Tuck: 2013 NFL Mock Draft #3

One week away from the NFL Draft, and things are really moving fast now.  I believe there will be trades, perhaps many, as teams jockey for position to select the player they like over the first few rounds.  I’ve just made it a policy of mine not to predict trades unless I have good information.  Just a reminder, the NFL Draft is 7 rounds, so a team’s biggest need sometimes is not addressed in the first round, so don’t freak out and call me crazy because the Bucs need a corner more than a defensive tackle or whatever.  I also expect the picks in the 20’s to be littered with players not in most mock drafts, because as I heard a NFL scout say recently, there are around 60 players  that could go in the first round.
