1. IND—Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
Luck is the best quarterback prospect to come out since John Elway.
The Colts would be crazy to pass on their savior.
2. WAS (via STL)—Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor
The Redskins made the right move trading up for RGIII. He has incredible upside and is worth the massive number of picks they gave up. He's a real-deal talent.
3. MIN—Matt Kalil, OT, Southern California
Kalil projects as a near-perfect franchise left tackle. He will be a staple on the Vikings offensive line and will benefit both the running and passing game.
4. CLE—Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
Claiborne will be a shutdown corner in the NFL. His value is far too high, and he's the safest pick here for the Browns.
5. TB—Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
Richardson has all the potential to be the next best running back in the league. He's strong, exceptionally fast, agile, has great vision and is going to make this Buccaneers team very dangerous.
6. STL (via WAS)—Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
Drafting Blackmon has become a must for the Rams since losing Brandon Lloyd in free agency. They desperately need to give Sam Bradford a target to throw to. The team also loves his run-after-catch skills.
7. JAX—Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Coples may be a risky pick here, but his upside is well worth it. If the Jaguars can coach him up, he has potential to be a great end in this league.
8. MIA—Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
Say what you will, but the Dolphins desperately need a quarterback. This may not be a popular pick, and it's a huge stretch, but Miami needs to take the shot.
9. CAR—Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
Brockers is an absolute beast, and he's going to thrive being coached by Ron Rivera. He has the intangibles to be a star.
10. BUF—Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
The Bills have a big need to fill at tackle, so this pick would make the most sense. Reiff is a former tight end and has elite athleticism for a tackle.
11. KC—David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
The Chiefs will round out a great offseason with this pick. DeCastro is the best guard to come out since Steve Hutchinson and will make this offensive line elite.
12. SEA—Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
Kuechly is athletic, and he's got a nose for the ball. The Seahawks took care of offense in free agency, and this pick will take care of their need at middle linebacker.
13. ARZ—Nick Perry, OLB, Southern California
Perry is the highest-ranked defensive end on my board from a talent standpoint, and he's a steal here at 13, especially for a team desperate for talent on the edge.
14. DAL—Melvin Ingram, OLB, South Carolina
Dallas will be getting a speedy and athletic outside linebacker it can use to replace Anthony Spencer. He will put a ton of pressure on the quarterback.
15. PHI—Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
Poe is a dominant defensive lineman who can cause havoc all across the line. The Eagles desperately need the help, so they'll be happy to take him.
16. NYJ—Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
The Jets have so many needs to fill that they'll be wise to go with the best player available here. Floyd will be a very valuable weapon for Mark Sanchez—or Tim Tebow.
17. CIN (via OAK)—Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
Wright is a speedy wideout who's going to become very dangerous on this offense. He'll add a whole new element and really open things up for A.J. Green.
18. SD—Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
Gilmore is the second-rated corner on my board. He may not be a big name, but he's a versatile and talented corner who can really help out this defense.
19. CHI—Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford
With Mike Tice taking over the offense, Fleener's athletic ability at the tight end position will be in demand. His 4.45 at the Stanford pro day woke up evaluators who had Fleener falling to the second or third round.
20. TEN—Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
Jeffery has incredible upside as a deep-threat receiver, and the Titans desperately need him as a weapon. This is a great pick for the Titans.
21. CIN—Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
The Bengals are going to eventually want to move Nate Clements to the nickel as he gets older, so drafting Kirkpatrick here makes that move a lot easier. Despite his character issues, his talent makes him worth the risk.
22. CLE (via ATL)—Lamar Miller, RB, Miami-FL
Browns fans may be mad about passing up on Richardson at No. 4, but taking Miller here will make up for that. He's got great speed and elusiveness, and he will be dangerous for this offense.
23. DET—Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia
The Lions have to upgrade their offensive line, and Glenn is a versatile and athletic player who can fill needs now and in the future.
24. PIT—Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama
Upshaw is the real deal as an outside linebacker, and he fits this Pittsburgh team like a glove. There isn't a safer pick not named Andrew Luck in this draft.
25. DEN—Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
The Broncos may consider taking a lineman here, but with none worth the value of this pick, they'll take Cox, who will make their already dangerous defense even better.
26. HOU—Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
Hill's speed can make him elite on this offense. He'll be able to stretch the defense and help out both the running and passing game.
27. NE (via NO)—Andrew Branch, OLB, Clemson
A fast-rising prospect, Branch is a classic college defensive end who has a deadly first step to make the transition to outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense.
28. GB—Whitney Mercilus, OLB, Illinois
Mercilus is a pass-rushing specialist who will fit in great as a 3-4 OLB across from Clay Matthews. His draft stock is soaring after leading the NCAA with 16 sacks in 2011.
29. BAL—Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama
The Ravens need to start thinking long-term at linebacker, and Hightower fits their system perfectly. He will thrive learning under Ray Lewis and company.
30. SF—Peter Konz, OG, Wisconsin
Konz is the No. 1-rated center, so he's a steal here for a 49ers team with a desperate need.
31. NE—Kendall Reyes, DE, Connecticut
The Patriots will move back to a 3-4 defense in 2012, and that means finding a big defensive end to stop the run. Reyes will likely team with Jonathan Fanene, whom the team picked up in free agency, to be the bookends of the defensive line.
32. NYG—Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
Adams has incredible upside and intangibles as a lineman. The Giants will have to work on his footwork and fundamentals, but he's well worth the time.
