2nd Round Mock Draft

The first round has come and gone and I got just 8 picks (well 9 if you count me giving the Browns Weeden at 37) correct and 25 out of the 32 first rounders correct. However, I will now try again and work to improve that number by doing a 2nd round mock draft.

33. St. Louis (Michael Brockers) – Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech – TheRams missed out on Blackmon but were able to land Brockers. Now they get Bradford a #1 weapon in the borderline 1st round player, Stephen Hill

34. Indianapolis (Andrew Luck) – Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford – The Coltsgot Andrew Luck and now they get him his favorite target from Stanford. This pick matches BPA and need and would give Luck a safety valve.

35. Baltimore (None) – Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama – The Ravenstraded out and picked up an extra 4th rounder and still get there guy. Upshaw gives them a versatile pass rusher to add to Suggs and Ngata.

One Round NFL Mock Draft

We’re a few weeks into free agency, and a few teams have addressed some of the needs they perhaps would have looked to the draft to fill. With that in mind, we’re forced to re-evaluate our mock draft,

1. Indianapolis (2-14) – Team Needs: QB, OG, SS, OC, 2CB, WR, NT, TE, DE, LB, RB - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

The Colts are trying to make the media think this pick won’t be Andrew Luck but they are not doing a good job. They have not even had a private meeting with Robert Griffin sighting “time constraints” as the reason. Luck is everything a team could want in a QB prospect and more. He has the athleticism and size of Cam Newton combined with the throwing ability of Aaron Rodgers. Whether or not he can put it all together and become one of the all time great QBs is all that remains.

2. Washington – from St. Louis (2-14) – QB, WR, LG, ILB, RT, CB, NT, TE, OC, SS, K, Rush LB - Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

The Redskins gave up three 1st round picks and more to move up four spots and they are not taking anyone but Griffin or Luck here. Griffin is a dream fit for Shanahan’s system because of his athleticism, accuracy, and arm strength. Griffin has the speed and athleticism of Michael Vick in his prime but the throwing ability and accuracy of Drew Brees. Even though the Redskins gave up a lot to get Griffin, if he fulfills his potential and becomes a franchise QB, it would be hard to say that it was not worth it.

3. Minnesota (3-13) – LT, CB, WR, S, OG, 2LB, DT, FB, RB3 - Matt Kalil, OT, USC

The Vikings have really two options here at No. 3. They can make the smart move and take Matt Kalil to protectChristian Ponder or they can make the dumb move and take Morris Claiborne. Even though Claiborne is a phenomenal prospect, you simply can’t pass up on a franchise LT when that is your biggest need. While Claiborne might be a better CB than Kalil is a LT, it is not often a team is in a position to get an elite LT prospect. If the Vikings take Claiborne and Kalil becomes a franchise LT, this will be considered one of the worst moves of all time.

Tommy Streeter, a potential steal

Hey guys. Sorry for the lack of posts in the past couple days but I just started a new job and time was tight. A big thanks to Ryan for keeping the site fresh. I have been looking at mock drafts and seeing where Tommy Streeter has been going and I am consistently seeing anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th round. In my opinion, that is totally absurd as he is one of the premiere prospects at the WR position. Streeter has all the measurable’s to be an absolute stud and if a team can land him in the third round, they would be getting a major steal. After he blew up the combine, I thought Streeter might see his stock soar into the late first round but instead he has kind of stayed where he was. I have always had him rated as an early second round pick and I see numerous possible landing spots for him. After the jump see where they are and see my updated WR Rankings.

One Round NFL Mock Draft

Round 1

1. Indianapolis (2-14) – Team Needs: QB, OG, SS, OC, 2CB, WR, NT, TE, DE, LB, RB – Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

The Colts taking Andrew Luck seems like a foregone conclusion. Luck is the consensus number 1 prospect in this draft and has all the tools to be the next star QB in this league. He compares to Cam Newton in terms of athleticism and size and to Drew Brees in terms of accuracy and skill.

2. St. Louis (2-14) – 2OT, 2WR, 2OLB, FS, CB, DT, OC, RB, FB – Matt Kalil, OT, USC

In this mock draft there are no trades so the Rams will have to “settle” for the best OT prospect in a couple years. Kalil is so good that he kept last year’s No. 9 pick to the right side of USC’s offensive line. Kalil is good at everything but has to add some strength to make sure he can stand up to a bull rush.

6 Round NFL Mock Draft

AS you all know, I normally don’t mock trades but this time I am going to. However, it is not going to be for the 2nd pick in the draft because I think the Rams are going to take Matt Kalil. However, I am going to have the Redskins trade up to the #3 spot and give up their 1st, 2nd, and 5th round picks.

Round 1

1.    Indianapolis (2-14) – Team Needs: QB, OG, OC, 2CB, WR, SS, TE, DE, LB, RB – Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

2.    St. Louis (2-14) – 2OT, 2WR, 2OLB, FS, CB, DT, OC, RB, FB – Matt Kalil, OT, USC

3.    Trade – Washington (5-11) – QB, WR, LG, ILB, RT, CB, NT, TE, OC, SS, K, Rush LB – Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

4.    Cleveland (4-12) – QB, WR, RT, DE, CB, OLB, RB, OG, FS, DT, K – Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

5.    Tampa Bay (4-12) – 2CB, 2LB, RT, WR, OC, RB, LG, FB, DT, QB, K – Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

ezsteeler First Mock Draft with trades

Hello everyone, I’ve been invited to be a part of this team and I’m excited to get started. I haven’t done a mock with trades in a while, but with so much movement expected in this year’s draft I thought it would be appropriate. I hope you appreciate it and as always constructive feedback is welcomed. Enjoy!

1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck QB, Stanford

Not much explanation needed here. The Colts will take Luck, no questions asked.

TRADE: Rams trade #2 pick to Redskins for 2012 1st, 2nd, 4th and 2013 1st and 3rd.

2. Washington Redskins (via Rams): Robert Griffin III QB, Baylor

This could be one of the most predictable trades in quite some time. Washington will go after for RG3, and I don’t see another team wiling to outbid them.

3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil OT, USC

The Vikings need to put weapons around Christian Ponder immediately. They would have to seriously consider Blackmon here, but ultimately a franchise LT like Kalil is too valuable. If they can find a #1 receiver they will have a good group in place on offense.

4. Cleveland Browns: Justin Blackmon WR, Oklahoma State

Cleveland is rumored to want RG3 as well, but they are in too good a position to trade out of. Any of the top prospects on offense would fit for them, so they can sit tight and wait for whoever comes. Blackmon would be a great target forColt McCoy (or whoever they have at QB) and would push Greg Little down to #2, which is where he belongs. If Blackmon is gone, they can take Richardson since they will be losing Peyton Hillis in the offseason.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne CB, LSU

Tampa is also in a good position since its unlikely any defensive players will be taken in the top 4 (barring a trade). That means they can take Claiborne who fills their biggest need. Claiborne isn’t as freakishly athletic as Patrick Peterson, but is probably an even better cover corner.

2 Round NFL Mock Draft

Well I have gathered enough information to publish another mock draft. This one is of the two round variety. Anywhere you see a ? next to team needs, that means I still need help with those teams. Once I gather all that information, I can begin expanding the draft to 3 and 4 rounds.

Round 1

1.    Indianapolis (2-14) – Team Needs: QB, OG, OC, 2CB, WR, SS, TE, DE, LB, RB – Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford – This is an absolute no brainer and no explanation is really needed.
2.    St. Louis (2-14) – 2OT, 2WR, 2OLB, FS, CB, DT, OC, RB, FB – Matt Kalil, OT, USC – This pick is basically a no brainer. The Rams will consider Justin Blackmon but a franchise LT is more important and more valuable than a franchise WR.
3.    Minnesota (3-13) – LT, CB, WR, S, OG, 2LB, DT, FB, RB3 – Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State – If Kalil is taken by the Rams, this pick will also be a no brainer. Blackmon is a beast and would give Jake Locker a franchise WR.

4.    Cleveland (4-12) – QB, WR, RT, DE, CB, OLB, RB, OG, FS, DT, K – Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor – Again, another no brainer. If Blackmon is off the board, the Browns will have to take the 2nd best QB in the draft and someone that fits perfectly in Pat Shurmur’s West Coast offense. He has great accuracy, is very mobile, and has great intelligence.

5.    Tampa Bay (4-12) – 2CB, 2LB, RT, WR, OC, RB, LG, FB, DT, QB, K – Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU – Another easy pick. The Bucs biggest need is finding a CB and Claiborne is the best CB in the draft class and could be better in coverage than Patrick Peterson was in coverage.

Mock Draft Version 2.1

Obviously the order is just my speculation. It is the least important part of these mock drafts. Don’t take it personal if your team is picking higher than you would like. The record’s I have are how I think each team will fare in the 2011-2012 season. Also, please note in the title the version number is represented as (rounds.how many mock drafts I have done with that many rounds)


1. Washington Redskins (3-13): Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford: Whoever picks #1 will probably be a quarterback needy team and will take Luck, Barkley, or Jones. Unless Jones or Barkley are spectacular, that team will take Luck.
2. Buffalo Bills (4-12) : Matt Barkley, QB, USC: If the Bills are picking this high again, they have to think about taking a QB. Barkley has huge upside and would possibly move the Bills up from picking in the top 3 to picking 10 to 15.
3. Minnesota Vikings (4-12): Matt Kalil, OT, USC: Kalil is a good but not great tackle prospect but fills a huge need at OT. He needs to do some work but given proper time he could become a stud.
