NFL Mock 1

We are in the heat of draft season, and we here at the Gab couldn’t be happier. We love draft time; that’s why we’re committed to bringing you the best possible Giants-related draft content on the web. But the draft isn’t just about the Giants. It’s about every team looking to get better. So we’re going to do our first of a few NFL mocks. ¬†You ready? Let’s do this?

1. Colts

Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

He’s the pick, and all signs point to him being a star. He might struggle early on, because the Colts don’t have too many weapons. But he has the skill set to succeed.

2. Redskins

Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

They traded a lot to go up to this spot and take RG3. He has all the tools to be successful. If he’s not, the Skins will be paying for years.

3. Vikins

Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Someone has to protect Christian Ponder and Kalil is the best one out there. Brother of Panthers C Ryan Kalil. Needs to bulk up a bit.

4. Browns

Morris Clairborne, CB, LSU

They wanted Griffin, but didn’t pull the trigger. Might trade down, look for Ryan Tannehill. If not, take the best defensive player in Clairborne, and have two stud corners with him and Joe Haden.

5. Bucs

Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Richardson is supposed to be the best running back prospect since Adrian Peterson. And he might. It’s awfully high for a running back. If he’s that good, it’s worth it.

6. Rams

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

Rams trade down and take the guy they probably were going to take all along. Blackmon is NFL ready and gives Bradford a legit number one receiver.

7. Jaguars

Riley Rieff, OT, Iowa

Someone has to protect Blaine Gabbert, because he does not stand tough in the pocket.

8. Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

This shouldn’t be the pick, but they might have no other choice. The need a franchise QB and Tannehill has the tools to be one; but not right away. Expect some growing pains.

9. Panthers

Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Cam Newton is a star and he did it with an aging Steve Smith. Floyd brings a ton of talent at wideout and gives Newton another weapon.

10. Bills

Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Probably a bit high, but they need to protect Fitzpatrick, and Martin is the best available tackle.

11. Chiefs

Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

The Chiefs hope he can turn into Haloti Ngata to anchor their 3-4. But he looks a lot better in shorts than he does in pads. Boom or bust.

12. Seahawks

Quinton Coples, DE, UNC

Coples is the best defensive end, but gives marginal effort. Pete Carroll is known as a motivator and could get a lot of Coples, who would add to an already good line.

13. Cardinals

David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

Their line is awful. DeCastro reminds a lot of people of Steve Hutchinson.

14. Cowboys

Melvin Ingran, DE/OLB, South Carolina

Ingram can line up all over and will give Rob Ryan a lot of versatility.

15. Eagles

Luke Keuchly, LB, Boston College

Their linebackers were absolutely awful last season, and Keuchly can play from day one.

16. Jets

Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama

The Jets need to get after the QB and Upshaw can be used in a lot of different ways for Rex Ryan.

17. Bengals

Dre Kirpatrick, CB, Alabama

The Bengals never really replaced Jonathan Joseph, and Kirpatrick has the size and speed to be a star.

18. Chargers

Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia

Glenn can play tackle and guard, and I think he’ll play left tackle for the Chargers.

19. Bears

Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

I know the Bears traded for Brandon Marshall, but there still isn’t much behind him. Taking Wright opens things up for Marshall.

20. Titans

Nick Perry, DE, USC

Derrick Morgan didn’t pan out, so they look to Perry, who is really explosive off the snap.

21. Bengals

Mark Barron, S, Alabama

Teaming Barron with his Alabama teammate Kirpatrick remakes and improves the secondary in one night for the Bengals.

22. Browns

Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois

Fans will hate this pick, but teaming Mercilus with Jabaal Sheard provides the Browns with a potent pass rush duo.

23.Lions

Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

They need secondary help; Gilmore leapfrogs Janoris Jenkins, who is falling due to character concerns.

24. Steelers

Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Alabama

The Steelers will be jumping for joy. Hightower has Steelers written all over him.

25. Broncos

Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State

They have Peyton, and they will need to add more weapons. But Cox is the best player available, and immediately upgrades an interior line that is lacking. Helps Von Miller too.

26. Houston

Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

Hill blew up the combine. Can he play? Not sure, but Houston needs guys across from Andre Johnson and Georgia Tech has produced big time wideouts who are athletically gifted and played in that run oriented offense.

27. Patriots

Michael Brockers, DE/DT, LSU

The red shirt sophomore fills a huge need and Belichick can get the most out of him.

28. Packers

Devon Still, DT, Penn State

Need a guy next to BJ Raji, and Still has loads of talent.

29. Ravens

Peter Konz, C/G, Wisconsin

Replaces Ben Grubbs now, replaces Matt Birk later

30. San Fransico

Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

Jim Harbaugh takes his old tight end and gives whoever is at QB another weapon. Defense, o-line and run game are set. Just need more weapons.

31. Patriots

Andre Branch, DE/OLB, Clemson

They probably trade this pick, but if they don’t, Branch gives them needed pass rush and can play standing up or with his hand in the ground.

32. Giants

Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

They need a right tackle and Adams could be the best one from this class.
