2013 NFL Mock Draft: Madson
KCCD Editor: Jason Madson
Mock Updated:November 2, 2012
1. Kansas City Chiefs
Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
Whether Scott Pioli is still the GM or not, this pick needs to be a QB. I’d accept a trade similar to what the Rams picked up for RG3, but other than that, keep this pick and take the best QB available.
2. Carolina Panthers
Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State
Dominating force in the middle would upgrade the Panthers bottom 3rd rush D. He can get some pressure as well. Panthers would be strong up the middle with this selection.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah
Another force in the middle goes early. Star brings a rare blend of power and quickness to the table that every NFL team covets. He’ll be a long-time star in the middle for the Jags.
4. Cleveland Browns
Sam Montgomery, DE/OLB, LSU
What he brings to the table is raw, untapped potential. He has shown off a glimpse of his skills at LSU, but the best is yet to come. Long arms, powerful and has the burst you want off the edge.
5. New Orleans Saints
Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, Georgia
Jarvis may be a bit undersized to be a 4-3 DE, but he can get to the QB. Teams will find a spot for the super talented pass rusher.
6. St Louis Rams via Redskins
Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M
Best pass blocker in this draft, lands in a spot that desperately needs it.
7. St Louis Rams
Keenan Allen, WR, Cal
Bradford has a blindside protector and now a true number one target. It won’t be “The Greatest Show On Turf”, but this Rams team added to studs to their offense in back to back picks.
8. Tennessee Titans
Johnthan Banks,CB, Mississippi State
The Titans get a true “shutdown” corner. Banks has the length, size, speed and athleticism to sit on an island for the Titans.
9. New York Jets
Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State
Freakishly talented defensive end lands in a spot that he will impact immediately. The term “non-stop motor” is overused with Werner, but it fits.
10. Cincinnati Bengals
Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
Solid, steady defensive end from the SEC. He gets to the QB on a regular basis and isn’t bad vsthe run either.
11. Tampa Bay Bucs
Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Physical and has a mean streak, this Wolverine is the next great OT from Big Blue.
12. San Diego Chargers
Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
The bloodlines can be where you start, but his play on the field is what’s getting him drafted here. Has the ability to play either right or left tackle. Rivers needs some time back there to set up his deep throws.
13. Buffalo Bills
CJ Mosley, LB, Alabama
Maybe a surprise pick here, but Mosley is a stud. He can do it all. Blitz, play the run and the pass. He came back from that nasty hip injury in the BCS Title Game to lead the Bama defense.
14. Oakland Raiders
Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
This is a Raiders pick if you’ve ever seen one. He will blow up the Combine with his numbers, but his play on the field hasn’t quite matched yet. Could be a JPP type pick for Oakland, if he realizes his potential.
15. Detroit Lions
Dee Milliner, DB, Alabama
The Lions getting a big-time, physical cornerback that they have needed for years. Milliner is another piece for the Lions defense.
16. Dallas Cowboys
Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
This is a scary thought. Ware on one side and Dion Jordan on the other? This instantly makes the Cowboys defense a scary site for opposing QBs and offensive coordinators. Jordan is a long athlete that uses his many tools to beat the blockers. Has ability in pass coverage as well.
