I will be doing trades, I am not using a trade-value chart so I may over-under pay for picks, if so sorry. I will try to make this mock a little interesting.
1. Indianpolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB
2. St. Louis Rams: Matt Kalil, OT
I think protecting Bradford's blindside for years to come is more important than acquiring an extra 2nd. They need to make sure Bradford has protection.
Minnesota receives the 2012: 1, 2 and 2013: 2, 4. Good trade for both sides
4. Cleveland Browns: Quinton Coples, DE
You always need pass rushers and getting the top pass rusher in the draft is a smart decision. The WR class is deep and the pass rush class is not. I also think that Coples has a strong showing at the combine
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, CB
Improve that backfield
6. Minnesota Vikings, from WAS: Riley Reiff, OT
Need a good tackle to protect Ponder.
The Jaguars get 2012: 1, 3 2013: 2,4 for the #7. The Jags don't really have a great value in terms of need and players. The Bears are also in dire need for a WR and they can get the top one on the board for not giving up too much.
8. Miami Dolphins: Michael Brockers, DT
This kid can line up opposite Cameron Wake or line up in the interior of the line. The Dolphins get a much needed pass rusher, and is one of the best on the board.
9. Carolina Panthers: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB
Improve that CB spot
10. Buffalo Bills: Melvin Ingram: DE/OLB
Fits system better than Upshaw since the Bills play a 4-3
11. Kansas City Chiefs: David DeCastro, OG
The O-Line is a major need and they get the best lineman on the board.
12. Seattle Seahawks: Nick Perry, OLB/DE
USC match between Carol and Perry. The Seahawks need a primary pass rusher and this man can provide that
Cardinals get 2012: 1, 3 2013: 3 and give up the 2012: 1, 5 An equal trade for both sides the Bengals get their RB of the future, and this way the Bengals will become one of the best offenses in the league. After this pick they can start to focus more on the D and making that Championship caliber.
14. Dallas Cowboys: Janoris Jenkins, CB
Best CB on the board and this guy has turned his life around.
Eagles get 2012: 1, 2 It is surprising that Martin lasted this long. The Lions need to make sure Stafford can stay healthy and the best way to do that is by getting Martin, arguably the 2nd best OT in the draft. For the Eagles, 15 is a little high for an ILB, usually ILBs go in the late 1 or in the 2nd.
16. New York Jets: Courtney Upshaw, OLB
This was a great situation for the Jets. If they don't get Upshaw they would have gotten Martin if not Martin then Upshaw. The Jets would love it if the board fell this way.
17. Arizona Cardinals, from CIN: Mike Adams, OT
They almost got lucky enough to get the man they would have taken at 13 but they another great value at 17.
18. San Diego Chargers: Whitney Mercilus, OLB, DE
the Chargers need more pass rushers and Mercilus could develop into a monster for them
19. Jacksonville Jaguars, from CHI: Michael Floyd, WR
get a good WR and picked up extra picks. I would consider this a good situation so far for the Jags.
20. Tennesse Titans: Peter Konz OC
INterior O-Line is needed
21. Cincinnati Bengals: TRADE to Baltimore Ravens: Luke Kuechly, ILB
Bengals get 2012: 1, 3 2013: 3, 4 The Bengals essentially counter-balance their trade with the Cardinals and get their picks back. There is no tremendous value available to the Bengals here so I see the Ravens trading up. They want Ray's successor and Luke would be a great guy to fill Ray's shoes (of possible).
22. Cleveland Browns: Kendall Wright, WR
Need to create some opportunity for Colt
23. Philadelphia Eagles, from DET: Dont'a Hightower, ILB
They lost Kuechly unforunatey but still put themselves in a position to grab one of the top 3 LBs in the draft. HIghtower is no bum and the Eagles will be happy to get him.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Vontaze Burfict, ILB
ILB is a huge need for the Steelers and unfortunately for them Hightower is gone. They do need an ILB and Burfict is certainly a 1st round talent. The Steeler's current group of guys will make Burfict more mature.
25. Denver Broncos: Devon Still, DT
Biggest need for the Broncos is filled
26. Houston Texans: Alshon Jeffrey, WR
The Best WR available on the board
27. New England Patriots: Fletcher Cox, DT
A good choice for Bill and the Pats, improves that front 7
28. Green Bay Packers: Andre Branch, DE
They need someone to rush the passer, they really missed Cullen Jenkins and Branch should be a good fix.
29. Cincinatti Bengals, from BAL: Cordy Glenn OG
Improve the O-Line and make their Offense very respectable.
30. San Francisco 49ers: Mohammad Sanu, WR
Need another WR to help Alex Smith in the passing game.
31. New England Patriots: Mark Barron, SS
It is a question as to why the Pats don't trade out. The reason why is because I think BIll realizes Brady is nearing the end of his career, he has accumulated enough picks to make a solid impact and improvement on his Defense.
32. New York Giants: Dwayne Allen TE
Just the popular pick and it makes sense considering the Giants do not have any elite TE
1. St. Louis Rams: Chase Minnifield, CB
2. Indianapolis Colts: Kelechi Osemele, OG
3. Minnesota Vikings: Alfonzo Dennard, CB
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Zach Brown, OLB
5. Cleveland Browns: Lamar Miller, RB
6. Jacksonville Jaguars: Stephen Gilmore, CB
7. Minnesota Vikings: Nick Toon, WR
8. Carolina Panthers: Brandon Thompson, DT
9. Buffalo Bills: TRADE to Cleveland Browns: Ryan Tannehill, QB
Bills get 2012:3 2013: 1
10. Miami Dolphins: Dontari Poe, NT
11. Seattle Seahawks: Nick Foles, QB
12. Kansas City Chiefs: Zebrie Sanders, OT
13. Dallas Cowboys: Brandon Washington, OG
14. Philadelphia Eagles: Markelle Martin, FS
15. New York Jets: Andrew Datko, OT
16. New England Patriots: Rueben Randle, WR
17.San Diego Chargers: Ronnel Lewis, LB
18. Chicago Bears: Kevin Zeitler, OG
19. Philadelphia Eagles: Tommy Streeter, WR
20. Tennesse Titans: Jayron Hosley, CB
21. Cincinnati Bengals: Leonard Johnson, CB
22. Detroit Lions: Lavonte David, LB
23. Atlanta Falcons: Coby Fleener, TE
24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alameda Ta'amu, NT
25. Denver Broncos: Josh Norman, CB
26. Houston Texans: Jamell Fleming, CB
27. New Orleans Saints: Bobby Wagner, OLB
28. Green Bay Packers: Vinny Curry, OLB
29. Baltimore Ravens: Stephen Hill, WR
30. San Francisco 49ers: Trumaire Johnson, CB
31. New England Patriots: Billy Winn, DE
32. New York Giants: Juron Criner, WR
