2013 Post-Combine Mock NFL Draft: Round 1

Terron Armstead in the First Round?

Please follow This Link to see our final 2013 NFL Mock Draft.

1. Kansas City Chiefs
5T Star Lotulelei, Utah
Of course, this is dependent on Lotulelei's heart checking out. Andy Reid has said they will "take the best player available." Many think that is Lotuleili. In the last 10 drafts, the first player the Eagles have taken have played DT (4 Cox, Laws, Bunkley, Patterson), DE (2 Graham, McDougle), OG (2 Watkins, Andrews), QB (1 Kolb), WR (1 Maclin).
2. Jacksonville Jaguars
LE Ezekiel Ansah, Brigham Young
Ansah is the hottest name in the draft right now and has the most positional flexibility. He could be the Jags' selection at 2.
3. Oakland Raiders
SLB Dion Jordan, Oregon
This could just as easily be Jarvis Jones, as Oakland takes their own hyper-athletic undersized end and hopes to re-create Denver's success with Von Miller.
4. Philadelphia Eagles
RT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
Chip Kelly takes Eric Fisher, who will be penciled in on the right side. Jason Peters is coming off a torn achilles, and Fisher would take that spot if Peters can't go.
5. Detroit Lions
LE Bjoern Werner, Florida State
Detroit needs two starting defensive ends, so they start here with Werner who has the special ability to add pressure from the left side.
6. Cleveland Browns
CB Dee Milliner, Alabama
Cleveland needs a cornerback in the worst way. Their defense was awful with Joe Haden out, and now they are left to replace last year's other starting corner, Sheldon Brown.
7. Arizona Cardinals
LT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma
Bruce Arians knows no quarterback can survive behind Arizona's abysmal line, so he drafts the best left tackle in the draft.
8. Buffalo Bills
QBm Geno Smith, West Virginia
With no surefire ace wide receivers in the draft, Buffalo should be tripping over themselves to pick up Geno Smith if available.
9. New York Jets
OLB Damontre Moore, Texas A&M
He really shouldn't fall this far, but the combine always moves people's stock. Jarvis Jones is another option, as is Warmack, but right now the Jets have nobody to man their pass-rush positions.
10. Tennessee Titans
OG Chance Warmack, Alabama
The Titans take the road-paving Warmack for their Ferrari Chris Johnson.
11. San Diego Chargers
LT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
San Diego is excited that the last remaining premier left tackle is still available, so they snag Joeckel.
12. Miami Dolphins
CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida State
Miami appears to be losing both of their starting corners from the beginning of last season so they take in-state product Rhodes to replace the big CB Sean Smith
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
CB Desmond Trufant, Washington
Tampa needs cornerbacks, and Desmond Trufant has shown that his skills and natural talent are on par with anyone's at the corner position.
14. Carolina Panthers
UT Kawann Short, Purdue
The Panthers need two defensive tackles, and I have them taking the most productive of those mentioned in the first round. Short dominated the OL-rich B1G while on an inferior team and will be asked to do the same in Carolina.
15. New Orleans Saints
OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia
New Orleans is transitioning to a 3-4 this year, and they'll need players who can fill their new roles. Jarvis Jones can go much higher, as high as 1, but a combination of his medical condition and questions about his size could push him down this far.
16. St. Louis Rams
OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina
Jeff Fisher like to spend his early picks on linemen, and he nabs the man many think is the best OG in the draft.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers
OLB Barkevious Mingo, LSU
James Harrison is old, expensive, and no longer very good. Even if they don't cut him, they have to find a replacement for him.
18. Dallas Cowboys
LE Datone Jones, UCLA
The Cowboys pick up a terrific left defensive end in Datone Jones for their conversion to the 4-3 defense. One of the most-versatile players in the draft, Jones can even rush from the interior on third downs.
19. New York Giants
UT Sharrif Floyd, Florida
The Giants pick up Sharrif Floyd to take Chris Canty's spot in their defensive tackle rotation with Rocky Bernard and Linval Joseph.
20. Chicago Bears
LT Terron Armstead, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
The Chicago Bears need a whole bunch of help on the OL if they are going to keep Cutler from dying on the field this year, so they make sure they get their left tackle in Armstead.
21. Cincinnati Bengals
FS Kenny Vaccaro, Texas
After years of drafting too-tall safeties that never see the field, Cincinnati is happy that Vaccaro fell to them here.
22. St. Louis Rams (from WAS)
SS Matt Elam, Florida
Fisher grabs the hard-hitting Elam who can line up at FS or SS.
23. Minnesota Vikings
WRs Tavon Austin, West Virginia
Minnesota nabs Tavon Austin, as it frees them up to trade headache Percy Harvin. Austin offers similar versatility, having rushed for 344 yards on 21 carries vs. Oklahoma this year.
24. Indianapolis Colts
NT John Jenkins, Georgia
The Colts needs to get better on defense, and taking Jenkins here would greatly improve a key position in their 3-4.
25. Seattle Seahawks
UT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri
Seattle needs an under tackle to provide some interior pass rush. Richardson is the pick here, though he typically goes much higher in other mocks.
26. Green Bay Packers
TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame
The Packers and Jermichael Finley appear to be at an impasse on his salary. A center is a need for the Packers, but they can get a good one in the second. I'm giving them Eifert expecting that they won't give up on last year's first round pick Perry yet, though I thought it was a bad fit when they made the pick last year.
27. Houston Texans
NT Jesse Williams, Alabama
With Shaun Cody on his way out, this is Houston's opportunity to secure a real nose tackle for the first time since they switched to the 3-4. I think Williams would be a good pick for them here.
28. Denver Broncos
NT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State
Johnathan Hankins would give the Broncos a heavy handed fat man that can move in the middle of their defense. It's a big need for them and a good fit I believe.
29. New England Patriots
WRf Terrance Williams, Baylor
New England has a need for perimiter players on both sides of the ball, especially following the guilty verdict in Alfonso Dennard's felonious assault trial. I'll give them the most well-rounded wide receiver here, though, in Terrance Williams.
30. Atlanta Falcons
OLB Alex Okafor, Texas
Atlanta is overhauling their defense, as is apparent in their releasing of John Abraham and Dunta Robinson. Okafor is too good of a value as a pass rusher and potential OLB if they go to a 3-4 under Nolan as many expect. A Tony Gonzales replacement could be a first round option as well.
31. San Francisco 49ers
WRf Robert Woods, Southern California
I was tempted to give them the local fit for this need in Keenan Allen, but I think Robert Woods is a better player. With Manningham on the way out and last year's first round pick AJ Jenkins seemingly destined for the slot, Woods would be a tremendous upgrade for the 49ers opposite Michael Crabtree. This pick is rumored to be eventual trade-bait for Darrelle Revis, but until that trade goes through, I'm sticking with this pick.
32. Baltimore Ravens
LT Kyle Long, Oregon
Baltimore could be facing finding new starters at LT, FS, MLB, WR, CB, C, and WLB this offseason if Flacco gets his money. I'm giving them Kyle Long, the last LT that looks to me to be an above-average starter from Day 1. It's tough to leave these WRs and CBs on the board, but what is the sense of paying a QB $20 MM and then not protect him?
