New Two-Round Mock by Jon Dove

Written by Jon Dove on January 5, 2013


The 2013 NFL Draft is just around the corner, and that means you can expect to see a large number of mock drafts. Don’t overlook the mocks that come out this early, because they’re typically based more on the writers’ takes on the prospects.

As we get closer to the draft, rumors about which players teams are targeting really start to influence the world of mocks.

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

Andy Reid knows how much a shaky offensive line can impact an offense.

2. Jacksonville – Jarvis Jones – OLB – Georgia

The Jags need someone who can generate pressure on the quarterback.

3. Oakland – Star Lotulelei – DT – Utah

Oakland just needs a young stud to build around.

4. Philadelphia – Taylor Lewan – OT – Michigan

Philly needs a young anchor on the offensive line.

5. Detroit – Dion Jordan – DE – Oregon

Cliff Avril’s status is up in the air; Jordan would be great replacement.

6. Cleveland – Damontre Moore – DE – Texas A&M

Moore’s pass-rush ability could help take the Browns’ defense to the next level.

7. Arizona – Geno Smith – QB – West Virginia

Geno might not last this long, but if he does the Cardinals will be thrilled.

8. Buffalo – Bjoern Werner – DE – Florida State

Buffalo wants a QB, but Werner represents better value. Don’t fool yourself, Mark Anderson isn’t a consistent pass-rusher.

9. New York Jets – Manti Te’o – LB – Notre Dame

The Jets need leadership, among many other things. Te’o would be a leader on and off the field.

10. Tennessee – Chance Warmack – OG – Alabama

The Titans need a solid running game for Jake Locker to succeed, so getting the most dominant interior lineman is a good start.

11. San Diego – Dee Milliner – CB – Alabama

San Diego is hurt the most by Jake Matthews’ decision to return to school. Milliner represents a long-term replacement for Quentin Jammer.

12. Miami – Barkevious Mingo – DE – LSU

It’s time to move Jared Odrick to the three-technique and find a pass-rusher to help Cameron Wake.

13. Tampa Bay – Johnthan Banks – CB – Mississippi State

Eric Wright was never worth the contract he received last season. Banks represents an instant upgrade.

14. Carolina – Sylvester Williams – DT – North Carolina

Williams might be the most disruptive interior defender in this draft. Look for him to move up the boards throughout the process.

15. New Orleans – Ezekiel Ansah – DE – BYU

Will Smith just isn’t cutting it anymore. Adding a young talent like Ansah will allow the team to cut ties.

16. St. Louis – Keenan Allen – WR – Cal

St. Louis needs someone with the potential to develop into a true No. 1 wide receiver.
