NFL Draft Live Coverage of the 1st Round (17-32)

Andrew Luck selected as the number one pick of the 2012 NFL draft

Hello World,

Continuing on to the NFL Draft of the 1st round.

The Cincinnati Bengals selects Dre Kirkpatrick with the seventeenth(acquired  from Oakland in the Carson Palmer trade) overall pick. He is the third rated corner back in the NFL draft. He is coming out of the University of Alabama.

The San Diego Chargers selects Melvin Ingram with the eighteenth overall pick. Melvin Ingram is a top ten talent in the NFL draft playing defensive end. The San Diego Chargers gets an outstanding player in Ingram, and receives a gift by having him fall at eighteenth. Melvin Ingram is coming out of the University of South Carolina.

The Chicago Bears selects Shea McClellin with the nineteenth overall pick. I am surprised with this pick. Because, the Bears had major needs at Defensive End, and at the offensive line. I suppose the Bears wants to start preparing to replace their star  line bakers, or add to it. Fun fact about Shea McClellin is that he helps at his families farm. Shea McClellin is coming out of Boise State University.

The Tennessee Titans selects Kendall Wright with the twentith overall pick. He is an elite talent at wide receiver. Some scouts fears that he may become a failure in the NFL. He is coming out of  Baylor University.

The New England Patriots trades away their first and third round pick to the Cincinnati Bengals and their first round pick. New England moves up six spots with this trade.

The New England Patriots selects Chandler Jones with the twenty-first overall pick. He is one of the top defensive players in the draft. And some analyst claims (Jon Gruden), that he will be the best player in the draft. Chandler Jones brother currently plays defensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. Chandler Jones is coming out of the University of Syracuse.

The Cleveland Browns selects Brandon Weeden with the twenty-second overall pick (pick acquired from Atlanta Falcons). He is a very old quarterback coming out of college at the age of 28 years. He is coming out of Oklahoma State University.

The Detroit Lions selects Riley Reiff with the twenty-third overall pick. He is the number two rated offensive tackle in the NFL draft.  The Lions gotta an absolute steal, since he was rated a top ten talent. He is coming out of the University of Iowa.

The Pittsburgh Steelers selects David Decastro with the twenty-fourth overall pick. He is the best offensive guard in the NFL draft. He is coming out of Stanford University.

The New England Patriots trades their 31st overall pick, and a fourth round pick to the Denver Broncos and their 25th overall pick.

The New England Patriots selects Dont’a Hightower with the twenty-fifth overall pick. He is an outstanding linebacker, and is coming out of the University of Alabama.

The Houston Texans selects Whitney Mercilus with the twenty-sixth overall pick. He led the NCAA with sixteen sacks as a defensive end. He is coming out of the University of Illinois.

The Cincinnati Bengals selects Kevin Zeitler with the twenty-seventh overall pick. He plays on the offensive line at the guard position. He is coming out of the University of Wisconsin.

The Green Bay Packers selects Nick Perry with twenty-eighth overall pick. He is an athletic defensive end coming out of the University of Southern California.

The Minnesota Vikings trades their second and fourth round pick to the Baltimore Ravens. In return they receive Baltimore Ravens twenty-ninth overall pick.

The Minnesota Vikings selects Harrison Smith with the twenty-nine overall pick. He is the number two rated safety in the NFL Draft. He is coming out of Notre Dame University.

The San Francisco 49ers selects A.J. Jenkins with the thirtieth overall pick. He is coming out of the University of Illinois.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers trades their second and fourth round pick to the Denver Broncos, for their 1st round pick (31st overall).

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selects Doug Martin with the thirty-first overall pick. He is a running back coming out of Boise State University.

The New York Giants selects David Wilson with thirty-second(last pick from 1st round) overall pick. He is a running back with blazing speed, coming out of Virginia Tech.

It has been an incredible first round. I think New England Patriots are the winner of the first round. Because, they have added pieces to their defense (needs a lot of improving).
