Mock draft No. 8: DT Lotulelei moves up to No. 4 overall
With a week to go before the 2013 NFL Draft, Pete Prisco moves Star Lotulelei up to the No. 4 spot on his latest mock, sending him to the Eagles.
1. Kansas City Chiefs -- Eric Fisher , T, Central Michigan: He stays in the top spot with a week to go.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars -- Dion Jordan , DE, Oregon: His speed is something this team sorely lacks.
3. Oakland Raiders -- Sharrif Floyd , DT, Florida: They have to get better inside and this kid can help.
4. Philadelphia Eagles -- Star Lotulelei , DT, Utah: Big, fast, strong and tough. He would be a great fit in the middle.
5. Detroit Lions -- Luke Joeckel , T, Texas A&M: They will be thrilled if he falls to them here.
6. Cleveland Browns -- Xavier Rhodes , CB, Florida State: They could pair him with Joe Haden to form a nice tandem.
7. Arizona Cardinals -- Lane Johnson , T, Oklahoma: They have Carson Palmer . Now they have to get somebody to protect him.
8. Buffalo Bills -- Geno Smith , QB, West Virginia: Somebody has to play the position, so Smith makes sense.
9. New York Jets -- Barkevious Mingo , DE, LSU: Where do they get the pass rush? He would help.
10. Tennessee Titans -- Ezekiel Ansah , DE, BYU: They have to improve their outside pass rush. This kid is raw but makes sense.
11. San Diego Chargers - - Jarvis Jones , OLB, Georgia: The pass rush needs help and this kid made a ton of plays.
12. Miami Dolphins -- Dee Milliner , CB, Alabama: Who plays corner in Miami now? This would make sense.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - - Desmond Trufant , CB, Washington: They have to get somebody to play corner and a young one makes sense even if they get Darrelle Revis .
14. Carolina Panthers -- Sheldon Richardson , DT, Missouri: They have a big hole in the middle of their defense and Richardson can help plug it.
15. New Orleans Saints -- Menelik Watson , T, Florida State: He would step in on the left side for the departed Jermon Bushrod .
16. St. Louis Rams -- Tavon Austin , WR, West Virginia: What a dimension he would add to the offense.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Jamar Taylor , CB, Boise State: They can’t possibly play with William Gay , can they?
18. Dallas Cowboys -- Chance Warmack , G, Alabama: They have to get better inside. Warmack is a mauler. So he stays in this spot.
19. New York Giants -- D.J. Fluker , T, Alabama: They need help there in the worst way.
20. Chicago Bears -- Jonathan Cooper , G, North Carolina: All of sudden their line is a strong point if they were to get this kid.
21. Cincinnati Bengals -- Kenny Vaccaro , S, Texas: They need more range from the back end.
22. St. Louis Rams (From Washington Redskins ) -- Johnathan Cyprien , S, FIU: They have to get help in the back of that defense.
23. Minnesota Vikings -- Datone Jones , DE, UCLA: Jared Allen can't play forever, and this kid has a ton of talent.
24. Indianapolis Colts -- Cordarrelle Patterson , WR, Tennessee: Reggie Wayne isn't a kid anymore. They need help. Darius Heyward-Bey is a stopgap.
25. Minnesota Vikings (From Seattle Seahawks ) -- Arthur Brown , LB, Kansas State: It never hurts to get a speedy linebacker.
26. Green Bay Packers -- Sylvester Williams , DT, North Carolina: They have to get better inside against the run.
27. Houston Texans -- DeAndre Hopkins , WR, Clemson: He isn't a burner, but he knows how to get open.
28. Denver Broncos - - Jesse Williams , DT, Alabama: They need to improve in a big way in the middle of their defense.
29. New England Patriots -- Bjoern Werner , DE, Florida State: Doesn't he look like a Bill Belichick-type of player?
30. Atlanta Falcons -- D.J. Hayden , CB, Houston: He has good size and he can run and cover. That's what the Falcons need.
31. San Francisco 49ers -- Matt Elam , S, Florida: They need a young safety to step in for the departed Dashon Goldson .
32. Baltimore Ravens -- Justin Hunter , WR, Tennessee: They get a replacement for Anquan Boldin .
