2013 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 - Picks 17-32

Last update: Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012. Major changes in all 3 rounds.
Next update: Next week. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2013 NFL Mock Draft is loosely based on my 2012 NFL Power Rankings.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: Eric Reid, S, LSU
    The Bengals had a big need at safety, but they didn't address the position until the fifth round this past April. They'll put more effort into finding an upgrade the following offseason because they won't survive with Reggie Nelson and the recently benched Taylor Mays as their starters.

    Pick change; previously Bjoern Werner, DE

  2. Minnesota Vikings: Kawann Short, DT, Purdue
    The Vikings can address one of their biggest needs with arguably the best player available. Defensive tackle is a big issue right now; Kevin Williams will turn 33 in August, and there's no one of note playing next to him.

    Kawann Short has been dominant this season (four sacks in four games) and will continue to climb big boards as long as he keeps it up.

    Pick change; previously Robert Woods, WR

  3. Seattle Seahawks: Robert Woods, WR, USC
    The Seahawks' receiving corps really needs to be upgraded. Sidney Rice is constantly laboring through injuries and can't get any sort of separation. Braylon Edwards is done, and Golden Tate? Meh, maybe if he can pull of the Touchception every week...

    Pick change; previously Brennan Williams, OT

  4. Chicago Bears: Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame
    Brian Urlacher's successor. Urlacher will be a 35-year-old free agent this upcoming offseason and he's struggled this year. His declining play is probably the result of his knee injury, but will Chicago re-sign him if it fears his body is breaking down? Even if the front office does retain him, Manti Te'o, who recently had a terrific showing versus Michigan State, can play strongside linebacker and slide into the middle once Urlacher moves on.

  5. Denver Broncos: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
    John Fox knows a thing or two about drafting running backs in the first round. He'll need to find a new runner soon because Willis McGahee won't be able to hold up much longer, while Ronnie Hillman hasn't shown that he can be anything more than just a third-down specialist.

    Pick change; previously Kawann Short, RB

  6. San Diego Chargers: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
    Both Quentin Jammer and Antoine Cason will be free agents following this season. The Chargers will have to find some reinforcements at cornerback if they lose either defender.

  7. Philadelphia Eagles: David Amerson, CB, N.C. State
    Brandon Boykin was a nice pick in the fourth round, but he won't be enough if Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie leaves via free agency, as Philadelphia wants three high-level cornerbacks. As crazy as it sounds, there's also a chance that Nnamdi Asomugha will be cut. Asomugha, 32 in July, will be due a whopping $15 million in 2013. He'll need to take a pay cut to remain with the Eagles.

    Pick change; previously Johnthan Banks, CB

  8. Arizona Cardinals: Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
    This is a pretty obvious selection. The Cardinals have pressing offensive line issues that they'll absolutely need to resolve next spring. If they want to keep Kevin Kolb at quarterback, they'll need to protect him because he's so brittle.

  9. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jackson Jeffcoat, DE/OLB, Texas
    James Harrison may not be back next year. He'll be due $6.6 million as a 35-year-old who can't even get onto the field right now. The Steelers may spend an early pick on a rush linebacker, and Jackson Jeffcoat happens to be one of the top players available.

    Pick change; previously Marcus Lattimore, RB

  10. Green Bay Packers: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
    Jermichael Finley will be due close to $8 million in 2013, and Packer fans could be happier about that because Finley is one of the most overrated players in the NFL. He's terribly inconsistent and doesn't appear as though he'll ever live up to expectations.

  11. San Francisco 49ers: Corey Lemonier, DE/OLB, Auburn
    The 49ers have a fantastic defense, but they have a serious lack of depth at rush linebacker. With so few needs, they can afford to take the best player available to address that problem.

    Pick change; previously Johnathan Jenkins, NT

  12. Baltimore Ravens: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama
    Ozzie Newsome always seems to find value on Draft Day, and that's exactly what he gets here in Chance Warmack, who could easily go around the 20th pick. He's an outstanding guard prospect and would project to be a very worthy replacement for Ben Grubbs.

  13. New England Patriots: Barrett Jones, G/C/OT, Alabama
    Bill Belichick loves versatile offensive linemen. Barrett Jones can play four positions up front, including center and guard. This is key because the Patriots need to do something about the interior of their offensive front. Tom Brady is getting killed because of poor blocking.

  14. New York Giants: Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia
    The Giants have issues in the middle of their defense. The safety position is a problem, as is inside linebacker. Chase Blackburn shouldn't be starting, while Keith Rivers, a free agent in March, can never get healthy.

    Pick change; previously T.J. McDonald, S

  15. Atlanta Falcons: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas
    John Abraham was re-signed to a team-friendly deal this offseason, which means the Falcons can cut him if he regresses. Ray Edwards, meanwhile, has been a huge disappointment. Defensive end will be a possibility early in the 2013 NFL Draft.

  16. Houston Texans: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
    The Texans were interested in bringing in a right tackle early in the 2012 NFL Draft, but they never got the chance. Well, here's their opportunity. The position will have to be addressed if the currently injured Rashad Butler can't properly fill in for Eric Winston.
