2013 NFL Draft:

Round 1:
1. Kansas City: Ezekiel 'Ziggy' Ansah DE Brigham Young
Coinciding Ansah a Reach, Dorsey & Reid select the most gifted athlete with perennial All Pro upside. First flashed during the Notre Dame game. When lined up with his hand in the dirt, displayed uncanny twitchiness, tremendous power, & a relentless motor. Playing End in BYUs 3-4, showed ability to stack & shed with powerful hand use. Some will argue he lacks instincts. Against Boise, immediately recognized fake bunt & made crucial stop. Against Hawaii, Ran a twist out of a 2 point stance, hit the Quarterback & got to his feet to recover the ball for a TD. Watching the Poinsettia Bowl, San Diego State attempted to double team him or run opposite. On Van Noy's 4th Quarter Touchdown, Ansah stunts with tremendous quickness to provide interior pressure. In 2-3 steps, he moved from an outside tackle shade to rushing up the A-Gap.

Ansah played RE in the Cougars base 3-4 & moved to the left side to rush the QB out of a two point stance at times. Batted balls constantly, showing skills to make interceptions off caused deflections. Force against the run game, quickly strafing down line of scrimmage to make tackles. Converted Speed to Power.

Jackle & Hyde- Struggled during Senior Bowl Practices & dominated the Game. When pinning his ears back, has the instincts & assets to takeover football games. At the combine, measurable & times equaled or surpassed Aldon Smith's. Chiefs will utilize Ansah as a situational pass rusher & rotational 5-technique in year 1. STs Coordinator Dave Toub will employ Ansah the way he did Israel Idonije for years in Chicago to block Kicks. In due time & with proper development could be the player that gets Andy Reid his Super Bowl Ring.

The contracts impact rushers garner on the open market are astronomical. Even role players- Paul Kruger's 5 Year 40.5 M deal speaks to the market. With a premium on edge rushers, teams will invest heavily in the position. Two years ago, I believed J.J. Watt should be selected first overall. Now, I do not mean to say I knew he'd be the type of player he has become. Margus Hunt has the measurables of Watt, but simply lacks the instincts. Ansah has the frame to become a Watt type base end or contribute in a multifaceted role the way Aldon Smith does in SF. A Right Tackle might improve the OL, but he wont change the course of the Chiefs Franchise. Ansah has that potential.

2. Jacksonville: Sharrif Floyd DT Florida
Shahid Khan has quickly learned the league since purchasing the Jaguars. The hiring of GM David Caldwell & HC Gus Bradley speaks to his longterm vision for the Franchise. Despite two difficult years, Blaine Gabbert will be given another opportunity to prove he's the longterm answer. Hiring a Defensive Minded Coach, Bradley will work with Caldwell to begin building a 4-3 Under One-Gap Attacking Defense.

On the Defensive Line, an infusion of talent is vital. In Year 1, the new regime commits to fixing the Front 7. While UFA Targets could help catalyze the transition, a dynamic 3-technique Defensive Tackle is vital. Floyd shows a quick first step that he uses to penetrate & collapse opponents backfields. Playing in Dan Quinn's scheme at Florida, was often asked to two gap & played end earlier in his career. When Jaye Howard (Selected by Seahawks 4th Round 2012) departed, Floyd became the featured player on the interior, earning 1st Team All SEC Accolades. In this scheme, the 3-tech should be your premier interior pass rusher & Floyd has the makings of that type of player.

Caldwell & Bradley has combed over the roster & must improve the pass rush to begin strengthening the unit. 2012 2nd Rounder Andre Branch will be given the first opportunity at the LEO position, a spot Jason Babin, Jeremy Mincey or potentially Cliff Avril also should be considered. On the opposite side, Tyson Alualu & C.J. Mosley will compete with a UFA signing of two. While players fitting the scheme can be added via UFA, the group simply lacks a 4-3 3-technique with Floyd's upside.

3. Oakland: Luke Joeckel OT Texas A&M
Reggie McKenzie inherited a difficult situation. After years of missing on Top 10 Selections, the Raiders find themselves picking 3rd Overall with the cupboard bare. McKenzie might feel pressure from Management to select a new Face of the Franchise, as Amy Trask recently announced the team will reduce seating capacity to prevent blackouts. McKenzie won't budge.

Dennis Allen hired his buddy Greg Knapp who implemented an offense based on football ideology rather than maximizing the talents of his personnel. Preaching patience, Reggie McKenzie made the wise move & fired Knapp after the team averaged 18.1 PPG. New Offensive Coordinator Greg Olson wont pigeon hole himself, but the hiring of Tony Sparano indicates a return to a power man blocking gap scheme.

Luke Joeckel & Eric Fisher are the two top tackles. Fisher is the better athlete & a more powerful run blocker. Joeckel has excelled at multiple splits- in conventional pass protection for Ryan Tannehill & in widened splits with Manziel. This experience is valuable should Olson utilize Pryor in some capacity. Joeckel shows the ability to kick-slide against speed rushers while maintaining proper weight distribution, can re-anchor when jolted & is technically sound playing with natural knee bend. Tony Sparano evaluates Fisher & Joeckel. While seeing more upside in Fisher, the degree to which Joeckel's hand placement is superior is significant.

For multiple years, Khalif Barnes has been a liability at Right Tackle. Veldheer (Extension) shifts to Right Tackle & Joeckel slides in at Left Tackle from day 1. A safe pick & building block for the future.

4. Philadelphia: Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan
Eagles VP of Player Personnel Tom Gamble arrives in Philadelphia after spending 7 years in San Francisco. Key to the 49ers turnaround was investing heavily in offensive linemen. With so many aspects of Chip Kelly's scheme a mystery, Fisher provides an immediate starting Tackle that fits both man & zone schemes. With Jason Peters returning from a ruptured achilles tendon, he could be a June 1st Cut saving 10.458 M of Cap Space. Even if he returns & returns to All Pro Form, he's on the wrong side of the 30 year threshold.

Elite size for the position with long arms & the frame to add additional weight. A tremendous athlete, a natural in pass protection & a powerful run blocker that consistently finishes his blocks. Showed tremendous ability to re-anchor throughout the Senior Bowl Week. Tremendous ability to get to the second level, Fisher provides an immediate upgrade at Right Tackle & longterm solution at Left Tackle when called upon.

5. Detroit: Björn Werner DE Florida State
Off a disappointing 4-12 season, the Mayhew-Schwartz regime enters an offseason critical to ensuring their long-term employment with the Lions. Patient Ownership gave the tandem one more shot in an effort to maintain continuity, but the hiring of former Broncos GM Brian Xanders puts in place a logical GM replacement.

Mayhew offered Cliff Avril a longterm deal which he turned down, and is testing the market after playing under the Franchise Tender in 2012. After releasing KVB & with Lawrence Jackson a UFA, the Lions simply lack a starter at left end. Werner excels by utilizing his get-off & tremendous leverage to apply pressure. Excels in one-on-one situations, which he will find aplenty given the two interior menaces. Immediately contributes at a vital position that will be difficult to address via Free Agency.

6. Cleveland: Xavier Rhodes CB Florida State
New Browns regime utilized available cap space to sign Paul Kruger & Desmond Bryant- two moves that fit the Lombardi mold of strengthening the Front 7. With significant cap space remaining, the Browns could sign a CB in Free Agency & enter April with the ability to select the BAP. At 6, Xavier Rhodes is the best available player & an ideal scheme fit for Ray Horton's aggressive Defense.

Horton's scheme is built on attacking. It utilizes nickel packages with the safety in the box, A-Gap 'Sugar' Blitzing, Overload blitzes & two-gap DL play. To allow this D to succeed, Horton requires physical press corners with man coverage abilities. Rhodes has the length, size & speed to excel in this scheme. While there are multiple Corners in this class that could find success in Off-Man or Zone schemes, the class lacks true press corners with man coverage abilities. It's not just this draft class, it's an ability that is highly coveted yet difficult to find. Rhodes can matchup with bigger physical wideouts & run with elite speedsters. He's an immense talent that converted from WR. Shows natural ball skills, and will lay a lick. Fits the Horton mold of "Big Guys that Can Run, Small Guys that Can Hit."

When Joe Haden was injured last season, the Browns secondary was in shambles. The Bill Parcells one said only a finite amount of 300 Pound men that are Athletes exist on the planet. Today, that same mantra can be applied to man-style press corners. With the addition of Rhodes, the Browns have two such players as building blocks for their aggressive Defense.

7. Arizona: Dion Jordan DE Oregon
In the 2003 Draft, the Cardinals traded the 6th Pick to New Orleans in exchange for 2 First Rounders. With those selections, they selected WR Bryant Johnson & LB Calvin Pace. In a recent interview with new GM Steve Keim, he explicitly mentioned Terrell Suggs & the importance of edge rushers in the NFL today. With the 3 rotational OLBs combining for 12 sacks in 2012, the lack of a dynamic edge rusher is evident.

Suggs was a hometown prospect from nearby Arizona State. New GM Steve Keim has been with the Cardinals for 15 seasons. In Jordan who blew up the combine, he sees the next Terrell Suggs. An explosive athlete, Jordan converted from Tight End at Oregon & became the flash player on the Ducks Defense. First step quickness, the frame to add additional weight & versatility make him the ideal fit. At Oregon, he was asked to drop into "Ameba" coverage as a single high safety, cover Slot WRs, Drop into Zones, & cover Tight Ends. To see an athlete with this size & length adequately contribute in those capacities is beyond impressive. Fearing he will make the same mistake they did in 2003, Keim nabs the Chandler Arizona prospect as the first selection of his Regime.

8. Buffalo: Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee
Since Buddy Nix took the reigns, the Bills have consistently sought to add dynamic weapons with speed to the Offense. The decision to not tender contract offers to RFAs Donald Jones & David Nelson leaves a major void at Wide Receiver. Assistant GM Doug Whaley served as Pittsburgh's Pro Scouting Director when the team selected Mike Wallace. In Patterson, the Bills brass sees a similar player.

JUCO Transfer, Patterson burst onto the scene showing immense playmaking ability. Consistently separates from coverage, is sensational after the catch in the open field & shows elite body control adjusting to the ball in the air. Has the speed to be a vertical threat to take the top off Defenses. Detractors will argue Patterson is inexperienced as a Route Runner, but Mike Wallace is no precise runner of the route tree. The decision to not tender two productive players provides evidence of the concerted effort of the team to get faster on the edges. An offense featuring Steve Johnson, C.J. Spiller & Patterson presents matchup problems for defenses on a weekly basis. All 3 are threats to take it the distance on any snap, & adding that element to this Offense will pay dividends.

9. New York Jets: Tavon Austin WR West Virginia
New GM John Idzik arrives from Seattle, a Franchise that has placed tremendous importance on surrounding the Quarterback with dangerous playmakers. Austin is a dynamic playmaker that can simply do it all. Despite being diminutive in stature, Austin has elite speed & acceleration combined with elusiveness in the open field. Jets fans might argue Kerley is a quality slot WR, but Austin's talent will immediately provide Mark Sanchez with a player that can take it the distance after the catch.

Rex Ryan recognizes keeping his job requires improving the offense. Despite evident needs on the Defensive side of the ball, we all know Rex to be cocky & brash. He truly believes he can coach Anybody & turnout a top 5 Defense. That's assuming the offense scores enough points to not require perfection & does not turn the ball over. With Austin, Marty Morhinweg gets a player that will immediately contribute in multiple capacities.

10. Tennessee: Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma
Owner Bud Adams reason for firing Mike Reinfeldt was never clarified or examined. Some contend it was because the team didn't land Peyton Manning, but the more practical view is somebody was held accountable for the Jake Locker selection. After two stagnant years of development, his accuracy issues are still a major concern. Given one more year, the Titans pass on Geno Smith despite voices inside the organization beating the table for the Mountaineer.

David Stewart broke his right leg in December & will be 31 when the 2013 campaign commences. Lane Johnson is a tremendous talent that shows elite athleticism & tremendous upside. After converting from Quarterback, the development over the past few seasons is simply astonishing. You turn on the A&M Tape & see Johnson simply dominate Damontre Moore from the opening whistle. With Stewart & Michael Roos being stalwarts for so many years in Tennessee, this selection continues the inevitable overhaul of the line. Johnson will compete at RG in Year 1 or David Stewart/Roos could be released. Looking for a value selection, the Titans grab a player that will shore up the Left Tackle position for the next decade.

11. San Diego: DeMarcus 'Dee' Milliner CB Alabama
Tom Telesco & Mike McCoy have prioritized protecting Philip Rivers. New OL Coach Joe D'Alessandris showed a knack for developing quality starters during his tenure in Buffalo. This mock indicates that if the Chargers covet Lane Johnson, moving ahead of Tennessee might be necessary. The Titans were rumored to be interested at the Senior Bowl after meeting with Lane, & makes sense from a longterm vantage point. If the Chargers do not land Lane, D'Alessandris will beat the table for Chance Warmack- who he compares to former pupil Brian Waters.

Ultimately, Telesco & McCoy envision Milliner as the vital addition to their secondary. He's a talented corner that displayed athleticism above expectations at the combine. Well-versed in a combination of coverages, the UFA statuses of Quentin Jammer & Antoine Cason make adding an instant starter critical. Despite claiming Johnny Patrick off waivers, the Chargers envision a combination of Milliner & Gilchrist at Corner in the future.

12. Miami: Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia
Jeff Ireland might consider trading up to land Milliner given the expected departure of Sean Smith, but staying at 12- the Dolphins add the top player on their entire Draft Board. Coached by Todd Grantham, Jones is next in the longline of Georgia pass rushers. Teams across the league passed on Chiefs LB Justin Houston due to testing positive for illicit substances at the Combine, & Ireland won't make that mistake over less than ideal medicals.

Jones is a true competitor that has overcome adversity to become the most dominant player in the SEC this past season. Accumulating 28 Sacks & 45.5 TFL in two seasons is beyond impressive. Converts speed to power with an explosive first step. Natural instincts, uses hands effectively with multiple counter moves & is a solid tackler.

Beyond medical, Jones struggles setting the edge in the 3-4. Lack of ideal size leads to him overrunning plays in an effort to turn action inside to flow. In Kevin Coyle's 4-3 which is constantly adapting & flexible, Jones will be utilized in multiple capacities. Jones complements Ellerbe & Wheeler with his versatility, & the trio forms one of the most dynamic 4-3 LB corps in the league today.

13. Tampa Bay: Barkevious Mingo DE LSU
Mark Dominik & Greg Schiano have prioritized addressing the secondary via UFA, allowing Michael Bennett & Roy Miller to test FA Waters without new deals. Even if both players back in the fold, the Bucs will look to their board & address Defensive End. Mingo is a lanky & long end that will form an ideal complement opposite Bennett. Displays the elite first step teams covet & the top one in the class. Good length, elite short area quickness, & relentless in pursuit.

Prior to Schiano's arrival, the team selected (DEs Adrian Clayborn & Da'Quan Bowers) & (DTs Gerald McCoy & Brian Price) in back-to-back drafts. Only Gerald McCoy has become an impact players, and he's one of the top 3-techniques in the game. The issue with the two Defensive Ends was they lacked length & explosiveness. When you look at Mingo's combine, the numbers are almost identical to Von Millers. That type of explosiveness at Right End will be a valued addition to the Bucs young Defense.

14. Carolina: Sheldon Richardson DT Missouri
New GM Dave Gettleman inherited a precarious financial situation. Laughing at the cap issues, he merely saw complete misallocation of resources. In 2012, the Panthers allocated 15.2% of Cap Space to Running Backs & 16.03% to LBs, respectively. In the Panthers week 4 loss to Atlanta, Luke Kuechly was coming off the field in nickel packages! Using this amount of resources on non-premium positions, Marty Hurney addressed DT with aging veterans Ron & Dwan Edwards.

With Gettleman arriving from the Giants, he will stick to his Draft Board & Select players at Premium Positions. Richardson could arguably rival Sharrif Floyd for the top 3-technique DT in the draft. A player reminiscent of Tommie Harris, has the game to collapse the pocket with speed or power. Instantly upgrades the weakest link of the Front 7 with a player that will immediately contribute.

15. New Orleans: Desmond Trufant CB Washington
Mickey Loomis & Sean Payton are out of touch with reality. After surrendering 260 YPG passing in 2011, the Defense regressed to 292.6 Yards in 2012, allowing 31 TDs in the process. Clearly the strength of the Saints is the dynamic offense, but improving the Defense is vital. Scheme Shift won't fix the glaring problems.

Yesterday's signing of Robert Ayers continues to neglect the glaring issue. The release of Johnny Patrick, an affordable CB who could compete in camp continues to raise questions. Ultimately, the Saints have major weaknesses in their secondary. Rather than addressing these needs last offseason, the team threw money at David Hawthorne (5 Years 19.0 M) & Curtis Lofton (5 Years 27.5 M). Now shifting towards the Rob Ryan system, the team will desperately need to find capable man style corners. I'm not a huge DesTru in man coverage, but the Saints will see a scheme fit that's confident & athletic. I feel he'd excel in a zone scheme, but he wont have that opportunity in NO, as Rob Ryan lacks any zone coverages in his playbook. Sink or Swim- Have fun with Julio & V-Jax. Sink or Swim Kid, You're in the Game.

16. St. Louis: Chance Warmack OG Alabama
Jeff Fisher & Les Snead have added real talent to the roster & the team gave divisional foes a major challenge in 2012. Continuing to upgrade in the trenches, it's time to add a young prospect after years of UFA Veteran signings. Question is the direction of OL Coach Paul Bodreau's scheme, but the rumored interest in Jake Long indicates man blocking will be featured in 2013. It's the ideal fit schematically for the Air Coryell offense Brian Schottenheimer is implementing on Offense.

Discussion didn't emerge following the Combine, but Warmack's 40 (5.49) led to a subtle fall down draft boards. Not the athlete some anticipated, but on tape a Pro Bowl Caliber guard that consistently generates movement & comfortable in pass protection. 3 Year Starter, displays refined footwork & technique in both facets of his game. Guars are a bit of a luxury pick. Won't instantly impact a roster & thats why they fall come draft day. For a team with 2 first rounders & with the WRs they covet off the board, the Rams add the talented Bama Guard to solidify the interior.

17. Pittsburgh: Manti Te'o ILB Notre Dame
Kevin Colbert & the Steelers have done a fabulous job over the years drafting talented football players that fit the Steeler mold. The offseason sagas won't distract this veteran group from the tape & projecting the prospect in their 3-4 Fire-Zone scheme.

Resigning Larry Foote who will turn 33 in June is a stopgap solution. Since James Farrior's departure, Larry Foote has manned the Strongside-Inside "Buck" Linebacker position. Stevenson Sylvester spent last offseason learning the position, but did not make an impact in 2012. Responsible for making the Defensive Calls, the Buck is the leader of the Defense. Te'o's limited athleticism at the Combine won't be a concern in the scheme, as the Buck must take on blockers including Guards, shed & continue to flow to the football. Essentially a small mobile linemen against the run, Te'o fits the requisite qualifications ideally.

18. Dallas: Justin Hunter WR Tennessee
Jerry Jones is tied to Tony Romo longterm & I anticipate an extension being worked out during Camp. After considering JOnathan Cooper here, Jerry remembers he hired Bill Callahan to mold an Offensive Line without investing heavily in players besides Tyron Smith. Giving Quarterbacks weapons pays dividends. New WR Coach Derek Dooley raves about Hunter's practice habits, leadership ability, & game-breaking talent.

Rebounding from 2011 Injury, the glimpses Hunter showed in 2012 merely scratched the surface of immense potential. Besides Dez Bryant, the corps lacks a gamebreaker. Dwayne Harris has failed to materialize into a consistent playmaker & seeing Beasley in the slot is a sight for sore eyes. Hunter is blessed with tremendous size, a huge catching radius & vertical speed. The combination of Hunter & Bryant creates an imposing duo rivaling the Falcons & instantly shifts Miles Austin into the slot where he excels.

19. New York Giants: Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame
After Hakeem Nicks' injury Week 2 vs. Tampa Bay, Giants struggled with injuries (Hixon) & inexperience (Jernigan & Randle) to find consistency on offense. The struggles were partly due to poor pass protection which was magnified by Sean Locklear's injury, but also the lack of a quality Tight End. Jerry Reese & Giants Brass had no intention of retaining Martellus Bennett. The deal he was handed by the Chicago Bears fails to recognizing deficiencies.

Nicks was a top 5 WR in the game during the 2011 Playoff Run, providing a threat to take the top of Defenses on any given play. The Giants drafted Rueben Randle to provide another vertical complement opposite the oft-injured Nicks, with Victor Cruz in the Slot. The other main issue was Bennett, who provided a capable inline blocker & was a capable of Running Digs & Outs. In the Cincinnati game, the Bengals showed lots of Single High & Bracketed Cruz in Coverage. This proved problematic, as the Giants offense under Gilbride is based on route adjustments & option routes. Providing a blueprint, other Defenses rolled up safeties to create traffic in between the hashes.

Eifert is not the athlete of Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham. That being said, he's capable of stretching Defenses vertically & defeating Cover 3 & Man Coverage. Too big for most safeties & too fast for Linebackers. His best route is the Seam, which was Bennett's glaring weakness. He displays tremendous body control, soft hands & the mental capacity to learn the nuances of the Giants Option Route offense. By adding the Tight End, the Giants force Safeties to be conscious of the vertical threat. At 6-5 1/2 250 Pounds, Eifert improved throughout his career as an inline blocker. To fit Mike Pope's position group & the scheme, Eifert will have to prove he can set the edge, which he does on tape.

JR doesn't like selecting a non-premium position without elite upside in Round 1, but beyond Eifert- the class lacks an immediate impact Tight End. With Eifert in the fold & adding a RT in the FA process (Barry Richardson), the Giants have fixed the holes on Offense in their path towards consistent high octane output.

20. Chicago: Jonathan Banks CB Mississippi State
Phil Emery faces a 2014 offseason loaded with questions. Beyond Jay Cutler becoming a UFA, the entire starting secondary will be eligible for UFA. Retaining Peanut & Jennings based on 2012 seems logical, but keeping both could be difficult with cap constraints. Banks provides tremendous value at 20. Having addressed the glaring needs at Left Tackle & Tight End, the Bears enter the draft with the flexibility to select the BAP on their Board. The Thorpe Award Winner is a new-age corner blessed with tremendous length, physicality & is an ideal fit for a Cover-2 based scheme. Also can play Press Coverage as the scheme adapts under Mel Tucker, Banks is the type of Corner that can matchup with imposing Wideouts. Plus, Banks & Cutler share an Agent so working out his rookie deal provides the first formal meeting with Bus Cook to begin discussion Cutler's longterm future in Chi Town.

21. Cincinnati: Arthur Brown OLB Kansas State
Owner & GM Mike Brown in a collaborative effort with Marvin Lewis have made tremendous Personnel decisions over the past few years. With multiple UFA Linebackers, it appears Rey Maualuga won't be back in 2013. Finding an upgrade in Round 1, Brown is a rangy backer that displays tremendous instincts, coverage skills resembling a safety & is a consistent tackler. Ideal option to flank Burfict, will instantly add speed to the Defense as an instantaneous DROY candidate.

22. St. Louis (From Washington): Kenny Vaccaro S Texas
After adding Warmack at 16, the Rams pass on the available Wide Receivers for their top rated safety in the class. Vaccaro had a rough combine showing speed wise, but is an instinctive safety that excels in zone coverage on the backend. In Man, can cover Tight Ends & Slot Wide Receivers. Well versed in Texas Two-Read Defense & a similar prospect to Titans Michael Griffin. A passionate player that can instantly provide an upgrade at the safety position.

23. Minnesota: Geno Smith QB West Virginia
Percy Harvin's disparaging remarks regarding Christian Ponder on his way out of town aren't just a malcontent blowing off steam. They are genuine critiques of a player that simply lacks the physical tools to be a quality Quarterback in the league today. Entering the league, Ponder has major question marks about the elbow & shoulder in his throwing arm. Missing the Playoff Game in Lambeau must have lost him credibility in the locker room.

The lack of arm strength translates onto the field. Adrian Peterson deserves the MVP because he consistently ran against 8-9 man boxes. Safeties were pressed up towards the line, as they did not fear any element of a deep passing game. While his accuracy improve in Year 2, the 6.08% YPA was a paltry figure. Ponder is a nice young guy & likely a hard worker, but Geno Smith is too much value to pass on at 23.

Rick Spielman was promoted to General Manager on January 3, 2012. The VP of Player Personnel since 2006, he was responsible for selecting Ponder 12th overall. That being said, General Managers that refuse to admit mistakes get axed. Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave worked in the same capacity with the Jaguars from 2003-2004. After Shack Harris selected Byron Leftwich 7th overall in 2003, he passed on Ben Roethlisberger in favor of Reggie Williams in next years draft.

With the new rookie wage scale, the Vikings will guarantee $ 12-15 million over 5 Years to Geno Smith. Financially, the move is not prohibitive & football wise it simply makes sense. Geno Smith has the arm strength, athleticism & intangibles to be a major success.

24. Indianapolis: Damontre Moore DE Texas A&M
After adding talent to the Offense in last years Draft & supplementing the offensive line via UFA, the Colts move onto the Defense where Chuck Pagano must be anxious to begin the 3-4 makeover. With Star off the board due to medicals, the Colts consider multiple players at 24. Ultimately, I expect a trade down here. A team will be looking to move up to grab a Quarterback & lock him into a 5 Year Deal. However, standing put requires an evaluation of Ogletree & Moore.

Entire Colts Staff attended Moore's Pro Day & Grigson finds Top 10 value 24th overall. Moore disappeared at times this past season, but flashes the ability to be an exceptional 3-4 edge rusher. Showed scheme versatility at 4-3 end in 2012, but ideally suited for the 3-4 position. Long Arms, projectable frame & plays faster than Combine times would indicate. Will not be handed anything in Indianapolis, forced to compete with Erik Walden to start opposite Robert Mathis. Worth noting he's still just 20 years old. Maturity question marks exist, but a veteran presence like Robert Mathis will provide a tremendous role model. Could end up being the steal of the draft.

25. Minnesota (From Seattle): DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson
Star is off the board due to medicals. After the tragic death of Korey Stringer, the Vikings wont risk selecting a player with a major heart condition. With only slot receivers on the roster, the team must find an outside option that can contribute in the intermediate passing game immediately. Even if a Veteran UFA is signed, the need is still significant come April.

Hopkins emerged from Sammy Watkin's shadow and became the most complete Wideout at Clemson this past fall. Measurables in terms of timed speed are decent, but it's the body control, exceptional route running, after the catch physicality & production that attracts the Vikings. Will immediately contribute. Breaks from last years mid-round selections to nab an early contributor.

26. Green Bay: Star Lotulelei DT Utah
Ted Thompson faces two defensive building blocks nearing Free Agency. Clay Matthews III will be eligible following 2013 & B.J. Raji the next offseason. Given the longterm contract Aaron Rodgers will command, retaining both players longterm will prove exceedingly difficult. Retaining Matthews should be the priority.

Off many teams boards due to medical, Ted Thompson finds a value selection at 26. Lands top 10 talent towards the bottom half of Round 1. I don't believe the issues are career ending, and many teams are just being cautious come draft day. A prototypical 3-4 End in the Haloti Ngata mold, can add weight to play nose if required. Explosiveness is slightly overrated, but he simply manhandles guards. Shows rare agility for a man his size, gets off blocks & consistently defeats double teams. A high character individual. Provides an instant run stopping force at End & gives Thompson flexibility as he sorts out the future of B.J. Raji.

27. Houston: Jonathan Cooper OG North Carolina
Salary Cap concerns are piling up in Houston. Wade Smith will be eligible for UFA following 2013 & recently drafted Guards (Caldwell, Brandon Brooks & Ben Jones) have failed to provide stellar play or simply don't fit the scheme. Cooper is a prototypical ZBS OG that shows tremendous feet, the ability to play with consistent leverage & the athleticism Reach & Run. Brooks Size & Caldwell being a Bama guy (Man Blocking) never made logical sense. In contrast, Cooper transitioned to a Zone Scheme at UNC in 2012 & the results were tremendous. A 4 year starter at UNC, will instantly man one of the Guard Spots to upgrade the interior.

28. Denver: Alec Ogltree MLB Georgia
Beyond Wesley Woodyard, the Broncos Linebacking corps lacks a quality starter. Keith Brooking manning the middle is clearly not worth considering in 2013. Elway has shown a knack for upgrade the necessary spots in prudent ways. After seeing the contracts Philip Wheeler & Dannel Ellerbe signed in UFA, selecting Ogletree & locking him in at 5 Years 8 Million fully guaranteed is a complete bargain.

John Fox is onboard with the selection, a player with real similarities to Jonathan Beason who he selected in Carolina. Converted safety, shows great speed, the ability to hold up in coverage & is a tremendous tackler. The off the field & maturity issues will be addressed by a Veteran locker room. Potential to be a Pro Bowl Linebacker & will make splash plays on Special Teams & on Defense immediately.

29. New England: Margus Hunt DE SMU
Bill Belichick covets versatility on his Defense. Week 16 in Jacksonville, he utilized numerous 4-3 Under looks, the widespread trend across the league. Moving away from the traditional 3-4 Two Gap Scheme, Bellichick is trying to maximize Wilfork by moving him off the nose. After adding Chandler Jones who showed flashes, the Patriots still need a dynamic Defensive Linemen. Hunt is raw, but has the measurables comparable to J.J. Watt.

Belichick sees a smart kid thats hungary to improve & is a student of the game. Type of player you get on the field immediately on Core Special Teams & he might block a few kicks for you. Bring him along slowly & practice time will dictate when he's ready for a prominent role in the Defense. Boom-Bust Prospect thats not the Patriots conventional route, but at this point Hunt is the loan player remaining that could be the longterm elite player the Defense has lacked for multiple years.

30. Atlanta: Logan Ryan CB Rutgers
After releasing Dunta Robinson, Asante Samuel remains the loan starting caliber CB in the fold for 2013. Even if Grimes is retained or a veteran FA is signed, Logan Ryan is the selection. I'm exceptionally high on Ryan, whose a physical & active corner with fluid hips. Physical tackler that can play in both man & zone schemes. Needs to refine technique, but thats common for underclassmen. At his best near the line of scrimmage in press coverage, mirrors receivers on the field & delivers the big hit (94 Tackles in 2012). Lofty comparison, but I see potential Darrelle Revis.

31. San Francisco: Matt Barkley QB USC
Last years 31st Overall Pick Doug Martin signed a 4 Years 6.787 M (5.471 M Guaranteed) deal. The 49ers select Barkley in Round 1, which per the term CBA allows a 4 Year Deal with a 5th Year option. For a team looking to land it's Franchise QB, this added year at an affordable cap figure is a bonus. The 49ers can Trade Barkley prior to the Drafts Conclusion. If no deal is brokered (Unlikely), the 49ers can sign him to a comparable deal to Doug Martin.

The 49ers will hold an auction for Barkley'vs Services. The goal will be to lock up a 2014 1st Rounder & potentially additional selections and/or picks. Barkley lacks the elite arm strength, but is experienced, accurate & a tremendous student of the game. 49ers would look at it this way- If we cannot get a 1st in 2014, we'll sign him to a 4 Year 6.785 M deal to be our backup. After one year in Harbaugh's system, his price tag in a trade could increase. Come to think of it, would a team give more in terms of picks after a year of development under Harbaugh's tutelage?

As evidenced by the Alex Smith trade & the glut of picks the team has in 2013, the 49ers envision themselves as operators in the Belichick New England mold. In this league, Quarterbacks are the ultimate commodities. With Kaepernick's 2013 Cap Figure 1.397 M, Barkley's at 31 would be roughly 1.6 M. So if a team isn't willing to pony up a 2014 1st Rounder, the contract isn't prohibitive to keeping both on the roster.

32. Baltimore: D.J. Fluker OT Alabama
Youth movement at tackle starts with Fluker, the talented Tide Right Tackle that has tremendous length, a physical run blocking style & the ability to hold up in pass protection. Ozzie loves his Alabama guys & Fluker is an immense talent that could be given a shot at Left Tackle when the Oher experiment expires.
Round 2:
33. Jacksonville: Corey Lemonier DE Auburn
Provides versatility in the 4-3 Under. Tremendous athleticism displayed at the combine makes him a fit either battling Andre Branch at LEO or at the SAM LB position. Jaguars fans will fear Lemonier is the reincarnation of Quentin Groves, but he's a more explosive player that excels in space. A twitchy athlete that has the pass rush repertoire to translate with proper coaching.

34. San Francisco (From Kansas City): Da'Rick Rogers WR Tennessee Tech
Da'Rick Rogers & Justin Hunter entered the Tennessee Program led by Lane Kiffin. Both were sold on the prospect of being developed into Calvin Johnson type wide receivers. Rogers was an Atlanta, Georgia product that wanted to transfer to Georgia to play for his hometown Bulldogs. New HC Derek Dooley refused to grant him a release from his scholarship. For multiple years, Rogers battled with Dooley & position coaches. Was dismissed from the team & grew up in year at Tennessee Tech. Had a tremendous year at Tennessee Tech & displayed athleticism comparable to the other Vols receivers at the Combine. The SEC's leading receiver in 2011, he consistently creates separation, plays with a physical style & has the speed to be a vertical complement to Crabtree in the Offense. Adding a veteran presence like Anquan Boldin provides an ideal mentor for the humbled Wideout.

35. Philadelphia: Keenan Allen WR California
Quality receiver that didn't answer athleticism questions at the Combine which makes him fall into Round 2. Makes catches in traffic & is a proficient route runner on intermediate level. Has shown ability to beat press coverage & contribute out of the slot. Chip attributes down production to poor Quarterback play & adds a talented red zone threat that could help replace Jeremy Maclin should he depart in FA following 2013.

36. Detroit: Barrett Jones C-OG Alabama
Offensive line overhaul underway after release of Stephen Peterman, departure of Gosder & expected retirement of Jeff Backus. The versatile Tide Linemen projects ideally at Center, but can man a guard position in the twilight of Raiola's career. He's a technically sound linemen that brings leadership, experience, & tremendous technique. An instant starter at one of the vacant positions.

37. Cincinnati (From Oakland): Eric Reid S LSU
Long limbed Strong Safety that adds a physical dimension to the backend of the Defense. Shows tremendous instincts in coverage & has extensive experience as a Single High Safety. Shows good range in that role, but also comfortable in zone schemes. Tremendous in run support. Consistently gets off the hash quickly with instincts, providing deep help on the boundary. Will finally answer longterm SS need in Cincinnati.

38. Arizona: Ryan Nassib QB Syracuse
Pennsylvania Kid that brings the grit Bruce Arians wants at the position. A natural leader that shows arm strength, the ability to make throws at multiple arm angles & good natural feel in the pocket. Very clean throwing motion. Shows good decision-making. Will require comprehensive crash course in progression reads & pre-snap reads. A student of the game, Nassib will find a natural rapport with the new HC. Major question mark Scouts have at this point is his accuracy. Though it improved during his career, he'll miss high on intermediate throws & ball placement could improve. With a proven QB guru now in the fold, Nassib is selected to start immediately.

39. New York Jets: Giovani Bernard RB North Carolina
Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast Offense requires a Running Back capable of catching the ball out of the backfield. After accumulating 92 Catches for 852 Yards (6 TDS) in two years, Bernard is the most gifted pass catcher of the class. Not lacking carrying the rock, amassed nearly 2,500 yards & 25 TDs on the ground. An explosive runner with great vision and more physical than he's given credit. Capable on 3rd Down in pass protection & sneaking out into a route. Instantly adds a new dimension to the Jets Offense.

40. Tennessee: Zach Ertz TE Stanford
Departure of Jared Cook leaves a void at Tight End. While the Titans might believe Taylor Thompson will develop into a quality option, Ertz provides a tremendous complement for Delanie Walker & blocking TE Craig Stevens. Shows the ability to run precise out routes consistently creating separation. Versatile player that can contribute in the slot or inline. Finds soft sports in zone coverage & has the speed to beat man coverage.

41. Buffalo: Mike Glennon QB N.C. State
After selecting Patterson in Round 1, the Bills address the Quarterback position for the future. While many will contend Nassib was their guy, Glennon fits the scheme with the elite arm talent in the class. Not surrounded with talent at N.C. State, operated out of a WCO terminology wise that incorporate elements of the Air Coryell vertical stretch when protection permitted. Better mobility in the pocket than given credit for. Has the prototypical frame to add 20 pounds improving bottom half strength, which will translate into additional arm strength. If the Bills have an offense that stretches defenses vertically, it will open seams for C.J. Spiller.

Tape is at times frustrating. Flashes brilliance of a top overall pick in Round 1, and then looks like a mid-rounder one quarter later. Watching the Clemson game, you see the player worth considering first overall. With WRs that couldn't separate, was forced to throw into tight windows to make offense operational. Coached by same staff as Matt Ryan. Scouts question his leadership & intangibles. Not from an off the field sense, but in terms of his demeanor. Not your teams motivational speaker by any means, but a quality teammate- never threw his supporting cast under the bus. Battled Adversity against far superior teams on a weekly basis. The Franchise Quarterback will be the top signal caller from the class.

42. Miami: Terron Armstead OT Arkansas-Pinebluff
Small school prospect blew away the Combine displaying off the charts athleticism. Selected at similar point to Jonathan Martin last year, Armstead's athleticism translates to the film. Rare mobility, kick-slides effectively in pass protection & effectively reach blocks against inferior competition. Necessity of this move shows the necessity for adding a veteran tackle in UFA.

43. Tampa Bay: Dwayne Gratz CB U Conn
Schiano has seen Gratz first hand during his time at Rutgers. Long limbed corner that has excelled in off man coverage, but has the ability to become a physical press corner. Can turn & run with the speediest wideouts. Flips his hips effectively & consistently maintain proper positioning between QB & WR. Need at corner is well documented. And with Gratz, the Bucs land good value to compete for a starting spot.

44. Carolina: Johnathan Hankins DT Ohio State
Despite adding Sheldon Richardson in Round 1, Dave Gettleman comes from New York where you stick to your board come draft day. An ideal run stopping two gap nose tackle to complement the 3-technique Richardson. Not a beautiful body, but a player that holds up at the point of attack & sustains it against double teams. Versatility at Ohio State, but projects ideally on the nose. The most glaring weakness on the Defense is immensely upgraded by these two selections.

45. San Diego: Reid Fragel OT Ohio State
Converted Tight End, Fragel has the athleticism to develop into Rivers' blindeside protector under the tutelage of Joe D'Alessandris. A considerable reach vital given glaring need at the position & high price tags of UFA options.

46. St. Louis: Markus Wheaton WR Oregon State
All Time leader in receptions at Oregon State, an underrated playmaker that consistently makes plays all over the field. Natural hands & the ability to make plays vertically in the Air Coryell system. Not your prototypical Coryell Wideout given his size, but displays the body control to adjust to the ball & the high points the ball.

47. Dallas: Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina
Old defensive line is a major concern while implemented Monte Kiffin's 4-3 Under. Williams projects well in the scheme with his first step quickness & ability to penetrate. Tremendous swim move & developing bull rush, but struggles in 2-gap systems. Will excel in the one gap attack mode.

48. Pittsburgh: Datone Jones DE UCLA
Lou Spanos connection, Datone Jones was tremendous for UCLA this past fall all over the Defensive front. Experienced with 43 Career Stars, shows the ability to hold up at the point & brings a repertoire of pass rush moves. Can shoot gaps or play with gap disciplines. Adds depth at End where both Brett Keisel & Evander Hood will be UFAs following 2013.

49. New York Giants: Kawann Short DT Purdue
Immediate impact on the interior where Linval Joseph will be a UFA next offseason & Corey Williams is 32 years of age. Two time Captain for the Boilermakers, stacks blockers & makes plays against sthe run. Not a high impact interior rusher, but can be developed in this regard. Plays with natural leverage & is an ideal fit for a two gap scheme.

50. Chicago: Quinton Patton WR Louisiana Tech
Dangerous & shifty slot WR with excellent hands, quality route running & will immediately contribute on intermediate routes. Production & advanced route running make him a strong fit in the new system.

51. Cincinnati: Travis Frederick C-OG Wisconsin
After success of Kevin Zeitler who was exceptionally well coached at Wisconsin & deserved consideration for OROY, Bengals go back to the source. Frederick is versatile & could supplant Cook at Center if injury issues continue to linger. Will immediately compete at Center & Guard providing quality depth. A tremendous punch and the ability to generate movement in the running game. Also strong in pass protection. Tremendous value in Round 2.

52. Washington: David Amerson CB N.C. State
Amerson is well versed in both man & zone coverages. Questions about athleticism answered on track in Indianapolis. Many speculated he'd transition to FS, but he shows the athleticism to excel in off coverage with natural ball skills & instincts. Redskins must find 1st Round value at 52 & they do with Amerson.

53. Minnesota: John Jenkins DT Georgia
Vikings lack a longterm nose tackle that will eat space, push the pocket with a tremendous bull rush & provide an ideal two gap DT in the scheme. After addressing QB & WR in Round 1, the Vikings consider CB but cannot pass on a solution on the nose.

54. Miami (From Indianapolis): Robert Alford CB SE Louisiana
Two small school prospects in Round 2 might concern Dolphins fans, but Alford is the Best Available Corner who has the size & length to excel in press coverage. Fluid hips & the ability to turn & run with elite wideouts.

55. Seattle: Cornelius 'Tank' Carradine DE Florida State
Rebounding from season ending knee injury, expect the Seahawks to add a veteran stopgap end via Free Agency. Assuming he makes a full recovery, he has the length, explosiveness & hand use the Seahawks desperately need to complement Bruce Irvin.

56. Green Bay: Robert Woods WR USC
Packers type receiver that runs the entire route tree, has consistent hands & extensive experience in the WCO. Will immediately contribute as more of a chain mover to replace Greg Jennings.

57. Houston: DJ Swearinger S South Carolina
Texans had difficulty covering Patriots Tight Ends & addressing that weakness is vital to ensuring playoff success. Swearinger is a natural in man coverage on Tight Ends, but also has the versatility to replace Glover Quinn.

58. Denver: Eddie Lacy RB Alabama
Converting 3rd & 2 was a major issue for the Broncos. Adding Louis Vazquez helps address that concern, but a physical back that consistently falls forward would continue to improve in this area. Lacy runs with tremendous power & is capable in pass protection.

59. New England: Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB U Conn
Patriots type corner, Belichick constantly at U Conn Pro Days looking for talent. Good value in Round 2 to add yet another CB in a long line of 2nd Rounders over the past 5 years.

60. Atlanta: Alex Okafor DE Texas
Tremendous value at 60 for a player that could immediately contribute at Right End. Shows good upfield quickness & has production to warrant this selection. Recent success of Texas D Linemen truly intriguing.

61. San Francisco: Jonathan Cyprien S Florida International
Replacement for Goldson, a physical S in the box that has the range to cover on the backend. Rising up draft boards, but lots of that has to do with being Drew Rosenhaus' lone prospect in the class.

62. Baltimore: Kevin Minter ILB LSU
Replacement for Ellerbe. Lack of a starter is a major concern. LSU Coaches pleaded with Minter to return, but he chose to forego his Senior Season. He was a natural leader that consistently made plays at the point of attack.

Round 3:
63. Kansas City: Matt Elam S Florida
Essentially a 2nd Rounder, Elam's a hard hitting safety that could be a liability with Personnel Fouls. He's a fan favorite, but limited in coverage. Effective up near the line & allows Berry to shift to FS Center Field role.

64. Jacksonville: Zaviar Gooden OLB Missouri
The WILL. Despite signing Geno Hayes, the Jaguars desperately need to add an impact Linebacker outside. Look at the success of 2nd Round Linebackers over the year, consistently in contention for DROY Honors. Gooden has tremendous range & is a playmaker. David Caldwell drafted Sean Weatherspoon in Atlanta & sees a similar versatile force on tape.

65. Detroit: Shawn Williams S Georgia
Excelled at the Senior Bowl with the Lions staff. Even with the signing of Quin, another safety finally shores up the position long-term.

66. Oakland: Nick Williams DT Samford
67. Philadelphia: Jamie Collins OLB Southern Miss
68. Cleveland: Tyler Bray QB Tennessee

Getting Star at 26 pretty much automatically make this draft amazing. Woods in the 2nd is great as well. Pretty "meh" about the other picks, but like I said getting Star would make it worth it.

23. Geno Smith QB West Virginia - 0% chance Vikings select him, especially over Star
25. DeAndre Hopkins WR Clemson - good pick
53. John Jenkins DT Georgia - good pick if the Vikings wouldn't go Star in round one
85. Terry Hawthorne CB Illinois - Solid pick, LB would be better
103. Ryan Swope WR Texas A&M - Good pick
121. Alvin Bailey OG Arkansas - Good pick
156. Braden Hansen OG Brigham Young - Two OG's aren't likely, and 0 LB's to this point, probably LB here as well
180. D.J. Hayden CB Houston - Solid pick
219. Devonte Holloman OLB South Carolina -solid pick
235. Christopher Burnette DT Old Dominion - solid pick

IMO the Bengals need SLB more than WLB, and I'm not convinced Brown can play that spot. Vaccaro there.

Reid is a great pick if they don't get Vaccaro in 1.

I don't think the Bengals go G/C early. Center at all.

We don't need another receiving TE. If we draft a TE at all it will be a blocker.

We have New England's 6.

The rest is good.

I can't complain about Rhodes at 6 especially after that great analysis but it would be hard to watch the Brown pass on Jordan. Really hoping they can trade back because i really like Rhodes.

The Saints didn't sign Robert Ayers. It was a false report. Now, to the mock. I like it, but we need to draft an OLB at some point. Also, unless you're projecting us to sign a FA backup QB we'll need to draft one.

WOW!! thats what comes to mind on your description of the Vikes and their pick.

First, Spielman will live and die by Ponder and he's alot better than people give him credit for..He's not ever going to be elite but he will hold down the fort and that is all they will ask of him.

If somehow Geno makes it to us at 23 there is no way we pick him…yes we need competition to push Ponder and someone that can fill in if he gets injured, but that will more than likely be a vet (think we're trying to trade for Cassel). Smith more than likely will not be able to step in right away if need be.

I could easily see a trade back and get an extra 2014 pick in the process…if not OG Cooper is a no brainer or DT Star depending on health..
Like WR pick of Hopkins or would be happy with WR Allen
I wanted to stop reading it after that but I gave you the benefit of the doubt.

RD2 pick is solid even though you don’t have DT Jenkins listed in the actual draft portion..just the team pick portion

RD 6 we have our own pick..we traded TEN pick to AZ

Rest of draft is decent.

Shocked You have the Cards not drafting a single offensive lineman

Great effort.

Solid Bills draft. I don't like Glennon myself but I could see our front office liking.

In the third, I would prefer a TE, perhaps Vance Mcdonald over a pass rush specialist like Trevardo Williams.

The rest of the draft is solid.

Not bad for my birds, but I believe we have a 4th and 3 7 round comp picks, as always #GoFalcons

very well written and detailed explanations. I'm quite impressed with that. But as for the Jets pick in the 1st, just no..... NO way do they take Tavon Austin at 9

I'm fine with Fisher at the top, if we don't sign a starting RT in Free Agency.

Allen in the 2nd in interesting. I could like that pick.

Love getting Collins in the 3rd. Perfect fit for SAM OLB in the 3-4/4-3 under.

Do not like Holmes in the 4th. We have Jason Kelce at C, who is perfect for Chip's offense. Either a S or CB would have been a better pick there.

Quote:

30. Atlanta: Logan Ryan CB Rutgers
After releasing Dunta Robinson, Asante Samuel remains the loan starting caliber CB in the fold for 2013. Even if Grimes is retained or a veteran FA is signed, Logan Ryan is the selection. I'm exceptionally high on Ryan, whose a physical & active corner with fluid hips. Physical tackler that can play in both man & zone schemes. Needs to refine technique, but thats common for underclassmen. At his best near the line of scrimmage in press coverage, mirrors receivers on the field & delivers the big hit (94 Tackles in 2012). Lofty comparison, but I see potential Darrelle Revis.

horrible pick. Ryan isn't worth a first round pick. can't see the Falcons passing on WR Keenan Allen here. jsut way too good of a value.

Quote:
60. Atlanta: Alex Okafor DE Texas
Tremendous value at 60 for a player that could immediately contribute at Right End. Shows good upfield quickness & has production to warrant this selection. Recent success of Texas D Linemen truly intriguing.
92. Atlanta: Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina
128. Atlanta: Jelani Jenkins OLB Florida

good picks
Quote:
132. Atlanta (Compensatory): Montori Hughes DT Tennessee Martin

While I like Hughes, he won't be on the Falcons radar due to his getting kicked off of Tennessee. Look for TE Nick Kasa here.

Quote:
163. Atlanta: Steve Williams CB California
202. Atlanta: Jordan Mills OT Louisiana Tech
242. Atlanta: Mychal Rivera TE Tennessee
252. Atlanta (Compensatory): Keith Pough OLB Howard

good picks for depth

I personally feel that crypien, collins and scott make more sense in rounds 2, 3 and 6.

They all fit major needs and could have a chance to make an impact.

I really like this mock alot, you made some surprise selections and that is always fun to read. Good job
