Last update: Thursday, April 26, 2012, 3:30 p.m. Changes in all 7 rounds.
Next updates: Final (barring major trade in next couple of hours).
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

The order of this 2012 NFL Mock Draft is based on the real 2012 NFL Draft Order.

  1. St. Louis Rams: Danny Coale, WR/P, Virginia Tech
    Let's kick off Round 6 with a punter. How exciting. The Rams need one after losing Donnie Jones to the Texans in free agency. Danny Coale can play receiver too.


  2. Philadelphia Eagles: Edwin Baker, RB, Michigan State
    The Ronnie Brown experiment was an epic failure, so the Eagles may want to add a running back to the mix.

  3. Washington Redskins: Nate Potter, G/OT, Boise State
    Kory Lichtensteiger played well in 2011, but tore his ACL and MCL. There's no guarantee he'll be anywhere close to 100 percent this year.

  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Taylor Thompson, TE, SMU
    Kellen Winslow won't be around much longer, so the Buccaneers should find competition for Luke Stocker.

  5. Minnesota Vikings: Tauren Poole, RB, Tennessee
    Adrian Peterson's 2012 status is in doubt, so the Vikings may spend a Day 3 pick on a running back.

  6. Jacksonville Jaguars: B.J. Coleman, QB, UT-Chattanooga
    Here's some insurance just in case Blaine Gabbert is a total bust. Jacksonville can't go into the 2012 campaign with Gabbert and Chad Henne as its only viable options at quarterback.

  7. Arizona Cardinals: Ryan Davis, DE/OLB, Bethune-Cookman
    The Cardinals need to think about finding some competition at rush linebacker across from Sam Acho.

  8. Buffalo Bills: Matt McCants, OT, UAB
    The Bills have been talking about spending multiple picks on tackles.



  9. New Orleans Saints: Rishaw Johnson, G, California-PA
    The Saints don't really have any depth in the interior of their offensive line. A late-round pick could change that.

  10. Carolina Panthers: Mike Harris, CB, Florida State
    There are many reasons why the Panthers ranked dead last versus aerial attacks in terms of YPA (8.4). One of which is the cornerback position; they don't have anything across from Chris Gamble.

  11. Seattle Seahawks: Tony Bergstrom, OT/G, Utah
    Seattle's offensive line was ravaged by injuries this season, so the team will be looking for a utility lineman who can play multiple positions. Tony Bergstrom could do that, and he might be able to take over as a starting guard eventually.

    Pick change; previously Demario Davis, OLB

  12. Kansas City Chiefs: Aaron Henry, S, Wisconsin
    Romeo Crennel likes using three-safety formations at times, so the Chiefs may want to spend a mid- or late-round pick on the position, especially considering that both Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis are coming off injuries.

  13. San Diego Chargers: Asa Jackson, CB, Cal Poly-SLO
    The Chargers currently have only four corners on the roster, so they could use two selections on that position.

    Pick change; previously Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, NT

  14. Chicago Bears: Deangelo Peterson, TE, LSU
    Another weapon for Jay Cutler. Mike Martz is gone, so the Bears will probably start using talented tight ends - that is, of course, unless they hire another crazed lunatic as their offensive coordinator.

  15. Arizona Cardinals: Joe Looney, G, Wake Forest
    It wouldn't be surprising if the Cardinals spend two selections on offensive linemen this April, given the state of their dreadful front.

  16. Dallas Cowboys: Ronald Leary, G, Memphis
    The Cowboys had major issues on the interior of their offensive line last year. They signed two guards this offseason, Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau, but the latter is just a backup.

  17. New York Jets: Davin Meggett, RB, Maryland
    The Jets traded for Tim Tebow, so they're going to emphasize "Ground and Pound" more than ever.

    Pick change; previously Dan Herron, RB

  18. Denver Broncos: Junior Hemingway, WR, Michigan
    You know you really need help at receiver when two of your top four receivers are Andre Caldwell and Matt Willis.

  19. Oakland Raiders: Terrance Ganaway, RB, Baylor
    The Raiders need a power complement for Darren McFadden in the wake of Michael Bush's signing with Chicago.

    Pick change; previously Alex Hoffman-Ellis, OLB

  20. Tennessee Titans: Christian Thompson, S, South Carolina State
    The Titans are pretty thin at safety, so they could use a selection on the position late in the 2012 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Ernest Owusu, DE



  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M
    The Bengals are really thin at receiver, so they could easily spend multiple picks on the position.

  22. Atlanta Falcons: Kourtnei Brown, DE, Clemson
    John Abraham will be 34 soon, while Ray Edwards was disappointing in his first year as a Falcon. Help at defensive end is needed.

  23. Pittsburgh Steelers: Lucas Nix, G, Pittsburgh
    Chris Kemoeatu was benched twice this past season. He was a cap casualty because he was due $3.5 million in 2012. The guard position is a big need for the Steelers.

  24. Philadelphia Eagles: Jordan Bernstine, S, Iowa
    The Eagles definitely need to add some competition to the safety position.

  25. Houston Texans: Bradie Ewing, FB, Wisconsin
    Our first fullback is off the board! Bradie Ewing can compete with James Casey to be the lead-blocker in the wake of Lawrence Vickers' release.

  26. Miami Dolphins: Levy Adcock, OT, Oklahoma State
    Marc Colombo stinks. He can't block anyone. Of the nine sacks the Dolphins surrendered against the Eagles, Colombo was responsible for three of them.

  27. Green Bay Packers: Chris Anzevino, C, Kent State
    Jeff Saturday was a great addition to the roster, but there's no telling how long he'll last.



  28. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Hardin, S, Oregon State
    The Ravens need someone to eventually take over for Bernard Pollard, who can be a liability in coverage.

  29. San Francisco 49ers: Miles Burris, DE/OLB, San Diego State
    You can never have enough pass-rushers. The 49ers like Miles Burris as a late-round prospect.

  30. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Lindsey, DE, Pittsburgh
    Andy Reid wants to bring in another pass-rusher. Brandon Lindsey is a good scheme fit.

  31. New York Giants: Devon Wylie, WR, Fresno State
    The Giants lost Mario Manningham this offseason, so they may look into drafting a receiver in the middle rounds if the value is right.

  32. New York Jets: David Molk, C, Michigan
    The Jets looked lost when Nick Mangold was out this past season, so they should acquire a quality backup.

  33. New York Jets: Tahir Whitehead, DE/OLB, Temple
    The Jets could stand to add a second pass-rusher in the 2012 NFL Draft.

  34. Cleveland Browns: Ryan Miller, G, Colorado
    Here's some competition for Jason Pinkston, who struggled at left guard last year.

  35. Cleveland Browns: Audie Cole, ILB, N.C. State
    The Browns may use a late pick on some insurance behind D'Qwell Jackson.

  36. Indianapolis Colts: Robert Blanton, CB, Notre Dame
    The Colts couldn't stop anyone last year. It was embarrassing. They were stricken with awful corner play, which is something that really needs to be addressed.

  37. Carolina Panthers: James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
    The Panthers love using multi-tight end sets. They haven't re-signed Jeremy Shockey this offseason, so why not obtain another Hurricane tight end as a replacement?

Very slim chance the Titans would take a MLB in the 1st round. Rookie Colin McCarthy from Miami has been VERY impressive. It's more likely the Titans draft a safety to replace Chris Hope or an interior offensive lineman to challenge/replace Eugene Amano or Leroy Harris.

I would be sure if janorius j is still avaiable when the Panthers select in 2nd and they passed up on him. For one you would get great value for a top 15 prospect.

Why are people getting worked up about the draft order in September? Ummm, this will change. At least this site updates the mock regularly - especially as the season wears on. Most draft sites update no more than once every 2 months or so.

This draft scenario would be a nightmare for Carolina, but I appreciate you having them draft 12th. That probably means good coaching by Ron Rivera and Cam is progressing. In this mock though, they lose out on the 2 blue chip WR prospects and the top CB prospect is taken right in front of them. I know they need DT depth, but reaching for the Clemson DT at 12 is absurd. If they for reach DT, it will be in the 2nd. Suprised you didn't mock CB M.Claiborne to them considering you had him at 7 in the last mock. The 2nd rd pick is almost as bad. WR Childs goes before them & WR Broyles right after while they reach, again, for a Safety. Godfrey just signed a 5 year extension, Martin is decent & the club is high on Pugh. All are young, learning a new system and getting better. CB, OG, & WR are bigger needs. Love the site & have been a fan for years, but I expect better next time out of you Walt, at least with the Panthers picks'.

Matt Roth as a DE is working pretty well so far. He already has two sacks. Jacksonville's defense is rated 5th too. Get your facts straight Jag-hater.

Ughh, the Ravens better not waste a pick on Chris Polk, who is garbage. Especially not with Montee Ball still on the board. I doubt he lasts into the fourth though Walt. Montee Ball will be a day two guy.

@Joe I agree. They'd be better off using that pick to replace Tony Pashos.

It makes no sense for the browns to draft a DT in the 1st round.

Walt, Niners at 6th ovr? BEFORE the Jags, and the Fins?
You should watch the Niners by yourself instead believing what your new Draft Scout tells you about them.

Brandon T = huge reach at 12. No dt in the 2012 draft class is worth a top 15 pick. The panthers drafting another dt would be silly, RR are high on them plus Ron e will be back from injury. Lb is a need since Thomas d career is likely over, Dan C will be a free agent after this year. Cb is a need, captain m is at best a nickel corner.

Chiefs drafted a Center in Round 2 last year that is going to be really good when Wiegman is done (Rodney Hudson). Also, Seahawks are going to be better when they play at home... Chiefs will have #1 pick overall.

they drafted Marcus Gilchrist to be the heir apparent to Jammer. No need to pick another one.

If you don't think Brian Quick will be a third round pick you should quit watching football.

There are two things in this first-round mock that are about as close to certainties as things come: The Seattle Seahawks will pick No. 1 overall, and they'll scoop up Stanford's Andrew Luck.
