It might take three years to determine whether a player can cut the mustard in the NFL, but that shouldn't discourage evaluators from making strong assertions about a player's potential after watching him perform as a rookie. Although I've been told by a number of coaches that most NFL players make their biggest development gains between their first and second seasons, I believe a player's performance as a rookie reveals a lot about their talent and potential impact.
Thus, it's never too early to use that hindsight and perspective to imagine what the 2013 NFL Draft would look like if we gave decision makers another chance to get it right on draft weekend. While some would stubbornly stick with their original picks, I'm sure a number of executives would welcome the chance to take a mulligan on their draft selections. With that in mind, here's how I see the 2013 draft shaking out in a do-over.
22. Atlanta Falcons
Comment: The Falcons didn't sufficiently fill John Abraham's role a season ago. Given another crack at it, GM Thomas Dimitroff would take a chance on Jordan to see if the freakish athlete could provide a spark off the edge as rookie starter.
