Sudsy’s 2012 NFL Mock Draft 3.0

ROUND 1

1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck – QB – Stanford
Team Needs: QB, WR, OL, NT, CB, DE, LB depth
Luck is a done deal here.

2. Washington Redskins from StL: Robert Griffin III – QB – Baylor
Team Needs: QB, WR, RT, DB, Interior OL, DL, 3-4 ILB
Griffin is done deal here too.

3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil – OT – USC
Team Needs: CB, LT, S, OG, WR, LB, DT
The draft begins at this pick, Kahil is going to keeper Ponder safe and hopefully this will help him develop.

4. Cleveland Browns: Justin Blackmon – WR – Oklahoma State
Team Needs: QB, RB, FS, WR, OLB, DE, CB
I don’t think Cleveland is ready to throw in the towel on McCoy yet, so get him a weapon.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne – CB – LSU
Team Needs: CB, WR, C, LB, S, RB
I think this is a mistake, but they a CB more than another RB

6. St. Louis Rams from Was: Michael Floyd – WR – Notre Dame
Team Needs: WR, CB, SS, OL, DT, OLB, RB Depth
Wanted Blackmon, will settle for Floyd

7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Melvin Ingram – DE – South Carolina
Team Needs: WR, DE, CB, OL, FS, LB depth
With Floyd and Blackmon gone, they need get a DE instead.

8. Miami Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill – QB – Texas A and M
Team Needs: 4-3 DE, QB, OL, DL Depth, TE/WR, FS
I am afraid that they will just be drafting a QB again 2013, but a first year coach can’t afford to not win now.

9. Carolina Panthers: Michael Brockers – DT – LSU
Team Needs: CB, DT, WR, OL, DE depth, OL depth
A big DT will help this D-line a ton.

10. Buffalo Bills: Riley Reiff – OT – Iowa
Team Needs: DE, LB, OT, TE/WR, DL Depth, CB
They have committed to Fitzpatrick, now protect him.

11. Kansas City Chiefs: David DeCastro – G – Stanford
Team Needs: QB, NT, RT, C, RB depth, S, CB depth
They O-line help and DeCastro will provide that.

12. Seattle Seahawks: Quinton Coples – DE – North Carolina
Team Needs: QB, DE, OL depth, LB, CB, S depth
Coples will really help this defense get some QB pressure

13. Arizona Cardinals: Jonathan Martin – OT – Stanford
Team Needs: OT, 3-4 OLB depth, CB, TE, WR, DL depth
Now that Kolb got his money they have to protect him.

14. Dallas Cowboys: Dre Kirkpatrick – CB – Alabama
Team Needs: CB, Interior OL, DL depth, S depth, 3-4 OLB depth, 3-4 ILB depth
Might have off-field issues but, the Cowboys are used to that, so this is a good fit.

15. Philadelphia Eagles: Courtney Upshaw – DE/OLB – Alabama
Team Needs: MLB, OLB, WR, DT, Interior OL, SS
Upshaw will really help this LB core and provide a pass rush that was missing last year.

16. New York Jets: Trent Richardson – RB – Alabama
Team Needs: S, 3-4 OLB, WR, OL, DL Depth, QB, RB Depth
There is no way he drops this far, but in a world with no trades this could happen.


17. Cincinnati Bengals from Oak: Janoris Jenkins – CB – North Alabama
Team Needs: OG, CB, WR, RB, S, DL Depth
Another guy with some off field issues, but he has way too much talent to ignore.

18. San Diego Chargers: Mark Barron – SS – Alabama
Team Needs: 3-4 OLB, OT, SS, WR, Interior OL, RB depth, DL depth
This a great place to take the best Safety in the draft.

19. Chicago Bears: Cordy Glenn – G – Georgia
Team Needs: WR, Interior OL, FS, LB depth, DE, TE, CB depth
Protect Jay Cutler – Enough said.

20. Tennessee Titans: Chandler Jones – DE – Syracuse
Team Needs: DE, Interior OL, CB, SS, LB depth, WR
Missed on Mario Williams, now they can fill that need through he draft.

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Kendall Wright – WR – Baylor
Team Needs: OG, CB, WR, RB, S, DL Depth
This passing attack could great again with Dalton throwing to Wright and Green

22. Cleveland Browns from Atl: Lamar Miller – RB – Miami
Team Needs: QB, RB, FS, WR, OLB, DE, CB
With Blackmon and Miller this offense might have a chance.

23. Detroit Lions: Stephon Gilmore – CB – South Carolina
Team Needs: CB, LT, S, Interior OL, LB, DL Depth
This guy has great character and might end up being the CB in this class.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dontari Poe – NT – Memphis
Team Needs: NT, DL, OL, CB, LB Depth
A huge combine has jumped him into the 1st round.

25. Denver Broncos: Luke Kuechly – ILB – Boston College
Team Needs: CB, S, DL depth, ILB, RB, OL depth
Like Richardson there is no way he drops this far, but with out trades he could.

26. Houston Texans: Fletcher Cox – DT – Mississippi State
Team Needs: Interior OL, DL, OLB Depth, WR depth, CB, S depth
If this guy drops this far this is great value and fills a nice hole.

27. New England Patriots from NO: Don’t’a Hightower – ILB – Alabama
Team Needs: S, WR, DE/OLB, Interior OL, DL Depth, CB depth
Wow, if this guys to New England there run defense will improve instantly.

28. Green Bay Packers: Doug Martin – RB – Boise State
Team Needs: 3-4 OLB, 3-4 DE, Interior OL depth, DB depth, QB depth, RB depth
They a true #1 RB, this guy can carry that load.

29. Baltimore Ravens: Peter Konz – C – Wisconsin
Team Needs: Interior OL, S, WR, RB Depth, ILB, LT
Peter will be a great anchor to this line.

30. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Perry – DE/OLB – USC
Team Needs: WR, Interior OL, CB, DL depth, 3-4 OLB depth, RB depth
He would be a good fit for an already great defense.

31. New England Patriots: Whitney Mercilus – DE – Illinois
Team Needs: S, DE/OLB, Interior OL, DL Depth, CB depth
Another steal for New England, somehow the rich keep getting richer.

32. New York Giants: Coby Fleener – TE – Standford
Team Needs: OL, MLB, DL depth, CB Depth, WR depth, TE depth
When you win the Super Bowl your team is already very good, Fleener is a nice upgrade.
