Andrew Parsons’ 2 Round Mock Draft (Trades Included): 4/9

Written by Andrew Parsons on April 9, 2013

2013 draft


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

Haven’t changed this pick. All indications have been that this is their guy. 2. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Geno Smith, West Virginia

Another pick that I don’t see myself changing as the draft approaches. New QB is the next logical step in the Jaguars rebuilding process. 3. Oakland Raiders: OLB Dion Jordan, Oregon

Last time, I went with Ziggy Ansah here. This time around, I chose Jordan. I know the Raiders signed a couple of free agent linebackers, but they are versatile, and so is Jordan. There’s a lot of options there. 4. Philadelphia Eagles: DT Star Lotulelei, Utah

Versatility seems to be the name of the game for the Eagles, and Star fits that mold better than Sharrif Floyd. 5. Detroit Lions: OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

One can easily make the chase that Fisher is superior to Joeckel. (read more…)

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Texas A&M


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

When adding up all the moves that have been made by the Chiefs this offseason, you have to figure the pick will be used for the guy they’ve been linked to all along. 2. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Geno Smith, West Virginia

New ownership, new management, new coach. New QB? I think so. Especially with GM David Caldwell coming from an organization (Falcons) that decided to pair a defensive minded head coach with a quarterback that everyone wasn’t sold on as a top pick. 3. Oakland Raiders: DE Ezekiel Ansah, BYU

A bit off the grid with this one. I don’t see the Floyd pick that everyone else does. With the lack of overall talent on the team,  signings of DTs Pat Sims and Vance Walker, and the option to move Lamarr Houston inside, I just can’t see another DT (read more…)

“My Guys” List

Written by Andrew Parsons on March 20, 2013

Dion was the 2013 prospect that I started with, by nothing more than chance.

In sports when you show an affinity towards a player, or express a higher opinion on him than most of your peers, you become almost linked to that player. This effect becomes amplified in the NFL Draft realm, as being a “draftnik” is far from an exact science, it’s all about projection. Show two evaluators the same tape of a prospect, and it shouldn’t be a surprise if they come to different conclusions.  Sometimes the link comes from being at the forefront of recognizing a prospect before he garners major recognition; sometimes it’s about acting like the prospect’s hype man. The exact reason is often unimportant, once others start to pick up on that affinity, or that “link”, the prospect becomes a term we’ve all heard, or have used in describing this connection; the prospect becomes “your guy.”

The idea of a “My Guys” list is something that came to (read more…)

Jimmy O’Brien’s 2013 Mock Draft

Written by Jimmy O'Brien on March 5, 2013


With Philadelphia-born Shariff Floyd atop the draft board, and both the Eagles and Andy Reid picking in the top four, the 2013 draft will have a distinct Philly flavor right from the outset.  And, like a South Philly steak lathered with cheese and onions, this draft is loaded with juice in the middle, with the first round peppered with solid talent, though the top ten features few sexy, cant’ miss quarterback or running back prospects.  In fact, you won’t find any first round RBs, and only one QB, along with no Tavon Austin, Jarvis Jones, Manti Te’o, Alec Ogletree, or Desmond Trufant.  But, you will find meaty prospects like Jamar Taylor, Larry Warford, Travis Kelce, and Da’Rick Rogers.  Like the waters down the Jersey shore, this draft runs deep, with more than a few surprises up top, if you just know where to look.
