Mmmmm, the NFL Draft! So Close, yet so far away! Source: Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

Speaking of speculation, it’s about time to get to the 2012 mock drafts.  What can the Jaguars do with their 7th overall pick?  It’s been speculated on by B&T writers Zoltan Paksa and Adam McGill, but we’ve yet to post every 32 selections of the first round and how it’s all going to go down.  In light of other sites, such as Walter Football doing their own mock drafts, I’ve put a premature one together for your enjoyment.

I’m not saying I’m right (it’s before free agency after all), but take a peek, some of them may as well be called a lock.

Let’s get to the picks!

 

1. Indianapolis Colts
.Andrew Luck,
.QB – Stanford

2. St. Louis Rams
.Justin Blackmon
.WR – Oklahoma State

3. Minnesota Vikings
.Morris Claiborne
.CB – LSU

4. Cleveland Browns
.Trent Richardson
.RB – Alabama

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
.Dre Kirkpatrick
.CB – Alabama

6. Washington Redskins
.Luke Kuechly
.ILB – Boston College

7. Jacksonville Jaguars
.Quinton Coples
.DE – North Carolina

  • The Jags finally gain a top flight defensive end in the draft with Coples.  While his game will be solid, it may not make him exemplary in his first year with the Jags, look for him to develop quickly and learn the game inside and out.  Coples is an investment, but he will pay off with time.

8. Carolina Panthers
.Alshon Jeffery
.WR – South Carolina

9. Miami Dolphins
.Robert Griffin III
.QB – Baylor

10. Buffalo Bills
.Matt Kalil
.OT – USC

    I’d like to say three things here.

    1) I passionately dislike the Coples pick. I’ve read from several sources that he has motivation issues and I don’t want a player like that being a Jaguar. I don’t know why but I get a Albert Haynseworth vibe from him.

    2) If RGIII falls that far, Gene should be in a prime situation to trade back. Teams such as the Chiefs at 11, the Seahawks at 12 and the Browns at 22 could be teams that could trade up to get him. The Browns being the best option because they’d have to give up the most to trade up and we’d still be in position to get a good player at 22 and add more picks to either add depth or be used to move around later in the draft. It’d also make sense because if they were to pick Richardson at #4, trading up to get RGIII would be similar to what the Bengals did with Green and Dalton last year. Different scenarios but comparable all the same.

    3) If Matt Kalil fell that far and we didn’t pick him, I’d be shocked. While it would go against my suggestion made in number 2 above, if I had to choose between getting the best tackle prospect in the draft or trade back, I’d take the tackle.

    Honestly, I don’t see RGIII or Kalil falling that far but you never know, anything could happen.

    @KeenanJ It’s a long way to the draft, thankfully. I also contemplated the same things you did when making the mock, but it just felt right. Yeah, that’s no real reason for something, but hey it’s a mock after all. Look for updated versions from me and the other writers as we get closer to the draft. Especially after free agency.

    I look forward to it. I especially would like to see the ones after free agency, the combine and all the pro days have taken place. I think that’s usually the best time to come up with the most realistic mock drafts.
