The editors of FanSided NFL got together over the last week or so to release our official 2012 NFL Mock draft. This was pretty simple. We just went around the horn with no trades and made our picks.
No frills. No explanations. Just the opinions of team experts from FanSided.
Here we go:
1 Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck QB Stanford
2 Washington Redskins – Robert Griffin III QB Baylor
3 Minnesota Vikings – Matt Kalil OT USC
4 Cleveland Browns – Trent Richardson RB Alabama
5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Morris Claiborne CB LSU
6 St. Louis Rams – Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State
7 Jacksonville Jaguars – Quinton Coples DE North Carolina
8 Miami Dolphins – Ryan Tannehill QB Texas A&M
9 Carolina Panthers – Fletcher Cox DT Mississippi State
10 Buffalo Bills – Luke Kuechly MLB Boston College
11 Kansas City Chiefs – David DeCastro OG Stanford
With no trading allowed and Kueckly and Tannehill already off the board, this wasn’t a tough decision for me.There were other interesting possibilities and some might say 11 is too high to take a guard but this selection is fairly safe and will set the table for what could be a very special offensive line in Kansas City.
