2013 NFL Mock Draft V4.0: Picks 16-23 (Gallery)
16. St. Louis Rams: Chance Warmack
One way or another offense will be addressed. If there were a legitimate receiver available he would get the nod. Since there isn’t, the o-line will get bolstered. Chance Warmack is a great value pick this late in the first round.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jesse Williams
The Steelers need to get younger on this side of the ball. Jesse Williams will rocket up the charts over the next few wee. Pittsburgh, when it’s all said and done, may actually be too low to be able to nab him.
18. Dallas Cowboys: Matt Barkley
There is only one team dumb enough to reach for Matt Barkley.
19. New York Giants: Tyler Eifert
TE, Notre Dame
Eli Manning was a little too sporadic for comfort this year. He needs a reliable tight end option; Tyler Eifert needs a good quarterback. Perfect marriage.
20. Chicago Bears: Barrett Jones
The Bears need offensive line help, especially if they want their new offensive guru head coach to start next year off on the right foot. Barrett Jones is the most versatile option available at the position.
21. Cincinnati Bengals: Alec Ogletree
Jarvis Jones obviously soaked up most of the spotlight at Georgia this year, but Alec Ogletree is an extremely talented player as well. He would instantly offer a much-needed athleticism infusion to this defensive unit.
22. St. Louis Rams: Giovanni Bernard
RB, North Carolina
The Rams need a wide receiver here, but seeing as there are no quality ones available, they’ll just have to settle for a running back who averaged over 10 yards per reception last year.
23. Minnesota Vikings: DeAndre Hopkins
The Vikings will give Christian Ponder one more chance next season. They won despite him this year (until the Joe Webb fiasco); that can’t happen again. He will get some help in the draft or via free agency, but if there isn’t noticeable improvement next season, Minnesota will look to upgrade at the quarterback position in the next draft.
