My Patriots Mock Draft:

  • 27: Nick Perry, DE
  • 31: Janoris Jenkins, CB
  • 48: Brandon Thompson, DT
  • 62: Alfonzo Dennard, CB
    • Dennard would be a higher pick if he didn’t attack a cop…
  • 93: Joe Adams, WR
  • 126: Charles Mitchell, S
    • I love Mitchell’s play at Mississippi State

My NFL Mock Draft (with out trades):

  1. Colts select Andrew Luck, QB
    • The Colts have already said they will draft Luck, who is the best QB prospect since Peyton Manning
  2. Redskins select Robert Griffin III, QB
    • The second best quarterback of this years draft, RG3 compares greatly to Aaron Rodgers. He also has a higher ceiling than Andew Luck, but caries a much lower floor
  3. Vikings select Matt Kalil, LT
    • The Vikings have been shopping this pick around, so don’t be surprised if they do trade down. If they don’t though, Kalil will be their man
  4. Browns select Trent Richardson, RB
    • I’m no sold on taking a running back this early, but the Browns have all but said they will draft Richardson
  5. Buccaneers select Morris Claiborne, CB
    •  Ronde Barber is 37 years of age and Aqib Talib is a mess. Claiborne will shore up the secondary and will provide instant playing time
  6. Rams select Justin Blackmon, WR
    • Sam Bradford has had zero targets in his two seasons in the NFL. The Rams take Blackmon to provide him with a threat. However, Michael Floyd, in my opinion, is the better receiver in this years draft
  7. Jaguars select Michael Floyd, WR
    • In my first mock, I had Melvin Ingram in this spot. Then I had Stephen Gilmore, and now Michael Floyd. Floyd will give the Jaguars a much needed threat
  8. Dolphins select Ryan Tannehill, QB
    • Tannehill is the closest thing to a franchise quarterback left in this years draft
  9. Panthers select Fletcher Cox, DT
    • If this draft was right after the Combine, Dontari Poe would be drafted in this spot. However, Poe is now considered a work out warrior, which has helped Cox’s rise. Did I mention that Fletcher Cox is pretty good too?
  10. Bills select Riley Reiff- OT
    • Reiff makes too much sense for the Bills to draft. He has the overall package to be a All-Pro and the Bills have a very leaky line that led to Ryan Fitzpatrick playing with broken ribs most of the latter half of the season.
  11. Chiefs select Luke Kuechly, ILB
    • Kuechly reminds me of Zack Thomas, which is a very good thing for the Chiefs
  12. Seahawks select Melvin Ingram, DE
  13. Cardinals select Cordy Glenn, OG
    • Glenn’s stock has shot up through the roof these past few weeks, the Cardinals pair him up with Levi Brown to give Kevin Kolb more than enough time to through the ball
  14. Cowboys select Mark Barron, S
    • First off let me say that I do not like Barron this high up. In fact, I like his teammate Dre Kirkpatrick more than him. However, the Cowboys want him according to many other draft pundits…
  15. Eagles select Quinton Coples, DE
    • If the draft was based on talent alone, Coples would be the first DE taken. The draft is based on more than that though, so Coples drops to the Eagles at Pick #15. I would not be surprised though if the Eagles draft Chandler Jones or Michael Brockers
  16. Jets select Courtney Upshaw, OLB
  17. Bengals select Dre Kirkpatrick, CB
    • Newly acquired corner Terence Newman is not more than a stop gap. The Bengals know this and without any pressing needs, they go out and get the next Nate Clements in Dre Kirkpatrick
  18. Chargers select David DeCastro, OG
    • The Chargers are one injury away on the offensive line from another disaster of a season. DeCastro will be an All-Pro and will be more than worth not drafting a pass rusher
  19. Bears select Chandler Jones, DE
    • I’ve heard two names popup constantly when you talk about who the Bears are going to draft, Chandler Jones and Whitney Mercilus. Jones is more polished than Mercilus, so the Bears draft Jones
  20. Titans select Stephen Gilmore, CB
    • Stephen Gilmore reminds me of Cortland Finnegan, the recently departed Titan
  21. Bengals select Jonathon Martin, OT
    • The Bengals shore up the offensive line to give Andy Dalton more time to connect to A.J. Green and possibly Doug Martin
  22. Browns select Kendall Wright, WR
    • Brandon Weeden will be a thought here, but the Browns can get him later on at Pick #37
  23. Lions select Courtney Upshaw, DE
  24. Steelers select Donta Hightower, LB
    • Initially I had Mike Adams here, but Hightower is the better value and player, so the Steelers go with the best overall player at this point
  25. Broncos select Michael Brockers, DT
    • The Broncos will be absolutely delighted if Brockers is still on the board at this point
  26. Texans select Stephen Hill, WR
    • The first  reach of the draft, Hill just reminds too many people of Calvin Johnson. Can you imagine having to go against Andre Johnson and Stephen Hill?
  27. Patriots select Nick Perry, DE
    • Perry is the best pass rasher at this point in the draft, and Perry has lots of ability and a high ceiling
  28. Packers select Shea McClellin, OLB 
  29. Ravens select Peter Konz, C
  30. 49ers select Rueben Randle, WR
    • The other reach of the first round, the 49ers take the dynamic Rueben Randle. Randle never had the type of production you would like of a 1st round receiver, but he never had a legitimate quarterback in Jordan Jefferson. He is very untapped and Jim Harbaugh knows this
  31. Patriots select Janoris Jenkins, CB
    • On talent alone, Jenkins is the best corner in this year’s draft. He has alot of problems with drugs and immaturity though. Coach Belichick has taken other drug risks like Aaron Hernandez and I don’t think the drug problems effect his decision with taking Jenkins
  32. Giants select Coby Fleener, TE
    • Fleener is the best tight end in a very weak class
