Hines' First Mock Draft-Post Senior Bowl
 
This is a mock in January. Probably won't be my best work or my last attempt. No trades.


1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-14)- Luke Joeckel OT Texas A&M

-No clear cut number 1 guy. Could the Chiefs chose a QB? Yes, but Reid has shown he can develop a QB later in the draft and the QB class is very underwhelming.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-14)- Bjoern Werner DE Florida State

-Jacksonville needs a pass rush and I believe Werner is the best of the bunch with the least amount of risk.

3. Oakland Raiders (4-12)- Star Lotulelei DL Utah

-Raiders defense was bad this season. Richard Seymour looks to be leaving and they could replace him with Lotulei.

4. Philadelphia Eagles (4-12)- Geno Smith QB West Virginia

-Chip Kelly is in charge and may want a QB to fit in his system. While Smith isn't the most mobile guy he has had, he certainly isn't a statue and I believe could fit his system well.

5. Detroit Lions (4-12)- Dee Milliner CB Alabama

-Outside of Chris Houston, the Lions CBs are unknown guys. In a division with Aaron Rodgers and Jay Cutler, the team needs to solidify the back end of their defense.

6. Cleveland Browns (5-11)- Damontre Moore DE Texas A&M

-Ray Horton is now in charge of a defense that has talent, but needs more of a pass rush. Horton and Cleveland will be thrilled to land Moore in this spot.

7. Arizona Cardinals (5-11)- Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan

-The Cards have a gaping hole at QB, but that won't matter because their OL is the worst in the league.

8. Buffalo Bills (6-10)- Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee

-His hands are inconsistent and didn't put up gaudy numbers in his one season at Tennessee, but could be the best WR in this draft and some team will reach on him due to what he will do at the Combine.

9. New York Jets (6-10)- Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia

-Jones finally gets taken. While his medical is a cause for concern, the Jets need a pass rush bad and Jones is the best one out there.

10. Tennessee Titans (6-10)- Chase Womack G Alabama

-The interior line is not good for the Titans. While a reach in terms of value, Womack will be a Pro Bowl guard in a few years.

11. San Diego Chargers (7-9)- Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma

-San Diego's OL was in bad shape last year due to injuries. Johnson will be a Day 1 starter and strengthen that unit up.

12. Miami Dolphins (7-9)- Keenan Allen WR California

-I expect the Dolphins to resign Hartline and land one of the big FA WRs, but I believe they need more. Allen gives that team another threat since they lacked points on the scoreboard.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)- Johnthan Banks CB Mississippi State

-Eric Wright was a bust signing, Barber got moved to S, and they lack a number 1 guy. Banks comes in and strengthens a position of need for a potential break out team in 2013.

14. Carolina Panthers (7-9)- Sheldon Richardson DT Missouri

-Carolina's run defense was bad. Richardson helps that.

15. New Orleans Saints (7-9)- Jonathan Hankins DT Ohio State

-With news that they are moving to a 34 next year, the Saints will need a big NT to help that transition.

16. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1)- Kenny Vaccaro S Texas

-Craig Dahl and Quintin Mikell aren't good and should be cut once the offseason starts. Vaccaro will come in and help an already strong secondary.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8)- Dion Jordan OLB Oregon

-I really don't think he fits Pittsburgh's defense, but they need another pass rusher. The success of Aldon Smith could make them pull the trigger.

18. Dallas Cowboys (8-8)- Shariff Floyd DT Florida

-With the team moving to a 43 and lack of impact DTs, Floyd may be the best player on their board.

19. New York Giants (9-7)- Ezekiel Ansah DE BYU

-After the Senior Bowl, his stock may skyrocket before this pick, but I believe this is the perfect spot for him. If he develops into the player people think he could be, he and JPP would be very deadly.

20. Chicago Bears (10-6)- Arthur Brown LB Kansas State

-The defense needs to find replacements for Urlacher and Briggs. Brown is a step up.

21. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6)- Manti Te'o LB Notre Dame

-Once hyped to be a top 5 pick, his National Championship Game and hoax situation might push him down. The Bengals have had success dealing with these type of players and he and Burfict could be a nice foundation at LB.

22. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1) (trade with Washington Redskins)- DJ Fluker OT Alabama

-Rams OL was not good last year. Wayne Hunter should not be a starting RT in the NFL. Fluker has a chance to beat him out day 1.

23. Minnesota Vikings (10-6)- DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson

-They still have Percy Harvin, who is the midst of trade rumors and not likely to resign with the club. They drafted two WRs last year and could make a play for the top WRs in FA, but I believe they need more. Hopkins really broke out last year and his speed and skills should help Ponder out a ton.

24. Indianapolis Colts (11-5)- Barkevious Mingo OLB LSU

-While his athletic ability isn't knocked, it's his production that is. Didn't have a great Jr. season, but has some of the highest potential in the draft. Pagano will help him reach that.

25. Seattle Seahawks (11-5)- Jonathan Cooper G North Carolina

-Just a hair under Womack as far as ability. He'd improve a disappointing line.

26. Green Bay Packers (11-5)- Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame

-The Packers should move on from Finley. Eifert will make Packer fans forget all about him.

27. Houston Texans (12-4)- Jesse Williams DL Alabama

-Despite all the talent Wade Phillips has added to that defense, they don't have a for sure NT. Williams is versatile and should find somewhere to play along the DL.

28. Denver Broncos (13-3)- Xavier Rhodes CB Florida State

-I don't think Champ plays much longer and they don't have any number 1 CBs waiting in the wings.

29. New England Patriots (12-4)- Tavon Austin WR West Virginia

-Wes Welker seems to be headed towards free agency and I don't think the team brings him back. Austin, though small, can get behind defenders and make those defenders miss. He'd be a nice little weapon for that offense.

30. Atlanta Falcons (13-3)- Sam Montgomery DE LSU

-With a list of needs, it's a wonder how Atlanta made it to the NFCCG, but with John Abraham getting older and a lack of pass rush outside of him, I feel like it is their biggest need.

31. Baltimore Ravens (10-6)*- Kevin Minter LB LSU

-Ray Lewis is gone after next week's game and they don't have a replacement for him. Minter has three down potential and could be the leader of their defense in no time.

32. San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1)- Desmond Trufant CB Washington

-The D is set, but their CBs can be very suspect. Trufant has been flying up boards and I can see his name being called in the late first round here in San Fran.



Comments and constructive criticism is always welcome.

If the Packers go TE in round one, Ertz makes more sense given he's a larger target and better pass catcher than Eifert.

Trogdor 01-27-2013 10:23 AM

Already being reported that Dallas is planning to keep Ratliff this offseason. Without adding anyone we have Ratliff, Hatcher, Lissemore, Calloway, and Bass. That doesn't include Marcus Spears whom I see being moved or cut.

Outside at DE unless we sign Spencer we're going to have a hole and zero depth. Crawford would be projected to start opposite Ware with Hatcher also able to kick out but regardless a talent infusion is going to be needed.

If Ansah falls to Dallas I can't see them falling considering the move to 4-3 has given Dallas a strength at defensive tackle while a hole at defensive end.

vidae 01-27-2013 10:37 AM

Really not a great KC pick. Branden Albert is still on the team right now, so OT isn't even close to a need, its one of our biggest strengths. And saying the QB class is underwhelming as a reason to pass on a QB only to have Geno going at 4 seems really ridiculous to me.

I don't think any of those DTs can make the impact that Floyd can outside of Ratliff.

I forgot that the Chiefs had Winston.

with broderick bunkley to play the nose id prefer mingo to play olb but hankins is not a bad pick

49erNation85 01-27-2013 11:55 AM

Great san fran pick!

Pat Sims 90 01-27-2013 12:35 PM

Manti Te'o would be Rey Maualuga 2.0 they need a LB that won't get exposed in the passing game.

RCAChainGang 01-27-2013 01:20 PM

Love this pick. The Colts are in desperate need of a rush linebacker when Freeney is likely gone.

eliasrapp98 01-27-2013 01:27 PM

How many times does Chip Kelly have to say that he'll work with any QB and will change his system before you guys understand it?

thebow305 01-27-2013 01:51 PM

Solid Miami pick

ChicagoBearsVet23 01-27-2013 02:10 PM

Horrible Bears pick. Brown is not a 1st rounder. Te'o, Cooper, Mingo, Eifert, Rhodes, or Minter would be the pick.

gpngc 01-27-2013 03:07 PM

I doubt Seattle takes another guard with McQuistan, Carpenter, Moffit and Sweezy all on the roster. If they go OL, they'd probably take a RT.

And how was the Seahawks OL disappointing. It was fantastic aside from Giacomini, and he didn't play that bad down the stretch either.

Cigaro 01-27-2013 03:38 PM

How does Richardson help our run defense instead of an actual nose tackle in Hankins or Je. Williams? Richardson is a talented defensive tackle, but his talent lies primarily in his athleticism and pass rushing ability, and not in his ability to swallow blockers. We already have a UT, we need a NT.

coordinator0 01-27-2013 04:40 PM

That's probably the best pick Baltimore could make in that situation.

I don't think I'd be happy if Jesse Williams is on the board and they took either of those guys. Williams could be insurance in case Pickett hits the wall and give them some flexibility with where to play Raji. Would give boost to the run defense regardless.

Hurricanes25 01-27-2013 09:10 PM

I'd be very happy with Jarvis Jones to the Jets.

freebirdsrams02 01-27-2013 09:36 PM

I would take that for a Rams draft. Then take. OLB in the 2nd.

Don Vito 01-27-2013 09:52 PM

The Pats need a playmaker on offense and Austin is just that so nice pick. We do need to add some size at wideout too though.

doesn't mean he wants a bad one or wouldn't prefer one who fits his idealized offense.

TonyGfortheTD 01-28-2013 02:40 AM

I think it's pretty clear who the #1 QB is and your logic is baffling.

jayceheathman 01-28-2013 03:10 AM

I would rather the Texans get John Jenkins instead of Williams.

Abaddon 01-28-2013 04:09 AM

I go back and forth on Star. The talent is obviously there, but is the motor? Fatties who take plays off in college tend to do more of the same once they start making that steak & lobster salary.

killxswitch 01-28-2013 11:00 AM

I doubt it'll happen but the Colts would love to be able to draft Mingo.

steelersrock151 01-28-2013 11:54 AM

#1- Luke Joeckle may be the #1 talent in the draft, but unless there's a trade he won't get picked #1. If Geno Smith is good enough to go #4 he's good enough to go #1. And I firmly believe that at least 2 and probably 3 QBs will be picked in the top dozen picks.

#2- Hate the Steeler's pick, primarily because you started it with "I don't think he fits the Steelers defense". If he's not a fit, don't pick him. Really think they will go ILB here, with Te'o, Ogletree, and Mintner still on the board. Which one it will be I'll let them decide.

#3- While its a popular pick, I don't see Tennasee picking a guard at #10, even Womack. He doesn't get nearly the raves DeCastro did last year, and he fell to #24. Maybe a trade back with ST. Louis going for one of the tackles would allow them to take him, but not at #10. IMHO.
