KCCD Contributor: Jeremy Brade

With the Senior Bowl winding down and combine preparation gearing up, here is what I see happening this April in the 2013 NFL Draft.

1. Kansas City Chiefs: OT – Luke Joeckel; Texas A&M

This is essentially a two position decision for Kansas City. This pick also will shape the entire 1st Round if they go QB. But, they won’t. Despite needing a new Quarterback to start the Andy Reid regime, there just isn’t one worthy of the #1 pick overall. Therefore, the Chiefs will instead fortify their line with an anchor of a Left Tackle and pick up a QB later on.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: DE – Bjoern Woerner; Florida State

Another team that could use a QB (seriously, it’s a long list). Still too high though. Fortunately for Jacksonville, there are a lot of holes to fill. The Jaguars will have to decide who the best Defensive End is of the top 3 guys and set the tone for the rest of the teams in need of the same position. I think they stay in-state with Woerner.

3. Oakland Raiders: DT – Star Lotulelei; Utah

The Raiders need help on both the Offensive and Defensive Line. With Star considered to be perhaps the best player in the Draft, the decision will get made for them. Reggie McKenzie will jump at the chance to put a future Pro-Bowler in the middle of his Defensive Line.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: OG – Chance Warmack; Alabama

Despite their record, the Eagles don’t appear to have as many holes as their Draft slot would indicate. One glaring weakness however, is at Guard. Warmack is the obvious choice.

5. Detroit Lions: CB – Dee Milliner: Alabama

If there is an obvious pick in this Draft, it is the Lions getting a lockdown Cornerback for the first time since…uh…hmm….Lem Barney in the mid-70’s? Expect Milliner to put on a Detroit hat while in NYC.

6. Cleveland Browns: DE – Barkevious Mingo: LSU

Cleveland will be quick to improve their pass rush through this Draft. The 2nd DE will come off the board and Mingo will head to the Dawg Pound. There is a ‘Bark’ reference in there somewhere.

7. Arizona Cardinals: QB – Geno Smith; West Virginia

Prepare to be amazed. Without moving up and wasting Draft picks, the Arizona Cardinals will still get the 1st Quarterback to come off the board. Smith will be tabbed as the new Quarterback of the Cardinals to run the Offense under Head Coach Bruce Arians.

8. Buffalo Bills: S – Kenny Vaccaro; Texas

The easiest way for the Bills to improve the back of their Defense, is to take the best player available to do that. Say hello to Vaccaro. He provides them with the coverage skills they need in their secondary which should lead to improvement from their Defensive Line.

9. New York Jets: DE – Damontre Moore; Texas A&M

There’s a good chance the Jets will look at every position available in this Draft. That makes this pick an easy one. Start by taking the best player on the board at the time. Moore is a Top 5 talent and will fall only because he is the 3rd DE taken in 9 picks.

10. Tennessee Titans: OG – Jonathan Cooper; North Carolina

The Tennessee pick will ultimately come down to Offense or Defense (at least I eliminated Special Teams). Ultimately it comes down to Cooper or Jarvis Jones. The opportunity to improve the interior of their Offensive Line is too good to pass up.

11. San Diego Chargers: OT – Eric Fisher; Central Michigan

New Head Coach Mike McCoy would like to start his San Diego tenure with a healthy Quarterback. In order to do that, they will need to improve their Offensive Line with a new Tackle in order to try and keep Phillip Rivers playing all year. Fisher is the clear choice and should be able to take over immediately.

12. Miami Dolphins: LB – Jarvis Jones; Georgia

After Jones gets passed over by the Titans, the Dolphins couldn’t be happier. He should be a perfect fit for their Defense to go after the Quarterback opposite Cameron Wake.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: CB – Johnathan Banks; Mississippi State

The Defense of the Bucs could use some attention and after selecting guys up front the past couple Drafts, this year they go Defensive Back. Banks is the best Cornerback left and should make an immediate impact.

14. Carolina Panthers: DL – Sheldon Richardson; Missouri

Though the Offensive Line could use some attention, there are no players highly rated enough to take at 14. The Panthers are a perfect fit to trade down but if they remain, Richardson seems like a good fit among their Defensive Line.

15. New Orleans Saints: DT – Johnathan Hankins; Ohio State

Yet another team that needs serious help on the defensive side of the ball (actually no one needs it more than the Saints). Hankins might be a bit of a reach here but will desperately help them in the middle of their Defensive Line and should help shore up their running D.

16. St. Louis Rams: OT – Lane Johnson; Oklahoma

The Rams could use immediate help at Wide Receiver, but they will wait until their 2nd pick of the 1st Round to fill that need. They pick up Johnson and try to help Bradford stay off the turf.

    Geeze, you guys out in KC land are really confused. First if Smith isn’t a 1#1 fine, consider that no O-linemen is either. Ans: trade down, then trade down again. get a couple extra picks for this and next year and still hav a mid 1st round pick this year where you take the 2nd or 3rd best OT or developemental QB there. Doesn’t have to be either or.

  2. Lokrath says:

    How many teams has anyone said they are a good LT away from being a good team?

    • boyd says:

      I know. LUKE J is the man…the “best available” man for this team. I hope that Dorsey isnt a liar like Pee-oli back when he said before picking Poe…”We dont just look at combine numbers…and I Always believe in drafting a QB somewhere in the draft.” All lies…please Dorsey dont be a liar…pick the “best Available” like you said u would. FYI Geno Smith is maybe the 100th most best available.

  3. Nate says:

    Luke Joeckel; Texas A&M is the best pick for KC. This QB class is bad. I can’t see Jarvis Jones dropping that far but, good job on the draft for the most part.

  4. Dan says:

    saw Warmack at 4 and quit reading… guards dont go top 5 or even 10

    • boyd says:

      whatever dude. warmack would be a BETTER pick than Smith for the Chiefs

      • Dan says:

        guard at # 1 overall…. sure dude such an impact position. #NoWay

      • chieftiger says:

        Your a MORON!!

        • boyd says:

          chieftiger YOURE the moron. football 101. Championship teams are built from the Lines out. which the chefs have jack crap.and oh those douches they picked last year?? Piolis fired for a reason idiot. you REALLY think Dorsey will get Smith? no way fool

          • Dan says:

            not saying joeckel wouldnt be a good pick. but DE, LT, and especially QB are the most important positions in the NFL and thats why since 1996 every pick has been at that position. with 12 qb’s being taken

  5. chieftiger says:

    Why would we take a OL when we drafted two OL last year. Let waste a NO.1 pick on OL. When we have a gaping hole at QB.

    • boyd says:

      BECAUSE….He’d be the BEST O lineman the Chefs has EVER had. Did you WATCH Geno Smith vs Syracuse?…he stinks man…Id rather Taj Boyd. He actually BEAT a real LSU D in the last game…an we could get him LAAAAATE. Its LUKE JOECKEL or bust buddy. If they f up an get Smith…it will be very sad.

      • chieftiger says:

        Great let have a great OL an no one to play behind it. Taj boyd What are you smoking! geno smith with a good team around him tore it up last year. He is the best QB in the draft and will prove it at the combine.

        • boyd says:

          You wanna compare? Ill give you a few facts and you can look up the rest.
          First off.Boyd finished with a higher QB rating than Smith…He also only had 2 losses with an EXCEPTIONAL fanally
          win over a BADAAS LSU D…( probly 4 or 5 of those LSU guys will be drafted)…Your so-called great GENO SMITH
          had 5….5 Losses in a row!! against mediocre teams for the most part. and the better teams he played…Texas Tech and K state…
          the dude only put up 14 in total blowout loses in both cases. haha and that WITH WR 1st rd pick Austin and Bailey…they couldnt even get some garbage points….wow! i really think hes the next great QB the Chiefs need.haha
          Ok now for the great GENOS finally!! against a descent team at best Syracuse?….haha he puts yet ANOTHER 14 up in yet ANOTHER blowout loss. .lol wow! man I hope the Chefs get him!!! really i do!!
          Not ONE team he beat this year was ranked at ANY time. every D he played was a total joke.
          Geno Smith will be a BUST. and he will be because our Oline sucks Baaaaaad. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.
          AND YES..YES!!! with a bull-horn…I would totally take Boyd in the 6th maybe 5th rd WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than picking smith first.
          I only pray that our new GM isnt so foolish as some of the chiefsnation.

          • chieftiger says:

            MORON!! Are line sucked becuase of injuries not personal. You are living proof that any FOOL can produce a mock draft!

          • Dan says:

            yea Boyd you suck. theres a reason your not getting payed hundreds of thousands to scout quarterbacks and others are

          • boyd says:

            no this site is living proof of the idiocracy of chef nation. GENO FN SMITH!! he’ll destroy the team. Ill be around…we’ll see whos right “DAN”…”CHIEF TIGER”?

          • Dan says:

            who do you think Detroit will take? no way they take a corner after taking 3 last year in the draft. especially when Patrick Peterson went at that same spot and Milliner is nowhere near as good nor the best availible

          • boyd says:

            man if detriot could get Milliner…they will get him. ihe will be gone by then. so i asumme theyll get the best available in the 2ndary if they have any sense. hah watch em get a WR now w/out titas.

    • boyd says:

      oh and the 2 Olinemen Allen and Donaldson??? Those guys suck too. Yet another bust by Pioli…Newsflash. Piolis out. expect a few changes

  6. EccentricFan says:

    I really don’t think the Bills take Vaccaro. George Wilson is losing a step with age, so we do have need of a strong safety, but with Jairus Byrd handling free safety, we’re set there.

    Yes, I know he’s a Free Agent this year, but if worse comes to worst, there’s no one else for the Bills to spend their franchise tag on this year, so he’s all but certain to stick around one more year.

    Now Jarvis Jones would be a good way to help the defense. The Bills are weaker at linebacker than at any other position group.
