April 15th Mock Draft

I bring you my weekly Mock Draft, bright and early, every Monday. The top of the draft is trench heavy in this revision. The rest of the round is loaded with wide-receivers. Meanwhile, one highly rated defensive back falls into the early 20′s.

Offensive prospect smokescreens in KC? Star is healthy and ready to go #1.

1. Kansas CityStar Lotulelei, DTUtah 

While in Philadelphia, Andy Reid selected only 2 offensive linemen with his top 3 picks in each of the past 7 drafts. With Star’s “heart condition” cleared up, he re-assumes his position dominance as this drafts best defensive player.

2. JacksonvilleDion Jordan, OLBOregon

Gus Bradely will look to upgrade the pass rush which was so integral to the Seahawks defensive success. Jordan will provide Jacksonville with an immediate play-maker; he may be the only one they have!

3. OaklandShariff Floyd, DTFlorida (scouting report)

Oakland needs help just about everywhere on the defensive side of the ball. So, they start with the defensive line. Floyd will provide them with a physical and imposing presence on a drained D-Line.

4. PhiladelphiaGeno Smith, QBWest Virginia 

Geno may not be worthy of a top 5 selection in most draft classes, but this pick ensures the Eagles have an athletically gifted QB to groom under Mike Vick for the immediate future.

5. DetroitLuke Joeckel, OTTexas A&M

The Lions manage to “steal” Joekcel and Matt Stafford instantly becomes the happiest man in the NFL. The Lions have been in desperate need of offensive line help his entire career.

6. ClevelandDee Milliner, CBAlabama

Outside of Joe Haden, Cleveland doesn’t have a great secondary. They’re going to need all the help they can get stopping the pass, especially if the rumors of a Jabaal Sheard trade are true.

7. ArizonaEric Fisher, OT - Central Michigan

Palmer is a traditional pocket QB and if the Cardinals do not acquire an “elite” offensive lineman there won’t be much of a pocket for Palmer to stand in.

8. BuffaloTavon Austin, WRWest Virginia

The Bills have mentioned they plan to acquire a play-making receiver this off-season and thus far have not been able to do so. Tavon Austin can score from anywhere on the field, and has.

9. New York JetsZiggy Ansah, DEBYU

Revis Island has yet to be traded. At this point, Rex Ryan and his new GM have the opportunity to further diversify their defensive scheming ability and improve the pass rush with the naturally gifted defensive end from Ghana.

10. Tennessee - Jonathan Cooper, OGNorth Carolina

Cooper is one of the best athletes at the guard position that has come into the NFL in many years. He also provides Tennessee with line flexibility because he can play center as well.

11. San DiegoLane Johnson, OTOklahoma

Johnson will help this San Diego offense get back to a level of efficient production feared by protecting Rivers.

12. Miami - Chance Warmack, OGAlabama

This is an easy pick for Miami. They selected their franchise QB in Ryan Tannehill last year and signed Mike Wallace to a giant contract this offseason, now they help provide the push up front by picking up a mauler in Chance Warmack.

13. Tampa BayXavier Rhodes, CBFlorida State

The Buccaneers are trying to acquire Revis but have thus far been unsuccessful in doing so. Tampa’s best option to upgrade their pass defense would be to follow in the footsteps of Seattle and select this long and aggressive press man corner.
