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

April 27, 2012

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).

Signing off

April 27, 2012

Hello World,

It is April 26, 2012, and tonight is the NFL Draft. The NFL draft starts at 8pm eastern time. The NFL Draft will be completed in a three day span. The first round will take place on Thursday. The second and third round will take place on Friday, and round four through seven will finish on Saturday. Each team are given seven draft choices. The NFL teams can trade some of their draft picks if they chose to do, or even trade future picks.

The Colts have the first overall pick, and they have selected Andrew Luck from Stanford University. He was the number one rated quarter back coming out of college. He received the Maxwell Award (best quarterback in college) in 2011. Even his father was a quarterback in the NFL, so it is assume that Andrew Luck has it in his genes to play quarterback in the NFL. He is also known for his intelligence, after all will finish his bachelor’s degree at STANFORD UNIVERSITY.

The Washington Redskins have the second overall pick, and have selected Robert Griffin III aka, RG3. He shocked the college world, and won the prestigious NCAA Heisman trophy (Known as the best college football player). He was discussed to be potentially the best player in the draft. He has a strong arm(can throw the ball far, and fast), and is incredibly fast. He ran the forty yard dash at a 4.41(super fast, too fast for a quarterback) at the NFL combine. He will have to deal with a lot of pressure, since the Washington Redskins gave up three first round picks, and a second rounder to the St. Louis Rams for the second pick overall. Robert Griffin III is coming out of Baylor University.

The Minnesota traded away their third pick overall to the Cleveland Browns for the fourth pick, a 4th round, and 7th round pick in the NFL draft.

The Cleveland Browns selects Trent Richardson with the third overall pick. He was the best running back in the NFL draft, and has been compared to Adrian Peterson, from a skill standpoint. Trent Richardson is coming out of the University of Alabama.

The Minnesota Vikings selects Offensive tackle Matt Kalil, with the fourth overall pick. He had an impressive NFL combine, and is known for his athleticism. However, there are questions regarding his physical strength. In large part he was drafted in order to protect Minnesota Vikings last years first round pick in Christian Ponder. Matt Kalil is coming out of the University of Southern California.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded away their fifth overall pick, to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Buccaneers will receive Jacksonville’s  seventh pick overall, and a fourth round draft pick.

The Jacksonville Jaguars selects Justin Blackmon with the fifth overall pick. Justin Blackmon is coming out of Oklahoma State University.

The St, Louis Rams traded away their sixth pick overall to the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams will receive the Dallas Cowboys first round, and second round draft pick.

The Dallas Cowboys selects Morris Claiborne with the sixth overall pick. The Cowboys makes an impressive draft trade, and gets arguably the fourth best player in the NFL draft. Morris Claireborne is coming out of Louisiana State University.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selects Mark Barron with the seventh pick overall. He was the highest rated Safety in the NFL draft. Mark Barron is coming out of the University of Alabama.

The Miami Dolphins selects Ryan Tannehill with the eighth overall pick. He is only a two year starter as a quarterback in college football. He was  formerly a receiver, but converted to quarterback. Which clearly demonstrates the speed of Ryan Tannehill. He is coming out of  Texas A & M University.

The Carolina Panthers selects Luke Kuechly with the ninth overall pick. He has the most tackles in the history of the NCAA. He is coming out of Boston College. Mel Kiper compares him to Brian Urlacher(top linebacker for the last decade).

The Buffalo Bills selects Stephon Gilmore with the tenth overall pick. The Bills were able to get the second best corner back in the NFL draft. He is a tremendous athlete, with a lot of size (6’0 and a half). He is coming out of the University of South Carolina.

The Kansas City Cheifs selects Dontari Poe with the eleventh overall pick. He has incredible outside, and plays as a defensive tackle. He is coming out of the University of Memphis.

The Philadelphia Eagles trades their fifteenth overall pick, 4th round pick, and 6th round pick to the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks gives up their twelve overall pick.

The Philadelphia Eagles selects Fletcher Cox with the twelve overall pick. Fletcher Cox has top ten talent, and is coming out of Mississippi State University.

The Arizona Cardinals selects Michael Floyd with the thirteenth overall pick. He is a star wide receiver from Notre Dame University. He is the second rated wide receiver in the NFL draft. He is faster, and bigger than the number one rated wide receiver in the NFL Draft (Justin Blackmon). The Arizona Cardinals may have been pressured to draft Michael Floyd, since their team captain publicly wanted the Cardinals to draft Michael Floyd.

The St. Louis Rams selects Michael Brockers with the fourteenth overall pick. He is a defensive tackle that reminds Jeff Fisher of Albert Hanesworth. He is coming out of Louisiana State University.

The Seattle Seahawks selects Bruce Irvin with the fifteenth overall pick. The Seahawks are reaching big time with this pick. There were way better Defensive Ends than Bruce Irvin. They Could have picked the number one rated Defensive End in Melvin Ingram or Quinton Coples. Bruce Irvin is coming out of West Virginia University.

The New York Jets selects Quinton Coples with the sixteenth overall pick. He is often compared the all pro Julius Peppers. He has all the athletic tools, and size in the world. However, the cause for Coples to drop to sixteenth pick is solely for his poor work ethic. Quinton Coples is coming out of the University of North Carolina.
