Jason’s 2013 NFL Mock Draft | 2 Rounds
What’s up everyone? This is Jason with my 2 Round NFL Mock Draft. Enjoy!!!
1.Kansas City (2-14) — Luke Joeckel, OT Texas A&M
The Chiefs would be wise to trade down here and get one of the better defensive line prospects in this draft, but they have very little leverage here because the teams at the top of the draft have a lot of needs still to fill and can’t afford to lose additional picks. Joeckel is the safest pick in this draft and will be a solid OT in the NFL for years to come. I still expect them to deal Brandon Albert, but after the draft, so Joeckel will be relied upon heavily in his rookie season to protect Alex Smith.
2. Jacksonville (2-14) — Dion Jordan, DE/LB Oregon
The Jaguars would be better of sitting back until next year to take a QB and take a chance to improve one of the worst pass rushes in the NFL. Dion Jordan has a lot of speed and will help improve the defense from Day 1. Sharrif Floyd or Star Lotuleli would be the safest pick here, but they still have Tyson Alualu who they shouldn’t give up on yet, after wasting a high pick and the Jags are always know to make surprises. They’ll be drafting in the Top 5 again next year and will get their chance to find a replacement for Gabbert.
3. Oakland (4-12) — Sharrif Floyd, DT Florida
It’s always been the team’s plan to draft speed and Floyd has some freakish speed for a guy his side. Just like the Jags, Oakland’s pass rush and run defense are awful and they need to get better on the defensive line. They already addressed the QB situation with Matt Flynn and hopefully can restock on a few later round picks in the Carson Palmer deal to Arizona, so this pick will either be a DT or DE and Floyd is too interesting to pass up. I like the Raiders chance to finish last next season and get Clowney out of South Carolina and totally rebuild that defense.
4. Philadelphia (4-12) — Geno Smith, QB West Virginia
The Eagles will have a much better season than they did last year and Michael Vick’s time in Philly is coming to an end. They won’t be drafting high enough next year to get a quality QB that will fit Chip Kelly’s system. Geno Smith may not be RG III, but he is better than Vick and will be able to be a quality starter in the NFL for a few seasons. If Jason Peters can stay healthy, they can address their lack of depth at defensive tackle in the later rounds.
5. Detroit (4-12) — Eric Fisher, OT Central Michigan
The Lions are really thin at the offensive line with the retirement of Jeff Backus and at the defensive end position with Avril and Vanden Bosch no longer on the team. They need to look at taking the best available player at this position and luckily this draft is deep at both positions of need. Eric Fisher isn’t too far behind Joeckel in ability and will form a nice OT duo with Riley Reiff.
