Live 2013 NFL Mock Draft 2/28

February 28th, 2013

33. Jacksonville Jaguars: Johnathan Banks, CB, Mississippi State

The Jags need a corner. Banks fits Gus Bradley’s mold of a tall, lanky cornerback.

34. San Francisco 49ers: Margus Hunt, DE, SMU

Justin Smith is getting old and will start declining. The 49ers can select a replacement here.

35. Philadelphia Eagles: Kevin Minter, LB, LSU

The Eagles need help at linebacker in a big way. Minter is a talented backer that fits here.

36. Detroit Lions: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky

Warford was dominant at the Senior Bowl. The Lions could use some offensive line help.

37. Cincinnati Bengals: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

With Michael Johnson possibly leaving in free agency, the Bengals will need an edge rusher across from Carlos Dunlap. Even if Johnson is retained, the Bengals could still bolster their pass rush.

38. Arizona Cardinals: Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas

I honestly think Wilson will go late first round, but a team will trade up for him. The Cards can get their QB of the future here.

39. New York Jets: Matt Barkley, QB, USC

Another QB I think could go late first round if a team wants to trade up for him. The Jets need an upgrade at QB in the worst way.

40. Tennessee Titans: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State

The Titans have issues in their secondary. Poyer is a solid corner that can help the Titans recover from the loss of Cortland Finnegan.

41. Buffalo Bills: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson

Buffalo needs to give Geno Smith somebody to throw to aside from Steve Johnson. Hopkins is an underrated guy and could provide a big spark.

42. Miami Dolphins: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford

The Dolphins need a reliable tight end for Ryan Tannehill to throw to. Ertz is solid in every facet of his game.

43. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Manti Te’o, ILB, Notre Dame

The Buccaneers could fill a need with the addition of Te’o. Mason Foster could move outside to his more natural position of OLB. Te’o's stock really dropped with a poor combine.

44. Carolina Panthers: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech

Cam Newton could use a receiver. Steve Smith is still productive, but outside of him there hasn’t been much production. Patton is an all-around solid receiver that wowed at the Senior Bowl.

45. San Diego Chargers: Giovanni Bernard, RB, North Carolina

With Ryan Matthews being a bust, the Chargers will be in the market for a running back. Bernard is the best available.

46. St. Louis Rams: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor

The Rams could give Sam Bradford some help here. Williams was impressive at Baylor.

47. Dallas Cowboys: Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State

With the Cowboys moving to a 4-3, they’ll need defensive linemen to match their scheme. Carradine tore his ACL in November, but he’s reportedly almost back from the injury. If he has a good showing on his pro day next month, he’ll vault into high first round consideration.

48. Pittsburgh Steelers: Eric Reid, S, LSU

Troy Polamalu’s production has slipped and Ryan Clark is getting up there. Steelers need some safety help.

49. New York Giants: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue

With Chris Canty no longer in New York, the Giants have to find somebody to fill the void at defensive tackle. Short is the best available.

50. Chicago Bears: Barrett Jones, OL, Alabama

Even with selecting a tackle in the 1st, the Bears still need more offensive line help. Jones gives them a versatile lineman they can play in multiple spots.

51. Washington Redskins: Matt Elam, S, Florida

Both of Washington’s safety spots could be upgraded. Elam is the top safety available.

52. Minnesota Vikings: Jessie Williams, DT, Alabama

The Vikings defensive line could use some help. Jessie Williams is a big man and a force against the run.

53. Cincinnati Bengals: Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson

The Bengals could use an upgrade over Benjarvis Green-Ellis. Ellington is the best running back on the board.

54. Miami Dolphins: Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State

Secondary is a big need for the Dolphins. Taylor really improved his stock by his impressive showing at the combine.

55. Green Bay Packers: Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati

Jermichael Finley’s days in Green Bay are numbered. The Packers add a talented player to fill the void at the TE position.

56. Seattle Seahawks: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina

Seattle will just keep adding to their already talented defensive line. Williams can provide interior pass rush.

57. Houston Texans: Johnathan Jenkins, NT, Georgia

The Texans could really use an upgrade at nose tackle. Jenkins is a huge guy and first round talent, but his stock has slipped some lately.

58. Denver Broncos: Bennie Logan, DT, LSU

Defensive tackle is a position the Broncos could use some help at. Logan would be a nice compliment to Derrick Wolfe.

59. New England Patriots: Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M

Swope shocked everybody with his impressive combine. He’s vaulted himself into 2nd round discussion. He’d serve as a nice replacement for Wes Welker.

60. Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Thomas, G/OT, Tennessee

The Falcons offensive line is still in question. Thomas could provide an upgrade here.

61. San Francisco 49ers: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee

The 49ers are in a really flexible position. They’ve already drafted for glaring needs, so they can use a luxury pick on a receiver with tremendous upside.

62: Baltimore Ravens: Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State

With Ed Reed likely moving on this offseason, the Ravens need to find a replacement. Thomas would give the Ravens great versatility in the back-end of their secondary.
