It’s certainly still very early in the draft season but it’s never too early for a mock draft! Here’s my second crack at one, and my first one post-Senior Bowl. (To see my first, click here.)Also be sure to check out a different take on the Mock Draft from BLD’s own Andrew here.
Each BuffaLowDown mock draft is featured in the DC Pro Sports Report, WalterFootball.com, Sports Jabber, hailredskins.com and fftoolbox.com mock draft databases. Each site keeps track of a huge number mock drafts all over the web.
1. Indianapolis Colts
Andrew Luck – QB, Stanford
This is the pick and Peyton Manning is history. Let’s hope he’s not going to Miami or the Jets.
2. St. Louis Rams
Matt Kalil – OT, USC
I still think the Rams trade here, but if not Kalil is probably the closest thing to a “can’t miss” prospect possible. Gives the Rams a chance to replace the disappointing 2009 #2 pick Jason Smith at LT.
4. Cleveland Browns
Robert Griffin III – QB, Baylor
And without even trading up, the Browns nab their next QB at #4.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Trent Richardson – RB, Alabama
If I were the Bucs, I’d take Morris Claiborne, but Richardson is an absurd talent. He’s going to be a star.
