2013 NFL Mock Draft: Kevin Hanson
Updated: Wednesday, April 24th
     
The 2013 NFL Draft will be held at Radio City Music Hall in
New York City in April 2013.  Below you will find the five-round
mock draft from EDSFootball.com owner Kevin Hanson.

Hanson's 2014 NFL Draft.]
     
1. Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
With a 2-14 record, the Chiefs did not win much last year, but
they did win the tie-breaker over the Jaguars for the rights to
the first overall pick in this year's draft.

Neither Matt Cassel nor Brady Quinn was the long-term
answer at quarterback for the Chiefs as the team's passers
combined to throw a league-low eight touchdowns and
finished second behind only the Cardinals for most
interceptions thrown (20) last year.

While both Cassel and Quinn are now elsewhere as backups,
it's unfortunate for the Chiefs (or any other quarterback-needy
team) that there is no stud quarterback in this year's draft like
Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III last year.

Perhaps they gave up too much, but the Chiefs traded their
second-round pick (34th overall) this year and a conditional
third-round pick (that could become another second-rounder)
in 2014 to the 49ers for Alex Smith.

While the Chiefs were unable to re-sign left tackle Branden
Albert to a long-term deal,
they used their franchise tag to keep
him on the roster for at least one more season. That said, they
released right tackle Eric Winston earlier this offseason and
have have allowed Albert's agent(s) to negotiate a deal with the
Dolphins, which means an offensive tackle is likely the pick
here.

Recently, Tony Pauline tweeted that the Chiefs position
coaches prefer Central Michigan's Eric Fisher over Texas
A&M's Luke Joeckel.

During Senior Bowl practices, no prospect was more
impressive than Fisher regardless of position. At 6-8 and 305
pounds, Fisher is the top senior left tackle prospect in this
year's draft class.

In addition, Fisher was more impressive than Joeckel at the
combine and it's certainly possible that Fisher could become
the top overall pick Thursday night.
     
     
2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
The Jaguars have a myriad of needs, but no team recorded
fewer sacks than the Jaguars (20.0) last season. In fact, one
player within their division, Houston's J.J. Watt, the NFL
Defensive Player of the Year, had more sacks (20.5) than the
Jaguars had as a team last year.

In other words, there is a great chance that this pick could be a
pass-rusher like Oregon's Dion Jordan.

While left tackle is not an immediate need, Eugene Monroe is
scheduled to become a free agent in 2014. While Joeckel can
play right tackle as well, he provides insurance in the event the
club does not re-sign Monroe.

Not only does Texas A&M have Johnny "Football" Manziel, the
Heisman Trophy winner, but they had college football's best
pair of bookend tackles last season. With the move to the SEC,
the Aggies faced their share of elite pass rushers and talented
defensive linemen yet Joeckel more than held his own.

Playing on the left side with the son of Hall-of-Famer Bruce
Matthews on the right side, Joeckel possesses the prototypical
size, balance and athleticism you would want in a left tackle.
While his run blocking is solid, Joeckel really excels as a pass
blocker due to his technique, agility and quick feet.
     
3. Oakland Raiders: Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
On the sixth-ranked rushing defense (96.6 yards allowed per
game) in college football, Floyd led the Gators in tackles for
loss and seems to be a lock as a top-five pick at this point.

Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour is an unrestricted
free agent and the team released Tommy Kelly so Floyd
should help fill their void. The Raiders ranked 28th in the NFL
in scoring defense (27.7 points allowed per game).
     
4. Philadelphia Eagles: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
Recruited as a wide receiver and having switched from tight
end to defensive end only two seasons ago, Jordan (6-7, 243
pounds) is a little raw but he's an explosive and smooth athlete
with plenty of upside. Jordan played outside linebacker in 2012
and even covered the slot receiver at times for new Eagles
coach Chip Kelly at Oregon.

Jordan,
who recently had surgery for a torn labrum, should be
ready for training camp.
