Here it is, the Titan Sized 2013 NFL Mock Draft 2.0, performed round table style with 4 different staff members. We’ve done a full 2 rounds, which were pretty intense. Thanks to DC Pro Report, Hail Redskins, NFL Draft Dog, WalterFootball, Sports Jabber Mock Draft Database, and Mock Draft Database for featuring the link. Here’s what we came up with:

 

* Since the mock occurred, the Raiders have signed Matt Flynn and the Buffalo Bills have signed Kevin Kolb

1. Kansas City Chiefs

 OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M – Now that the Chiefs have their quarterback in Alex Smith, they need to improve some areas around the team. They need to protect Smith. Even though they franchise left tackle Branden Albert, that move shouldn’t change the Chiefs’ mindset. Albert might only be there for one year, or might even get traded before the start of the season. And if not, Joeckel can play both tackle positions. Easy pick for the Chiefs. – Matias Wodner

2. Jacksonville Jaguars

CB Dee Milliner, Alabama – Call me crazy, but the Jaguars cut loose a lot of veterans in their backfield. Dawan Landry, Drew Coleman, Aaron Ross, and Rashean Mathis have all hit the bricks. This may seem high for taking a CB, but Milliner is the top CB in this class and the Jaguars know what they’re getting with him. – Justin Stewart

3. Oakland Raiders

QB Geno Smith, West Virginia – Second-year general manager Reggie McKenzie has yet to draft his franchise quarterback. Is Geno Smith his man? It’s hard to envision a quarterback not getting taken before No. 7 or No. 8. – Joshua Huffman

4. Philadelphia Eagles

OT Eric Fisher, C. Michigan – The Eagles would have rather Milliner slipped down to them since their secondary took a major hit this off season.  Dion Jordan is definitely an option here since he recently played for head coach Chip Kelly at Oregon.  The problem is the lack of need at the position.  Not sure yet how Kelly values the offensive line, but anything to keep Michael Vick running plays as opposed to running for his life, would greatly help the team. – Josh Gunnels

5. Detroit Lions

OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma – The Lions have holes to fill at defensive end and cornerback, but this is a relatively deep draft with regards to those two positions. Many a time last season, Matt Stafford was under pressure and unable to properly use his feet and body to unleash great throws. Getting a very good left tackle can solve some of those problems, and Johnson would be a good solution for a while. – Matias Wodner

6. Cleveland Browns

DE/OLB Jarvis Jones- While Jones does have some health concerns, he’s a great player and can help the Browns switch back to the 3-4 defense with greater ease. The Browns could hypothetically take a QB here, but with the mess they’ve got at that position right now, they may let it play out another year. – Justin Stewart

7. Arizona Cardinals

OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina- If Geno Smith is off the board, they’ll try to trade down. Since I can’t do trade downs on here, I’ll just take Jonathan Cooper with the No. 7 pick. Cardinals need offensive lineman for a team that allowed 58 sacks. Kenny Vaccaro is another option. – Joshua Huffman

8. Buffalo Bills

QB Matt Barkley, USC – Buffalo may make a move here and try and trade up to get Geno Smith, but I think the price would be too high.  They just let Fitzpatrick walk and need a QB of the future to rally behind.  Much like 2 years ago, teams that need a QB are going to “reach” and take 2nd round talent in the first round.  The Bills pull the trigger on whoever their QB is at this spot. – Josh Gunnels

9. New York Jets

DE Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah, BYU – The Jets have a bunch of holes to fill, so this pick can go a lot of ways. Dion Jordan is a real option but he looks more fitting as a 4-3 OLB. Ansah has rare size and speed, and this coming from a very inexperienced player. Some time on the field and Ziggy might explode into one of the better defensive players in the league. Also, he can play both OLB and DE in the Jets 3-4. – Matias Wodner

10. Tennessee Titans

OG Chance Warmack, Alabama – It’s just too simple. Warmack is a great talent, Cooper is off the board, and the Titans still need someone to start opposite Levitre. They could wait until day 2 if they think there’s someone there that they can plug in (Kentucky’s Warford?), but that’s also running a risk of missing their guy. This pick is a bit up in the air, but for this mock, Warmack works. – Justin Stewart

11. San Diego Chargers

DE/LB Dion Jordan, Oregon – If Dion Jordan falls to No. 11, there’s no way that the Chargers let that continue. They get some much needed pass-rush into their front seven, a guy who can replace Shaun Phillips. – Joshua Huffman

12. Miami Dolphins

CB Desmond Trufant, Washington - Miami took care of their need at receiver through free agency and CB is next up on their list of needs.  There is still great pass rush and DT talent available at this spot the way this draft fell, so I wouldn’t be shocked to see Miami go defensive line based on who’s available. Milliner goes in the top 10 and Rhodes may need a little too much work for this high in the draft.  Miami likes Trufant out of Washington. – Josh Gunnels

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

CB Xavier Rhodes, FSU – The Bucs need pass rushing and secondary help. With Ansah and Jordan gone, they might take a look at Bjoern Werner, but Werner has a good amount of faults as a pass rusher. So why not try to fix up the secondary with some cornerback help? Rhodes is far from a finished product, but he’s one of those size, speed and athleticism guys that are hard to pass up. With a trade for Revis uncertain, cornerback is likely for the Buccaneers with this pick. – Matias Wodner

14. Carolina Panthers

DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida – Defense, defense, defense. The Panthers have had issues with stopping the run game. Sharrif makes perfect sense here. – Justin Stewart

15. New Orleans Saints

NT Star Lotulelei, Utah – New Orleans Saints need a nose tackle in their new 3-4 defense. They’re a strong candidate to trade down because they lost their second-round pick from Bountygate. – Joshua Huffman

16. St. Louis Rams

S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas –  Many think the rams pull the trigger on Cordarelle Patterson or Keenan Allen here to offset the loss of Amendola.  They need offensive playmakers to put around Bradford if they want a chance to succeed.  They also need a RB.  But Fisher is a defensive guy, and in a division with Keapernick and Wilson as QBs, the top rated safety is too hard to pass up.  Fisher is a secondary guy and will wait a couple picks to get a WR. – Josh Gunnels

    Absolutely NO way Dion Jordan falls out of the top 10. I think the Titans would be ecstatic to take him. Also, I think Geno falls all the way to 8th, and possibly further. All these recent QB trades show how uncertain teams are about the top QB prospects.

    • http://www.titansized.com/ Justin Stewart

      Yeah. Shortly after we finished this, all the QB moves started happening. Obviously not the strongest class for them. Teams are settling for some pretty average guys.

      • David Fleming

        I think Geno will be only QB drafted in 1st round, which sucks for us. I wanted Jacksonville, Oakland, Cards, Bills, and Jets to all consider first round QBs. Leaves more players for us.

        • http://www.titansized.com/ Justin Stewart

          That would have been nice…

        • josh gunnels

          I would be shocked if only 1 QB goes in the first. Teams are going to convince themselves they have to reach up and get their guy regardless of “value”.

          • David Fleming

            Yeah I can see some teams trading back into the 1st to grab a guy like Barkley or EJ Manuel, but I think Geno will be the only top 20 QB taken, which is so rare.

        • josh gunnels

          Although the recent Kolb/Palmer/Flynn news does change that scenario quite a bit.

    • josh gunnels

      Truth.

    • josh gunnels

      I don’t know. Isn’t Jordan a 3-4 guy? Gray was just saying how they don’t want pass rush speciliasts etc. But that could be smoke screen.

      And why has Werner fallen out of favor with everyone?

      • David Fleming

        I don’t think Jordan can be classified as anything other than a freak, and I mean that in the nicest, most complimentary way. At nearly 6’7″ and 250 lbs, he can rush the passer as well as cover TEs and WRs. I think he’ll add another 20 lbs in the NFL and become an Aldon Smith/JPP type force, with more athleticism. If he falls to 10 and we don’t take em, Bud Adams better watch out for me.

        • josh gunnels

          I agree he’s awesome, just think Gray and Williams would rather have someone more like Werner that can play the run as well. I don’t see Jordan holding up against the run untill he puts on the 20 lbs you’re talking about.

          “I don’t think Jordan can be classified as anything other than a freak, and I mean that in the nicest, most complimentary way.”
