Our 2013 NFL Draft picks are here at Bankroll Sports! With the NFL Draft just a few short days away, we are going to be making our picks for who will go in the first 32 picks in the draft and include our NFL Draft predictions!

1: Kansas City Chiefs – OT Luke Joeckel
The Chiefs have their quarterback now in Alex Smith. They may as well take the best player in the NFL Draft, and that’s almost certainly Joeckel.

2: Jacksonville Jaguars – DE Dion Jordan
The Jags had one of the worst pass rushes in football last year, and Jordan is the strong rusher off of the edge that can really make this defense formidable again.

3: Oakland Raiders – DT Sharrif Floyd
Many agree that this is going to be the pick here at No. 3 for the Raiders, though we aren’t all that sure whether or not the team could trade out of this pick.

4: Philadelphia Eagles – OT Eric Fisher
With QB Michael Vick seemingly set as the team’s starting quarterback, it seems like fixing the offensive line makes the most sense for the Eagles.

5: Detroit Lions – DE Ziggy Ansah
The Lions probably would have wanted either Fisher or Joeckel, but if both are off the board, addressing the defensive end spot seems to be the most logical thing to do if trading out isn’t an option.

6: Cleveland Browns – DB Dee Milliner
The Browns already have one franchise corner in DB Joe Haden, and this would give them the best secondary in the AFC North in all likelihood if it were to happen this way.

7: Arizona Cardinals – OT Lane Johnson
The third offensive lineman comes off of the board here in Johnson, as the Cardinals badly need to improve their line play for any quarterback to succeed.

8: Buffalo Bills – QB Geno Smith
We just can’t picture the Bills being content to give it a go with QB Kevin Kolb this year. They’ll take Smith to make sure that the Jets don’t take him.

9: New York Jets – DT Star Lotuleilei
It might be a bit of a reach for Lotuleilei, but this should be the best defensive player on the board at this point for the Jets to snare, and you know how Head Coach Rex Ryan loves his defense.

10: Tennessee Titans – OG Chance Warmack
Warmack is one of the many Alabama linemen that could make a huge impact at this level, and the Titans, who badly need offensive line help, could really use him as a top selection this year.

11: San Diego Chargers – OG Jonathan Cooper
Another team that really needs some help along the offensive line. The Chargers have to give some support in the trenches on both sides of the ball for what QB Philip Rivers is bringing to the table.

12: Miami Dolphins – DB Xavier Rhodes
A perfect fit. The Dolphins need more corners, and they have a history of drafting or bringing in local players that went to the Sunshine State colleges. Florida State’s Rhodes should make a nice addition to the back line for the team.

13: Tampa Bay Buccaneers – WR Tavon Austin
We know that this pick doesn’t make a heck of a lot of sense for the Bucs, but it makes a ton of sense for the Jets, who we believe will be picking in this slot instead of Tampa Bay after a deal involving DB Darrelle Revis.

14: Carolina Panthers – DE Barkevious Mingo
LSU defensive linemen haven’t had tremendous success here at the next level, but this is still a man that has superior talent. Carolina would be thrilled to see Mingo drop to 14.

15: New Orleans Saints – DT Sheldon Richardson
The Saints don’t have a second round pick to work with this year, so trading down is a real option. If they stay though, they’ll need a lineman on one side of the ball or the other.

16: St. Louis Rams – OT DJ Fluker
There’s more help on the way for QB Sam Bradford coming with this pick for sure, but there is a question as to whether it will be an offensive lineman or a receiver that the team goes after. We’d bet lineman.

17: Pittsburgh Steelers – LB Jarvis Jones
It just makes too much sense not to do. The Steelers are going to need to bring in that next wave of linebackers, and Jones fits the mold perfective as a man that could slot right into the 3-4 and cause some havoc from Day 1.

18: Dallas Cowboys – DE Bjoern Werner
There are too many comparison between Werner and DE JJ Watt for the beast from Florida State to drop too much more than this.

19: New York Giants – LB Alec Ogletree
The Giants have tremendous athletes all over the place on the field, but this isn’t a position where they have many stars. They’d be reaching for Ogletree in our eyes at 19, but he addresses what might be the most pressing need they have.

20: Chicago Bearas – WR Keenan Allen
More help is clearly coming at the wide receiver position somewhere along the way in this draft for the Bears. WR Devin Hester will work well in the slot in what should be a more wide open offense, but someone else is needed on the outside to flank WR Brandon Marshall. WR Alshon Jeffrey might be able to do it, but Allen is the perfect guy that can be a lifetime 70/1,000/8 type of receiver.

21: Cincinnati Bengals – SS Kenny Vaccaro
It’s not really a huge need for the Bengals, but they need the best player available if they are going to continue to take strides in the AFC North.

22: St. Louis Rams – WR Cordarrelle Patterson
Last year, the Rams missed on WR Brian Quick. Patterson is another type of receiver that could be a huge boom or a huge bust.

23: Minnesota Vikings – LB Manti Te’o
There are just too many that think Te’o will go here to the Vikings, and especially knowing that the Colts right behind them would love to add a leader of a linebacker, this is where Minnesota would have to do it.

24: Indianapolis Colts – FS Eric Reid
The Colts have been drafting a lot of natural leaders, and they would love to bring in another one here in Reid. This is the typical Indy pick that should have a huge reward.

Just Bet Sports

25: Minnesota Vikings – WR Justin Hunter
The need for a wide receiver is just too great for the Vikings to ultimately pass, even though the best options just aren’t available at this point.

26: Green Bay Packers – OT Menelik Watson
It would be strange for Green Bay to take a third offensive tackle in the last four years in the NFL Draft, but if Watson is available, we have a hard time imagining that the team is going to pass on him.

27: Houston Texans – TE Tyler Eifert
The Texans have a great tight end in TE Owen Daniels, but this would be an interesting selection for sure. However, Houston utilizes two tight end sets all the time, and the departure of TE James Casey in the offseason opens up the possibility to take Eifert if he falls this far.

28: Denver Broncos – TE Zach Ertz
Another weapon for QB Peyton Manning to work with. The tight end position really lacked last year in Denver, and Ertz could become the second coming of TE Dallas Clark from Peyton’s days with the Colts.

29: New England Patriots – FS Matt Elam
The Patriots love drafting their Gators, and they’ll get a good one here in Elam. This is a big, rangy safety that has tremendous leadership qualities that could really help fill the holes to a patchy defense.

30: Atlanta Falcons – DB Desmond Trufant
With both of the tight ends off of the board, the Falcons don’t have a huge pick to make here. The possibility is there to trade up for a DB if there is someone that the team wants to target, but otherwise, staying here and taking Trufant makes the most sense.

31: San Francisco 49ers – DE Datone Jones
We really have no idea what the 49ers are going to do here with the 31st pick, as we really don’t see any gaping holes that they have to fill. That said, it’s the best player available on the board, and it is likely that Jones will be in high demand at the back end of the round.

32: Baltimore Ravens – WR Robert Woods
Someone is going to need to replace the departured WR Anquan Boldin, and this is a cheap option that could prove to be an elite receiver at this level with some grooming.
