Three Round 2012 Mock Draft





Round 1
1 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/indianapolis_colts.png Andrew Luck
QB
Stanford
N/A
2 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/washington_redskins.png Robert Griffin III
QB
Baylor
N/A
3 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/minnesota_vikings.png Matt Kalil
OT
USC
If not for Luck and RG3, Kalil would be the #1 pick. This guy is up there with Jake Long/Joe Thomas.
4 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/browns_50t.png Trent Richardson
RB
Alabama
Cleveland needs to find a ton of talent before throwing a QB like Tannehill into the death pit that is the AFC North. Richardson rivals Adrian Peterson as far as draft prospect goes.
5 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/buccaneers_50t.png Morris Claiborne
CB
LSU
No brainer here, for the Bucs, not Claiborne of course.
6 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/rams_50t.png Michael Floyd
WR
Notre Dame
He has the better make-up of an elite WR than Blackmon does (which says alot because Blackmon is damn good as well)
7 Justin Blackmon
WR
Oklahoma State
Jags O-Line is solid, and why would they want to give up on Gabbert after 1 year? Give him someone like Blackmon to throw to.
8 http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xr2dQqRJsfM/Txdni5KW6YI/AAAAAAAAACI/VqIFBuhZoJ4/s45/miami_dolphins_logo-9183.gif Ryan Tannehill
QB
Texas A&M
Really don't like putting this guy in the top 10, but Ireland may get deported if he doesn't satisfy the QB position for these crazed Dolphins fans.
9 http://api.ning.com/files/uFLBuxNdlgOXXF4I-mzF7z*cofyMzfojup*q4PIZ8iwgAH*gUK1j9eypOUlBDBhWnFX3N2wsglYxx918FGj7Q7cDEuy1*L-d/panthers_logo.gif?crop=1%3A1&width=64 Fletcher Cox
DT
Mississippi State
This is a great, great pick for the Panthers. I really wanted to give them Hill here, but Cox could turn into a Jay Ratliff type player. Adds to an underrated defense.
10 http://s3.timetoast.com/public/uploads/photos/2085547/buffalo_bills_logo-9050_tiny.gif?1326309146 Melvin Ingram
OLB
South Carolina
Another pick of a player that is too good to pass up. Let Ingram come from behind Mario, Dareus, Williams and Anderson? Scary for Brady and Sanchez. None of the OT's are worth this high of a pick, Ingram is.
11 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/chiefs_50t.png David DeCastro
OG
Stanford
Some people think OT would be a better pick with Riley and Martin available, but they signed Eric Winston and LT Albert had a fantastic season last year. DeCastro ties everything together.
12 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/seahawks_50t.png Quinton Coples
DE
North Carolina
Coples paired together with a stud like Clemons would make a formidable pass rush.
13 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/cardinals_50t.png Luke Kuechly ILB
Boston College
Wanted to go with Jon Martin here, but Arizona resigned Levi Brown and you don't spend a pick this high on a RT. Kuechly is one of the top 5 football players in this draft. A "can't go wrong" type of pick.
14 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/cowboys_50t.png Mark Barron
S
Alabama
Even with the signing of Brodney Pool, Barron is a great pick for Dallas. Ball hawk type of Safety who is also a heavy hitter. He is everything Roy Williams wasn't.
15 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/eagles_50t.png Michael Brockers
DT
LSU
Eagles stay away from the Poe hype and grab a far more polished Defensive Tackle.
16 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/jets_50t.png Riley Reiff
OT
Stanford
RT Wayne Hunter gave up 11 sacks and had 11 penalties last year.
17 Stephen Hill
WR
Georgia Tech
Bengals don't let the Hill frenzy go on any longer. Pairing one of the rarest athletes at WR in NFL history with AJ Green, Gresham and a healthy Shipley? Glad Ravens have the best secondary in the league....
18 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/chargers_50t.png Cordy Glenn OG
Georgia
Kris Dielman retired, and he was a quality O-Lineman for SD. Glenn can play Guard or even possibly move to RT and take over for Jeromy Clary
19 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/bears_50t.png Jonathan Martin
OT
Stanford
Joe Webb gave up 12 sacks and 14 penalties last season. That cannot happen again.
20 http://www.fftoday.com/common/logo_ten_50.gif Dre Kirkpatrick
CB
Alabama
Losing Finnegan hurts. Although he was a trouble maker, he was a damn good player for Tennessee. Kirkpatrick would pair up nicely with Verner and McCourty
21 Stephen Gilmore
CB
South Carolina
Even with the signing of Newman, Gilmore is too good to pass up. Cinci finishes the first round with a nice pair of skill players.
22 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/browns_50t.png Kendall Wright
WR
Baylor
Like I said above, this team needs talent. Richardson and Wright in the 1st round adds explosion to their offense as well as points.
23 http://www.official-nfl-store.com/includes/templates/fan/images/team_logo/detroit_lions.gif Janoris Jenkins
CB
Northen Alabama
Just too good of a football player to pass up. Lions don't have many needs, but CB is one of them.
24 http://assets0.ordienetworks.com/images/user_photos/1243691/0b1878033a122c49c4a18466f784d673_square_medium.jpg Donta Hightower
ILB
Alabama
Pittsburgh loves LB's. They need a new one next to Timmons. Continue on with the tradition. This guy is a stud.
25 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/broncos_50t.png Dontari Poe NT
Memphis
Pure BPA here and fills a need to some extent. Poe is too athletically gifted to pass on this late.
26 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/texans_50t.png Nick Perry

OLB/DE

USC
The Texans want to take over the AFC South, and their defense is already scary good. Even with Reed and Barwin on the outside, adding a rotational guy like Perry would be a great move. Their team has very few holes.....if any.
27 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/patriots_50t.png Whitney Mercius
OLB/DE
Illinois
Lost their two best pass rushers, Carter and Anderson. They need to stop waiting around for some hidden gem to come in and give them 12 sacks. Mercilus can do that.
28 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/green_bay_packers.png Andre Branch
DE
Clemson
Isn't the elite pass rusher they are looking for, but a good player none the less who could very well be a double digit sack player down the road.
29 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/baltimore_ravens.png Courtney Upshaw
OLB
Alabama
BPA. This pick has Ozzie written all over it. We will find a way to make him effective.
30 http://www.nfldraft101.com/images/sfo.gif Devon Still
DT
Penn State
This team doesn't really need anything other than depth. Zeitler is a reach here sort of, and Still would provide depth behind Smith and McDonald. He is a FORCE.
31 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/patriots_50t.png Jerel Worthy
DT
Michigan State
New England improves the front seven in this draft. Pairing Worthy with Wilfork would be a force.
32 http://www.footballforum.com/images/FootballForum/misc/icons/ny-giants.gif Coby Fleener
TE
Stanford
Another pick I am tired of seeing, but it just adds to an already insane offense. Zeitler is a possibility here, so is Jeffery, but Fleener is a sure thing at TE.



Round 2
33 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/rams_50t.png Kevin Zeitler
OG
Wisconsin
Got someone to throw to, now just keep Bradford upright and open holes for Jackson.
34 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/indianapolis_colts.png Shea McClellin
OLB
Boise St.
Pagano is switching over to a 3-4 base, and he would love to get a beast like McClellin to fill that hybrid role.
35 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/minnesota_vikings.png Mohammed Sanu
WR
Rutgers
Nice pair for Ponder to throw to with Harvin already there. Sanu is a tough WR.
36 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/buccaneers_50t.png Doug Martin
RB
Boise State
Nice compliment to the power back, Blount.
37 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/browns_50t.png Brandon Boykin
CB
Georgia
Sheldon Brown is winding down his career. Skrine barely played. Good player to put next to Haden.
38 Chandler Jones
DE
Syracuse
Good, solid pick who may turn into a stud down the road.
39 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/rams_50t.png Kendall Reyes
DT
UCONN
Great player for Greg Willia......I mean good player.
40 http://api.ning.com/files/uFLBuxNdlgOXXF4I-mzF7z*cofyMzfojup*q4PIZ8iwgAH*gUK1j9eypOUlBDBhWnFX3N2wsglYxx918FGj7Q7cDEuy1*L-d/panthers_logo.gif?crop=1%3A1&width=64 Alshon Jeffery
WR
South Carolina
Signing Steve Smith was a very good move. Now give them another guy to go with Smith and LaFell. Carolina is turning into a force.
41 http://s3.timetoast.com/public/uploads/photos/2085547/buffalo_bills_logo-9050_tiny.gif?1326309146 Mike Adams OT
Ohio State
Still get a quality Left Tackle to replace Bell.
42 http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xr2dQqRJsfM/Txdni5KW6YI/AAAAAAAAACI/VqIFBuhZoJ4/s45/miami_dolphins_logo-9183.gif Reuben Randle
WR
LSU
Marshall gone. I hope Dolphins fans don't really believe that Bess and Hartline are the future?
43 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/seahawks_50t.png Zach Brown
LB
North Carolina
Seattle could use better coverage from their LB's and Brown is one of the best athletes in this draft.
44 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/chiefs_50t.png Brock Osweiler
QB
Arizona State
Chiefs miss on Tannehill, but get the strong arms Osweiler. I think Chiefs fans are starting to realize that Cassell was a mistake.
45 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/cowboys_50t.png Amini Silatolu
OG
Midwestern State
Cowboys miss on DeCastro in the first, but still get one mean SOB here with Silatolu.
46 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/eagles_50t.png Josh Robinson
CB
Central Florida
Speed demon to go with Asomugha and DRC.
47 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/jets_50t.png Alfonzo Denard
CB
Nebraska
Rex Ryan type of player, good in press coverage. Not sure how this recent arrest will hurt him.
48 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/patriots_50t.png Chase Minnefield
CB
Virginia
Patriots defense needs help everywhere.
49 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/chargers_50t.png Harrison Smith
SS
Notre Dame
Pure BPA. Nice player to pair with the young star, Weddle.
50 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/bears_50t.png Jayron Hosley
CB
Virginia Tech
Tough, smart player who could tear it up behind that pass rush.
51 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/eagles_50t.png Lavonte David
LB
Nebraska
Their offense is set, and their defense is starting to come together. David is a good player to compete with Matthews.
52 http://www.fftoday.com/common/logo_ten_50.gif Vinny Curry
DE
Marshall
Titans could use some pass rush help from their DE's.
53 David Wilson
RB
Virginia Tech
Benson is on the way out. Fans have supported Bernard Scott for too long.
54 http://www.official-nfl-store.com/includes/templates/fan/images/team_logo/detroit_lions.gif Bobby Massie
OT
Ole Miss
One of the better athletes along the O-Line in this draft. Keeping Stafford upright down the road could possibly lead to a Superbowl.
55 http://store.nike.com/nikestore/merchandising/mobile/storefronts/us/landing/football/img/logos/atlanta_falcons.png Peter Konz
OC
Wisconsin
Falcons would love to find a LT for the future, but that is tough to do without a 1st round pick. Konz could step in a Guard until Todd McClure is ready to step down.
56 http://assets0.ordienetworks.com/images/user_photos/1243691/0b1878033a122c49c4a18466f784d673_square_medium.jpg Kelechi Osemele
OT/OG
Iowa St.
Pittsburgh needs help at everywhere but Center
57 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/broncos_50t.png Mychal Kendricks
ILB
California
Great player to possibly take over for Joe Mays.
58 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/texans_50t.png Michael Schwartz
OT
California
Cut RT Eric Winston. Allen is rising up draft boards as well.
59 New Orleans




60 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/green_bay_packers.png Lamar Miller
RB
Miami
Ryan Grant may be on the way out, and Miller is a stud to pair with Starks.
61 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/baltimore_ravens.png AJ Jenkins
WR
Illinois
One of the best route runners and set of hands in this draft. Immediate contributor for the best QB in the league.
62 http://www.nfldraft101.com/images/sfo.gif Brandon Brooks
OG
Miami (Ohio)
Could stand to upgrade over Adam Snyder. Brooks would solidify one of the best, young O-Lines in the league.
63 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/patriots_50t.png Ronnell Lewis
OLB
Oklahoma
BB continues to add to his defense. Lewis is a stud.
64 http://www.footballforum.com/images/FootballForum/misc/icons/ny-giants.gif Markelle Martin
FS
Oklahoma St.
Martin should not make it out of the 2nd round at all, he is a premier talent in this draft that falls because of injuries. Adding Martin along with Rolle and Phillips would cause terror.




Round 3
65 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/indianapolis_colts.png Brian Quick
WR
Appalachian St.
A big, tall WR to pair with Wayne. Luck will start out with some quality pass catchers.
66 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/rams_50t.png Brandon Thompson
DT
Clemson
BPA here, helps patch up their D-Line even more
67 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/minnesota_vikings.png Brandon Taylor
S
LSU
Minnesota has an up and coming Safety in Mistral Reynolds. Putting Taylor next to him, although he is a SS, would not be a bad move.
68 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/browns_50t.png Brandon Weeden
QB
Oklahoma St.
Not the biggest fan of Weeden, but I think Cleveland holds out for either Barkley or Jones next year and gives Colt McCoy another shot. Weeden would add competition, possibly start.
69 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/buccaneers_50t.png Bobby Wagner
ILB
Utah St.
Another player that is flying up draft boards. TB could use help at ILB for sure.
70 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/washington_redskins.png Brandon Washington
OG
Miami
Help keep RG3 on his feet. The status on Lichtensteiger is still up in the air after ACL and MCL injuries.
71 Trumaine Johnson
CB
Montana
Gives them depth to a solid secondary that has Mathis and Ross in it.
72 http://s3.timetoast.com/public/uploads/photos/2085547/buffalo_bills_logo-9050_tiny.gif?1326309146 Jamell Flemming
CB
Okalhoma
Drayton Florence wasn't at his best in 2011.
73 http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xr2dQqRJsfM/Txdni5KW6YI/AAAAAAAAACI/VqIFBuhZoJ4/s45/miami_dolphins_logo-9183.gif Bruce Irvin
OLB
West Virginia
Pair this animal with Wake. Not good for opposing QB's.
74 http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Xr2dQqRJsfM/Txdni5KW6YI/AAAAAAAAACI/VqIFBuhZoJ4/s45/miami_dolphins_logo-9183.gif Brandon Mosley
OT
Auburn
Colombo allowed 9 sacks in 2011 and did not do much for Reggie Bush.
75 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/chiefs_50t.png Alameda Ta'amu
NT
Washington
Kelly Gregg is on the tail end of his career. Ta'amu is a beast.
76 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/seahawks_50t.png LaMichael James
RB
Oregon
Great change of pace back to the powerful Marshawn Lynch.
77 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/texans_50t.png Juron Criner
WR
Arizona
One of the better set of hands in this draft. Not the fastest guy, but tough as can be. Would fit in nicely next to Andre.
78 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/jets_50t.png Jared Crick
DE
Nebraska
Rex Ryan will find a way to use this crazy white boy.
79 Oakland




80 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/chargers_50t.png Cam Johnson
DE
Virginia
Could turn into a monster after sitting behind JJ for a few years.
81 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/bears_50t.png Dwayne Allen
TE
Clemson
Bears get a steal here and a nice option behind Kellen Davis.
82 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/cardinals_50t.png Zebrie Sanders
OT
Florida St.
Help across from Levi Brown.
83 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/cowboys_50t.png Ben Jones
OC
Georgia
4 years starter in the SEC. Even though Costa is a Terp, he had some piss poor performances last year.
84 http://www.fftoday.com/common/logo_ten_50.gif Michael Brewster
OC
Ohio state
Help for CJ2K.
85 Sean Spence
OLB
Miami
Losing Rivers doesn't hurt too much, but there is now an open roster spot at OLB.
86 http://store.nike.com/nikestore/merchandising/mobile/storefronts/us/landing/football/img/logos/atlanta_falcons.png Casey Heyward
CB
Vanderbilt
Nice nickel/dime option behind Robinson and Grimes
87 http://www.official-nfl-store.com/includes/templates/fan/images/team_logo/detroit_lions.gif Billy Winn
DE
Boise St.
Pure BPA here to add to an already vicious D-Line.
88 http://assets0.ordienetworks.com/images/user_photos/1243691/0b1878033a122c49c4a18466f784d673_square_medium.jpg Mike Martin DT
Michigan
Only thing worse than Big Ben's hat last year was some of the big time yards they gave up to good RB's.
89 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/broncos_50t.png Troy Brown
OG
Troy
Very good utility Lineman to keep Peyton on his feet.
90 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/eagles_50t.png Chris Polk
RB
Washington
Shady is a stud, but is Dion Lewis? Polk is a quality back.
91 http://store.nike.com/nikestore/merchandising/mobile/storefronts/us/landing/football/img/logos/new_orleans_saints.png Chris Givens
WR
Wake Forrest
Meachem left town for San Diego, Givens is a quality replacement.
92 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/green_bay_packers.png Orson Charles
TE
Georgia
Just another athletic freak for Rodgers to throw to.
93 http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images/team_logos/50x50/baltimore_ravens.png Josh LeRibeus
OG
Southern Methodist
Not being able to grab a Guard in the 1st two rounds, Ozzie picks up LeRibeus to compete with Jah Reid and others for Grubbs' old spot.
94 http://www.nfldraft101.com/images/sfo.gif Ladarius Green
TE
Louisiana-Lafayette
Maybe the steal of the 3rd round. Green could turn into a massive WR given how fast he is. Little Harbs loads up on trench players and play makers in this draft.
95 http://i.usatoday.net/_common/_images/_sports/logos/nfl/patriots_50t.png Senio Kelemete
OG
Washington
Quality depth to keep Brady upright.

96

http://www.footballforum.com/images/FootballForum/misc/icons/ny-giants.gif

Robert Turbin
RB
Utah St.
Turbin is flying up draft boards. His size and power cannot be ignored, and he would fill the hole left by Jacobs.
