I know, it's been a while, you al have missed me. I've been on this site multiple times a day but I've been way too busy to mock or comment as frequently as I used to. Finally Spring Break started so I decided to do a mock.
1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford:
2. TRADE (Rams get both Cleveland's firsts, 2012 3rd, and 2012 5th round pick for Rams #2) Cleveland Browns: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor: Holmgren and Co. have showed absolutely no improvement since taking over this franchise. They need to get on the right track fast and although a good QB won't make them an automatic contender it should help jump start them in that direction. As I predicted in the 2010 draft, Colt McCoy should be a backup.
3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC: Too early for Blackmon, and OT is much more important then CB with a young QB still learning.
4. St. Louis Rams (from Cleveland): Justin Blackmon, WR, OK St.: May be a tad early, but this is their biggest need
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU: This would be the ideal situation for the Bucs
7. TRADE (Jags get Seahawks 1st, 2nd for Jags #7 pick and 4th rounder): Seahawks: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M: Jumping ahead of the Phins, the Seahawks finally get their QB. If Locker can go top 10, I don't see why not Tannehill
8. Miami Dolphins: Quinton Coples, DE, UNC: Without the top QB's available, Might as well go BPA. Coples fits that here.
9. Carolina Panthers: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU: I think the poor combine shouldn't be a big deal for him. Bench pressing with his long arms is hard (I know as a 6'6 guy myself) and I couldn't give to @#$&'s what his 40 time is.
10. Buffalo Bills: Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina: It doesn't matter if the Bills go 4-3 or 3-4, they need a friggin pass rusher. With Johnson just signed this becomes a no brainer.
11. Kansas City Chiefs: Trent Richardson, RB, Bama: Again, I've been calling this for some time now, and I'm really hoping it doesn't happen. After losing out in my hypothetical bidding war with Seattle for Tannehill, they have to improve this offense somehow. Tagging Bowe narrows down this pick for me even more so. Also, Charles has yet to prove he's a workhorse back, so making sure they get a RB who can at least share the load is pretty imperative.
12. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Seattle): Michael Floyd, WR, ND: Jags get lukcy by trading out of the top 10 and still getting a blue chip prospect. Mark my words: Floyd will be the best WR to come out of this draft.
13. Arizona Cardinals: Jonathon Martin, OT, Stanford: His draft stock has seemingly plummeted. While I do agree he's not a top OT, I think he provides great value at 13.
14. Dallas Cowboys: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Bama: Even if the 'Boys land Carr, I really see him only as a top end #2 CB. Doubling down on CB could really improve this D to the level people expect it to play.
15. Philadelphia Eagles: Luke Kuechly, LB, BC: If Kuechly falls here, Reid has no choice but to snag him. His combine shut down any doubts about his athleticism and he fits a gaping hole in Reid's D.
16. New York Jets: Nick Perry, DE/OLB, USC: Some people are starting to doubt if he can play OLB in a 3-4. While Rex is an a-hole he does know how to utilize talent, and I figure he could find a way to use him like SF did with Aldon Smith.
17. Cincinatti Bengals (from Oakland): David Decastro, OG, Stanford: Sorry to temper people's expectations, but even 17 for an OG is extremely early. This is good value for a talented OG.
18. San Diego Chargers: Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Bama
19. Chicago Bears: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
20. Tennessee Titans: Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin: Munchack is an OL guy who doesn't like his current OL. If Decastro is not available Konz seems likely.
21. Cincinatti Bengals: Janoris Jenkins, CB, Northern Alabama: Good value here for a very talented CB with off field issues and a little undersized.
22. St. Louis Rams (from Cleveland from Atlanta): Devon Still, DT, Penn St.
23. Detroit Lions: Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia: he can be used at 3 spots on the OL, ossibly LT if their in a bind. He's already a talented OL and versatility makes him even more valuable.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis: this is one of those picks where if he's available he'll be the pick. He may not fall this far but I also don't believe he's the top 15 prospect some claim he is after his combine.
25. Denver Broncos: Fletcher Cox, DT, Miss. St.: This was tough between Mercilus and Cox. I went with Cox because he steps in at a bigger need and with Doom on the right, I'm not sure how well Mercilus would hold up on the left.
26. Houston Texans: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
27. New England Patriots: Whitney Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois: BPA here, and he should provide the edge rusher this D has lacked for years.
28. Green Bay Packers: Jerel Worthy DE/DT, MSU
29. Baltimore Ravens: Donta' Hightower, ILB, Bama: He's done so much this offseason to help his stock, but with questions about his sideline to sideline speed, teams may see him only as a 3-4 guy. In such an event, he could easily fall to the Ravens who would snatch him up in a heart beat.
30. San Fransisco 49ers: Stephen Gilmore, CB, South Carolina: He may have run himself into the first round. It was a tough choice between him and Randle but I went with Gilmore because even with a WR, I think this team will still be a run heavy O as long as Alex Smith is QB, which kinda lessens the value of a WR.
31. New England Patriots: Mark Barron, S, Bama: I'm a big fan of his, but I don't buy the top 20 stuff.
32. New York Giants: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami: At 32, this talented back with great speed is a no brainer in my eyes.
33. St. Louis Rams: Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
34. Indianapolis Colts: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
35. Minnesota Vikings: Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
36. Tampa Bay Bucs: Zach Brown, LB, UNC
37. Cleveland Browns: Mike Adams, OT, OSU
38. Jacksonville Jaguars: Andre Branch, DE, Clemson
39. Washington Redskins: Kevin Zietler, OG, Wisconsin
40. Carolina Panthers: Chase Minnifield, CB, UVA
41. Buffalo Bills: Kelechi Osmele, OG/OT, Iowa St.
42. Miami Dolphins: Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson
43. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Seattle:): Trumaine Johnson, CB, Montana
44. Kansas City Chiefs: Kendall Reyes, DT/DE, UCONN
45. Dallas Cowboys: Brandon Thompson, DE/DT, Clemson
46. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia
47. New York Jets: David Wilson, RB, Va Tech.
48. New England Patriots (from OAK): Dwight Bentley, CB, ULL
49. San Diego Chargers: Zebrie Sanders, OT, FSU
50. Chicago Bears: Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
51. Philadelphia (from AZ): Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers
52. Tennessee Titans: Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall
53. Cincinatti Bengals: Doug Martin, RB, BSU
54. Detroit Lions: Bobby Wagner, LB, USU
55. Atlanta Falcons: Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse
56. Pittsburgh Steelers: Amini Silotalu, OG, Midwestern St.
57. Denver Broncos: Jayron Hosley, CB, Va Tech
58. Houston Texans: Harrison Smith, SS, ND
59. New Orleans Saints: Lavonte David, LB, Nebraska
60. Green Bay Packers: Bruce Irvin, OLB, WVU
61. Baltimore Ravens: Ben Jones, OG/C, UGA
62. San Fransisco 49ers: Ronnell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
63. New England Patriots: Shea McClellin, DE/OLB, BSU
64. New York Giants: Orson Charles, TE, UGA
