I haven't done a mock in over a week, starting to have withdrawals. Won't do an explanation for everyone, and per usual order is from walterfootball.com. For the trades, try not to rip me for the exact picks in each trade, its pretty hard to figure out exactly. And I got so fed up with them I didn't do any for the 2nd.
1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
2. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC
3. St. Louis Rams: Justin Blackmon, WR, Ok. St.
4. Washington Redskins: Matt Barkley, QB, USC: RGIII will push Barkley for the #2 spot, but I think with Barkley's pro offense experience he will stay above the Heisman winner on most big boards. Barkley will impress a bunch of HC's/OC's in chalk and talk sessions, I do declare!
5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
6. Carolina Panthers: TRADE: Kansas City Chiefs give: #12, #43 (1670 combined value) for Panthers: #6 (1600 value), and some random later round pick (this is why I hate mocking trades): Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor: With Haley fired, this pick was locked to QB (or at least close to it). I guarantee that whoever is HC will walk in and think this team is a QB away from the playoffs, which isn't too much of a stretch. So, if the Chiefs play their way out of the top 10, I think they become a likely trading partner for teams looking to get out of the top 10.
7. Miami Dolphins: Jonathon Martin, OT, Stanford
8. Cleveland Browns:Trent Richardson, RB, Bama
9. Tampa Bay Bucaneers: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina: Still too early for Kirkpatrick, and getting a playmaker for Freeman is a must. A possession guy like Jeffery could help this O get back on track.
10. Philadelphia Eagles: Luke Kuechly, LB, BC: I know that Reid doesn't like drafting LB's early, but if he doesn't this year and he misses the playoffs next year, he'll be out of a job. The NFL is all about adapting
11. Buffalo Bills: Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa: BPA pick here, I think Reiff may find himself in the top 10, but if he falls out of it he won't be in the green room for long
12. Carolina Panthers (from KC): Zach Brown, OLB, UNC
13. Arizona Cardinals: Jarvis Jones, OLB, UGA
14. Seattle Seahawks: Quinton Coples, DE, UNC: Coples finished off the year nicely enough to be a top 10 pick, but if 3-4 teams dont see the scheme fit he could fall to here.
15. San Diego Chargers: Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Bama
16. Dallas Cowboys: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Bama
17. Tennessee Titans: David Decastro, OG, Stanford
18. Cincinatti Bengals: Alfonso Dennard, CB, Nebraska
19. Chicago Bears: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin
20. Cincinatti Bengals (from Oakland): Lamar Miller, RB, Miami: Maybe a little early, but this kids got the chance to be special.
21. Cleveland Browns: Michael Floyd, WR, ND: I don't know Holmgren and Co.'s policy on players with character concerns, but here is a major talent at the position of your biggest need. If he falls here I don't see how the Browns pass on him
22. New York Jets: Whitney Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois
23. Detroit Lions: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Northern Alabama
24. Houston Texans: Devon Still, DT, Penn St.
26. Denver Broncos: Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson
27. Baltimore Ravens: TRADE Miami Dolphins give: #38, #100, Ravens give: #27: Miami Dolphins: Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: Similar to the Chiefs trade, Phins are likely a lock for a QB.
28. San Fransisco 49ers: Chase Minnifield, CB, UVA
29. New England Patriots (from NO): Dwight Jones, WR, UNC
30. New England Patriots: TRADE Seattle Seahawks give 2013 first rounder, 2012 second round pick (#45), Patriots give pick #30, 2012 4th round pick: Seattle Seahawks select: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M: Sorry if this trade isn't extremely even, I did the same trade as the New Orleans one last year but gave the Seahawks an extra pick since their projected finish isn't as high as New Orleans' was last year. I'm expecting BB to dump one of these 1st rounders for a future 1st, per usual. Tannehill fits the ideal mobile QB role for Seattle, and although he's not as far along mentally as some of these QB's he should be able to start ahead of Whitehurst and Jackson
31. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis
32. Green Bay Packers: Jerel Worthy, DT/DE, MSU
33. Indianapolis Colts: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
34. St. Louis Rams: Kelechi Osmele, OT/OG, Iowa St.
35. Minnesota Vikings: Mohamad Sanu, WR, Rutgers
36. Jacksonville Jaguars: Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina: I know the Offense needs help, but I have Ingram as a first rounder, but he fell because he's only 4-3 compatable.
37. Carolina Panthers: Cordy Glenn, OG, UGA
38. Baltimore Ravens (from Miami): Donta' Hightower, ILB, Bama: I'm a big fan, but like Brandon Spikes, his inability to play anything besides 3-4 ILB may make him fall.
39. Cleveland Browns: Nick Foles, QB, Arizona: The Browns need to blow up the offense and start fresh. The turnaround may not happen as quickly for them as it did the Bengals but its necessary. McCoy is nothing more then an average QB, (at his best). A Foles-Floyd-Richardson tandem could be legendary.
40. Tampa Bay Bucaneers: Stephen Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
41. Washington Redskins: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
42. Buffalo Bills: Brandon Jenkins, OLB, FSU
43. Carolina Panthers (from KC): Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
44. Philadelphia Eagles: Alamada Ta'amu, DT, Washington
45. New England Patriots (from Seattle): Ronnell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
46. San Diego Chargers: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson
47. Philadelphia Eagles (from Arizona): Jayron Hosley, CB, Va Tech
48. Tennessee Titans: Nick Perry, DE, USC
49. Cincinatti Bengals: Levy Adcock, OT, Ok. St.
50. Chicago Bears: Markelle Martin, S, Ok St.
51. New England Patriots (from OAK): Fletcher Cox, DT/DE, Miss St.
52. Dallas Cowboys: Bruce Irvin, OLB, WVU
53. New York Jets: Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
54. Detroit Lions: Kevin Reddick, OLB, UNC
55. Atlanta Falcons: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall
56. Houston Texans: Zebrie Sanders, OT, FSU
57. New York Giants: David Wilson, RB, Va Tech: Lower then he'll likely go, but if you look, not many teams have a RB need.
58. Denver Broncos: Chris Polk, RB, Washington: Just missed out on great value at a big need, but Polk's a solid pick here.
59. San Fransisco 49ers:Kenny Tate, S, Maryland: Once the combine rolls around, I think teams will see the potential this dude has at Safety, and if he plays Safety well enough in bowl games, we could possibly see him in the first.
60. Baltimore Ravens: Billy Winn, DE/DT, BSU
61. New England Patriots: Jared Crick, DE/DT, Nebraska
63. Pittsburgh Steelers: Brandon Boykin, CB, UGA
64. Green Bay Packers: Kevin Zietler, OG, Wisconsin
