Zach Bohner Three Round 2012 Mock Draft - Post Free Agency


If you follow me on twitter (@ZachBohner), you know that I like to project trades. I've deviated from that with this mock. This is more of a purist's mock.

| Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3 |

Round 1

1Indianapolis ColtsQBAndrew Luck #Stanford
 There has been recent speculation that RG3 could go here. Let's be serious about this. Luck has been the #1 college QB for several years. He's the pick.
2Washington RedskinsQBRobert Griffin #Baylor
 (from Rams) The Redskins didn't trade away two future 1's and this year's 2 to move up four spots for a tackle, wide receiver or corner. We know this pick is RG3.
3Minnesota VikingsOTMatt Kalil #USC
 Christian Ponder needs a beast to cover his blindside. Kalil is a monster. Arguments can be made for a receiver or Morris Claiborne here, but those needs can be filled later.
4Cleveland BrownsQBRyan TannehillTexas A&M
 Cleveland could go several different directions with this pick, but I don't think they will risk letting Tannehill fall to Miami at 8. The RB class is fairly deep and can be addressed later.
5Tampa Bay BuccaneersCBMorris Claiborne #LSU
 Tampa needs corner back help. This is one of the perfect cases where need and BPA meet. I can't imagine Tampa passing on Claiborne for Trent Richardson.
6St. Louis RamsWRMichael Floyd #Notre Dame
 (from Redskins) I'm not very high on Justin Blackmon, but I am very high on Kendall Wright and Michael Floyd. Even with the signing of Steve Smith, the Rams need tons of wide receiver help. One of the top three receivers will be the pick here.
7Jacksonville JaguarsWRKendall WrightBaylor
 I haven't seen a receiver mocked to Jacksonville very often, but it makes so much sense. Even with the Laurent Robinson signing, the Jags need WR help. Let's be honest, Robinson has only had one productive season in his career. There is a good chance he reverts back to mediocrity.
8Miami DolphinsOTRiley Reiff #Iowa
 I would love for Tannehill to slide to my beloved Dolphins, but I don't think that's realistic. Miami needs a franchise right tackle, and Reiff can fill that role. He could slide over to the left side if Jake Long isn't resigned in the offseason. That seems like a Stephen Ross type of move.
9Carolina PanthersWRJustin Blackmon #Oklahoma State
 Dontari Poe is the sexy pick here, but Carolina could use a future replacement for Steve Smith. I really like the young receivers in Carolina, but it's hard to pass up a promising prospect like Blackmon. The DT class is deep, so that need can be addressed later in the draft.
10Buffalo BillsOTJonathan Martin #Stanford
 This is undoubtedly a reach, but it's one that the Bills might have to make. They have no one to plug in at left tackle, and have already filled their need for pass rushers. Based on who is available, Martin is the BPA that makes sense for the Bills.
11Kansas City ChiefsDTDontari Poe #Memphis
 I don't really love this pick, but Poe has been flying up draft boards since his fantastic combine outing. Luke Kuechly or David DeCastro would make sense here, as well.
12Seattle SeahawksDEQuinton CoplesNorth Carolina
 Coples is a top 10 talent in this draft. Seattle takes the value pick here. He can start day one and terrorize the NFC West offensive linemen.
13Arizona CardinalsGDavid DeCastro #Stanford
 Arizona needs help along the offensive line. DeCastro is a top 6 talent in this draft, but he falls due to OG not being a high value position. This pick will help both the run and pass game.
14Dallas CowboysDT/DEFletcher Cox #Mississippi State
 Fletcher Cox is an amazing talent that fills a big need for the Cowboys. Jerry Jones needs to solidify both the offensive and defensive lines early in this draft. Check one need off.
15Philadelphia EaglesDTDevon StillPenn State
 Philadelphia could go in several different directions with this pick, but Still proves to be a solid value here. Courtney Upshaw, Luke Kuechly and Trent Richardson are the only remaining players left ranked higher than Still on my big board, but Upshaw doesn't fill as much of a need, Philadelphia just traded for DeMeco Ryans and LeSean McCoy already runs the ball.
16New York JetsRBTrent Richardson #Alabama
 I don't really think Richardson will fall all the way to 16, but I also don't think it is very likely that any of the teams picking ahead of the Jets will take him. A team will probably trade up for him. I wouldn't be surprised if that team was the Jets.
17Cincinnati BengalsILBLuke Kuechly #Boston College
 (from Raiders) I absolutely love Luke Kuechly. I think he is going to be a stud in the NFL. He falls because linebacker isn't considered as important a position as many others. He would be a great fit in Cincinnati.
18San Diego ChargersDE/34LB/OLBCourtney UpshawAlabama
 San Diego desperately needs to help its pass rush. Upshaw is a high upside player that should develop into a fantastic player for the Chargers. I have him rated as the 11th best player in this draft, so he could easily go higher than this.
19Chicago BearsGCordy GlennGeorgia
 Glenn could play tackle or guard. Chicago has found a play maker at wide receiver in Brandon Marshall, so they decide not to reach and take the best player available that fills a need.
20Tennessee TitansCBStephon Gilmore #South Carolina
 Tennessee needs to address the cornerback position early in this draft. Dre Kirkpatrick could be the pick here, but Gilmore is the safer pick due to Kirkpatrick's less than appealing history.
21Cincinnati BengalsCBDre Kirkpatrick #Alabama
 The Bengals have now used both of their first round selections on defensive players. They could use another receiver, but the value isn't there at this point. Cornerback is another huge need and will be filled with this selection.
22Cleveland BrownsRBDoug MartinBoise State
 (from Falcons) I am not a big supporter of drafting running backs in the first round, but Cleveland has a huge need for at least one. Martin is a very good player that would start day one.
23Detroit LionsDE/34LBMelvin IngramSouth Carolina
 What could possibly help Detroit's terrible secondary more that another fantastic defensive lineman? Obviously a top tier corner back would suit, but there isn't one left. This would make Detroit's defensive line one of the best in the league with Cliff Avril, Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley and Ingram.
24Pittsburgh SteelersDTMichael Brockers #LSU
 Pittsburgh has used high draft choices on both offensive and defensive linemen several times in recent years. With a talented player like Michael Brockers available at this selection, I don't expect that to change.
25Denver BroncosCPeter Konz #Wisconsin
 Peyton Manning has spent his entire career having a Pro Bowl caliber center snapping him the ball. JD Walton is nowhere near that quality. Peter Konz would make Manning's transition to Denver much easier.
26Houston TexansWRStephen Hill #Georgia Tech
 The Texans could use a burner on the outside to take some of the pressure off of Andre Johnson. Stephen Hill would fit that role perfectly. Hill didn't get a lot of targets in Georgia Tech's heavily fun dominated offense, but he had good production with the limited opportunities he received.
27New England PatriotsDE/34LB/OLBNick Perry #USC
 (from Saints) New England needs help in every level of their defense. With this pick they go BPA and find a great pass rusher at the same time.
28Green Bay PackersRBLamar Miller #Miami (FL)
 Green Bay has a fantastic passing offense, but the run game leaves much to be desired. Lamar Miller would add a much needed second dimension to this offense and keep opposing defenses honest.
29Baltimore RavensILBDont'a Hightower #Alabama
 Baltimore's linebacking corps is beginning to show its age. Hightower is a highly productive player that could step into Ray Lewis's shoes once he retires.
30San Francisco 49ersOT/GKelechi OsemeleIowa State
 Osemele is the highest rated player left that could contribute right away. He is an underrated player that would push for starting time immediately.
31New England PatriotsDTBrandon ThompsonClemson
 New England is now able to fill another huge hole in their defensive front seven with the selection of Brandon Thompson. Draftniks are split on how highly rated Thompson should be, but I think he is a very solid addition at this point of the draft.
32New York GiantsRBDavid Wilson #Virginia Tech
 As I stated earlier, I'm not a huge fan of running backs in the first round (even though I have four going). With that said, Wilson is highest rated player left on my big board that makes sense for the Giants at this point. They could take Coby Fleener here, but they signed Martellus Bennett earlier this month.
