My first mock draft...
My first mock draft... 3/3/13@3:16 a.m.

...for the upcoming NFL draft, complete with trades and FA assumptions. This will no doubt change over the next couple of weeks once FA is completed, so enjoy my first mock of the year:

1) KC - Chance Warmack, G, Alabama - Andy Reid is now running the show, and he NEVER drafts for need…he ALWAYS drafts BPA, and Warmack is the best player in this draft.

2) Lions - Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama - Jacksonville would prefer a pass rushing DE here but none of them in this draft are worth the #2 overall pick, so they trade down with the Lions, who covet Milliner, but know the Raiders will take him if they don't make a move.

3) Raiders - Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida - Bummed that they didn't get Milliner, Oakland doesn't really cry much, taking the best DT in the draft, seeing as how they need defensive help EVERYWHERE.

4) Eagles - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M - Philly needs tackles in the worst way, and they are ecstatic the best LT in the draft falls to them.

5) Jags - Ezekial Ansah, DE, BYU - He's raw, but Jacksonville can't pass up this guy's freaky athleticism.

6) Browns - Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU - Mingo will switch to OLB in Cleveland's new 3-4 defense, and be the pass rushing weakside backer they need.

7) Cards - Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia - Zona needs a QB, and they take the best one in the draft.

8) Bills - Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee - Buffalo needs a receiver to pair with Johnson, and they take the top wideout in the draft.

9) Jets - Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M - NY loves to draft bust DE's with their first round pick, and they continue their stupidity again this year.

10) Titans - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan - Tennessee needs O-line, and they take the BPA.

11) Bolts - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma - see Titans.

12) Rams - Keenan Allen, WR, Cal - Dolphins want Rhodes, but believe they can trade back and get him later and pick up another pick. Rams want Allen, but know he won't get past the Panthers.

13) Jets - D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama - In the Darrelle Revis trade with Tampa, NY uses their first pick from that trade on a RT they so desperately need for Ryan's ground and pound philosophy.

14) Panthers - Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah - Carolina would prefer a WR here, but the only ones with a 1st round grade are gone. They also need DT, and they take the heart risk guy, and count themselves LUCKY.

15) Saints - Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas - New Orleans has been looking to find the next Sharper, and there is a shortage of quality safeties in this draft, so they take the BPA at that position.

16) Rams - Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State - St. Louis got their WR with their first pick, and follow up with another offensive need.

17) Steelers, Jonathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State - Hampton is getting old, and Pittsburgh likes to draft juniors with their first pick.

18) Pokes - Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina - Dallas needs O-line help just about everywhere, so they take the BPA that fits that need.

19) G-men - Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State - Osi won't be back, so NY replaces him with the best pass rusher available.

20) Bears - Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame - Chicago needs O-line help too, but there aren't any left worth taking in the 1st round, so they take another area of dire need.

21) Bangles - Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia - Lewis can teach the troubled Ogletree how to be a pro, and he's the kind of athelete Lewis likes. Perfect fit.

22) Phins - Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State - Miami gets their man and another 2nd round pick. Great job by the often maligned Ireland.

23) Vikes - Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington - Minnesota has a lot of needs. They would prefer a WR here, but all the 1st round grade ones are long gone, so they go BPA at another position of need for them.

24) Colts - Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon - Indy needs O-line the most, but all the 1st round graded ones are gone. Freeny won't be back, and Mathis isn't getting any younger, so they go with their next position of need.

25) Hawks - Alex Okafor, DE, Texas - Seattle has no pass rush, so they fix that problem here.

26) Packers - Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford - Finley won't take a pay cut or restructure, so GB will cut him, and replace him with BPA at that position.

27) Texans - Matt Elam, S, Florida - Quin will be lost in FA, so Houston replaces him here.

28) Ponies - Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri - Denver needs inside pass rush, and the quick disruptive Richardson fits the bill perfectly.

29) Cheats - David Amerson, CB, N.C. State - N.E. needs secondary help, Amerson's combine was good, and Bellicheat wants to improve his pass defense.

30) Falcons - Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama - Turner won't be back, and Atlanta doesn't have an elite alternative, so they fix that here.

31) SF - Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia - NT Sopoaga won't be back, so the Niners need to replace him.

32) Ravens - Barrett Jones, C, Alabama - Harbaugh was not pleased with what he saw at the combine for ILB's, so he goes with another position of need, and takes the versatile Jones, who can play any position on the line.


I root for Miami and anybody that plays the cheats, Jets and the Crimson Tide!
