Justin Worsley Mock Draft 2/26 Edition

1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-14) - Geno Smith (QB/West Virginia)



In two weeks, free agency will officially begin and the Chiefs will officially be able to search for their next signal caller.  Until then, however, the quarterback position is their biggest need and the Chiefs will need to look at the draft for this player.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-14) - Bjoern Werner (DE/Florida State)



Jacksonville needs to address their pass rush this offseason.  Fortunately, this draft features a number of players who can get to the quarterback.  Werner rises after a poor combine by Damontre Moore.

3. Oakland Raiders (4-12) - Sharrif Floyd (DT/Florida)



Oakland may be hesitant on taking Star Lotulelei after it was revealed at the combine that he has a heart condition.  Floyd, however, has crept into the top 10 of many mocks lately.

4. Philadelphia Eagles (4-12) - Luke Joeckel (OT/Texas A&M)



Philadelphia has committed to Michael Vick for at least one more year.  If they want to win, however, they will need to find a way to protect him.

5. Detroit Lions (4-12) - DeMarcus Milliner (CB/Alabama)



Not the biggest need on the team, but Detroit has always gone for the best available player under Jim Schwartz.  Milliner solidified himself as a top five pick after a solid combine.

6. Cleveland Browns (5-11) - Damontre Moore (DE/Texas A&M)



Cleveland needs to upgrade their pass rush if they want to compete with the rest of this division.

7. Arizona Cardinals (5-11) - Eric Fisher (OT/Central Michigan)



Offensive tackle is the bigger need, but if Geno Smith falls to the Cardinals, expect him to be the pick here.

8. Buffalo Bills (6-10) - Chance Warmack (G/Alabama)



Both of the Bills starting guards are free agents.  Luckily for them, Warmack is considered one of the best prospects at this position in over a decade.

9. New York Jets (6-10) - Ezekiel Ansah (DE/BYU)



The Jets need to bring in a guy who can get to the quarterback regardless of whether of not the team is blitzing.

10. Tennessee Titans (6-10) - Dion Jordan (DE/Oregon)



Tennessee has not had a player with 10 or more sacks in a season since Jason Babin in 2010.

11. San Diego Chargers (7-9) - Star Lotulelei (DT/Utah)



Red flags emerged for Lotulelei at the combine, but he is still a top prospect.

12. Miami Dolphins (7-9) - Tavon Austin (WR/West Virginia)

 

I dropped Austin in the last mock because there was more buzz about Patterson, but Austin's versatility and 4.25 40-yard-dash should make teams interested again.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9) - Sheldon Richardson (DT/Missouri)



Tampa Bay will be upset that Floyd won't be available here, but Richardson is not a bad consolation.

14. Carolina Panthers (7-9) - Johnathan Hankins (DT/Ohio State)



Bryce Brown showed you all you need to know about the Panthers interior defensive line.  This run stop unit needs to be upgraded.

15. New Orleans Saints (7-9) - Jarvis Jones (LB/Georgia)



Medical concerns still exist with Jones, but he is a steal for the Saints at this spot.

16. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1) - Lane Johnson (OT/Oklahoma)



If Johnson falls to the Rams, it will be hard for them not to take him.  St. Louis needs to find a way to protect Sam Bradford.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8) - Barkevious Mingo (DE/LSU)



The Steelers defense showed it's age last season.  Injecting some youth will be necessary.

18. Dallas Cowboys (8-8) - Bennie Logan (DT/LSU)

 
Dallas needs to bring in another defensive lineman as the team converts to a 4-3.

19. New York Giants (9-7) - Johnthan Banks (CB/Mississippi State)



Corey Webster was burned too ofter in 2012 to enter this year as the team's top cornerback.

20. Chicago Bears (10-6) - Jonathan Cooper (G/North Carolina)



Chicago will look to find a way to make their offensive line in 2013 gel.  Adding Cooper could help stabilize them.

21. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) - Alec Ogletree (LB/Georgia)



Ogletree comes with baggage, but the Bengals have never cared about that before.

22. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1) - Kenny Vaccaro (S/Texas)



The Rams have talent at cornerback, but the team needs help at safety.

23. Minnesota Vikings (10-6) - Cordarrelle Patterson (WR/Tennessee)



With Percy Harvin often injured, Minnesota will need to find a more reliable target for the inconsistent Christian Ponder.

24. Indianapolis Colts (11-5) - Sam Montgomery (DE/LSU)



Indianapolis is severing their ties with Dwight Freeney, now they will seek to replace him.

25. Seattle Seahawks (11-5) - John Jenkins (DT/Georgia)



The defense looked very good last season, but stopping the run is still an issue.

26. Green Bay Packers (11-5) - Eddie Lacy (RB/Alabama)



Cedric Benson is past him prime and the Packers will seek someone who can be more reliable handling the football.

27. Houston Texans (12-4) - Keenan Allen (WR/California)



Houston will seek to find a complimentary option for Andre Johnson.

28. Denver Broncos (12-4) - Jesse Williams (DT/Alabama)



Denver lacks a true nose tackle for their system.  Williams can help resolve this issue.

29. New England Patriots (12-4) - Sylvester Williams (DT/North Carolina)



Vince Wilfork is beginning to age and Bill Belichick will need to find another mammoth defensive tackle to rotate with him.

30. Atlanta Falcons (13-3) - Zach Ertz (TE/Stanford)



This pick depends on what happens to Tony Gonzalez.  If he decides to come back for one last ride, the team could look at running back instead.

31. San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1) - Alex Okafor (DE/Texas)



San Francisco has a great pass rush when healthy, but Justin Smith's injury really slowed them down.

32. Baltimore Ravens (10-6) - Kevin Minter (LB/LSU)



Baltimore will seek a successor for the recently retired Ray Lewis.
