The concern with filling out a mock draft this year is not so much how many picks I'll get wrong (plenty, I know), but rather exactly how irrelevant my notions of team needs and wants will be once all this draft's wheeling and dealing begins.

There are no trades in the two-round mock below -- so, it's not going to be an exact replica of Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2013 NFL Draft. But consider the players given to each team my best guess at those teams' goals for the early rounds.

And here we go ...
