2013 NFL Mock Draft: Ravens and Redskins both get secondary help

The Ravens draft last in the first round, while the Redskins don't have a first-round pick because of the Robert Griffin III trade.

The Baltimore Ravens are Super Bowl champions. The only downside is they now own the last pick in the first round of April's draft.

With the Super Bowl in the books and the draft order set, we here at SB Nation released our first post-Super Bowl mock draft. The Ravens selected Rutgers cornerback Logan Ryan to round out the first round. Here was our reasoning for the pick:

The Ravens may have won the Super Bowl, but they still could use some pieces in the secondary. Lardarius Webb will be back from his knee injury, but another corner would be a big help for Baltimore. Logan Ryan fits perfectly with Baltimore's defensive mindset. He's a competitive and physical cornerback.

Meanwhile, the Redskins don't have a first-round pick, but Dan Kadar recently added a second round to his mock. He had Washington selecting Florida International safety Jonathan Cyprien with the team's second-round pick. I'll allow him to explain.

Without a first-round pick, the Redskins need to hit in the second round. A pass coverage safety is a big-time need for Washington and the rising Cyprien is the best available.
