NFL Draft 2013: D.J. Fluker among 'rising' prospects

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Alabama's D.J. Fluker's stock is rising as teams throughout the league continue pre-draft visits and interviews, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The NFL Draft is just over two weeks away, and teams throughout the league are in the process of meeting with prospects, getting a better grasp on each player's draft stock. Alabama Crimson Tide offensive lineman D.J. Fluker is one of the prospects who is on the rise, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

In SB Nation's latest mock draft, the St. Louis Rams are projected to take Fluker with the No. 22 overall pick. Fluker would help shore up an offensive line that desperately needs to protect quarterback Sam Bradford.

If Fluker's stock continues to rise, a team like the Cowboys or Bears, who both need help on the offensive line, could take Fluker ahead of St. Louis.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar ranked Fluker as the 20th-best prospect available in the 2013 NFL Draft a month ago, and as the fourth-best offensive tackle prospect in the entire draft, behind Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson.
