Be gentle... 1 Indianapolis - Andrew Luck QB Stanford 2 Washington - Robert Griffin QB Baylor 3 Minnesota - Ryan Kalil OT USC I think the Vikings would love to trade back and take Claiborne, but I don't see any of the next couple of teams being eager to trade up, and I don't think Minnesota wants to trade back any furthur. In the end, they can't talk themselves into Claiborne here. 4 Cleveland - Trent Richardson RB Alabama. Again, I think they'd prefer to trade back, but will be unable. 5 Tampa Bay - Morris Claiborne CB LSU. A no-brainer if the draft works out this way. 6 St. Louis - Will Blackmon WR Oklahoma St 7 Jacksonville - Trade. Arizona moves up to get Tannehill QB Texas A&M. FU Miami. Jacksonville gets the Cardinals picks at 13 and 80. Cardinals get some insurance in case Kolb's concussions or general ineptness prove to be recurring. 8 Miami - Fletcher Cox DL Mississippi St - Frankly, the Dolphins caught a break -- Cox will probably help them more than Tannehill. 9 Carolina - Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame 10 Buffalo - Luke Kuechley LB Boston College 11 Kansas City - David DeCastro G Stanford 12 Seattle - Quinton Coples DE North Carolina 13 Jacksonville (from Arizona) - Stephon Gilmore CB South Carolina 14 Dallas - Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama 15 Philadelphia - Melvin Ingram DE South Carolina 16 NY Jets - Dontari Poe NT Memphis 17 Cincinnati (from Oakland) - Cordy Glenn G Georgia. If he's on the board, I don't see any way the Bengals pass him over. 18 San Diego - The Chargers have needs everywhere, and can take the best player available here. Who is that? For the system they run, probably Courtney Upshaw LB Alabama. 19 Chicago - Reilly Reiff OT Iowa. He's slipped a bit. Good for the Bears. 20 Tennessee - Michael Brockers DL LSU 21 Cincinnati - Janoris Jenkins CB North Alabama. Marvin Lewis never met a lost soul he didn't think he could reclaim. 22 Cleveland (from Atlanta) - The Browns need to find out if McCoy is legit. The way to do that is to get him some help. First was Richardson, now it's Stephen Hill WR Georgia Tech. 23 Detroit - Trade with Houston. Houston gets Donta Hightower LB Alabama before Pittsburgh does. Detroit gets #26 and other considerations that don't matter in a 2-round mock. Let's say Houston's two 4th rounders go to Detroit in the swap. 24 Pittsburgh - Mike Adams OT Ohio St. 25 Denver - Peter Konz C Wisconsin. The Broncos are a center away from having a dominant OL. Fox and Manning seem like guys who would want that. 26 Detroit (from Houston) Trade to Philadelphia for Samuel and #51 with an exchange of lower picks. The Eagles take Mark Barron S Alabama, as they can envision the Patriots taking the next Brian Dawkins. 27 New England (from New Orleans) Well, who you got? The choice of Mercilus, Perry, and McClellin is here. Or would you rather go for Still or Worthy? Or Wright? I'm not sure anybody is eager to trade into this spot, so we'll have to use it. I really want to go defense all the way in the early rounds, but Wright is the only one I feel is a legit 1st round talent for this team, and we clearly need some WR youth. But sometimes you have to roll the dice on a guy who might need some time to develop, but if he's well coached, he can grow into a game-changer. I'm going to take Mercilus OLB Illinois here. 28 Green Bay - Devon Still DE Penn St. 29 Baltimore - The Ravens have some critical needs along the O-line and at linebacker and in an ideal world would like to trade back for some more picks, but I don't see that happening. We'll give them Chandler Jones LB Syracuse here to play with his brother Arthur. 30 San Francisco - Jonathan Martin OT Stanford 31 New England - I've changed my mind about trading down here, because I don't see anybody that another team needs badly enough to trade up to get. Does Miami want to come up from 42 for a quarterback? I don't think they'd want to trade with Belichick when they can probably make that trade just as easily with the next 5 teams. Does anybody love Fleener? Perry? One of the second-tier running backs? If the Patriots can't work a deal, I'll give them Kendall Wright. But wait. We might find a trading partner, if say, there's a team in the NFC with a former Belichick associate running the draft whose pass-catching tight end is aging quickly and is in a win-now window and won't get Fleener if they stay where they were? I just can't imagine the Patriots making both 1st round picks, so let's trade it to Atlanta for #55, a sixth, and next year's first. Coby Fleener TE Stanford is the pick. Bama and Stanford own the first round. 32 New York Giants - The Giants don't have a whole lot of pressing needs, but with Jacobs gone and Bradshaw unreliable, Doug Martin RB Boise St makes sense here. Second round 33 St. Louis - Jerel Worthy DE Michigan St 34 Indianapolis - Kendall Reyes DT Connecticut 35 Minnesota - Harrison Smith S Notre Dame 36 Tampa Bay - David Wilson RB Virginia Tech 37 Cleveland - Brandon Weedon QB Oklahoma St 38 Jacksonville - Kendall Wright WR Baylor 39 St. Louis (from Washington) - Bobby Massie OT Mississippi 40 Carolina - Brandon Thompson DT Clemson 41 Buffalo - Amini Silatolu OL Midwestern St 42 Miami - Kirk Cousins QB Michigan St 43 Seattle - Vinny Curry LB Marshall 44 Kansas City - Shea McClellin LB Boise St 45 Dallas - Reuben Randle WR LSU 46 Philadelphia - Jayron Hosley CB Virginia Tech 47 NY Jets - Nick Perry OLB USC. This seems a little low, but these things happen sometimes. 48 New England (from Oakland) - I think Dennard or Sanu could be the pick here, as they both seem like Belichick-type guys. I think it might come down to which one is more likely to be there at 55. Although the next five teams could draft a WR, I'll opt for Alfonzo Dennard CB Nebraska at 48 and hope for the best - corners typically being higher in demand. Every Nebraska game I watched in 2010, the talking heads kept talking up Amukamara, but Dennard was the one who caught my eye. 49 San Diego -Jeff Allen OT Illinois 50 Chicago - Alshon Jeffery WR South Carolina 51 Detroit (from Arizona) - Welcome to the party Lions. Their first pick in the draft is Kevin Zeitler OL Wisconsin. They still pick before New Orleans and Oakland. 52 Tennessee - Trumaine Johnson CB Montana 53 Cincinnati - Lavonte David LB Nebraska 54 Detroit - George Iloka S Boise St 55 New England (from Atlanta) - Mohamed Sanu WR Rutgers. He seems to be a high character athlete out of Rutgers. He'll fit in fine, assuming he can help out on Teams. 56 Pittsburgh - Lamar Miller RB Miami (Florida) 57 Denver - Zach Brown LB North Carolina 58 Houston - Andre Branch OLB Clemson 59 Green Bay - Bruce Irvin OLB West Virginia 60 Baltimore - Ben Jones C Georgia 61 San Francisco - Brandon Brooks G Miami (Ohio) 62 New England - Brandon Boykin CB Georgia. I'm keeping my eye on Markelle Martin, but I'll gamble we can get him next round. If he does nothing else, Boykin will improve our return game a hundredfold. 63 New York Giants - Jared Crick DE Nebraska seems to be a perfect replacement for Tolleson along the front line.
