NFL Mock Draft 4.0, by James Fedewa

The San Diego Chargers have many options they can go with for next months NFL Draft.  As much as I’d really like wide reciever Cordarrelle Patterson as a Charger, San Diego may have to pass on his amazing running skills for a more important need in the first round.

Patterson can do most of his route running on short/quick routes, whereas Rivers doesn’t have to hold the ball to long and quick pass to him, helping the offensive line with quick blocking assignments. Plus Patterson can take direct snaps, run reverses, option-pass and special teams (and amazing kick/punt returner). He’s a type of wide receiver that MUST demand double coverage from opponents, not like any receiver on the current roster. Patterson is a top 7 to 15 talent in this upcoming draft and I have him MOCKED (projected) going to Buffalo (as the Bills can get a good QB prospect in the 2nd or 3rd round, like QB Ryan Nassib or QB Mike Glennon). Cordarrelle Patterson is a work in progress and needs some heavy coaching, but the way he can run is really fun to watch.

However, I think Eric Fisher could actually be available at #11 overall for San Diego to take. Here’s my latest MOCK DRAFT- (PLEASE RATE and share your thoughts):

2013 NFL Mock Draft (pre-free agency) by James Fedewa

The NFL off season leaves most football fans with a lonely void of the GOT NO FOOTBALL BLUES.  We miss our game, our team and wonder and speculate how we fans can improve our beloved team.  With trade rumors, gossip, opinions and speculations flinging across fan-websites & news papers, with no real news reported  (other than salary cap cuts and the Alex Smith unofficial trade), no real player interviews are worth watching.  So fan cling to the next best thing: the NFL Scouting Combine followed by hundreds of MOCK DRAFTS. I’m an NFL fan, and my favorite team has its share(s) of number ONE overall picks (along with with the worst record in the league), so mock-drafts have been part of my football fan career. I’m a fixer and an idea-man, so I want to figure out the details of how to improve my favorite team (and all of their opponents).  Routinely for the last 19 years, I annually guesstimate  WHO is going where, what college phenom can help this team and how can you improve all teams.   So if you’re dream job is a General Manage of an NFL Team (which is mine dream job), I MOCK DRAFT every teams need as if I’m the General Manager OF THE WORLD (well, not really). The NFL Franchise Tags have been set, so here’s my VERSION ONE of my 2013 NFL Mock Draft:
