New 2013 NFL Mock Draft

Lots of big changes in my newest 2013 NFL Mock Draft. Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas has disappointed, so I have ruled him out at this point as an early entry and he's off the board. I have taken all my running backs out of the first round, not because I think a player like South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore isn't talented, just no in demand compared to the other talent in the draft.

NFL Mt. Rushmore-Oakland Raiders

Every NFL Franchise has it’s own pantheon of football gods. That group of players who are not only historic in terms of talent, but even more than that, these are the players who you have to talk about when you tell the story of your team. This is part of a 32 article series where I tell you who I would put among that elite group. For this, it’s Mt. Rushmore. 4 players only. The 4 heads you would carve on a mountain that would live forever as the greatest in franchise history.

Now, I don’t profess to know the history of every franchise in the league. So, I did my research. And part of that was reaching out to you fans. But if you don’t agree with the 4 guys I have selected, come find me on Twitter at www.twitter.com/nfldraftboard and let me hear what you think.

Post Super Bowl/Pre-Combine 2012 NFL draft, mock style

1. Indianapolis Colts-Andrew Luck, QB Stanford-I am not convinced that the Colts already declaring Luck as their pick isn’t a whole lot of posturing, but it’s hard to imagine anyone but Luck being the top pick, regardless of who ends up selecting here.

2. St. Louis Rams-Justin Blackmon, WR Oklahoma State-The lack of talent on this roster all over the field is disturbing. They have a handful of good players but the franchise has seemed content with mediocore talent, especially at wide receiver. Blackmon is a dominant player at his position and would be a welcome addition for young quarterback Sam Bradford.

NFL Power Rankings-Week 2

Like most seasons, this NFL season has the mix of a few really great times, a few really bad ones, and a whole bunch in the middle.

32. Kansas City Chiefs-A team ravaged with injuries and poor coaching.

31. Indianapolis Colts-Peyton Manning gets hurt and the whole team just gave up.

30. Seattle Seahawks-Worst offense in the NFL.  Pete Carroll has no talent at quarterback.

29. Carolina Panthers-Cash Newton racking up big passing yards but no W’s.

28. Miami Dolphins-Lots of offense but a defense that can’t stop a flag football team.

27. St. Louis Rams-This team lacks speed on defense and it’s offense is just too beat up to be competitive.
