Possible, Suprising 2012 Mock Draft

 

RD 1- Robert Lester, Alabama, S - Clark is still solid at FS but not spectacular. Lester is a ball hawking safety in the mold of Ed Reed. Love to see this guy paired with Troy.

RD 2- 1st Suprise(QB) - Ryan Tannehill, Texas A&M, QB - Yes a QB in the second round. we need to plan for the future. Batch is 37 and Leftwitch is 32 and injured. Dixon is gone after this year. Why not select a QB now that we can groom. Batch can still last another year and teach tannehill. You heard it here first: Ben, Batch and Tannehill are going to be our 2012 QBs.

RD 3- Xavier Nixon, Florida, OT/OG - Position flexibility and from Florida so he'll get up to speed with the O-line real fast seeing as Pouncey, Gilbert and Starks are all from Florida as well.

RD 4- Lucas Nix, Pitt, OG/OT - Another player with position flexibility. I find he's actually much better than a fourth round talent but injuries cause him to slide. Worth the risk. 2012 O-Line = Starks, Nixon, Pouncey, Nix, Gilbert

RD 5- 2nd surprise(Late round NT) -T.J.Barnes, Georgia Tech., NT - I really don't see the point in spending a top pick on a nose tackle. The NT in the lebeau system is there to plug holes plain and simple. Hampton has started since day one and it's not because he graduated from Med School. Not to mention T.J. is 6'7" 330lbs. Try geting over or around that beast.

RD 6 - Adrien Cole, Louisiana Tech, ILB - I really believe that by next year our starting ILBs will be Timmons and Sly. Farrior will most likely retire. Cole and Foote as the backups are a great safety net.

RD 7 - 3rd surprise(FB) Joe Suhey, Penn. state, FB - With B.A. moving on from coaching to mow lawns, the Steelers finally get a true FB. His dad was a great FB for the Bears, so it's in the blood.
