Round 1

PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
1Indianapolis ColtsQBAndrew Luck #Stanford
 Andrew Luck is the safest QB prospect since the man he replaced: Peyton Manning. With Luck's understanding of the pro style offense he should adjust quickly to the NFL game.
2Washington RedskinsQBRobert Griffin #Baylor
 (from Rams) The Redskins mortgaged the future for what they hope is their first franchise quarterback since Joe Theisman. RG3 is underrated as a passer and clearly has athletic gifts that cannot be taught. Surrounding RG3 with weapons is a must in the future.
3Minnesota VikingsOTMatt Kalil #USC
 Even before Brett Favre retired, it was clear the Vikings had problem protecting the blind side. Keep in mind Kahil was such a dominant tackle in college that he forced last year's #9 overall pick Tyron Smith to play right tackle at USC in 2010. Good offensive play is even more critical considering Adrian Peterson may not be able to play early this season.
4Cleveland BrownsRBTrent Richardson #Alabama
 The Brown have zero offensive weapons that cause defensive coordinators to loose sleep. Mike Holmgren has a difficult choice between Trent Richardson and Justin Blackmon. We choose Richardson due to the scarcity of running back talent in this draft. The Browns will look to upgrade their other skill positions either later this round or early in round 2.
5Tampa Bay BuccaneersCBMorris Claiborne #LSU
 The Buccaneers will take Richardson if still on the board, if not they go for Morris Claiborne. Despite all of the free agent moves, they still have Ronde Barber as their top cover corner.
6St. Louis RamsWRJustin Blackmon #Oklahoma State
 (from Redskins) The Rams are desperate for weapons to surround Sam Bradford. After losing Brandon Lloyd to New England, the Rams are left with little talent at wide receiver. Blackmon is the most complete receiver in this class.
7Jacksonville JaguarsDEQuinton CoplesNorth Carolina
 Jacksonville has a tough decision to make if Justin Blackmon is off the board. Defensive end is a glaring weakness and do they choose between the highly productive Melvin Ingram or go with high ceiling prospect Quinton Coples? Coples has the length to knock down passes the line of scrimmage and that is critical in a pass happy AFC South.
8Miami DolphinsQBRyan TannehillTexas A&M
 (determined By Coin Flip) The only place Ryan Tannehill can succeed as a first round pick is Miami. With former college coach Mike Sherman as offensive coordinator and two veterans (Matt Moore and David Garrard) becoming free agents in 2013, this is an ideal situation for Tannehill. If Miami goes another direction, Tannehill likely falls into the 20's.
9Carolina PanthersDT/DEFletcher Cox #Mississippi State
 (determined By Coin Flip) Carolina had tremendous progress on offense thanks to Cam Newton in 2011. The defense is still a mess. Carolina has one of the worst defensive lines in the league, especially at tackle. Fletcher Cox is flexible enough to play in any scheme and could play left end if needed in a 4-3.
10Buffalo BillsWRMichael Floyd #Notre Dame
 Buffalo is usually unpredictable, but the smart pick is either Reilly Reiff or Michael Floyd here. The offensive line is a mess, but Buffalo lacks a physical presence at wide receiver. Floyd had some off the field issues, but the risk will be worth the reward in Chan Gailey's scheme.
11Kansas City ChiefsILBLuke Kuechly #Boston College
 The Chiefs are missing two key elements to run a traditional 3-4 scheme: Nose Tackle and a second inside linebacker. GM Scott Pioli generally goes for proven college football players and Kuechly has stellar track record.
12Seattle SeahawksDE/34LBMelvin IngramSouth Carolina
 (determined By Coin Flip) The Seahawks had another successful free agent campaign and can go a number of directions. Offensive line is an option, but they have used 3 high picks on lineman the last two years. The combination of Ingram and Chris Clemons could become game changers on defense.
13Arizona CardinalsOTRiley Reiff #Iowa
 The Cardinals are in complete shock that Reiff is still on the board. Reiff fills a major void at tackle which was exposed once Kurt Warner took his quick release to the broadcast booth. If the Cardinals can address the O-Line, the excuses will disappear for Kevin Kolb.
14Dallas CowboysSMark BarronAlabama
 The Cowboys were repeatedly torched on national tv by Eli Manning and Michael Vick. Defensive coordinator will continue to blitz regardless of the talent in his secondary. Barron is the most complete safety in this draft and its not close.
15Philadelphia EaglesDTDontari Poe #Memphis
 Dontari Poe could go as high as #9 to Carolina or fall into the twenties due to his inconsistent play in college. The Eagles lack a physical presence up the middle and Poe could help them improve a horrid run defense.
16New York JetsDE/34LB/OLBCourtney UpshawAlabama
 If the Jet defense want to take the next step, it needs to find a consistent pass rusher. Upshaw played in a 3-4 scheme in college and should adjust right away. Keep in mind the Jets also have major holes at guard and wide receiver.
PickTeamPosPlayerSchool
17Cincinnati BengalsGDavid DeCastro #Stanford
 (from Raiders) The Bengals offensive line struggled to create movement up the middle. Decastro is the most polished guard prospect since Steve Hutchinson. Cordy Glenn is also option due to his versatility.
18San Diego ChargersOTJonathan Martin #Stanford
 Interceptions and Norv Turner are just a couple of reasons why the Chargers continue to underachieve. Another factor is rushing the passer and protecting the passer. Jonathan Martin has fallen to the second round in a lot of mock drafts, but with the emphasis on the passing game, expect Martin to possibly go on day one.
19Chicago BearsCBDre Kirkpatrick #Alabama
 Offensive tackle is a huge need, but without a true franchise left tackle on the board, the Bears go for best available. Dre Kirkpatrick is a physical cover corner that will be an asset in a pass happy NFC North.
20Tennessee TitansGCordy GlennGeorgia
 Cordy Glenn is a versatile lineman who can play both guard and tackle. With a lot of money invested in Chris Johnson, the Titans must find a way to re-discover their once vaunted rushing attack.
21Cincinnati BengalsILBDont'a Hightower #Alabama
 With 7 corners already on roster, the Bengals may look in another direction in round one. Rey Maualuga has been average on the field and trouble off the field. Hightower can provide an on field general for a team that sometimes lacks focus.
22Cleveland BrownsCBStephon Gilmore #South Carolina
 The Browns are in desperate need of a wide receiver, but a talent like Gilmore would be hard to pass on. With Joe Haden and Stephon Gilmore, the Browns defense philosophy would change dramatically. Don't be surprised if Gilmore is off the board much sooner.
23Detroit LionsDE/34LB/OLBWhitney Mercilus #Illinois
 With the talent at corner and offensive tackle dropping off at this point in round 1, the Lions go for an impact pass rusher in round 1. Mercilus needs to upgrade his run defense, but would create an impact immediately in passing situations.
24Pittsburgh SteelersOTMike AdamsOhio State
 With Donta Hightower off the board, Pittsburgh must attempt to fix its talent deprived offensive line. Adams is a right tackle only prospect and will help in the running game.
25Denver BroncosDTMichael Brockers #LSU
 After signing Peyton Mannning, the Broncos can address the second biggest need: defensive tackle. Brockers is a disruptive force, who can immediately stabilize the middle of this defense. Don't be surprised if the Broncos move up to make sure they land a defensive tackle.
26Houston TexansWRKendall WrightBaylor
 The offense is completely different without Andre Johnson. Finding a complementary wide receiver is key to the long term success of this offense. Wright is a possession receiver with the speed to make big plays.
27New England PatriotsDE/34LB/OLBNick Perry #USC
 (from Saints) It was clear in the playoffs last year that New England must improve its pass rush to win another Super Bowl. The Patriots played a lot of 4-2 out of necessity and would shift back to a 3-4 with a pass rusher the caliber of Perry.
28Green Bay PackersDTDevon StillPenn State
 Outside of BJ Raji, the Packer defensive line was unproductive in 2012 Still has the ideal frame to play in a 3-4
29Baltimore RavensSHarrison SmithNotre Dame
 Ed Reed is a future Hall of Famer and now a major injury risk. Harrison Smith is an instinctive safety who won't make big mistakes in pass coverage.
30San Francisco 49ersCBJanoris JenkinsNorth Ala.
 Janoris Jenkins had his share of off the field problems at Florida, but its clear he has top 10 talent. The Niners have very few holes and can afford to take a risk on a talent like Janoris Jenkins.
31New England PatriotsDEChandler Jones #Syracuse
 The Patriots continue the pass rusher them with a second pass rusher in round 1. Jones is a naturally gifted pass rusher who is more comfortable with his hand on the ground, but is athletic enough to adjust to 3-4 OLB if necessary.
32New York GiantsRBDoug MartinBoise State
 The loss of Brandon Jacobs, creates a void in short yardage. Martin runs low to the ground always seems to fall forward. If Mike Adams or Jonathan Martin slip, expect the Giants to address their aging offensive line.
