Mock Draft: Foundation for the Future

Trades: Philadelphia trades the 2013 4th, 35th, 67th, and a 2014 2nd round pick; for Jacksonville’s 2 pick in the draft. With the 2nd Pick in the 2013 Draft Philadelphia Selects QB West Virgina Geno Smith.


Round 1 Pick #4 DE LSU Barkevious Mingo- If you have read my other mock drafts you know that I love Barkevious Mingo. He’s a smaller 4-3 defensive end who could play a 3-4 linebacker, perfect for our scheme. He has a blazing hot first step, and elite closing speed. He also has some pass rushing moves in his arsenal, and is an athletic freak. I don't think he will be an every down player until he adds some bulk which he most likely will do this off-season.

Round 2 Pick #33 Mississippi State CB Jonathan Banks- A big Physical cornerback at 6'2 185 he has long arms and jams receivers at the line of scrimmage. He’s an extremely good press corner which is crucial in the scheme are defense has moved to. He was originally thought to be a mid to late first round pick but ran a 4.6 forty which dropped his draft status. Gus Bradley has proven before that speed doesn't play a huge role in his defensive scheme with Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner Both having average speed.

Round 2 Pick #35 Arkansas Pine-Bluff OT Terron Armstead- An athletic tackle ran a 4.71 at 6'5 307 pounds; he’s the perfect offensive tackle for the zone blocking scheme our offensive line is turning to. Not a road grater at tackle more of a pass blocker; even though were going to be running a lot like they did in Seattle pas protection always beats out run blocking in today's pass happy NFL. The only thing stopping Terron from being a mid first round pick is the level of competition he played against at Arkansas Pine-Bluff; it may take him some time to adjust to NFL competition

Round 3 Pick #63 Miami Ohio QB Zac Dysert- A Ben Roethlisburger clone heck they even go to come from the same school. Dysert is a big strong armed Quarterback; his career has been dampened though because his supporting cast at Miami of Ohio was terrible. He is extremely hard to take down he isn't a running quarterback, but he is mobile. He has good accuracy and touches on deep passes and can throw on the move. Would provide good competition at a good price for Gabbert ,and we get a good young Quarterback if he beats Gabbert in training Camp.

Round 3 Pick #67 Cincinnati TE Travis Kelce- The more and more I watch Mercedes Lewis the more I feel he not only doesn't deserve his contract; he doesn't need to be on the team. Yeah he can block but you don't draft a tight end in the first round, and pay him a 30 million dollar plus contract to block. The more I watch Kelce though the more I like him. He’s an athletic tight end with great hands that can line up tight or spread out wide like a receiver. Doesn't have blazing speed like Antonio Gates in his prime but has more than enough speed to escape a linebacker in coverage. He has good size at 6'5 255, and would give whoever at quarterback a good safety blanket and target over the middle.

Round 4 Pick #98 Georgia CB Sanders Commings- Another big strong physical corner he would likely be a second rounder if it wasn't for off the field concerns. He has good length and size at 6'0 219 and also has good speed running a 4.41 at the combine. He plays smash mouth football and isn't afraid to tackle the ball carrier. He fits the scheme and can play opposite of Banks giving is a pretty solid corner back trio with Mike Harris in the slot.

Round 5 Pick #135 Michigan KR/PR/WR/WC Denard Robinson- A do it all Offensive player he gives the Jacksonville offense many different dimensions. A super talented athlete Robinson can play many positions on offense kind of like Randall Cobb from Green Bay only more athletic. His primary receiving position would be the slot and he has the speed to blow the top of coverage with the deep ball, something Jacksonville is lacking at the moment. He also could be a solid returner another thing the Jags are lacking. Lastly with his quarterback background he could become a wildcat QB for us when needed giving us and extra edge on offense

Round 6 pick #169 SS Richmond Talyor Cooper- Hulking Safety at 6'5 235 ran a 4.45 at his pro day. He has the size to play as an safety who plays like a linebacker filling the Cam Chancellor role in our defense. He’s more athletic than Chancellor though and gives us a little bit more athleticism and speed in the back end at our safety position a solid tackler would fill position of need on defense with a solid player.

Round 7 Pick # Louisiana-Lafayette CB Melvin White- A large Corner back safety twener his versatility would give the jags valuable depth on the back end on defense which gets the injury bug every year.
