More DS Mocks: Lupagus | Lomas | Ultimate

12. Dolphins – Jonathan Cooper G, UNC

Cooper is a complete guard who excels at both run and pass blocking. Miami has invested heavily in the offense this offseason, shoring up the offensive line early will be a priority. Cooper barley gets the nod over Warmack, but either would be a solid edition.

13. Jets (from Bucs) – Chance Warmack G, Alabama

If the Jets could end up getting Mingo and Warmack in round 1, day 1 would be a huge success. Like Mingo, Warmack fills a big need and would be a huge upgrade along the line. Although I have Warmack as the 6th offensive lineman off the board, he very well could be the best, time will tell.

14. Panthers – Star Lotulelei DT, Utah

Star is one of the biggest wild cards in this years crop, he could go as early as pick 2 or slide to the teens. Carolina obviously needs help up front and I don’t think they would hesitate on getting their card to the podium if Star is on the board at 14.

15. Saints – Jarvis Jones LB, Georgia

This has been a pretty popular pick for the Saints in the past month. Jones would be a perfect fit in the Saints new 3-4 defense, when all is said and done, I think Jones ends up being one of the bigger steals of the 2013 draft.

16. Rams – Kenny Vaccaro S, Texas

Vaccaro is hands down the best safety on my board. Would be an all-out steal at 16, the Rams have a few solid pieces at corner but Vaccaro fills a big at safety for the Rams. St. Louis is closer to people think to being a contender and a guy like Vaccaro could be the missing piece.

17. Steelers – Tyler Eifert TE, Notre Dame

Heath Miller is coming off an injury and is no spring chicken. Eifert is the best tight end in the draft, very solid all-around player, would be a great weapon for Big Ben. Might not be the biggest need, but could pay off huge a year or two down the road.

18. Cowboys – Sheldon Richardson DT, Missouri

With Richardson the Cowboys would be getting the best player on the board and fill a need. With Dallas switching to a 4-3 they will need to add pieces to get this in place. Richardson has the skill to be a top 10 pick, the Cowboys will benefit from a thick defensive tackle class.

19. Giants – Desmond Trufant CB, Washington

Giants have holes to fill all along the defensive side of the ball. I look for them to go best player available, Trufant is an all-around corner that can pretty much do anything you ask of him as a corner.

20. Bears – Alec Ogletree LB, Georgia

I see Ogletree as a boom or bust type of player. Very athletic linebacker who matches up well against the pass, with some fine tuning could be a pro-bowler early in his career. A few off the field issues but still worthy of a top 20 pick.

21. Bengals – Jonathan Cyprien S, Florida International

Mike Zimmer appears to be smitten with the safety out of F.I. Cyrpien has watched his stock sky-rocket in the past 2 months and would be a great fit next to Reggie Nelson in the secondary.

22. Rams (From Redskins) – DeAndre Hopkins WR, Clemson

Rams have not been shy about their love for Hopkins with multiple visits in the past weeks. The Rams have a few good young pieces at the receiver position but still lack that true number 1 receiver at this point.

Your thoughts here
  1. Good pick sir!Kenny is desperately needed because of the age in the Steeler secondary

  2. Good Pick:
    Steelers should draft a Safety, ILB or OLB in the 1st round and the 2 remaining of the 3 in the 2nd and 3rd rounds

  3. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Bengals taking Ogletree with him sitting behind and learning from Thomas Howard for a year or two. If the Bengals could get a 6th defense out of Manny Lawson/Rey Maualuga/Vontaze Burfict, they can certainly manage a year with Lamur (or Joiner)/Burfict/Howard.

  4. DJ Fluker is a horrible pick at 20 because he does not fit. The Bears are fine at RT with Jonathon Scott who played well at the end of the year. Don’t forget Carimi, who was a 1st round pick 2 years ago, and Webb who is better suited for RT. Don’t pigeon whole OT @ pick 20. The offensive line was horrible due to the LT and I don’t see Fluker as an upgrade @ RT.

    • Scott is 30 years old and Carimi has been a let down. My thinking is move Carimi inside to guard and let Fluker battle for a starting job day 1.

    • Fact is, if Fluker was on the Bears roster today he would be there best lineman. I wouldn’t consider that pigeon holing … more of filling a serious need.

  5. I’m hearing the Saints love Tavon Austin will draft him at 15,if he’s there…Could be a Smoke Screen..but Sean Payton loves his offense…anyway i hope the draft Jarvis Jones..but they probally wont
