2012 NFL Mock Draft: FanSided NFL Weighs In


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.

12 Seattle Seahawks – Melvin Ingram OLB/DE South Carolina

13 Arizona Cardinals – Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame

14 Dallas Cowboys – Dontari Poe DT Memphis

15 Philadelphia Eagles – Michael Brockers DT LSU

16 New York Jets – Andre Branch DE Clemson

17 Cincinnati Bengals – Mark Barron S Alabama

18 San Diego Chargers – Dont’a Hightower ILB Alabama

19 Chicago Bears – Stephon Gilmore CB South Carolina

20 Tennessee Titans – Nick Perry DE USC

21 Cincinnati Bengals – Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama

22 Cleveland Browns – Kendall Wright WR Baylor

23 Detroit Lions – Peter Konz C Wisconsin

24 Pittsburgh Steelers – Cordy Glenn OG Georgia

25 Denver Broncos – Devon Still DT Penn State

26 Houston Texans – Whitney Mercilus DE Illinois

27 New England Patriots – Courtney Upshaw OLB Alabama

28 Green Bay Packers – Shea McClellin OLB Boise State

29 Baltimore Ravens – Jonathan Martin OT Stanford

30 San Francisco 49ers – Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin
