With the 11th Pick, in the NFL Draft: Who am I gonna pick?

2013 NFL Mock Draft, Full 3 Rounder (genuine) 8.0

By James Fedewa

This is the real deal mock draft, so make sure you print this out and prepare to watch your NFL Draft with a pen, pencil, highlighter and printout lists. You won’t find a better mock draft that this one here. After 8 versions, based on pure player talent/projections and team need, this will probably be a better version than you would see on larger networks like CBS, ESPN and NFL.

This draft should be filled with several draft-day trades, and one trade can bust a mock draft (or one odd-ball team selection. Look for Here’s my latest NFL Mock Draft (with no projected trades):

San Diego Chargers Select:

#11 Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma – With the media OVER-HYPE of some offensive linemen this year, reality sets in, and three quarterbacks are selected in the top ten. Although I have Arizona selecting left tackle Eric Fisher in this mock draft, I do believe the Cardinals pass on an offensive linemen for a premier pass rushing prospect. Arizona will draft a quarterback with their second round pick, and if they pass on pass on a pass rusher in the 1st and 2nd round, there will be none in the third round and pass rusher is the most glaring need. San Diego will have their choice as several O-Line prospects, including Eric Fisher.

#45 Sam Montgomery, OLB/DE, LSU – A very lucky selection for San Diego, although maybe a slight luxury pick in the 2nd round (since the Chargers are so thin on the defensive line).  San Diego needs depth at OLB and Montgomery can step in at (situational) nickel/dime pass rusher. Montgomery is a very good pass rusher, but he did say some things at the combine (about taking plays off at LSU), so some teams question his motor. Sometimes being brutally honesty can cost you being selected in the first round.

#76 Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff – Armstead is loaded with talent but is extremely raw and needs time to marinate in the NFL. Some suggest Armstead will be selected early in the second round, but I don’t think he’s ready to start in 2013 (and the 2nd round is full of great starting material players that will go ahead of him). Armstead will need at least a year of NFL coaching and he came to the right place in San Diego (with new o-line coach Joe D’alessandris). With him sliding to the 3rd round, SD is shocked that he’s there and are going to have to push defensive line back till the 4th or 5th round. I’m not 100% sure if Armstead is a pro-bowl left tackle, but he could be a premier guard.

(4th round: NT / 5th round: DE / 6th round: SS / 7th round: CB)


The NFL Draft is like no other event in professional sports and gets more notoriety than some actual games. Not everyone can be an NFL player, but most football fans would love to run a franchise. So, in comes the mock draft (a “personal selection” of how you’d pick your team).

    Any thoughts on any possible trades? I’m betting there will be 4-6 trades tommorow.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      seriously…. feel like there will be a ton

      • tubbs45

        Exactly the cost threshold is so much less now with the rookie cap… Strong work nfl!

    • jamfed

      I think you’re right too. There will be a lot of trades! SD included!

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    I’m going to print this out and see if you even get any of them right, man this is the oddest mock I have seen so far. Having 3 QB’s in the first sounds like a Chargers fans wet dream and us landing Lane would be the climax lol. I just don’t see it happening, but if you are right you will look like a genius.

    • jamfed

      BTW (and off topic): Kyle Blanks is my fav Padre. I watched him play 1st base in game in Portland (Beavers) about 6 years ago, and I was an instant fan. I’ve been rootin’ for him for a breakout season (and he will)!

    • tubbs45

      No doubt! Genius or wishful we shall see!

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    I have a new man crush in this draft, Brandon Williams NT who we can get in the 3rd. Anyone else watch this and want him to be a Charger? Just seems like a good guy who can ball.


    • jamfed

      I have B.Williams going #96 to the KC Chiefs. Small school prospect, but he does have a high motor. He should be available with SD’s 3rd pick (if Armstead is gone). BUT, I’d rather have Schwenke if Armstead is gone)

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    That photo is way cool

    • jamfed

      Thanks man! That’s my son two years ago (prepping for the draft)…

  • Ioane

    Landing Johnson would be awesome. But why take Armstead in the 3rd if we got LJ? I would rathe us use that pick on a player like Jonathan Franklin, a Dj see ringer or an ILB. And grab. CB with our 2nd instead of Montgomery or Jenkins to beef up or D-line. Elam would also be a solid candidate. I’m hoping we trad down and net more picks.

    • jamfed

      I don’t project Armstead as a LEFT TACKLE. I see him as a Andy Levitre type of left guard, or even a right tackle. .
      A back up running back can be drafted later, or as a UDRFA. SD has three good safeties on the roster now (and I’m a big Stucky fan!). Montgomery is a very good pass rushing OLB. He could play a lot in nickle and dime formations.
      SD needs some quality D-line guys, too… they’ve lost three in the of fseason!

  • Lee

    damn. cocky much?

    • jamfed

      …no, not cocky…

      The NFL Draft is a HUGE guessing game. If I get 50% right, I’m going to VEGAS or buying lottery tickets. Everyone’s mock drafts are usually VERY wrong! Jacksonville and Kansas City have histories of BUSTING mock drafts (as they seem to draft projected 2nd round picks in the 1st round = Tyson Alualu / Tyson Jackson, etc.).

      I’m not trying to look “cocky” but confident! LOL

  • nativesandiegan

    I postulated about going to 4/3 a few weeks ago, so agreed with your articles on that. Don’t want to disappoint, but don’t think many of your positions, much less players will land. Don’t think your promises of a couple weeks ago for top 3 OT will work out for us. We’s probably need to trade w/Browns. Eagles need athletic tackle even if Peters fully recovers, but might take qb from Va-Tech. Detroit lost 2 tackles and will take Fisher (local boy). Rams need tackle and can trade ahead of us w/Cleveland or Cards (if Cards don’t take OT). Been re-thinking everything I’ve said lately and there are very good rd 2-4 O-Line (Barrett Jones C,G,or even OT, Quissenbary OT,G, or even C), rb’s (I especially like Stepfon Taylor at Stanford – saw most of their games), cb (McFadden or another), and seemingly solidILB in 5th- Nico Johnson Alabama. Barkley could go to Buffalo, but late 1st (they may trade back into 1st for him) at the earliest.
    Anyway, we’ll find out in a few hrs (but really in a couple of yrs after they actually play in NFL)
    Good luck – hope your choices work out. I gave up on my mock; too crazy of a draft with so many variables.

    • nativesandiegan

      Was really thinking rd 3-4 so didn’t include Armsted. Could trade down & still get SS Vaccaro or Elam as immediate impact player, but need to do multiple trades (Rams, then 49ers?) for it all to work out. We’ll see
