The 2013 NFL draft is less than a week away so here is my take on the first round and some of the top selections in Round 2.

1. Kansas City Chiefs, Luke Joeckel, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M
2. Jacksonville Jaguars, Shariff Floyd, Defensive Tackle, Florida
3. Oakland Raiders, Geno Smith, Quarterback, West Virginia
4. Philadelphia Eagles, Eric Fisher, Offensive Tackle, Central Michigan
5. Detroit Lions, Ezekiel Ansah, Defensive End, BYU
6. Cleveland Browns, Dee Milliner, Cornerback, Alabama
7. Arizona Cardinals, Dion Jordan, Outside Linebacker, Oregon
8. Buffalo Bills, Barkevious Mingo, Outside Linebacker, LSU
9. New York Jets, Star Lotulelei, Defensive Tackle, Utah
10. Tennessee Titans, Chance Warmack, Offensive Guard, Alabama
11. San Diego Chargers, Lane Johnson, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma
12. Miami Dolphins, Xavier Rhodes, Cornerback, Florida State
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Desmond Trufant, Cornerback, Washington
14. Carolina Panthers, Sheldon Richardson, Defensive Tackle, Missouri
15. New Orleans Saints, Jarvis Jones, Outside Linebacker, Georgia

Mike D's early picks |

- A tweener-type

not big or strong enough to play defensive end

nor quick and athletic enough to play outside linebacker.

consistency with the fundamental skills??????
I am worried about how his game will translate to nfl.

He has red flags all over his draft profile with various injuries.

Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reported Sunday that leading orthopedist Craig Brigham concluded that Jones never had a significant spinal-cord contusion. Brigham's findings refute findings by USC doctors who diagnosed Jones with spinal stenosis in 2009.

so that settles that i guess. i am not going to believe that 100% myself.

But i can see the saints making this pick

Wow all of our preferred picks are moving up. We need to trade up.

Re: Mike D's early picks

Re: Mike D's early picks
I like Jones.I don't care about his times at the combine/pro day his play on the field speaks for itself.
If the team doctors pass him if be happy with the pick.

Re: Mike D's early picks
Geno's not going top 10.
Tampa's probably not going CB now.
Jarvis Jones has bust written all over him.

If the 1st 15 go like Mike predicts, its Austin or Werner

I could see Rhodes or Trufant also being the pick now that Tampa landed Revis

Re: Mike D's early picks
Agreed on Jones. The guy was dominant in the SEC every damn year and when everyone knew he was the guy to stop. I'd be happy with him.
