2013 NFL Mock Draft Projections Updated
We now have a little more information, though not much, but here is a quick 2013 NFL Mock Draft update. We now know that Michael Vick will be the quarterback for Chip Kelly and Eagles. Kansas City Still has no word on re-signing of Albert, but they did agree to a trade with San Francisco for Alex Smith. Here is the latest NFL mock draft updated.
As with all early 2013 NFL mock draft updated boards, ours changed significantly in the last few weeks. The current 2013 NFL mock draft updated projections really took shape up in recent weeks. After the NFL combine all 2013 NFL mock draft projections have solidified more, and prospects are showing their value.
The one major change we noted, Andy Reid and the Chiefs now have Alex Smith. This doesn’t mean we’re certain of who Kansas City will select with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, but it narrows the field. I know the latest 2013 NFL mock draft updated projections update will change before the April 25th date, skill positions will continue to move up. As they do, the 2013 NFL mock draft boards will reflect many first round changes.
After evaluating some of the draft prospects, and the Chiefs addition of Alex Smith, Arizona will be more interested in Geno Smith. Filling the defensive side of the ball for Arizona is key, but Bruce Arians likes that Smith can run, but wants to be a pocket quarterback in the NFL.
I also put a premium on wide receivers for Minnesota, Seattle, and Miami. All three have a good defense, adding to the offensive arsenal will bring big improvement. In Pete Carol’s place, I have the Seahawks selecting TE, Zach Ertz, adding a solid tight end to anchor the already potent offense. Russell Wilson is already dangerous, and a quality tight end will give NFL defenses even more to worry about.
Enough from me, you’re smart enough to see the trend in the latest 2013 NFL mock draft projections. In coming weeks we will have a lot better idea of how the draft will shake out, and what the 49ers plans for Alex Smith are. I spoke to staff member about the $1 million, due to Smith next week, the team is considering paying Smith to buy time.

2013 NFL Mock Draft Projections Updated Database
|LATEST 2013 NFL MOCK DRAFT UPDATED PROJECTIONS
|2013 NFL Draft Order By Team
|Pick||Team Order||Projected Selection
OT 6'5" 306 LBS. Texas A&M
The Chiefs are still considering a trade of current tackle Branden Albert. This should leave Luke Joeckel as the front runner for Kansas City.
DE 6'6" 248 LBS. Florida
Jordan should help the Jags rise from the bottom of the NFL pack in team sacks. Only 20 all of last season.
DT 6'3" 303 LBS. Florida
The Raiders need a lot of holes filled. This is a solid defensive start.
OT 6'7" 306 LBS. Central Michigan
Injuries hurt them on the offensive line in 2012. Fisher is a great NFL prospect who will make an immediate impact.
DE 6'5" 271 LBS. BYU
Great addition the already good Detroit defense. The Lions should come back strong in 2013.
CB 6'0" 201 LBS. Alabama
Good shadow of Haden to sure up the defense.
DE 6'4" 241 LBS. LSU
Taking a QB here would be a waste of the 7th pick. The Cardinals need a pass rush.
QB 6'3" 214 LBS West Virginia
I think the Bills will consider Barkley here but, the run option of Smith will win them over.
SS 6'2" 245 LBS. Georgia
Bad Pro-Day but still a top 10 pick.
OG 6'2" 311 LBS. North Carolina
Cooper is a steal in the 10th spot. His athletic ability is second to only Joeckel in this years draft.
OT 6'6" 304 LBS. Oaklahoma
Simple decision here. The Chargers need protection for Rivers to see if the QB has anything left to offer.
CB 6'1" 210 LBS. Florida State
Miami has had a great off-season. Adding Rhodes puts them a step closer to competing with New England.
DT 6'2" 311 LBS. Utah
Roy Miller's absence will be far less noticed with Lotulelei stepping in.
DT 6'4" 295 LBS. Missouri
Carolina has offensive power but now needs new GM Dave Gettleman to add to the defense.
DE 6'4" 255 LBS. Florida State
The Saints have options in the first round. They could use OT but, Werner will be a good addition on defense.
WR 6'3" 205 LBS. Tennessee
Bradford needs options in the passing game. Now more than ever with the loss of Jackson in the backfield.
WR 5'8" 174LBS. West Virginia
Austin is not going to replace Wallace but, he could prove to be a solid fill in.
G 6'2" 325 LBS. Alabama
Protection and running lanes are two things that Dallas can desperately use.
OT 6'5" 339 LBS.
The Giants are in need of a offensive line upgrade.
ILB 6'2" 242 LBS. Georgia
The Bears are old. That's just the reality they need to address. Ogletree will help in that area.
WR 6'2" 205 LBS. Califiornia
The only receiver that needs more help is Andre Johnson. A.J. Green should reap the reward of another top notch receiver.
SS 6'1" 210 LBS. Texas
This is a ball magnet who could really benefit from the rush of the Rams defensive line.
DT 6'3" 299 LBS.
Big gamble with a huge potential upside.
WR 6'4" 196 LBS. Tennessee
The speed of Hunter will compliment T.Y. Hilton and veteran Reggie Wayne. May as well use that rocket arm of Luck.
ILB 6'1" 241 LBS. Notre Dame
The extra first round pick could go to a better player but, T'eo has improved his off the field reputation enough for the Vikings to gamble.
FS 5'10" 202 LBS Florida
With Woodson out, the Packers will likely look to grab a safety here. Though a upgrade to the O-Line would be wise too.
WR 6'0" 201 LBS.
Nobody needs help more than Andre Johnson. Woods will make defenses have to spread out and open up more running lanes for Foster.
G 6'4" 248 LBS. Texas A&M
Fast, strong, and full of potential. Moore should add a good pass rush to the already stout defense for the Broncos.
FS 6'1" 213 LBS.
New England needs to get some better defensive backs. Look the Patriots to snag Reid here.
CB 6'0" 190 LBS.
Atlanta just filled one of CB positions and Trufant will give them two great corners.
TE 6'6" 251 LBS. Notre Dame
There are two obvious choices at TE but, I doubt Ertz will get the nod in spite of his Stanford ties.
ILB 6'0" 246 LBS.
With all the holes created from free agency, the Ravens need to start with the linebacker position.
