Updated: 2012-04-01T02:40:26Z


1Indianapolis

QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
Colts hope he has a career like their previous quarterback.

2Washington


QB Robert Griffin III, Baylor
Washington traded up to draft Heisman Trophy winner.

3Minnesota

T Matt Kalil, USC
Vikings need to improve their offensive line; great place to start.

4Cleveland

QB Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M
Browns missed on attempted trade for RG3, settle for next best thing.

5Tampa Bay


CB Morris Claiborne, LSU
Bucs eventually will need to replace Ronde Barber at corner.

6St. Louis

WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma St.
Rams need a playmaker and this guy certainly qualifies.

7Jacksonville

DE Melvin Ingram, South Carolina
Think Tamba Hali. Specialty is rushing the quarterback.

8Miami

WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
Dolphins wanted Tannehill but would be happy with this big target.

9Carolina


DT Dontari Poe, Memphis
Loads of potential here for team in need of interior-line help.

10Buffalo

T Riley Reiff, Iowa
Bills need left tackle. Chiefs would take a look if heís still there at No. 11.

11Chiefs

LB Luke Kuechly, Boston College
Would be immediate defensive boost. Very athletic.

12Seattle

LB Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
Equally skilled against the run as he is against the pass.

13Arizona

G David DeCastro, Stanford
Part of the big line that protected this yearís top overall pick.

14Dallas

RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
Cowboys opt for backfield help, make Richardson first RB selected.

15Philadelphia

DT Michael Brockers, LSU
Rush defense gets a boost here. His 6-5, 322-frame is NFL-ready.

16New York Jets

DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina
Plenty of ability, but some scouts worry about his motor.

17Cincinnati

CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama
Needed insurance with DB Leon Hall coming off injury.

18San Diego

CB Stephon Gilmore, S. Carolina
Chargers could plug him in opposite Quentin Jammer.

19Chicago

T Jonathan Martin, Stanford
Another one of the road-graders who blocked for Luck.

20Tennessee

WR Kendall Wright, Baylor
Somebody had to haul in all those passes from RG3.

21Cincinnati

DE Nick Perry, USC
Has ability to get after the quarterback, which Bengals could use.

22Cleveland

WR Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech
Early-entry junior led the nation in yards per catch.

23Detroit

CB Janoris Jenkins, N. Alabama
Character concerns (run-ins with law), but talent is tantalizing.

24Pittsburgh

T Cordy Glenn, Georgia
A true brute at 6-6, 345 pounds. Big Ben would be his biggest fan.

25Denver

DT Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State
Would ease the sting of losing out on Jason Jones in free agency.

26Houston

TE Coby Fleener, Stanford
Has all the tools to be solid NFL tight end: 6-5, 240 and 4.5 speed.

27New England

LB Whitney Mercilus, Illinois
Started just one year (heís a junior) but can sure rush the passer.

28Green Bay

S Mark Barron, Alabama
Plenty athletic but coming off double-hernia surgery this offseason.

29Baltimore

LB Dontía Hightower, Alabama
Ex-teammate calls him ďa freak who can play any position.Ē

30San Francisco

C Peter Konz, Wisconsin
Left Badgers after junior year. Big (6-5, 315), strong and smart.

31New England

CB Trumaine Johnson, Montana
Four-year starter for Grizz picked off 15 passes as senior.

32New York Giants

DT Devon Still, Penn State
NYís D gets even tougher. Was Big 10 defensive player of year.

If Trent Richardson is sitting there at 11 and we either pass on him, or fail to find a trade down partner, I will lose it.

I'm not that high on Kuechly to begin with, but to take him in this spot when DeCastro, Richardson, Kirkpatrick, Gilmore, and Barron are around seems like a big waste. I'd rather have any of those guys than Kuechly. This might be one of the stranger mocks I've seen so far.

Yeah no kidding. In KC though we long for elite complimentary players and look for average at the impact positions.

I'm sorry but I don't see Philly not grabbing a OT with the injury to Peters.

There is no way the Bucs pass on Richardson.

Well Teicher is always wrong on these so no Kuechly for us.

They need a CB more than a HB. Claiborne is most likely their pick, IMO. They have LeGarrette Blount and he did a nice job for them.

They can still get a CB in the 2nd round. Plus they just signed Eric Wright to a huge deal.

Blount can't hold on to the football and he's not a every down back like Richardson is.

Understand that take, I just think the smart money is to get the player that can play for your team the next 10 plus years, especially when that fills a huge need with a quality player.


Keep in mind Ronde Barber is the other CB, he's on his last leg.

That makes 2 of us. We need RB Depth in the worst way. We have 2 broken RBs and then it is Battle time.

Hightower is a really bad MFer. Is there anybody who truly believes the Boston College kid is better than BOTH of the Bama LBers?

I don't. I'd take both of them before Kuechly. We probably won't do that, but that's why the Chiefs are the Chiefs.

C'mon...Kuechly has led the nation in tackles for the past two seasons and averaged nearly 16 a game in 2011. The guy had better combine numbers than Pat Willis and Jerod Mayo. He's incredibly athletic and one of the most instinctive and productive middle linebackers at the college level - ever.

Hightower doesn't give you anything that you already have with Belcher. Kuechly gives you the ability to effectively cover tight ends and backs in the passing game. He's a true three down player.

Having Kuechly and Johnson in the middle would be ridiculous.

Hightower is 260 and can only cover in zone packages. From what I saw of Houston last year, I don't want to take him off the field.
