    Looks like RG III and Luck just got off the NFL Play 60 school bus

  2. ia517 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:28 PM

    Love seeing the Chargers/barron trade up pick, hopefully it happens!

  3. mimitaroo says: Apr 26, 2012 6:29 PM

    Kuechly to 17? No

  4. chazsunderland says: Apr 26, 2012 6:29 PM

    Go Jags!

  5. slammincamnewton says: Apr 26, 2012 6:29 PM

    lol @ coples falling to 22.

  6. doresb21 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:30 PM

    no Jonathan Martin, no Fleener ? ha, worst mock draft yet

  7. bearsrulepackdrool says: Apr 26, 2012 6:30 PM

    Just stop. You’re not going to get any closer.

  8. bchapman2011 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:30 PM

    A mock draft that does not have Tannehill going at 8 to Miami? Didnt you right multiple articles stating Stephen Ross’ man cruch on the QB?

  9. pnut87 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:31 PM

    How does Hightower get picked over Keuchley?

  10. bob2585 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:31 PM

    just plain awful

  11. pnthrz1 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:31 PM

    I think Gilmore @ 5 is too high, even for the Bucs Front Office. Like the Panther pick but I hope they trade down.

  12. bradentonbuc says: Apr 26, 2012 6:32 PM

    Drinking a bit early today?

  13. sch00ns says: Apr 26, 2012 6:32 PM

    I would love nothing more then to see the Chargers trade for Mark Barron!!

  14. mdc21787 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:33 PM

    a little late for mock drafts at this point dont ya think?

  15. jolink653 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:33 PM

    yeaa again coples is not dropping anywhere near the 32nd pick and there’s no way the bucs take gilmore with the 5 pick that’s way too much of a reach and i don’t think the rams pass on blackmon because they need a good target for bradford…other than that though the mock looks pretty good

  16. drybass says: Apr 26, 2012 6:33 PM

    Got 2 right.

  17. gator2006 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:34 PM

    Have the Jets tweeted their pick yet?

  18. baldy55 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:34 PM

    I would have no issue with the Jets taking DeCastro. Got to get the pass rusher in the 2nd round.

  19. jharmon64 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:34 PM

    Hard to see Floyd dropping to 18.

    Hope the Steelers don’t take Poe.

  20. diamonds2323 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:34 PM

    I don’t believe that both the texans and the giants would pass on Fleener.

  21. desmondbishoptutu says: Apr 26, 2012 6:35 PM

    Peter Konz, Center. Not guard.

  22. silverhornet says: Apr 26, 2012 6:35 PM

    Seattle is taking Tannehill? LMAO!

  23. Chip Caray's Eyebrows says: Apr 26, 2012 6:35 PM

    Hope you’re wrong about the Bears taking Mercilus. He will not pan out. Book it.

  24. 6ringofsteel says: Apr 26, 2012 6:35 PM

    Coples is not going to fall that far.

  25. pfpjschulz says: Apr 26, 2012 6:35 PM

    Wow what a terrible mock draft. just saying

  26. seatownballers says: Apr 26, 2012 6:36 PM

    In a little bit none of these mocks will matter any more. One surprise team will draft up and this all will change

  27. gmen4life33 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:36 PM

    Richardson and Wright for the Browns? Too good to be true. But man, if that happens, im sure Browns fans will be happy. And Colt might have some talent to win some games

  28. hbdbrowns33 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:36 PM

    why would the ‘Hawks take Tannehill when they just signed Matt Flynn?

  29. badkarma56 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:36 PM

    With the Number one pick in the 2012 NFL draft the Colts trade the number one pick to the Denver Bronco’s for QB Peyton Manning!

  30. ninernation49 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:36 PM

    Seriously Bruce Irvin for the Niners at 30? I think not! How bout Fleener if everything happened the way you projected, but my feeling is Kirkpatrick falls to the Niners and he is there man!

  31. ninernation49 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:37 PM

    *their

  32. clozer76 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:37 PM

  34. allforfunnplay says: Apr 26, 2012 6:39 PM

    Bruce Irvin to the Niners????

    Irvin sucks as a run around the tackle with no pass rush moves undersized defensive end. At best he was rated as 3rd round talent and I wouldn’t pick him. Everette Brown and Quinton Groves all over again.

  35. ih8olives says: Apr 26, 2012 6:39 PM

    Giants taking Coples at 32?? You guys should stick to something your good at… Isn’t there any breaking news coming across the wire about someone getting booed when they were shown on the jumbo-tron at a sporting event?

  36. sdills83 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:40 PM

    Was sure hoping the bengals pulled decastro…our o-line needs help. Its nice to not have any die hard, glaring need….I wouldn’t mind a new corner. Jenkins at 22 would be nice.

  37. mancave001 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:40 PM

    15. Eagles: Chandler Jones, defensive end, Syracuse.

    —-Yeah, because we need another damn DE. I will OFF MYSELF if we do this. Trade up and get Cox, Brockers or Barron. I implore you, Fat Andy.

  38. bucwild05 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:40 PM

    Bucs trade up to #3 and get Richardson…. messes this all up.

  39. mjkelly77 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:40 PM

    Where’d you get the photo of Andrew Luck with Eddie Murphy as Buckwheat?

  40. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Apr 26, 2012 6:41 PM

    Tannehill makes ZERO sense to Seahawks. Not going to happen. No chance

  41. defeetrexryan says: Apr 26, 2012 6:42 PM

    I just hope I live to see the day where the Bengals select Jamarcus Russell III in the 2050 draft.

  42. ezmoover says: Apr 26, 2012 6:43 PM

    Why would a cover-2 team like the Vikes take a corner at #3?

    Only a moron than doesn’t know football would mock that!

  43. tonythenose says: Apr 26, 2012 6:44 PM

    Why would Seahawks take Tannehill???

  44. ddjesus says: Apr 26, 2012 6:45 PM

    WHYYYYYYYY would the Seahawks pick Tannehill?

  45. ajknox88 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:46 PM

    Looks good with the given information that you have available to you.

  46. 7thlombardiontheway says: Apr 26, 2012 6:47 PM

    Today will be a wonderful day. Another superior human that has Steeler blood linking to our glorious ancestors will be drafting into our ranks where we will hone his skills into that of a pure Steeler. Whoa. We already know who we will draft. The physics of this world bend to us. These men will join us to defeat our enemies on and off the field.

    The Nation, now more than ever, is threatened politically. The league has been fully infiltrated by our ancient rival. The same rival that infiltrated the Nation itself during our birth. The same rival that keeps us from winning every game. We lose sometimes to give people a sense of hope, we lose sometimes because of sabotage. We applaud their efforts.

    They don’t understand that they are mere mortals and that they cannot alter the inevitable. These will be the last Steelers drafted into our ranks in the league know as the NFL. We will win this next Super Bowl despite certain arrangements in place by our enemies. We will leave and start our own league.

    A superior race, once one Nation, broken into eight. Reclaiming the game we created, we again set the standard, and the NFL gets on one knee and cries. We celebrate our endless success with a royal wave to our inferiors from afar.

  47. babyhorsemorgan says: Apr 26, 2012 6:47 PM

    It looks like the fellow on the left side of the picture altered the logo on his shirt to read “Play 80″, to gain competitive advantage. Short man syndrome.

  48. teal379 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:47 PM

    Can’t see GB taking Konz.

    1. TT feels that he has a possible center if needed already on staff in Evan Dietrich Smith

    2. Ted’s never drafted a Wisconsin lineman (before someone fires off – Tauscher was drafted in 2000, TT came on 2005)

    3. Ted’s a BPA guy, I believe there will be defensive help available that will rate out ahead of Konz.

    4. 12 picks and not a ton of holes, Ted could bundle and trade up to get someone they REALLY want for the D and fill up later on guys. Center isn’t a place I see Ted using a first rounder on – he’s lived on finding value in late rounds and C is a place he’ll feel comfort looking at late.

    Having said all that – I fully expect Ted to make me a liar.

  49. babyhorsemorgan says: Apr 26, 2012 6:50 PM

    Luck and Griffin were seperated at birth. In a long and difficult operation which left the heads of both horribly disfigured.

  50. jpgrenier says: Apr 26, 2012 6:55 PM

    Stephon Gilmore at 5th ?!?

    Wow Dominick must trade down !

  51. mathomp3 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:55 PM

    This may be your worst effort yet…

  52. hunst009 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:56 PM

    You really think the Packers will take a gurad(who actually is a center) over coples or someone else to help the pass rush. That is priority number 1!

  53. mrlynch33 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:57 PM

    Bruce Irvin to the Niners??? Doubt it. I say it will be Rueben Randle.

  54. dbones750 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:58 PM

    North Carolina Giants

  55. jluttrell32 says: Apr 26, 2012 6:58 PM

    As a Jaguar fan, this one has my approval. Here’s to hoping Blackmon isn’t another Michael Crabtree or in the Jags case, Reggie Williams!

  56. razorbyrd says: Apr 26, 2012 7:00 PM

    I do NOT want the Eagles to stay at 15 and draft Chandler Jones, I want them to be the ones trading with Buffalo to grab Barron… the secondary got TORCHED last year, so in my opinion drafting a D-lineman is pointless…

  57. rowdymon says: Apr 26, 2012 7:01 PM

    Please Browns, do not trade back into the first round to use a pick on Weeden (4th best QB). Pick RB, WR and TE if you get 3 first round picks.

  58. jimmypopnl says: Apr 26, 2012 7:04 PM

    Packers taking a guard? did you see the defense last year!?!@!?

    SMH

  59. bleed4philly says: Apr 26, 2012 7:10 PM

    I like the pick. The eagles will take Harrison smith in the 2nd. and fellow eagles fans need to stop posting stupid comments, we have a legit secondary coach now.

  60. gator2006 says: Apr 26, 2012 7:12 PM

    Hurry up and make another mock TRADE ALERT

  61. rickthefactor says: Apr 26, 2012 7:16 PM

    So the 49er’s are “drafting” a LB? That makes sense to draft somebody in the first round who won’t see the field for a couple of years. The last time i checked LB is NOT a position of need on a team that has the best LB core in the league! Harbaugh and Baalke both said that they are drafting who can step in and make an immediate impact. Lets rethink that #30 pick.

  62. christopher525 says: Apr 26, 2012 7:23 PM

    Coples goes at 9, period.

  63. mac3333 says: Apr 26, 2012 7:23 PM

    Kuechly a Bengal? I’ve been begging for this for weeks. Pipe dream as he doesnt last that long.

  64. trollhammer20 says: Apr 26, 2012 7:25 PM

    The Seahawks are not taking Tannehill. I would not be surprised, however, if they didn’t pick up a Wilson or Moore or Foles later in the draft.

    Their first pick will be used for a front 7 player, or David DeCastro, if he’s available.

  65. 77rainier77 says: Apr 26, 2012 7:51 PM

    Nfl draft tonight Trent Richardson

  66. chiefsfaninpa says: Apr 26, 2012 7:53 PM

    Ever time you try to mock, you just muck it up even more!! Thank god the draft is almost ready to start!

  67. drexelvol says: Apr 26, 2012 10:53 PM

    Wow, Evan. You got two correct out of 30. That’s 93% incorrect.
