What are the deepest positions in the draft? Dan Leberfeld

What is the deepest positions of the 2013 draft?

“I think the deepest positions are the offensive line, center guard and tackle,” said Mike Mayock of the NFL Network. “I’ve never seen two guards at the top end (Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper) this good that could be top 10 picks. Love them. I’ve got six tackles that I’ve given first round grades to. So the offensive line depth is really good.

“I think the defensive tackle depth is outstanding, the safety depth is outstanding. Now the corner thing is a little different. After [Dee] Milliner, nobody knows who the second corner is. That is one of the questions that could be answered this weekend. Who runs fast, who looks the best?

“So I would tell you, that depending on what happens with these corners, if you don’t get Milliner and somebody runs fast, [Johnthan] Banks, [Desmond] Trufant, any of those guys runs 4.4, who the next corner coming off is going to be really intriguing.

“I like the tight ends, but there is a drop-off after three, so you could see a little bit of a run. A team wants a tight end, but they want to make sure they’re in that top three. You could see some guys going to get all three of those guys. We haven’t had a tight end drafted in the first round in the last two years, so I think that’s going to change this year.

“Obviously, the quarterback position is all over the board. So those are the positions I’m most concerned about.”
