Not many changes from my 4.0 Mock, but with the draft only days away, I felt like I should throw up one more! Man I love draft season!
1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck – QB – Standford
2. Washington Redskins from StL: Robert Griffen III – QB – Baylor
3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil – OT – USC
And also Done
4. Cleveland Browns: Trent Richardson – RB – Alabama
Could be an upset… but I doubt it
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne – CB – LSU
Corner is the biggest need…. still
6. St. Louis Rams from Was: Justin Blackmon – WR – Oklahoma State
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Floyd – WR – Notre Dame
I’m calling it now… Gilmore could happen.
8. Miami Dolphins: Quinton Coples – DE – North Carolina
Passrusher opposite Wake
9. Carolina Panthers: Luke Kuechly – ILB – Boston College
Captain of their Defense
10. Buffalo Bills: Riley Reiff – OT – Iowa
Not Sexy, but Effective.
11. Kansas City Chiefs: Ryan Tannehill – QB – Texas A&M
Groom behind Cassell for a year
12. Seattle Seahawks: Fletcher Cox – DT – Mississippi State
Fills a major need.
13. Arizona Cardinals: Melvin Ingram – DE – South Carolina
14. Dallas Cowboys: Mark Barron – S – Alabama
I don’t love him, but Dallas will.
15. Philadelphia Eagles: Dontari Poe – DT – Memphis
Reid loves linemen in round 1.
16. New York Jets: Courtney Upshaw – OLB – Alabama
They so need passrush
17. Cincinnati Bengals from Oak: David DeCastro – G – Stanford
DeCastro will make some RB look great
18. San Diego Chargers: Cordy Glenn – G – Georgia
They have to protect Rivers
19. Chicago Bears: Jonathan Martin – OT – Stanford
A reach, but one that they need. Have to keep Cutler healthy
20. Tennessee Titans: Michael Brockers – DT – LSU
BPA – Upgrades interior D
21. Cincinnati Bengals: Dre Kirkpatrick – CB – Alabama
To good to pass up here.
22. Cleveland Browns from Atl: Stephen Hill – WR – Georgia Tech
Hill, Little, Richardson…. now this team has some playmakers on offense.
23. Detroit Lions: Stephon Gilmore – CB – South Carolina
Secondary got torched
24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Mike Adams – OT – Ohio State
Starks ACL injury, Steelers have to keep Big Ben healthy
25. Denver Broncos: Dont’a Hightower – ILB – Alabama
Joe Mays isn’t special, Hightower is.
26. Houston Texans: Kendall Wright – WR – Baylor
Wideouts must be added.
27. New England Patriots from NO: Whitney Mercilus – DE – Illinois
28. Green Bay Packers: Nick Perry – DE – USC
and more pass rush!
29. Baltimore Ravens: Peter Konz – C – Wisconsin
I know it’s boring…
30. San Francisco 49ers: Coby Fleener – TE – Stanford
None of the best players match up with needs, trade here?
31. New England Patriots: Janoris Jenkins – CB – Illinois
Maybe the most gifted corner in the draft
32. New York Giants: Doug Martin – RB – Boise State
With Fleener off the board the Giants upgrade their running attack
