2012 mock draft, take two
Posted by Evan Silva on April 9, 2012, 1:24 PM EDT

1. Colts: Andrew Luck, quarterback, Stanford.

Just as they did in ’98, the Colts play it safe at No. 1.

2. Redskins: Robert Griffin III, quarterback, Baylor.

RG3 will restore Washington as an NFC East contender.

3. Vikings: Matt Kalil, tackle, USC.

Minnesota can’t pass on the best left tackle in the draft.

4. Browns: Trent Richardson, running back, Alabama.

Cleveland must find a way to begin moving the chains.

5. Buccaneers: Michael Brockers, defensive lineman, LSU.

Greg Schiano wants to get more physical in the trenches.

6. Rams: Morris Claiborne, cornerback, LSU.

St. Louis spurns receivers in favor of the draft’s top defender.

7. Jaguars: Justin Blackmon, receiver, Oklahoma State.

The Jags pull the trigger to solidify Blaine Gabbert’s supporting cast.

8. Dolphins: Quinton Coples, defensive end, North Carolina.

The Fins will wait for their next second-round quarterback flop.

9. Panthers: Melvin Ingram, defensive end, South Carolina.

Ingram gives Carolina an impact bookend for Charles Johnson.

10. Bills: Riley Reiff, tackle, Iowa.

Buffalo uses its first-rounder on the draft’s second best tackle.

11. Chiefs: Ryan Tannehill, quarterback, Texas A&M.

Kansas City can’t pass on Tannehill if he slips past Miami.

12. Seahawks: Stephon Gilmore, cornerback, South Carolina.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll loves big, press-man corners.

13. Cardinals: David DeCastro, guard, Stanford.

Arizona will use this pick on the best offensive lineman left.

14. Cowboys: Dontari Poe, defensive tackle, Memphis.

It’s no secret that Dallas is high on Poe’s immense upside.

15. Eagles: Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle, Mississippi State.

Cox fits line coach Jim Washburn’s scheme as a gap shooter.

16. Jets: Michael Floyd, receiver, Notre Dame.

Floyd’s blocking ability will come in handy for the run-first Jets.

17. Bengals: Mark Barron, safety, Alabama.

He’s a natural replacement for Chris Crocker at strong safety.

18. Chargers: Courtney Upshaw, linebacker, Alabama.

San Diego can finally wash its hands of Larry English.

19. Bears: Whitney Mercilus, defensive end, Illinois.

The Bears believe pass rusher is their biggest draft need.

20. Titans: Cordy Glenn, guard, Georgia.

A college tackle, Glenn would kick inside for the Titans.

21. Bengals: Dre Kirkpatrick, cornerback, Alabama.

This pick may come down to Kirkpatrick vs. Janoris Jenkins.

22. Browns: Brandon Weeden, quarterback, Oklahoma State.

Weeden won’t struggle to defeat Colt McCoy in a camp battle.

23. Lions: Jonathan Martin, tackle, Stanford.

He could start at right tackle and eventually replace Jeff Backus.

24. Steelers: Coby Fleener, tight end, Stanford.

Pittsburgh passes on line help to draft the best player left.

25. Broncos: Doug Martin, running back, Boise State.

Peyton Manning will love Martin’s ability to pick up blitzers.

26. Texans: Kendall Wright, receiver, Baylor.

Wright adds a new dimension to Houston’s vertical pass game.

27. Patriots: Nick Perry, defensive end, USC.

A one-trick pony, Perry slips to the pass rush-needy Pats.

28. Packers: Shea McClellin, linebacker, Boise State.

He gives Green Bay a high-motor bookend for Clay Matthews.

29. Ravens: Rueben Randle, receiver, LSU.

Randle has a realistic chance to be this draft’s best receiver.

30. 49ers: Peter Konz, guard, Wisconsin.

Konz can play guard and center, both need areas in San Fran.

31. Patriots: Devon Still, defensive tackle, Penn State.

The best player left upgrades New England’s interior pass rush.

32. Giants: Luke Kuechly, linebacker, Boston College.

Kuechly drops because inside ‘backers are devalued in the NFL.

COACH

IS

ON

THE

DOLPHINS

STAFF.

SERIOUSLY.

If the DOLPHINS don't want Tannehill at EIGHT, even as they (a.) know him better than anybody else and (b.) have the league's biggest hole at QB, then the CHIEFS don't want him AT ELEVEN.

Most teams after 8 will feel the same way. If the Phins pass, it will be a huge red flag.

Tannehill will either go Top 8, or he will fall like a rock, deep into the twenties.

There is no way they take Tannehill. Everyone of Pioli's first round picks with the Chiefs have been on proven performers at a position of need.

After signing Quinn, drafting Stanzi and making every effort to form Cassel into an NFL quarterback, they are not going to take a guy who is exactly like Stanzi WITHOUT the college experience and production in the top ten. No fucking way on earth.

22. Browns: Brandon Weeden, quarterback, Oklahoma State.

Weeden won’t struggle to defeat Colt McCoy in a camp battle.

:doh!:

Not sure why the Browns would pass up on picking a WR and grab Weeden early when they are in a position to pick him in the second, if they really wanted him.

The Bucs are not taking another DT in the top 5. JFC.

I think or want to believe Direckshun and Saccapoo are right about this.

The Bucs will draft Claibourne if he is there. The Rams will draft Blackmon if he is there. Don't believe Miami will pass on Tannehill.

Gotta agree with Directshun, if the Fins pass on Tannehill, he'll drop until at least the Browns second pick, if not later.

No way Kuechly is on the board that late. He's a fucking stud that in a sane world would be the top overall pick.

Tannehill will either go Top 8, or he will fall like a rock, deep into the twenties.

Charlie Weis was telling anyone that would listen that Jimmy Clausen was the real deal, yet the Chiefs passed on him twice.

If the Phins pass on Tannehill, since Mike Sherman is just a voice in the background in the decision, it in no way reflects his feeling about Tannehill.

If Sherman were the actual decision maker and passed on him, that would be the red flag.

It's really very subtle, but that was sarcasm.

Actually, one of the best uses of subtle sarcasm I've seen.

McClellin, Doug Martin, Fleener, Weeden...

Christ this mock has some reaches. All of those guys are AT LEAST a round too early.

This is a very stupid draft.

^

No way do the Rams pass on Blackmon. They need weapons for their young big dollar QB, and no way does the QB starved Dolphins pass on Tannehill, which is fine with me.

Sherman may not be THE decision maker, but if a guy who was a head coach in the NFL for 5 years (now OC) is not influential enough to persuade the organization one way or the other on player that he directly coached, then the Dolphins have even bigger problems.

If you base your decisions on what Miami does you're too retarded for the Special Olympics.

Have you paid attention to the Dolphins at all?

That's a dysfunctional owner and franchise.

McClellin, Doug Martin, Fleener, Weeden...

Christ this mock has some reaches. All of those guys are AT LEAST a round too early.

And when did Tannehill become a "can't pass" on player?

Do these guys just forget years of game tape once the workouts and combines come around?

I do not disagree with that. My guess remains that Sherman will have a strong say in Tannehill or No Tannehill.

No I didn't. The Dolphins are the worst run franchise in the NFL right now. Tons and tons of owners that combined can't make a good decision to save their lives. At this point you'd almost be better to see what they are doing and do the exact opposite.

Plus King Carl is down there...we all know how much he likes 1st round QB's.
