Default November 3rd Mock Draft

My latest effort is below. The mock is based off of the current draft order as of October 31st; I have projected the playoffs myself. Let me know what you think!

November 3rd Mock Draft

1. Kansas City Chiefs - QB Geno Smith, West Virginia

Playing in Dana Holgorsen's Air Raid, Smith has captivated audiences and is widely projected to go first overall in April.

2. Carolina Panthers - DT Star Lotulelei, Utah

Dwan and Ron Edwards are currently starting at defensive tackle in Carolina; Lotulelei recalls Ravens star Haloti Ngata.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars - QB Matt Barkley, Southern California

Barkley is reminiscent of former third overall pick Matt Ryan and would fit perfectly into Mike Mularkey's offensive scheme.

4. Cleveland Browns - LB Jarvis Jones, Georgia*

Jones has drawn comparisons to Von Miller and could take over on for Chris Gocong, who is owed a $4.45m base salary next year.

5. New Orleans Saints - DE Barkevious Mingo, Louisiana St.*

Look no further than Baton Rouge to fix the pass rush; Will Smith won't be around to collect his $10.15m cap figure next year.

6. St. Louis Rams (from Redskins) - OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M*

Joeckel is the most natural left tackle in this year's class; Rodger Saffold would be allowed to slide inside to left guard as rumored.

7. St. Louis Rams - OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan*

At 6'7" and 310 pounds, Lewan plays just like Wolverines alum Jake Long and would complete St. Louis' offensive line rebuild.

8. Tennessee Titans - DE Bjoern Werner, Florida St.*

Kamerion Wimbley is playing well at right end but opposite him the Titans could do better than former first-rounder Derrick Morgan.

9. New York Jets - DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M*

Moore's extensive experience dropping into coverage gives him the slight edge over Sam Montgomery for Rex Ryan's defense.

10. Cincinnati Bengals - DE Sam Montgomery, Louisiana St.*

Michael Johnson is set to become a free agent this offseason; finding a long-term compliment to Carlos Dunlap is necessary.

11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - CB Johnthan Banks, Mississippi St.

Dee Milliner may be the more highly-regarded cornerback prospect, but Banks is the best fit for Tampa Bay's man coverages.

12. San Diego Chargers - DT Johnathan Hankins, Ohio St.*

32 year-old Aubrayo Franklin is playing well in a rotation but shouldn't prevent San Diego from drafting someone like Hankins.

13. Buffalo Bills - CB Dee Milliner, Alabama*

Stephon Gilmore looks like the answer at one cornerback spot, but left cornerback Aaron Williams is starting to look like a bust.

14. Oakland Raiders - QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas

Replacing Carson Palmer should be high on Oakland's wishlist, and they may be willing to reach on Arkansas' Tyler Wilson.

15. Detroit Lions - DE Alex Okafor, Texas

Okafor has seven sacks through eight games and could replace aging, overpaid right end Kyle Vanden Bosch next season.

16. Dallas Cowboys - OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan

Doug Free's massive base salary will not be paid by the Cowboys next season; Fisher is a massive tackle with light feet.

17. Philadelphia Eagles - FS Eric Reid, Louisiana St.*

Nate Allen has settled in at free safety in Philadelphia, but the Eagles need to improve upon strong safety Kurt Coleman.

18. Arizona Cardinals - OG Chance Warmack, Alabama

The Cardinals have ignored their offensive line for too long; right guard Adam Snyder is among Arizona's worst starters.

19. Seattle Seahawks - WR Keenan Allen, California*

Keenan Allen is a steal this late in the draft; his incredible catching radius would make Russell Wilson's life much easier.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers - LB Manti Te'o, Notre Dame

Pittsburgh needs to add another inside linebacker to compliment Lawrence Timmons, and Te'o is an excellent fit and value.

21. Miami Dolphins - WR Robert Woods, Southern California*

Providing Ryan Tannehill with more weapons should be a priority; Woods could remind coach Joe Philbin of Greg Jennings.

22. Indianapolis Colts - DT Jesse Williams, Alabama

Indianapolis' defensive line has been its weak point thus far; Williams could replace Cory Redding or Antonio Johnson.

23. Green Bay Packers - OL Barrett Jones, Alabama

37 year-old center Jeff Saturday has failed to get a push in the run game; Jones has lined up at center, at guard, and at tackle.

24. Minnesota Vikings - WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee*

Sidney Rice's departure left a hole opposite Percy Harvin that Minnesota has yet to fill; Hunter is a similar type of player.

25. Denver Broncos - DE Dion Jordan, Oregon

Jordan must add bulk to his frame, but would eventually allow Derek Wolfe to slide inside to his natural spot at defensive tackle.

26. New England Patriots - FS T.J. McDonald, Southern California

Patrick Chung is set to become a free agent and has been unable to stay healthy; Tavon Wilson may be a better fit at strong safety.

27. New York Giants - LB C.J. Mosley, Alabama*

The Giants appear to be on the verge of a major defensive rebuild; they can start by adding a young, versatile linebacker.

28. Chicago Bears - TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame*

Starting tight end Kellen Davis has just 144 receiving yards through seven games; a dynamic receiver like Eifert would help.

29. Baltimore Ravens - DT John Jenkins, Georgia

The Terrence Cody/Ma'ake Kemoeatu nose tackle platoon has been one of Baltimore's primary weaknesses this season.

30. San Francisco 49ers - CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida St.*

Carlos Rogers' $5.5m base salary makes him a potential cap casualty this offseason; Rhodes is talented enough to compete right away.

31. Houston Texans - OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M*

Previously considered the best unit in the league, Houston's line must compensate for the loss of right tackle Eric Winston.

32. Atlanta Falcons - DT Kawann Short, Purdue

Jonathan Babineaux has an excessive $4.7m cap figure in 2013; drafting a well-rounded defensive tackle like Short would be wise.

Also considered: Jonathan Cooper, Sharrif Floyd, Chase Thomas
