Jason’s 1 Round Mock, with Projected Revis deal, April 21st, 2013

Below is a 1 Round Mock, with the assumed trade of Darrelle Revis heading from the Jets to the Buccaneers for the 13th pick, and extra picks.

1 Kansas City Chiefs – OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

Analysis: The Chiefs have a new QB in Alex Smith, and they need to find the tackle that will be able to protect their new QB, so they go with the top OT prospect in Joeckel.

2 Jacksonville Jaguars – OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon

Analysis: The Jags could go many ways, they coud decide on Florda’s Sharrif Floyd, or opt to trade down and get Geno Smith, but I think they will take the pass rusher out of Oregon in Dion Jordan to give them an instant spark on defense.

3 Oakland Raiders – DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida

Analysis: The Raiders are ecstatic that their number 1 choice is available, and make it official, they take the Florida DT, who is my top rated defensive player in the draft. He will bring a pass rush and run stuff ability.

4 Philadelphia Eagles – OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

Analysis: The Eagles need a new LT badly. Jason Peters was injured in 2012, and Demetress Bell was a bust signing, so they take the 2d best OT in the draft to try and protect Mike Vick or whoever plays QB for them.

5 Detroit Lions – OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma

Analysis: The Lions lost Jeff Backus this offseason, and need to replace him, and they do so with Lane Johnson, my 3rd best OT, who will fill in at LT nicely.

6 Cleveland Browns – CB Dee Milliner, Alabama

Analysis: The Browns need to not mess this up by trading back, they need to stand put, and take the best CB in Dee Milliner out of Alabama to team with Joe Haden.

7 Arizona Cardinals – OG Chance Warmack, Alabama

Analysis: The Cards lose out on all 3 OT prospects, so they turn to the OG position, and get my top guy to replace the bust of a signing in Adam Snyder.

8 Buffalo Bills – QB Geno Smith, West Virginia

Analysis: The Bills need their future QB, and they get it in Geno Smith, who will bring accuracy, and arm strength.

9 New York Jets – DE Ziggy Ansah, BYU

Analysis: The Jets find themselves fortunate, and land Ansah, my best 4-3 DE in this draft class. A great pass rusher, with ability to learn more as he goes.

10 Tennessee Titans – OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

Analysis: The Titans hope they have their QB in Jake Locker, and need to protect him, and Chris Johnson needs a lead blocker, so they get my 2nd best OG, who will replace the retired Steve Hutchinson.

11 San Diego Chargers – NT Star Lotuelelei, Utah

Analysis: The Chargers need to replace Antonio Garay, and they do so with Lotuelelei, a big body who will stuff the run, and can kick outside and play end if need be.

12 Miami Dolphins – CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida State

Analysis: The Dolphins are ecstatic that Rhodes falls to them, and swoop him up, and get the 2nd best CB in the class.

13 New York Jets (f/Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU

Analysis: The Jets, after dealing Revis, get a pass rusher to along with Ziggy Ansah, this time a 3-4 OLB< and my 2nd best in Mingo.

14 Carolina Panthers – CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State

Analysis: The Panthers replace Chris Gamble, who was cut earlier in the offseason, with Poyer, who is a ball hawk, with 7 INTs in 2012.

15 New Orleans Saints – DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

Analysis: The Saints get a good pass rusher, and a good DL in Richardson to replace Sedrick Ellis once his deal is up.

16 St. Louis Rams – WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia

Analysis: The Rams get the best WR prospect in the draft, as Austin will provide speed, and explosiveness to the offense.

17 Pittsburgh Steelers – OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia

Analysis: The Steelers get the best 4-3 OLB in Jones, who fell due to poor workouts, and are thrilled to get a pure pass rusher, with good coverage abilities.

18 Dallas Cowboys – DT Jesse Williams, Alabama

Analysis: The Cowboys go out and get the next best DE/NT in Williams. He can help on the edge rush, and give Ratliff a breather.

19 New York Giants – TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame

Analysis: The Giants lost Martellius Bennett in free agency, so they get the top TE in the class in Eifert.

20 Chicago Bears – ILB Alec Ogletree, Georgia

Analysis: The Bears replace Urlacher with a good tackling ILB, who does have off the field issues, but should be on is best behavior.

21 Cincinnati Bengals – OT D.J. Fluker, Alabama

Analysis: The Bengals still need a RT as they haven’t re-signed Andre Smith, so they get the best RT in Fluker from Alabama.

22 St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas

Analysis: The Rams are ecstatic that Vaccaro falls to them, and they swoop him up and have a great 1st round, with Austin and now a hard hitting safety.

23 Minnesota Vikings – WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee

Analysis: The Vikings replace Harvin with a Patterson. A big tall WR, with great hands, but still needs some work to be a complete player.

24 Indianapolis Colts – DT Kawann Short, Purdue

Analysis: The Colts go out and get a top DT in Short, who can swing to End, and rush the QB.

25 Minnesota Vikings – ILB Manti Te’o, Notre Dame

Analysis: The Vikings get the 2nd best ILB in the draft in Te’o, who is just a tackling machine.

26 Green Bay Packers – WR Keenan Allen, California

Analysis: The Packers replace Greg Jennings with Allen, a sure pass catcher, with great hands.

27 Houston Texans – WR DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson

Analysis: The Texans need to get a quality WR to compliment Andre Johnson, and Hopkins has raw talent, that can only make him better.

28 Denver Broncos – DT Datone Jones, UCLA

Analysis: The Broncos need to replace Brodrick Bunkley who left via free agency last offseason, and finally do so with Jones, who can swing over the DE and rush the passer.

29 New England Patriots – WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee

Analysis: The Pats need to add a 3rd WR after failing to get Emmanuel Sanders as a RFA.

30 Atlanta Falcons – Zach Ertz, Stanford

Analysis: The Falcons go and get the 2nd best TE to replace Tony Gonzalez in 2014.

31 San Francisco 49ers – S Jonathan Cyprien, Florida International

Analysis: The 49ers get their replacement for Dashon Goldson in Cyprien.

32 Baltimore Ravens – ILB Kevin Minter, LSU

Analysis: The Ravens get their replacement for Ray Lewis in Minter.

February 5th, 2013: Jason’s Post Senior Bowl 2 Round Mock Take 2:

1st Round:

1. Kansas City Chiefs – OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

Analysis: The Chiefs need to find themselves a franchise QB, but first they get the LT to protect that franchise QB.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars – DE Bjoern Werner, Florida State

Analysis: The Jaguars are in need of pass rush help, and Werner seems to be one of the top 3 in this years class.

3. Oakland Raiders – DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M

Analysis: The Raiders have several needs, and with more picks then usual, they go for the guy with most potential, and a good pass rusher too.

4. Philadelphia Eagles – NT Star Lotulelei, Utah

Analysis: The Eagles are likely headed in the 3-4 direction, so they need a big NT to go along side last years 1st round pick, Fletcher Cox.

5. Detroit Lions – OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia

Analysis: Not the biggest need, but it is an upgrade. and basically the best player on the board, so it makes sense.

6. Cleveland Browns – DE Sam Montgomery, LSU

Analysis: The Browns get a premier pass rusher to go opposite Jabaal Sheard.

7. Arizona Cardinals – OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

Analysis: The Cardinals need several spots filled, but first they need to fill the void at LT, since Levi Brown can’t stay healthy.

8. Buffalo Bills – QB Genon Smith, West Virginia

Analysis: The Bills need to go in a new direction at QB, and Smith is the best in the draft.

9. New York Jets – OLB Barkevous Mingo, LSU

Analysis: The Jets will likely part ways with Calvin Pace, and need to get younger at OLB, so a pass rusher like Mingo makes sense here.

10. Tennessee Titans – OG Chance Warmack, Alabama

Analysis: The Titans need to upgrade at Guard, and Warmack is the best one in the class.

11. San Diego Chargers – NT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State

Analysis: The Chargers are ready for a new era on the D-Line, to go with Corey Liuget, they get a monster at NT, who will take Antonio Garay’s spot in no time.

12. Miami Dolphins – CB Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State

Analysis: The Dolphins need to get a CB to replace the traded Vontae Davis, and Banks is a playmaker at CB with shut down skills.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State

Analysis: The Bucs need a CB if they do indeed let Eric Wright , who seems as a dissapointment of a signing, go, so they take the 2nd best CB to me in Poyer, who has the tools to be a shut down #1 CB.

14. Carolina Panthers – CB Dee Milliner, Alabama

Analysis: The Panthers need to replace Chris Gamble, he is getting older, and is always hurt, so they take a dynamic CB in Milliner, who some feel is the best CB in the draft, and could go as high as 3rd to Oakland.

15. New Orleans Saints – DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

Analysis: Richardson is a fast riser, and this has been a hot potential pick for the past month, and it makes sense to add a pass rusher to replace Will Smith and Sedrick Ellis, as both won’t be back at their cap numbers.

16. St. Louis Rams – OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma

Analysis: The Rams need to address their Offensive Line, and they get their future LT in Johnson to pair with Rodger Safold.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers – ILB Manti Te’o, Notre Dame

Analysis: The Steelers have an aging LB core, and they need to get a leader, and great tackler, and Te’o is just that.

18. Dallas Cowboys – OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon

Analysis: The Cowboys will almost certainly lose Anthony Spencer, as they are over the 2013 cap, so they draft his replacement in Jordan, who could play some DE if needed.

19. New York Giants – CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida State

Analysis: The Giants need to get younger at CB, and it’s likely that Corey Webster, and Terrell Thomas won’t be back, so they get a top 5 CB in this class in Rhodes.

20. Chicago Bears – OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

Analysis: The Bears need to address their RG position, and Cooper is a major upgrade over Chilo Rachal.

21. Cincinnati Bengals – OT D.J. Fluker, Alabama

Analysis: Andre Smith may or may not be back, so they pick up the potential replacement, or the starter opposite Smith in Fluker.

22. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – S Eric Reid, LSU

Analysis: The Rams need to upgrade at Safety, it’s clear Quinton Mikell isn’t what they hoped for in 2011, so they get the top Safety in the draft.

23. Minnesota Vikings – WR Keenan Allen, California

Analysis: The Vikings need WR help, as only Percy Harvin is the real threat at WR, and since Michael Jenkins likely won’t have his roster bonus paid, so they will need a replacement, and Allen will do fine with the Vikings.

24. Indianapolis Colts – DT Jesse Williams, Alabama

Analysis: The Colts need some consitent play from the middle of the defensive line, and Williams would bring that, he can even shift from NT to DE if need be.

25. Seattle Seahawks – WR Terrance Williams, Baylor

Analysis: The Seahawks need some help at WR, Braylon Edwards didn’t work out, and Sidney Rice hasn’t show he was worth the big contract a few seasons back, so they get a stud at WR.

26. Green Bay Packers – WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee

Analysis: With Greg Jennings placing his Wisconsin home up for sale, it’s clear he isn’t returning, so the Packers need to find a replacement, and Austin will fit in nicely with the Packers.

27. Houston Texans – DE/DT Kawann Short, Purdue

Analysis: The Texans need to get a pass rusher, especially after the loss of Mario Williams a year ago.

28. Denver Broncos – NT John Jenkins, Georgia

Analysis: The Broncos need to get help at DT ever since Brodrick Bunkley left in the offseason to the Saints, and Jenkins is just a big body.

29. Nw England Patriots – S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas

Analysis: The Pats may get Ed Reed, but lets say he stays in Baltimore, then the Patriots look for their futur at Safety to go with Tavon Wilson.

30. Atlanta Falcons – TE Zach Ertz, Stanford

Analysis: Tony Gonzalez is retiring most likely, so the Falcons get his replacement, and he is a good one, good pass catching TE with good blocking skills.

31. San Francisco 49ers – DE/DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida

Analysis: It’s clear JUstin Smith isn’t gonna be around forever, so the 49ers get the eventual replacement in Floyd, who can learn under Smith.

32. Baltimore Ravens – ILB Kevin Minter, LSU

Analysis: It is a fact that Ray Lewis is retiring, so they need to find his replacement, and Minter would fit in nicely for the Ravens.

2nd Round:

33. Jacksonville Jaguars – CB Desmond Trufant, Washington

34. Kansas City Chiefs – QB E.J. Manuel, Florida State

35. Philadelphia Eagles – CB Logan Ryan, Rutgers

36. Detroit Lions – DE Ezeikel Ansah, BYU

37. Cincinnati Bengals (f/Oakland Raiders) – RB Andre Ellington, Clemson

38. Arizona Cardinals – QB Mike Glennon, N.C. State

39. New York Jets – WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee

40. Tennessee Titans – DE Alex Okafor, Texas

41. Buffalo Bills – WR De’Andre Hopkins, Clemson

42. Miami Dolphins – TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame

43. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – NT/DT Sylvester Williams, North Carolina

44. Carolina Panthers – WR Quinton Patton, La Tech

45. San Diego Chargers – ILB Alec Ogletree, Georgia

46. St. Louis Rams – OLB Corey Lemonier, Auburn

47. Dallas Cowboys – DE Margus Hunt, SMU

50. Chicago Bears – C Barrett Jones, Alabama

51. Washington Redskins – CB Robert Alford, SE Louisiana

52. Minnesota Vikings – S Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma

53. Cincinnati Bengals – S Matt Elam, Florida

54. Miami Dolphins (f/Indianapolis Colts) – S Jonathan Cyprien, Florida International

55. Green Bay Packers – RB Montee Ball, Wisconsin

56. Seattle Seahawks – OG Travis Frederick, Wisconsin

57. Houston Texans – OT Dallas Thomas, Tennessee

58. Denver Broncos – C Khaled Holmes, USC

59. New Englans Patriots – OT Menelik Watson, Florida State

60. Atlanta Falcons – RB Giovani Bernard, North Carolina

61. San Francisco 49ers – NT Brandon Williams, Missouru Southern

62. Baltimore Ravens – S Phillip Thomas, Fresno State

January 27th, 2013: Jason’s Post Senior Bowl 1 Round Mock:

1. Kansas City Chiefs – OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

Analysis: The Chiefs do need a franchise QB, but none are worthy of this pick, so they bet who I believe is the best player in the draft in Joeckel to protect whoever is the new QB.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars – OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia

Analysis: The Jags need to bolster their pass rushing, and Jones will provide just that, and some good coverage skills.

3. Oakland Raiders – DE Sam Montgomery, LSU

Analysis: The Raiders need the bolster their Defensive Line, and Montgomery is my top rated DE who fits their scheme.

4. Philadelphia Eagles – NT Star Lotulelei, Utah

Analysis: The Eagles have a brand new coach fresh out of college in Chip Kelly, who will install a 3-4 defense, and they decide to get their man in the middle, and the former Utah Ute will be a nice addition to go with last years 1st round pick Fletcher Cox.

5. Detroit Lions – DE/OLB Bjoern Werner, Florida State

Analysis: The Lions need some help on the Defensive Line, whether it be to replace Cliff Avril or the potential release of Kyle Vanden Bosch, so they go with a top notch pass rusher.

6. Cleveland Browns – DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M

Analysis: The Browns add a dynamic pass rusher to go opposite Jabaal Sheard, and Moore has the ability to move from End to OLB for any team drafting him.

7. Arizona Cardinals – OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

Analysis: The Cardinals do need a franchise QB, but not here, so they get the 2nd best OT in the class in Fisher, who had a great senior bowl week, that really made him a ton of money.

8. Buffalo Bills – QB Geno Smith, West Virginia

Analysis: Not my top QB, but he has gained the most buzz since the 2012 season began and ended, so the Bills hope they found themselves their franchise QB.

9. New York Jets – OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU

Analysis: The Jets need to get a better pass rush, and with likely release of Calvin Pace, it makes sense to get Mingo here.

10. Tennessee Titans – OG Chance Warmack, Alabama

Analysis: The Titans need youth at Guard, and Warmack is a big body, and just a beast. They get their new LG.

11. San Diego Chargers – NT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State

Analysis: The Chargers need to get younger on the D-Line, and Hankins will move right into the rotation.

12. Miami Dolphins – WR Keenan Allen, California

Analysis: The Dolphins biggest need is at WR, and they get the best one in the draft in Allen. Good size, and good speed. Dynamic threat.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State

Analysis: With the possibility of the release of Eric Wright, the Buccnaeers go out and get my top Corner in Banks.

14. Carolina Panthers – CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State

Analysis: The Panthers need youth at CB, and Poyer is a INT machine, and a good cover corner.

15. New Orleans Saints – CB Dee Milliner, Alabama

Analysis: The Saints need a DE, but CB is also a need with Jabari Greer a free agent to be. And Milliner is the top underclassmen at CB.

16. St. Louis Rams – OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma

Analysis: The Rams get their LT for now and the future in Johnson, who is a big body, good blocker, and all around nasty player.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers – ILB Manti Te’o, Notre Dame

Analysis: The Steelers need to get younger in the Linebacker core, and Te’o is what they need, a all around great tackler, and great leader.

18. Dallas Cowboys – OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon

Analysis: The Cowboys could need a OLB if they let Anthony Spencer go in Free Agency.

19. New York Giants – CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida State

Analysis: Corey Webster is a cap cut possibility, and they need to be healthy, as Terrell Thomas has torn his ACL for 2 straight seasons, so he may be gone, so they get on of the top 5 CBs in the draft on Rhodes.

20. Chicago Bears – OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

Analysis: The Bears need to solve their RG issue, and Cooper fits in with a nice frame, and good blocker.

21. Cincinnati Bengals – DT/DE Kawann Short, Purdue

Analysis: The Bengals could use some more depth along the defensive line, and Short could play DE or DT in their defense.

22. St. Louis Rams (f/Washington Redskins) – S Eric Reid, LSU

Analysis: The Rams need to upgrade at Safety, and Reid would be the ideal fit.

23. Minnesota Vikings – WR Terrance Williams, Baylor

Analysis: The Vikings need more weapons if Christian Ponder is to be successful, and Williams would help out tremendously.

24. Indianapolis Colts – DT Jesse Williams, Alabama

Analysis: The Colts could use a DE here also, but a DT in the middle is a priority also.

25. Seattle Seahawks – WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee

Analysis: The Seahawks need to get more weapons for Russell Wilson, and Hunter has good speed and size.

26. Green Bay Packers – WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia

Analysis: The Packers are potentially losing both Donald Driver and Greg Jennings, so they replace them with Austin, a speedy WR, with good size.

27. Houston Texans – DT/DE Sheldon Richardson, Missouri

Analysis: The Texans look to replace the loss of Mario Williams from a year ago, and get a good one in Missouri’s Richardson. Good pass rusher.

28. Denver Broncos – DT John Jenkins, Georgia

Analysis: The Broncos need to replace the loss of Brodrick Bunkley from a year ago to the Saints, and Jenkins is just a big body that will help the process.

29. New Englans Patriots – S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas

Analysis: The Pats need Safety help, and should get here with Vaccaro.

30. Atlanta Falcons – DE Alek Okafor, Texas

Analysis: The Falcons need to upgrade at DE, and get younger, as John Abraham isn’t getting any younger, and they cut Ray Edwards earlier in the season.

31. Baltimore Ravens – ILB Kevin Minter, LSU

Analysis: The Ravens need a ILB with the retirement of Ray Lewis, and Minter is the 2nd best one in the draft.

32. San Francisco 49ers – DT/DE Sharrif Floyd, Florida

Analysis: The 49ers need some youth and depth on the D-Line, and Floyd can be that, and would learn under one of the greats, Justin Smith.
