Draft pick value chart

* - Subject to change due to playoff results

I'll post round 2 after the playoffs.

ROUND 1.
1. Kansas City: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

This draft lacks a lot of elite talent at the top, especially at the quarterback position. I don't see any of the QBs in this draft class as potential franchise quarterbacks.

Taking a player like Joeckel solidifies KC's offensive line for a long time. They are going to be a bad team for a while, but 2014's draft will be loaded with big time QB prospects like Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr, and Johnny Manziel. Having a potentially elite left tackle already in place when a young QB comes in is ideal.

2. Jacksonville: Jarvis Jones, OLB/DE, Georgia

With the number two pick in the 2013 draft the Jaguars pick Jarvis Jones from Georgia.Look the jags could have gone the route of picking up O-linemen to keep their Qb Blaine upright. But at this point its better for the jags to work on building a D that will wreak havoc on any team they face. This is where Jones comes into play he led the nation in sacks in 2012, tallying 14.5 from his outside linebacker position. The Jags need pass-rushers who can come off the edge and since he's also adept at playing in space, he's perfect for them.

3. Oakland: Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah

Richard Seymour isn't even trying at this point. And Tommy 'Supersize me' Kelly sucks.

4. Philadelphia: DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama

With both Luke Joeckel & Star Lotuleilei off the board coupled with the Eagles not being able to gain enough valuable interest to trade down, they shift their focus to another huge need on the defensive side of the ball with the selection of DeMarcus Milliner. After a god awful 4-12 2012 season and many games with pass coverage breakdowns, its clear this thing needs to be blown up. Whether it is or not, remains to be seen. But with Nnamdi Asomugha scheduled to make 15.3M and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as a pending free agent, this pick just makes the most sense. The argument could be made that the only person that deserves a spot from the secondary on the 2013 roster is Brandon Boykin. Dee Milliner adds a physical presence at 6'1 200lbs with man cover skills which is a valuable asset to have in today's pass happy league.

The Eagles secondary is clearly in line for a re-haul just like most of the defense with the rumored pending switch to a 3-4 defense, Dee Milliner gives that re-haul a running start in the right direction.

5. Detroit: Ezekiel Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU

I'm torn between Eric Fischer and Ansah. But the Lions are one of the worst pass rushing teams in the NFL, and need help terrorizing Cutler, Rodgers, and Ponder.

Even if Avril is franchised / signed, they need an upgrade over the KVB.

A star at the Senior Bowl practices, 1 on 1 drills, and what's soon to be a combine, Ansah sneaks into the top 5.

6. Chargers: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

The Chargers had one of the worst Offensive Lines in the League. They could easily use a couple of Tackles and/or Guards. Eric Fisher makes the most sense with this pick. Jared Gaither cant be trusted and has injury problems and they had a undrafted LT taking over for Gaither. Fisher is just too good to pass up.

7. Pittsburgh: Damontre Moore, OLB, TA&M

With a pass rush close to non-existent and an aging defense the Pittsburgh Steelers need more youthful stars that will create an impact on their D-line. This pick will give them a player with all the skills necessary, a high upside and a high motor to help that mediocre secondary bat down passes as well as create more sack opportunities from being double teamed.

8. Buffalo: Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia

The Bills can't stop the run. Nick Barnett hasn't been good, and he's our best linebacker. Kelvin Sheppard (MLB) has regressed and often looked lost in pass coverage. With a revolving door at the other LB position, the Bills grab a versatile stud who can play all 4 LB positions, in both. 3-4 and a 4-3.

A converted safety, Ogletree can help cover those TE's that consistently kill Buffalo. He brings athleticism and great tackling instincts and ability. He's not the strongest at the point, but if he can get his hands on someone, he can take them down. An with the amount of missed tackles and open TE's the team suffered through in 2013, a need to plug in a guy who can do both well is a must.

I will admit I have not done as much research as I did last year on all the prospects, though

but that could change since there is still months until the draft

TRADES.
Cleveland trades 6th and 103rd overall to San Diego for 11th and 45th overall.

Arizona trades 7th and 133rd overall to Pittsburgh for 17th, 48th, and 112nd overall.

Cleveland trades 11th overall (via SD) to Tampa Bay for 13th and 109th overall.

Baltimore trades 32nd overall to Miami for 54th, 77th, and 139th overall.

Philadelphia trades 35th and 129th overall to New York Jets for 39th and 103rd overall.

Use this value chart when making trades: http://www.draftcountdown.com/features/Value-Chart.php


ROUND 1.
1. Kansas City: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M (PAPER R1VAL)

This draft lacks a lot of elite talent at the top, especially at the quarterback position. I don't see any of the QBs in this draft class as potential franchise quarterbacks.

Taking a player like Joeckel solidifies KC's offensive line for a long time. They are going to be a bad team for a while, but 2014's draft will be loaded with big time QB prospects like Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr, and Johnny Manziel. Having a potentially elite left tackle already in place when a young QB comes in is ideal.

5. Detroit: Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah, DE/OLB, BYU (WRLD ART)

I'm torn between Eric Fischer and Ansah. But the Lions are one of the worst pass rushing teams in the NFL, and need help terrorizing Cutler, Rodgers, and Ponder.

Even if Avril is franchised / signed, they need an upgrade over the KVB.

A star at the Senior Bowl practices, 1 on 1 drills, and what's soon to be a combine, Ansah sneaks into the top 5.

6. San Diego (via CLE): Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan (porttheman)

The Chargers had one of the worst Offensive Lines in the League. They could easily use a couple of Tackles and/or Guards. Eric Fisher makes the most sense with this pick. Jared Gaither cant be trusted and has injury problems and they had a undrafted LT taking over for Gaither. Fisher is just too good to pass up.

7. Pittsburgh (via ARI): Damontre Moore, OLB, Texas A&M (WhatJulianSaid)

With a pass rush close to non-existent and an aging defense the Pittsburgh Steelers need more youthful stars that will create an impact on their D-line. This pick will give them a player with all the skills necessary, a high upside and a high motor to help that mediocre secondary bat down passes as well as create more sack opportunities from being double teamed.

8. Buffalo: Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia (WRLD ART)

The Bills can't stop the run. Nick Barnett hasn't been good, and he's our best linebacker. Kelvin Sheppard (MLB) has regressed and often looked lost in pass coverage. With a revolving door at the other LB position, the Bills grab a versatile stud who can play all 4 LB positions, in both. 3-4 and a 4-3.

An with the amount of missed tackles and open TE's the team suffered through in 2013, a need to plug in a guy who can do both well is a must.

9. New York Jets: Keenan Allen, WR, California (WhatJulianSaid)

The Jets have no other clear receiver after Santonio Holmes, which isn't saying much as he might be traded this coming off season. Allen gives the team a great pro-quality receiver with big hands that won't cause deflected interceptions, great over the top catching ability as well as the ability to use his breakaway speed to make plays after the catch. He suffered from a knee injury last season (which didn't require surgery) but come April he will be a much higher-rated prospect after he impresses at the combine as well.

10. Tennessee: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia (MIKEY_HORROR)

Hasselbeck is not the answer, and neither is Locker. It's a risky move, going QB again after getting Locker in recent years...but this may be the bump to bring the offense up to speed.

11. Tampa Bay (via CLE via SD): Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State (MyBestFiend)

The Buccaneers need cornerback help. Ronde Barber was good last season but won't be around much longer, Aqib Talib was traded, and no one else at CB stands out. Banks is a big, physical cornerback (6'2", 185) in the mold of Richard Sherman. He'll have trouble against speedy WRs, but should do well against possession WRs such as Marques Colston and Roddy White. Given the talent at both QB and WR in the NFC South, a good secondary is a must, and Banks, along with Mark Barron, will create a great foundation for Tampa Bay.

12. Miami: Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee (xbrokendownx)

13. Cleveland (via TB): Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon (blimpcityhero11)

The Browns are making the big move back to the 3-4 defense, and, much like their previous experience, the current roster lacks a talented OLB that can rush the passer to play opposite of Jabaal Sheard. Jordan is a bit of a raw prospect, but he displays freakish athleticism and good burst for the position. As a former TE, Jordan has shown the ability to drop into coverage to cover big and small targets alike. While he may need to add some bulk to his frame to translate his pass rushing talent to the next level, his skills in coverage should prove invaluable for a league that continues to develop passing games built around bigger, physical receivers.

14. Carolina: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri (Tyler Vagyler)

The Panthers could go in a lot of different directions here; WR, CB, OL, DL, or S. I believe developing a better presence up front is most important for this team. When the Panthers made their Super Bowl run they had one of the best DLs in the league. Shutting down the run and putting pressure on the QB will make your secondary look much better than it is. That's why Sheldon Richardson is the best player available for the Carolina Panthers. Richardson is known for his high motor and aggression at the line and is a constant presence in the back field. Having him in the middle with CJ and Hardy rushing from the outside will make Carolina's DL one of the most feared for years to come.

15. New Orleans: Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU (xkj1985x)

The New Orleans Saints are sitting in a very nice position at the 15th pick in this mock draft as they had plenty of options to address their severe need(s) on the defensive line. The slide stops here for Mingo as he stays in the state of Louisiana and goes to the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are projected to move back to a 3-4 defense after the firing of Steve Spagnulo so its very possible that they go with a space eating NT at this spot instead. Simply put, they have a bunch of options they could go with at this pick but at this time, Mingo fits the best and will add some much needed assistance to that hot garbage of a pass rush.

You know you have issues when your pass rush in 2012 was ranked 29th and your best pass rusher was Junior Galette (who?). Mingo will step in from day one and be a terror for offenses for a long time to come.

16. St. Louis: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State (Vanislh)

I can't believe he's fallen this far, or for the fact that I'm taking a DE that's almost identical to Chris Long. I follow my draft strategy and take the BPA, and we either have one of the best pass rushing rotations in the NFL bar none, or we make a deal in the near future. Either way, we can't go wrong. As much as there is 1/2 guys I would LOVE for the Rams here, I just can't see passing up Bjorn Werner at 16.

17. Arizona (via PIT): Chance Warmack, G, Alabama (Max_123)

The Cardinals could go any spot on the o-line right here and it wouldn't be a bad selection, i just personally like Warmack more than Lane Johnson at this point, especially with a few quality tackles possibly being on the market. He was coached by Nick Saban so you know you're going to get a tough, well disciplined player. I look for Warmack to be a solid contributor right away considering the Cardinals have shuffled around their line the past two years due to ineffectiveness and injures

18. Dallas: Johnathan Hankins, DT, The Ohio State University (blimpcityhero11)

With the switch to the 4-3, the Cowboys are in dire need of help at DT. Jay Ratliff may not be back after offseason controversy stemming from a DUI. Otherwise, the team has little to no talent at DT. Hankins will immediately step in as a skilled run defender who can take on two blockers to free up the rest of the defensive line. He may not reach the QB all the time, but he provides consistent pressure to collapse the pocket. With or without Ratliff, the Cowboys will see an immediate improvement up the middle with the massive Hankins. Either way, the Cowboys should be most interested in his 0 DUIs.

19. New York Giants: Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame (njdevils327)

With a LB core that consists of Chase Blackburn and Mark Herzlich, there's plenty of room for improvement. Te'o brings a big play ability and on-field smart to a defense that desperately needs it. The giants would of course have to hope that Te'os leadership and intangibles qualities, which were so well thought-of before the scandal, are not hurt by the reported hoax. If he retains his intangible abilitieS, he could become a good value pick at this spot, if not, he becomes another high risk draft pick that does not work out.

20. Chicago: Kevin Minter, LB, LSU (Chris M.)

21. Cincinnati: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas (MIKEY_HORROR)

This pick should help out an already tough defense a lot! Safety has been a weak spot for awhile now. Taylor Mays was brought in to fill the void, but failed to do so. Reggie Sands also failed to fill this gap. Crocker has done decent....but this will be a big upgrade over himr. Nelson/Vaccaro sounds like a legit duo to me!

22. St. Louis (via WAS)*: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma (Vanislh)

23. Minnesota: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee (MyBestFiend)

The Vikings do not have a good WR core. Percy Harvin is great for 9 games a year, and will be hurt for the rest of the year. Jerome Simpson and Devin Aromashodu are #3 receivers at best. Hunter is a bit of a reach here, but he is a big receiver who is solid in all aspects of the game. He'll be a good receiver for Christian Ponder next year and Johnny Manziel next year.

24. Indianapolis: Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia (xbrokendownx)

25. Seattle: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue (Getup And Dance)

The Seahawks need a big body to help hold down the middle of the defensive line and collapse the pocket. Short will get in the backfield and push the quarterback so Irvin, Clemons, and Bryant can take them down on the outside. They signed Jason Jones last year but injuries hampered his ability to help the team much and they need a young stud who they can pair with Brandon Mebane.

26. Green Bay: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame (WardCity)

The packers had a lot of needs coming into the draft, but with many of the noticeable offensive linemen gone, and questions amongst their former draft picks in Derek Sherrod, Marshall Newhouse, etc the packers are looking to fill other holes. Tight End is a big need for the pack, Finley is a headcase and could be gone next season, behind him are a bunch of unproven guys like DJ Williams, Ryan Taylor, Andrew Quarless, and Tom Crabtree who has proven he's more of a blocker if anything. Eifert is the Greg Olsen type of Tight end who can create matchup problems all over the field and be a true vertical threat in the passing game, comes from a pro-style system in Notre Dame and can make an immediate impact for Green Bay.

27. Houston: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson

28. Denver: Larry Warford, G, Kentucky (porttheman)

29. New England: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State (startBBtoday)

30. Atlanta: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas (cryates)

Atlanta's biggest immediate need with an aging John Abraham and a failed experiment with Ray Edwards.

31. San Francisco: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA (tkamB)

32. Miami (via BAL): Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford (xbrokendownx)

ROUND 2.
33. Jacksonville: Barrett Jones, C, Alabama (Coverbydesign)

With the first pick in the second round 33 pick overall the Jacksonville Jags pick Barrett Jones from Bama. This pick just comes down to very simply while Barrett is not going to impress many teams to be a first rounder. He will impress enough to get in the 2-3 rounds. And he fits in perfect for the Jags just due in part that he can go anywhere on the O-line and help them out.

34. Kansas City: Sharrif Floyd, DE/DT, Florida (PAPER R1VAL)

BPA. Dontari Poe is the only legitimate lineman on KC's roster. Tyson Jackson has been a bust and Ropati Pitoitua has no business starting in the NFL.

Floyd can play DE in the 3-4 and DT in the 4-3. First round talent that slipped into the second round.

35. New York Jets (via PHI): Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina (WhatJulianSaid)

The Jets face the risk of possibly losing both Brandon Moore and Matt Slauson in this coming off-season. This guard (who should have easily been taken in the first round) will give them half the work to do and will do a tremendous job on thhe offense by holding off defenders from getting near the easy to pressure QB and even occasionally on running fullback plays to help the struggling Greene (if they re-sign him). The O-line has been struggling as a whole and this may be the piece to put them back together and rekindle their chemistry as a unit.

36. Detroit: Logan Ryan, CB, Rutgers

37. Cincinnati (via OAK)**: Giovani Bernard, RB, North Carolina (MIKEY_HORROR)

38. Arizona
39. New York Jets
40. Tennessee
41. Buffalo
42. Miami
43. Tampa Bay
44. Carolina
45. Cleveland (via SD)
46. St. Louis
47. Dallas
48. Arizona (via PIT)
49. New York Giants
