Verge's newest mock draft
Posted 14 March 2013 - 10:01 PM
Luke Joeckel, T, TA&M
Obvious pick is obvious.
Dion Jordan, DE, ORE
Speed, speed, speed, Jags need pass rush, Jordan fits the bill.
Geno Smith, QB, WV
Raiders need a QB and Geno is one of the best in the draft class, his speed and arm talent make it easy for the Raiders to attain their first franchise QB since Rich Gannon
Dee Milliner, CB, AL
The Eagles are desperate for corners now that Nmandi and DRC are gone, Milliner dominated the combine and is the single best CB prospect I have seen in the past five years.
Ezekial Ansah, DE, BYU
Freak of nature, Julius Peppers like potential. Lions need a pass rusher, he is not the best on the board, but the ceiling is oh so high.
More pass rush! The Browns make a killer move that give them a real shot at competing for the division. Sheard, Floyd, and Kruger? Amazing Dline.
The Cardinals really, really like Barkley, I don't quite understand it, but this pick won't be anything but Barkley.
Great qb, and the Bills need a qb and Manuel fits the bill (Hue hue hue). I love Manuel as a prospect and he will make the Bills able to compete in the division
The Jets biggest need is offense, and they get the best offensive play maker in the draft, no thinking about this one.
Xavier Rhodes, CB, FSU
Titans biggest need is CB, they take the best one available
Eric Fisher, T, CM
The Chargers prayers work out and they land a top 5 player and fix their biggest need
Lane Johnson, T, OK
Dolphins get an elite pass protector to protect their franchise qb. Johnson has the highest ceiling out of any tackle in the draft and he will be awesome for them
Jarvis Jones, OLB/DE, GEO
Sick pass rusher falls due to health concerns and Bucs get a steal here
Tavon Austin, WR, WV
The biggest play maker in the draft and the future of the franchise at WR. They could go Richardson here as well, but I just think WR is a huge need that they have neglected early. Cam Newton is the most important person on the team, so improve his production with a dangerous weapon
Bjoern Werner, DE, FSU
In my opinion, the best DE in the draft, the Saints get a steal here and get a guy with a high motor that will be an elite pass rusher
Kenny Vaccaro, S, TX
Hard to see the Rams passing up the best safety in the draft, they have needs at WR as well, but the top two are off the board
Jamie Collins, OLB, SM
They need to replace Harrison, and Collins is the best OLB on the board
Chance Warmack, G, ALA
Best guard in the draft gives the Cowboys a guard for Murray to lean on
Star Loutuleilei, DT, UT
He is falling due to health concerns, Giants like to take players that drop and reap the rewards. This will certainly be the case for Star
Menelik Watson, T, FSU
Best tackle on the board improves the much needed position for the Bears
Keenan Allen, WR, CAL
The best player on the board and a huge increase to the talent level to the now loaded Bengals
Jonathan Cooper, G, NC
They fix their interior line right out of the gate, it is amazing he fell this far and the Rams look to be a contender with two solid picks
Sheldon Richardson, DT, MISS
Huge fall here, I imagine someone will trade up earlier to get Richardson, but in this case he falls to the Vikings and they hop on board
Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU
They need a pass rusher and Mingo is sitting here waiting for a 3-4 team to take him. Easy pick
Quinton Patton, WR, LT
They need another receiver to help Greg Jennings, Patton fits the need
Eddie Lacey, RB, Ala
I imagine they will trade back here, but if not, they need a RB
Damontre Moore, OLB, TA&M
Connor Barwin leaves? Cool with them, just go get an even better pass rusher. The Texans are good with this kind of thing
Jonathan Cyprien, S, FI
The safety play was the only thing average about the Broncos last year, and with this pick they become stacked at the position for the future. Hopefully Rahim Moore can improve for the future. The Broncos can really go anywhere here, they are stacked. This also could be Desmond Trufant or Tyler Eifert
Sylvester Williams, DT, NC
Best player available, the Patriots do their thing
Margus Hunt, DE, SMU
Huge upside, the Falcons can afford to take a boom or bust pick here
Desmond Trufant, CB, WAS
Alec Ogletree, LB, GEO
The Ravens need some LB help and Ogletree is the best one on the board

This is a terrible mock. There is no way 3 QBs get taken in the top 10. Also, Fisher won't make it out of the top 10. Tavon Austin is not at all worth the 14th pick. I would much rather take Star or Trufant there.
I am not not sure if three qbs will go in the top 10 either, I know two will, but the Bills could probably trade back to get Manuel. No chance they take anyone but a qb though. Trufant is to high at 14.
