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
Luke Joeckel
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
Damontre Moore
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
Bjoern Werner
Defensive End, Florida State

A great athlete with a high ceiling and a high motor. Sounds like what the Raiders need.

4. Philadelphia Eagles
Eric Fisher
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
Dee Milliner
Cornerback, Alabama

The Lions need to stock up on defense, and Milliner is a good start.

6. Cleveland Browns
Barkevious Mingo
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
Lane Johnson
Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma

Pair him with a legitimate QB and the Cardinals are on their way to getting back to respectability.

8. Buffalo Bills
Matt Barkley
Quarterback, USC

The Bills can’t resist the urge to draft a QB, and will snatch up Barkley here.

9. New York Jets
Kenny Vaccaro
Safety, Texas

Vaccaro is shooting up draft boards, and gives the Jets a young safety to help rebuild the aging defense.

10. Tennessee Titans
Chance Warmack
Guard, Alabama

Time to get CJ2K a little help on the line.

11. San Diego Chargers
Keenan Allen
Wide Receiver, California

The cupboard is pretty bare on offense for the Bolts. Time to start building back up.

12. Miami Dolphins
Ezekiel Ansah
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
Jarvis Jones
Linebacker, Georgia

The Buccaneers like leaders, team captains, and hard workers. Check all three boxes with Jarvis Jones.

14. Carolina Panthers
Star Lotulelei
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
Desmond Trufant
Cornerback, Washington

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
Alec Ogletree
Linebacker, Georgia

The Rams need more talent at linebacker as they look to build up a potent front seven on D.
