2013 NFL Mock Draft: Draft Order Beginning To Take Form

 21. Cincinnati Bengals – Sheldon Richardson, Defensive Tackle, Missouri

Richardson is a versatile defensive tackle who would team up with Geno Atkins to form a terrifying duo for opposing defenses.

22. Minnesota Vikings – Kenny Vaccaro, Safety, Texas

The Vikings play in a division with Aaron Rodgers, Matt Stafford and Jay Cutler. Needless to say, they need all the help they can get in the secondary. Adding a defensive back like Vaccaro would help the Vikings against the pass and can you imagine a Vaccaro – Harrison Smith duo for years to come?

23. Indianapolis Colts – Dion Jordan, Outside Linebacker, Oregon

Adding Jordan would be an absolute steal. Indianapolis is still transitioning to a 3-4 defense and they need more pass rushers. It is very possible that Jordan could shoot up into the top 15 by the time the draft rolls around, so you can understand why the Colts would take him at this slot.

24. Seattle Seahawks – Keenan Allen, Wide Receiver, California

The Seahawks need a number one receiving option and Keenan Allen is the best WR prospect in this class. Does an explanation get any easier than that?

25. St. Louis Rams (From Redskins) – Dallas Thomas, Offensive Tackle, Tennessee

The Rams need to continue adding talent to the offensive line. Thomas is a versatile player that can play guard or right tackle. His versatility will make him a hot commodity near the end of round one.

26. Baltimore Ravens – Arthur Brown, Linebacker, Kansas State

Baltimore needs to acknowledge that Ray Lewis is not getting any younger and it’s about the end of the road for their defensive leader. They will need to replace him soon and now may be the best time with a prospect like Arthur Brown falling into their laps. Brown has the speed to stick with tight ends and he is a tough player with a nose for the football. This kid just makes plays.

27. Green Bay Packers– Giovani Bernard, Running Back, North Carolina

It’s time for the Packers to address their problems in the running game and they can do that by adding the top running back prospect in this year’s class.

28. Houston Texans - Alec Ogletree, Linebacker, Georgia

In a 3-4 defense, you can never have enough linebackers. Texans fans should love the idea of Ogletree teaming up on the inside with Brian Cushing.

27. San Francisco 49ers – Eric Reid, Safety, LSU

It seems very unlikely that Dashon Goldson will return to the 49ers next season, so they will need to add another free safety. Reid is the cream of the crop.

29. New England Patriots – Jordan Poyer, Cornerback, Oregon State

Every year the Patriots appear to load up on cornerbacks and Poyer is the top available corner available. Poyer is a corner with a bigger body that can excl in man-to-man coverage.

31. Atlanta Falcons – Cornellius Carradine, Defensive End, Florida State

The Falcons need help at defensive end. They re-signed Ray Edwards before his disappointing season caused the team to part ways earlier than they could imagine. Atlanta needs to address their lack of depth at defensive end and they can do that by adding the top available pass rusher.

32. Denver Broncos – Jesse Williams, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

Williams has a non-stop motor and would create a distraction in the middle of the Broncos defensive line that would take some attention off of Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil. If you can create an interior presence while freeing up your top pass rushers, it is an opportunity you need to jump on.

    I hope the Bucs don’t reach for a guy like Banks just because we need a corner. We also need a safety, a pass rusher, and as always, the best player available can be helpful. Honestly would rather see Te’o, if it plays out like you said.

    Who is the hack writing this mock draft? I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he’s blind and never watched football before. Geno Smith is NOT the “number one guy in the class”. It’s fricken December, it’s way to early to tell. Aaron Murray, Landry Jones, Tyler Wilson, that Bray kid out of Tennessee are ALL better options than Smith. Do us all a favor and stick to writing about high school wrestling or something that suits morons.

    Mingo may be a natural pass rusher but, he’s to small to play DE in a 4-3 system. Moore, Milliner, and Teo would all be better options at 6.
