Two Round Mock Draft - With 7 Round Titan Selections

  1. Round 1
  2. 1. Kansas City Chiefs - Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia In my early January mock draft I had Joeckel in this spot when hardly anyone else did. Now that everyone is putting Joeckel here I have moved in the other direction. The Chiefs could very well take the best OT here but just ask the Dolphins if their #1 selection of All-Pro Jake Long brought them a Superbowl, let alone multiple playoff appearances. QB's take teams to the playoffs. And with the new CBA agreement its worth the risk for the Chiefs to take their first QB in the 1st round since 1983. Smith may not be the top ranked prospect but I believe he will start to separate himself from the rest of the QB class. he definitely has guady stats: '11 - 4385yds,66%, 31 TDs, 7 ints; '12 - 4205yds, 71%, 42 TDs, 6 ints. Geno has size, arm strength and accuracy. He can throw with anticipation, keeps the turnover ratio low, can extend the play with his mobility, is a film junkie and intelligent; he learned the spread and pro-style offense.
  3. 2. Jacksonville Jaguars - Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M The Jags were horrible against the run and need help across their DL and adding Moore will help tremendously. Moore, at 6"4" & 248, accomplished the rare feat of leading his team in tackles (80), tackles for loss (20) and sacks (12.5) through the regular season.
  4. 3. Oakland Raiders - Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State The Raiders need some serious help getting at the QB as they ranked 31st in the league with only 25 sacks. Werner brings an athletic, physical presence against both the run and pass. Werner closed his career with 35 tackles for loss, 23.5 sacks, 18 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in just two seasons.
  5. 4. Philadelphia Eagles - Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia Barring any major health concerns Jones will be a top 5 pick. He is a natural rush OLB in the 3-4. As a guy who played and flourished as an OLB in a 3-4, he'd be a pretty easy fit as the Eagles look to transition to that front. He is a disruptive force and the Eagles need a playmaker on defense. He is a three down player, plays well in coverage with good sideline to sideline speed and wraps up well when tackling. The 6-3, 241-pound Jones led the country in three critical statistics -- sacks (14.5), tackles for loss (24.5) and forced fumbles (seven) despite missing two games due to injury.
  6. 5. Detroit Lions - Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon Cliff Avril was franchised after turning down a 3 year 30 million deal, he will most likely walk and his back up, Lawrence Jackson is also eligible for free agency. KVB is getting old and had a down year and may not be back. Jordan is 6'6" and 250 pounds and can get to the QB and is good in coverage. Long and athletic frame provides him with good versatility to line up in multiple roles and has a quick first step allowing him to get to the edge.
  7. 6. Cleveland Browns - Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama With four solid pass rushers off the board the Browns grab the #1 ranked CB who can partner up with Hayden to create a real solid secondary. Milliner is a lockdown corner who plays well in coverage and against the run. Milliner plays with intensity and does not shy away from contact, and plays with a focused intensity. He is not an interception machine but he does break up a lot of passes. He recognizes and plays the routes naturally.
  8. 7. Arizona Cardinals - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M The Card desperately need a QB but are willing to wait when the top LT falls to them at 7. They could lock up this big position of need for years and grab their QB later. Joeckel is the consensus premiere tackle in this draft.
  9. 8. Buffalo Bills - Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas Bills GM said he wanted a QB. And reaching for a QB early has definitely been a trend due to the positional value. No QB has really separated himself yet in the process so trying to predict who that reach will be is bit a of a crap shoot. Wilson was the more impressive QB during senior week. Clearly, the Bobby Petrino scandal didn’t do any favors for Wilson’s draft stock but he showed the moxie to battle through a new coaching staff and lack of weapons around him. Wilson had his best collegiate season in 2011 under former head coach Bobby Petrino. The junior completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,638 yards, 24 touchdowns and six interceptions. He improved as the season progressed and received good preparation for the pro game. This year he completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,387 yards, 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this year. Of course this pick depends on free agency as well, the Bills have reported to be one of a few teams interested in the 49ers Alex Smith per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
  10. 9. New York Jets - Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU The Jets only recorded 30 sacks; tied for 27th in the league and with the 6’5, 275lb Ezekiel Ansah that stat line could really improve. He is definitely raw but his ceiling is very high and that was put on display during senior week as his stock rose significantly. He was an unstoppable force, pushing past and through offensive lineman putting pressure on the QB and limiting RB’s to short runs and stripping QB Nassib of the ball. He fits in both the 4-3 or 3-4. Ansah played outside linebacker in BYU's 3-4, so he would obviously fit the latter scheme.
  11. 10. Tennessee Titans - Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama The Titans have needed an upgrade at guard for a couple years now. They have three about to hit free agency. Harris and Amano are putrid. The FO has finally admitted to needing to upgrade the line after not addressing it in the draft last year. Does this mean they will take one this high? They do tend to place stock on athleticism over need, but in this case, this might be the perfect marriage of athleticism and need. Warmack is considerably lighter on his feet than one would expect given his stout frame, 6'3", 322, and is adept at meeting and eliminating linebackers at the second level. Warmack would be a tremendous help in opening up lanes for CJ and protecting Locker. Matt Miller includes Chance Warmack on his list of top athletic players in the draft and this to say about him; " Warmack single-handedly set the tone for the national championship game by smacking Manti Te’o in the mouth over and over again in the first quarter. Warmack took out the Heisman candidate and wore him down to a point where he stopped trying to fill gaps and stop the run."

  12. 11. San Diego Chargers - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan The Chargers have questions at both tackle spots and while they hope Jared Gaither is part of the solution, his durability remains to be a concern. The 6'7" 298 lb Eric Fisher played himself into the top half of the first round during senior week. He would fill a big need for the Chargers & help keep Rivers upright.
  13. 12. Miami Dolphins - Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah Remarkably athletic at 6-3, 320 pounds, he's capable of shutting down running lanes and terrorizing quarterbacks The Dolphins have some greater needs but can't pass up on the value of having a top ten talent fall to them due to some consistency concerns but when he is running all cylinders he is a force of nature. He would definitely eat up blockers and free up Wake to do more damage in the backfield. Lotulelei finished the season with 42 tackles, including a team-high 11 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks despite seeing double teams. The senior also had four pass breakups, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.
  14. 13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State The 6’2" 185 CB could come in right away to help the Tampa Bay secondary. The Bucs are dead last in the league in passing yards allowed and Barron needs some help back there. Banks' best attributes are his physical style of play and exceptional instinct, & he’s a proven ball hawk.
  15. 14. Carolina Panthers - Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri The Panthers need someone to plug the running lanes on their porous defensive line. Sheldon Richardson, in only 12 games, had 39 Tackles, 36 Assists, 10.5 Tackles for Loss, 3 Forced Fumbles, and 2 Recovered Fumbles in 2012 playing in the SEC. He would bring fire to the interior line, a thick trunk built for run stopping, closing speed, and flexibility to reach the ball carrier before they even make the line of scrimmage. Richardson could easily be the fastest DT in the NFL the day he steps on the field.
  16. 15. New Orleans Saints - Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State The Saints need all the help they can get on the defensive side of the ball. And 6’3", 330, Hankins would fit nicely in their upcoming switch to the 3-4. Cameron Jordan on one side with Hicks kicked out to the other. When a defensive tackle is good, teams stop running in his direction. For Ohio State's Johnathan Hankins, that was often the case in 2012. He was second on the team in tackles in 2011 with 67 and had 55 as a junior while facing double teams.
  17. 16. St. Louis Rams - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma For Sam Bradford to get back on track the front office will need to add blockers to protect him. With prototypical size for a tackle prospect, Johnson has the arm length to keep defenders out of his body with a strong initial punch. His athleticism comes into play when Johnson is run blocking. He always finds a way to get to the second level of the defense in a hurry and engage in a block quickly.
  18. 17. Pittsburgh Steelers - Alec Ogletree, OLB, Georgia Ogletree is a beast. He led Georgia in tackles by 13 even though he missed four games. He has great instincts and flies to the ball all over the field. Able to attack gaps against the run, stretches wide and moves well in coverage and reads passers well. The junior was suspended the first four games of this season. He had 111 tackles, 11.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, one interception and five passes broken up after returning to the lineup. Ogletree is very fast and instinctive. He has the frame to get bigger and stay as a middle linebacker in the NFL. Ogletree has a high ceiling.
  19. 18. Dallas Cowboys - Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU The 6'5" 250lb DE with defensive end is the 6th ranked prospect on ESPN's big board. And he could come in right away to help in the new 4-3 scheme that Kiffin is planning on installing. Having another pass rush opposite Ware would be ideal. Of the many quality pass-rushers available in this year's draft class, Mingo has the most explosive first step. His acceleration is among the elite.
  20. 19. New York Giants - Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State The Giants secondary's shelf is bare & Rhodes is one of the most physical cornerback prospects at the college level, routinely pressing at the line of scrimmage. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 217 pounds, he has the length and aggressive nature to match up well with bigger receivers at the next level. Rhodes is still a little rough around the edges and tends to get too physical in man coverage, but the physical tools will be extremely appealing to NFL teams on draft day.
  21. 20. Chicago Bears - Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina The new regime starts things off right by adding highly rated guard that will help hold down the line for Cutler. The 6’3" 295lb four year starter has a unique blend of strength & athleticism. He uses his hands well in pass protection and has the ability to move to the next level in run blocking.
  22. 21. Cincinnati Bengals - Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas Bengals need some help in the secondary and the safety spot specifically. Vaccaro can lay the wood, & cover like a cornerback. At 6’1" – 220 he has the size combined with athleticism teams are looking for. The thing that stands out the most about Vaccaro is his instincts. He does a good job of staying around the ball in the passing attack and ground game.
  23. 22. St. Louis Rams - Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina Giovani Bernard is the best all-around running back in the 2013 Draft. Bernard was the heart and soul of a North Carolina offense that broke records over the past 2 seasons. Rushing for 1228 yards and 17 TDs with a 6.7 yards per carry average, Bernard also had 47 receptions for 490 yards and 5 TDs while also being the nation's leading punt returner. Stephan Jackson has 1 year left on his contract worth 7 million. He is also turning 30, which is getting up there for a RB.
  24. 23. Minnesota Vikings - Keenan Allen, WR, California The Vikings need a deep threat for Ponder and would be happy to take the current top wideout on the big board. Keenan Allen checks in as the best wide receiver in the 2013 NFL Draft. His body of work is more complete than any other player at his position. He has the production, athleticism and physicality to be a prototypical No. 1 wide receiver in the NFL.
  25. 24. Indianapolis Colts - John Jenkins, DT, Georgia At 6'3" and 351 lbs., Jenkins has the potential to be a nose tackle in 3-4 schemes and a legitimate two-down 4-3 defensive tackle. Williams had a good performance at practice during senior week. He is a big time space eater that can occupy multiple blockers and collapse the pocket through the middle. Jenkins was one of the most dominant players at the 2013 Senior Bowl. He was tremendous as a run-stuffer and a pocket destroyer as a pass-rusher. None of the centers could block him when he lined up over their head.
  26. 25. Seattle Seahawks - Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee It’s been 10 years since the Seahawks have taken a WR in the first round. Value & talent meets need when Patterson is still available. It is amazing Russell Wilson was able to do so well without a true number one receiver. Patterson is 6’3" and fast. He is perhaps the most dynamic playmaker in this whole draft. He will truly impress in the combine & may not be available at 28. He was the first NCAA player since 2008 to record a touchdown four different ways in the same season. Patterson set an SEC single-season record with a combined kickoff and punt return average of 27.6 yards, and set a Tennessee record with 1,858 all-purpose yards.
  27. 26. Green Bay Packers - Barrett Jones, C, Alabama Jeff Saturday was voted to the Pro Bowl despite being benched in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith. The center position desperately needs to be upgraded. It would be an understatement to say that Barrett Jones is smart and versatile. He could actually start at any of the five positions on the offensive line in the NFL. Whether at tackle, guard or center, Jones has demonstrated that he's dependable against the elite competition in college football. Head coach Nick Saban has said on many occasions that Jones is one of the top players he's ever been around and has compared the 2011 Outland Trophy (nation's top interior lineman) to Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews.
  28. 27. Houston Texans - Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU Bradie James is not the answer next to Brian Cushing. Neither are Darryl Sharpton or Tim Dobbins. He could get off blocks more quickly at times, but Minter is a tackling machine who's capable of playing from sideline to sideline. Minter, who proved to be a revelation in 2012 and had 130 tackles and 15 TFL.
  29. 28. Denver Broncos - Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina Williams' standout showing at the Senior Bowl backed up a strong regular season, when he played faster than ever after shedding weight and getting fully healthy. He has the power to press blockers into the backfield, pop at the point of attack as a tackler, and instincts and quick hands to get off blocks.
  30. 29. New England Patriots - Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington Aqib Talib was a great mid-season acquisition, but as witnessed in the AFC Championship, the New England secondary looked inept without him & Talib is about to hit the free-agent market. Kyle Arrington is also an impending FA & rookie CB Dennard has a court date next month. If one or both FA’s do not get resigned I could definitely see the Patriots going CB with their first pick. Trufant improved his stock during senior week. Trufant really excels in coverage, showing excellent instincts and the ability to quickly recognize routes. Stays in great position in zone coverage and possesses enough size and height to hold up in man and does great at breaking up the pass.
  31. 30. Atlanta Falcons - Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU The Falcons need to find an edge-rusher to replace John Abraham. Montgomery is not as athletic as his teammate Mingo, but his power as a pass-rusher stands out, and he holds the point well against the run. Montgomery was a leader of the Tigers' fierce defensive line. He racked up 37 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, eight sacks and two forced fumbles this season; slightly behind his 2011 totals of 49 tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss, nine sacks and one forced fumble.
    1. 31. San Francisco 49ers - Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama Jesse Williams is just what the doctor ordered for run stopping help. The 6'3", 320 DT could occupy blockers to open lanes for other teammates to do their thing. Per CBS Sports: "Has a naturally wide frame with relatively short limbs, giving him the low center of gravity conducive to holding up at the point of attack. He possesses unbelievable weight-room strength (600 pound bench press) that translates well onto the football field due to his use of leverage and surprisingly good technique considering the fact that he's a relative neophyte who only took up the game at age 15 and has played just four seasons of football in the United States."
      1. 32. Baltimore Ravens - Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame Ray Lewis is about to do his last dance and the Ravens have reported to be interested in Manti Te’o, if that’s his real name, fake girlfriend and poor NC game aside, Te’o still has an impressive body of work. He is a dynamic leader who plays with passion and can captain the defense. Displays very good range for his size. Covers sideline-to-sideline. And can be a thumper of a hitter & is a strong, reliable and fundamentally sound tackler.


  32. Round 2
  33. 33. Jacksonville Jaguars - Matt Barkley, QB, Southern California The Jags grab Barkley with the first pick…. In the 2nd round. Barkley very well could be gone at this point. But if he’s not available the Jags should take a QB with their second pick. Barkley's offensive line was a miserable failure in 2012 as the loss of Matt Kalil hurt all year. Barkley didn't play as well this season, but you can still make the argument that he is the most NFL-ready quarterback and the safest quarterback prospect. The senior completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,273 yards, 36 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Barkley had his best season in 2011. He completed 69 percent of his passes in 2011 for 3,528 yards with 39 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
  34. 34. Kansas City Chiefs - Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia Dwayne Bowe may not be back and why not surround their new QB, Geno Smith, with some familiar faces and a playmaker at that. Tavon Austin up at WR and he produces (2012 numbers: 114 receptions, 1,289 yards, 12 TDs, one of which was 75 yards), line him up at RB and he produces (2012 numbers: 72 attempts, 643 yards . . . that's 8.9 ypc, 3 TDs, one of which was 74 yards), line him up to return punts and he produces (2012 numbers: 15 for 165 yards, 1 TD which was 76 yards) and line him up to return kick-offs and he produces (2012 numbers: 33 for 813 yards, 1 TD which was 100 yards).
  35. 35. Philadelphia Eagles - D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama Fluker was a second-team All-American in 2012 and a first-team All-SEC performer, holding down the right side of Alabama's dominant offensive line. At 6'6 and 335 lbs, Fluker has the mammoth frame and length to engulf rushers and be a mauler as a run blocker.
  36. 36. Detroit Lions - Matt Elam, S, Florida The Lions need help at safety. Louis Delmas & Amari Spievey are often injured & Delmas may test free agnecy. And Coleman and Silva are inconsistent, so hopefully Elam will be the answer. Elam had a superb 2012, making 86 tackles, four interceptions, two sacks, 11 tackles for a loss, one forced fumble and five passes broken up. The junior was an absolute force against LSU and dished out punishing hits all game.
  37. 37. Cincinnati Bengals - Arthur Brown, ILB, Kansas State In two seasons as KSU's starting MLB, Brown amassed 192 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, and 3 interceptions. Brown is a bit undersized at 6-foot-1 and just shy of 230 pounds but makes up for it with explosiveness and instincts.
  38. 38. Arizona Cardinals - Mike Glennon, QB, North Carolina State Glennon (6-6, 232) is a big pocket passer with a plus arm and flashes of brilliance. He completed 59 percent of his passes in 2012 for 4,031 yards, 31 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Glennon played better then the numbers indicate and didn't have a good supporting cast. That being said, he struggled in a number of games.
  39. 39. New York Jets - Eric Reid, S, LSU Reid (6-2, 208) has good size and is a hard hitter. Reid totaled 91 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes broken up in 2012.
  40. 40. Tennessee Titans - Alex Okafor, DE, Texas Okafor is 6’4", 260, and is a versatile player, played OLB, DE, DT and MLB while at Texas and has been consistently productive averaging at least one impact play a game. (TFL, Sack, FF, Int) Okafor had a stellar bowl game proving why he was high on analyst’s lists. Okafor set an Alamo bowl record with 4 ½ sacks, including 8 tackles, 5 for a loss & a forced fumble. Against West Virginia he made two huge sack-fumbles against Geno Smith to produce a touchdown and a change of possession inside the Mountaineers' 15-yard line. Okafor also blocked a kick in that outing. He was also impressive during Senior week . Okafor has some speed to go along with his strength. He is an ascending player who could easily rise high up draft boards.
  41. 41. Buffalo Bills - Datone Jones, DE, UCLA Jones, stouter at 6-4 and a rock-solid 280 pounds, has seen time at left and right defensive end. Jones, who posted 19 tackles for loss for the Bruins but "just" 6.5 sacks is used to being moved around, as he saw time at virtually every position along the Bruins' defensive line throughout his career. His combination of quickness and strength results in an explosiveness that was on display during Senior week. With so many clubs looking for "hybrid" defensive linemen capable of playing inside or out, however, he's earning high marks from talent evaluators for his versatility
  42. 42. Miami Dolphins - DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson Overall, Hopkins has a nice skill set with speed, hands and route-running. He can beat defensive backs downfield for long gains, but still has the quickness to get separation in and out of his breaks. Hopkins' deep speed makes him a threat to score on any reception, and he stretches the field vertically. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder caught 72 passes for 978 yards and five touchdowns.
  43. 43. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Kawann Short, DT, Purdue The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder is strong and athletic. Short had an impressive start to his senior year. He was excellent in Week 2 against Notre Dame, beating center Braxston Cave and guard Mike Golic, Jr. for sacks and also picking up a forced fumble that he didn't get credit for. Short totaled 43 tackles, 15.5 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, four passes broken up, four blocked kicks and a forced fumble this season.
  44. 44. Carolina Panthers - Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State Poyer was an impact player for Oregon State the past few seasons on defense and special teams. The 5-foot-11, 182-pounder had 57 tackles, four interceptions and 12 passes broken up in 2011. He also averaged 22.7 yards per kick return and 14.1 yards per punt return. Poyer had 50 tackles, two sacks, seven passes broken up and seven interceptions this year. He is a good athlete with upside. Poyer played some baseball for the Beavers before deciding to focus on football.
  45. 45. San Diego Chargers - Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers The 6-foot, 190-pounder has the combination of size and speed that many teams look for in a man-cover corner. He had tight coverage and utilized his excellent ball skills to prevent completions. Ryan collected four interceptions, 17 passes broken up, 94 tackles and five tackles for a loss. He tied for second in the nation with 21 total passes defended.
  46. 46. St. Louis Rams - Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida Floyd stands at 6'3" and 298 lbs, is a disruptive force and very tough to block 1 on 1. Last season he registered 46 tackles, 13 TFL, 3 sacks and 1 FF.
  47. 47. Dallas Cowboys - Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky Warford (6-3, 333) is powerful road grader of a run-blocker. He uses his strength to push around defensive linemen and blast open running lanes. Warford is also a good pass-blocker. He is strong at the point of attack and owns surprising athleticism to hit blocks on the second level.
  48. 48. Pittsburgh Steelers - Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee Hunter (6-4, 200) has great height, yet the speed of an outside burner. He looked poised for a mammoth season in 2011, posting 16 receptions for 302 yards and two scores through the first two games however he went down with an ACL injury. Hunter wasn't completely back to his old form in 2012, and yet he still was one of the better wide receivers in college football this season. He finished 2012 with 73 receptions for 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns.
  49. 49. New York Giants - Khaseem Greene, OLB, Rutgers Greene made 137 Tackles in 13 games, including 6 sacks, 5 passes defended and 12 tackles for a loss. Greene is perhaps the best defensive player the Scarlet Knights have ever seen, with a natural flow and instincts for finding the ball carrier anywhere on the field.
  50. 50. Chicago Bears - Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford Ertz has shown that he can be a top-notch intermediate option in the passing game with his 69 catches for 898 yards and six touchdowns, five of which came in the red zone.
  51. 51. Washington Redskins - David Amerson, CB, North Carolina State Amerson's hands are excellent and his ball skills may be better. He burst onto the college scene in 2011 with a whopping 13 INTs. He followed that up with 5 more in 2012.
  52. 52. Minnesota Vikings - Dallas Thomas, OG, Tennessee It's amazing that Adrian Peterson nearly broke Eric Dickerson's record running behind two pedestrian guards. Charlie Johnson and Brandon Fusco can both be upgraded. The 6-foot-5, 308-pounder is athletic and strong. The senior had some good battles with Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins, too. Thomas also played well against Florida's and Alabama's talented defensive lines. His body type is a better fit at guard in the NFL, but having the versatility to play tackle at the spur of the moment is great trait that coaches will love.
  53. 53. Cincinnati Bengals - Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama Following his dominant performance versus Notre Dame in National Championship Game (20-140), Lacy's 2012 totals reached 1,322 yards (6.5 average) and 17 touchdowns on only 204 carries. He was the power runner for the Crimson Tide, but lost carries to standout freshman T.J. Yeldon. Lacy caught 22 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns, too. He had a massive performance against Georgia (20-181) in the SEC Championship.
  54. 54. Miami Dolphins - Brennan Williams, OT, North Carolina Miami continues to upgrade its talent around Ryan Tannehill with another tackle to block for him. Jonathan Martin and Williams could have the ability to play right or left tackle. Williams (6-7, 315) broke into the starting lineup at right tackle in 2011. The senior continued to improve in 2012. Williams was doing an excellent job of run blocking for Bernard before being knocked out for the season with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Williams looks like a second-day pick who has the ability to be a starting right tackle in the NFL.
  55. 55. Green Bay Packers - Margus Hunt, DE, Southern Methodist The Packers need another dynamic player in the front 7 to help out ole Clay Matthews. Margus "Eastern Block" Hunt could be that dynamite the Pack needs. The nickname derives from the fact he is from Estonia & for his ability to block kicks. He blocked three this past season, seven the previous season. Then again, he is 6-8 with track-athlete quickness and an 82-inch wingspan. At one weight-training session at SMU he bench pressed 225 pounds for 35 consecutive reps. Some suggest he will improve that number to 40 or more for the NFL Combine. He opened the eyes of scouts in the Hawaii Bowl versus Fresno State with three tackles for loss, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and a safety . . . all in the first half! He is a physical freak at 6'8" and 280 pounds and is rumored to be able to run a 4.6 40 yard dash. He will blow up the combine and assure himself of a day two selection at least.
  56. 56. Seattle Seahawks - Bennie Logan, DT, LSU Like most of LSU's front seven defenders, Logan is an extremely fast player who has special athleticism. He had 45 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, three passes batted, one forced fumble and two sacks this year.
  57. 57. Houston Texans - Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech Early returns have him performing well against the competition from the big schools. With Posey's injury/slow development of the young WRs and Walters getting older, it may be worth it to take another shot at WR. Patton had a very impressive Senior week as he went up against tougher competition. Patton enjoyed a solid career at Louisiana Tech, and his Senior year produced 104 receptions for 1392 yards and 13 TDs. Patton gained a reputation for coming up big in the biggest games, as his 21-catch performance against Texas A&M.
  58. 58. Denver Broncos - Travis Frederick, C, Wisconsin Frederick (6-4, 338) was a tremendous run-blocker, paving the way for running back Montee Ball.. Frederick is a road grader akin to Zeitler who can push around defensive linemen. Also like Zeitler, his weakness comes in pass protection against speed-rushing defensive tackles.
  59. 59. New England Patriots - Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor Williams racked up 156 catches for 2,789 yards and 23 touchdowns over his last two seasons at Baylor, and had 32 catches this season of 20 yards or more. That tells you what kind of speed and explosiveness he has. Wes Welker is a free agent and a starting receiver is also needed across from Brandon Lloyd.
  60. 60. Atlanta Falcons - Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame If this Gonzalez retires then this pick makes more sense, regardless, they’ll need a replacement eventually. Eifert is a natural receiver. The 6-foot-6, 249-pounder runs good routes, has strong hands, can take big hits and is quick. He really improved his blocking as a senior.

    1. 61. San Francisco 49ers - Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State 6’1" – 210, Fresno State's Phillip Thomas had a solid Senior week, his fluidity and instincts in coverage made him a defender the North quarterbacks generally avoided. Thomas has the speed and instincts that made him a ball hawk safety that led him to a nation leading eight interceptions, three of which were of the pick six variety.
    1. 62. Baltimore Ravens - Oday Aboushi, OT, Virginia Oday had a great Senior bowl, when asked to alternate between left and right tackle throughout the day, Aboushi protected his quarterback and consistently cleared lanes for the South's running backs. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Aboushi is surprisingly athletic, demonstrating enough lateral agility and flexibility to handle the South's top pass rushers. He started all 13 contests last season at left tackle as a junior, earning Second Team All-ACC honors.

TITANS - Round 3,4,5 & 7 Selections, Including Projected 3rd & 5th Comp Picks

3rd Round pick - Baccari Rambo, FS, Georgia

The 6-foot, 215-pounder is a physical player with good instincts and is a bona fide playmaker. That being said, Rambo was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season because of a positive drug test. The senior recorded 73 tackles, one sack, three forced fumbles, two passes broken up and three interceptions during his 10 games this year.
Rambo was an All American in 2011 and was one of the nation's leaders in interceptions with 8 picks. The junior also had 52 tackles and 7 passes broken up. As a sophomore he amassed 72 tackles, 5 tackles for a loss, 3 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. Rob Rang of CBS, concerning Rambo: "In the NFL, there are a lot of guys that get paid a lot of money to be those type of playmakers." Despite his turnover-producing skills, he’ll have to convince NFL teams that he’s worth the selection despite the character concern.

Projected 3rd Round. (All projections are per CBS, 1/29/13)

3rd Round Comp pick - Mike Gillislee. RB, Florida


The senior averaged 4.7 yards per carry in 2012 on his way to 1,152 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also caught 16 passes for 159 yards and two scores. Gillislee is extremely well-rounded as a player and a ball-carrier. He is a very decisive runner and doesn't dance behind the line of scrimmage. Gillislee simply makes one cut and quickly charges ahead. He has excellent cutting ability to dodge defenders and pick up positive yards.

Gillislee additionally has good enough speed to get to the second level of the defense. He is shifty and makes defenders miss while retaining deceptive power. Gillislee has the ability to run through arm tackles and pick up yards after contact.

In the passing-driven NFL, Gillislee is exactly what many NFL offensive coordinators are looking for. He is a good receiver out the backfield who can run routes in the short part of the field as well as going downfield. Gillislee has very good hands, and he is a better receiver than his totals indicate. The NFL is going to love Gillislee's blocking ability given his excellence in blitz protection.

- Dave Richard, CBSSports.com from Senior Week/Bowl - Mike Gillislee, Florida. What stood out the most was that Gillislee made plays every day. He doesn't have lightning speed but did show good burst and read his blockers well. He did a nice job in pass protection and also displayed nice hands. No one would call him a physical back but he looked good during Senior Bowl week following an impressive senior season at Florida. Projected 4th Round.

4th Round - Brian Schwenke, C/OG, California – 6’3" - 310

Schwenke earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors and was one of only five players to start each of the team's 12 games in 2012, while adding the team's Brick Muller Award as the team's Most Valuable Lineman on offense and a Cort Majors Team Captain Award also on the offensive side of the ball. He finished his career with 48 games played out of a possible 50 and also started 36 contests over his four seasons with the Bears. Projected 3rd -4th round prospect.

Schwenke had an impressive senior bowl week and was one of the prospects the Titans had conversations with, per the Tennessean:" Schwenke, the fourth-best center prospect according to NFLDraftScout.com, said the Titans have talked "a lot" to him."They seem interested," he said. "It would be a great opportunity for me. I’d love that." – Click here for article.

Senior Bowl Report per Rob Rang on nfldraftscout.com – "California center Brian Schwenke has proven surprisingly effective when taking on the massive defender. While perhaps not the most aesthetically-pleasing blocker, Schwenke shows good quickness, functional strength and understands leverage. He sinks his hips on contact, anchoring well despite being significantly lighter at 6-3, 307 pounds than many of his opponents."

5th Round – Leon McFadden, CB, Sand Diego St. 5’10" - 190

McFadden had a good week of practice during Senior week, (missed the game due to groin injury) but this is what Todd McShay had to say about him: "San Diego State's Leon McFadden stood out. He jumped Tavarres King's out route and had a nice interception in one-on-ones. He stuck to receivers like glue, was balanced and under control. He didn't turn and run vertically much, but he has looked sharp defending short-to-intermediate routes on several one-on-one and seven-on-seven reps. He's not as tall as you'd like (5-9¾), has smallish hands (8⅝) and average arm length (31¼), so top-end speed is an important piece of the puzzle in McFadden's final evaluation."

McFadden has played in every game since arriving on campus as a true freshman in 2009 and is tied for the most pass breakups in program history, has set career highs in 2012 in tackles (59), solo stops (45), interceptions (3) and forced fumbles (1), while adding 10 PBUs and two interceptions returned for a touchdown, one was 96 yards. He was all conference the last three years. He’s estimated to run in the mid 4.4’s and is a very fluid player and has good closing speed. Projected 5th round.

Some of the prospects the Titans talked to over Senior week included the CB position. Apparently Webster spent a good amount of time with Will Smith, CB from Utah State, he had a poor senior week but it shows our FO is interested in the CB position.

5th Round Comp- Shamarko Thomas, SS, Syracuse - 5’10" - 210

Thomas isn't just a freak athlete, but he might be a little bit crazy too. Or at least that's how his teammates classify him. During the offseason, Thomas can reportedly be seen pushing his car around campus as a training drill. The Syracuse defense doesn't get much national attention, so Thomas has flown under the radar, but could start to fly up draft boards once he shows off his skills at the combine. He can reportedly run the forty in the 4.3 range and should also excel in the vertical leap. Just like the FO falling in love with Sensabaugh & Campbell’s combine there will be a few in 2013 that will increase their stock on the Titan big board. Projected 6th Round.

7th Round - Levine Toilolo, TE, Stanford- 6’8", 265

This pick really depends on what happens to Cook, but I could see the FO liking this guy’s measurements and freak athleticism. He had 24 receptions for 393 yards and four touchdowns last season, more than Tayler Thompson did the year before! He's not nearly as polished as team mate Zach Ertz, but at 6-foot-8 and 265 pounds, Toilolo's size is enough to make scouts salivate. His most productive game as a collegiate player, he recorded five grabs for 141 yards (28.2 average) and one score against Arizona. Toilolo is entering the draft as a redshirt junior, & has a high ceiling in the game of football with his combination of size and athleticism. Projected 7th round.

1 - Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
