Top Prospects Available at Start of Day 2

Written by Gil Alcaraz IV on April 27, 2012

Thirty-two picks later and the second day of the 2012 NFL Draft is upon us. It was an exciting first day of the draft filled with trades and queues of picks that quickly piled up in the commissioner’s pocket.

Although there were several interesting selections, most of the picks made were the right ones as each team continued building towards a better 2012 season.

Now, the second day is finally ready to begin and there’s still plenty of talent still available. So let’s take a look at some of the top prospects still available on my big board and what they will bring to the lucky team that gets to call their name on draft day.

Cordy Glenn, Offensive Tackle, Georgia

After spending his first three seasons as a guard, Glenn moved over to the left tackle spot his senior year and proved that he’s (read more…)

Everyone Gets An F!

Report-card-F

 

Enough with the high-fives! Enough with the butting of heads! Every single pick is not going to be a slam dunk. On the other end of the spectrum, even the slam dunks aren’t slam dunks. In fact, sometimes a slam dunk is a layup. Other times the layup is a 3 point shot, or a half court prayer with 1 second left was traveling. At some point in that metaphor it got out of control, but you get the point.

 

This was a really strange year though, in that every pick was terrible. Look away if you’re hoping for unicorns and lollipops in regards to how your team did in the 1st round. You all suck. Everyone fails. Here’s exactly why every pick so far in the NFL Draft will 100% without a doubt be a giant JaMarcus Russell belly-flop.

Eric Stoner’s Final Rankings and Tiered Top 50

Written by Eric Stoner on April 26, 2012

Here are my final position rankings and a tiered top 50 overall.

I only did the top 5 for position rankings.  Quarterbacks are ranked to 10, and I’ve linked to the scouting reports I’ve completed on them.  I wish I could go beyond a Top 50/Top 5, but one man can only do so much.

Enjoy the 2012 draft, everyone.

A note: I did not evaluate the interior offensive line position in-depth this year.  As such, I have not included them in my rankings (besides David DeCastro).

Spencer and Engle Final Mock Draft of 2012

Written by Will Spencer on April 25, 2012

Hoping to get back to our championship form at The Huddle Report, Rob Engle and I put our heads together for our final mock draft of the season. After many, many scenario shifts, we decided on 32 picks that felt right…or at least as close to it as possible.

1. Indianapolis Colts — Andrew Luck – QB – Stanford

Not a lot to say here since everyone knows this is a done deal.

2. Washington Redskins — Robert Griffin III – QB – Baylor

At least we should be getting two right!

3. Minnesota Vikings — Matt Kalil – OT – USC

We don’t buy for a second that the Jets are going to trade up to 3 for Richardson. However, we do think the Vikings are dying to move out of the #3 spot. The best possible suitor would be Tampa Bay in a move for Richardson and Minnesota (read more…)

Burfict, Hosley failed drug tests at Combine

Written by Gil Alcaraz IV on April 25, 2012

Jayron Hosley

As if Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict needed more negative notes to add to his résumé as a potential undrafted NFL prospect.

According to Jay Glazer, NFL teams were informed this week that both Burfict and Virginia Tech cornerback Jayron Hosley tested positive for banned substances at February’s NFL Scouting Combine.

Considering that Burfict’s first-round value has plummeted all the way down to undrafted territory, this report only continues to worsen his chances of ever making it in the NFL. With numerous concerns, including his drive to get better and inability to control his temper on the field, a positive drug test could be what seals his fate as the biggest waste of potential in this year’s draft.

As for Hosley, the drug test isn’t as much of a deal breaker. It could however, take him down from a Day 2 prospect to a Day (read more…)
