NFL Mock Draft 2013: Updated Post-Divisional Round Mock Draft

Each week Fansided.com will have a new mock draft to preview and showcase this upcoming April’s draft. For more in depth analysis of each pick, be sure to visit the Fansided site of your favorite team and check back each Monday for a new and updated Mock Draft.

NOTE: This is as accurate a draft order as possible. Currently, the top 28 spots are set. The remaining picks will be determined as team’s are eliminated from the playoffs. 

1. Kansas City Chiefs – Geno Smith, Quarterback, West Virginia

Andy Reid will want to bring in a signal-caller to start his run with the Kansas City Chiefs. While popular belief is that there is no quarterback worthy of the No. 1 pick, you have to be excited with the skill set of Smith after seeing the success of Cam Newton and Colin Kaepernick in the pros. Even better for the Chiefs is that Smith is a perfect fit for Andy Reid’s offense. Kansas City could go with Luke Joeckel first-overall and take a quarterback in the second round, but offensive line is not an immediate need and you need to fill your biggest needs if you are picking early.

 2Jacksonville Jaguars – Bjoern Werner, Florida State

Werner is a stud pass rusher and was one of the most consistent players getting after the quarterback at the collegiate level last season. Werner fills a need at defensive end, but this pick could all change once a new coaching staff is in place.

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

While Werner was one of the most consistent pass rushers in college football, Moore was one of the most dominant. He will instantly come in to the NFL and use his freak athleticism to make an impact. Moore is a game changer at end and he will generate a lot of attention from the offensive blocking scheme which will free up his teammates to make plays.

4. Philadelphia Eagles – Luke Joeckel, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M

This pick is an absolute no-brainer. Joeckel is the best offensive tackle prospect in this year’s class — in fact, best in the past few years — and the Eagles desperately need help at the position.

5. Detroit Lions – Dee Milliner, Cornerback, Alabama

Milliner is the top cornerback in this year’s class and a top ten pick. When you need help in the secondary as badly as the Lions, you have to take Milliner in this spot. During the national championship game, Milliner looked like the cream of the crop among the NFL prospects.

6.  Cleveland Browns – Jarvis Jones, Linebacker, Georgia

D’Qwell Jackson is one of the best linebackers in the NFL, but he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves because he is stuck in Cleveland with very little help around him. That can all change if the Browns wise up and pull the trigger on a top linebacker prospect in the first-round. Jones would bring a pass rushing ability to the Browns defense that they have lacked.

7. Arizona Cardinals – Tyler Wilson, Quarterback, Arkansas

Every time I do a mock for the Cardinals I can only focus on one glaring need — quarterback. The Arizona depth chart is littered with signal-callers who are more suited for a back up role.

8.  Buffalo Bills – Ryan Nassib, Quarterback, Syracuse

Hear me out here… the Bills have made no secret about the fact that they had interest in Nassib before bringing in his college head coach, Doug Marrone, to run the team. If Marrone believes Nassib has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback, the Bills need to select him here. Nassib is generating a lot of buzz and could be gone early in the second round, so if the Bills truly want to lock up the Syracuse prospect they need to do so early.

9. New York Jets –Barkevious Mingo, Outside Linebacker, LSU

It wouldn’t be shocking to see a quarterback drafted in this position, but the Jets defense needs pass rushers for everything else to click. The scheme depends on pass rushers and there is perhaps no rush linebacker in this year’s class with more upside than Mingo. He has a freak combination of size/speed.

10.  Tennessee Titans –  Star Lotulelei, Defensive Tackle, Utah

This would be a gift for the Titans if Lotulelei fell into their laps. He was at one time considered a candidate for the top overall pick, but with other prospects rapidly rising he has taken a few steps back. Lotulelei will instantly upgrade the rush defense for Tennessee and provide the team with a big body that is able to generate an interior pass rush.

11. San Diego Chargers  – Eric Fisher, Offensive Tackle, Central Michigan

It is obvious that the Chargers have a major void they need to fill at left tackle and Fisher is the best available lineman at this position. By adding a left tackle, the Chargers will be able to provide Philip Rivers the protection he has lacked and hopefully it can jump start their offense.

12. Miami Dolphins – Cordarrelle Patterson, Wide Receiver, Tennessee

Patterson burst on to the scene this year after transferring up from the JUCO ranks and he was an absolute animal for the Volunteers. In the first game of the season, Patterson gashed the NC State defense and he didn’t slow down. Patterson is listed at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds and has game breaking speed. He has all of the tools to be a number one wideout in the NFL and he is only getting better.

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

After losing Aqib Talib via trade, the team needs to look for a replacement — especially with the news that Eric Wright could be gone in the offseason. Banks is the second best cornerback in this year’s class and no one will debate that he feels a major area of need.

14.  Carolina Panthers – Sheldon Richardson, Defensive Tackle, Missouri

The Panthers could use some new talent along their interior defensive line and Richardson could be a perfect fit. He is a big-bodied man who has a quick first step and can penetrate into the backfield.

15.  New Orleans Saints – Dion Jordan, Defensive End, Oregon

New Orleans needs to revamp their offense and Jordan is a top-tier pass rusher who’s stock is sliding because of surgery for a torn labrum. Jordan has one of the quickest first steps out of this year’s pass rushers and he will fit in perfectly on the right side of the Saints defensive line.

    AZ Cards will draft Off Tack. Period. They invested in Kolb and no QB had time to throw.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      They will be able to get rid of Kolb this offseason for relatively cheap this offseason. If they were so invested in Kolb, John Skelton wouldn’t have been given so many opportunities.

      • http://twitter.com/mattsblake Matt Blake

        I agree, but I also think that if they aren’t in love with a QB at #7, they’ll go OT. Just such a big glaring need there as well. But perhaps they’ll try to move up and grab Geno if KC punts on him. If only they hadn’t fired off those 4 wins early in the season…..

        • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

          Worst part for the Cardinals is that there are no offensive tackles worth a top ten pick outside of Joeckel. I don’t think they’d want to reach on Eric Fisher.

  • http://gridirongrit.com Michael Gartman

    Daneal Manning showed he can be the return guy for the Texans on Sunday. LSU LB Kevin Minter might be a good option for Houston though. Nice job, Josh.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      Thanks, Michael. I still think that offense is really lacking a slot receiver and there aren’t many available options that are better than Tavon Austin.

  • LSUFAN

    I just don’t see the Saints passing on Sam Montgomery if they get a d-end I just see him being the best fit other than that looks good.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      Dion Jordan is a top fifteen talent, but the labrum surgery will cause him to slide. He would be excellent value for New Orleans in that spot.

  • Joe Flacco’s Eyebrows

    Interesting pick for the Falcons. I wouldn’t be surprised if they trade up for Eifert, Ogletree, or a different pass rusher. Or they could take a RB, according to how fast they are getting drafted.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      Being the the NFC South with Drew Brees and Cam Newton, the Falcons need to get a top pass rusher. I think it’d be too hard for them to pass up on Montgomery.

      • Joe Flacco’s Eyebrows

        True, but TG is gone after this year and the Falcons have held off on drafting the next TE and none of the backups have too much experience. Ogletree might not be the best pass rusher, but he’s the best overall LB in this draft. Atlanta pretty much has no one at LB besides Spoon and Dent when healthy. Micheal Turner is done, and Jacquizz isn’t an every down back. Eddie Lacy could be the pick if his stock continues to rise.

        • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

          I agree on Lacey and TE is a glaring need. If either Eifert or Ertz slide in the draft, Atlanta will snag them. Unfortunately, neither fell in this scenario.

  • KCSPARKY

    This Chiefs fan wants….Joeckel!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      That would be a great pick, as well. I can see about five prospects worthy of the top pick. It will all come down to what needs Andy Reid and company address in free agency.

  • Michael_RoT

    Oh, man…Zach Ertz with the Packers? Awesome.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      Ertz doesn’t get the love he should from the national media. He is definitely worth a first-round pick.

      • carlosatUCLA

        Can you guys imagine Aaron Rodgers rolling out and he has ERTZ WIDE OPEN IN FRONT OF HIM? Good lord.

        • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

          It would spell trouble for the NFC North.

    Really think Milliner goes to Detroit? Curious if Tampa Bay will trade up seeing as they need secondary help badly…

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      I’m not sure Tampa Bay can afford to move up as far as they’d need to in order to secure Milliner. It’s more likely that they would sit tight and allow Johnathan Banks to fall into their laps.

      • http://twitter.com/UTEPMiners Leo

        Bucs have an extra fourth round pick from the Talib trade. Could use that to move up a few spots if Milliner is available in the 8-10 range. Would be funny, because they’d essentially be trading talib for milliner in that case.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mickeystraw Mike Straw Jr.

    No way the Bills take Nassib at 8. They will likely trade back into the first to pick him, but hes not going at 8. It just wouldn’t make sense

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      No one know Nassib better than Marrone. If he is the guy Marrone wants, they need to take him in the first. They may be able to trade back in the first and still land him, but I don’t project trades in mocks. If the Bills are hoping to land Nassib in the second, it is becoming less and less likely.

  • http://sidelionreport.com/ Zac Snyder

    With Moore, Werner and Joeckel off the board, I think this represents a worst-case scenario for the Lions. I’m not a fan of them taking Milliner in the top five but there aren’t many alternatives that make sense. Tough spot. If this is the way it plays out I would expect the Lions to try to trade down HARD.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      Absolutely, but if they find no trade partners, Milliner is a great pick.

  • carlosatUCLA

    No Barkley in the first round, instead opting for ‘Cuse QB Nassib as the second QB. That’ll make me pretty happy!

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      It’s possible that Barkley makes the first round, but he needs to improve his draft stock during the next couple of months.

      • carlosatUCLA

        He most likely will. Teams have a tendency to fall in love with QBs in the combines and such. If Barkley does that, who knows? He was off SIX WEEKS between losing to UCLA and getting destroyed by Barr and the Georgia Tech game, where he didn’t even suit up.

      • carlosatUCLA

        He’s very Chad Pennington-y though.

  • Dom DiTolla

    I don’t believe there is an “a” between the “n” and “t” in Johnthan Banks. Solid Mock overall, and I’d dance in the streets if Te’o somehow fell to Pittsburgh.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joshnsanchez Josh Sanchez

      You are write. Lots of variations of that name in this year’s draft ;)

  • disqus_jVNNc3Y0zB

    Atlanta needs to go rounds 1 through 7 DE,DE,DT,RB,TE,LB,S BASED ON TG/FA Hernandez (patriots) that TE could be a OL preferably a G

  • disqus_jVNNc3Y0zB

    Our defense lost the game today we need to fix it

  • paulbip

    Jarvis Jones could end up in a wheel chair if he has spinal stenosis and plays football. USC was right by not allowing him to play.
