NFL Mock 2

This is our second NFL Mock. You can read our first one here

1. Indianpolis

Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

No-brainer. Luck is safe. Will be an impact player from Day 1.

2. Washington

Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Took a risk trading up, but Griffin has the talent to make it work.

3. Minnesota

Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Kalil is not a stud, but is the best tackle prospect, and they need to protect Christian Ponder.

4. Cleveland

Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

They need to upgrade their offense, and Richardson is the best offensive player in the draft.

5. Tampa Bay

Morris Clairborne, CB, LSU

Forget his wonderlic; he’s the real deal.

6. St. Louis

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

A much needed weapon for Sam Bradford

7. Jacksonville

Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

A much needed weapon for Blaine Gabbert

8. Miami

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

He shouldn’t be the pick, but they need a franchise QB. He has the tools to be one, eventually.

9. Panthers

Quinton Coples, DE, UNC

They roll the dice, hoping he’s like Julius Peppers

10. Buffalo

Cordy Glenn, OT, Georgia

Glenn is rising up boards, and has a ton of talent.

11. Kansas City

Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

Gives Scott Pioli his Vince Wilfork

12. Seattle

Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

Ingram can be used a lot of different ways, and Pete Carroll is a creative coach.

13. Arizona

Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

They badly need offensive line help, and Reiff is a solid tackle prospect.

14. Dallas

Mark Barron, S, Alabama

He helps to upgrade a secondary that was awful last year.

15. Eagles

Fletcher Cox, DE/DT, Mississippi State

Cox is very versatile, and will give the Iggles a lot of options.

16. Jets

Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama

Jets need pass rush help, and Upshaw, despite some recent criticism, will be a good one.

17. Bengals

David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

The best guard prospect in years will be a welcome sight for the Bengals.

18. Chargers

Nick Perry, DE, USC

They’ll count on him to improve the pass rush.

19. Bears

Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

Putting him opposite Brandon Marshall will give Jay Cutler plenty of targets to work with.

20. Titans

Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

Konz will make the Titans line one of the best.

21. Bengals

Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

Will finally replace Jonathan Joseph

22. Browns

Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State

They need to upgrade the QB spot, and after missing out on Griffin, Weeden is the fall back option.

23. Lions

Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Someone has to protect Matthew Stafford

24. Steelers

Luke Keuchly, LB, Boston College

They’ll love him as a run stopping force.

25. Broncos

Devon Still, DT, Penn State

Will help Von Miller out a lot.

26. Texans

Dre Kirpatrick, CB, Alabama

Teaming him with Joseph would be a great tandem

27. Patriots

Whitney Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois

Gives them a lot of versatility for their pass rush.

28. Green Bay

Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

Another weapon for Aaron Rodgers? Why not

29. Baltimore

Dont’a Hightower, ILB, Alabama

They take Ray Lewis’ replacement

30. 49ers

Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

They take a chance on the raw Hill, hoping he can help stretch the D

31. Patriots

Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

Can play all over the line, has a ton of talent.

32. Giants

Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin

A physical lineman to upgrade one of the worst units last year.

    GM Reese is a becoming a mastermind in free agency and the NFL draft. He is very shrewd to fill need positions with young talented guys like CB Molden, LB Rivers and a veteran OT Locklear and letting go of aged guys who skills and speed deteriorated. So right now, this is what he has done that is most notable not counting signings of some project players:

    TE: signed Bennett (great size, stronger blocker)
    LB: traded 5th rounder for Rivers (1st rounder, 9th overall pick)
    CB: signed Molden (good size and was a 3rd rounder draft pick)
    Safety: signed Horton

    More details can be found at
    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/13598/giants-free-agency-tracker

    So the only leftover gaps are drafting good prospects to strengthen RB/OL/TE/WR/DL/Secondary. I believe our OL needs the most repair since they were very inconsistent at pass protecting Eli and blocking well for our RBs.

    My dream Giants draft would be the following 7 picks:

    Round 1 – OT Bobby Massie
    Round 2 – WR Mohamed Sanu
    Round 3 – RB Chris Polk
    Round 4 (two picks) – OG Brandon Brooks and TE Michael Egnew
    Round 5 – None (trade away) –
    Round 6 – OG Lucas Nix
    Round 7 – CB Omar Bolden (small gamble) or LB Vontaze Burfict (big gamble)

    Other plays I think Giants might look into selecting but it all depends if they are still available and considered the “BPA” on their draft board:

    WR Stephen Hill – Round 1/2
    CB Janoris Jenkins – Round 1/2
    RB Doug Martin – Round 2
    RB David Wilson – Round 2
    OG Kelechi Osemele – Round 2/3
    OG Kevin Zeitler OG – Round 2/3

    I would be delighted to see if some of these other guys end in Giants blue jerseys.

    Jeremy – can you published this mock draft or pass it on to GM Reese :)))))))

    • GMEEEEN says:

      very happy with fleener or green but wouldn’t be taking both. hill then green would be great but then I’m thinking green is a reach in the second?

  3. ReneNYG1 says:

    My Draft
    1-Martin RB
    2-Ladarius Green TE
    3-Chris Chainey KR supreme
    4-Ryan Broyles TE-Blocker supreme
    4-Ryan Bryles WR
    6-Phillip Blake-C
    7-?
    Other RB if Martin is gone-Polk,or Turbin
    Maybe Massie in second

  4. ReneNYG1 says:

    George Bryan TE is my 4th

  5. DaveWilk says:

    I can’t see the Texans taking a CB so early in the draft b/c they have so many other holes to fill after free agency. How about Coby Fleener? He would fill a need (replacing Joel Dressen) and be another great receiving weapon for Matt Schaub.

  6. DaveWilk says:

    Wow, your mock is all over the place! I like the fact that it’s unpredictable, though; after you’ve seen hundreds of mocks, it’s nice to see one with some imagination!
    That being said, I really hope the Texans nab Coby Fleener at #26, even if Kirkpatrick is available. Blasphemy, I know, but getting the best TE in the draft would be great, as it’s overall a weak TE class and they would be filling a need (having to replace Joel Dreessen). Kubiak is all about trying to create mismatches in his offense, and Fleener would be ideal: LBs are too slow to cover him and safeties are too small.
    You have Cordy Glenn going to Buffalo at #10, and I just can’t see it. Bills need a LT, and there are serious doubts that Glenn can play tackle at all, let alone LT. I think they’re better off taking a different position at #10, and then trying to fill the LT spot at the top of Round 2, maybe with Bobby Massie.
    I appreciate your input and the fact that you’ve done a great mock. Keep up the good work!
