan Nassib of Syracuse. The Ravens will take Kevin Minter, LB LSU with the Bills' second-round pick. The Ravens could consider Manti Te'o, but Minter is better against the pass and a better guy to take on guards. In the Ravens scheme, Minter has a better chance to be a three-down player.

Post Re: Various 2012 NFL Mock drafts.
That's realistic also. If the Jags want Ansah (or any of the Des really) I don't think any go in the top 4, so a trade to 5, even if we just gave up a 3rd to do it would be worth it to them (maybe). I hope we wouldn't give up the 2nd to do that, but would understand if we think Fisher is the guy and LJ wont be there at 5 anyways.

McShay believes SD trades up to 2 to grab him, so it's not like he's slipping that far. Not sure why they only mentioned that on TV and not the online versions.

Yeah I just saw a tweet (fudge I hate that word) from him saying hes expecting it on a trade up, but then no mention of who theyd be trading with, and if that team can stilolg et theprospect he has them taking at whatever spot it is in the 1st rd theyd have to go to. Very odd. Said he cant project trades , hence why he didn't.. but still didn't mention who they would be trading with.

Round Two Mock Draft
Posted by Mike Wilkening on April 26, 2013, 11:23 AM EDT

After assessing each team’s draft needs, offensive and defensive approaches and the prospects still left on the board, here is PFT’s Round Two mock draft:

33. Jaguars: Cornerback Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State

34. 49ers: Nose tackle John Jenkins, Georgia

35. Eagles: Quarterback Geno Smith, West Virginia

36. Lions: Offensive guard Brian Winters, Kent State

37. Bengals: Cornerback Darius Slay, Mississippi State

38. Cardinals: Outside linebacker Cornelius Washington, Georgia

39. Jets: Quarterback Ryan Nassib, Syracuse

40. Titans: Wide receiver Justin Hunter, Tennessee

41. Bills: Tight end Zach Ertz, Stanford

42. Raiders: Quarterback Matt Barkley, USC

43. Buccaneers: Cornerback Jamar Taylor, Boise State

44. Panthers: Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Connecticut

45. Chargers: Nose tackle Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State

46. Bills: Offensive tackle Menelik Watson, Florida State

47. Cowboys: Running back Eddie Lacy, Alabama

48. Steelers: Linebacker Manti Te’o, Notre Dame

49. Giants: Tight end Gavin Escobar, San Diego State

50. Bears: Defensive tackle Kawann Short, Purdue

51. Redskins: Linebacker Kevin Minter, Louisiana State

52. Patriots: Wide receiver Robert Woods, Southern California

53. Bengals: Safety Johnathan Cyprien, Florida International

54. Dolphins: Cornerback Will Davis, Utah State

55. Packers: Nose tackle Jesse Williams, Alabama

56. Seahawks: Running back Andre Ellington, Clemson

57. Texans: Outside linebacker Damontre Moore, Texas A&M

58. Broncos: Defensive end Margus Hunt, Southern Methodist

59. Patriots: Center Barrett Jones, Alabama

60. Falcons: Defensive end Tank Carradine, Florida State

61. 49ers: Cornerback David Amerson, North Carolina State

62. Ravens: Wide receiver Keenan Allen, California

UPDATE 12:54 p.m. ET on Friday, April 26: A new addition to the mock is Florida International safety Johnathan Cyprien — surely a well-regarded prospect, as some have mentioned in the comments. After further review, he’s in. This bumped down Andre Ellington to No. 56. Also, I switched picks Nos. 40 and 41.

Post Re: Various 2012 NFL Mock drafts.
I'm seeing a lot of fluctuation in rankings and a lot of sites aren't on the same page about guys, so it's difficult to do a 7 round mock.

Our first round pick could go anywhere but I think I've decided on it.

1(10) Anthony Barr - Immediately upgrades the OLB spot and gives us another pass rushing playmaker. Allows us the versatility to give teams 3-4 looks.

2(45) Hopefully not another botched 2nd round WR. If Benjamin falls (as he seems to be doing on some boards now) he'd be the player to take here. Robinson, Adams and Matthews also warrant consideration. Could also go anywhere with this pick since Tate has lessened the WR need.

3(76) Keith McGill CB - Not even sure why but this is the player I'm focused on this offseason. Big big corner with decent speed for a man his size. Could also end up at S in the NFL. (Travis Swanson is another option here)

4(111) If we don't go with Swanson in the third, we'll take one of the remaining Center prospects here, either Stork or Larsen. Sit for a year then take over for Dom in 2015.

4(133) Terrance Brooks FS - Again another player who will benefit from not having to start right away.

4(136) I'm leaning DE with this pick if I can find one that fits our scheme. This could also be where we land our backup QB. There are several 6-5 or 6-6 DEs that should be available around here, if Caldwell wants to stick with the bigger guys. Ill go with Will Clarke from WV.

6(189) Jimmy Garoppolo QB - some are touting him as the next Tony Romo. If that's true we can develop him for a year or two and then trade him off to some other unfortunate team. He could go as high as the 4th round but for now is slated for 5th or 6th. (some have him as high as the 2nd so maybe my sources are way too low on him- could easily take Shaw or Fales to backup)

7(227) No good kickers this year but we need one. I'll plug in Anthony Fera.

So with this draft we fill 8 of our roster holes. Only 1 guy will start immediately (Barr) and 3 of our top 5 picks should contribute right away.

Post Re: Various 2012 NFL Mock drafts.
On just about every draft prediction thread I have seen Watkins will not make it past Cleveland. In a few he gets taken earlier, but if he is still there at #4, the "experts" say they will scoop him up. Now this has me scratching my head. They already have 1 elite style WR, and are willing to draft another one...even though they have NO ONE to throw the ball to either guy! This makes NO SENSE to me whatsoever. Am i the only one baffled by this? Or, can one of you who this makes sense to, please explain it to me. IMO it looks like old Oakland stupidity to me.

On just about every draft prediction thread I have seen Watkins will not make it past Cleveland. In a few he gets taken earlier, but if he is still there at #4, the "experts" say they will scoop him up. Now this has me scratching my head.

Gordon could be suspended for a year at any point because of a stupid mistake and the team seems to really like Hoyer as a potential starter. It's not a bad idea to pair Watkins with Gordon for now and it should allow them to also move on from Gordon later if they feel he is still a liability after another year. IMO there is nothing really special about this years QB class and just like Houston it may be a better idea to just take an elite player prospect and get your QB in the 2nd or 3rd.

Not to mention they can still get a QB with their second 1st round pick.
