Mayock's Top 10: 2013 With draft day a mere 5 months away, here is the first edition of my top 10 for the 2013 draft. 1.Vickery is an explosive pass rusher who uses violent hands and superb length to dominate offensive lineman. Through 9 games, Vickery has tallied 9 sacks and has batted 17 balls down at the line of scrimmage. 2.Big Bubba is just an absolute hoss who uses his massive frame to clog running lanes. An ideal zero technique in a base 3-4, McCoy has the ability to anchor a front 7 at the next level. 3.While all the love has gone to Stacy Knight, I’ve got Hendrix ranked ahead of him on my board. Hendrix has the perfect frame for the next level, and possesses elite arm strength and intelligence. I believe his game simply translates better at the next level. 4.Middleton is a kid who has been flying up my board. He started his career at TE, and has since moved to DE. While relatively unproductive his first few years, he has exploded onto the scene this year, leading the country with 11 sacks. His athleticism is elite, but he’ll have to refine his technique in order to succeed at the next level. 5.The comparisons to Michael Floyd are inevitable. Barbour however, I grade slightly higher. He is a very polished route runner with strong hands. He also doubles as a very willing and capable run blocker. Barbour will be a day one starter in the NFL. 6.Premier lockdown corner with good size and speed. Ultra productive kid at SC, as teams have just avoided Boyd following a 12 pick season a year ago. Still, he grades out as an above average cover corner with elite athleticism. 7.Everyone wants to talk about this kid, and for good reason. An explosive athlete, Knight is also an intelligent and mature kid who has guided Cincinatti to an 8-0 start this season. Knight has an exceptionally strong arm, and his accuracy is underrated. Still, I don’t believe he will be as successful as Hendrix moving forward. I also worry about the punishment his body may take with all the mobility he takes advantage of. 8.It can be very difficult to differentiate yourself on a defense as loaded as the Hokies are. Davis, however, has made a statement this season. He’s accumulated an impressive 85 tackles through 8 games, and forced 4 fumbles. He is a solid athlete with great technique, but will need to improve on his coverage skills before he jumps up my board any higher. 9.Lockett is yet another backer flying up my board. Though not all projections have him going too high, he is a stout run stopper with great athleticism. Though he could use a few pound, he plays downhill and is as sure of a tackler as there is in this draft. Fiesty leader with an attitude. 10.Freeman came into this season top three on most boards. In what became a coming out night for Rashad Middleton week 6, Middleton got the better of Freeman several times. Where Middleton really dominated was in the running game, as Freeman really struggled to set the edge. Freeman has all the tools to develop into a premier LT, but he’ll need to develop a bit before he gets there.
