With just six days until the 2013 NFL Draft, all scouting reports are done, rankings are compiled and mock drafts are for the most part solidified. To pass the time leading up to Thursday night, it can’t hurt to do a bit of a fun, different article.

Here is my “all-draft team,” with my top player(s) at each position in the draft. Some positions have two players listed, such as wide receiver and inside linebacker. Of course, offenses use at least two wide receivers on normal plays and 3-4 defenses use two inside linebackers. 

Some of the positions, such as defensive tackle and defensive end, are subjective rankings with respect to the fact that it really depends on the defense. Trying to pick two defensive ends is tough because 3-4 and 4-3 ends are completely different. So, I made defensive tackle two different positions. There isn’t just one defense that I can choose, but these players are in my opinion the best.
