6 Round NFL Mock Draft by Tyler Lurkins
2012 NFL Mock Draft all 6 rounds Updated on 04/26/2012: This 2012 NFL Mock Draft is 6 full rounds with pick by pick analysis of each pick in all 6 rounds.
1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB-Stanford
Luck is the new face of a rebuilding franchise. He shows great athleticism to go along with his huge arm and pin point accuracy. Playing in a pro style offense, Luck reads D’s well, can get under center, and start day 1.
2. Washington Redskins Via St. Louis Rams: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
The only way Cleveland gets this pick is to trade both 1st rounders. This trade should boil down to Miami and Washington. For this year at least, Washington will hand the Rams their 1st and 2nd round picks. Griffin provides a major upside. He posseses a cannon for an arm and has extreme mobility .
3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT-USC
Kalil may be one of the better left tackles to come through the draft. He has great size, length, and is flawless in pass protection. To succeed, Ponder will need his blind side protected and Kalil is a major upgrade over Johnson.
4. Cleveland Browns: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
The offensive line is in rebuilding, the QB situation is bleak, and there isn’t a threat at WR. Holmgren will look to put some pop in his offense. Shurmur will run a very basic west coast that will rely on a very talented RB. Richardson is a three down back with power and speed. Richardson simply can’t be passed on at this point.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
With Richardson off the board, the Bucs need to fill their biggest gaps. With a young, aggressive D line, the Bucs need a stop gap in the middle. Kuechly is an excellent prospect with a nose for the ball. Kuechly is an all around player, but excels in stopping the run. This allows the D line to switch and cross at will. This pick also allows the promising Mason to move to SLB. After signing Barber and Wright, Claiborne doesn’t make sense. Use pick #5 on nickel corner? With the ILB market dried up, the Bucs can’t find a better talent than Kuechly, plus this year and next years draft are deep in CB’s.
