2012 NFL Mock Draft Updated on 04/26/2012

1.       Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB-Stanford

#1 rated QB on my NFL Draft Big Board

Analysis: Andrew Luck is the “safest” pick in the last two decades. Some analysts are even thinking of him as a Hall of Famer! With Peyton Manning and probably most of the veterans gone, Luck will become the face of the Colts’ “Youth Movement.”.

2.     Washington Redskins*: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

#2 rated QB on my NFL Draft Big Board

Analysis: Robert Griffin III and the Redskins are a match made in heaven. Griffin has the mobility and deep throw accuracy to flourish under Mike Shanahan’s bootleg offense. There will only be two concerns going forward: will he live up to the hype, or did the Skins pay too much?.

3.      Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Analysis: Even with the rumors of selecting Mo Claiborne or trading down, I believe that the Vikes will select Matt Kalil to protect Christian Ponder. Their offensive line is pretty bad right now, plus Kalil will provide the Vikes with a Franchise Left Tackle for the next 10-12 years.

4.      Cleveland Brownas: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Analysis: Trent Richardson is the safest pick behind Andrew Luck. Let me repeat that. Trent Richardson is the safest pick behind Andrew Luck. He is a complete back, and the best running back prospect since Adrian Peterson. If Cleveland doesn’t pick him if he’s available at 4, I will be shocked.

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

Analysis: With Ronde Barber aging and Aqib Talib having off-the-field issues, the Buccaneers desperately need secondary help. Claiborne is a lockdown corner and will be the cornerstone of this defense for years to come.
