01-30-2012

| Round 1 | Round 2 |

Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Indianapolis ColtsQBAndrew Luck #Stanford
 With the re-build in Indy under way, Andrew Luck is as simple a no-brainer as we've ever seen.
2Washington RedskinsQBRobert Griffin #Baylor
 (Trade from St. Louis) For Washington, it's simple. Another season with John Beck and Rex Grossman isn't going to work for the fan base. Acquiring a RGIII would be more than worth the price to move up.
3Minnesota VikingsOTMatt Kalil #USC
 Minnesota shocked everyone in 2011 when they draft QB Christian Ponder with the 12th pick, now it's time to protect that bold investment. Matt Kalil is as elite as any LT prospect NFL fans have seen since Joe Thomas.
4Cleveland BrownsCBMorris Claiborne #LSU
 Cleveland has consistently gone BPA since the Holmgren take over. Passing on an opportunity to pair Claiborne with Haden would be very difficult.
5Tampa Bay BuccaneersWRJustin Blackmon #Oklahoma State
 Tampa Bay has to upgrade offensive fire power, and keep pace with the explosion of the division. Drafting WR Justin Blackmon would put a smile on QB Josh Freeman's face.
6St. Louis RamsOTRiley Reiff #Iowa
 (Trade from Washington) Ideally St. Louis would like to see Justin Blackmon drop here, but Riley Reiff is a Jeff Fisher type of player and he'll make a great consolation prize.
7Jacksonville JaguarsDEQuinton CoplesNorth Carolina
 Coples demonstrated his dominant ability in the Senior Bowl, simultaneously justifying himself as a top-10 pick. Jacksonville has been desperate for a pass rush for a decade.
8Carolina PanthersDE/34LB/OLBCourtney UpshawAlabama
 (* Determined by a coin flip) Carolina thought they had the answer on the edge of the defense after they gave Charles Johnson a monster contract. Putting in Courtney Upshaw across from them could be what makes that investment worth-while.
9Miami DolphinsWRKendall WrightBaylor
 (* Determined by a coin flip) In Joe Philbin's spread-like offense, Wright could flourish under Brandon Marshall. While Wright may be a stretch at #9, there's always a stretch in April.
10Buffalo BillsDE/34LBMelvin IngramSouth Carolina
 A large part of Buffalo's loss of steam this season was their lack of pass rush. Adding Melvin Ingram would give Chan Gailey the young pass rusher they've lacked since Aaron Maybin's busting out.
11Kansas City ChiefsCBDre Kirkpatrick #Alabama
 New HC Romeo Crennel has been able to get solid corner play out of Brandon Carr and Brandon Flowers, but with Carr becoming a free agent GM Scott Pioli needs to find his replacement.
12Seattle SeahawksDTMichael Brockers #LSU
 Chris Clemons is a solid, serviceable NFL starter but Seattle doesn't have a blue chip defender in the front-7. Brockers might not be that guy day one, but expect him to have a Jason Pierre-Paul like impact in a few seasons.
13Arizona CardinalsOTMike AdamsOhio State
 Mike Adams is as talented as any offensive lineman available in this class. He was able to impress the draft community at the Senior Bowl, and he might even go higher than this.
14Dallas CowboysCBJanoris JenkinsNorth Ala.
 Dallas' secondary has been their Achilles heel over the past few seasons. Janoris Jenkins is a day one starter, and a future lockdown corner.
15Philadelphia EaglesILBLuke Kuechly #Boston College
 Brian Rolle, Jamar Cheney, and Casey Mathews all can run. However there isn't a single difference maker in the bunch. I'm as big of a Kuechly fan as there is, and he should be able to play day one.
16New York JetsWRAlshon Jeffery #South Carolina
 Jeffrey is as talented as any WR in this class, and the Jets have problems to solve in Mark Sanchez's arsenal. Santonio Holmes isn't likely to be back. Plaxico Burress spent his prime behind bars. Jeffrey makes lots of sense here.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17Cincinnati BengalsRBTrent Richardson #Alabama
 (from Raiders) For Bengals fans, this is a gift from the football Gods. It's hard to imagine Cincy doing anything but running to the podium if Richardson was on the board at #17.
18San Diego ChargersDE/34LB/OLBWhitney Mercilus #Illinois
 Whitney is one of the less heralded pass rushers of this draft class, but when all is said and done he could go much higher than #18 overall.
19Chicago BearsGDavid DeCastro #Stanford
 This would be a dream scenario for new HC Mike Tice, who is a former line coach himself. Now Chicago's awful offensive line instantly get a day one upgrade.
20Tennessee TitansDTDevon StillPenn State
 Some experts have placed Still in the top-10, but I've never heard his name mentioned there by an NFL person. He fits much better at #20 overall here to the Titans.
21Cincinnati BengalsGCordy GlennGeorgia
 Cordy Glenn had one of the Senior Bowl's best showing and historically those guys do excellently in the NFL ranks.
22Cleveland BrownsOLBZach BrownNorth Carolina
 (from Falcons) Cleveland lacks real explosion on both sides of the ball. Zach Brown is the type of boom or bust prospect that could change Cleveland's defense.
23Detroit LionsCBBrandon BoykinGeorgia
 Along with Cordy Glenn, Boykin made millions during Senior Bowl week. The top-25 isn't out of the realm of possibility for shutdown corners and Boykin flashed that ability in Mobile.
24Pittsburgh SteelersDTAlameda Ta'amuWashington
 Ta'amu may not be Haloti Ngata or Phil Taylor, but he's made in that mold. These type of size/athletic ability players go early and the Steelers would be happy to see him here at #24.
25Denver BroncosDT/DEFletcher Cox #Mississippi State
 Cox has been flying on my underrated list all season, and I fully expect him to be a first round pick. Denver is desperate for up-front help. Cox brings value with his versatility, he can mold to the multiple fronts the Broncos deploy.
26Houston TexansSMark BarronAlabama
 It's hard to find a hole in Houston's roster, but if there is one it's the secondary. Great pass rushes make mediocre secondary's better. Adding Mark Barron in the back half can only provide leadership to a young group.
27New England PatriotsDE/34LB/OLBNick Perry #USC
 (from Saints) While I may label Perry as overrated, he's still a tremendous value at #27. The former Trojan's explosiveness off the edge would give the Pats a weapon they don't have outside of Mark Anderson.
28Green Bay PackersCBAlfonzo DennardNebraska
 Some front offices will shy away from Dennard because of his slow 40 time, and reportedly negative Senior Bowl showing. However I don't see Ted Thompson passing on a classic press corner that could step in for Charles Woodson.
29Baltimore RavensOLB/ILBVontaze Burfict #Arizona State
 I've consistently put Burfict here consistently through the draft process, and I honestly see it as the best marriage for both sides. Burfict could learn the ropes from all-time great Ray Lewis, and eventually earn the throne to that LB spot.
30San Francisco 49ersWRMichael Floyd #Notre Dame
 (from Saints) San Francisco has surprised everyone, but without some fire power Alex Smith can only take Harbaugh and the crew so far. Floyd fits a need and value here at the back of the first round.
31New England PatriotsCBStephon Gilmore #South Carolina
 Stephen Gilmore has been quiet through the process, but he's a sure fire top-40 pick. New England needs help on defense in the worst way, and with their two first rounder's they've added huge talent.
32New York GiantsILBDont'a Hightower #Alabama
 I can't remember the last time the Giants weren't looking for a linebacker. They've been able to skate by with project guys, but with Hightower available here it's good much of a fit to pass up. project guys, but with Hightower available here it's good much of a fit to pass up.
