    With the 15th overall pick, the New Orleans Saints select:

    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-barkevious-mingo-courtesy-cbs.jpg

    Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU

    The Saints are making the switch to the 3-4 D and need an OLB that can rush the passer. Mingo can do exactly that. The Saints need to find some guys that can fit that defense and excel in it. Mingo is a nice find here. He can add some weight and be more productive, but you can certainly rely on him to apply pressure. Plus, I'm sure Rob Ryan will be lobbying for a guy he can try and mold into a DeMarcus Ware type of player.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 16th pick, in the 2013 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select:


    CHANCE WARMACK, OG, ALABAMA

    This is basically the best of all scenarios for the Rams, as they have a bundle of choices that they can make at 16, and the only real decision to make is whom to choose based on the probability of them not lasting until Pick #22 rolls around.

    For the WR crowd, only Patterson is gone, meaning Austin and Allen are right there for either the Harvin or Reggie Wayne fans. For the offensive line crowd, there's both Fluker, if we look to trade Saffold, or the possible best guard in the draft, Warmack. And then for defensive fans, all safeties, like Vaccaro and Elam, are available, as well as the possible best corner in the draft due to his NFL heritage, Trufant.

    The Rams have not had a good interior offensive line since 2006 when the donut brothers retired, and Fisher goes against his draft history to grab a first round lineman to give the Rams a dominating pair of guards to go along with the addition of Jake Long. Warmack was a key cog to the running game juggernaut of the Crimson Tide and the idea is that he will help set the tone for the Rams as they move on from Steven Jackson. If their young running backs don't succeed, it won't be the fault of the offensive line.
    I believe!

    With the 17th Selection in the 2013 Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

    Damontre Moore, DE/OLB Texas A&M

    The slide stops here for the talented defensive end. Moore had a poor combine showing, but redeemed himself a bit at his pro day. What's more important to the Steelers organization than numbers though is on field production, and Moore had plenty of it. He generated 72 plays behind the line of scrimmage, including 26.5 sacks.

    The Steelers are seemingly always picking at the back end of the draft, and it's because of smart decisions like this. They wait for a talent with question marks to fall to them and snatch them up. In recent years, they had the luxury of drafting for development rather than immediate need, but that has changed, as the front seven is starting to show it's age.

    Moore has the athletic versatility to rush standing up and show help shore up their pass rush immediately. He'll have the opportunity to compete for a starting spot opposite Lamarr Woodley.

    With the 18th pick, the Dallas Cowboys select....



    Kenny Vacarro, S, Texas.

    It's no secret that the Cowboys are interested in Vacarro. He's a local product and the consensus (at least among insiders, though not fans) top Safety in the draft. And the Cowboys have a huge need at Safety. His coverage skills are outstanding in both Man and Zone schemes. He can cover both the slot and the end. By many scouts, he is considered a better product than Mark Barron who went early last year.

    With the 19th pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the New York Giants select:


    Kevin Minter, MLB, LSU
    The Giants' run defense was extremely poor last year (25th in yards/game allowed, 28th in yards/carry allowed). They need a tackling machine in the middle of the defense, and Minter is a great fit. I considered Alec Ogletree of Georgia, but I feel he'd make a better ILB in a 3-4 or a SLB in a 4-3. I also considered Manti Te'o of Notre Dame, but I think Minter is more stout at the point of attack. Plug Minter in on opening day and bet the "over" on 100 tackles.

    With the 20th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears select:



    Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia

    In a move that will surely upset many at Clanram, the Bears go ahead and fill a huge need with their first pick. With the addition of Martellus Bennett, and now Tavon Austin, Brandon Marshall will finally have some breathing room. Countless analysts have made jokes that "Brandon Marshall caught 100% of Cutlers completions". With Jeffery on the outside, and Austin in the slot the Bears offense just got much more dynamic. Running a lightning quick 4.3 40 at the combine, with plus hands, Austin compares favorably to a Randall Cobb.

    With the 21st pick, the Cincinnati Bengals select...





    Alec Ogletree - LB - Georgia



    The Bengals have a big hole at right tackle, but I think they'll bring back Andre Smith here in the next week or so. If they don't, D.J. Fluker makes a lot of sense. But as I'm expecting Smith back in the fold, I'm addressing another need here - outside linebacker. The Bengals are moving Vontaze Burfict inside to middle linebacker, but are so underwhelming on the outside that they've brought Rey Maualuga back to play there. Needless to say, they could use an upgrade. Ogletree possesses the kind of athleticism teams crave on the outside.

    With the 22nd pick your St. Louis RAMS select:

    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-keenan-allen.jpg

    Keenan Allen, WR, California

    With Danny Amendola gone via free agency our RAMS needed to add another weapon for Sam Bradford. The 6' 2", 206 lb Allen looks like he could have the talent to be a big time wide out.
    He uses his size and strength to run routes in the short to intermediate part of the field, but has no fear of running crossing routes and is very good at picking up yards after the catch. He's an aggressive playmaker who attacks the football in the air and is sure-handed. He has the speed to beat defenses over the top as well. He is a fast and physical wide receiver that could be used as a split end or flanker.

    With the 23rd pick in the draft, the Minnesota Vikings select:

    2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)-deandre-hopkins-discover-orange-bowl-west-zgbbp34ome5l.jpg

    DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson

    There goes my top guy! Minnesota adds Hopkins to complete a trio of Jennings and Wright, which actually doesn't look bad. They need to help Ponder all they can, and with being in that division, they've gotta be able to put up big time points to keep up. Hopkins is a terrific prospect. He runs great routes, is excellent at tracking and pulling the ball down, and it will certainly help out Ponder. This gives their offense some firepower outside of AP.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 24th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select:


    BJOERN WERNER, DE/OLB, FLORIDA STATE

    The Colts are in an interesting position where they are a team that needs lots of things but a team that doesn't need much. The reason for this is because they went into last year as a team that was rebuilding, but came out as a playoff team. They weren't expecting to compete, but did on the shoulders of Peyton Manning Jr, Andrew Luck.

    With the main offensive skill players mostly 2nd year players, they should be even more capable this year, though Cal's Allen could have made sense as the heir apparent to Reggie Wayne. DJ Fluker would have been snapped up but with the RT situation presumably settled with the aquisition of Cherilus from Detroit, this seems unlikely.

    Defense is where the question marks exist for the Colts as they are in year two of the transition from the cover 2 4-3 defense to a 3-4 front more like what Pagano ran in Baltimore. The defensive line did a passable job but needs true 3-4 players. Freeney and Mathis made acceptible rush 'backers but Freeney will not be back and Mathis is not exactly young himself. At the end of the day, a potential dynamic pass rusher can't be passed over and Bjoern Werner isn't the most experienced player, but that could come in handy as he learns how to be an OLB in a 3-4. Defensive line considerations were Sylvester Williams and John Jenkins as the top 5 tech DE and NT talents on the board.
    I believe!

    Jonathan Hankins, DT The Ohio State University

    Having selected a receiver to fill the hole left by the Percy Harvin Trade, the Vikings can now turn their attention to another glaring need. The middle of the defensive line used to be a strength for the team, but Kevin Williams is turning 33 and the other tackle position is a liability.

    Hankins is a big run clogger at 320+ pounds, but has surprising penetrating ability and can wreak havoc in the backfield. Hankins played at both tackle and end for the Buckeyes, and his versatility will allow him to perform well along the entire line for the Vikings. The Vikings shore up an immediate hole while keeping an eye toward the future by picking Hankins.

    With the 26th pick, The Packers select....



    Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

    Right now Eric Walden is starting opposite Clay Matthews. That's not a good thing. Okafor will take some pressure off the All-Pro Matthews. Okafor is a strong run defender that plays well from the line into the backfield. Dropping into coverage is not one of his best suits, but Matthews is one of the best in the league at that, so there may not be a lot of coverage needs for Okafor. He has a high football IQ and causes plays.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 27th pick, the Houston Texans select:


    Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    It seems fitting that I'm the one selecting Williams, who is one of my favorite prospects. Truth is, though, this was not a tough call. The Texans need a WR to play opposite Andre Johnson, and Williams is the perfect match. If he gets one on one coverage on a regular basis, he should be able to make some big plays as a rookie. In time, if he expands his route tree, he could be a No. 1 receiver.

    Re: 2013 ClanRam Insiders 2 Round Mock Draft (Selection Thread)

    With the 28th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, The Denver Broncos select:


    Datone Jones, DE, UCLA

    With the unexpected loss of Elvis Dumervil, the Broncos are desperate for depth on the defensive line. The Broncos happily select Jones. Coming off a stellar senior year in which he amassed 62 tackles (19 for loss), and 6.5 sacks, Jones is one of the many defensive lineman to be first round picks in this years draft. Teams must wonder though if it is a one year wonder after the season before he struggled with only 41 tackles and 3 sacks the season prior. Overall, a great pick for the Broncos as they fill arguably their biggest need.

    With the 29th overall pick, the New England Patriots select...





    Desmond Trufant - CB - Washington


    This was a tough decision between three prospects. D.J. Fluker is arguably the best value on the board, and would either fill the hole at right tackle left by Sebastian Vollmer or could work inside at guard over Dan Connolly. Kawann Short would make a lot of sense as a plug and play starter next to Vince Wilfork in New England's four-man front. But ultimately, I went with cornerback Desmond Trufant, who is also one of the best values on the board and protects the Patriots if they opt not to sign Aqib Talib to a multi-year deal after giving him a one-year contract this offseason.
