2013 NFL Mock Draft #1: Way Too Early To Mean Anything

Now that I've ranked everyone in top 5s by position heading into next year, time to throw them out and arbitrarily pick the first 32 people picked (yay).  This draft board will look very, very different heading into the real draft in April.  Things like the Senior Bowl and the Combine need to happen before any picks are made with any kind of certainty.  Also, the draft order will change three more times (at least) before the draft.  So enjoy this fun, but useless bit of research.  Try not to be too devastated over who I think your team will pick.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith (QB) West Virginia: Need a QB, only worthwhile QB in class
  2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Bjoern Werner (DE) Florida St: Best overall DE, even if Babin returns
  3. Oakland Raiders: Damontre Moore (DE) Texas A&M: Versatile DE, like Richard Seymour
  4. Arizona Cardinals: Matt Barkley (QB) Southern Cal: Because Leinart worked so well....
  5. Carolina Panthers: Star Lotulelei (DT) Utah: Haven't had real DT since Kris Jenkins
  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Luke Joeckel (OT) Texas A&M: Protect Foles > Protect Vick
  7. Detroit Lions: Dee Milliner (CB) Alabama: They simply can't cover a statue
  8. Tennessee Titans: Jarvis Jones (OLB) Georgia: Best player available on the board
  9. San Diego Chargers: Chance Warmack (OG) Alabama: Beast Mode: O-Line style
  10. Cleveland Browns: Taylor Lewan (OT) Michigan: Protect last year's first rounders
  11. Buffalo Bills: Manti Te'o (ILB) Notre Dame: Finally have a captain for the defense
  12. Miami Dolphins: Justin Hunter (WR) Tennessee: Brian Hartline is not a #1 WR...
  13. New Orleans Saints: Barkevious Mingo (DE) LSU: Need.More.Pass Rush.
  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sam Montgomery (DE) LSU: Need a corner, but Milliner is gone.
  15. New York Jets: Dion Jordan (DE) Oregon: see New Orleans Saints
  16. St. Louis Rams: Jake Matthews (OT) Texas A&M: Give Bradford a chance back there...
  17. Cincinnati Bengals: Eric Fisher (OT) Central Michigan: Needs not available, so protect QB
  18. Minnesota Vikings: Johnathan Hankins (DT) Ohio State: Kevin Williams is getting old...
  19. Dallas Cowboys: John Jenkins (DT) Georgia: D needs interior toughness.
  20. St. Louis Rams (via WSH): Keenan Allen (WR) Cal: Give Bradford another weapon
  21. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ezekiel Ansah (DE) BYU: Freak athlete: think JPP-type pass rusher
  22. Chicago Bears: Sheldon Richardson (DT) Mizzou: Desperately need OT, none available
  23. Seattle Seahawks: Cordarrelle Patterson (WR) Tennessee: Give Wilson more weapons
  24. New York Giants: Xavier Rhodes (CB) Florida St: Always have multiple corners injured...
  25. Indianapolis Colts: Jesse Williams (DT) Alabama: Need NT in new 3-4 defense
  26. Baltimore Ravens: Tavon Austin (WR) West Virginia: No better way to get explosiveness
  27. Green Bay Packers: Jonathan Cooper (CB) Miss. St: Woodson can't live forever
  28. San Francisco 49ers: Shariff Floyd (DT) Florida: Versatility on the DL always a plus
  29. Denver Broncos: Sylvester Williams (DT) North Carolina: Best Athlete available, by far
  30. New England Patriots: Barrett Jones (OG) Alabama: Versatile offensive lineman
  31. Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Eifert (TE) Notre Dame: Best Tony Gonzalez Replacement project 
  32. Houston Texans: Zach Ertz (TE) Stanford: Another receiving option to distract D from Andre
