Post Combine Mock Draft



Exactly what it says. 1 round goodness. Feedback appreciated.

Ind_medium



Andrew Luck, QB

Rumors are that Peyton will be released. I think Luck is the better prospect, so he goes first.

Washington trades 2012 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 2013 1st to select Robert Griffin III, QB

Washington gives up a king's ransom, but it is worth it to select the face of the franchise.

Min_medium


Matt Kalil, OT

A franchise LT, one of the best I've seen since Jake Long, to protect their franchise QB.

Cle_medium


Morris Claiborne, CB

They did not get RGIII, but they pick up one of the best CBs in CFB. A Patrick Peterson clone, he instantly forms one of the league's youngest dominant duo with Joe Haden.

Tb_medium


Trent Richardson, RB

Mike Mayock said the last time he would bang the table to select an RB this high would be Adrian Peterson. He's banging on the table for Richardson.

Stl_medium

Riley Reiff, OT

Despite having T-Rex arms, Reiff is a franchise RT. I think Saffold had a bad year, but ultimately still is the answer at LT. Adding Reiff would solidify the OT position and move Jason Smith over to G, which he may be more comfortable with.

Jac_medium


Melvin Ingram, DE

Ingram's stock has been on a meteoric rise since the end of the year, and his insane combine has done nothing to slow it down. The Jaguars can use a boost to their passrush.

Mia_medium


Quinton Coples, DE

Some may be turned off by his on-and-off motor, there's no denying the top ten talent.

Car_medium


Justin Blackmon, WR

WR isn't Carolina's biggest need at all, but adding a talent like Justin Blackmon next to Steve Smith can only add to the explosiveness of that offense under Cam Newton.

Buf_medium


Dre Kirkpatrick, CB

I know that the Bills hardly need a CB, and a more pressing concern would be the pass rush, but I think Courtney Upshaw's stock has dropped to the point where it wouldn't be great value. Kirkpatrick had a solid combine, and his size/speed upside should intrigue the Bills, who are known to develop strong secondary players.

Kc_medium


David DeCastro, OG

Nothing has changed in regards to this pick. He's still a monster who's stock is soaring.

Sea_medium


Courtney Upshaw, DE

I think that Upshaw's best fit is at 4-3 DE. He's a powerful pass rusher that will immediately upgrade Seattle's arsenal.

Arz_medium


Jonathon Martin, OT

The Cardinals need upgrades all across the line. Martin is still an excellent LT prospect that needs to get a bit stronger.

Dal_medium


Dontari Poe, NT

Part of the Cowboys' problem is the ability to create interior pressure from the DL and collapse the pocket. Poe, the combine's biggest winner, would help do just that, either spelling Ratliff, or sending him over to DE.

Phi_medium


Luke Kuechly, ILB

With rumors that Desean will eventually re-sign after being franchised, a WR doesn't make too much sense. Kuechly is the common salve to what ails the Eagles defense.

Nyj_medium


Michael Floyd, WR

The Jets have a myriad of issues to fix, including pass rusher, safety, and right tackle. I wouldn't consider WR a big one. This was basically a pure BPA selection. Plaxico doesn't look to be back, and they need a big play threat across from the mercurial Santonio Holmes.

Cin_medium


Janoris Jenkins, CB

Some people think Jenkins injured his draft stock by being so honest at the Combine. I think it only helped, as he seemed genuinely remorseful. He looked fluid in drills and had an insane 1.47 10-yard split.

Sd_medium


Cordy Glenn, OG

With Kris Dielman's sudden retirement, this becomes a no-brainer.

Chi_medium


Devon Still, DT

Had a very solid combine, and only confirmed his ascending stock. The Bears are thin at DT, and won't hesitate beefing up their line with powerful penetrator that is versatile enough to play 1 or 3 technique.

Ten_medium


Mark Barron, SS

The Titans will not waste an opportunity to fortify their safety corps with the most instinctual safety in the draft.

Cin_medium


Lamar Miller, RB

The combine really confirmed what was known about Miller all along, that he's explosive as all hell. Add to the fact that one of their coaches said adding a RB was a "priority," this selection makes a ton of sense.

Cle_medium


Kendall Wright, WR

I don't believe that 4.61 time for a second. Most scout times were in the low 4.4s to even the 4.3s. Wright will add explosiveness to the Cleveland offense.

Det_medium


Peter Konz, OC

Interior OL was an issue for the Lions, and the addition of Konz (who's poor combine won't hurt him) will add some juice to give Stafford extra protection.

Pit_medium


Dont'a Hightower, ILB

Cemented his 1st round status by running a low 4.6. Doesn't have the sideline-to-sideline range to work in a 4-3, but you won't find a better hard-hitting, superior instinct 3-4 thumper in the draft.

Den_medium


Michael Brockers, DT

Brockers' subpar combine had him falling all the way to the Denver pick. He's raw, and his athleticism was obviously overrated. That being said, he's flashed Nick Fairley potential. At the end of the day, I still think Denver gets a steal.

Hou_medium

Alshon Jeffery, WR


Yes, I know this may not be the preferred pick for many Texan fans. I think his stock takes a hit after his woeful combine no-show and reportedly bad interview. His game tape, however, is undeniable. I think he runs a 4.6 at his pro-day, and Houston takes him happily to pair across Andre Johnson.

Ne_medium


Stephen Hill, WR

Raw and unrefined? Yes. But how many 6'4 220lbs WRs do you see running 4.3's? Tom Brady will get him in line, and he'll be the burner that NE lacked this past season.

Gb_medium


Fletcher Cox, DE

He slimmed down to 298lbs and showed explosiveness with his 10 yard split. On top of that, his game tape shows impressive pass rushing ability. He'll fill in nicely as a GB DE.

Bal_medium


Whitney Mercilus, OLB

It isn't like Baltimore really needs another pass rusher, but this was a pure BPA selection and after his strong combine, will probably climb on big boards quickly.

Sf_medium


Chase Minnifield, CB

This is a worst-case scenario for the 49ers. They don't have very many glaring needs outside of WR. I considered Rueben Randle, but decided the value wasn't there. Minnifield hurt his stock by magically shrinking, but he was the BPA that intersected with need for the 49ers for me.

TRADE

Seattle swaps 2012 2nd rounders and gives 2013 1st round pick to select Ryan Tannehill, QB

Seattle trades up at the end of the 1st round to jump potential suitors for Tannehill's services in the early 2nd round. They now have the face of their franchise.

Nyg_medium


Andre Branch, DE

A DE that's got size (6'5 260+), speed (4.6), no character concerns, and from the ACC? Makes sense, and we need to start thinking about RDE after Osi. Also considered David Wilson and Dwayne Allen.
