As we creep up on Free Agency, NFL Draft Net 2013 NFL Mock Draft has been updated, including a second round. While it seems like it is an effort that will soon be released when Free Agency begins on March 12th, it is nice to get a look at what needs can be filled in the second round. A cause of uproar with mock drafts can come from fans not seeing the positions they feel are a need addressed. Because the need was not addressed in the first round does not mean that it will not be addressed. Often when a team does not reach for a player of need in the first round, they can find a value at that position in the second. Something else to consider is that the team may have an apparent “need” they do not address because they already had a plan with someone on the roster to fill it. Anyway, I digress. Back to the Mock Draft. We will see many changes in the next week as team address needs in Free Agency.
Some of the changes in this update…
1.15 New Orleans Saints: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
Previous: Damontre Moore
We have had Vaccaro to the Saints in previous updates, and this time he returns again. The obvious choice of a pick would be an outside rusher for the new 3-4 Defense. Problem is that the prospects that fit the value are gone by this point. The Saints have to make this pick count since they won’t have a second rounder without some maneuvering. Vaccaro would plug right in to a needy secondary.
