Mock draft 4/20/2012 Round 1 1. Indianapolis (2-14): Andrew Luck (Stanford)- turn the page on the Manning era. 2. Washington (5-11): RG3 (Baylor)- The Skins have been desperate for a QB for a long time now. RG3 is a good one. They're going to be fully willing to do whatever necessary. 3. Minnesota (3-13) : Matt Kalil (USC)- They are in desperate need for a legit LT. They took their QB last year with Ponder now they can protect him with a better option than Charlie Johnson. 4. Cleveland (4-12): Trent Richardson (Bama)- Peyton Hillis is on the way out and the Browns need to add as many playmakers as possible. 5. Tampa Bay (4-12): Morris Claiborne (LSU)- Talib is out. Claiborne is in for his former DB's coach. 6. St. Louis (2-14): Justin Blackmon (Oklahoma St.)- The Rams need a playmaker on offense. Blackmon is a good WR and the Rams haven't had a good WR in awhile. They are apparently high on Blackmon, some have even suggested they may move up for him. 7. Jacksonville (5-11): Stephon Gilmore (South Carolina)- Gilmore's stock is jumping up right now. Jacksonville need secondary help in the worse way. 8. Miami (6-10): Ryan Tannehill (Texas a&m)- This is what happens when you lose out multiple times on a QB. You have to overdraft Tannehill. Tannehill has some good traits but this is way too early for a guy with 2nd round talent. The Dolphins don't really have a choice however. 9. Carolina (6-10): Fletcher Cox (Miss St.)- Cox gives Carolina a great DT to push the pocket. He can also help close up the run, a big need in Carolina. 10. Buffalo (6-10): Michael Floyd (Notre Dame)- A player with great measurables, Floyd would give the Bills a nice target. 11. Kansas City (7-9): Luke Kuechly (Boston College)- I would expect them to trade down but Kuechly is a great pick. KC lacks a great ILB and perhaps Pioli will want his own Bruschi. 12. Seattle (7-9): Nick Perry (USC)- Carrol is very familiar with Perry and needs a pass rusher. 13. Arizona (8-8): Riley Reiff (Iowa)- Reiff would give the Cards a O.lineman they can work with. 14. Dallas (8-8): S Mark Barron (Bama)- Barron gives the Cowboys a great player in the secondary and Dallas has done a nice job fixing the secondary up. 15. Philadelphia (8-8): DT Dontari Poe (Memphis)- Poe doesn't have to start immediately here and he can develop with help from the best D.line coach in the NFL. 16. New York Jets (8-8): Melvin Ingram (South Carolina)- An athletic pass rusher that Rex would love to have. This is amazing value. 17. Cincinnati - from Oakland (8-8): DE Quinton Coples (UNC)- Bengals make a great value here for a player with some issue but has great versatility. 18. San Diego (8-8): David Decastro (Stanford)- Easy pick here. Decastro is so very talented and is an elite interior prospect. 19. Chicago (8-8): Whitney Mercilus (Illinois)- Mercilus is a nice pass rusher. Opinions on him seem very very split. There is a need for a pass rusher opposite Peppers. 20. Tennessee (9-7): C Peter Konz (Wisconsin)- Konz is apparently very smart and would be great for a team that has struggled with the interior of its o.line since they release Kevin Mawae. 21. Cincinnati* (9-7): CB Dre Kirkpatrick (Bama)- Best player available here. He could play safety where there is a need or play CB where they need young talent. 22. Cleveland - from Atlanta* (10-6): Kendall Wright (Baylor) Wright is a speedy WR and that's one thing Cleveland's WR's have really lacked. 23. Detroit* (10-6): Jonathan Martin (Stanford)- Martin is a LT only and that hurts him quite a bit. Luckily for him, his slide stops here. Detroit needs a franchise LT to keep Stafford healthy. 24. Pittsburgh* (12-4): Cordy Glenn (UGA)- Glenn would be a great pick for Pittsburgh. He can play a variety of positions and Pitt need an infusion of youth on that O.line. 25. Denver* (8-8): Michael Brockers (LSU)- It's amazing Brockers could slip to here. He is a great prospect but there are other needs than a DT that many think isn't an effective pass rusher. 26. Houston* (10-6): Reuben Randle (LSU)- They need a great WR and Randle is very underrated. He would match well with Johnson. 27. New England - from New Orleans* (13-3): Shea Mcclellin (Boise St.)- Mcclellin is a nice pass rusher. 28. Green Bay* (15-1): Courtney Upshaw (Bama)- Upshaw would be the bookend to Matthews. I can't believe he is slipping. The guy is a great player who wins with effort and strength. 29. Baltimore* (12-4): Don'ta Hightower (Bama)- Hightower would give the Ravens another LB that would be great in their scheme to play next to Ray Lewis. 30. San Francisco* (13-3): Stephen Hill (GT)- Hill would give the 49ers the perfect WR to pair with Crabtree. They can let Moss and Manningham compete for the 3rd job. 31. New England* (13-3): Chandler Jones (Syracuse)- Jones is flying up draft boards. Comes from a very athletic family. 32. New York Giants* (9-7): Jerel Worthy (Michigan St.)- Worthy is a nice prospect but must improve his consistency. The Giants are one of the best teams in the league at developing D.linemen.
