Mel Kiper's 2012 NFL Draft Big Board {1.4.12}
 

 

This is the final week for the 2012 NFL draft Big Board, where we're not sure who is in and who is out. That refers to the draft, of course. Last year, it was this week when Andrew Luck surprised a lot of people by announcing he'd stay at Stanford for another year. That shifted things. (Ask Carolina.) This week, a pair of juniors' declarations that they'll enter the draft also has shifted the picture. And next week, we'll know about all the others.

As always, read on and let me know who should be higher or who's been passed over, in your opinion. Juniors and draft-eligible sophomores are noted with an asterisk.

1Andrew Luck *AGE: 22DOB: 9/12/89HT: 6-4WT: 235POS: QBComp 288Att 404Pct 71.3Yds 3,517TD 37Int 10A typically brilliant, accurate, understated game for Luck to finish his Stanford career. I don't foresee a situation in which he relinquishes this spot before the draft. Has total package: arm strength, size, smarts and demeanor.

LAST WEEK: 1 | PLAYER CARD

2Matt Kalil *AGE: 22DOB: 7/6/89HT: 6-7WT: 295POS: OTGP 12GS 12Kalil was steady the entire season and has the full range of skills for the left tackle position, not to mention the pedigree. He has announced he'll be in the draft, and he could be challenged but is currently a safe bet for the top five.

LAST WEEK: 2 | PLAYER CARD

3Trent Richardson *AGE: 20DOB: 7/10/91HT: 5-11WT: 224POS: RBCar 263Yds 1,583Avg. 6.0TD 20This week we'll witness what should be his final game in college. Splitting carries in his first two seasons has helped him. He looks as strong as ever. Powerful, fast and with improved vision, he runs with good pad level and breaks tackles with ease.

LAST WEEK: 3 | PLAYER CARD

4Morris Claiborne *AGE: 21DOB: 2/7/90HT: 6-1WT: 185POS: CBTkl 46Sack 0Int 6Perhaps the lesser-known of the LSU corners will have a big game this week. He's just very good, an exceptional pure cover corner with impeccable instincts at the position. Locates the ball and can catch it. Not a burner, but plenty quick.

LAST WEEK: 4 | PLAYER CARD

5Justin Blackmon *AGE: 21DOB: 1/9/90HT: 6-1WT: 208POS: WRRec 121Yds 1,522Avg 12.6TD 18Blackmon did it again and has cemented his gaudy film status. A better prospect than recent OSU star Dez Bryant. Versatile, explosive and really works to get open. Great ball skills; breaks tackles.

LAST WEEK: 5 | PLAYER CARD

6Robert Griffin III *AGE: 21DOB: 2/12/90HT: 6-1WT: 220POS: QBComp 291Att 402Pct 72.4Yds 4,293TD 37Int 6I'm not buying any talk he'd be higher on some boards than Luck, but his altered delivery has resulted in better accuracy on downfield throws. Great kid, underrated passer, big-time athlete. No ill effects from 2009 knee injury. Remarkable numbers.

LAST WEEK: 6 | PLAYER CARD

7Riley Reiff *AGE: 23DOB: 12/1/88HT: 6-6WT: 300POS: OTGP 13GS 13Now the No. 2 tackle. With Reiff the tape doesn't lie -- and it may be the best tape of any LT this year because he's so complete. Durable, he has played from day one at Iowa. Ceiling a question, but he's very good now.

LAST WEEK: 9 | PLAYER CARD

8Quinton CoplesAGE: 21DOB: 6/22/90HT: 6-6WT: 285POS: DETkl 55Sack 7.5Int 0Production isn't amazing, but skill set is hard to look past. The size and talent are there, but he'll need to add to his arsenal with increased blocking attention. Great size and length to hold the edge as a 4-3 defensive end.

LAST WEEK: 8 | PLAYER CARD

9Jonathan Martin *AGE: 22DOB: 7/6/89HT: 6-6WT: 304POS: OTGP 13GS 13Martin is officially in. Trusted in the passing game as the blindside protection for Luck, he also does a great job in the run game. Given his athleticism, he has a chance to develop into a fantastic player on the left side.

LAST WEEK: 9 | PLAYER CARD

10Luke Kuechly *AGE: 20DOB: 4/20/91HT: 6-3WT: 237POS: LBTkl 191Sack 0.0Int 3Great instincts both against the run and even dropping his hips and falling into coverage. Dependable, a tackling machine, he makes great reads, sees the play develop and sheds blockers well. Solid status.

LAST WEEK: 10 | PLAYER CARD

11Devon StillAGE: 22DOB: 7/11/89HT: 6-5WT: 310POS: DTTkl 49Sack 4.5Int 0Jumps this week. A great penetrator, he has overcome health issues and has been extremely disruptive, breaking through double-teams to pile up TFLs. Could play a couple of spots at next level.

LAST WEEK: 11 | PLAYER CARD

12Cordy GlennAGE: 22DOB: 9/18/89HT: 6-5WT: 348POS: T/GGP 14GS 14Really experienced player whose best strength is versatility. Has spent time at tackle but can dominate at guard, and I'd expect whoever drafts him to ultimately have him blocking inside.

LAST WEEK: 13 | PLAYER CARD

13David DeCastroAGE: 21DOB: 1/1/90HT: 6-5WT: 310POS: OGGP 13GS 13Extremely consistent and is athletic and powerful in the run game. A rare guard who could get some looks in the first round. DeCastro, along with Martin and Luck, is officially in the draft.

LAST WEEK: 14 | PLAYER CARD

14Alshon Jeffery *AGE: 21DOB: 2/14/90HT: 6-4WT: 233POS: WRRec 49Yds 762Avg 15.6TD 8His production took a hit with South Carolina's turmoil at quarterback, but he had a good rep already. Imposing presence, a matchup nightmare. Phenomenal hands, decent burst, elite size. Speed is a bit of a question.

LAST WEEK: 15 | PLAYER CARD

15Landry Jones *AGE: 22DOB: 4/22/89HT: 6-4WT: 229POS: QBComp 355Att 562Pct 63.2Yds 4,463TD 29Int 15I still like the way he's battled in 2011, but it's fair to say his reputation outpaced his performance this season. Accuracy is still very good. Good size, strong arm but needs to improve footwork. Still a very good prospect.

LAST WEEK: 12 | PLAYER CARD

16Fletcher Cox *AGE: 21DOB: 12/30/90HT: 6-4WT: 295POS: DTTkl 56Sack 5.0Int 0An explosive, disruptive player who is always in the backfield causing havoc. Cox gains value as a guy who can go inside in a 4-3 or work at defensive end in a 3-4. He declared this week.

LAST WEEK: NR | PLAYER CARD

17Courtney UpshawAGE: 21DOB: 12/13/89HT: 6-2WT: 265POS: LBTkl 45Sack 7.5Int 1A riser so far this year, he is showing improved pass-rush skills and should convert to 3-4 OLB at the next level. Great leverage player who uses hands well and battles against the run. Fits the LaMarr Woodley comparison.

LAST WEEK: 18 | PLAYER CARD

18Brandon ThompsonAGE: 22DOB: 10/19/89HT: 6-2WT: 310POS: DTTkl 45Sack 2.5Int 0Scheme-versatile, Thompson might not get the sacks but manages to be a really disruptive force along the interior. Balances plugging running lanes with decent skills as a penetrator. Consistent season.

LAST WEEK: 16 | PLAYER CARD

19Alfonzo DennardAGE: 22DOB: 9/9/89HT: 5-10WT: 205POS: CBTkl 27Sack 0.0Int 0Plays taller than his 5-foot-10 frame with incredible leaping ability. Handles bigger receivers far better than the height implies. Has strong frame and great ball skills and is a big-time competitor.

LAST WEEK: 19 | PLAYER CARD

20Jerel Worthy *AGE: 21DOB: 4/28/90HT: 6-3WT: 310POS: DTTkl 30Sack 3.5Int 0Has played better after an inconsistent start but still can have up-and-down stretches. Disruptive DT in a class that's a little shallower, and that could benefit him. Has good size and is tough to move -- just needs consistency.

LAST WEEK: 21 | PLAYER CARD

21Zach BrownAGE: 22DOB: 10/23/89HT: 6-2WT: 230POS: LBTkl 105Sack 5.5Int 3An absolute flier, Brown isn't big, but he can get after the quarterback and back up and cover like a safety. Has a versatile skill set and can go outside in a 3-4 or be a good weakside in a 4-3.

LAST WEEK: 20 | PLAYER CARD

22Michael Floyd *AGE: 22DOB: 11/27/89HT: 6-3WT: 224POS: WRRec 100Yds 1,147Avg 11.5TD 9Multidimensional receiver is able to beat you short or deep using a big frame to beat smaller cornerbacks. Played at 227 pounds in 2010 but dropped a little weight this season and does appear a little quicker.

LAST WEEK: 22 | PLAYER CARD

23Vontaze Burfict *AGE: 21DOB: 9/24/90HT: 6-3WT: 250POS: LBTkl 69Sack 5.0Int 1He's officially in the draft. With little left to prove, his tape is stacked because he's started from day one. Has great instincts, makes plays sideline to sideline and is far more disciplined than he gets credit for. Might have too much tape at this point.

LAST WEEK: 17 | PLAYER CARD

24Dre Kirkpatrick *AGE: 22DOB: 10/26/89HT: 6-3WT: 192POS: CBTkl 25Sack 0Int 0Had a solid regular season, although his tape will get a close look because of productivity questions. But don't sweat it -- Kirkpatrick can play. His biggest advantage is his elite size for the position, and he doesn't give up much quickness for it.

LAST WEEK: 23 | PLAYER CARD

25Whitney Mercilus *AGE: 21DOB: 7/21/90HT: 6-4WT: 265POS: DETkl 57Sack 16.0Int 0He's athletic, explosive with good length and great hands. Quarterbacks lived in fear of him this season. The downside is it's really just one year of this explosive play, so the draft process and testing will be key.

LAST WEEK: NR | PLAYER CARD

big 12 qb's blow in the nfl. Go look at the history of them. 0 superbowls & playoff wins. And don't come back in here & say troy aikman. He only was at OU his freshman year before transfering to ucla. Luck will be so much better then rg3 just watch.

What other Big 12 QBs have accomplished in the NFL has absolutely nothing to do with RGIII. This Andrew Luck suckfest has to stop, guy hasn't played an NFL down yet everyone is so convinced he's a future hall-of-famer...

look at the cam suckfest going on, hes only won 6 games and people on here saying hes already better then vick, mcnabb & culpepper. The luck suckfest is deserved. And yes big 12 qb's accomplishments have everything to do with it. They are all stat wh0ores in college & can't do sh*t in the pros.
