    Mike Kiper released his 1st Mock Draft for 2013, giving us some more data to chew on.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draf...701/2013-nfl-draft-mel-kiper-first-mock-draft



    Here are his top 10, plus pick 18.
    1. Kansas City: Luke Joeckel, OT, TAM
    2. Jacksonville: Damontre Moore, DE, TAM
    3. Oakland: Star Lotulelei, OT, Utah
    4. Philadelphia: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
    5. Detroit: Jarvis Jones, LB, Georgia
    6. Cleveland: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida St
    7. Arizona: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama
    8. Buffalo: Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame
    9. NYJ: Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
    10. Tennessee: Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon
    Dallas: Jonathan Cooper, G, UNC


    "Analysis: The Cowboys had an uneven season on the offensive line, and Cooper will provide an upgrade immediately. This is a complete guard, a player who is exceptional at delivering blocks and moving in tight quarters, and he moves extremely well for the position. He can deliver an initial blow to eliminate an interior defender and then move easily to the second level where he can line up linebackers and safeties and block in space. "

    See the link above for Kper's complete Mock with analysis.

    I like Warmack a little more but would be absolutely fine with adding Cooper to this oline.

    At this early stage, I do too. But Warmack was way out of reach at pick 7. I wonder if that would be the highest a Guard has ever been picked? Probably not, but it's very early.

    Maybe the most interesting thing about this mock is that not a single QB was taken in round 1.
    My guess is that will not be the case, and he knows it....just a Mock 1.0. I do think those guys at CBS putting a QB at #1 overall are crazy though. KC could quite possibly wait an entiore round and get a decent QB at the top of round 2 with reaching about 20 picks to get one with the 1st overall.

    Yeah, it's early for a guard in top ten.

    People said DeCastro may not make it to our selection last year too, you just never know.

    That would be Menelik Watson.

    First time I've seen him up this far.

    Man I can see us taking a long hard look at Sam Montgomery if he is on the board. I hope they take Cooper in that case.

    Warmack going that high is interesting but i think he'll be in that area. He's that good

    How about Montee Ball sneaking his way into the first round?

    this is what i also found most interesting

    you know that at least 1 QB will be taken in the top 10 and i would be another before us just because teams that need QBs become desperate and start to out think themselves

    it is therefore very possible that eiter Warmack or one of the DTs drops or that we could trade down and still pick up an OG/C or DT in the mid 20s

    And who says Decastro isn't all that was said about him?

    He tore up his knee. NO ONE can say anything about him right now, good or bad.

    Well its not like before he tore up his knee he wasnt called a disappoinment in camp by media that coveres pitt. He didnt look very good vs Dallas when they played. He's the guy that blew his assignment on Lissemores sack.

    agreed, but point is that just because warmack is projected at 7 right now does not mean he will go there

    if i were a betting man, i would bet he will not go in the top 10 just becasue of his position

    I thought he was referring more to the draft position than the player.

    Some people were putting Decastro in the top 10 and many thought he'd be gone by the time he got to us at 14.
    But instead he went much later at 24.

    In hindsight, he would have been a good trade down candidate--get him and another fairly high draft pick or two for free.

    I would be shocked if Warmack went 7th and would be even more shocked if Warmack lived up to the hype. Not to many elite guards are in the 6'2 and under club.

    He won't go top 10 and he'll be lucky if he goes top 15.


    After Pro Days and all the workouts have finished there will be guys who will validate being picked ahead of a guard. It happens every year. Especially with D Line and Corners shooting up the board. Some random QB will shoot up too. Wouldn't be surprised to see a Receiver as well.

    I agree, but it's still early. Some team will get desperate and make a "Gabbert" like decision. But pundits who are claiming Geno Smith #1 are just crazy.
