2013 NFL Draft Big Board | Joeckel #1?

The 2013 NFL Draft Big Big Board | Top 32 players eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft

By Tyler Lurkins

  1. Luke Joeckel, T, Texas A and M-Easily the most effective player in the draft.  NFL ready skills, but like Kalil last year, will need more strength.
  2. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah-Monster in the middle who can plug a hole and rush the passer.  Will need to have a strong combine to make up for playing poor competition.
  3. Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida St.-Absolute motor player.  Werner never quits on a play and may be the most balanced defender in the draft.  Still lacks the experience of most players.
  4. Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama-Tough, hard nosed corner, with great coverage skills.  Will need to show off more speed to show the ability to make up for mistakes.
  5. Chance Warmack, G, Alabama-Has the NFL strength, size, and blocking ability.  Effective blocker but needs to show he can bury tacklers who are quick off the snap.
  6. Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A and M-Proving to be the most prolific pass rushers in college football.  Will have tangibles to be a top pick, but still needs weight and strength for the NFL.
  7. Jarvis Jones, LB, Georgia-The best LB in the draft.  Extremely dangerous pass rusher but needs better coverage skills and may not be the best in playing the run.  Proven injury concerns.
  8. Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame-Complete package player with enormous character.  Excels in coverage and chasing down plays, but may have issues with stopping a power back with a lead blocker.
  9. Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri-A fierce DT with passion for the game.  Probably the fastest D lineman off the snap.  Lacks intelligence as shown by his route to get to the D1 level, may have character issues.
  10. Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU-Is the most balanced DE with great football awareness.  Lacks elite speed on the edge.
  11. Geno Smith, QB, W. Virginia-Dynamic QB with ability to toss the deep ball and scramble.  Will need to have throwing motion and footwork tweaked.  Also, needs practice under center.
  12. Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama-Immense talent with ability to play several schemes.  Has the patience and effort to be a nose tackle, but the speed and burst to be an under tackle or 5 technique end.  Although very versatile, lacks the one thing that makes him the greatest at any listed position.
  13. Jake Matthews, T, Texas A and M-Has all the intangibles to play in the NFL.  Very cerebral player, tutored by the best.  Needs work at LT as speed rushers may give him fits.
  14. Taylor Lewan, T, Michigan-Has NFL footwork and is very effective of keeping the pass rusher in front of him.  Has absolutely no power for the bull rush, and uses his arms too much to keep the rusher back.
  15. Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee-Has the best arm in the draft.  Throwing motion is very effective with one of the quickest releases.  Though not a trouble maker, an arrogant player, who will throw into tough coverage to make a highlight reel.  May not be the best listener.
  16. John Jenkins, DT, Georgia-Best run stuffer in the draft by far.  Has surprising burst that makes him hard to contain.  Very dangerous player, but has issues with double teams.
  17. C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama-Probably the most complete and versatile LB in the draft.  Great at coverage, flows well to the ball, and can plug the middle.  May lack the elite speed to be a phenomenal pass rusher, and may need more power to be a thumper in the middle.
  18. Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio St.-Most unique DT with an amazing skill set for his size.  Can rush on the edge or stand up blockers.  Needs better conditioning and shows a ton of nonchalant play on film.
  19. Eric Reid, FS, LSU-An excellent playmaker who literally flies to the ball.  Lays the wood to ball carriers better than any defensive back in the draft.  Plays out of position frequently, and in a rush to make the big play, often misses.  Injury risk.
  20. Keenan Allen, WR, Cal-Great WR with a great blend of ability, size, and speed.  Will get open and fight the ball better than any other in the draft.  May need to prove health and show better separation.
  21. Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon-Rare combination of size and speed.  Has the wingspan to be very dangerous in all aspects of the game.  Definitely not capable of shedding blocks in the NFL, lacks the strength for the NFL at the moment.
  22. Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame-As good as any TE to enter the draft in the last few years.  Great blocking skills for a receiver who catches so well.  Has body and discipline to work the seam and get open for the QB.  Lacks that true speed that would make him elite.
  23. Jonathan Cooper, G, N. Carolina-Superb pass blocker.  Shows speed to get pull and get to the next level.  Needs more strength to sustain blocks in the run game.
  24. Alex Okafor, DE, Texas-A very complete DE with few flaws.  Very technical pass rusher who can also set the edge.  Lacks elite ability in any aspect of his game.
  25. Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU-Mingo is the best straight line rusher in the draft.  Very hard to block and very explosive.  Has no position in that he lacks the size to be a DE and the coverage ability to play LB.  Needs to add weight and strength to be complete.
  26. Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas-Very great arm when throwing on the run.  Has good size, with great arm strength, and is very mobile.  Makes poor decisions when pocket collapses and has played poorly with less than top flight weapons around him.
  27. Barrett Jones, G/C/T, Alabama-Exceptional footwork and football knowledge.  Easily the smartest football player in this draft.  Can be a leader and is very sound fundamentally with the ability to play multiple positions.  Can and has been thrown around by bigger defensive lineman and will need chip blocks to sustain blocks.
  28. Tavon Austin, WR, W. Virginia-Top flight speed who is hard to run with.  One of the fastest players in the draft with great hands.  Has no route running skills and a very small frame.  Will only hit the first round with a fast 40 in the combine.
  29. Ezekial Ansah, DE, BYU-Massive frame for a player with his speed and reaction time.  Quick off the edge with the strength to anchor the end of the line.  Is very raw and lacks experience to be a top player.
  30. Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida St.-Very physical corner with size to matchup against most receivers.  Tackles flawlessly with the burst to close on the ball and make up for his mistakes.  Hips are a little stiff and he lacks the blanket coverage skills of a top 10 pick at the CB position.
  31. Eric Fisher, T, C. Michigan-Shows great fundamentals on film.  Footwork is great, he slides well, and is a finesse blocker.  Has played very limited competition, and will surely need to be a tougher run blocker.
  32. Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi St.-Great blanket corner.  Can play physical, and will not shy away from a tackle.  Lacks the speed to cover fast receivers, and lacks the weight to body up with the big receviers.
