2013 NFL mock draft: Mike Mayock makes his picks

Check out our 2013 Eagles mock draft central for more opinions on who could be the #4 pick in April.

Every year, NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock does one mock draft and waits until the last minute to do so. So with just hours to go before the 2013 draft, Mayock has dropped a mock on us.

And it's different. You can certainly see how Mike's overall draft philosophy is "take the best player available" because his mock almost reads like a big board. There is some thought about need in there for sure, but clearly Mike values talent above all.

For the Eagles, he's got Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson.

"He's the freakiest tackle I've ever seen in my life. And because of what Chip Kelly does -- up-tempo, maximize snaps, throw the bubble screens, throw the tunnel screens -- he needs a great athlete at left tackle."
