Updated 2012 NFL Mock Draft: Where Does RG3 Land?

Clemson DT Brandon Thompson is a good fit for the Denver Broncos

For scouting reports of all of these players (and many more) check out our scouting report page

1. Indianapolis Colts (0-13): Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Obviously the Colts go with a QB here, but I lose confidence by the day that it will be Andrew Luck for some reason.

**Projected Trade with Minnesota**
2. Miami Dolphins (4-9): Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Dolphins get arguably the best player in the draft in RG3 who would revive the franchise.

**Projected Trade with St. Louis**
3. Kansas City Chiefs (5-8): Matt Barkley, QB, USC

Kansas City gets a franchise QB of the future for their new regime.

4. Washington Redskins (4-9): Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Richardson would be a very interesting fit with the Redskins and head coach Mike Shanahan.

5. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9): Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

Blackmon would provide Blaine Gabbert or whatever QB the Jaguars use with a big time playmaker at the receiver position.

6. Carolina Panthers (4-9): Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Panthers get a top notch defender in Morris Claiborne who can also return kicks and punts.

7. Minnesota Vikings (2-11): Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

Vikings get some much-needed help on the offensive line with Riley Reiff.

8. Cleveland Browns (4-9): Zach Brown, LB, North Carolina

Fast athletic linebacker prospect who adds another dimension to the Browns’ defense.

9. Tampa Bay Bucs (4-9): Dre’ Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

Big cornerback prospect who has a ton of potential as a shut-down cornerback.

10. Philadelphia Eagles (5-8): Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Eagles need to get tougher on the offensive line, and Martin is one of the best in the country.


11. Buffalo Bills (5-8): Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis

Poe is an athletic freak with huge upside. I think the Bills adding him along with Marcel Dareus could be dangerous.

12. St. Louis Rams (2-10): Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Floyd is a sure-handed WR prospect who would help the desperate St. Louis Rams and QB Sam Bradford.

13. Seattle Seahawks (5-7): Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Bit of a reach here, but Tannehill is a solid prospect who will likely have a great offseason.

14. Arizona Cardinals (6-7): David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

The Cardinals just need to add more protection up front, and getting  DeCastro would be huge at this point.

15. San Diego Chargers (6-7): Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama

The Chargers continue to try to rectify their pass rush problems with the addition of the talented Upshaw.

16. Dallas Cowboys (7-6): Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

The Cowboys need a center in a bad way. Peter Konz is the best in the country.

17. Tennessee Titans (7-6): Quinton Coples, DL, North Carolina

The Titans end the fall of Quinton Coples and get themselves a nice DL prospect who can play multiple positions.

18. Cincinnati Bengals (7-6): Lamar Miller, RB, Miami

Miller would add another dimension to the improving and young Bengals offense.

19. Oakland Raiders (7-6)(traded to Cincinnati): Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

The Bengals are not afraid to take character risks, and they are missing the presence of Jonathan Joseph in the defensive backfield.

20. Chicago Bears (7-6): Devon Still, DT, Penn State

The Bears’ defense is aging, and they could really use some help at defensive tackle. Still is one of the top DT’s available in this year’s draft.

21. New York Giants (7-6): Dont’a Hightower, LB, Alabama

Big, athletic linebacker who would likely start immediately in the middle of the Giants’ defense.

22. Atlanta Falcons (8-5)(traded to Cleveland): Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina

Jeffery would be great value here for the Browns, who continue to seek out playmakers at the WR position.

23. New York Jets (8-5): Alamada Ta’amu, NT, Washington

Jets get a big, nasty nose tackle to clog up lanes in the middle of that defense.

24. Denver Broncos (8-5): Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson

Complete DT prospect who has great size and could be a force for the Broncos in the middle of the line.

25. Detroit Lions (8-5): Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College

Great value pick here and gives the Lions a tackling machine who can lead the defense.

26. Houston Texans (10-3): Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers

Big playmaker at wide receiver who would add insurance if Andre Johnson continues to miss time due to injuries.

27. New Orleans Saints (10-3)(traded to New England): Mark Barron, S, Alabama

Patriots upgrade the safety position with the All-American Barron from Alabama.

28. New England Patriots (10-3): Jared Crick, DL, Nebraska

Tough defensive lineman coming off of injury who can provide pass rush as a 5-technique.

29. San Francisco 49ers (10-3): Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska

Solid, physical corner with a good build who could step in and start right away on one of the best defenses in the NFL.

30. Baltimore Ravens (10-3): Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

Physical running back who would complement Ray Rice as Ricky Williams likely won’t play much longer at a high level.

31. Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3): Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia

Big, nasty offensive lineman who fits in perfectly with what Pittsburgh likes to do.

32. Green Bay Packers (13-0): Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State

Decent value pick here, adds some much needed talent and depth to the front line for Green Bay.
