2013 NFL Draft

While this could of course go under the 2013 NFL Offseason thread, the draft is an animal all it's own and deserves the recognition. As of my typing, 49:13 to go until the start!

2 or 3 months ago Eric Fisher was projected as a second round pick. Today he going to be K.C. no 1 pick of the draft.

Yeah - crazy how that works... It's safe to say there are still many surprises yet to come. With so little top-tier talent but such a large amount of quality players, it's bound to be an exciting night...

The Mel Kiper, Jr. impression by Frank Caliendo that was just on was pretty freaking good...

Eric Fisher #1 to the Chiefs.

Surprised they didn't make a move with Brandon Albert in advance of the draft if they knew they were going to take Fisher. On the other hand, you can bring him into a low-pressure situation as a rookie by putting him at RT instead and leaving Albert at LT to ease him into NFL life. Not many 1st overall picks have that luxury.

#2 Luke Joekel to the Jags

Not a fan of this pick for the Jags. Would much rather have seen them take a pass rusher. A lot of right tackles available in free agency and they have a ton of cap space to sign them, could have picked another position of use

#3 Raiders trade pick to the Fins, Fins select Dion Jordan

Fins had to give up a crapload of later picks to move up from 12(?) to 3... Jordan is definitely worth the draft slot, but I am surprised they didn't go for Lane Johnson here...

Edit::: Nevermind, they only gave up their second rounder. Would have thought they'd have to do more to move up 9 slots.

#4 Lane Johnson to the Eagles

Not a huge surprise... Figured Chip Kelly would look for an offensive player, and Johnson is arguably the best offensive player in the draft outside of the two that have already been taken. You knew they wouldn't be looking QB and don't need any WR or RB. The fact that T is a position of need just made this make too much sense.

#5 Ziggy Ansah to the Lions

I don't know much about him other than he was a highly ranked prospect, but I don't really trust the players that shoot up draft boards like he did.

On another note, I was really hoping they'd take Tavon Austin with this pick. The Lions could use a good receiver opposite CJ2K, and between those two and Reggie Bush, they would have no doubt the most electrifying offense... ever?

#6 Barkevious Mingo to the Browns

After signing Paul Kruger for big money, I'm surprised to see them invest in another pass rusher. Then again, even as a Ravens fan, I was never sold on Kruger, so I don't think this is a terrible idea. Very happy that the rumors the past few days of the Browns picking Geno Smith didn't end up being true.

#7 Jonathan Cooper to the Cards

A guard this early? Cards have other needs that could be addressed with this pick rather than picking a player from a position that is typically available later in the first, if not later rounds. Granted, Cooper is a good guard prospect, but still. Then again, they'll never know if Kolb or Palmer or Skelton or whatever crappy QB they have is any good if they can't protect them.

This was a steal. Miami robbed the raiders lol

Miami still has a second and 2 thirds. I also thought this was lane johnson, but i am soooo happy with this pick.

Yeah, I would not be complaining as a Fins fan, and of course (since it's draft time this goes without saying) I would be complaining as a Raiders fan...

#8 Tavon Austin to St Louis Rams

Bills trade back to 16 with the Rams, allowing the Rams to pick local Baltimore and Dunbar High School hero Tavon Austin. Probably the most electric player to come out of the draft since (Steve Dallas' favorite player) Percy Harvin. Jets have to be upset he's taken just before they pick.

#9 Dee Milliner to the Jets

After having Tavon stolen from their grasp, they pick the best DB of the draft and replace Revis. Coming from the SEC, you know that he's NFL ready and the Jets desperately need secondary help (and help at almost every other position, too [Except QB: they just need to acknowledge Tebow is the answer there])

I think the Raiders will end up with Shariff Floyd. He seems to be dropping and they were looking at him when they had the #3 pick. If they can get their man at 12, then the trade worked out for them whether we expected them to get more or not.

As far as scrutiny goes, you can't match NYC, but if you're going to try, you might as well go with the SEC and a team that's won back to back championships

Upon further review, it works out even better because since the Jets have Kyle Wilson and Cromartie, it doesn't force him into a starting position immediately. Then again, I also realize that by taking Milliner with this pick, they basically traded the best corner in the NFL for an unproven commodity. Granted, they save a lot of $$ in the process, but still, if Milliner is anything short of a Pro Bowler, the trade is a waste.

#10 Chance Warmack to the Titans

Another guard picked in the top-10... barf... Since the Alabama was so stacked at every position of the O-Line, I wonder how much that made each individual seem better. Is Warmack as a G really worth a top-10 pick, or did he look better than he actually was because the players he played next to helped cover up his flaws? I don't know, but they need someone to protect Locker and pave the way for CJ

Even though there have been two trades already in the first 10 picks, this has been a boring draft with so many lineman being selected. I guess that's just a reflection of the lack of star power in this draft.

Ehhh... it's arguable, but I was just going with the consensus. I'm not a huge fan of players who don't play at major schools, so I am not as high on Hayden as others.

#11 DJ Fluker to the Chargers

And the boring draft of O-Lineman continues... Definitely a position of need for the Chargers but the same concerns apply here as for Warmack. On the cool side, that's 3 Bama players in a row

#12 DJ Hayden to the Raiders

There goes ya boy! Leading up to the draft, 99% of the mocks I read had the Raiders taking a DT - either Lotuleilei or Floyd, so I'm surprised that after trading down and having both still on the board, they didn't select one. That being said, Hayden is a great story and solid player - you know with his injury, he's got the work ethic to make it in the NFL.
