NFL Mock Draft 2013: Analysts agree on team needs

Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE

The draft day needs for the Jaguars, Dolphins and Buccaneers have made themselves apparent during the 2012 season.

The Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars are all eliminated from the postseason, meaning that only one more game separates the three teams from the upcoming offseason. With four months until the 2013 NFL Draft, the needs that each team will have to address have come to the surface -- so much so that both Rob Rang and Dane Brugler of CBS Sports selected for the same needs for each team in their latest mock drafts.

With the second overall selection almost surely in the possession of the Jaguars, both Rang and Brugler felt that the team should address its inability to rush the passer. Both draft analysts selected Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner with the second selection for the Jaguars.

Rang and Brugler also agreed for their selection for the Dolphins at pick No. 13, as each gave the team California wide receiver Keenan Allen. Despite a strong rookie season for Ryan Tannehill, the team has lacked a dynamic receiving threat and has the No. 26 passing offense and third-fewest passing touchdowns.

The CBS mock drafts did not agree for the Buccaneers, although, both Rang and Brugler addressed the team's secondary woes. In Rang's mock draft, the Buccaneers selected the first cornerback off the board, Alabama's Dee Milliner, to help a pass defense that ranks last in the NFL. Brugler also selected a defensive back for the Buccaneers, but with Milliner already off the board, it was Florida State's Xavier Rhodes.

The 2013 NFL Draft is scheduled to begin on Thursday, April 25.
