We Pick The First Round of The NFL Draft

Featured, Sports and Bets — April 24, 2013 at 1:24 pm by

While this years draft is said to have more depth than top-notch talent, don’t expect it to be dull. Many teams would love to move back and I expect to see a lot of movement in the first round. Look for teams to move up into the end of the first round to select their future quarterback. All it takes is one crazy move to shake things up. Christmas is a day away babes. Here’s the first round. Enjoy.

1.  Kansas City- L. Joeckel (LT Tex A& M)- The consensus number one pick. Some experts have Fisher as the best left tackle but I’ll go with Joeckel.

2.  Jacksonville -D. Jordan( OLB Oregon) Considered the best pass rushing defender Jacksonville looks to improve years of a dreadful pass rush attack.                                                                                                                                                        

3.  Oakland – S. Floyd (DT Florida) – The Raider’s offseason moves points to this pick. Sharrif will help this franchise rebuild the rightNCAA Football: South Carolina at Florida way.

4.  Philadelphia – S. Lotulelei (DT Utah) – Moving to the 3-4. By adding Lotulelei the D-line becomes the strongest part of their defense.

5.  Det – E. Fisher (LT Cen Michigan) – The lions run this card to the commish. This plug and play left tackle is a no brainer and allows Detroit to move Reiff to the right side.

6.  Cleveland – D. Milliner (CB Bama )- The best defensive player in the draft, Cleveland now will arguably  have the best set of corners in the NFL.

7.  Arizona – L. Johnson( LT Oklahoma) – Another no brainer early in the first round. This selection will give Palmer the time he needs to put the ball in the hands of the Cardinal’s play-making wide receivers.

8.  Buffalo – R. Nassib( QB  Syracuse) – The Bills have many needs but no way they pass up a potential franchise quarterback.

9.  New York Jets -B. Mingo( OLB LSU) – The Jets need play-makers on D. They could go many different directions here. Mango gives them a super athletic pass rusher.

10.  Tennessee – E. Ansah (DE BYU )- While the Titans could use a WR and a guard I see them going in a different direction. They used a 1st round pick on a WR last year and many teams hate taking a guard this early.  So it’ll be Ansah, who may not reach his potential for a couple of years, but his ceiling is too high to pass up.

The X-Man

11.  San Diego – C. Warmack (OG Alabama) – It pains me to forecast a guard going this early but with such a great need to improve the O-line, Chance is just too good to pass up.                                        

12.  Miami – X. Rhodes (CB FSU ) – With two seconds and two third rounders the Dolphins may decide to address their need for corner help on Friday but Rhodes could help this defense week one.

13.  New York Jets – S. Richardson (DT  Mizzou)  – Face it Jets fans, you’re rebuilding. Richardson is the first step in reinforcing the defense in New York.  A corner here would be a reach. Some experts want to see the Jets take two playmakers on the other side of the ball, Austin and Ertz maybe, but I disagree.

14.  Carolina -K. Vaccaro( S Texas) – With the top D-lineman off the board the Panthers go with a can’t miss safety.

15.  New Orleans J. Jones ( OLB Georgia) – With two of the top outside linebackers off the board, the Saints give Rob Ryan a pass rushing weapon in Jarvis Jones.

16.  St. Louis – T. Austin (WR WVU )- The Rams get their playmaker in Tavon Austin. Having two first rounders allows them to lock up the dynamic Austin.

17.  Pittsburgh – C. Patterson (WR Tennesse) – With the quality of cornerbacks that should be available on Friday the Steelers look to replace the departed Wallace on day 1.

18.  Dallas – J. Copper (OG North Carolina)- I know I know… It’s not flashy but with the contract given to Romo why not invest in keeping him on the field.

19.  New York Giants – D. Moore ( DE Tex A & M )- Doesn’t this fit the Giants’ D? They have been all about pass rushing during their recent success. Moore will work to replace the departed Umenyiora.  Fluker could be another option in this spot.

20.  Chicago -A. Ogletree (LB Georgia)- Need fits best player available here for the Bears. Ogletree will help revamp Chicago’s linebacker group.

21.  Cincinnati – D.J. Fluker (OT Alabama) – Andre Smith is being a knucklehead so it’s time to move on. Fluker makes that move a lot easier.

22.  St. Louis – M. Elam (S Florida) – The Rams added a playmaker on offense at 16 and use the ‘Skins pick to address the defensive side of the ball. The hard-hitting safety will help replace Dahl.

23.  Minnesota – S. Williams (DT North Carolina)- The Vikings D-line is a year away from a potential complete overhaul. With pick 23 and 25 in their pocket, they use their first pick on the big man from North Carolina.


Sorry, can’t help but make fun of this guy.

24.  Indianapolis – D. Jones (DE UCLA)- Since they focused on the offensive side of the ball in the last draft the Colts will look to improve the O-line later in the this draft. Without a second round pick they focus on improving the D with UCLA’s Datone Jones.

25.  Minnesota – M. Te’o ( ILB Notre Dame)- With the draft being deeper at receiver than inside linebacker the Viks use this pick on Notre Dames Manti Te’o.

26.  Green Bay- D. Hopkins (WR Clemson) – A lot of teams may be willing to move up into this spot to draft a quarterback.  The Packers may move down, but if the Packers stay put I see them adding a playmaker for Rogers. Running back is a need, but with the way they  use their RB’s this pick would be better used on a top notched receiver.

27.  Houston- K. Allen( WR Cal )- Houston will have no problem selecting Allen if he falls this far. If Allen is gone they could go with Inter and use their second rounder for a second receiver.

28.  Denver – C. Carradine( DE FSU )- If Denver keeps this pick it will be used on a front 7 player. Take your pick. Tank is one of 3-4 guys they could take here. I say they take Carradine to replace Dumervil and hope one of the big guys is still there in the second.

29.  New  England – K. Short (DT Purdue)- This is a perfect place for a team to move into the first round for a QB. Belichick loves moving back, and with only five picks ( two seventh rounders) in this draft, I doubt they stay put. If they do, they could go wide receiver but they could use some D-line help. Kawann Short can play all three downs and provide a pass rush.30.  Atlanta- T. Eifert  (TE Notre Dame) – This pick could give the Falcons another offensive weapon and would give Eifert a chance to play a year with Tony Gonzalez.                                                                                                              

31.  San Francisco- D. Trufant ( CB Washington) – The Niners find gold when Desmond Trufant falls to them at the end of the first round.Desmond_Trufant If this happens Asomugha could be released before camp starts.

32.  Baltimore – E. Reid (S  LSU)- This safety out of LSU will help the Ravens reload a defense that is always looking for playmakers.
