Don Banks: NFL draft redux: Reprojecting the first round of the 2013 draft

Allen lasted until the third round in April, but he doesn't even make it to the third pick in our re-draft. Fisher looked lost at right tackle early in the season and really didn't start playing with much consistency and command of his position until the final weeks of the schedule. But Richardson was a disruptive and productive force from Day 1 for the Jets, and he excelled at stuffing the run, while also proving he could regularly find his way into the backfield . Richardson, who got my vote for the league's Defensive Rookie of the Year, even turned into a useful Jumbo fullback late in the year and scored a pair of goal-line situation touchdowns. Joeckel fared well when he was healthy, but he lasted just four-plus games into his rookie season before a broken ankle landed him on IR. As starved as the Jaguars were for offensive playmakers, Allen would have come in very handy.
