Tuck: Final 2013 NFL Mock Draft

You know it could be a wild night when we still can’t confirm who the first pick in the draft will be!  In fact, this is as disorganized a draft as I can recall.  The lack of elite players makes things a real crap-shoot.

I’d expect multiple trades this evening.  I don’t try to guess the trades, but I’ll attempt to align the players where I think they’ll be picked or connect them to the team that I think will take them.  Look for teams like Oakland, Buffalo, Miami, and New Orleans to move down in the draft.  I’d expect the 49er’s and Falcons to be aggressive in trading up in the first round.  And look for QB Ryan Nassib, not pictured below, to be a target late in the first round by a team trading up from the second round.

I am predicting this will be the first draft since 1963 that a running back isn’t taken in the first round.  Jonathon Franklin and Eddie Lacey have the best shot, but it looks like the Bengals, Packers, and Colts are the only teams picking late that could use one.
