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.

Why Ben Roethlisberger is going to win the NFL MVP

It seems like in recent years when discussing the NFL MVP, it's sort of like talking about NASCAR. The same handful of guys every week. 4 of the last 5 awards have gone to either Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, with Aaron Rogers winning it most recently. This year, I fully expect it to be Tom Brady, Aaron Rogers, with maybe some Drew Brees and Peyton Manning sprinkled in with a touch of Cam Newton on the side. But I will make the case for another quarterback. A quarterback who has won 2 Super Bowls and has just turned 30, hitting the prime of his career. That's right folks, Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is going to win this season's NFL MVP Award.

My Pittsburgh Steelers Dream 53 Man Roster (Not a Predicition)

With rookie camps in the books and all 32 NFL teams preparing for full blown training camps, it is time to take a look at the roster of my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. What I am going to offer is not a prediction of the final 53 man roster like some have done, but my ideal 53 man roster I’d love to see including who I’d place on the practice squad.


Ben Roethlisberger(Starter)
Charlie Batch
Byron Leftwich

This is a pretty obvious depth chart. Troy Smith was released, but I still like rookie Jerrod Johnson to make the practice squad.

Running Backs(4)

Isaac Redman(starter)
Chris Rainey

NFL Mt. Rushmore-Baltimore Ravens

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.
