    1) Barkevious Mingo, DE-OLB, LSU* -- Mingo offers more impact than any player in this draft, and has the ability to line up at a number of positions in the front seven. The athletic junior comes with great upside and will reward the NFL team that drafts him, then patiently develops his talent.

    2) Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State* -- Scouts had a high opinion of Werner entering the year, and he's continued to impress them this season. He's an explosive defensive end who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage and also holds his own defending the run.

    3) Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah -- Lotulelei bypassed the 2012 NFL Draft and is reaping the rewards of his decision. He's a dominant defensive tackle with terrific movement skills and the ability to control the line of scrimmage or pursue the action outside the box.

    4) Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia* -- Jones has developed into a complete three-down defender this season, and has impressed NFL decision-makers. He's a menacing pass rusher, solid run stopper and fine coverage linebacker. Jones could be an early pick in next April's draft if he receives a clean bill of health, but the way we hear it, prior injury issues could throw up lots of red flags.

    5) Taylor Lewan, T, Michigan* -- The Wolverines have a history of placing talented left tackles into the NFL, and Lewan is one of the best in recent memory. He is not as dominant as former Wolverine Jake Long, but Lewan is more athletic and much better blocking in motion.

    6) Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State* -- Scouts think Hankins grades out better in areas of athleticism and movement skills compared to Star Lotulelei, but they question his every-down intensity. His game comes with great upside, and Hankins can be as good as he wants to be
    .
    7) Damontre Moore, OLB, Texas A&M* -- Moore displays Von Miller-like ability in his game, but has better size than the second pick of the 2011 draft.

    I'd love to get Warmack in this draft. We've got bigger needs than guard though.

    B. Mingo amongst the top rated DE/OLB players has terrible stats. Several of the top rated players at this position have lower stats than many would expect. Sam Montgomery,Bjorn Werner,etc.

    I have a hard time believing a 6-2 guard (listed, may actually be 6-1) will be drafted as high as some believe.

    He'd be the shortest guard drafted in round 1 in atleast 20 years (I got tired of looking at about the 93' draft) and while I'm not saying an inch of height will cause him to be unsuccessfull, my point is he doesn't fit the prototype of the guys that go early in round 1.

    Yea, there are several players I'd take over Mingo. If I had my choice of pass rushers it would be Jarvis Jones no doubt. Probably followed by Moore, Werner, then Montgomery.

    If he is taking position value into account, then projecting Te'o to #13 might make sense, but then Warmack would not be at #8.

    He has Lewan at #5 over Joeckel at #10.

    I didn't know that Sam Montgomery had "personality issues".

    I liked Brennan Williams as a 2nd/3rd round pick prior to his injury. He has him in the 1st.

    He has TJ McDonald as the 1st Safety taken.
