2012 NFL Mock Re-Draft: Round 4

Last update: Saturday, April 28, 2012.
This is a 2012 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 4 and 5 for Saturday's NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don't expect to get many of these right, but it's still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. St. Louis Rams: Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa
    The Rams have to be looking at a second receiver early in Day 3.

    Missing Include

  2. San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Washington, G/OT, Miami
    The 49ers need some offensive line help in the wake of losing Adam Snyder to the Cardinals.

  3. Baltimore Ravens: Bobby Massie, OT, Ole Miss
    How is Bobby Massie still on the board? The Ravens are smart, so maybe they'll pick him as a successor for Bryant McKinnie.

  4. Houston Texans: Orson Charles, TE, Georgia
    The Texans lost Joel Dresseen. Tight end isn't a big need, but they may spend a mid-round pick on some competition for Garrett Graham.

  5. Cleveland Browns: Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
    The Browns, amazingly, still haven't drafted a receiver yet.

  6. Denver Broncos: Brandon Boykin, CB, Georgia
    Will the Broncos draft a player who can help them win now? They need a cornerback despite the Tracy Porter signing.

  7. Washington Redskins: Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
    Robert Turbin is a great fit for Mike Shanahan's offense. Shanahan loves using mid-round picks on running backs.

  8. Miami Dolphins: Juron Criner, WR, Arizona
    What are the Dolphins going to do at the receiver position without Brandon Marshall?

  9. Carolina Panthers: George Iloka, S, Boise State
    The Panthers could use some competition at the safety position.

  10. Buffalo Bills: James Brown, OT, Troy
    Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey discussed bringing in multiple tackles in the 2012 NFL Draft.

  11. Seattle Seahawks: Chris Polk, RB, Washington
    If the Vikings can use a second-round pick on Toby Gerhart with Adrian Peterson on the roster, then Seattle sure as hell can draft a runner here even though Marshawn Lynch has been re-signed. Lynch's running style makes him vulnerable to injury, so the Seahawks need depth at the position.

  12. Kansas City Chiefs: Ryan Steed, CB, Furman
    Even when the Chiefs signed Stanford Routt, they reportedly were trying to retain Brandon Carr. They could spend a mid-round pick on a cornerback for depth/future purposes.

  13. Denver Broncos: Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington
    It shouldn't be a surprise if the Broncos spend another selection on a defensive tackle.

  14. Washington Redskins: Keith Tandy, CB, West Virginia
    Depending on where they plan on using newly signed Cedric Griffin, the Redskins will need depth at either cornerback or safety.

  15. San Diego Chargers: Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M
    The only running backs on San Diego's current roster are Ryan Mathews, Curtis Brinkley and fullback LeRon McClain. Mathews hasn't been able to stay healthy, so the Chargers will look into spending a mid-round selection on some insurance.

  16. Chicago Bears: Keenan Robinson, OLB, Texas
    The Bears have a couple of aging linebackers who need successors. Keenan Robinson projects as a great fit into Lovie Smith's defense.

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

  18. Dallas Cowboys: Ronnell Lewis, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    Anthony Spencer has been franchised, but that won't keep the Cowboys from spending a mid-round selection on a rush linebacker. Spencer has severe consistency issues.

  19. Seattle Seahawks: Zebrie Sanders, OT, Florida State
    It's hard to tell if the Seahawks will draft logically or not. If they do, they may want to find some help on the offensive line.

  20. Tennessee Titans: Tim Fugger, DE, Vanderbilt
    The Titans really need defensive end depth, as they barely have anything behind Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan.

  21. Cincinnati Bengals: Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
    Will the Bengals finally address the running back position?

  22. Detroit Lions: Josh Norman, CB, Coastal Carolina
    Another cornerback. The Lions need two, but they can just stick with their "best player available" strategy to validate this selection.

  23. Minnesota Vikings: Nigel Bradham, LB, Florida State
    The Vikings have to address the inside linebacker position because E.J. Henderson is gone.

  24. Pittsburgh Steelers: Hebron Fangupo, NT, BYU
    Casey Hampton tore his ACL in January, so the Steelers may think about bringing in a new nose tackle.

  25. Cleveland Browns: Keshawn Martin, WR, Michigan State
    The Browns missed out on a receiver in the first round, so they could double up on the position early on Day 3.

  26. Houston Texans: Brandon Mosley, OT, Auburn
    The Texans want a right tackle to compete with Rashad Butler. They need to replace Eric Winston.

  27. New Orleans Saints: Ladarius Green, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
    Drew Brees can always use another potent intermediate target to throw to.

  28. Philadelphia Eagles: Omar Bolden, CB, Arizona State
    The Eagles haven't drafted a cornerback yet to compensate for the Asante Samuel trade.

  29. Buffalo Bills: Tank Carder, LB, TCU
    The Bills need one more linebacker to join Nick Barnett and Kelvin Sheppard in their 4-3 scheme.

  30. San Francisco 49ers: Billy Winn, DE/DT, Boise State
    The 49ers may think about finding Justin Smith's possible successor in the middle rounds.

  31. Houston Texans: Ron Brooks, CB, LSU
    The Texans have yet to obtain a defensive back despite the fact that both the Jaguars and Titans drafted a receiver in Round 1.

  32. New York Giants: Antonio Allen, S, South Carolina
    Antrel Rolle will be due $7 million in 2013, so the Giants may look for alternative solutions.

  33. Minnesota Vikings: Shaun Prater, CB, Iowa
    More secondary help for the Vikings, who really need to concentrate on upgrading this area.

  34. Oakland Raiders: Josh Chapman, NT, Alabama
    The Raiders want a larger defensive tackle. Josh Chapman would go a lot higher than this if it weren't for injury concerns.

  35. Baltimore Ravens: Jared Crick, DE/DT, Nebraska
    The Ravens are pretty thin on the defensive line because Cory Redding recently signed with the Colts.

  36. New York Giants: Andrew Datko, OT, Florida State
    The Giants need to find a tackle to play behind the injury-prone William Beatty and the unproven James Brewer.

  37. Green Bay Packers: Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State
    The Packers will be losing Matt Flynn this offseason, so they'll have to find a new backup for Aaron Rodgers.

  38. Green Bay Packers: Tom Compton, OT, South Dakota
    Green Bay needs to think about acquiring tackle depth because Derek Sherrod's leg injury is putting his 2012 season in jeopardy. Chad Clifton was also released.

  39. Minnesota Vikings: Rishard Matthews, WR, Nevada
    The Vikings may spend two fairly early Day 3 selections on receivers considering the lack of talent they have at the position. Jerome Simpson is no lock to stay out of trouble.

  40. Dallas Cowboys: Philip Blake, C, Baylor
    Phil Costa and Kevin Kowalski aren't starting-caliber centers in the NFL. An upgrade is needed here.
