2012 NFL Draft: Matt Miller's Final 7-Round Mock Draft

0 of 7

    Andrew Luck will be an Indianapolis Colt. Robert Griffin III is headed to Washington to join the Redskins. After that, who knows? The 2012 NFL draft, previously thought to lack intrigue, will get real interesting if the Minnesota Vikings defy conventional wisdom and team needs by passing on Matt Kalil from USC. If that happens, prepare for all sorts of hysteria.

    The NFL draft is never an exact science, more like common sense mixed with some logic and a lot of guessing. With that in mind, here is an updated look at every pick by every team in the 2012 draft as we see it happening. This is not a look at what I would do, but my best guess based on team needs, player value and current NFL rumors.

Round 1

1 of 7

    1. Indianapolis ColtsAndrew Luck, Stanford, QB

    Notes: Who else would it be? The Indianapolis Colts "luck" into the best NFL draft prospect of the last 2000s (or more). Peyton who?

     

    2. Washington Redskins (from St. Louis Rams)Robert Griffin III, Baylor, QB

    Notes: The Redskins traded three draft picks for the rights to get this man. The pressure is on.

     

    3. Minnesota VikingsMorris Claiborne, LSU, CB

    Notes: The first of many surprises in Round 1, the Minnesota Vikings take a look at the three quarterbacks in their division (Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Jay Cutler) and decide it is best to find an elite cornerback now and draft a tackle later.

     

    4. Cleveland BrownsTrent Richardson, Alabama, RB

    Notes: A pick too safe and smart for it to not happen. Richardson will give the Browns a real offensive threat. As much as they need a receiver, pairing Justin Blackmon with Colt McCoy isn't going to score many touchdowns. Richardson's run ability will.

     

    5. Tampa Bay BuccaneersMatt Kalil, Southern California, OT

    Notes: Kalil's fall becomes the Buccaneers' good fortune. Donald Penn could be moved to right tackle, Jeremy Trueblood could finally be benched and Josh Freeman can live happy behind a much-improved offensive line after the signing of Carl Nicks and drafting of Kalil.

     

    6. Rams (from Redskins)Fletcher Cox, Mississippi State, DT

    Notes: The Rams can survive with second-round picks at wide receiver, but where Jeff Fisher needs to build his team is at defensive tackle. Cox is the elite defensive lineman of this class, with great three-technique ability to split defenders and rush the passer.

     

    7. Jacksonville JaguarsMelvin Ingram, South Carolina, DE

    Notes: The team wanted to sign Mario Williams in free agency, but he never got to leave Buffalo. Instead it'll draft Melvin Ingram and let him terrorize quarterbacks off the edge. Ingram could realistically play defensive end or outside linebacker here.

     

    8. Miami DolphinsRyan Tannehill, Texas A&M, QB

    Notes: A huge reach—and a mistake of a pick—but the Dolphins will do this come draft day. The team has been backed into a corner by its inability to sign a free-agent quarterback not named David Garrard, so this reach will suffice.

     

    9. Carolina PanthersStephon Gilmore, South Carolina, CB

    Notes: The Panthers will look hard at Luke Kuechly and the defensive tackles available, but they can't pass on a cornerback in a division that features Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Josh Freeman.

     

    10. Buffalo BillsMichael Floyd, Notre Dame, WR

    Notes: Others may want Justin Blackmon or Riley Reiff here, but the Bills need someone who can stretch the field and get Stevie Johnson open underneath. Floyd can be that guy to open up the offense for Ryan Fitzpatrick.

     

    11. Kansas City ChiefsDavid DeCastro, Stanford, OG

    Notes: DeCastro has to be the top-rated guy on the Chiefs' board, and if no trade options are available they will draft him to round out a very good offensive line. DeCastro and Jon Asamoah will become an elite tandem at the position.

     

    12. Seattle SeahawksLuke Kuechly, Boston College, ILB

    Notes: The signing of Barrett Ruud was nothing but a smokescreen to hide the Seahawks' love of Luke Kuechly. The Boston College product could start from day one as a middle or weak-side linebacker—both areas of need in Seattle.

     

    13. Arizona CardinalsJustin Blackmon, Oklahoma State, WR

    Notes: The media-hyped Blackmon falls to a point where he's a much better value. The Cardinals have other needs, but they simply draft the highest-rated guy on their board. He'll also help get Larry Fitzgerald more looks in the passing game.

     

    14. Dallas CowboysMark Barron, Alabama, SS

    Notes: The Cowboys tend to fall in love with one player and draft him. Last year it worked when they added tackle Tyron Smith. This year's man crush is on Mark Barron, a hard-hitting safety who can help turn around the finesse culture of the Dallas defense over the last few seasons.

     

    15. Philadelphia EaglesQuinton Coples, North Carolina, DT

    Notes: Coples "falls" a bit on draft day, but realistically, this is where he belongs. The Eagles will slide him in at defensive tackle—the position he had his most success at—while allowing him to work some at defensive end to pressure weaker tackles.

     

    16. New York JetsCourtney Upshaw, Alabama, OLB

    Notes: The Jets like Aaron Maybin's potential, but Calvin Pace and Bryan Thomas are rotational players only. Courtney Upshaw's abilities in coverage, against the run and when rushing the passer are much needed.

     

    17. Cincinnati Bengals (from Oakland Raiders)Kendall Wright, Baylor, WR

    Notes: Adding weapons for Andy Dalton and finding ways to free up A.J. Green are the keys to this move. Wright can also contribute as a return man. Finding as many ways as possible to get this kid the ball would be advisable.

     

    18. San Diego ChargersMichael Brockers, LSU, DE

    Notes: The team's 2011 first-rounder, Corey Liuget, struggled in his rookie season and is still a question mark as a starter. Michael Brockers will step in and lock down a defensive end position for the next decade in the Chargers' 3-4 defense.

     

    19. Chicago BearsNick Perry, Southern California, DE

    Notes: Perry slips down the board a bit, but the Bears will gladly end his free fall. A dominant pass-rusher who needs to work on his run-stuffing ability, Perry is an ideal fit opposite Julius Peppers. And yes, NFC North quarterbacks should be scared.

     

    20. Tennessee TitansWhitney Mercilus, Illinois, DE

    Notes: Finding a pass rush is the key in Tennessee. The 2011 draft class performed great, but now the team needs to find a premier edge rusher who can attack the backfield in the now wide-open AFC South.

     

    21. Cincinnati BengalsDre Kirkpatrick, Alabama, CB

    Notes: Replacing Johnathan Joseph was harder than the team expected last year. A barrage of veteran signings didn't fill the void, but drafting Kirkpatrick will. In a worst-case scenario, he can move to free safety and be a star.

     

    22. Browns (from Atlanta Falcons)Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina, WR

    Notes: My top-ranked wide receiver isn't likely to be drafted early, but the Browns will be glad to take him on opposite Greg Little. Jeffery and Little have the potential to be nightmares for cornerbacks in the AFC North for the next decade.

     

    23. Detroit LionsRiley Reiff, Iowa, OT

    Notes: The Lions do a great job of drafting the best player available, even when it doesn't fill an immediate need. This time around, the top player happens to fill a massive need. Reiff allows the team insurance as Jeff Backus nears retirement and gives Matthew Stafford a reliable succession plan at left tackle.

     

    24. Pittsburgh SteelersDontari Poe, Memphis, DT

    Notes: Casey Hampton has been brilliant in the middle of the 3-4 defense, but his days are numbered. Dontari Poe has incredible size and speed, something you truly cannot coach. The Steelers love to draft for future needs, and this is a classic pick for them.

     

    25. Denver BroncosDoug Martin, Boise State, RB

    Notes: Lost in the Peyton Manning signing was the need for a featured running back who can operate off play-action, run off tackle and catch out of the backfield. Knowshon Moreno is done in Denver, and Willis McGahee is both old and a poor fit. Martin is the ideal back for the Manning/Denver offense.

     

    26. Houston TexansStephen Hill, Georgia Tech, WR

    Notes: On top of the Texans' draft needs is a big-play wide receiver opposite Andre Johnson. Stephen Hill is raw, but he brings legit speed and good run-blocking skills to the position. The coaching staff can teach him to run routes by September.

     

    27. New England Patriots (from New Orleans Saints)Dont'a Hightower, Alabama, ILB

    Notes: Bill Belichick taps into the Alabama pipeline again to find an athletic linebacker for his 3-4 defense. Brandon Spikes and Hightower could give the Patriots much more versatility and allow the team to keep Jerod Mayo at outside linebacker.

     

    28. Green Bay PackersShea McClellin, Boise State, OLB

    Notes: Perhaps the worst-kept secret in the draft world, the Green Bay Packers need an outside linebacker, and they have their eye on the Boise State linebacker to fill the void.

     

    29. Baltimore RavensCordy Glenn, Georgia, OG/OT

    Notes: A versatile offensive lineman who can play guard or tackle, Glenn will likely spell Bryant McKinnie and Michael Oher at tackle for this season and would enter the starting lineup at either tackle or guard in 2013.

     

    30. San Francisco 49ersAmini Silatolu, Midwestern State, OG

    Notes: The 49ers filled every need on their roster through free agency, expect the one at right guard. They let their two incumbent guards leave in free agency. The writing is on the wall, and Silatolu is the big, powerful guard that Trent Baalke loves.

     

    31. PatriotsVinny Curry, Marshall, OLB

    Notes: The chances that the Patriots keep this pick are slim, which could mean they go outside linebacker with their first pick. With the board falling this way, Curry becomes a need and value pick for Bill Belichick's defense.

     

    32. New York GiantsCoby Fleener, Stanford, TE

    Notes: Travis Beckum and Jake Ballard are out with torn ACLs this season, leaving only the talented but unproven free agent Martellus Bennett at tight end. Fleener has the size and speed to open up the Giants offense with the loss of the tight ends and Mario Manningham.

Round 2

2 of 7

    1. (33) RamsRueben Randle, LSU, WR

    Notes: Adding a wide receiver for Sam Bradford has to be an early need, and Randle has the speed to pick up big yards after the catch.

     

    2. (34) ColtsPeter Konz, Wisconsin, C

    Notes: Protecting Andrew Luck will be a huge priority, and finding a center for him to learn and grow with is just smart football. If Luck is Manning's replacement, Peter Konz will be Jeff Saturday's.

     

    3 (35). VikingsMike Adams, Ohio State, OT

    Notes: The Vikings passed on a left tackle in Round 1 but get lucky that Mike Adams failed a drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine and falls to the top of the second round.

     

    4. (36) BuccaneersJamell Fleming, Oklahoma, CB

    Notes: Eric Wright can't be considered a No. 1 cornerback, no matter how much money Tampa is giving him. Jamell Fleming's physical style of play at the line of scrimmage makes him a perfect fit in Tampa.

     

    5. (37) BrownsKevin Zeitler, Wisconsin, OG

    Notes: The Browns need to rebuild their guard tandem, and drafting the best run-blocking guard in the draft will go a long way in doing so. Zeitler will be a key to opening rushing lanes for Trent Richardson.

     

    6. (38) JaguarsKendall Reyes, Connecticut, DT

    Notes: Reyes has late-first-round potential but slips to the Jaguars here. He'll be a possible replacement for Terrance Knighton, who is recovering from eye surgery that could keep him out for some time.

     

    7. (39) Rams (Redskins)Harrison Smith, Notre Dame, SS

    Notes: Jeff Fisher wants to build a tough football team, and first-rounder Fletcher Cox starts that trend. Harrison Smith would be an instant starter at strong safety and a big-time hitter and cover man in deep coverage.

     

    8. (40) PanthersDevon Still, Penn State, DT

    Notes: The Panthers need a defensive tackle who can rush the passer. Devon Still is a great fit in a three-technique, as he's quick enough to split gaps and get to the backfield.

     

    9. (41) BillsJonathan Martin, Stanford, OT

    Notes: Martin's stock was overrated early, but realistically he should be drafted in the early stages of Round 2. The Bills will be happy to find a starting quality tackle at pick No. 41 overall.

     

    10. (42) DolphinsAndre Branch, Clemson, DE

    Notes: As the Dolphins move to a 4-3 defense they will look to add a defensive end opposite Cameron Wake. Branch's first step and hand use will make him a terror opposite one of the AFC's best pass-rushers.

     

    11. (43) SeahawksChandler Jones, Syracuse, DE

    Notes: After grabbing a linebacker in Round 1, the Seahawks go back to defense in Round 2 and add a talented three-down end who can line up on the left side and take on the run while also pressuring the quarterback on passing downs.

     

    12. (44) ChiefsMike Martin, Michigan, DT

    Notes: The Chiefs need a nose tackle, and Mike Martin has the ideal body and strength to play the position. A former wrestler, Martin's leverage is textbook good.

     

    13. (45) CowboysJared Crick, Nebraska, DE

    Notes: Continuing the trend of adding on defense, Dallas goes big in adding Jared Crick. He's a solid run-defender who will anchor the edge of the team's three-man defensive line.

     

    14. (46) EaglesBrandon Weeden, Oklahoma State, QB

    Notes: Michael Vick is a sure thing to miss time with injury at some point in 2012, so finding a backup quarterback not named Trent Edwards or Mike Kafka is a good idea. The 28-year-old Weeden will be ready to play early in Philly's West Coast offense.

     

    15. (47) JetsMitchell Schwartz, California, OT

    Notes: A versatile offensive lineman who can play guard or tackle, Schwartz would fill a void on the Jets offensive line at either right guard or right tackle.

     

    16. (48) Patriots (from Raiders)Casey Hayward, Vanderbilt, CB

    Notes: The Patriots need to keep adding on the defensive side of the ball. Casey Hayward is a solid zone cover man who can step in right away and excel off the ball. 

     

    17. (49) ChargersKelechi Osemele, Iowa State, OG/OT

    Notes: San Diego's offensive line has numerous holes, and Kelechi Osemele is versatile enough to fill a need wherever the hole pops up. He's best suited at guard but could be a right tackle in the future.

     

    18. (50) BearsBen Jones, Georgia, C

    Notes: Roberto Garza's days are numbered in Chicago. Ben Jones is a power center who can fire off the line of scrimmage and make big plays in the run game.

     

    19. (51) Eagles (from Cardinals)Lamar Miller, Miami (Fla.), RB

    Notes: The Eagles don't have major needs at any one position, but they would like to add a backup running back who can spell LeSean McCoy and also contribute on special teams. Miller is an electric back who offers big-play ability whenever he touches the ball.

     

    20. (52) TitansMohamed Sanu, Rutgers, WR

    Notes: Tennessee will welcome back Kenny Britt in 2012, but it still needs help at wide receiver. Sanu has versatility and explosion to be a factor in space. He'll open up coverage to free up Britt.

     

    21. (53) BengalsBrandon Washington, Miami (Fla.), OG

    Notes: The Bengals let Nate Livings walk in free agency, and they need to bring in a guard who can start from day one. Washington is a good run-blocker and solid all-around athlete who fits the Bengals' style of big, strong offensive linemen.

     

    22. (54) LionsJosh Robinson, UCF, CB

    Notes: Drafting a cornerback could be a need as early as Round 1. The Lions have no one on defense who has Josh Robinson's speed and playmaking ability.

     

    23. (55) FalconsCam Johnson, Virginia, DE

    Notes: John Abraham is back for one more year, but the Falcons need to start planning for life after John. Johnson is a versatile pass-rusher who even offers some ability to stand up in space and get the passer.

     

    24. (56) SteelersBobby Wagner, Utah State, OLB

    Notes: James Harrison has been elite, but he's on the verge of slowing down. Bobby Wagner is an exciting pass-rusher who comes from a small school but packs a big punch. 

     

    25. (57) BroncosJerel Worthy, Michigan State, DT

    Notes: The Broncos' biggest need is arguably defensive tackle, and they get lucky with Jerel Worthy falling down the board. Worthy has ideal skills to be a three-tech pass-rusher, but he needs to be coached up to get max production.

     

    26. (58) TexansJosh Chapman, Alabama, DT

    Notes: The Texans defense was much improved in 2011, but they still need to add a true nose tackle to replace Shaun Cody. Josh Chapman is that man. He's a short, stocky nose tackle who lives to take on blockers.

     

    27. Saints (forfeited)


     

    28. (59) PackersChris Polk, Washington, RB

    Notes: The Packers haven't tried to re-sign Ryan Grant and will enter the draft looking for a feature running back. Chris Polk is a great fit for their zone blocking scheme with excellent vision, patience and good third-down abilities.

     

    29. (60) RavensBilly Winn, Boise State, DE

    Notes: A classic Baltimore draft pick. Billy Winn may not be a need yet, but he'll become a key player in the future as they shuffle off veterans and reload with youth. Winn's versatility along the defensive line will be key to his playing time.

     

    30. (61) 49ersBrandon Boykin, Georgia, CB

    Notes: Carlos Rogers was great in 2011, earning himself a big payday in the offseason, but he's also an aging player. The team likes Tarell Brown and Chris Culliver a lot, but to stay on top of the NFC West the 49ers need to build depth at key positions.

     

    31. (62) PatriotsMarvin Jones, California, WR

    Notes: What do you get the team that has everything? More depth at receiver. But Jones has potential to be more than "just depth." He's big, strong and runs crisp routes. This has the smell of a rookie starter opposite Brandon Lloyd, with franchise-tagged Wes Welker in the slot.

     

    32. (63) GiantsDavid Wilson, Virginia Tech, RB

    Notes: The Giants would love to find a good complementary back to Ahmad Bradshaw, and Wilson's speed will do just that. He's a serious burner with a legit second gear.

Round 3

3 of 7

    1. (64) ColtsJanoris Jenkins, North Alabama, CB

    Notes: Jenkins falls down the board due to his numerous off-field issues, but Chuck Pagano and Ryan Grigson both come from teams where taking on a troubled player isn't off-limits when he presents a good value.

     

    2. (65) RamsLavonte David, Nebraska, OLB

    Notes: The Rams continue to add on defense, grabbing an undersized outside linebacker who has a nose for the ball against the run and is quick enough to attack in coverage.

     

    3. (66) VikingsBrian Quick, Appalachian State, WR

    Notes: The Vikings get back to drafting needs with value, targeting a big receiver with tremendous upside. Quick has the size and strength to be a big red-zone threat.

     

    4. (67) BrownsKirk Cousins, Michigan State, QB

    Notes: Colt McCoy may not be the answer at quarterback—and if not, the Browns need to add a potential player to develop. Cousins is a great fit in a West Coast offense.

     

    5. (68) BuccaneersGeorge Iloka, Boise State, FS

    Notes: The Buccaneers released Tanard Jackson, opening up a big hole at free safety. George Iloka is a much better tackler to begin with and has bigger upside in coverage.

     

    6. (69) RedskinsMychal Kendricks, California, ILB

    Notes: A sleeper who could be drafted much higher than this, Mychal Kendricks is a favorite of mine. He's a tough tackler who can rush the passer from the middle of the field. He'll be keyed in as London Fletcher's future replacement.

     

    7. (70) JaguarsNick Toon, Wisconsin, WR

    Notes: The Jaguars signed Laurent Robinson to fill a void at receiver, but they need more help. Toon is a good possession receiver who can move the chains.

     

    8. (71) BillsBrock Osweiler, Arizona State, QB

    Notes: Ryan Fitzpatrick needs to have a rebound year, but even if he becomes a true franchise quarterback there is need for depth and development. Osweiler has a big frame and tons of upside if developed.

     

    9. (72) DolphinsA.J. Jenkins, Illinois, WR

    Notes: A dynamic slot receiver with big-play potential after the catch, Jenkins will help cover up the Dolphins' big needs at receiver.

     

    10. (73) Dolphins (from Panthers through Bears)Dwayne Allen, Clemson, TE

    Notes: The passing game in Miami needs help, no matter what position it comes from. Tannehill, Jenkins and now Dwayne Allen will present a drastic improvement.

     

    11. (74) ChiefsTrumaine Johnson, Montana, CB

    Notes: Trumaine Johnson will become the No. 3 cornerback, but he also has ability at free safety. The Chiefs will start him out at cornerback and see about Kendrick Lewis' potential at free safety.

     

    12. (75) SeahawksIsaiah Pead, Cincinnati, RB

    Notes: The Seahawks are set with Marshawn Lynch, but they need to add depth. Pead has great No. 2 back skills with good speed and nice return skills to open up the offense.

     

    13. (76) Texans (from Eagles)Ron Brooks, LSU, CB

    Notes: Jason Allen is gone, opening up a spot at cornerback. Johnathan Joseph is a stud at one corner spot, but no one has stepped up as the No. 2 guy. Brooks has insane potential but has hidden at LSU behind Morris Claiborne and Tyrann Mathieu.

     

    14. (77) JetsJames-Michael Johnson, Nevada, ILB

    Notes: Bart Scott could be a cap casualty this summer, but at worst James-Michael Johnson is a solid depth player who will become a starter as soon as Scott hangs up his cleats.

     

    15. Oakland Raiders exercised pick in supplemental draft


    16. (78) ChargersOrson Charles, Georgia, TE

    Notes: Antonio Gates is still a great player, but the Chargers could easily go with a two tight end set and punish secondaries in the AFC West with the athleticism of Gates and Charles together on the field.

     

    17. (79) BearsZach Brown, North Carolina, OLB

    Notes: Lance Briggs is elite but aging. Nick Roach needs replacing. Zach Brown is a great coverage 'backer who needs to toughen up in order to take on the run, but he has excellent upside.

     

    18. (80) CardinalsJonathan Massaquoi, Troy, OLB

    Notes: A tough pass-rusher who needs some work on his technique, Massaquoi has a shot to start opposite Sam Acho early in his first year.

     

    19. (81) CowboysJarius Wright, Arkansas, WR

    Notes: Dallas goes offensive to find a replacement for Laurent Robinson as the No. 3 receiver and Dez Bryant as a return man with the electric Jarius Wright.

     

    20. (82) TitansJames Brown, Troy, OG

    Notes: The Titans' run game suffered in 2011 due in part to the poor play of the interior offensive line. Adding Steve Hutchinson will help in the short term, but picking up Brown ensures a good Plan B for the future.

     

    21. (83) BengalsMarkelle Martin, Oklahoma State, FS

    Notes: Cutting Chris Crocker opened up a hole in the secondary that can be filled by the hard-hitting, rangy Martin.

     

    22. (84) FalconsTerrell Manning, North Carolina State, OLB

    Notes: The Falcons lost inside linebacker Curtis Lofton in free agency, opening up a need for depth at the group. Sean Weatherspoon is an elite player, but opposite him Atlanta could easily look for a youth movement.

     

    23. (85) LionsTyrone Crawford, Boise State, DE

    Notes: The Lions once again go best player available while filling a need. Crawford can step in as the future replacement for Kyle Vanden Bosch at left end.

     

    24. (86) SteelersBobby Massie, Mississippi, OT

    Notes: The Pittsburgh offensive line needs able bodies, and Bobby Massie can play right tackle and guard. His versatility brings value, but he could be a surprise year-one starter.

     

    25. (87) BroncosAlfonzo Dennard, Nebraska, CB

    Notes: Punching a police officer one week before the draft is a sure way to move your stock from Round 2 to Round 3.

     

    26. (88) Eagles (from Texans)Josh Kaddu, Oregon, OLB

    Notes: Getting faster and stronger on defense remains the word for the Philadelphia draft. Kaddu is a tough, instinctive linebacker who could see himself starting early.

     

    27. (89) SaintsDwight Bentley, La.-Lafayette, CB

    Notes: Who knows which players will or won't be suspended in New Orleans? At this point it's safe to bet the team needs depth all over the defensive side of the ball.

     

    28. (90) PackersBrandon Thompson, Clemson, DT

    Notes: A versatile defensive lineman who has the right size to play defensive end in a 3-4 defense.

     

    29. (91) RavensRonnell Lewis, Oklahoma, OLB

    Notes: It is now or never for Sergio Kindle, and Ronnell Lewis is drafted to provide insurance against the "never" part of that equation.

     

    30. (92) 49ersMarvin McNutt, Iowa, WR

    Notes: The 49ers did great things in free agency, but Randy Moss isn't a long-term option at receiver. Marvin McNutt doesn't have great speed, but he's a technician who knows how to get open and could be a starter in year two.

     

    31. (93) PatriotsDeQuan Menzie, Alabama, CB

    Notes: The best slot cover man in this year's draft, the Patriots will pair Menzie with Casey Hayward and Devin McCourty against multiple-receiver sets. 

     

    32. (94) GiantsZebrie Sanders, Florida State, OT

    Notes: William Beatty will receive the starting nod early, but should he struggle, Sanders could quickly become the starter at left or right tackle.

     

    33. (95) Raiders (comp)Bruce Irvin, West Virginia, OLB

    Notes: The Raiders will look for solid pass-rushers under Reggie McKenzie's watch. Irvin is a one-trick pony who brings no value outside of rushing the quarterback—but he's incredible good at that one trick.
