Mock Draft 3.0: 7 Round Mock Draft

Here's my seven round mock draft, took a while. I would love some feedback on it. If I have a player in multiple spots, let me know. I'll edit. Thank you.

Round 1

  • Indianapolis- Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford: He almost has to be the pick at this spot. With the Colts taking Luck, the goal now has to be to get some future weapons for him, as well as finding some long term pieces for a new 3-4 D
  • Washington- Robert Griffin, QB, Baylor: Whoever isn't taking out of the QB's at one, goes number two. Unlike the Colts, the Redskins have some pieces who can play, so the rebuild could be done with Griffin here.
  • Minnesota- Matt Kalil, OT, USC: The Vikings want to sell this pick and move down, but I think in the end, the asking price is too much, and they will settle on taking Matt Kalil, who's a potential franchise LT that provides protection for Christian Ponder
  • Cleveland- Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma St: The Browns could take Tannehill here, but the goal should be to give McCoy weapons. If that is indeed the case, Blackmon is the need to go opposite of Greg Little. Blackmon has #1 WR potential
  • Tampa Bay- Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU: The Bucs could use some help on defense. Talib is most likely to be cut, and with Eric Wright and Ronde Barber, the Bucs can use a #1 DB and Claiborne is the best on the board.
  • St. Louis- Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama: The Rams could use some help around Sam Bradford at both WR and RB. Richardson could certainly be a complement to Stephen Jackson, who isn't a spring chicken himself.
  • Jacksonville- Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina: The Jags can go anywhere with this pick. I think with no real pass catcher, they lean towards a pass rusher. Ingram fits the scheme and could start from day one.
  • Miami- Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M: After failing to get Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn, and settling on David Garrard, the Dolphins will need to look for QB who can give the fanbase hope, and that guy is Ryan Tannehill
  • Carolina- Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi St: The Panthers need someone who can disrupt from the defensive tackle spot. Fletcher Cox is the best defensive tackle on the board, and his ability to play DE in a 3-4 also helps his cause as well, just in case Carolina changes defensive philosophy
  • Buffalo- Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame: The Bills added Mario Williams and Mark Anderson on defense, so I think they lean offense. After Stevie Johnson, they need someone who can catch the ball, Floyd's stock has risen, and he could very well be the #2 WR who can be that man to attack in the middle of the field.
  • Kansas City- David DeCastro, OG, Stanford: The Chiefs could use some help inside at guard. With not too many major needs, the Chiefs can take a guy like DeCastro, who can start right away and anchor a line.
  • Seattle-Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama: The Seahawks can go anywhere at this time, I think Upshaw is a great fit. Not only does he provide some pass rushing ability at the DE spot, but he can stand up and be a OLB who can get to the QB in some packages.
  • Arizona- Riley Rieff, OT, Iowa: With no second round pick, this pick becomes REALLY important. Riley Rieff is someone who fits the Cardinals. With Levi Brown back, and Adam Synder added to this line, Rieff could be someone who can come in and be an effective
  • Dallas- Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis: The Cowboys have some needs, but Poe could fix so many things of the defense. If the Cowboys add Poe, he can allow Ratliff to move to a natural position of DE, and that should only help the defense.
  • Philadelphia- Michael Brockers, DT, LSU: With so many draft picks, the Eagles can make some noise in this draft. I think the DT spot is a spot that can use some depth. Michael Brockers has upside, but he might not be ready to be an impact player yet, so the Eagles can take him, and rotate him into the defense.
  • New York Jets- Quinton Couples, DE/OLB, North Carolina: The Jets need a weapon. Couples could be that man. His 6-6, 280 pound frame could give the Jets and Rex Ryan a weapon who can put his hand down as a defensive end, and be someone who can play OLB and attack the QB.
  • Cincinnati- Luke Kuechly, MLB, Boston College: The Bengals have been looking for a defensive leader, and with two first rounders, why not go for someone who could bring some order to your defense in Kuechly? His combine showed he's not slow, so why not take a day one starter?
  • San Diego- Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia: The Chargers can use some help on the defensive line. Cordy Glenn has some ability to not only play at guard, but he can also be a right tackle at times, and that will be coveted come draft day.
  • Chicago- Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina: The Bears could use another CB. Gilmore is someone with experience, and could play well against some of the top #2 WR's in the league. After Tillman, the Bears CB's are very lackluster.
  • Tennessee- Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech: The Titans can look at Konz, but I think Hill is a sneaky pick here. Britt is coming off an injury, and other then Williams? Noone is that great. I think the Titans can take Hill, groom him for a season, and unleash Williams, Britt, and Hill in 2013-2014 with Locker at the helm.
  • Cincinnati- Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin: After a monster defensive addition, help the offense. Konz can come in and be a starter day one, to a much improving offensive line. The question is do you take a C this high in the draft? My answer? Yes.
  • Cleveland- Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford: Cleveland could take a RB, CB, or even a DE here, but you need to keep your QB upright, and give your RB's some holes. Martin might not be a good LT with upside, but Martin could be a day one RT, and I feel he can be effective and a positive for that line.
  • Detroit- Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama: The Lions need a legit #1 CB, and Kirkpatrick can fit that bill. He has the size, speed, and quietly, the track record, defending against high level WR in the SEC, to be an effective CB in the league.
  • Pittsburgh- Donta Hightower, ILB, Alabama: Timmons is good, but Foote is on his last leg. Hightower here could give the Steelers some youth in the defensive department, and that's what they need. I think the Steelers look at the OL later in the draft.
  • Denver- Devon Still, DT, Penn St: With the addition of Manning, the Broncos should focus on defense. Still could be a very good DT, but the addition of Still gives the Broncos some youth to a position that needs more pieces.
  • Houston- Mike Adams, OT, Ohio St: The Texans could use someone who can catch outside of Andre Johnson, the Texans lost Eric Winston. Winston played RT and now, they need to replace him. Mike Adams has great upside, and that should be enough for the Texans to make that move.
  • New England- Whitney Mercilus, OLB, Illinois: The Pats could use a pass rusher. After Cunningham, the Pats don't have much. Mercilus has shown the ability to attack behind the line of scrimmage and get to the QB. He can also play DE as well.
  • Green Bay- Chandler Jones, OLB, Syracuse: The Packers can use someone opposite of Clay Matthews, and Jones could be someone who can fit the bill. While he doesn't have the resume of a first round pick, he provides versatility, and could be effective as a rookie.
  • Baltimore- Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor: If only Lee Evans held on to that ball. Either way, the Ravens can use a WR. Evans is getting older, but Boldin is as well. Wright can return punts and kicks and be a 3 or 4 WR as a rookie.
  • San Francisco- Nick Perry, OLB, USC: You can never have too much pass rushing. With no real OT to take here, the 49ers can add more pieces to that scary defense. Perry is somewhat of a project, but he can come in and attack the QB from a reserve role.
  • New England- Mark Barron, S, Alabama: After adding a pass rusher, the Pats could use some help at the safety spot. Mark Barron is a injury-risk, but he could very well be someone who can become a leader of the defensive backs with his ability.
  • New York Giants- Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama: The Giants have Webster, Amukamura, and Thomas. However, the Giants could use some more depth with the increased passing game. Jenkins can come in and learn the system and the league with no pressure and could eventually become a starter.
