D the Producers 99.9% correct mock draft



Just when you thought the last mock was turned in, D the Producer wanted to submit his version before the teacher gives out grades.  Here is how D's draft stacked up:

1. Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck QB, Stanford

Has this pick ever been in question?  If you thought Indy was going to take RG3 you must have been on some pretty snazzy LSD.  Luck is and always has been the best QB in the draft.


2. Washington Redskins – Robert Griffin III QB, Baylor

RG3, he's dynamomite! RG3 won't sleep at night......after he goes 0-5 in his first 5 starts!  I don't see Griffin III going any lower than #2 just because the Redskins need a QB so bad.  I am not as excited about RG3 as all of the experts are simply because he isn't an established pocket passer like a Luck, or Tannehill.


3. Minnesota Vikings –Matt Kalil LT, USC

The o-line is the cornerstone of any good team.  Patriots; good o-line, Giants; good o-line, Ravens; good o-line etc etc.  The Vikings may have one of the worst o-lines in the league and what better way to start rebuilding than to draft an instant impact player like Kalil.


4. Cleveland Browns – Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

Arguably the most athletically gifted player in the draft, Claiborne is a beast and cannot be passed up.  When you are a team like the Browns and you need to fill so many holes on your roster, you take the best player available over the flashy pick in Richardson.


5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Trent Richardson, RB, Bama

Bucs need to get back to the days of Warrick Dunn and Mike Alstott.  Right now the Bucs are basically running back by committee with Earnest Graham and Cadillac Williams.  Both guys are an injury waiting to happen and are at the later part of the their careers.   Bucs will draft powerful runner Richardson here.


6. St. Louis Rams – Justin Blackmon, WR, OK ST

With Bradford at the helm, the Rams need some legit target for him to throw too.   "They have Brandon Lloyd," you may say.  My answer to that is, he isn't a number one wide receiver.  Sure he had one breakout year in Denver, but that was a fluke.  Blackmon will have a productive NFL career and Bradford/Blackmon could end up being a Manning/Wayne type  combo.


7. Jacksonville Jaguars – Quinton Coples DE, UNC

Best D-lineman in the draft, the Jags need most help on defense and what better than to build around a talented defensive end.  IE- Mario Williams with Houston.


8. Miami Dolphins – Ryan Tannehill QB, Texas A&M

The Dolphins can't buy a QB, literally.  Matt Moore is not the answer in Miami but between him and Tannehill, the Dolphins will at least have some options.


9. Carolina Panthers – Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi St.

Now with Cam Newton, the Panthers actually have a potent offence. Ever since they lost Peppers however, they have been pathetic on defense.  Look for the Panthers to revamp their D and by drafting  Cox, they may fill one of the missing cogs they need.


10. Buffalo Bills – Mark Barron, S, Bama

Barron has shot up the draft boards over the past few weeks and would fill an instant need the Bills want at the safety spot.  This is a no brainer pick.

The Rest of the First Round:


11. Kansas City Chiefs - Luke Kuechly, ILB, BC

12. Seattle Seahawks - Michael Floyd, WR, ND

13. Arizona Cardinals - Riley Reiff OT, Iowa

14. Dallas Cowboys –  Shea McClellin, MLB, Boise State

15. Philadelphia Eagles – Chandler Jones, DE, Cuse

16. New York Jets – David Decastro, OG, Stanford

17. Cincinnati Bengals – Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

18. San Diego Chargers – Dontari Poe, DL, Memphis

19. Chicago Bears – Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

20. Tennessee Titans - Dre Kirkpatrick CB, Bama

21. Cincinnati Bengals - Dont'a Hightower, LB, Bama

22. Cleveland Browns –  Courtney Upshaw OLB, Bama

23. Detroit Lions - Alfonzo Dennard CB, Nebraska

24. Pittsburgh Steelers – Harrison Smith, FS, Notre Dame

25. Denver Broncos -  Kendall Reyes DT, UConn

26. Houston Texans – Cordy Glenn OT, Georgia

27. New England Patriots – Jonathan Martin OT, Stanford

28. Green Bay Packers – Stephen Hill WR, Georgia Tech

29. Baltimore Ravens – Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

30. San Francisco 49ers – Mike Adams OT, Ohio State

31. New England Patriots – Jerel Worthy DT, Michigan State

32. New York Giants – Devon Still DT, Penn State

  1. If the Browns don't add offensive playmakers this draft is a complete failure.
