The Commish’s Top 5 Per Position on Defense For the 2013 NFL Draft
Don’t forget to party with The Commish Thursday (4/25) and Friday (4/26) at Ferg’s Sports Bar near Tropicana Field for the NFL Draft! Both nights, The Commish will be on the air live starting at 7:00.
1. Star Lotulelei – Utah
2. Sheldon Richardson – Missouri
3. Sharrif Floyd – Florida
4. Sylvester Williams – North Carolina
5. Jesse Williams – Alabama
Commish’s Comments: I like Star’s power and surprising agility. I took Richardson over Floyd because of his athleticism and ability to make plays all over the field including in the offensive’s backfield. Floyd does get good penetration, and both players will be 1st round picks. Jesse Williams compares favorably to Star Lotulelei, but will be a much cheaper price for where he gets drafted.
1. Dion Jordan – Oregon
2. Ziggy Ansah – BYU
3. Tank Carradine – Florida St.
4. Barkevious Mingo – LSU
5. Bjoern Werner – Florida St.
Commish’s Comments: Carradine probably won’t be drafted high because of a torn ACL, but if he comes back healthy, he will be a very good pass rusher. Jordan could become an elite pass rusher by putting on about 15-20 lbs.
1. Jarvis Jones – Georgia
2. Arthur Brown – Kansas St.
3. Jamie Collins – Southern Miss
4. Khaseem Greene – Rutgers
5. Sio Moore – UCONN
Commish’s Comments: The team that drafts Jarvis Jones will end up being happy.
1. Alec Ogletree – Georgia
2. Kevin Minter – LSU
3. Manti Te’o – Notre Dame
4. Jon Bostic – Florida
5. AJ Klein – Iowa St.
Commish’s Comments: Ogletree is the most athletic. Minter is the most physical and the hardest hitter. Manti Te’o is the best leader and has the best instincts. You make the pick.
1. Dee Milliner – Alabama
2. DJ Hayden – Houston
3. Xavier Rhodes – Florida St.
4. Jamar Taylor – Boise St.
5. Desmond Trufant – Washington
Commish’s Comments: I know Milliner has had a few injuries, but I still view him as the top corner who plays with a physical attitude. I’ve been on DJ Hayden for a month and a half and have said that when it is all said and done, Hayden could end up as the draft’s top corner. Rhodes is big and physical and thrives in press man coverage. Trufant might be the safest corner in the draft because of his experience and bloodlines.
1. Kenny Vaccaro – Texas
2. Eric Reid – LSU
3. Jonathan Cyprien – FIU
4. Matt Elam – Florida
5. Phillip Thomas
Commish’s Comments: Vaccaro is great in coverage, but can help in run support. Reid has a ton of experience at LSU and will be attractive as a player that can start on day 1. Cyprien has a ton of athletic ability and a big hitter.
