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?

I get a striking suspicion that the Chefs will be picking at #1. Cough... 89-10 ...cough.
Hopefully, they crap the bed and don't take Luck or at least trade out.

Barkley's not entering the draft. Of course he's going to stay for his Senior year, when he'll actually have the chance of winning something at USC

Like the Chiefs picks, as a USC fan would love Barkley on our team though he's a bit overrated.

When you make a 4th round consider giving the Chiefs Jerry Franklin, he seems like the perfect fit for our SILB position.

I am still amazed that you have the Browns selecting two DB's with their first four picks. Dead wrong.

Kelechi Osemele will be a 1st round pick.

I doubt you'll find many Detroit fans who think OT and CB are our biggest areas of need. Think most of us would say OC and OG need to be upgraded the most.
At least OT we have some youth that could pan out (Fox, Hillard). Same thing w/ the CB's. Lots of youngsters that can grow.

ZERo youth and/or depth at the OC and RG spots.

What a joke this site is. An agent I work with said the top two scouting services, whose product is not available to the public, both have Nick Toon as the #1 ranked WR in the draft. The idiots on this site don't even have him in the top three rounds! Well done, schmucks.

Writing as a Cincinnati fan, I see them taking a RB in the first round. Sure they have had a couple of busts in Chris Perry and Kenny Irons, but with their defence being young and improving, their offence is the area that has to improve the most. With the offensive line in good shape for the first time in 5 years, (although they could upgrade the guard position, but this isn't worth a first round pick) and key positions being held by recent high draft picks, Green, Dalton, Gresham. The RB position is the logical choice. Benson could get resigned, but that would only be on a one year basis. If no RB is worthy at their spot on the first day, it has to be a DB. A lot of people have been critical of them letting Jonathon Joseph go, but they recently resigned Leon Hall to a multi year deal. I think the reason for this, is that they prefer their DB's to be more physical. That's why the signing of Nate Clements is good for the next couple of years. The second round pick will be the best available offensive lineman, or a first round talent who dropped down the big board because of character concerns. (Some can work out, look at what Carlos Dunlap did last year).

I would love to see the Redskins take a Cornerback very high in the 2012 draft...We haven't done that since Carlos Rogers, and w/ his departure this offseason, I think we need to add quality depth at the position. We definitely loaded up on offensive skill positions in free agency and the draft this year, so it's time to go get a shutdown corner. How about my man Hosely from VT near the end of round 1... (where we'll hopefully be picking from!) HTTR!

I while i do agree with the Browns getting Quinton Coples there is no chance they go after Worthy. Browns just resigned Athyba Rubin to a three year extension and he led all defensive lineman in tackles last year with 3.5 sacks. i know the sack number isnt high but that is why they will get Coples

The Colts absolutely have to snag one of the QB's if they're drafting in the Top 5. I remember the 90's and I'm not willing to go back to that. I'm a huge Peyton Manning fan, he's an iconic figure for our franchise, but five years from now he'll be gone. With a proper replacement we can do the Farve/ Rodgers/ Montana/ Young transition and come out OK. If we don't snag a QB while he have the chance we'll be Miami and Buffalo. They still haven't recovered from Marino and Kelly retiring. It'll be the 90's all over again.
