The 2013 NFL Draft is right around the corner (less than 19 days). Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock and “who” will the Chiefs choose; “why” did they do that, and “they should’ve traded it” whispers and estimates fill the web. Everyone has their favorite picks/players and guesses for who should be the next prospect taken and for what team. Draft experts and analyst skew projections of team needs and scheme fits, but no one really knows what is going to happen on draft day. Evaluating the future is only a guessing probabilities. Unpredictability is the name of the game (as well as new team additions/future superstars) that’s what makes the NFL Draft so intriguing.

Here a version of predicting the future, with the same odd as winning the lottery: My 2013 mock draft. This is my 6th so I’m not going to leave a “note” with the reason why I chose this player with that team. Lets just say it’s an educated guess,  followed by TEAM NEED, then Best Player Available.

    I love Matt Elam, if he’s available for our 2nd pick we have to snatch him up. Enough of this DT talk, it should be a late round pick to back up Thomas. Bad picks outside of Lane IMO.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      If Elam is there… Don’t think he will be… Would be phased we skipped on him. With you on that

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        Im also with you on this one.

        • jamfed

          I like Elam too. I’m a really big fan of safety Johnathan Cyprien as well, but if Kawann Short is there in the 2nd, he’s a better pick (IMO). Depending on what Green Bay or Minnesota does, Elam may be selected in the first round.
          I think safety is a “want” pick in round two, but since SD invested in Brandon Taylor last year, I’d wait till later in the draft to find another safety.
          Short is a very good Nose Tackle prospect, and with one good NT position filled, it’ll improve both DE and ILB positions. So ONE solid NT will help 4 other positions immediatly

          • boltingindiego

            i agree we already spent a 3rd on taylor should see if he develops can’t waste another high pick on a safety.

    • http://twitter.com/NativSanDiegan Paul Kokal

      I like Elam a lot, but I’m concerned he may be too much like Bob Sanders; undersized/hard-hitter with big injury risk. The only year Colts won Super Bowl was when Sanders came back from in-season injury for a healthy postseason. Only if Short (or any other NT) can be a game-changer do I take before rd 5.I do like idea of SS or cb in rd 2 or 3, with whatever position is highest on Chargers Big Board (out of SS or cb, ILB, OLB, RB, RT, or G ) in 3rd thru 7th. Could snatch up a developmental qb somewhere in there. Wish I have access to Chargers Big Board, but it will probably be shuffled a little bit before draft. Tom has given us some clues-player loves football (in order to put in the hard work and dedication to improve). Enough for now. nativesandiegan

    The key for the chargers seems to be the Lions, they choose Ansah in this circumstance, then they have a shot at Johnson. There is a rumor out of Arizona, is that Arians likes Levi Brown as their LT, and that they like Warmack more than Johnson, something to think about.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      the lions could also go for milliner. there is still hope

    • jamfed

      Detroit drafted a 1st round OT last year, Reiff, Riley. I think they should go pass rusher or CB in the 1st round, and draft a right tackle in the 2nd round and shift Reiff to left tackle.

  • Sergio Quintero

    For my mock for the chargers, its optimistic so bear with me: 11 LT Lane Johnson, 45 OLB Tank Carradine/Jamie Collins, 76 NT Montori Hughes/Brandon Williams, 110 CB Leon McFadden, 145 RB Stepfan Taylor, 179 OG Garrett Gilkey/J.C. Tretter, 221 WR Conner Vernon

    • jamfed

      at this moment, I do like Lane Johnson.@ 11. Carradine would be great @ 45, but he’ll probably be gone. Good look’n vertical draft!

  • tbell11

    If the Chargers take OLB in round 3, then in round 2 it should be an ILB or CB. The first 4 rounds should be OT,OLB,ILB,CB doesn’t matter on the order.

    • jamfed

      San Diego has a 2nd round ILB in Jonas Mouton. Butler and Mouton should make a very talented duo and If SD does draft a 2nd round ILB this year, it’s going to be for depth, as typically 2nd round ILB start. I do imagine that Telesco does draft an ILB, but not until round 4 or later. WHO I LIKE AT ILB? Zaviar
      Gooden, Missouri, ILB projected around round 3 or 4.
