2013 NFL Mock Draft by CJ Milner updated 03/04/2013
Follow CJ on Twitter @cmilner2 and let him know what you think about his draft.
1. KC – Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
Depending on what the Chiefs do with Branden Albert this pick should be one of two players, Luke Joeckel or Sharrif Floyd. Kansas City could prefer Eric Fisher over Joeckel so he could also be the pick.
2. JAX – Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Jacksonville recently said they were comfortable with their current QB’s but that may just be a smoke screen to stop teams from trading ahead of them. If they do take a QB it should be Geno Smith, who is the only QB worth the rick in the top five.
3. OAK – Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
Sharrif Floyd almost makes too much sense for Oakland if he’s available when they pick this April. Richard Seymour and Desmond Bryant are free agents and even if they are re-signed, Floyd would be a big upgrade over both.
4. PHI - Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
The Eagles could use a pass rushing linebacker to challenge Bandon Graham opposite of Trent Cole and there are two or three worthy of top ten consideration. Chip Kelly could decide to take his former player Dion Jordan to fill that role.
5. DET - Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
Ziggy Ansah is a "raw" prospect with just a couple years of experience playing football but presents great upside. Detroit just released Kyle Vanden Bosch and Cliff Avril is a free agent so DE is even a bigger need. Dee Milliner could also be the pick.
6. CLE - Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
The Browns already have one of the top, young cornerbacks in the NFL in Joe Haden but don't have anything accross from him. Dee Milliner would be a great pick sixth overall. Barkevious Mingo or a QB could also be an option for Cleveland.
7. ARI - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
I wouldn't be surprised if Eric Fisher was taken ahead of Luke Joeckel so he would be a great pick for Arizona at seven. Arizona desperately needs to improve their offensive line play and then they can worry about drafting a QB.
8. BUF - Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
Buffalo just franchised Jairus Byrd so safety is probably out of the question for them so they should look to the offensive side of the ball. Cordarrelle Patterson would be a nice playmaker for a young QB should Buffalo draft one in the 2nd round..
