Week 13 NFL Mock Draft

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-14) - Marcus Mariota (QB/Oregon)

The Bucs are going to have a high pick and will use it on one of the top signal callers available. Mariota has been lights-out this year for the Ducks.

2. New York Jets (3-13) - Jameis Winston (QB/Florida State)

The Jets are now linked to Robert Griffin III, but until something happens, Winston is still in the picture. Winston's value depends on what franchise will be looking at him, his off-field issues have been a turn-off to many franchises.

3. Oakland Raiders (3-13) - Amari Cooper (WR/Alabama)

Derek Carr has no running game or any receivers to throw to, which certainly hasn't helped his development. Adding someone like Cooper would be a difference maker in this offense.

4. Tennessee Titans (4-12) - Leonard Williams (DE/USC)

The Titans will be in full rebuild mode in this offseason, so taking the best player available will be imperative. Williams happens to be that guy and would be the edge rusher Tennessee desperately needs.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-12) - Melvin Gordon (RB/Wisconsin)

Denard Robinson is beginning to look like a flash in the pan. The Jaguars need another weapon on offense. Gordon has drawn comparisons to Jamaal Charles.

6. Minnesota Vikings (5-11) - Randy Gregory (DE/Nebraska)

Minnesota has Anthony Barr and Everson Griffen, but you can never have enough guys who can get to Aaron Rodgers.

7. New York Giants (5-11) - Shane Ray (OLB/Missouri)

With seemingly the entire Giants pass rush headed to free agency, it is time for New York to re-tool their defensive front.

8. Washington Redskins (6-10) - Andrus Peat (OT/Stanford)

Protection from the right side has been poor for Washington all season. The Redskins will look for a new tackle early in the draft.

9. Atlanta Falcons (6-10) - Shilique Calhoun (DE/Michigan State)

Atlanta's lack of a pass rush is a big reason why the team has struggled this season. This will be addressed in the offseason.

10. Carolina Panthers (6-9-1) - Brandon Scherff (OT/Iowa)

Protecting Cam Newton will be the Panthers top priority this offseason. Scherff would immediately become this team's left tackle.

11. Cleveland Browns (8-8) - Sammie Coates (WR/Auburn)

Cleveland got Josh Gordon back, but they may focus on bringing in more weapons for Johnny Manziel. Coates wa explosive in the Iron Bowl.

12. Cleveland Browns (8-8) - Dante Fowler (DE/Florida)

Jabaal Sheard is an impending free agent and Barkevious Mingo has not lived up to expectations. The Browns will look for help at the pass rush this offseason.

13. St. Louis Rams (8-8) - PJ Williams (CB/Florida)

The Rams would like to get a quarterback, but they will likely need to trade into the top 2 if they want that to happen. Another cornerback, however, is also a need.

14. Houston Texans (8-8) - Landon Collins (S/Alabama)

Danieal Manning is a 33-year-old free agent this offseason. Houston will likely look for a younger option for their secondary.

15. Chicago Bears (8-8) - Ronald Darby (CB/Florida State)

The Bears have a battered secondary that has been exposed all season, so it would come to no surprise if they double-dipped at cornerback in the draft.

16. Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7) - Vic Beasley (OLB/Clemson)

James Harrison returned, but it is hard to see him playing much longer. A younger pass rusher will be needed.

17. Baltimore Ravens (9-7) - Kevin White (WR/West Virginia)

Torrey Smith is a free agent this offseason and Steve Smith is old, Baltimore will need to find a new receiver.

18. Seattle Seahawks (9-7) - TJ Yeldon (RB/Alabama)

Forget being a cap casualty, reports are now surfacing that Marshawn Lynch may actually retire. Regardless of what happens, a new RB will be needed in Seattle.

19. Dallas Cowboys (10-6) - Shaq Thompson (ILB/Washington)

Sean Lee just signed a big extension, but he is often injured. Rolando McClain is a free agent and will likely look for a payday after a rebound campaign.

20. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6) - Jaelen Strong (WR/Arizona State)

The Chiefs wide receivers have not found the end zone this season, and for good reason the group is awful. An upgrade is desperately needed.

21. Miami Dolphins (10-6) - Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (CB/Oregon)

Brent Grimes and Cortland Finnegan aren't getting any younger and the latter was only supposed to be a stop-gap solution. A younger cornerback is needed.

22. New Orleans Saints (8-8) - Markus Golden (DE/Missouri)

The Saints have nothing to offer in the pass rush. They will need to find someone to get to the quarterback.

23. Cincinnati Bengals (9-6-1) - Leonard Floyd (OLB/Georgia)

The Bengals pass rush has been a weak link all season and needs to be addressed.

24. Arizona Cardinals (10-6) - Shawn Oakman (DE/Baylor)

John Abraham's career is done, so the Cardinals will need to find another guy who can get to the quarterback.

25. Detroit Lions (11-5) - Hroniss Grasu (C/Oregon)

Domonic Raiola is a 36-year-old free agent to be and the Lions will likely look elsewhere for help at center.

26. San Diego Chargers (10-6) - Mike Davis (RB/South Carolina)

Ryan Mathews is a free agent at the end of the season. San Diego will need to find another lead back after dealing with the injury-prone Mathews.

27. Denver Broncos (12-4) - Eric Kendricks (ILB/UCLA)

Denver needs an upgrade in the heart of their defense.

28. Green Bay Packers (13-3) - Denzel Perryman (ILB/Miami FL)

The Packers were linked to Ryan Shazier before Pittsburgh took him. They may opt for an inside linebacker this year instead.

29. Philadelphia Eagles (11-5) - Trae Waynes (CB/Michigan State)

The Eagles secondary is in need of an upgrade. Waynes is a big physical cornerback, something Chip Kelly covets.

30. New England Patriots (13-3) - DeVante Parker (WR/Louisville)

A weapon for Tom Brady as he enters the late years of his career, Parker would serve as an upgrade to a struggling crop of receivers.

31. San Francisco 49ers (10-6) - Rashad Greene (WR/Florida State)

The 49ers have a plethora of issues at wide receiver that will need to be taken care of this offseason.

32. Indianapolis Colts (11-5) - Tre' Jackson (G/Florida State)

The interior offensive line in Indianapolis has been a weak spot all season. The Colts will likely looks to improve in some way in the offseason.
