Gil Brandt's Top 100 Prospects in the 2013 draft


Back in the day Brandt, as Vice President of player personnel, was part of the triumvirate, along with Tom Landry and Tex Schram, that ran the Cowboys in their heyday. Now he's an nfl.com analyst.

Anyway, here's his list:


quote:

14) Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
The former high school quarterback shifted to tight end in junior college before moving to the offensive line in 2011. Johnson really stood out in the Cotton Bowl with the way he handled Texas A&M's Damontre Moore.

15) Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU
Mingo is a better athlete than he is a football player at this point, and he needs work when it comes to defending the run. He is, however, a very good pass rusher, and everyone is looking for very good pass rushers.

16) Keenan Allen, WR, Cal
Allen caught lots of passes at Cal even though he didn't have much of a quarterback throwing to him, and he's strong and quick for the position. A knee injury caused him to miss time in 2012; teams will need to check on his health.

17) Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee
He's a size-speed player who catches well and spent some time at running back. Patterson, who spent two years in junior college before arriving at Tennessee, has just one season of experience playing major college football.

18) Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
I think he's every bit as good as Mark Barron, who was picked seventh overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012 and went on to have a very good rookie year. The tough Vaccaro is athletic enough to cover the slot receiver; he never slows down.

19) Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia
Ogletree, who started his career as a safety, runs well and has good instincts; he's a very good athlete who can play inside or outside. Players from Georgia tend to do well in the NFL. Teams will have to do more background work on Ogletree, however, given that he was recently charged with a DUI.

Several of the websites I read recently said he's hot right now and climbing up the draft lists. Fwiw. Brandt having him at #14 is the highest Ive seen him. Most of them have Johnson going at #11 to San Diego or even cracking the top 10.

Yeah, I doubt he falls to us. It would be nice to have some better tackle play. We seem to make it work, but there have been a couple of games (Skins and Chiefs last year) where tackle play killed us.

I got pissed when I read that "players from Georgia do well in the NFL"...maybe that trend started after the Saints drafted their stinker!

There were 16 games last year where our entire defense killed us. We dont seem to make it work. Ever. up another one in the 3rd or move up in the 2nd to get one. 1st round is all D.

Should probably note that this list is pre-combine (last updated Feb 20).
