2012 Full First Round Mock Draft


1. Indianapolis Colts – QB Andrew Luck – Stanford

Possibly the best quarterback prospect to come out in ten plus years. Irsay may have depleted this team of talent, but the Colts will be back within four years.

2. Washington Redskins – QB Robert Griffin III – Baylor

Griffin gives the ‘skins offense a spark that it has been missing for years. With the upgrades at Wide Receiver, the Redskins should have a dangerous offense.

3. Minnesota Vikings – LT Matt Kalil – USC

The best offensive line prospect in the draft should help solidify Minnesota’s young offense.

4. Cleveland Browns – RB Trent Richardson – Alabama

Cleveland has no talent at the running back position. Montario Hardesty shows promise, but is consistently hurt. Richardson is an all around back, who will help Cleveland’s offense in three important phases of the game (Rushing, Pass Protecting, Pass Catching).

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Morris Claiborne – LSU

Selecting the draft’s best defensive back, possibly the best defensive player, will help turn Tampa’s pass defense around quickly.

6. St. Louis Rams – WR Justin Blackmon – Oklahoma State

Giving QB Sam Bradford weapons is essential, Jeff Fisher knows this…

7. Jacksonville Jaguars – DE Melvin Ingram – South Carolina

Jacksonville’s defensive line has always been under sized and quick. Ingram is a versitile player

who Jacksonville’s coaching staff will fall in love with.

8. Miami Dolphins – QB Ryan Tannehill – Texas A&M

Although some may call this a reach, Miami has the pieces on offense (even after trading Marshall) to compete, all Miami needs is a quarterback. Tannehill is their guy.

9. Carolina Panthers – WR Michael Floyd – Notre Dame

Surprise! Selecting Floyd here will give Carolina a high potent offense to compete for a NFC South Title.

10. Buffalo Bills – DT Dontari Poe – Memphis

All I can say is that an already scary defensive line, will get a heck of a lot scarier with this selection.

11. Kansas City Chiefs – OG David DeCastro – Stanford

Pairing DeCastro with Winston would create a deadly duo, hopefully Kansas City feels the same way.

12. Seattle Seahawks – DT Michael Brockers – LSU

Seattle’s quick defensive line can use some help, Brockers can contribute right away.

13. Arizona Cardinals – OT Riley Reiff – Iowa

Arizona’s offensive line needs A LOT of help, Rieff can develop into a top tier right tackle, and has the ability to play left tackle.

14. Dallas Cowboys – CB/FS Dre Kirkpatrick – Alabama

Kirkpatrick’s versatility will entice Jerry Jones to pull the trigger. Even though this kid has some off the field issues, his upside is far too high to pass.

15. Philadelphia Eagles – DE Quinton Coples – UNC

With Coples’ slide, Philly will look to pull the trigger. With Coples, Philly’s defensive line will look very similar to the New York Giants.

16. New York Jets – OLB Nick Perry – USC

Rex Ryan will view Nick Perry as a new version of Terrell Suggs. Bottom line, AFC EAST…Watch out.

17. Cincinnati Bengals – WR Alshon Jeffery – South Carolina

Pairing Jeffery with AJ Green will give Andy Dalton more weapons to work with. This young offense should be able to take over Pittsburgh in a few years.

18. San Diego Chargers – WR Stephen Hill – Georgia Tech

After losing WR Vincent Jackson, San Diego will need to bring in more weapons for Philip Rivers to work with.

19. Chicago Bears – LB Luke Kuechly – Boston College

Kuechly is too talented to fall any farther, Chicago will look to stick Kuechly under Urlacher’s tutelage, eventually to be his replacement.

20. Tennessee Titans – CB Stephon Gilmore – South Carolina

After losing Cortland Finnegan, Tennessee will look to revamp the back-end of their defense with this talented corner.

21. Cincinnati Bengals – CB Janoris Jenkins – North Alabama

Despite his character concerns, Jenkins is a top talent. Cinci will look to help out their secondary by pairing Jenkins with Leon Hall.

22. Cleveland Browns – WR Kendall Wright – Baylor

In order for Colt McCoy to be successful, he needs weapons. RG3’s right hand man, will give McCoy just what he’s been dreaming of.

23. Detroit Lions – OL Cordy Glenn – Georgia

Matthew Stafford needs time to get the ball to his plethora of weapons, Cordy will help out Detroit’s atrocious offensive line.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers – OLB Courtney Upshaw – Alabama

Upshaw has been compared to Steelers OLB LaMarr Woodley. With this said, what better fit? Upshaw has the potential to be the eventual replacement for aging pass rusher, James Harrison.

25. Denver Broncos – RB Lamar Miller – Miami

It’s not only Manning time in Denver, it’s also MILLER TIME! Elway will give Manning something he hasn’t had for years, a dynamic running back.

26. Houston Texans – TE Coby Fleener – Stanford

Fleener would be a great fit in Houston. He is a decent blocker and will help take pressure off of Dre’. Luck’s right hand man will now be Schaub’s secondary target.

27. New England Patriots – DT Fletcher Cox – Mississippi St.

Cox is a versatile lineman who New England could fall in love with. His run stopping and pass rushing ability allows him to play tackle in a 4-3, and end in a 3-4.

28. Green Bay Packers – RB Doug Martin – Bosie St.

A little bit of a reach here, but Green Bay has been lacking a true Tailback for years. Martin is an all around back who can do everything asked of him. He should develop nicely in Green Bay’s offense.

29. Baltimore Ravens – ILB Dont’a Hightower – Alabama

Wow. Hightower will be paired with one of the greatest of all time for a few years. This defense could be scary good with Hightower and Lewis next to each other. Good luck running against Baltimore.

30. San Francisco 49er’s – C Peter Konz – Wisconsin

Even with the signing of Mario Manningham and Randy Moss, I was going to reach for Rueben Randle here, but Konz is a better selection. This would upgrade the line for not only Alex Smith, but also Frank Gore.

31. New England Patriots – SS Mark Barron Alabama

Barron has top 15 potential, but a hernia hurt his draft stock. Belichick not only gets Barron at a reduced price, but he also gets to pair Barron with Pat Chung to create a deadly duo.

32. New York Giants – OT Jonathan Martin – Stanford

Coughlin should be estatic to see Martin still on the board. Martin will be able to step right in and contribute immediately. Excellent pick up.
