2013 NFL Draft: Our Post-Combine BRBig Board Is Here

The combine came and went, and so did my messed up sleep cycle. Check out all of our overreaction-fueled rankings below.

#96 in your program and #1 in Brett's heart.
#96 in your program and #1 in Brett's heart.

One or more of these names is about to be a Tennessee Titan. That poor, poor man. Coincidentally, his future fans are even poorer (bah dum tsss).

1. Dion Jordan

- Jordan put on a great show in Indy. Despite packing on a lot of bulk since the season ended, he showed that he still has phenomenal movement skills.

2. Luke Joeckel

- Joeckel was average in the measurables but terrific in position drills. His kick slide is very natural.

3. Eric Fisher

- Fisher helped himself at the Combine with a great showing in position drills. He moved just as well if not better than his Texas A&M contemporary.

4. Chance Warmack

- Warmack slipped a bit in Indy with so-so numbers in athletic tests, but his field drills looked as good as you could ever want in a guard.

5. Sharrif Floyd

- Floyd both put up excellent numbers and flashed dominant potential in drills last weekend. He looks deserving of a top 5 pick.

6. Star Lotulelei

- Star’s heart condition is concerning, but there is talk that his problems may just be attributed to dehydration more than anything else. I’m not dropping him any lower until more information comes out.

7. Johnathan Cooper

- Cooper looked just as good as Warmack in field drills while putting up even better measurables. He is climbing fast and it wouldn’t shock me if he is the first guard taken.

8. Lane Johnson

- Johnson put his insane athleticism on display at the Combine and everyone took notice. All three top tackles might go in the first 7-10 picks.

9. Ezekiel Ansah

- Everyone knew Ansah was going to light it up in the measurables department, but damn. I wasn’t prepared for that. Nobody was. The fact that he did that without even training for the Combine? Ridiculous.

10. Matt Barkley

- Despite not participating last weekend, he is still the best QB in the draft to me.

11. Sheldon Richardson

- Richardson drops more so because of others rising than any fault of his own. He’s still a great 3-4 DE/4-3 undertackle prospect in the vein of Fletcher Cox from 2012.

12. Geno Smith

- Geno was faster than I thought he would be and showed great accuracy and timing in drills. He’s going to be a good QB in the league, but I’m still not sold on "great."

13. Damontre Moore

- I don’t care what he benched. I don’t care what he ran. I care what he jumped, and this man can straight up jump. That kind of lower body explosion is enough to convince me that he is deserving of a first round pick as a 3-4 OLB/4-3 DE tweener. Defenses running multiple fronts will love him.

14. Xavier Rhodes

- Rhodes’ one question mark going into the Combine was his speed, and he emphatically answered that question with a 4.43. Next.

15. Cordarelle Patterson

- For the record, I think Keenan Allen is a better pure receiving prospect than Patterson by a wide margin, but Patterson’s open field ability and versatility sets him apart as a dangerous offensive weapon.

16. Jarvis Jones

- Jones didn’t work out, and he really didn’t do anything wrong to drop his stock, but in order for others to move up, some must move down.

17. Tyler Eifert

- Eifert had a great combine and firmly planted himself on top of the TE rankings. He might not go until the early second round, but he is a matchup nightmare waiting to happen.

18. Alex Okafor

- I still think Okafor is the best pure LDE in this class. He can stop the run and beat (generally) slower right tackles with speed and technique on the edge. Having enough versatility to play standing up doesn’t hurt either.

19. Bjoern Werner

- Werner had a decent Combine. His lower body explosiveness left a little to be desired.

20. Keenan Allen

- Everything about his game is great. He’s not a downfield burner, but he doesn’t have to be. Very reminiscent of Reggie Wayne to me.

21. Manti Te’o

- Who cares about his forty? His position drills were excellent. He was the best 4-3 Mike on the field by far. Whoever grabs Te’o will have their middle linebacker for the next decade.

22. Kawann Short

- Short didn’t work out because of a hamstring injury and will miss his pro day, but his interior pass rushing skills are still fantastic. He has some of the best hands of any of the D-linemen in this class and he enough power to push the pocket. Solid player.

23. Arthur Brown

- Brown didn’t work out, but his tape speaks for itself. I’m eager to see his measurables with all that new weight on his bones.

24. Kyle Long

- I’ve been waffling back and forth between a late first and early second round-ish grade on Long, but the Combine convinced me he is worth a selection in the first 32 picks. He’s raw, sure, but his athleticism and maturity coming out of the other side of his drug addiction is very encouraging.

25. Justin Hunter

- The one issue holding me back on Hunter was my extreme apprehensiveness about his knee and how it would affect him physically. Judging by his Combine numbers, I would say not at all. Welcome back to the first round, Justin. Now just stop dropping balls and you’ll be all set.

26. DeAndre Hopkins

27. Datone Jones
