2012 NFL Mock Draft

February 2nd 2012 13:54
This is my updated 2012 NFL mock draft written on January the 2nd 2012. Thanks for reading my updated 2012 NFL mock draft and please check the sources below for great mock draft sites.And you can see my Carolina Panthers mock draft here, ad my Denver Broncos mock draft here.

1 Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck QB- Stanford

The Colts will pick and try to sign Andrew Luck if he does not force a trade with his year of eligibility remaining. It is unclear if Peyton Manning will play again and even if he does Luck is the pick for the Colts.To see how I rank the top 5 quarterbacks in the 2012 NFL draft, click here.

2 St. Louis Rams Matt Kalil OL- USC

I fully expect the Rams to trade this pick to somebody who win want to draft Robert Griffin III. If the Ramís donít trade the pick it will be Matt Kalil who will help protect Sam Bradford. The Rams have too much money tied up in Bradford to give up on him now.

3 Minnesota Vikings Robert Griffin III QB- Baylor

The Vikings will take RG3 if he is available but if he is gone the Vikings will draft Blackmon..

4 Cleveland Browns- Trent Richardson RB- Alabama

The Browns could go with a quarterback here if RG3 falls or may trade up for him. Failing that Richardson will revive their running game.

5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Morris Claiborne DB- LSU

I expect the Bucs to trade this pick if a QB is on the board and somebody wants him. If they keep it Claiborne makes the most sense here in my 2012 NFL mock draft.

6 Washington Redskins Justin Blackmon WR- Oklahoma State

I think the Redskins will try to trade up for a quarterback but failing that Justin Blackman is the best offensive player on the board and they will take him.

7 Jacksonville Jaguars Riley Reiff OT-Iowa

The Jaguars would go QB if anyone slides down to them. But if not then Riley Reiff is a no brainer for the Jaguars in my updated 2012 NFL mock draft.

8 Miami Dolphins Ryan Tannehill QB-Texas A&M

Ok Tannehill is a reach here but the Dolphins need a QB unless they sign Flynn.


9 Carolina Panthers Quinton Coples DL- UNC

Coples is a beast who could play end or tackle and the Carolina Panthers need to give their dreadful defensive line some help.

10 Buffalo Bills Devon Still DT- Penn State

The Bills could go wide receiver here but I think they take Still who will help their defensive line for the next 10 years.

11 Seattle Seahawks Nice Foles QB Arizona

Another quarterback reach but the Seahawks are a QB away from being a pretty decent team.

12 Kansas City Chiefs Jonathan Martin OT-Stanford

The Chiefs had a great offensive line for years then it declined. Martin will be the start of its return.

13 Arizona Cardinals Dre Kirkpatrick CB- Alabama

The Cardinals score big time here by adding Kirkpatrick to team with 2011 rookie Patrick Peterson.

14 Dallas Cowboys Courtney Upshaw De-LB- Alabama

Upshaw will give the Cowboys more talent at linebacker if Dallas does not go for a defensive tackle or cornerback.

15 Philadelphia Eagles Michael Floyd WR- Notre Dame

Floyd is a good fit to replace DeSean Jackson if the Eagles let him leave as a free agent. Philly could go linebacker or offensive lineman here though.

16 New York Jets Melvin Ingram LB- South Carolina

Ingram can step in right away and help a Jets linebacking unit that got old.

17 Cincinnati Bengals (Raider trade) Kendall Wright WR- Baylor

Wright will add more pop to an already nice Bengals offense and supplement A.J. Green nicely.

18 San Diego Chargers David DeCastro G- Stanford

The Chargers snap up DeCastro the best offensive lineman on the board.

19 Chicago Bears Alshon Jeffery WR- South Carolina

Jefferyís stock dropped due to poor quarterback play at South Carolina but he is a steal for the Bears in my updated 2012 NFL mock draft.

20 Tennessee Titans Nick Perry DE- USC

If Perry falls this far the Titans will pick him in the 2012 NFL draft to give them some pop on the defensive line.

21 Cincinnati Bengals Fletcher Cox DT- Mississippi State

Cox adds some young legs and drive to an already decent Bengals defense

22 Cleveland Browns (from Atlanta) Luke Kuechly LB-Boston College

Kuechly will help turn around an anemic Cleveland Browns defense

23 Detroit Lions Lamar Miller RB-Miami

The Lions need running backs and Miller is the best left in my 2012 updated NFL mock draft.

24 Pittsburgh Steelers Brandon Washington OG- Miami

The Steelers will go for the best offensive lineman on the board here unless there is a RB they covet.

25 Denver Broncos Jared Crick DE- Nebraska

Crick will give John Fox another defensive lineman to help rebuild the Broncos defense with. With the Broncos going to the 4-3 they need to add good defensive linemen.

26 Houston Texans Reuben Randle WR- LSU

The Texans snap up the best offensive skill player on the board.

27 New England Patriots (from New Orleans) Mark Barron SS- Alabama

The Patriots address their terrible defensive secondary with this nice Alabama player

28 Green Bay Packers Jayron Hosley DB- Virginia Tech

The old Packers secondary gets some young legs with Hosley.

29 Baltimore Ravens Dontía Hightower LB-Alabama

Hightower is a good fit here for the Ravens who need some youth on the defense.

30 San Francisco 49ers Jerel Worthy DT- Michigan State

I kind of expect San Francisco to try to trade for Luck. Look for Worthy to be the pick here to add depth to a decent defensive line.

31 New England Patriots Whitney Mercilus DE-Illinois

An athletic pass rusher to help out the Patriots defense.

32 New York Giants Alfonzo Dennard CB- Nebraska

The Giants are a defensive minded team that needs young backs. Dennard is the best corner on the board in my 2012 NFL mock draft.

So, how is Devon Still going to help the Bills? He's a defensive tackle. The last time I checked, Kyle Williams is expected to be healthy at the start of training camp in 2012. Surgery to remove a bone spur on his heel leaves him feeling better since he has since early in his college career. He's had that bone spur that long. When healthy, Williams is a pro bowler. Buffalo is going to a 4-3 defense. That means Marcel Dareus is going to play inside like he did at a very high level the last half of the season when Kyle Williams was IRed so he could have his surgery. It's entirely possible that in 2012 Buffalo is going to have one of the scariest (for opponents) tandems of defensive tackles in the NFL, and with Torrel Troup (now healthy) and Kellen Heard, they have pretty good depth too. So, tell me again why Buffalo is going to draft another defensive tackle.

Most NFL teams rotate their defensive linemen and if you think Still can't help the team then you have been in too many frozen winters up there. I was thinking that Marcel would be an end though.

The Lions have drafted a running back in the first 2 rounds in consecutive years, they don't draft by other people's perceived needs but by best player available that makes sense for the team. Leshoure will be healthy next year, and even if Best can't play to complement him Kevin Smith is a decent backup. With who you have available Mark Barron would make a lot more sense to pair with Louis Delmas

To be honest I had forgotten about LeShoure.
