    First-round picks/predictions from a few NFL mocks around the intraweb. (All were late-20s):
    Dion Jordan, DE Oregon

    Analysis: Teams looking for a traditional 3-4 rush linebacker will be intrigued by Jordan as he times the snap well, shows the flexibility to dip under the reach of tackles and closes quickly. Unlike most "defensive ends" asked to make the transition to outside linebacker, Jordan has experience in coverage, as he was routinely asked to line up over the slot receiver initially, showing the balance and awareness to give a creative NFL defensive coordinator a variety of ways in which he can rattle the opposing quarterback.
    Jesse Williams, DT Alabama

    Analysis: Incredibly strong (he's reportedly maxed out on the bench press at 600 pounds) and surprisingly agile, Williams is the most athletically intriguing of this year's talented Alabama class. With only one season of top notch competition under his belt he's certainly a project but considering his tools and the coaching staff working with him, Williams is a good bet to join running back Eddie Lacy as a breakout candidate for the Tide and eventually earn heavy NFL draft consideration. / Oct 9th
    Alex Okafor, DE, Texas
    Walter / Oct 2nd
    Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

    Okafor profiles as a Power Rusher who can walk his man into the backfield, while also making him very tough to run on. Okafor also has the speed to be dangerous around the edge, along with the quickness to beat his man inside or outside. In such a deep class of Pass Rushers, the Falcons get a steal here in Okafor, who could easily be a Top 15 pick in most drafts. / Oct 7th
