    1. Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
    As sure a thing as there is in the NFL Draft.

    2. Cleveland Browns (via St. Louis Rams) - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
    My only assumed trade. They have the ammo and the need.

    3. Minnesota Vikings - Matt Kalil, OT, USC
    Gotta protect Ponder, they invested a lot in the kid.

    4. St Louis Rams (via Cleveland Browns) - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
    They must be jealous of Stafford and Johnson in Detroit.

    5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
    One aging corner and one that can't stay out of trouble.

    6. Washington Redskins - Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
    Bit of a reach, but QB is the only position that makes sense this high.

    7. Jacksonville Jaguars - Quinton Coples, DE, UNC
    They love defensive linemen and Blackmon/Claiborne are out of play.

    8. Miami Dolphins - Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
    They started Marc Colombo. That should give you a clue as to their desperation.

    9. Carolina Panthers - Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
    I don't get the Brockers hype, but everyone seems to love him.

    10. Buffalo Bills - Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina
    They are switching to a 4-3 with some 3-4 sets, Ingram fits both schemes.

    11 Kansas City Chiefs - Riley Reiff, OT/OG, Iowa
    They need a RT badly, Barry Richardson is terrible.

    12. Seattle Seahawks - Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
    They love Lynch's physical style but he's an aging FA at an expendable position.

    13. Arizona Cardinals - Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
    Kuechly silenced all doubts about his athleticism at the combine. A safe pick.

    14. Dallas Cowboys - David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
    Jerry promised to take care of Romo, he keeps his promise.

    15. Philadelphia Eagles - Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
    I don't think they plan to keep Jackson long term, and Kuechly is off the board.

    16. New York Jets - Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
    Jim Leonard is a FA and can't stay healthy, Barron is better than most around here think.

    17. Cincinnati Bengals (via Oakland Raiders) - Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
    Bengals couldn't care less about his off-field issues.

    18. San Diego Chargers - Cordy Glenn, OG/RT, Georgia
    They have a need at both RT and OG, Glenn can play either and had a great combine.

    19. Chicago Bears - Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
    Amazingly enough, Roy Williams didn't work out. Shocker.

    20. Tennessee Titans - Dre' Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
    They could use some offensive line help, but they've got 5 FA's in the secondary.

    21. Cincinnati Bengals - David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech
    Cedric Benson is a FA and Wilson had a heck of a combine.

    22. St Louis Rams (via Cleveland Browns via Atlanta Falcons) - Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
    Saffold had a good rookie year but regressed as a junior. They draft the lazy Mike Adams.

    23. Detroit Lions - Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
    Remember the Lions were favorites to pick Amukamara last year, but they couldn't pass on Fairley.

    24. Pittsburgh Steelers - Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama
    Their LB's are getting up there in terms of age.

    25. Denver Broncos - Devon Still, DT, Penn State
    They need a DT, could be Poe here but Still has faced better competition.

    26. Houston Texans - Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
    They have Andre, so Hill will have time to transition.

    27. New England Patriots (via New Orleans Saints) - Whitney Mercilus, OLB, Illinois
    Patriots finally land that rusher they've been searching for.

    28. Green Bay Packers - Fletcher Cox, DE, Mississippi State
    Clay Matthews is all they have in terms of a pass rusher, and it showed last year.

    29. Baltimore Ravens - Rueben Randle, WR, LSU
    Boldin is getting up there, Evans was invisible most of the year and Smith is still learning.

    30. San Francisco 49ers - Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
    If they resign Carlos Rodgers, they'll look elsewhere, but he probably wants that last big contract.

    31. New England Patriots - Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
    The Pats land the athletic and versatile Poe, they aren't afraid to coach him up.

    32. New York Giants - Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
    Chase Blackburn played pretty well at ILB so they upgrade the TE position.

    Very nicely done.

    I was reading on KFFL that the Giants aren't intending on bringing back Blackburn. I actually thought he played pretty well for them. But TE makes sense regardless, imo.

    Also, with Poe, I wonder if he lasts until end of the 1st round (esp given all the hype, etc.)

    I like it. Very realistic. I think Carolina could go for Riley Reiff, though.

    lol, no one's spotted the glaring player missing from the first round.

    I think the Lions could probably take Upshaw over Dennard, especially if they don't resign Avril, not sure how I missed him. Or Perhaps to the Jets.

    Good mock. I doubt Poe will go nearly that low or Wilson nearly that high but otherwise looks very realistic.

    Damn, that would be a huge line in New England.

    Wilfork and Poe.

    Pundits are saying there will be a rush on D Linemen early. Poe, Cox and Still will all go much higher than you have them. DeCastro and Brockers will both be there at 14 and Jerry will disapoint us all and take Brockers because of the run on D Linemen. Cowboys are supposedly enamored with his 35 inch arm length, I am not enamored with his short area work out.


    The guy who will drop like a stone and shouldnt will be Richardson because of the position he plays.

    this is a very sensible projection in terms of realism, but i shake my head at a guard in the first round, it just isn't done, but who knows.

    Also Tannehill in the first round is like taking Cade McNown, Rex Grossman or Jim Druckenmiller in the first round....except higher, no good will come of that.
