Mike Mayock NFL Draft 2013 Rankings

Chris Graythen

Mike Mayock has released his top five players at every position for the upcoming NFL Draft.

Mike Mayock is another "draft guy" that I really respect. I know he made the allergic to contact comment last year, but he is a guy that is right a lot more than he is wrong. Anyway, he has released his top five players at every positionfor the 2013 NFL Draft.

Let's start with safeties:

1. Kenny Vaccaro, Texas
2. Matt Elam, Florida
3. Johnathan Cyprien, Florida International
4. Eric Reid, LSU
5. Zeke Motta, Notre Dame

There is a lot of love out there for the Cyprien kid. My guess is that all five of these guys will end up being good NFL players, although I need to see more of Motta, which again brings up the point that there really is no reason to take Vaccaro at 10.

The only other list I want to highlight is defensive end*:

1. Bjoern Werner, Florida State
2. Damontre Moore, Texas A&M
3. Ezekiel Ansah, BYU
4. Sam Montgomery, LSU
T-5. Datone Jones, UCLA
T-5. Margus Hunt, SMU

He has Werner at the top of the board, where a lot of people have been sliding Werner down boards recently. All of these guys will be interesting to watch at the combine.

*Barkevious Mingo is not on the list because Mayock lists him as an outside linebacker, but he is only 4th on that list.
