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?

As a Giants fan: as much as Reese is a BPA guy, I don't think there's any way our first round pick is anything other than a linebacker, offensive lineman or wide receiver. (This is, of course, barring a catastrophic season which results in everyone getting fired.)

Poor Kellen Moore. If he was 3 inches taller he would be a first round prospect

If Cyrus Gray isn't in the first round I'll be shocked. He has a great power/speed combo and showed it against Texas last year.

While I'm not complaining about it....it's pretty laughable to see the Browns go not only DL on the first two picks in first round but defense through the first three rounds...

Additionally, I can see the Browns getting the first overall pick. Question is, if so, are they trading or keeping Luck?

I have a hard time seeing the Browns go DL on both their first round picks. The just drafted Sheard and Taylor in the 2011 draft, and have other needs like LB, WR and the right side of the OL.

Pats should be set at guard for the future with Mankins and Cannon. They really need a center though.

In case the first 366 thumbs up didn't convince you. Yes, do that deal. From a Colts fan, the question now isn't whether Peyton plays again this year... it's whether he plays next year.

You know nothing about the broncos. If a quality QB is there broncos take him,hands down.
Elway is running the show not fox.

I think the Browns take Floyd from ND with their 2nd 1st round pick.

No way the Browns spend a 1st round pick on an interior d-lineman. The just signed Rubin to a 3 year extension and drafted Taylor in round 1 in 2011. Browns will draft b.p.a. in one of the following positions CB, S, LB, OT, WR. They need to replace Sheldon Brown so I think Minnifield was a good projection. Burfict would replace Jackson at MLB and maybe they could bounce Jackson to WLB.

The 49ers aren't starting Madieu Williams at FS. The only reason he started against Seattle is because of injuries to Dashon Goldson and Reggie Smith. Normally he is our 4th safety on the depth chart. Just FYI.

The Browns just extended ahytuba Rubin's contract for 3 years.. they like him as a DT w/ Phil Taylor. I doubt they go DT in the first round.. I say they go LB with Fujita getting older, and Chris Gocong being just an average player. Right tackle is a possibility, but I doubt they go that high for a tackle.

If the Colts go safety in round 2 I think they'd take Mark Barron because he's a SS. McDonald is a FS and so is Bethea. I'm sure making the switch wouldn't be too difficult but why not take the guy already playing SS?

In the 3rd round I think they'd go Nico Johnson over Sean Spence. Spence is only 5'11" and 224 lbs. That was the prototype LB for the Colts a few years ago when Dungy was still around but since Caldwell took over they've been drafting larger guys at OL, DT and LB. The last few LB's they've taken have been Conner (6'2 240 lbs), Pat Angerer (6'0" 235 lbs), Phillip Wheeler (6'2" 240 lbs) and they've recently signed Nate Triplett (6'3" 247 lbs) so fortunately the days of the tiny LB are gone. So yeah I think they take Nico Johnson at 6'3" 245 lbs instead.
