New Todd Mcshay Mock Draft First Two Rounds

Recommended Posts

1. Indianapolis Colts

Record: 2-14 | Top needs: QB, WR, 3-4 NT, TE, 3-4 DE

Andrew Luck*, QB, Stanford

An outstanding pro day workout, which confirmed Luck's ability to make all the throws and quieted questions about his arm strength, has cemented his status as the top overall prospect and the best choice for the Colts as they begin the post-Peyton Manning era.

2. Washington Redskins (from STL)

Record: 5-11 | Top needs: QB, ILB, ROT, RB, S, CB

Robert Griffin III*, QB, Baylor

Griffin also had a strong pro day, and his athleticism and intangibles make him a perfect fit for the offense of coach Mike Shanahan. The Redskins have been searching for answers at quarterback for years, and they have found them in Griffin.

3. Minnesota Vikings

Record: 3-13 | Top needs: OT, WR, CB, S, MLB, DT

Matt Kalil*, OT, USC

The most complete tackle I have evaluated in my time scouting prospects, Kalil has the athleticism to excel as a pass-blocker and the mean streak to be a force in the running game.

4. Cleveland Browns

Record: 4-12 | Top needs: RB, WR, ROT, QB, OLB, DE

Justin Blackmon*, WR, Oklahoma State

With the top two quarterbacks on the board already gone, Blackmon's size, hands and physical style offer the Browns a playmaker who can help current QB Colt McCoy.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Record: 4-12 | Top needs: CB, RB, SS, OLB, OG, TE

Trent Richardson*, RB, Alabama

This is a tough call because you could make an argument for taking LSU CB Morris Claiborne here and grabbing one of the second-tier running backs with the 36th pick. Richardson is a special prospect, though, and he could be just what QB Josh Freeman and the Bucs need to jump-start an offense that finished 30th in the league in rushing last season.

6. St. Louis Rams (from WAS)

Record: 2-14 | Top needs: WR, OT, DT, CB, RB, LB

Morris Claiborne*, CB, LSU

The Rams desperately need playmakers for young QB Sam Bradford, but there are plenty of wideouts to be had down the line, and Claiborne is one of the four best players in the draft and plays a high-value position.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars

Record: 5-11 | Top needs: WR, DE, ROT, CB, C, RB

Riley Reiff*, OT, Iowa

Reiff is a safe, high-character pick who fits the draft style of Jags general manager Gene Smith. He will solidify the offensive line and provide protection for second-year QB Blaine Gabbert as he continues to develop. North Carolina DE Quinton Coples is the most talented player on the board at this point, but he's the kind of high-upside prospect who doesn't fit Smith's style.

8. Miami Dolphins

Record: 6-10 | Top needs: QB, DE, WR, ROT, S, TE

Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Tannehill is still somewhat raw as a quarterback -- just 19 starts after beginning his career as a wide receiver -- but his athleticism and upside are impressive. He also makes better decisions than some give him credit for and he didn't get much help in his senior year, when he was coached by new Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.

9. Carolina Panthers

Record: 6-10 | Top needs: DT, WR, CB, OLB, OT, DE

Dontari Poe*, DT, Memphis

Poe blew up the NFL combine with his combination of size (6-foot-3½, 346 pounds), athleticism and speed. He is exactly the kind of dominating interior presence the Panthers need.

10. Buffalo Bills

Record: 6-10 | Top needs: OT, WR, QB, CB, TE, OLB

Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

Floyd is a bit of a reach here, but no more so than OTs Mike Adams and Jonathan Martin. It's a tough call on the Bills' top two needs in this scenario, and they could look to trade down in a situation like this. They could also pull the trigger on a value pick such as Coples.

11. Kansas City Chiefs

Record: 7-9 | Top needs: 3-4 NT, LG, ILB, S, 3-4 DE, 3-4 OLB

Luke Kuechly*, ILB, Boston College

With Poe off the board, Kuechly addresses another big hole on defense and would team with Derrick Johnson to give the Chiefs range and playmaking ability inside. Kuechly has elite instincts and intelligence, and he proved at the combine that he is more athletic than many thought.

12. Seattle Seahawks

Record: 7-9 | Top needs: DE, LB, TE, WR, G/ROT, RB

Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

A great value at a position of primary need. Coples is a versatile prospect with solid measurables, good pass-rush ability and the ability to hold up against the run.

13. Arizona Cardinals

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: ROT, WR, 3-4 DE, QB, 3-4 OLB, DB

Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina

The Cardinals have bigger needs at offensive tackle and wide receiver, but coach Ken Whisenhunt learned the value of playmaking linebackers during his days in Pittsburgh. Ingram is strong and explosive and shows a knack for making big plays, and he would give Arizona needed depth along the front seven.

14. Dallas Cowboys

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: 3-4 DL, G, CB, RB, 3-4 OLB, TE

Fletcher Cox*, DT, Mississippi State

Stanford G David DeCastro and Alabama S Mark Barron are possibilities here, but I like what Cox could bring to Rob Ryan's defense. He has the versatility to play anywhere along the defensive line and can provide pass-rush production from the inside.

15. Philadelphia Eagles

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: WLB, SLB, SS, OT (depth), DL, QB

Mark Barron, S, Alabama

The Eagles began addressing their linebacker need by trading for DeMeco Ryans, so Barron makes sense in the back end. He is the most complete safety in the draft, offering a physical presence in run support and the range to play the point in coverage.

16. New York Jets

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: OLB, WR, ROT, 3-4 DE, TE, ILB

Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama

Upshaw is the kind of physical, versatile front-seven player Rex Ryan loaded up on in his days with the Ravens, showing explosiveness and power as a pass-rusher and as a run defender. Floyd also would be a consideration here if he were available, and he would be a good complement to Santonio Holmes.

17. Cincinnati Bengals (from OAK)

Record: 9-7 | Top needs: CB, G, WR, SS, DL, RB

David DeCastro*, G, Stanford

DeCastro is the No. 12 overall prospect on our board but falls a bit because of positional value. He would be a great addition for the Bengals in front of young QB Andy Dalton.

18. San Diego Chargers

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: ROT, 3-4 NT, G, 3-4 DE, S, RB/TE/WR depth

Cordy Glenn, OT/G, Georgia

The Chargers have addressed many needs in free agency, but Jeromey Clary is clearly not the answer at right tackle. Glenn is a massive (6-5¾, 345), powerful prospect who would boost the running game and help keep QB Philip Rivers clean in the pocket.

19. Chicago Bears

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: LOT, TE, G, DE, DT, CB

Jonathan Martin*, OT, Stanford

Martin needs to add some strength, but he could pair with 2011 first-round OT Gabe Carimi to give offensive coordinator Mike Tice a pair of bookends to coach up. Tice's scheme will help keep QB Jay Cutler upright, but the Bears desperately need a left tackle

20. Tennessee Titans

Record: 9-7 | Top needs: S, CB, TE, DE, G/C, LB

Dre Kirkpatrick*, CB, Alabama

Adding Kamerion Wimbley addressed the Titans' pass-rush need, so Kirkpatrick will fill a void at corner. He has the size, toughness and instincts to fit nicely in Tennessee's zone-heavy scheme. North Alabama's Janoris Jenkins is a better cover corner but will drop because of character baggage, but rising South Carolina CB Stephon Gilmore also could be a consideration here.

21. Cincinnati Bengals

Record: 9-7 | Top needs: CB, G, WR, SS, DL, RB

Stephon Gilmore*, CB, South Carolina

Gilmore is rising fast thanks to a combination of size (6-0½, 190), quick feet and ball skills, and even the Bengals likely will pass on Jenkins in favor of Gilmore.

22. Cleveland Browns (from ATL)

Record: 4-12 | Top needs: RB, WR, ROT, QB, OLB, DE

Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

Adams is a little risky because of his lack of consistency and killer instinct, but he has the size (6-7¼, 323), agility and long arms that teams look for in left tackles. The Browns have a need at tackle, and Adams has plenty of upside.

23. Detroit Lions

Record: 10-6 | Top needs: CB, LOT/G, DE, LB (depth), C, RB

Whitney Mercilus*, DE, Illinois

The Lions put the franchise tag on DE Cliff Avril, and Kyle Vanden Bosch will be 34 this season, so now is the time to add an edge rusher to make sure their defensive line will remain a devastating force for years to come. Mercilus has quickness and a knack for big plays, but he is still developing and this would be a good situation for him.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers

Record: 12-4 | Top needs: G/ROT, 3-4 NT, ILB, RB, DB depth, OT depth

Dont'a Hightower*, ILB, Alabama

Hightower has nailed the pre-draft process and is solidly in the first round, and, with his ability to control the interior against the run, he's a perfect fit for Pittsburgh's 3-4 system. There are few 263-pounders who run like Hightower.

25. Denver Broncos

Record: 8-8 | Top needs: DT, CB, G/C, RB, WR, QB

Michael Brockers*, DT, LSU

The interior defensive line is clearly the Broncos' biggest need, and Brockers could prove to be a steal at this point. He has a big (6-5, 323), well-proportioned frame and better mobility than his production indicates, and, with some coaching and time in the weight room, Brockers could become a force.

26. Houston Texans

Record: 10-6 | Top needs: WR, ROT, ILB, G, CB, 3-2 OLB

Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

The Texans need another playmaker opposite WR Andre Johnson, and Wright fits the bill. He proved his speed in his pro day workout, and Wright is a dynamic runner after the catch who also can contribute in the return game if needed.

27. New England Patriots (from N.O.)

Record: 12-4 | Top needs: DE, DT, DB, C, SLB, WR

Chandler Jones*, DE, Syracuse

Jones is one of the most underrated prospects in the entire 2012 class and just the kind of versatile defender Bill Belichick likes. Jones is long and athletic and can play end in an odd or even front, maybe even some outside linebacker in 3-4 looks.

28. Green Bay Packers

Record: 15-1 | Top needs: 3-4 OLB, S, QB, TE, 3-4 DL

Andre Branch, DE, Clemson

Packers OLB Clay Matthews clearly needs pass-rush help, and Branch can provide that with his motor and ability to get after the quarterback. He has the athleticism to move to outside linebacker in Green Bay's 3-4 defense, where he also can hold up well against the run.

29. Baltimore Ravens

Record: 12-4 | Top needs: G, OLB, LOT, DE, ILB, RB

Harrison Smith, S, Notre Dame

With no offensive linemen worth drafting, fast-rising Smith is a good value pick who could provide long-term security at safety with the clock ticking on Ed Reed. The Ravens also could consider a defensive tackle such as Connecticut's Kendall Reyes at this spot.

30. San Francisco 49ers

Record: 13-3 | Top needs: G, 3-4 DE, WR, RB, CB, OLB

Stephen Hill*, WR, Georgia Tech

Hill is as raw as they come for a prospect from a BCS conference, but his size (6-4, 215) and big-play ability (29.3-yard average on 28 receptions) make him hard to ignore, especially after he turned in one of the most impressive combine workouts I've seen from a receiver.

31. New England Patriots

Record: 13-3 | Top needs: DE, DT, DB, C, SLB, WR

Kendall Reyes, DT, Connecticut

Reyes is a versatile talent who hasn't yet played to his potential, but he is a smart player who could thrive in this scheme and with this organization.

32. New York Giants

Record: 9-7 | Top needs: OT, RB, LB, DT, DE, S

Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska

The Giants might have bigger needs, but David is a great value and a perfect fit. He is one of the best pure football players in the entire draft, someone who could be plugged in on the weak side and allow Michael Boley to move to the middle.

Most huddles won't like this Mock.

I highly doubt Jenkins falls that far.

I am concerned about Poe's lack of production in a weak conference.

Coples is a safer pick imo...

Coples is the best pass rusher in the draft, but there is nothing safe about him.

Still amazed at how many "experts" say our second need is WR.

In their defense, our starting wide receiver is old, our #2 from last year is probably gone and no one else on our roster has ever had more than 600 yards or 3 touchdowns. We view it with blue tinted glasses and are excited about Gettis and Lafell, but they just see a bunch of question marks and marginal talent.

He produced in college and has freakish measurables.

Dude played almost every position on UNC's dline and was successful.

Way safer than Poe.

I agree. WR isn't as big of a need this year as experts are saying. If Lafell and/or Gettis don't step up production in a big way this year, it will be a huge need next off season.
