The NFL Season is over, so it’s time for some more mock drafting. Our latest 2013 NFL Mock Draft covers the entire first round and gives you a look inside of my brain as I made each pick. Share what you think in the comments below, and let your thoughts be known on the college players you want to see become Buccaneers.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M
A franchise player at tackle to combine with Matt Flynn or Alex Smith to help restore order to the Chiefs offense and take some pressure off of Jamaal Charles.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars
Defensive End, Texas A&M
A dynamic pass rusher who will help bring the Jags out of the NFL sack total basement.
3. Oakland Raiders
Defensive End, Florida State
A great athlete with a high ceiling and a high motor. Sounds like what the Raiders need.
4. Philadelphia Eagles
Offensive Tackle, Central Michigan
The gap between Joeckel and Fisher has narrowed. He’s a legit tackle prospect to help rebuild the Eagles offense under Chip Kelly.
5. Detroit Lions
The Lions need to stock up on defense, and Milliner is a good start.
6. Cleveland Browns
Defensive End, LSU
Mingo is a possible DeMarcus Ware type of player who will bring plenty of upside to a rebuilding franchise.
7. Arizona Cardinals
Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma
Pair him with a legitimate QB and the Cardinals are on their way to getting back to respectability.
8. Buffalo Bills
The Bills can’t resist the urge to draft a QB, and will snatch up Barkley here.
9. New York Jets
Vaccaro is shooting up draft boards, and gives the Jets a young safety to help rebuild the aging defense.
10. Tennessee Titans
Time to get CJ2K a little help on the line.
11. San Diego Chargers
Wide Receiver, California
The cupboard is pretty bare on offense for the Bolts. Time to start building back up.
12. Miami Dolphins
Defensive End, BYU
The Dolphins bring in a dynamic athlete on defense who is learning the game at a rapid pace.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers like leaders, team captains, and hard workers. Check all three boxes with Jarvis Jones.
14. Carolina Panthers
Defensive Tackle, Utah
One of the most surefire prospects in the draft falls here, and the Panthers are happy to snatch him up.
15. New Orleans Saints
The Saints will be back with a vengeance and need to make sure the defense matches their instantly improved offense under Sean Payton.
16. St. Louis Rams
The Rams need more talent at linebacker as they look to build up a potent front seven on D.
