The team needs are matched up against a list of 2012 NFL Draft prospect rankings (aka "Big Board") in order to generate each selection in our 2012 NFL Mock Draft.

1 Indianapolis
Andrew Luck
    Stanford
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
235
Alternate Pick #1
Robert Griffin
Alternate Pick #2
Morris Claiborne
Certainly not a surprise, and at least Indy didn't take longer than a few minutes on the clock. So starts, officially, the new era of the Indianapolis Colts.....post Peyton Manning. Now the hard work begins - the team needs a near total overhaul - and Luck may take a beating in his first year or so. (A)
2 Washington
Robert Griffin
    Baylor
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
220
Alternate Pick #1
Matt Kalil
Alternate Pick #2
Morris Claiborne
They paid a hefty price to get him, but the risk-reward potential with RG3 could make the price worth while. One thing's for sure, RG3 will not be out-worked and he has all the intangibles to lead this team back to respectability. Combine an electric offence with a solid defence and the Redskins could be a force for years to come. Grade: B+
3 Cleveland
Trent Richardson
    Alabama
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
224
Alternate Pick #1
Justin Blackmon
Alternate Pick #2
Morris Claiborne
The Browns get their man in a pre-draft blockbuster trade! The Browns send Minnesota the 4th overall pick, and the extra picks in rounds 4 (118), 5 (139) and a round 7 pick. Trent Richardson will make Browns fans proud as he keeps the chains moving, and is a threat to score from anywhere on the field.
GRADE: A
4 Minnesota
Matt Kalil
    USC
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:

Weight:

Alternate Pick #1
Justin Blackmon
Alternate Pick #2
Riley Reiff
Thank you, Rick. The Vikings trade back one spot, pick up three picks and get the player they need and wanted all along, OT Matt Kalil. Though Claiborne also made sense, the investment in Ponder lead to the investment in the OL. It will be VERY interesting to see how the rest of the draft plays out. I wouldn't be surprised if they moved back into the 1st round for WR Stephen Hill. Grade: A+
5 Jacksonville
Justin Blackmon
    Oklahoma State
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
212
Alternate Pick #1
Morris Claiborne
Alternate Pick #2
Michael Floyd
It was widely reported that Owner Shahid Khan highly coveted Blackmon and GM Gene Smith did his owner proud by giving up a mere 4th round pick to jump the Rams and get his man. Hopefully the Jags can build off of this pick and Khan politely takes a step back so Smith can do his job. Love the player and this pick fills a major need. Grade: A
6 Dallas
Morris Claiborne
    LSU
    CB
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
188
Alternate Pick #1
Luke Kuechly
Alternate Pick #2
Courtney Upshaw
The Cowboys entered the offseason with questions in the secondary. They began to refurbish with Brandon Carr in free agency. They were expected to add another player early in the draft, possibly with Alabama SS Mark Barron. But then a deal too good to pass on appeared thanks to the Rams. Morris Claiborne was as shocked as anyone that he's headed to Dallas. And now the Cowboys have an imposing secondary to shut down the Giants and Eagles. Grade: A
7 Tampa Bay
Mark Barron
    Alabama
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
213
Alternate Pick #1
Luke Kuechly
Alternate Pick #2
Riley Reiff
This pick is reminiscent Buffalo's surprise selection of Donte Whitner in the 2006 draft. Mark Barron is a fine player, but probably not who Tampa Bay was hoping to land when they traded down from the #5 pick. They did add a round 4 pick for their efforts, but expecting a starting LB or CB in R4 is a stretch. Neither Richardson, Blackmon, and Claiborne were available. Grade: C
8 Miami
Ryan Tannehill
    Texas A&M
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
220
Alternate Pick #1
Michael Floyd
Alternate Pick #2
Quinton Coples
After all the conjecture and predictions Tannehill is the guy. It's hard to be too excited about the pick off the bat since it's doubtful the former Aggie will see the field much in 2012. However Matt Moore is a free agent following this season and David Garrard is 34. Tannehill needs seasoning but with coaching from Philbin and Sherman the raw QB could finally be the answer to Miami's 12 year QB question. Grade: A



9 Carolina
Luke Kuechly
    Boston College
    SILB
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
242
Alternate Pick #1
Fletcher Cox
Alternate Pick #2
Riley Reiff
Dan Connor took his talents to Dallas, leaving a void in the middle of the Panthers defense. Enter Kuechly, possibly the draft's safest selection. He should step into the MLB role from Day 1. What to do with Beason, who has played MLB in the past? When he retruns from his Achilles injury he'll be at OLB where he played part of the season in 2010. A need filled with a great player? Grade: A
10 Buffalo
Stephon Gilmore
    South Carolina
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
190
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
Michael Floyd
The savvy, hard-hitting Gilmore an excellent pick, one that could trump Aaron Williams' RD2 selection last year. Compared with Williams, Gilmore has more height (he's 6'2" to Williams' generous 6'0"), better speed (4.40 to 4.56), better blitz skills, and similar change of direction (3.94 shuttle to 4.07, and 6.61 to 6.72 3-cone). Williams-Gilmore could rival the Bills' all-time CB tandems. Grade A
11 Kansas City
Dontari Poe
    Memphis
    DT34
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
346
Alternate Pick #1
Dre Kirkpatrick
Alternate Pick #2
Dontari Poe
Pioli goes against his stated philosophy of preferring players with lots of good game tape to take Poe. Poe is a huge freak athlete with great raw skills. This is a classic boom or bust pick. Romeo Crennel must feel he can motivate and coach Poe up. Poe's upside is enormous, however he could be the next Ryan Sims. The Chiefs really rolled the dice here. Grade: D
12 Philadelphia
Fletcher Cox
    Mississippi State
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
298
Alternate Pick #1
Michael Brockers
Alternate Pick #2
Devon Still
The Eagles had a plethora of picks and utilized that surplus to move up a few spots to secure the best 4-3 DT in the draft. Adding Cox's skillset is perfect for the Eagles' "wide 9" defense. He's a tall player (6'4") that relies on his quickness to collapse the pocket. Cox will slide right into a deep rotation which includes Patterson, Jenkins, Dixon and Landri. Not sure how much he'll fix there deficiencies against the run, though. Grade: B
13 Arizona
Michael Floyd
    Notre Dame
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
220
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
Courtney Upshaw
Though not a top need given the presence of one Mr. Larry Darnell Fitzgerald Jr., the selection of Floyd will certainly be a benefit to QB Kevin Kolb. There were many options on the board including OT Reiff and numerous DE options, but the selection of Floyd should help the Cardinals offence move the chains, which they desperately need to do to keep the D fresh. Grade: B
14 St Louis
Michael Brockers
    LSU
    DT43
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
322
Alternate Pick #1
Devon Still
Alternate Pick #2
Riley Reiff
The Rams get massive underclassman Michael Brockers (6'5" 322) from LSU. Brockers has the size and athletic ability to immediately contribute to the thinnest group on the defense. Ultimately, the Rams got a great talent with upside that will contribute immediately and two 1st and two 2nd round picks for their original #2 overall. Grade: A
15 Seattle
Bruce Irvin
    West Virginia
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -86
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Quinton Coples
Alternate Pick #2
Andre Branch
For the 2nd year in a row the Seahawks come out of left field with a reach pick that they probably could have had an entire round later. Expect Irvin to be the heir apparent to Chris Clemons at the LEO position, but for 2012 Irvin will be on the field only for passing downs. Grade: F
16 NY Jets
Quinton Coples
    North Carolina
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
284
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
Courtney Upshaw
A curious pick for the Jets. While Coples has the size to play DE in the teams 3-4, a pass rusher would have made more sense. There were plenty available, such as Melvin Ingram and Courtney Upshaw. Coples would be better off as a DE in an even front. In addition to the decreased scheme efficiency, Coples also has motivational issues. Why not an OLB or an OL upgrade? Grade: C
