Denver Broncos

Positions of need: DL, RB, LB, S

Needs Analysis: The Broncos aren't hurting on paper, but defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio's 4-3 scheme could use a little help up front. Don't let the Terrance Knighton signing fool you; "Pot Roast" is uneven at best, and Denver is still in need of big-bodied tackles. Using a high pick on a running back would be an unpopular choice, but the Broncos have a genuine need. Only Willis McGahee and Ronnie Hillman are under contract after next season, and McGahee is a candidate for release.

Real Draft:
Round 1, Sylvester Williams DT
Round 2, Montee Ball RB
Round 3, Kayvon Webster CB
Round 5, Quanterus Smith DE
Round 5, Tavarres King WR
Round 6, Vinston Painter OT
Round 7, Zac Dysert QB

Mock Draft:
1.28) Menelik Watson, OT, FSU
2.58) David Amerson, CB, NCST
4.106) Montori Hughes, DT, Tenn-Martin
4.110) Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
5.141) Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
6.172) Josh Boyd, DT, Miss State
7.234) Brandon Hepburn, LB, Florida A&M

In this mock, I thought Denver did a nice job of addressing their needs while getting the right value. Landing Dwight Freeney before the draft gave them the flexibility to go for value and not reach for need. Denver reached for Ball in real life, but the value for Taylor in Round 5 here was spot on and the difference between players does not match the difference between draft slots. Taking Montori Hughes and Josh Boyd shores up the depth along the DL which was one of their main concerns. Taking Amerson in Round 2 who could project to Corner or Safety was a move that I really liked. Moreso than Kayvon Webster who Denver took in the 3rd in real life. Dobson address WR better than King, and I'm not sure what Dysert does for Denver, when they had needs at LB that they failed to address. So using their last pick in this mock was a better use of the pick than I think Denver did in real life for Round 7. Overall, very solid job that is hard to knock. Denver will be a Super Bowl contender this year.

Grade: A-
Season Prediction: 12-4


----------------------------------------------------

San Diego Chargers

Positions of need: OL, DL, CB, WR

Needs Analysis: It's a new day in San Diego, with coach Mike McCoy inheriting the mess left behind by Norv Turner and A.J. Smith. McCoy made a playoff quarterback out of Tim Tebow in Denver before overseeing Peyton Manning's comeback campaign of 2012. For his next trick, McCoy will attempt to resurrect the career of Philip Rivers. That won't be easy. Not, that is, until the Chargers form a shield of protection around Rivers, whose 47 turnovers and 79 sacks over the past two seasons can be linked directly to a wasteland of under-performing behemoths up front. General manager Tom Telesco's first draft will be judged by his ability to solve that problem. The team also could use help at safety and cornerback after struggling in pass coverage a year ago.

Real Draft:
Round 1, D.J. Fluker OT
Round 2, Manti Te'o ILB
Round 3, Keenan Allen WR
Round 5, Steve Williams CB
Round 6, Tourek Williams DE
Round 7, Brad Sorensen QB 6

Mock Draft:
Signings:
Andre Smith, RT
Sione Pouha, NT

Draft Picks:
8) Dee Milllner, CB, Alabama
45) Terron Armstead, LT, Arkansas Pine-Bluff
90) Kiko Alonso, SILB, Oregon
142) John Simon, OLB, Ohio State
145) Josh Boyce, WR, TCU
177) Zac Dysert, QB, Miami (OH)
186) Zeke Motta, SS, Notre Dame

The signing of Andre Smith was a bold move by this GM. 5 years, $55M blew every other offer out of the water, and Smith's real life contract for 3 years, $18M with the Bengals might make mock Chargers fans want to puke. But it did allow them to address other needs. However, this GM showed even more aggressiveness in the draft. Electing to trade up from #11 to #8 to land CB Dee Milliner. I applaud the move especially since the Chargers addressed NT in FA with Sione Pouha. CB was their next biggest need imo and they got the best one in the draft at a premium position. Continuing with the trenches, the Chargers added a developmental LT in Armstead with high upside. I wasn't very impressed in the way they chose to address their LB needs, but if they can improve their depth from Round 3 on, then that is the average bench mark. The best late round pick they made was Josh Boynce, imo. He is a physical receiver with soft hands with excellent body coordination for a big receiver. He could have an immediate impact. Overall, I think the Chargers did a good job addressing the trenches, but Phillips still doesn't have enough weapons around him and not taking advantage of the deep RB class is a knock for sure.

Mock Grade: B+
Season Prediction: 8-8

----------------------------------------------------

Oakland Raiders

Positions of need: DL, LB, CB, OL, S, TE, QB

Needs Analysis: If GM Reggie McKenzie had his way, the Raiders would trade out of No. 3 in a hurry. That won't be easy. If they keep the pick, addressing departures on the defensive line is a must. Richard Seymour, Desmond Bryant and Tommy Kelly have been replaced by Vance Walker, Jason Hunter and Pat Sims. That's uninspiring business. The addition of Matt Flynn tempers the need at quarterback; still, look for the Raiders to grab a signal-caller. Up front, the Raiders have a solid left tackle in Jared Veldheer, but Khalif Barnes was a disaster on the right side. Flynn is a dead man unless that gets fixed. The Raiders are a train wreck on paper. Critics are descending on McKenzie, but don't forget he inherited a steaming mess. It's going to take time to dig Oakland out from under.

Real Draft:
Round 1, D.J. Hayden CB
Round 2, Menelik Watson OT
Round 3, Sio Moore OLB
Round 4, Tyler Wilson QB
Round 6, Nick Kasa TE
Round 6, Latavius Murray RB

Round 6, Mychal Rivera TE
Round 6, Stacy McGee DT
Round 7, Brice Butler WR
Round 7, David Bass DE

Mock Draft:
1(5)- Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
3(71)- Travis Frederick, C/OG, Wisconsin*
3(72)- Bennie Logan, DT, LSU*
4(100)- Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
4(125)- Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma*
6(171)- Robert Lester, FS, Alabama
6(205)- John Boyett, SS, Oregon
7(208)- Chris Faulk, OT, LSU*
7(219)- Kwame Geathers, NT, Georgia*

One thing that jumps off to me at the bat is that the priorities that the Raiders addressed in real life didn't quite match up with what was done in this mock. That's not to say the job here was bad. Just different. I wasn't a huge fan of Oakland's trade in real life because I think they passed up on true elite talent and reached for Hayden. But here, they landed an elite player in Jordan. They will have to groom him but the potential is drooling. Frederick in the 3rd is a steal and the Raiders GM stuck with the trenches again in going with Bennie Logan in the 3rd. Love watching teams build in the trenches. However, I don't think OT was properly addressed with Chris Faulk, even though the value was good. They didn't find a way to draft a CB which was glaring. LB was deep and it was a need, so I didn't understand the emphasis that was put on underwhelming players like Robert Lester and John Boyett. Too much reliance is being put on Matt Flynn here. I like how OAK found a way to land Tyler Wilson in real life. But I like the weapons Flynn would have in Kelce and Stills better than what the Raiders did in reality. Overall, mixed opinions. I think needs could've been addressed better, but some solid value was still found. The Raiders have made improvements from their 4-12 season in 2012, but will remain in the rebuilding mode again this year.

Grade: A-
Season Prediction: 7-9



----------------------------------------------------


Kansas City Chiefs

Positions of need: OL, DL, S, LB, QB

Needs Analysis: Chiefs fans have a right to whine about the franchise's star-crossed timing. One year ago, Kansas City at No. 1 would have had its pick of Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III. Instead, the Chiefs appear destined to select an offensive tackle. The Chiefs might also be in the market for another tackle post-draft if the disgruntled Branden Albert is shopped. On defense, the team still needs a more reliable free safety than Kendrick Lewis across from Eric Berry. At linebacker, the death of Jovan Belcher leaves this group with a need on the inside.

Real Draft:
Round 1, Eric Fisher OT
Round 3, Travis Kelce TE

Round 3, Knile Davis RB
Round 4, Nico Johnson ILB
Round 5, Sanders Commings
Round 6, Eric Kush C
Round 6, Braden Wilson FB
Round 7, Mike Catapano DE

Mock Draft:
1. OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
1 (63). QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas
34 (96). CB BW Webb, William & Mary
2 (99). WR Marquise Goodwin, Texas
1 (134). LB Nico Johnson, Alabama
2 (170). ATH Lawrence Okoye, Great Britain
36 (204). DE Walter Stewart, Cincinnati
1 (207). SS Don Jones, Arkansas St.

UDFA:
Luke Ingram : LS : Hawaii
Lonnie Pryor : FB : Florida State
Tommy Bohanon : FB : Wake Forest
Brad Wing : P : LSU
Cierre Wood : RB : Notre Dame
Josh Hill : TE : Idaho State
Edmund Kugbila : OG : Valdosta State

Even though it was the #1 overall pick, the choice was not an easy one to make so props for nailing the Fisher selection. Tyler Wilson wasn't as much of a value pick here as it would've been for KC in real life, but I am a fan of Wilson so brownie points there. I didn't understand why KC didn't take a flier on a guy in the draft, but they got a coup with Tyler Bray in UDFA! BW Webb has excellent ball skills and swag and taking him in the 3rd didn't set off any alarms. Completely nailed it with Nico Johnson to the Chiefs, and even got him at better value than the Chiefs did in real life. Impressive! If I had to make criticisms on this mock, I would have to say that the Goodwin pick didn't really impress me. I thought the Chiefs should've look at TE, S or DL over taking a guy who doesn't offer that much more over Donnie Avery who the Chiefs already have. Alex Smith relied heavily upon his TE in SF, and Tony Moeaki doesn't quite make me feel good about being his safety blanket. Finishing the draft with some high upside guys (some I honestly don't know about - Stewart/Jones) seemed fine as late round picks. I really thought the UDFA group was the best of any team in this mock. But doing nothing in FA hurt them at the start. Plus, not having a 2nd rounder hurts this grade a smidge. I see one immediate starter, and maybe 3 future starters down the line. Things are looking better for KC, but let's be real... they still have a long road ahead of them.

Grade: B+
Season Prediction: 5-11
