    Have a favorite NFL team? Who do you think they'll draft?

    The NFL Draft is a very tense moment for any fan. As a Jaguars fan, it rings especially true for me.
    1. Ezekiel Ansah (DE, BYU)
    2. David Amerson (CB, North Carolina St.)
    3. Matt Scott (QB, Arizona)
    4. Jamie Collins (LB, Southern Miss)
    5. Travis Kelce (TE, Cincinnati)
    6. Darius Johnson (WR, SMU)
    7. Zach Boren (FB/LB, Ohio State)

    What's your team, and who do you think they'll pick up? Nothing too unrealistic please...

    Broncos fan: When reviewing the Denver Broncos depth chart, interior defensive and offensive line, running back, wide receiver, middle linebacker and the secondary appear to be where the team currently is, or soon will be, lacking depth.   

    DT —  Kawann Short, Purdue (Round 1)

    MLB — Kevin Minter, LSU (Round 2)

    S — Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma (Round 3)

    WR — Ryan Swope, Texas A&M (Round 4)

    RB — Michael Dyer, Arkansas State (Round 5)

    CB — Nigel Malone, Kansas State (Round 5-6)

    G — Spencer Long, Nebraska (Round 5-7)

    C — Sam Schwartzstein, Stanford (Round 5-7)

      Do you think Ryan Swope will last until the 4th round? He impressed in the Combine with that speed. You better take him in the 3rd round and forget about Jefferson. I got him as a possibility for my team in the 1st round.

      Ryan Swope will probably be an early Day 2 pick. I'm thinking somewhere around 50th overall. That would be Chicago, who are in DESPERATE need at receiver after the bad news of Johnny Knox's retirement.

      I meant round 3 for Jefferson not round 1 in my comment to JThomp42. Mid-second round for Swope sounds too soon for Swope to me, but who knows, the Bears or somebody else could be in love with him.

    I'll be writing a hub entitled "Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 NFL Draft" but I won't be submitting it until about a week before the big event. You guys should do one too on your teams, and we'll see who, if anybody, gets any picks exactly right. I did such a hub last year and got one pick on the mark, 2nd round, Mike Adams. 

    There are too many things that are going to happen before the draft that prevent me from finalizing mine now. The Steelers are going to lose a bunch of players, and I doubt they will gain many.

    But here are my picks as of this moment through the first 4 rounds:

    1. Tyer Eifert, TE, Notre Dame. Nobody agrees with me on this one. Heath Miller won't be ready to play when the season starts, due to the knee surgery, and who knows when he'll be back. Eifert can play from day one, and the Steelers can run more two tight end sets when he is back. This also diminishes the need to take a WR high in the draft, especially for one like Todd Haley's dink and dunk. 

    2. Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame or Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia. One of these guys could fall to the middle of the second round, what with Manti's terrible game against Alabama and fake girlfriend and Alec's recent DUI and previous problems. 

    3. Eric Reid, S, LSU. If he's already taken, Tony Jefferson, S, Oklahoma, or Baccari Rambo, S, Georgia. Troy and Ryan Clark are getting on in years, have contract issues, and miss games.

    4. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina. RB is the toughest position to pick guys and spots in this draft. Nobody really stands out as a sure NFL thing. I'd take a chance on Lattimore. If not him, somebody else, but I'm not sure who I'd take at this point.   

    DJProfessorK, I really like Ezekiel Ansah too. Not many have him going before a couple other pass rushers, but I think he has more potential than the others, but is also more of a question mark.

      Will do.

      To me, I don't see Eifert as a game changer. I like Travis Kelce much better, as he has some serious wheels for a big tight end.

      Don't be surprised if the Steelers go after Shamarko Thomas. Good character, really fast, and a sure tackler.

      Kelce is probably a more realistic pick for the Steelers if he is there in Round 3. Same with Gavin Escobar. Sharmarko Thomas would be a good pick for the Steelers maybe in Round 5. I don't think he'll go before Round 4 at the earliest.

    Minnesota Vikings and we got some holes!
    Round 1: Sylvester Williams DT UNC- best size to speed ratio of any tackle at the combine. This assuming Rick Speilman doesn't trade back as he is known to do.
    Round 2: Deandre Hopkins WR Clemson, Good chance he is gone by now so if thats the case then maybe Justin Hunter WR Tennesee.
    Round 3: Jon Bostic ILB Florida Once again size to speed ratio is amazing.
    Round 4: Ryan Swope WR Texas A&M or if someone reaches for him maybe Cobi Hamilton WR Arkansas.
    Round 4: Jonathon Cyprian S Florida International Great hitter needs polish Minnesota usually not scared off of small school guys. But if he goes earlier than maybe Shawn Williams from Georgia need some DB help and already have a couple developmental corners on the roster.
    Round 5: Alex Carder QB Western Michigan Need to develop a back up to Ponder Joe Webbs future is at WR/KR.
    Round 7: Cornelious Washington DE Georgia.
    Round 7: Joe Madsen C West Virginia Develop a guy in case John Sullivan has issues with the microfracture surgery in the off season.

      That would be a great draft if you could score those players. No way will Jonathan Cypien or Ryan Swope last until the 4th though. I saw a mock draft today (Walter Football) where Cypien late in the 1st to the 49ers and Swope in 2nd to Broncos.
