2013 NFL Mock Draft from Mocking the Draft

Ed Zurga

Dan Kadar from SB Nation's Mocking the Draft has updated his 2013 NFL Mock Draft. Last time, he had the Miami Dolphins selecting California wide receiver Keenan Allen. Does he stick with that pick, or is someone new in the 12th spot?

While the NFL is focused on the Playoffs season, fans of the 24 teams not playing any more are starting to turn their attention to the 2013 offseason. Nothing marks the change of hoping for a Super Bowl this year to hoping for a Super Bowl next year as much as a mock draft. The beginning of mock draft season is upon us, including an update to the mock draft over at Mocking the Draft.

A week ago, Dan Kadar published his first mock draft with the Miami Dolphins selecting California wide receiver Keenan Allen with the twelfth overall pick. This week, Allen stays on the board until the Minnesota Vikings at 23. So, who does Kadar have the Dolphins selecting in his latest mock draft?

The Dolphins, according to Kadar, will address their pass rush need in the first round, targeting linebacker Jarvins Jones from Georgia. Of the pick, Kadar writes:

Concerns about Jarvis Jones' spinal stenosis could definitely drop him on draft day. I can't speak to the nature of that injury, but NFL teams will certainly do their due diligence. Health issues aside, Jones is an explosive edge rusher who lacks the strength to get after the passer if he doesn't beat his man to the edge. The Dolphins could use another pass rusher, so Jones would be a welcome addition if he falls to this spot.

What do you think of the pick? Will the spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal column, causing pressure on the spinal cord and can lead to herniated disks, numbness in the limbs, balance issues, and other problems if not treated and/or surgically corrected) scare away teams?

And, like Kadar said, teams will put Jones through full physicals and determine if his back will be able to handle the rigors of an NFL season and career.
