NFL Mock Draft 4.1 (4:14 4/26)
Here you go, within minutes of the 2012 draft starting, here’s my final NFL Mock Draft of the 2012 Offseason with trades! I’ll refraim from attempting trades in the later rounds as they’re be a flurry of trades but there’s no way I can attempt to predict them. Enjoy:
UPDATE: The Cleveland Browns just traded up from 4 to 3 to draft RB Trent Richardson.
1. Indianapolis Colts – QB Andrew Luck Stanfurd
2. Washington Redskins (via STL) – QB Robert Griffin III Baylor
3. Cleveland Browns (via Minnesota) – RB Trent Richardson Alabama
4. Minnesota Vikings (via Cleveland) – OT Matt Kahil U$C
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Morris Claiborne LSU
6. St. Louis Rams (via Washington) – WR Justin Blackmon Oklahoma St.
7. Seattle Seahawks (via Jacksonville) – QB Ryan Tannenhill Texas A&M: Seattle moves up due to be enamored with the athletic Tannenhill, I guess Carroll is willing to give up a 3rd and next year’s 2nd to potentially pass on Barkley.
8. Philadelphia Eagles (via Miami) – DT Fletcher Cox Mississippi St: The Iggles give up Arizona’s 2nd round to move up to steal Cox before the Panthers can take him.
9. Carolina Panthers – CB Stephon Gilmore South Carolina
10. Dallas Cowboys (via Buffalo) – S Mark Barron Alabama: Dallas moves up to get ahead of Kansas City as they’ve been targeting Barron. They give up a 4th and next year’s 2nd to move up four spots.
11. Kansas City Chiefs – ILB Luke Kuechly Boston College
12. Jacksonville Jaguars (via Seattle) – DE Whitney Mercilus Illinois
13. Arizona Cardinals – OG David Decastro Stanfurd
14. Buffalo Bills (via Dallas) – OT Riley Reiff Iowa
15. Miami Dolphins (via Philadelphia) – DE Melvin Ingram South Carolina
16. New York Jets – DE Quinton Coples UNC
17. Cincinnati Bengals – WR Michael Floyd Notre Dame
18. San Diego Chargers – OG/OT Cordy Glenn Georgia
19. Chicago Bears – DT Dontari Poe Memphis: too much potential to pass up
20. Tennessee Titans – DT Michael Brockers LSU
21. Cincinnati Bengals – CB Janoris Jenkins North Alabama: Someone’s gonna bite on the troubled corner, Bengals have that track record.
22. Cleveland (via Atlanta) – WR Kendall Wright Baylor

25. Denver Broncos – RB Doug Martin Boise St
