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?

Hey Walter,
Just my opinion, but it's actually going to go round 1 QB round 2 DT (3 tech) for the Hawks.

seattle needs an edge rusher more than they need a cb with that early 2nd rounder. brandon browner so far is pretty good, locked up braylon in week 1.

I get it that it's hard to do mocks without knowing each team's backup situation. That said, there's no way the Vikings go ILB in the 1st round. EJ Henderson is still playing at a high level, and his backup is a 2009 draftee who has played well when called upon. Instead, I'd bet the farm they go o-line first, and specifically, left tackle. There are 4 or 5 high prospects at tht position, and the Vikings were just ranked the worst offensive line in the NFL after week one, something that no Vikings fans are surprised by... I'm calling it now - LT in the 1st, WR in the 2nd.

Okay, the we gave the Bengals that game Walt. We played a sloppy penalty ridden game, had a horrible punter gift wrapping field position, and it took one, once in a lifetime monumental coaching F-Up to beat us.... But sure second pick overall... I mean I am pretty sure things are going to tighten up. Then again the Browns weren't going to make any adjustments or anything...

Floyd to the Bears in round 1, please. And I'd prefer to wait a little longer on a DE, but I could see it in the 2nd if Woot can't play.

Hey Walt! If the 49ers traded a couple of draft picks to move up in the second round in the 2011 NFL Draft to select Colin Kaepernick then why would they give up on him after only one season in which he will likely not play very much. YOU ALWAYS give up on players way too soon.You're very narrow minded with your picks sometimes.You need to think outside your little box.Most players need time to develop.But according to you if they are not pro bowl caliber players instantly then they should be replaced.Thank God you ain't a coach.

Does nobody outside of Cleveland know that the Browns have a pretty damn good DT in Rubin? DT depth is needed absolutely, but not a first rounder.

ಠ_ಠ

If the Vikings don't pick a lineman in the first two rounds, might as well slot them for the first pick in the 2013 draft.

Finally,

Someone smart enough to mock the Lions for an interior Lineman somewhere in the first 2 rounds.
I expect we'll see Tulloch resigned sometime this season giving the Lions 4 solid young(er) LB's to grow together. Tulloch, Durant, Levy, Carpenter.

We still have ZERO options for the future at OG and OC. While Sims (LG) will be around for awhile I can't see Raiola coming back next season and Peterman (RG) may not make it to the end of this season. Some plan for the future has to come soon.

There are too many great wide outs in this class. Blackmon.. Fuller.. Sanu.. Jeffreys.. and Floyd.. There are five 1st round wide outs in my estimation.

i could see denver drafting either a qb or dt in the first two rounds and a rb later

walt denver aloud 190 yards against the raiders they need a new dt and on offense they could be targeting rb and qb

Blackmon had a DUI as well. On the field, I'll take Floyd over Blackmon. At the very least it's close and Floyd is a top 15 pick, easily. I'll gladly place a bet that Floyd is taken in the top 15 in the draft this year.
