Al Fronczak's 2012 NFL Mock Draft
Final Mock
04/25
Al Fronczak's Second Round Mock

Our NFL Draft News page  has Breaking News, and Al's Inside Scoop on the Draft.

This is my final mock for the 2012 NFL Draft. I don't have any trades included in my final mock since it's nearly impossible to project what the teams will do in the first round. -Al Fronczak


1. Indianapolis Colts - QB Andrew Luck (Stanford)...The pick will be Stanford QB Andrew Luck for the Colts as their new face of the franchise.

2. Washington Redskins (Trade from St. Louis) - QB Robert Griffin III (Baylor)...The Redskins get their man!...Griffin has the athleticism to be a perfect fit in Shanahan's offense.

3. Minnesota Vikings - OT Matt Kalil (USC)...The Vikings have talked about trading down or taking CB Claiborne here, but Kalil fills a huge need and is the best player on their board. 

4. Cleveland Browns - WR Justin Blackmon (Oklahoma State)...The Browns plan to revamp their offense and start with the best WR in the draft since he will rate higher than Floyd on their board...Richardson would be the pick if he were on the board, but the Bucs will likely move ahead of the Browns to secure his services.

5. Tampa Bay Bucs - HB Trent Richardson (Alabama)...The Bucs get the player that new head coach Greg Schiano covets in this draft...Don't be surprised if they move ahead of the Browns for Richardson.

6. St. Louis Rams  (Trade from Washington) - CB Morris Claiborne (LSU)...The Rams moved down, got a slew of picks and still land one of the players they wanted in the draft.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars - CB Stephon Gilmore (South Carolina)..The Jaguars would love to move down from this pick, but they fill a huge need with Gilmore here.

8. Miami Dolphins - QB Ryan Tannehill (Texas A&M)...The Dolphins failed to land Manning, passed on Flynn, and now take their QB of the future who played for OC Mike Sherman at A&M.

9. Carolina Panthers - DT Fletcher Cox (Mississippi State)...Cox will fill a huge need on the defensive side of the ball for the Panthers defensive line.

10. Buffalo Bills - LB Luke Kuechly (Boston College)...Kuechly is a perfect fit in Dave Wannstedt's defense which requires the MLB to have sideline to sideline range and be able to cover a TE...Kuechly is also a great fit as a WLB as well...Kuechly is a bigger version of Zach Thomas who played for Wannstedt in Miami.

11. Kansas City Chiefs - DE/DT Michael Brockers (LSU)...The Chiefs could trade down with the Cowboys and take Brockers who would be a great fit as a five-technique in their scheme.

12. Seattle Seahawks - DE Quinton Coples (North Carolina)...The Seahawks fill a big need on the defensive side of the ball and head coach Pete Carroll feels he can get the most out of Coples.

13. Arizona Cardinals - WR Michael Floyd (Notre Dame)...The Cardinals need help on their O-Line but the opt for a playmaker that can take pressure off of Larry Fitzgerald.

14. Dallas Cowboys - SS Mark Barron (Alabama)...The Cowboys fill a huge need with this pick and feel Barron will provide a huge upgrade to their secondary.

15. Philadelphia Eagles - DT Dontari Poe (Memphis)...Andy Reid has a history of using high picks to bolster his lines and this year is no different with the selection of Poe, who they feel can be special.

16. New York Jets - OT/OG Cordy Glenn (Georgia)...The Jets plan is to find a pass-rusher for Rex Ryan's defense and to bolster their O-Line with a player that can play OG or kick outside to RT.

17. Cincinnati Bengals -WR Kendall Wright (Baylor)...The Bengals find a player who they feel can take pressure off of A.J. Green and move the chains in their offense.

18. San Diego Chargers - OLB Whitney Mercilus (Illinois)..The Chargers would love to move down from this pick, but resist the temptation and take a player from Illinois with their first pick for the second time in two years...The Chargers feel Mercilus can bring the heat off the edge.

19. Chicago Bears - DE Melvin Ingram (South Carolina)...The Bears signed a couple of CBs in free-agency, so addressing their need at DE to play opposite of Julius Peppers is a top priority.

20. Tennessee Titans - OG David DeCastro (Stanford)...The Titans fill a huge need for the middle of their O-Line with this pick...DeCastro is Mike Munchak's type of lineman.

21. Cincinnati Bengals - DE Nick Perry (USC)...The Bengals defensive line took a couple of hits in FA...Perry is a good fit for the Bengals defense and can bring some heat off the edge.

22. Cleveland Browns - HB Doug Martin (Boise State)...The Browns have filled two needs in the draft on the offensive side of the ball now with the selection of Martin here.

23. Detroit Lions - OG/OT Riley Reiff (Iowa)...Reiff has slipped in the draft and is the pick for the Lions since the top two CBs have come off the board and Kirkpatrick won't be considered.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers - ILB Donta' Hightower (Alabama)...Filling needs at NT and OT are high priorities but none are worthy of this pick...Hightower is still available and a great fit for their 3-4 scheme.

25. Denver Broncos - CB Dre' Kirkpatrick (Alabama)...The Broncos need help at CB for their aging secondary and are elated that Kirkpatrick has slipped through the cracks.

26. Houston Texans - TE Coby Fleener (Stanford)...The Texans need another playmaker at the WR position to take the heat off of Andre Johnson but can't resist Fleener here.

27. New England Patriots (from Saints) - DE Chandler Jones (Syracuse)..Jones has the versatility to play DE in their 4-3 scheme or standup as an OLB when they use a 3-4 front.

28. Green Bay Packers - OLB Shea McClellin (Boise State)...The Packers need to find a pass-rusher for the defensive side of the ball and feel McClellin can be a fit at OLB in their 3-4 scheme.

29. Baltimore Ravens - OG/OC Kevin Zeitler (Wisconsin)...The Ravens have a history of taking players that have fallen through the cracks but the team has a need in the middle of their line.

30. San Francisco 49ers - OG Amini Silatolu (Midwestern St.)...Silatolu is the type of physical OG that the Niners love and can step in from day one and fill the void left by the departure of Adam Snyder in FA.

31. New England Patriots - WR Stephen Hill (Georgia Tech)...The Patriots keep both picks and take Hill since he has the highest ceiling of any WR in the draft.

32. New York Giants - OT Jonathan Martin (Stanford)...The Giants have a history of taking the best available player on their board...Martin is the type of OT that fits their scheme and fills a need at OT.

Prospects that just missed being taken in the first round:

QB Brandon Weeden (Oklahoma State), WR Rueban Randle (LSU), C Peter Konz (Wisconsin),
OT Mike Adams (Ohio St), DE Andre Branch (Clemson), DT Devon Still (Penn State),
DT Jerel Worthy (Michigan State), DT Kendall Reyes (Connecticut), OLB/DE Courtney Upshaw (Alabama),
SS Harrison Smith (Notre Dame), CB Janoris Jenkins (North Alabama);
