Mock Draft II

Here's round two of my pre-draft mock. More information is trickling in, and there have also been some free agent signings in the past week that will change things.

1. Indianapolis - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
2. Washington - Robert Griffin, QB, Baylor
3. Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
4. Clevland - Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
5. Tampa Bay - Matt Kalil, OT, USC
6. St. Louis - Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
7. Jacksonville - Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
8. Miami - Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
9. Carolina - Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi St.
10. Buffalo - Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
11. Kansas City - David DeCastro, G, Stanford
12. Seattle - Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College
13. Arizona - Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
14. Dallas - Mark Barron, SS, Alabama
15. Philadelphia - Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
16. N.Y. Jets - Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois
17. Cincinnati - Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
18. San Diego - Courtney Upshaw, LB, Alabama
19. Chicago - Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
20. Tennessee - Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
21. Cincinnati - Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia
22. Clevleand - Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
23. Detroit - Nick Perry, DE, USC
24. Pittsburgh - Kevin Zeitler, G, Wisconsin
25. Denver - Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
26. Houston - Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
27. New England - Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin
28. Green Bay - Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise State
29. Baltimore - Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
30. San Francisco - Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
31. New England - Chandler Jones, DE/LB, Syracuse
32. N.Y. Giants - Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

Fleener might have been on the Steelers' radar but on Tuesday, they signed free agent tight end Leonard Pope, who gives them a solid backup to Heath Miller.

If we are gonna take Zeitler then by all means trade down and pick up an extra 2nd or 3rd giving us 4 picks in the top 3 rounds.

We could do worse then getting 4 guys like this in that scenario.
Kevin Zeitler G
Josh Chapman NT
Robert Turbin RB
Tank Carder ILB

I've seen too many drafts where we're taking Zietler or Silotulu at #24. I know we need a guard (or 2), but thats such an overreach that it isn't funny. Both guys will go between 30 and 56, and to take one at 24 is a waste of draft position. If thats who we want, I agree with Kingmagyar, trade down to 30 to 35 and take him there, pick up a third at the same time.

I would love if the draft played out like Kingmagyar suggested. I'm really digging Tank Carder too. Seems like a perfect fit for Pittsburgh.

I want Cordy Glenn to fall. Love that he can move around the line.

Heard a knock on Cordy Glenn by Mike Mayock on NFL net the other night where he suggested that if he is the 5th ranked Tackle on his board that translates into a mid 2nd round pick. If he is being looked at as a guard he still is 3rd or 4th. So there is a good chance Cordy Glenn will be there for the Steelers. They still may pass on him though. I like him for the RT position and taking him in round 1 and a nice guard in the 2nd would have that line taken care of for maybe years to come.
