NFL 2012 Live Mock Draft Round 1 (Picks 17-32)
2012 Live Continuous Updated Mock Draft
April 26-28, 2012




   - Checkmarked picks represent Drafttek correct prognostications


17 Cincinnati
Dre Kirkpatrick
    Alabama
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
186
Alternate Pick #1
David DeCastro
Alternate Pick #2
Cordy Glenn
With David DeCastro still on the clock the Cincinnati Bengals go with Dre kirkpatrick so that they can inject some youth into a DB squad that is currently full of old timers! Dre is in a position to learn from some of the best in the business without the strain of producing right away! Also, if Mays faulters a the safety position Kirkpatrick can step in and play deep for Cincy's D! Grade: B-
18 San Diego
Melvin Ingram
    South Carolina
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'1
Weight:
264
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
David DeCastro
Well, I can't say we expected Ingram to be on the board here at 18, but the Chargers nailed this pick, fortifying their pass rush. John Pagano will have carte blanche to create matchup problems across his defence with the stable that the Chargers have accumulated at OLB. Grade: A
19 Chicago
Shea McClellin
    Boise State
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -15
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
260
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
Devon Still
Athletic end with superb motor. Effective pass rusher that will line up outside in the Bears' 4-3 scheme. Not a big surprise that McClellin is a coveted defensive prospect, but probably a bit surprising he went this soon.
20 Tennessee
Kendall Wright
    Baylor
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
196
Alternate Pick #1
Devon Still
Alternate Pick #2
David DeCastro
The Titans make a surprising pick here, adding a great perimeter WR and "YAC Master" in Kendall Wright. With few options at the biggest positions of need, they likely grabbed the best player available on their board. Time will tell whether they made the right call, but the depth chart today looks extremely deep at WR. Grade: B
21 New England
Chandler Jones
    Syracuse
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     -35
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
266
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
Whitney Mercilus
The Patriots needed to find a pass rusher after losing Andre Carter, Mark Anderson and Shaun Ellis this offseason. They didn't waste any time... and traded away a 3rd round pick to move up and get their guy: Syracuse's Chandler Jones, who was rising up boards this past week. He's a prototypical 4-3 DE, coming in at 6'5". He's got a nice stable of pass rush moves but his best quality is his motor; he is a nonstop, high effort player. He'll fit in New England perfectly. Grade: A
22 Cleveland
Brandon Weeden
    Oklahoma State
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
216
Alternate Pick #1
Riley Reiff
Alternate Pick #2
David DeCastro
Behind that outstanding OK State O-line, Weeden put up some nice numbers. Weeden can make all the throws expected of an NFL QB. This pick will be controversial in Cleveland, and the McCoy vs. Weeden debate will begin now. The dynamics of the Browns draft has changed, and the selection of a RT and WRs becomes critical. Grade: C
23 Detroit
Riley Reiff
    Iowa
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +13
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
300
Alternate Pick #1
Jonathan Martin
Alternate Pick #2
David DeCastro
The 2nd overall LOT, and #1 ROT on the Drafttek Big Board, slips into the waiting arms of the Detroit Lions, who can use the the rookie out of Iowa for easing out Gosder Cherilus. Probably not a LOT starter at present, he could slide over to the left once Jeff Backus hangs' em up.
24 Pittsburgh
David DeCastro
    Stanford
    OG
    Reach/Value:     +11
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
316
Alternate Pick #1
Dont'a Hightower
Alternate Pick #2
Courtney Upshaw
The Steelers needed OL help and got it in a big way, getting our 13th rated prospect at 24. The best OG to come out in years, DeCastro will play next to Pouncey immediately. The Steelers had a chance at Dont'a Hightower, who was often the pick here, but few saw DeCastro available this late in the game. One of the best picks so far. Grade: A



25 New England
Dont'a Hightower
    Alabama
    SILB
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Devon Still
Alternate Pick #2
Stephen Hill
I'd like this pick more if the Patriots were moving back to a 3-4. Hightower is a beastly ILB, coming in at 6'4", 245 lbs. He's a run stuffer but is a liability in coverage and will probably be replaced on passing downs. He'll fight with Brandon Spikes for the MLB role. Defensive upgrades are always welcomed but I question whether he fits their 4-3... unless they're going to favor the 3-4 once more in 2012? Grade: B-
26 Houston
Whitney Mercilus
    Illinois
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +10
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
262
Alternate Pick #1
Stephen Hill
Alternate Pick #2
Jonathan Martin
Uncle Wade has his way and takes the 1-year wonder who put up massive statistics for the Fightin' Illini. The Wade Phillips 3-4 is based on pressure and penetration; as a result, after losing Mario Williams to the Bills, you can never have enough pass-rushers! Value Grade = A, Need Grade = B+ . . . aw hell, let's give 'em an A!
27 Cincinnati
Kevin Zeitler
    Wisconsin
    OG
    Reach/Value:     -18
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
314
Alternate Pick #1
Cordy Glenn
Alternate Pick #2
Stephen Hill
Im confused on this one? We trade back for a third round pick and lose the opportunity to get the best G in the draft and then turn around and grab maybe the 3rd or fourth best G.... Zeitler is a solid G, and maybe they know something that I don't, but I definitely had Glenn, Silatolu, and Konz rated ahead of Zeitler. Hope they make me look dumb with this pick! Grade: C-
28 Green Bay
Nick Perry
    USC
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -9
Height:
6'3
Weight:
271
Alternate Pick #1
Courtney Upshaw
Alternate Pick #2
Andre Branch
While Ted Thompson denies this was a "need" choice, we all know the truth. With several good choices available, the Packers take the best pass rusher still on the board to fill their most glaring weakness. With Kevin Greene coaching him up, he and fellow USC Alum Clay Matthews should make a dynamic pair of OLB bookends. Grade: A Highlight Video - Al Bracco - Jersey Al's AllGreenBayPackers.com
29 Minnesota
Harrison Smith
    Notre Dame
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -13
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
213
Alternate Pick #1
Devon Still
Alternate Pick #2
Stephen Hill
Why? This honestly makes no sense to me. What was the risk that he wouldn't be there at 35? Low. I called the trade back into the first, but I thought it would be for explosive WR Stephen Hill. This pick fills a big hole, but I just don't see the need to trade back into the first for him. Reminds me of the trade up for Tyrell Johnson. Grade: C
30 San Francisco
A.J. Jenkins
    Illinois
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -57
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
187
Alternate Pick #1
Cordy Glenn
Alternate Pick #2
David Wilson
This seems like a surprising pick, but on a team with few holes this year, they can afford to take their man. I would have thought a pass rusher like Upshaw would have made a lot of sense, but I guess the 9ers want to give Alex Smith another outlet in the passing game. This feels like an incomplete grade until Jenkins' NFL performance can be evaluated. But for now... Grade: B-
31 Tampa Bay
Doug Martin
    Boise State
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     -27
Height:
5'9"
Weight:
210
Alternate Pick #1
Mychal Kendricks
Alternate Pick #2
Zach Brown
The Bucs jump ahead of the Giants to get access to Doug Martin. Certainly RB is a need pick and we've had him mocked to the Bucs (usually in R3) in past CMD's. Martin will stabilize the Bucs RB corps, likely to assume the #1 responsibility from fumble prone LaGarrette Blount. But the Bucs still have significant holes at LB and CB to address. Grade: B
32 NY Giants
David Wilson
    Virginia Tech
    RBF
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
200
Alternate Pick #1
Jonathan Martin
Alternate Pick #2
Cordy Glenn
The former Hokie should be a cinch to step in and see action on the field as the rotational back with Bradshaw. His stunning 4.35 40 yard run at the Indy Combine certainly didn't hurt his cause, but Wilson provides the Giants with not only speed but the ability to be a receiving back and give the Giants solid depth and rotation in the backfield. (B)
