2013 NFL Mock Draft
Round 1 (part 2) of 1
The Ravens desperately need to get their 120 million dollar man some weapons. After using last years draft to replace the loss of veterans on the defensive side of the ball, they seemed to never really recover from the loss of Anquan Boldin. Granted losing Dennis Pitta didn't help, never the less, the Ravens have to take a pass catcher in this spot and although he did not have a very good combine, the game tape speaks for itself and he best fits the role of big body pass catcher they will be looking to fill.
The Jets need help at WR and CB, Odell Beckham has had a great offseason and his stock has risen more than any other receiver in the draft. If he goes earlier the Jets could go CB, but Beckham is just too tempting to pass on, especially considering the offensive issues the Jets have had in recent seasons. Some say Beckham is the second best receiver in this draft.
He is extremely versatile and the Dolphins should be praying he drops to them. He has been getting a lot of attention building up to the draft though. He may not make it this far.
In most divisions Arizona probably would be the best team or at least in contention. Arizona has two issues, they can't run and their QB is completely immobile. Carson Palmer brings flashbacks of an aging Drew Bledsoe. A potential star O-Lineman just seems to be the best fit and obvious choice for the Cards.
The Packers will keep piling up offensive weapons. They are built much like Peyton Manning's teams. With Jermichael Finley's future is serious doubt, they will go out and get Rodgers a new tight end and hope they can beat teams 52-48 and win the turnover battle. With another weapon like Amaro, they might do just that.
Philly desperately needs a toughness on D that can help in the middle of the field. They have quite a few needs on D, but really need a physical presence and a man, any man, that can hit and tackle somebody, anybody.
Cooks has as much potential as any receiver in this draft. Kansas City needs WR help and they can't pass on his talent.
Assuming you believe in Andy Dalton the Bengals have all the young pieces needed on offense. So why not add a great playmaker to your frontline? They have a talented D but injuries devastated them last season. Ealy was a monster in college. When he wasn't getting penetration it was usually because he was sucking up double teams. After Clowney he's the best DE in this draft and I believe should be drafted much higher than he will be.
Chargers most pressing need is at corner. The Chargers will be thrilled if Fuller falls to them at 24. He could be a major addition to help San Diego try to get back atop the AFC West.
Bridgewater is a steal at 26. I believe he's the best QB in this draft, and if he is, LOOK OUT. If the Browns can add Hyde in the 2nd round, that will be one talented young offense for years to come. But don't get too ahead of yourself, they're still the Browns.
If Mosley falls this far, he is the perfect replacement for Jon Vilma.
Cam Newton has ascended to super star level this year. But with aging, underachieving weapons on offense, and releasing their entire receiving core they have to get him a reliable weapon and potential playmaker. I'm not high on Lee but he has the most potential of any WR still left at this spot.
With Hernandez spending his foreseeable future in prison and Gronk's health a major issue, New England needs a TE. They love them, they utilize them great, and Seferian-Jenkins fits the Patriot mold. He had a down year but is great value at 29. Don't be surprised to see him become a star with Brady throwing him passes.
If there is one weakness on the 9ers high powered Defense its at the Corner position, especially after big losses in free agency. They also need WR help but after losing key players at an already weak position, they have to grab a corner.
Peyton has been nothing short of great with the Broncos, aside from that Super Bowl debacle last season. Still he is old, immobile, and has had serious health issues. When you have Peyton Manning your top priority has to be to protect him. If he goes down they go from Super Bowl contender to sub 500.
The only place you can find a minor flaw in Seattle is their pass catchers. With Harvin and Rice's health an issue they could use some WR depth. Robinson is a solid fundamentally sound WR and would be a good fit in Seattle.
