2013 First Round Mock Draft: Jon Hake

January 3rd, 2013

17. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8) – Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia The Steelers have aged at OLB and Jones is too talented to pass on this late in the first round. Jones only slide this far because of his injury concerns. At this point those concerns are worth the risk of possibly the best pass rusher in the draft.

18. Dallas Cowboys (8-8) – Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama Warmack is the top guard on my board and the Cowboys need to improve their guard play. Warmack should be able to be plugged in from day one and contribute.

19. New York Giants (9-7) – Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon The Giants love athletic freaks and taking the BPA. Jordan fits both of those qualifications. He will need to be molded but what team is more equipped to mold a defensive lineman than the Giants?

20. Chicago Bears (10-6) – Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina The Bears continue to have offensive line struggles and until they find some form of combination they need to keep adding talent. Cooper is a complete guard and many have him as the best guard in the draft.

21. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1) – Arthur Brown, OLB, KSU My surprise pick in the draft comes with the selection of Arthur Brown. He is slightly undersized but his speed and instincts are great. He is a true playmaker on the Wildcats defense and I think as people watch more tape and see his numbers at the combine they will see the potential he possesses.

22. Minnesota Vikings (10-6) – Johnathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia The Vikings could use some youth on the interior of their offensive line and Jenkins is a big man to account for. Adding Jenkins to shore up the middle may help Allen continue to get pressure on opposing QB’s.

23. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) – Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU The Bengals have a strong interior defensive line because of the man beast Geno Atkins but they could use another pass rusher. Ansah is a pass rush specialist that may need to develop some before he is more than just a situational pass rusher but he could impact games his rookie year.

24. Baltimore Ravens (10-6) – Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU Baltimore’s defense isn’t the same as it was in previous years. They could choose to go Vaccaro or Ogletree here, to replace aging all-pros Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, but Mingo is great value this late in the first round.

25. Seattle Seahawks (11-5) – Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame The Seahawks have playmakers at QB, HB, and a solid offensive line but adding another weapon in Tyler Eifert should help give Wilson an outlet. There’s a common trend of drafting a top notch tight end with your young QB and this is the one for Tyler Wilson.

26. Indianapolis Colts (11-5) – Barrett Jones, OL, Alabama Jones is versatile and experienced. The Colts have needs at offensive line and Jones could fill the center role and provide depth at both guard spots.

27. Green Bay Packers (11-5) – Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU The Packers could use some depth at OLB and taking a chance on Sam Montgomery could pay off with his large upside. With the team lacking a need for a starter they can take risks on high upside players.

28. San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1) – Matt Elam, SS, Florida The Niners have one of the best defenses in football but they are getting to the resigning stage meaning they may lose Gholdson this season. Adding Elam gives them options and leverage in negotiating.

29. Houston Texans (12-4) – Kenny Vaccaro, CB/S, Texas The Texans needs are few but Vaccaro could help the secondary. He provides depth and competition at nearly every defensive back position and should push to start his rookie year.

30. New England Patriots (12-4) – Jesse Williams, DT/DE, Alabama Williams is a big physical DT that can play perfectly in the Patriots hybrid defense. He can play 4-3 DT and 3-4 DE if needed. Should help solidify one of the weak spots on the Patriots defense.

31. Denver Broncos (13-3) – Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia The Broncos biggest need by far comes at the MLB position. They have depth issues at other positions but adding a playmaker that can cover from sideline to sideline will ensure the success of this defense.

32. Arizona Cardinals (From Atlanta) – Mike Glennon, QB, NC State Another trade in the first round has Arizona moving back up in front of Jacksonville to select their developmental QB of the future. Kolb is likely the starter but Glennon is brought in to push and challenge for the starting spot.

    Great KC pick hope you do a 7 round draft for the Chiefs

  2. dbcouver says:

    Hey Jon Hake, long time no talk. I would approve of this draft, except I just couldn’t let Ogletree pass our pick at 21 even though he’s a MLB. Like you say, he’s awesome sideline to sideline. I’d like either him or Dion Jordan rather than Aurthur Jones.

    Anyhoo still doing live mocks at SBN, miss talkin to you and T Tango once in awhile.

    • Jon Hake says:

      Yeah definitely man. I’m on twitter @Jon_Hake. Should follow and we can dicuss more. I am fairly certain that LB is the pick. I am higher on Brown than most people are but I certainly understand Ogletree.

    • Jon Hake says:

      And if there are still live drafts I would definitely be interested as the chiefs rep. Any information would be appreciated.

  3. tyler says:

    1. I like the chiefs pick, spot on. 2. Why would the Raiders take a DT? They have Richard Seymour and Tommy Kelly? They Would most likely take luke joekel. 3. Eagles will take jake mathews. 4. The chargers will take keenan allen. 5. With no keenan allen the dolphins will trade down and pick up WR Tavon austion our of west virginia.

    • Jon Hake says:

      Richard Seymour will be making way too much money next season and I believe his repeated penalties and fines won’t sit well with their new leader. I see them splitting ways and Star replacing him.

  4. Trevor says:

    Good mock. I like the Patriots pick since they need DL help especially behind Wilfork.

    But, why don’t Mock Drafts EVER have Patriots trading down? How likely is it that BB doesn’t dump the 1st for more picks? As much as I’d like to add 1st rd talent to the D again I find it unlikely.

    How about a FA mock for Patriots? Who do you guys seeing them pursuing? Re-sign Welker? Pursue Amendola? FA OL?

    Also, Ballard & Demps will be joining the ranks soon.

    • Jon Hake says:

      Ballard was a player I loved for the Chiefs. Still upset about that one. I didn’t mock a Patriots trade down but I could easily have the QB move up to the bottom of the first with the Pats instead of the current team.

  5. bob says:

    your patriots pick is exactly right unless welker leaves or the secondary blows up again. they need dline playmakers.

    the bears pick not so much. they need playmakers on offense. that tight end you gave the seahawks would work well.

    • Jon Hake says:

      I could definitely see a receiver or tight end for Chicago. Just not sure if they still trust the offensive line there.

  6. Anthony says:

    Peppers? Bills?
