We're through the first three quarters of the Daily Norseman 2012 Community Mock Draft. We apologize for getting a little bit behind. . .we've had interviews to conduct, stadiums to panic about, that sort of thing. But, if we double up here over the next few days, I think we can get everything knocked out before draft day.
Anyhow, the first 24 picks have gone like this:
- Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck, QB Stanford
- Washington Redskins - Robert Griffin III, QB Baylor
- Minnesota Vikings - Matt Kalil, OT USC
- Cleveland Browns - Trent Richardson, RB Alabama
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Morris Claiborne, CB LSU
- St. Louis Rams - Justin Blackmon, WR Oklahoma State
- Jacksonville Jaguars - Michael Floyd, WR Notre Dame
- Miami Dolphins - Ryan Tannehill, QB Texas A&M
- Carolina Panthers - Quinton Coples, DE North Carolina
- Buffalo Bills - Riley Reiff, OT Iowa
- Kansas City Chiefs - David DeCastro, OG Stanford
- Seattle Seahawks - Luke Kuechly, LB Boston College
- Arizona Cardinals - Jonathan Martin, OT Stanford
- Dallas Cowboys - Dre Kirkpatrick, CB Alabama
- Philadelphia Eagles - Fletcher Cox, DT Mississippi State
- New York Jets - Melvin Ingram, DE South Carolina
- Cincinnati Bengals - Stephon Gilmore, CB South Carolina
- San Diego Chargers - Courtney Upshaw, OLB/DE Alabama
- Chicago Bears - Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia
- Tennessee Titans - Dontari Poe DT Memphis
- Cincinnati Bengals - Mark Barron, SS Alabama
- Cleveland Browns - Kendall Wright WR Baylor
- Detroit Lions - Janoris Jenkins CB North Alabama
- Pittsburgh Steelers - Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
That brings us to the Denver Broncos, who have had a regular interesting off-season, to say the least. You may or may not have heard that they signed that Peyton Manning fellow to play quarterback, and shipped Tim Tebow off to the New York Jets.
So where do they need some help? Well, they could use somebody at running back, as Knowshown Moreno has had his issues. They need some help at center as well. Their defensive line is a bit of a worry as well, both on the inside and at the end spots. They have a few different directions they can go. . .but hey, at least they have their quarterback, which is nice.
With that, have at it, folks!
