Team   Player Comments:
Chiefs 1. OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M A book-end tackle able to start in the NFL from day one. They are trying to trade OT Brandon Albert.
Left tackle Brandon Albert only signed a one year deal and he's coming off an injury plagued season with a bad back. The acquisition of QB Alex Smith from the 49ers gives them some flexibility, but make no mistake, he is not the long term answer at QB. Look for them to get a young signal caller in the middle rounds. QB Case Daniel was an excellent pick up, but Ricky Stanzi might not make it out of training camp. Receiver, inside linebacker, free safety and right tackle are also a huge needs, but they lost their second round pick in the trade for Smith.
Jags 2. LB Ezekiel Ansah, BYU The Jags desperately need a top flight pass rushing linebacker.
Ansah has top notch athletic ability and might even be able to play outside linebacker. Has elite size (6' 6" 276 lbs) and explosiveness. I don't think they'll go QB here, Blaine Gabbert did improve from his rookie season going from a 50.8 to a 58.3 completion percentage.
Raiders 3. DT Shariff Floyd, Florida(JR) The Raiders have purged a lot of their under performing players, so they can draft the best player available.
A man among boys in college. The quickest most powerful defensive tackle in the draft. At 6' 3" 298 pounds he reminds me of former Raider Russell Maryland. He was an All-SEC selection and ran a decent 4.92 forty at the combine.
Eagles 4. OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan Great feet and impossible to get around with his size: 6' 7" 305 lbs.
I can't see them drafting QB Geno Smith, they resigned Michael Vick and went out and got QB Dennis Dixon. Remember Dixon's senior year (2007) under Kelly. Before he injured his ACL he was a candidate for the Heisman Trophy, and helped Oregon earn the No. 2 ranking. Plus don't forget about promising QB Nick Foles. Fisher is of the best tackles in this 2013 NFL Draft class. Really came on strong during the Senior Bowl. The Eagles are desperate for help all along the offensive line.
Lions 5. CB Dee Milliner, Alabama (JR) The Lions could use help in the secondary. Chris Houston is about all they have at cornerback.
Another talented Alabama product. Shows great instincts with the ball in the air. Had a great post season to solidify his #1 ranking at corner. Ran a blistering 4.37 forty yard dash.
Browns 6. OG Chance Warmack, Alabama One of, if not the best guards I have ever seen come out of college.
I think they will give QB Brandon Weeden another year ot two. Warmack is a massive road grader (6' 3" 320 lbs) with great feet and balance. The Browns need to run the ball better and Warmack should remedy that situation.
Cardinals 7. DE Dion Jordan, Oregon Jordan is to good to pass up here. A rising star, raw but loads of potential.
A converted tight end, weighed in at 6' 6" 248 pounds, but can easily put on 15 pounds of muscle and be productive. Had a great season last year recording 44 tackles, 10.5 TFLs and 5 sacks.
Bills 8. QB Geno Smith, West Virginia (JR) A good athlete and a nice powerful arm with a sweet touch. His consistency must improve however.
Most years Smith would probably be a second round NFL Draft pick, but the Bills are desperate for a QB after realizing Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn't the answer and releasing him. Kind of a boom or bust prospect. Not a blazer like RG3 but he ran a very nice 4.59 forty at the combine.
Jets 9. DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU (JR) Mingo is a pass rushing terror, at 6' 4" 242 lbs, he has prototype size, speed and pass rushing ability.
Mingo gives the Jets a solid front front seven to go along with Quinton Coples and Muhammad Wilkerson. Losing Revis means they'll need a corner, but there isn't one rated this high.
Titans 10. OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina The Titans get an athletic monster for the interior of their offensive line.
Two guards in the top ten? Believe it, these two guys are just that good. With the signing of LG Andy Levitre they just need a right guard and Cooper can start at right guard from day one. He has a good initial punch, but his strength is how well he gets out on linebackers at the next level.
Chargers 11. OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma Johnson ( 6' 6" 303 lbs.) is your prototypical OKlahoma offensive lineman, big, tough and smart.
Academic All-American. Played quarterback in high school and has played both on the left and right side of the offensive line. Very good athlete, also played tight end at Oklahoma as a sophomore. Versatility and athleticism might boost him into the top ten.
Dolphins 12. OT D. J. Fluker, Alabama (JR) Fluker is a little bit of a reach here, but they lost OT Jake Long in free agency.
Fluker is a beast (6' 4" 340 lbs) no doubt, but look for them to draft WR Tavon Austin if they can pull off the deal for Chief OT Brandon Albert.
Jets 13. S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas From Tampa: Good size (6' 0" 217 lbs). A big-time free safety, reminds me of Troy Polamalu.
Vaccaro would bring a physical presence to the Jets secondary that they haven't had in a while. They Jets will look hard at CB Desmond Trufant here, but safety might be a bigger need as they lost Laron landry in free agenct to the Colts.
Panthers 14. DT Star Lotulelei, Utah Was considered a top five pick for most of the year. A steal here at 14.
Probably a top 5 talent. An athletic 6' 4" 320 pound slab of beef. A heart condition at the combine has caused some teams to get nervous, but all checks since then have been fine and he had a great workout at his pro day.
Saints 15. LB Jarvis Jones, Georgia (JR) Jones is one of the elite players in the 2013 NFL Draft. His on field production was unparalleled.
Incredibly consistent the last two years: Last year he led the NCAA in tackles for losses (TFL) with 24.5, 14.5 sacks and 7 forced fumbles. In 2011 he recorded 70 tackles and 19.5 tackles for loss (TFL). Great size also at 6' 3" 241 lbs.
Rams 16. WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia The Rams need a blazer on the outside and Austin will put fear in defensive coordinators.
A speed demon and able to catch the football from anywhere on the field and explode into the end zone. Ran a blistering 4.34 at the combine. Losing Danny Amendola makes this a need pick.
Steelers 17. TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame Has top ten talent and is a complete steal here. He has pro-bowl written all over him.
I love this pick, Eifert is a guy that you can throw it to even when he is not open. Great size (6' 6" 251 lbs) and can block. Notre Dame has been a tight end factory with John Carlson, Anthony Fasano and Kyle Rudolf already in the NFL. Guess what? Eifert can be better than any of them.
