Complete coverage: 2013 Draft Tracker
|1||B||Chiefs select: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan |
They get the best left tackle in this draft and fill a position of need for the next decade.
|2||B||Jaguars select: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M |
They have Eugene Monroe on one side and now get another top tackle for the right side. Tackle is now a strong area of their team.
|3||C||Dolphins select: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon |
I don't like the move up to get Jordan. He is a solid player, not a great player. That would concern me. This is a panic move.
|4||B-||Eagles select: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma |
They have so many other issues, but he's a good athlete who will be better in the NFL. I like the pick.
|5||A+||Lions select: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Brigham Young |
My favorite pick of the draft. I love Ansah. He is this year's Jason Pierre-Paul. The Lions nailed it.
|6||C-||Browns select: Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU |
Mingo has raw ability, but I just didn't see enough from him last season. I wanted more. And do the Browns have a need there?
|7||B||Cardinals select: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina |
I don't like drafting guards high in the first round, but Cooper fills a need. And he is athletic and can move. He will be a heck of a guard. But it's high for a guard.
|8||B||Rams select: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia |
Austin is one of my favorite players in this draft. I love this kid. It's a league of big plays, and he will provide plenty of them.
|9||D+||Jets select: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama |
The Jets had bigger needs, even with the trade of Darrelle Revis. I guess Kyle Wilson is just a nickel corner. Don't like it.
|10||C-||Titans select: Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama |
I don't like this pick. He's a good player, but they had so many other needs. He will be good for Chris Johnson, but worth this spot?
|11||B||Chargers select: D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama |
The Chargers had to land a tackle, and this makes a lot of sense. I like Fluker. I think he can go to the left side if need be.
|12||A-||Raiders select: D.J. Hayden, CB, Houston |
They trade back and land a premier cover corner. I love this move. They add picks and add a top corner. Nice job, Oakland.
|13||C||Jets select: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri |
Richardson is a heck of a player, but does he fill the need? I love the player, but not for this team. Weird.
|14||A-||Panthers select: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah |
The Panthers hit this one by having Lotulelei fall to them. He fills a major need. I like it.
|15||B||Saints select: Kenny Vaccaro, FS, Texas |
This is a need pick. They had to improve the range on the back end. Vaccaro had a heck of a coverage game against Tavon Austin.
|16||F||Bills select: E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida State |
What the heck are the Bills thinking? Did they watch this kid? He isn't Cam Newton. This is a horrible move.
|17||B+||Steelers select: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia |
The Steelers pick productive defensive players and they did it again. Jones is a good pass rusher and will fill James Harrison's spot. Nice move. Kevin Colbert gets it.
|18||B||49ers select: Eric Reid, FS, LSU |
I like Reid to step in and start right away. This move up is aggressive by a team that could afford it. Solid job.
|19||C||Giants select: Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse |
I don't like this pick by the Giants. I see him more as a guard, and they need a tackle. Jerry Reese is damn good, but this is strange.
|20||C+||Bears select: Kyle Long, OG, Oregon |
Long is a good player, but is he a guard or tackle? I think he slides inside to guard. He is a nasty player.
|21||C||Bengals select: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame |
This pick says enough about Jermaine Gresham as much as anything. Eifert is a much better receiver than Gresham. But what about safety?
|22||B||Falcons select: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington |
Give the Falcons a lot of credit. They wanted Trufant and went out and landed him. They are close and they needed a corner. It works.
|23||A||Vikings select: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida |
I love this move by the Vikings. They needed help inside and they land a player who could have been a top-10 player. It makes sense. Nice job.
|24||B||Colts select: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State |
Werner is a solid player, but what does this say about the signing of Erik Walden? Then again, you can never have enough pass rushers.
|25||A||Vikings select: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State |
I love the pick of Rhodes. He fills an immediate need and can really cover. I love that move.
|26||B+||Packers select: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA |
Ted Thompson always seems to pick good football players. Datone Jones owned the Senior Bowl week. He is a perfect pick for the Packers. He will be a 3-4 end.
|27||B||Texans select: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson |
Hopkins fills a major need. He isn't fast, but he plays fast. A solid pick.
|28||B||Broncos select: Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina |
The pick of Sylvester Williams fills a huge need. He was a power player inside for UNC. I like this move by the Broncos.
|29||B-||Vikings select: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee |
Three picks to draft Patterson is way too much. I like Patterson as a player, but three picks? Wow.
|30||B-||Rams select: Alec Ogletree, OLB, Georgia |
Ogletree has some off-the-field issues, but that doesn't bother the Rams. He had some down games, but he is athletic.
|31||B||Cowboys select: Travis Frederick, C, Wisconsin |
I really like this Frederick pick. They have major issues inside and he can play center or guard.
|32||B+||Ravens select: Matt Elam, SS, Florida |
The Ravens know how to pick good football players. Elam will take over for Ed Reed -- and be better next year. Watch.
