Mixing Things Up: A Different Mock

So, I decided that too many mocks focused on pleasing commenters rather than ingenuity. I know these picks may not be what you are used too, but I think its fun to diverge from the status quo. Anyways, without further ado, skip the jump to see my first mock.

  1. Indianapolis Colts- Andrew Luck Yah, I know, I promised ingenuity. There is just no way the Colts can pass on Luck. Sorry Redskin fans.
  2. Washington Redskins- Robert Griffen III This is like Luck, not up for question at all.
  3. Minnesota Vikings- Morris Claiborne In a move to please fans, the Vikings skip ugly OL help in Kalil and instead go for more of a skill position star.
  4. Cleveland Browns- Michael Floyd The Browns go with a WR for McCoy, but rather than Blackmon they go with Floyd, who I think is the top WR in this class.
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Justin Blackmon Although new coach Greg Schiano loves himself some Defense, he decides the potential to have a true number one WR is too much to pass up, frusturating the Rams who hoped to snag Blackmon a pick later.
  6. St. Louis Rams- TRADED to Lions for 2012 1st, 2012 6th, and 2013 1st. Trent Richardson With Javhid Best and Mikel LeShoure struggling to stay healthy, the Lions decide to go all in and form one of the leagues most lethal QB/RB/WR combos in Stafford, Richardson, and Calvin Johnson. The Rams desperately accept a stellar offer, frustrated at the Bucs for stealing Blackmon.
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Dre Kirkpatrick After watching their top two WR targets go in front of their eyes, they turn to the top CB left blending need and value.
  8. Miami Dolphins- Brock Osweiler With the head brass disappointed with Tannehill but feeling heat to get a franchise QB, the Dolphins call on the Arizona State giant. They love his size and potential, and hope to have solved the teams QB need.
  9. Carolina Panthers- TRADED to Arizona Cardinals for 2012 1st and 2012 3rd. Matt Kalil The Cardinals are absolutely thrilled to see Kalil fall, but are sure he wont last until their pick so they throw Carolina a trade they can't refuse.
  10. Buffalo Bills- Zach Brown Signing Mario Williams freed up the need for DE, so they now take Brown to solidify the LB corps as well. They love his potential to lock down the TEs of New England, and his all around speed.
  11. Kansas City Chiefs- Jon Martin The Chiefs war room was dead silent as they watched Kalil spiral down. They counted the spots left til their pick, but were heartbroken when the Cardinals jumped them to snag him. Still, the Chiefs were prepared, and Martin is a good consolation prize.
  12. Seattle Seahawks- Brandon Weeden After trying to fool teams all winter off of Weeden, the Seahawks are thrilled to have finally know their efforts paid off. While some don't like his age, the Seahawks feel they are ready to compete now so the added polish is actually a plus.
  13. Carolina Panthers- Dontario Poe The Panthers fall in love with workout warrior Poe at the combine, and here need fits value beautifully. They were going to take him anyways at 9, so the trade down to net an extra pick was a steal.
  14. Dallas Cowboys- David Decastro The Cowboys stay seated at 14 and get their guy.
  15. Philadelphia Eagles- Michael Brockers After considering a trade down, the Eagles decide they cannot pass up on Brockers' enormous potential.
  16. New York Jets- Melvin Ingram Somehow, Ingram falls to the Jets. Rex Ryan is excited to have a great pair of feet to work with.
  17. Cincinnati Bengals- Luke Kuechly Nobody benefited more from the Demeco Ryans trade than the Bengals, who can now get the stud MLB from Boston College.
  18. San Diego Chargers- Nick Perry The Chargers decide to take a risk on the boy from just north and slide him in as a rush LB/DE. He is a good fit for their defense, and the Chargers are happy to snag him.
  19. Chicago Bears- Reily Reiff The Bears decide to pair Reiff up with Carimi from last year to form a stellar group of tackles. They considered WRs but decided none were a good fit.
  20. Tennessee Titans- Quinten Coples The Titans have been very open regarding their quest for a pass rush, and land a huge steal here in Coples.
  21. Cincinnati Bengals- Josh Robinson The Bengals fall in love with the speed and cover skills offered by Robinson, and decide he will not last until their next pick. They recognize his huge potential and snatch him up to fill a need while providing decent value.
  22. Cleveland Browns- Ryan Tannehill The Browns watch as two QBs are taken after their first pick and realize that Colt McCoy is not going to win them a Super Bowl. They decide that while Tannehill is not perfect, he is at least better than McCoy.
  23. St. Louis Rams- Stephen Hill Using the pick acquired from the Lions, the Rams take who they think will become a star WR with size and speed to boot. They envision Sam Bradford hooking up with him for seasons of 30 yards per catch.
  24. Pittsburgh Steelers- Cordy Glenn The Steelers see Glenn at a tackle position in the future, and decide he is the perfect pick. He certainly blends need and value at 24.
  25. Denver Broncos- Doug Martin The Broncos realize that Moreno is too injury prone, and McGhee too old to provide a running game for Peyton so they grad the talented runner from Boise St.
  26. Houston Texans- Mohamed Sanu The Texans decide to make a lethal pairing, adding Sanu alongside Andre Johnson. Matt Schaub is reading this somewhere and needs new pants.
  27. New England Patriots- Janoris Jenkins The Patriots get another solid corner to line up across from Devin McCourty.
  28. Green Bay Packers- Courtney Upshaw The Packers think about trading up as they watch Ingram fall, but decide to stay put and end up getting a good fit and great value.
  29. Baltimore Ravens- Kendall Wright The Ravens take another speedster to pair up with Torrey Smith and give Flacco some targets who can catch the ball.
  30. San Francisco 49er's- Fletcher Cox Justin Smith is getting old, and Cox is a steal this late. They like his flexibility and decide he will continue the 49er's run of defensive dominance.
  31. New England Patriots- Mark Barron As witnessed in the Super Bowl, the Patriots secondary is really bad. They take Barron to go with Jenkins and really bolster the secondary in the draft.
  32. New York Giants- Devon Still The Giants always love getting pass rushers, and Still slips right down to them forcing their hand. The D-Line just keeps replenishing itself, and the Giants remain champions.

Thanks for reading, try not to be too harsh haha..
