The 2012 NFL Draft ended less than 48 hours ago. We haven't even seen any of the players drafted wearing their team's jersey on the playing field, let alone the practice field. But that doesn't mean that we can't immediately forget and ignore the potential contributions of the players each ten just drafted and try to figure out who the next players to walk through that door will be. The guys over at SB Nation have already come out with their 2013 NFL Mock Draft, and it has some names that you will need to get to know over the next year. Keep in mind it's hard to really evaluate these players because we haven't been studying them for months on end, but do your best.
The Jaguars are the lowest rated Florida team in that Mock, and SB Nation projects them to be picking No. 3. With that pick they believe the Jaguars will turn their attention to the defensive line with Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins.
Will they be looking at a quarterback? If not, blue chip defensive linemen are always welcome.
The Miami Dolphins are up next, as it appears SB Nation doesn't think that Ryan Tannehill is good for that many more wins next year. They select North Carolina State cornerback David Amerson at No. 7 overall.
Big, fast and physical, Amerson could be next year's version of Claiborne. He also has hands, 12 interceptions last year.
Finally the Buccaneers, who they project to move all the way down to the No. 11 pick. With that pick they have the Bucs taking Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker.
Jeremy Trueblood is a free agent after 2012. Donald Penn is just so-so. Time to address the position.
