2012 NFL Mock Draft: Projected Top 5 Picks(Updated)

2012 NFL Mock Draft: Updated Projected Top 5 Picks for the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 26th in New York City: With the NFL draft less than a week away, and the three-day extravaganza will kick off Thursday night. While there hasn’t been a lot of drama surrounding the top picks leading up the draft, the first round always seems to have plenty surprises. Teams picking near the top are there for a reason, and with several needs to address, there are plenty of different scenarios that could unfold.

2012 NFL Mock Draft – Predictions and Projections for the Top 5 Players to be Drafted

1.      Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, Quarterback, Stanford

The rumors that Luck has already been informed that he will be the top pick aren’t exactly a surprise. His announcement as the No. 1 pick has been several years in the making, and what better way for Indianapolis to replace Peyton Manning than with the best quarterback prospect since Manning. Luck has all the physical tools, and his ability to read defensive coverages and command a pro-style offense is incredible for a player just leaving college. The Colts will make the safe, smart pick.

2.      Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III, Quarterback, Baylor

Washington needs a franchise QB, and it traded a ton of draft picks to move up and get one. There is no way this pick isn’t RGIII, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the front office for the Redskins has already turned in a card with Griffin’s name on it to the commissioner. His big game and scrambling ability make Griffin a dynamic offensive weapon, and his potential is off the charts. He will need to learn how to run a more conventional offense, but the bigger concern will be avoiding big hits and staying healthy. In terms of body type, RGIII is much more of a speedy and elusive runner like Michael Vick than a bulldozer like Cam Newton.

3.      Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, Offensive Tackle, USC

I’d like to think that a team that allowed the most touchdown passes, had the fewest interceptions, and plays in a division with two opposing QBs that topped 4,600 passing yards last year would try to upgrade its secondary, but all indications are that Minnesota is going with Kalil rather than LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne. Granted, I understand wanting to protect QB Christian Ponder with a tackle that should be dominant for the next decade, but it seems like the Vikings are opting for the safest pick instead of addressing their biggest need.

4.      Cleveland Browns: Trent Richardson, Running Back, Alabama

Cleveland’s pick is quickly becoming the most intriguing of the draft. The direction that the Browns decide to go in will likely dictate the rest of the first round. While Ryan Tannehill is a possibility, the more likely scenario for the former Texas A&M QB to get drafted No. 4 would be if Cleveland trades the pick. Justin Blackmon would be an instant upgrade for a horrible receiving corps, but a wide receiver can only have so much of an impact for an offense that lacks a running game and still has questions about its QB.

As a result, Richardson simply makes the most sense. He is an every-down back, and he has the combination of power and explosive speed that teams covet in a running back. More importantly, having a physical running game is a must to compete in an AFC North Division that sent three teams to the playoffs last year. It gets cold and windy in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Cleveland, and Richardson would give the Browns a workhorse back to turn to when the weather gets nasty. The bottom line is that Cleveland needs more weapons on offense, and Richardson is going to touch the ball 25-plus times a game and make an immediate impact.

5.      Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, Cornerback, LSU

Even with Ronde Barber deciding to return, the Buccaneers still need to inject some talent and youth into the secondary. After all, defending the pass is a must when you play in a division with Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Drew Brees. Claiborne is the best cornerback prospect in the draft, and he is the type of player that can be left alone in man-to-man coverage because of his physical nature at the line and tackling ability in the open field. Aside from the Wonderlic test score, Claiborne is the total package and a quick fix for one of Tampa Bay’s biggest needs.

2012 NFL Mock Draft: Projected Top 5 Picks – Luck and RGIII #1 and #2

2012 NFL Mock Draft: Projected Top 5 Picks for the 2012 NFL Draft on Saturday, April 26th in New York City: With the 2012 NCAA tournament officially in the books, talk of March Madness will quickly give way to April’s NFL draft. Mel Kiper and Todd McShay will become the two most popular men in the world of sports, and analysts everywhere will debate which prospects will be busts and which will be future Pro Bowlers. Only three weeks remain before the Indianapolis Colts are on the clock, and with a trade already made for the second pick, the top five is starting to take shape.

SBG Global Sportsbook

2012 NFL Mock Draft – Predictions and Projections for the Top 5 Players to be Drafted

1.      Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, Quarterback, Stanford

Don’t buy into the rumors that Robert Griffin III may be sneaking into the conversation for the top pick. General managers simply don’t pass up a player that has been considered the top pro quarterback prospect for the last three years. Luck has the body, the arm strength, and most importantly, the knowledge of a pro-style offense. He doesn’t make mistakes, especially in the red zone, and he has athleticism outside the pocket in the mold of Aaron Rodgers. Luck is the low risk, high reward pick that every team wants when they have the No. 1 pick. He is a franchise QB in the making, and Indianapolis isn’t going to overthink this. Luck will be the top pick.

2.      Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III, Quarterback, Baylor

Go ahead and pencil in RG3 as a lock to end up in Washington as the No. 2 pick. The Redskins have been searching for a franchise quarterback for more than a decade, and the front office didn’t trade a basket of draft picks to St. Louis to pick anything but a quarterback. The Heisman Trophy winner wowed at Baylor and wowed at the combine and his pro day. He has game-changing speed, and more importantly, he is an accurate passer. Griffin may need a little time to adapt to a more conventional offensive system, but his upside is off the charts. He will follow Luck off the draft board.

3.      Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, Offensive Tackle, USC

Given how porous the Minnesota secondary was last season, an argument can made be for LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne. However, Kalil is all but a lock to become a Viking. After all, the quarterback is the most important player on the field, and the player that keeps him upright isn’t far behind. Kalil has the agility, strength and technique to be a dominant left tackle for the next decade, and he is the unquestioned top player at the position in this year’s draft. He will protect young QB Christian Ponder, open running lanes for Adrian Peterson, and make the Vikings’ offense better overall. Kalil will be the cornerstone of Minnesota’s offensive line for a long time.

4.      Cleveland Browns: Trent Richardson, Running Back, Alabama

Cleveland desperately needs offensive weapons, and with Peyton Hillis no longer part of the backfield, Richardson is a natural replacement. He is a punishing runner that can wear down opponents and take pressure off QB Colt McCoy. Not to mention that pass his catch-passing ability will fit perfectly with the Browns’ dink-and-dump offense. Richardson is by far the top running back prospect on the board, and as well as he performed in the brutal SEC, there is no reason he shouldn’t be able to handle the grind of the NFL.

Other options with this pick include receiver Justin Blackmon or one of the other quarterback prospects. However, picking another QB doesn’t really help with the lack of weapons that has plagued Cleveland’s offense. Blackmon would provide McCoy with an explosive deep threat, but Richardson is going to touch the ball much more than any receiver. It is also worth mentioning that Mike Holmgren calls the shots, and he had plenty of success in Seattle with a workhorse back from Alabama leading his offense. This is the first pick in the draft that isn’t set in stone, but Richardson is the frontrunner to join the Browns.

5.      Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, Cornerback, LSU

While his ridiculously low Wonderlic score raises questions about whether or not he can read multi-syllable words or do simple math, there is no question that Claiborne is a physical, shutdown corner. With Ronde Barber on his last leg and Aqib Talib possibly going to jail or at least being suspended, Tampa Bay needs a cornerback. Claiborne can play man-to-man coverage, he is a reliable tackler, and he can rush the passer. His ability to be both a reliable cover corner and a playmaker will be too much for the Buccaneers to pass up, especially with so many question marks at the position. The fact that former LSU secondary coach Ron Cooper works for Tampa Bay makes Claiborne all the more likely to end up a Buccaneer.

2012 NFL Mock Draft Predictions and Forecast: Projected Top 5 Picks

2012 NFL Mock Draft – Projected Top 5 Picks to be Drafted at the Top of the 2012 NFL Draft: The NFL season and college football season is in the books, so it is time to start turning attention to the draft. After all, the NFL draft has become one of the most anticipated events in American sports. Not surprisingly, predicting the draft has become an equally popular endeavor. Projections will change hundreds of times between now and April as combines are held, information is leaked and general managers tip their hands. However, team need always plays a major role in the draft order, and the regular season already revealed that for most franchises.

SBG Global Sportsbook

2012 NFL Mock Draft – Predictions and Projections for the Top 5 Players to be Drafted

1.      Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, Quarterback, Stanford 

For the biggest no-brainer pick in recent memory, there sure is a lot is a lot of debate about this pick. Of course, most of it involves whether or not to keep Peyton Manning, but whatever decision Indianapolis makes about its current QB, Luck is going to be there future signal caller. He has more than enough arm strength to make all the necessary throws, he is deadly accurate, and he is experienced running a pro-style offense. Luck was flawless in the red zone last season, and he has been changing plays and managing a complex offense since stepping foot at Stanford. He is pretty much the total package for a player at his position, and there is no downside to drafting him. Worst case scenario, he has to watch and learn from one of the greatest QBs in NFL history for a year or two.

2.      St. Louis Rams: Matt Kalil, Offensive Tackle, USC

For the time being, I am going to assume that the draft order stays the same. That being said, this pick is almost certainly going to be traded because there are plenty of teams falling over themselves to draft Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, but with former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford already on the roster, the Rams are not one of those teams. Trading down will allow St. Louis to stockpile picks to build around Bradford, but pretending they stay put, Kalil is the obvious pick. He would instantly become the anchor of the offensive line, helping keep Bradford upright and healthy. Not to mention the fact he could make some holes for the perennial underrated Steven Jackson to run through. The Rams can draft Kalil and pencil in elite platy at the tackle position for the next decade.

3.      Minnesota Vikings: Morris Claiborne, Cornerback, LSU

To call the Minnesota secondary an embarrassment would be kind. The Vikings surrendered more than 250 passing yards per game to opponents, and the numbers only get worse. They allowed an NFL-high 34 touchdown passes and recorded a league-low eight interceptions. In short, they need some serious help. Claiborne is a physical, shutdown corner and is the best player at his position in this year’s draft. Granted, the Vikings have plenty of other needs as well, but their porous secondary is the most glaring. Claiborne is the first step in remedying the issue.

4.      Cleveland Browns: Justin Blackmon, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

With a pair of first-round picks to work with, many experts have pointed to Cleveland as a potential destination for RG3. However, Mike Holmgren is all about building teams through the draft, and keeping both picks allows Cleveland to address more needs. Plus, Colt McCoy wasn’t awful in his first full year as starter, and he had absolutely no help on offense. Blackmon would give him his first legitimate weapon at receiver, and his big play ability would allow the Browns to throw the ball more than seven yards down the field at a time. Blackmon is probably the best prospect at his position since Calvin Johnson, and he will add a much-needed dimension to an offense that managed just 13.6 points per game last season.

5.      Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dre Kirkpatrick, Cornerback, Alabama

Tampa Bay has a lot of needs, but I am betting the Ronde Barber calls it quits this offseason, forcing the team to draft his replacement. The fact that fellow corner Aqib Talib is dealing with potentially serious legal issues makes drafting Barber’s replacement the top priority. Kirkpatrick can do it all from the cornerback position. He can play man-to-man coverage, he is a reliable tackler, and he can rush the passer. His ability to be both a reliable cover corner and a playmaker will be too much for the Buccaneers to pass up, especially with so many question marks at the position.
