2012 NFL Mock Draft: Where Will Baylor QB Robert Griffin III Land?
As most have expected for months, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III will enter his name into the 2012 NFL draft in the coming days. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported earlier Tuesday that the Heisman Trophy winner had made up his mind.
Here is Mortensen's tweet:
With Griffin's name in the draft pool, how long can he expect to last come April? In our 2012 NFL Mock Draft, not long. Here's the list:
1. Indianapolis Colts—Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
2. St. Louis Rams—Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
3. Minnesota Vikings—Matt Kalil, OT, USC
4. Cleveland Browns—Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
I think by the time we get to April, Griffin's name won't last to the fourth pick. With so many teams in need of a franchise quarterback, including the Browns, expect a team to move up ahead of No. 4 to ensure they have a chance to take Griffin.
Any number of teams could make the move up: Redskins, Dolphins, Seahawks and possibly even the Browns. In the end, Griffin should almost certainly be a top five pick. Whether he goes No. 2, 3 or 4 depends on whether or not a GM on one of those quarterback-needy teams decides to pull the trigger.
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers—Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
6. Washington Redskins—Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
7. Jacksonville Jaguars—Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
