2013 NFL Draft: Two prospects go in opposite directions after Pro Days

By Neal Coolong on Mar 22 2013



Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei checked out medically at his Pro Day while Georgia's Jarvis Jones suffered a major setback.

If you're hearing quiet thuds on the ground, it could be the sound of millions of dollars falling out of the pockets of Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones.

He reportedly ran a 4.92 in the 40 at his Pro Day Thursday, all but assuring he'll be available for the Steelers with the 17th overall pick. He'll probably be available for several teams after that as well.


His mediocre 20 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press aren't going to help a player who has been knocked for his ability to win 1-on-1s at the point of attack.

According to NFL.com, Jones said "I'm a football player. It's about football, right? I'm a football player. That's what I do. At the end of the day, you get those drills - I'm not saying they ain't worth nothing - but you get those drills, running the 40 and all that stuff. You could get someone off the street who can run a 4.3, but they can't play football. That's easy."

Those guys who ran a 4.3 at least show the ability to get from Point A to B at the speed of an NFL player. He does make a realistic point, although, it's one made by those who do not perform well in those drills.

Utah's Star Lotulelei did not disappoint in those drills. He repped 225 pounds 38 times on the bench, and had an impressive 4.65 time in the short shuttle.

More importantly, though, the alleged heart issue that kept him out of workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine were put to rest. Doctors fully cleared him, saying the abnormality that caused his left ventricle to only be pumping blood at 44 percent efficiency (55-70 percent is considered normal) is gone, and could simply have been caused by a cold.

So the Steelers can scratch his name off their list of likely picks at No. 17. It was fun while it lasted.

2013 PFT mock draft, Version 1

Posted by Mike Florio on March 24, 2013

It makes no sense to do mock drafts before free agency starts, even though everyone does. It makes somewhat less nonsense to do one two weeks into free agency, but things can still change until itís time for the first pick to be made.

Then again, it arguably makes no sense to do mock drafts at all, since itís inherently a crapshoot that gives the experts and those who think they are something to do.

Itís even more of a crapshoot in 2013.

But weíll shoot the crap anyway, since we havenít done it yet this year and plenty of you have been asking for us to do one.

Probably so that you can complain about how bad it is.

So complain away.

1. Chiefs: DE Dion Jordan, Oregon.

2. Jaguars: OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M.

3. Raiders: DT Sharrif Floyd, Florida.

4. Eagles: DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri.

5. Lions: CB Desmond Trufant, Washington.

6. Browns: DE Ziggy Ansah, BYU.

7. Cardinals: DE Barkevious Mingo, LSU.

8. Bills: QB Matt Barkley, USC.

9. Jets: CB Dee Milliner, Alabama.

10. Titans: OG Chance Warmack, Alabama.

11. Chargers: OT Eric Fisher, Central Michigan.

12. Dolphins: OT Lane Johnson, Oklahoma.

13. Buccaneers: WR Tavon Austin, West Virginia.

14. Panthers: DT Star Lotulelei, Utah.

15. Saints: WR Keenan Allen, California.

16. Rams: OG Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina.

17. Steelers: RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama.

18. Cowboys: S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas.

19. Giants: DE Bjoern Werner, Florida State.

20. Bears: LB Jarvis Jones, Georgia.

21. Bengals: DT Sylvester Williams, North Carolina.

22. Rams (from Redskins): OT D.J. Fluker, Alabama.

23. Vikings: QB Geno Smith, West Virginia.

24. Colts: WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee.

25. Vikings (from Seahawks): LB Manti Teío, Notre Dame.

26. Packers: TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame.

27. Texans: WR Deandre Hopkins, Clemson.

28. Broncos: S Matt Elam, Florida.

29. Patriots: CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida State.

30. Falcons: DE Cornellius Carradine, Florida State.

31. 49ers: NT John Jenkins, Georgia.

32. Ravens: OT Kyle Long, Oregon.

They better not use their #17 on Lacy, especially when players like Jarvis Jones, Vaccaro are still on the board.

Im really starting to root against the possibility of using the 17th on Jones.....Sounds more an more like we would be getting another Lazy Version Woodley

His tape doesn't impress me to boot

Uh...
Yeah, Lattimore in R4. like in Hawaii 5-0's draft, sounds a whole lot better to me than Lacy in R4. Also, I don't see Geno Smith falling to #23, especially with Barkley going #8. Hey, but I hope the QBs do fall to #17. Gives the Steelers a better opportunity to trade down.

Florio has OT Johnson going to the Dolphins at #8. I've seen the Dolphins taking CB Rhodes in quite a few mock drafts, or Johnson. Rhodes is going at #29 according to Florio,

Ok Hawaii 5-0, I see the light here on your plan to trade down with the Dolphins. They want both Johnson and Rhodes. That happens by trading down with the Steelers, just like you keep saying, every time you post.

If there was a year to trade down and add more 2nd and 3rd rounders, its this year.

I would definitely take Jones over Lacy. I think we need to go safety, tight end or defensive line. We need a pass rusher but the other three are more important in the first.

I couldn't agree more, this is a very deep draft with a lot of very good prospects available after the first round...

See NFL website has Tavon Austin being mocked to us today. Would love either Jones, Austin, Vaccaro or Eifert.
