2014 NFL Mock Draft

2013 NFL Mock Draft – Combine Edition

Posted by Brad On February - 25 - 2013

79. Pittsburgh Steelers – Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford

Stepfan Taylor didn’t run a great 40 time but it’s what you see on tape. He’s built for a power running game and is a guy that can carry the ball 20-25 times a game and gives you one of the best blocking RB’s in the draft.

80. Dallas Cowboys – EJ Manuel, QB, Florida St.

"EJ Manuel"

Tony Romo may be the short-term answer at QB for the Cowboys but they better start grooming his replacement. The ‘Boys have nothing behind Romo and Manuel is a guy that could pay dividends down the road.

81. New York Giants – Barrett Jones, OG/OC, Alabama

Is there a pick that makes more sense than Jones to the Giants. He fits everything Jerry Reese covets in a prospect. The Giants could be cutting some of their veteran talent on the OL.

82. Miami Dolphins – David Amerson, CB/FS, N.C. State

The Dolphins double up on the cornerback position? Amerson may be making the switch to the free safety position at the next level. His lack of foot speed was exposed badly against Tennessee and Florida St. He could be a prime candidate to be the next Antrel Rolle in the NFL as he makes the transition before the end of training camp.

83. Cincinnati Bengals – Tony Jefferson, FS, Oklahoma

Jefferson slides a bit but I’ve heard 3rd to 4th round grades on him. So, it should come to no surprise to anyone that he’s available for the Bengals at the end of round one.

84. Washington Redskins – David Bakhtiari, OG, Colorado

Bakhtiari is a perfect fit for Mike Shanahan’s scheme. The Redskins offensive line has to be addressed with their limited picks in the draft.

85. Minnesota Vikings – Montori Hughes, DT, Tennessee-Martin

The Vikings may find a gem in Hughes. He’s big, physical and more seasoned than anyone would expect from a small schooler.

86. Indianapolis Colts – Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas Pine-Bluff

One of the winners of the Combine is going to be Armstead. He’s an elite athlete that could develop into a starter at right or left tackle down the road.

87. Seattle Seahawks – John Simon, DE, Ohio State

If anyone can find a spot for Simon it’s going to be the Seahawks. He’s the hardest worker that fits in well with this team.

88. Green Bay Packers – Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

The Packers have a solid but unspectacular stable of RB’s. Ball has the ability to be a spectacular back but I worry about all the collegiate carries slowing him down.

89. Houston Texans – Reid Fragel, OT, Ohio St.

Zone scheme with a need at right tackle. Enter Reid Fragel who I think plays early in this system. He’s a former TE that is still learning from a technique standpoint but has all the tools to be a good one and steal of the draft. This guy is going to get drafted earlier than expected.

90. Denver Broncos – David Quessenberry, OG, San Jose St.

Ditto what I just said about Reid Fragel. This guy is a great fit in Denver’s scheme and is vastly underrated.

91. New England Patriots – Margus Hunt, DE, SMU

The freak show is about to begin in Indy. Hunt threw up 38 reps and will run like a deer at near 280 pounds. He can grow into his frame even more and a guy that the Patriots stash away for future dominance.

92. Atlanta Falcons – Nick Kasa, TE, Colorado

Kasa quietly put up one of the better performances of the TE class in Indy. He’s big and is just learning to play the position. A year behind Tony Gonzalez could work wonders for this kid.

93. San Francisco 49ers – Bennie Logan, DE, LSU

Bennie Logan shocked me with his weigh-in. If he can maintain his athleticism this may be a pipe dream for SF to land Logan at the end of round three.

94. Baltimore Ravens – Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M

Swope went 4.3 at the Combine. Despite small hands, they are pretty reliable. He gives the Ravens some insurance in case Anquan Boldin is cut to fit under the salary cap.

    Bailey over Patton, Williams, and Rogers? Really? We already have two wideouts like Bailey. We don’t need another 5’10 guy. Give us a wideout that is least 6’0 and up. Also if Arthur Brown run under 4.62, I’m taking him over Moore.

    • bradc11

      Arthur Brown may not run. If he does he will be under 4.62. Plays fast and I would take him in that range. Added weight will help him. I am going to count you as a Stedman Bailey hater. Kidding. I’d take him over everyone in this draft not named Cordarrelle Patterson and I’ve heard I’m not alone on that assessment. Don’t get lost in his 40 time. Agility and explosion drills were through the roof. He’s quicker than fast and is crafty as any WR in the draft.

      • neighborhooddrunkpart2

        I don’t hate Bailey, I just don’t want another short WR.

  • Reggie

    Brad you hit it spot on with the Lions. Eric Fischer is the best player at this point. I would love a DE over an OT but passing on Fischer is unwise. If we do take a DE it is looking like Ansah. That is the only player we hear about (which usually means that will not be the pick). I still think Werner should be taken over him but we shall see how the process unfolds.

    • bradc11

      Fisher fills a need and is BPA. If he’s there it will be tough for them to pass on. I’m a fan of Ansah’s to Detroit but it would be a toss up between him and Werner.

  • Reggie

    Ohhh Brad. Manti Te’o and Sam Montgomery? I do not know what to say to that. Lots of question marks surrounding those two

    • bradc11

      Great value picks where you get them. I struggled with Montgomery but I think Te’o really helps this defense. He’s a great value pick and adds on the field leadership. With the catfishing incident in the rearview mirror people are going to start focusing on football and he’s still pretty good at that.

      • Reggie

        I dont know with Te’o. Lacke elite athleticism and isnt a good fit at OLB in a 4-3. Usually agree with you but not on this one. Though saw some Carredine…you are right with him.

  • cory

    Once again, very close with my new mock! (trust me before I came on here) This was the one I came up with earlier today.
    1. KC- Joeckel 2. JAX- Fisher 3. OAK- Floyd 4. PHI- Jordan 5. DET- Ansah 6. CLE- Milliner 7. ARI- Smith 8. BUF- Barkley 9. NYJ- Patterson 10. TEN- Richardson
    I know pick two there is gonna be some disagreement. the jags will definitely be looking defense, but I think their best bet is taking a tackle. No matter who the QB is, Gabbart, 2nd or 3rd rounder, he needs to be able to stay in the pocket and that was my ideology on that

    • cory

      btw- yes, im going to give you some venom because of the Tank Carradine pick. It’s too low! I honestly see him going to TB/DAL/NYG, the 2013 Bruce Irvin

      • bradc11

        A lot with Carradine depends on his workout in April. He has said he’s going to do a full workout. If he does and looks good he could go top 15 easy.

    HOLY F***! Trufant, Hunter and Hunt all to my Pats? Hell yes! Make this happen!

    • Braeden

      I (a pats fan as well) would be thanking what ever godly force made this possible and knowing he is back on our side like in 2001-04.

      • bradc11

        I don’t think that draft is out of the realm of possibility. Hunter’s tape isn’t nearly as good as his workouts. Ditto that for Hunt…I have a 5th rd. grade on him. Trufant is one that may not make it to their pick.

  • Skinsfan

    Redskins don’t need a guard. They drafted one in the 3rd round last year. Needs are FS, CB, OT, TE, ILB.

    • Skinsfan

      Also Reid would be better then Elam in the 2nd round.
