2013 NFL Mock Draft

Round 1 (part 3) of 2

32. (2.1) CLE: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU
Doctson has the size and length to be a No. 1 WR but there isn't a single attribute that really excites me. Might be like a Rueben Randle or Brandon LaFell type that's a solid No. 2 on a good day.
33. (2.2) TEN: Darian Thompson, S, Boise State
Tennessee has some glaring needs and free safety is one of them. A slight reach here but a good fit considering they are trying to make up ground on defense.
34. (2.3) DAL: Robert Nkemdiche, DT, Ole Miss*
The Cowboys already have their fair share of knuckleheads, but they aren't paying these guys to behave. Nkemideche is a first round talent that's likely to slip into the second. If he does slide to Day 2, I think there will be a trade up where someone grabs him.
35. (2.4) SD: Hunter Henry, TE, Arkansas*
On paper, the Chargers need a tight end. But if they really needed one, why let Ladarius Green walk? Henry is the lone TE prospect likely to be taken in the first 30 to 40 picks. He needs to get stronger but his frame can easily support another 10 or 15 pounds of muscle.
36. (2.5) BAL: Mackensie Alexander, CB, Clemson*
Baltimore only forced six INTs while also allowing 30 passing TDs, tied for ninth-most in the NFL. Corner isn't a critical need, yet there's no such thing as too much CB depth. Alexander could be their best CB by Year 2.
37. (2.6) SF: Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech*
Fuller is another player with a varied scouting report thanks to a torn meniscus injury suffered last September. Before that injury, Fuller was in the conversation with the Ramseys and Hargreaves of the world. He is a value pick if he lasts beyond the top 20.
38. (2.7) JAX: Vernon Butler, DT, Louisiana Tech
Not a perfect scheme fit, plus the Jags were actually stout against the run. They only allowed one run play of 40-plus yards. With such a large investment placed in Malik Jackson, the Jags would be wise to build (and therefore draft) around him.
39. (2.8) TB: Deion Jones, OLB, LSU
A touch undersized but in today's NFL, speed and flexibility in coverage are more important. These areas are where Jones can excel. With a little more pop and strength, he could be a career starter at a minimum.
40. (2.9) NYG: Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana
Spriggs' defeciencies mostly come as a run blocker so some teams may not knock him much as the game continues to shift more and more towards the pass. Fluid and balanced blocker. Far from a lock for the top 40. Slight reach here.
41. (2.10) CHI: Karl Joseph, S, West Virginia
Remember when Chicago was known for their defense? Seems like a distant memory. Joseph gives them some pop and reminds me of a young Antrel Rolle, who can work as his mentor, show him the ropes as a strong safety with some free safety coverage abilities.
42. (2.11) MIA: Jonathan Bullard, DE, Florida
Really enjoy his style of play: Energetic from play to play. Nose for the football, always around the ball. At times limited against the run.
43. (2.12) TEN: Vonn Bell, S, Ohio State*
Some view Bell as the best safety prospect in this class so he may not stick around until this slot. Tennessee needs someone on the backend to shut down the passing game. Great cover skills and can disrupt catches at their highpoint despite his just below average height.
44. (2.13) OAK: Shilique Calhoun, DE, Michigan State
Love his pass rush moves and speed on the edge. Right now, I think he's only a two-down player which may hurt his stock. Could also play as a 3-4 OLB.
45. (2.14) TEN: Jihad Ward, DE, Illinois
Seems to have a very wide range of evaluations. Seen him in the top 35 and seen him more towards the top 80. To me, he looks like an intelligent and intuitive player. Great body position and can lean his man back into the pocket.
46. (2.15) DET: Andrew Billings, DT, Baylor*
Everyone loves Ziggy Ansah, but Haloti Ngata isn't getting any younger and the rest of the line is replacement level. Billings looks like the best NT prospect in this class.
47. (2.16) NO: Chris Jones, DT, Mississippi State*
Jones is another player with very stark differences in his evaluations. Very powerful and disruptive when he wants to be. Takes too many plays off. Two-down player to start his career.
