NFL Power Rankings and 2012 Mock Draft

32. Miami Dolphins (0-4): Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Miami has now lost Chad Henne for who knows how long, so getting a top notch signal caller like Andrew Luck could really change this franchise around. Tony Sparano is likely out after the season.

31. Indianapolis Colts (0-4): Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma

Solid developmental quarterback who will benefit greatly from learning from Peyton Manning.

30. St. Louis Rams (0-4): Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina

Give Sam Bradford an elite level wide receiver prospect to throw to and see if he struggles like he has in 2011.

29. Minnesota Vikings (0-4): Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Vikings need to block for Christian Ponder’s blind side. Kalil is the best OT in the draft.

28. Kansas City Chiefs (1-3): Matt Barkley, QB, USC

Chiefs get a franchise QB of the future in Barkley, who is a fiery kid with a live arm.

27. Seattle Seahawks (1-3): Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

No change here. The Seahawks add the dynamic Griffin to be their quarterback of the future.

26. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3): Quinton Coples, DL, North Carolina

Jags get a versatile defensive lineman to add to a pretty talented young front four.

25. Denver Broncos (1-3): Dre’ Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

Broncos get some much needed help in the secondary with the long, athletic Kirkpatrick.

24. Cleveland Browns (2-2): Vontaze Burfict, LB, Arizona State

Burfict is a stud, and an elite linebacker prospect who plays with a mean streak.

23. Carolina Panthers (1-3): Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

Sure-handed receiver will be a touchdown machine in the NFL, and Cam Newton will love him.

22. Arizona Cardinals (1-3): Jonathan Martin, OL, Stanford

The Cardinals’ offensive line is atrocious, so getting a top notch guy like Martin is essential.

21. Cincinnati Bengals (2-2):  Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Richardson is my favorite RB prospect and can step in and make Pro Bowls right away.

20. Philadelphia Eagles (2-2): Jared Crick, DL, Nebraska

Best player available here, Eagles get a solid defensive lineman in Crick to rush the quarterback.

19. Oakland Raiders (2-2): Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Tough, fast, physical cornerback fits exactly what the Raiders want in a defender.

18. Dallas Cowboys (2-2): Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska

Cowboys get a potential lock-down cornerback in Dennard and a steal at this point of the draft.

17. San Francisco 49ers (3-1): Alameda Ta’amu, DT, Washington

Big nose tackle prospect to fill the middle of San Francisco’s defensive line.

16. Tennessee Titans (3-1): Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Floyd coming in and the return of Kenny Britt gives Jake Locker a lot of weapons offensively.

15. New York Jets (2-2): Dont’a Hightower, LB, Alabama

Hightower is a physical linebacker with great size. Would fit right in to Rex’s defense.

14. Chicago Bears (2-2): Riley Rieff, OT, Iowa

Another Big Ten lineman to help protect Jay Cutler.

13. New York Giants (3-1): Zach Brown, LB, North Carolina

Brown is the best player available, and the Giants usually make the best of those situations.

12. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2): David DeCastro, OL, Stanford

Top flight guard prospect to add to an often depleted offensive line.

11. Washington Redskins (3-1): Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College

Physical linebacker with great instincts and tackling ability. Would complete a huge revamp of Washington’s front seven.

10. Buffalo Bills (3-1): Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State

Excellent pass rusher with great upside at this stage of the draft.

9. Atlanta Falcons (2-2) (Cleveland Browns): Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

Physical corner and a great tackler who would give the Browns a couple of nice young players at that position.

8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1): LaMichael James, RB, Oregon

Speedy running back to complement the power of LeGarrette Blount.

7. San Diego Chargers (3-1): Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame

Tackling machine at linebacker who would fit in with San Diego beautifully.

6. Baltimore Ravens (3-1): Courtney Upshaw, LB, Alabama

Been compared to Ray Lewis. Would be interesting to see them play together for a season or two.

5. Detroit Lions (4-0): Bruce Irvin, Joker, West Virginia

Speedy pass rusher who could play linebacker or defensive end for the Lions.

4. Houston Texans (3-1): Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson

Potential nose tackle prospect to continue the revamp of Houston’s vastly improved defense.

3. New Orleans Saints (3-1) (New England Patriots): Donte Paige-Moss, DE/OLB, North Carolina

Big pass rushing option with a lot of upside this late in the first.

2. New England Patriots (3-1): Billy Winn, DL, Boise State

Versatile defensive lineman who would be a perfect fit with New England.

1. Green Bay Packers (4-0): Josh Chapman, DL, Alabama

Big defensive lineman adds depth to the Packers’ front line.
