Editors of FanSided Get Together For A Mock Draft

The editors of each FanSided group played general manager for all of their respective teams in a mock draft. I got to play general manager for our Bolts, but I was not able to make any trades and had to sit around and wait for the 18th pick in the draft. I am pretty sure I would have tried to trade up to get Mark Barron. Here are your results:

1 Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck QB Stanford
2 Washington Redskins – Robert Griffin III QB Baylor
3 Minnesota Vikings – Matt Kalil OT USC
4 Cleveland Browns – Trent Richardson RB Alabama
5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Morris Claiborne CB LSU
6 St. Louis Rams Justin – Blackmon WR Oklahoma State
7 Jacksonville Jaguars – Quinton Coples DE North Carolina
8 Miami Dolphins – Ryan Tannehill QB Texas A&M
9 Carolina Panthers – Fletcher Cox DT Mississippi State
10 Buffalo Bills – Luke Kuechly MLB Boston College
11 Kansas City Chiefs – David DeCastro OG Stanford
12 Seattle Seahawks – Melvin Ingram OLB/DE South Carolina
13 Arizona Cardinals – Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame
14 Dallas Cowboys – Dontari Poe DT Memphis
15 Philadelphia Eagles – Michael Brockers DT LSU
16 New York Jets – Andre Branch DE Clemson
17 Cincinnati Bengals – Mark Barron S Alabama
18 San Diego Chargers – Dont’a Hightower ILB Alabama
19 Chicago Bears – Stephon Gilmore CB South Carolina
20 Tennessee Titans – Nick Perry DE USC
21 Cincinnati Bengals – Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama
22 Cleveland Browns – Kendall Wright WR Baylor
23 Detroit Lions – Peter Konz C Wisconsin
24 Pittsburgh Steelers – Cordy Glenn OG Georgia
25 Denver Broncos – Devon Still DT Penn State
26 Houston Texans – Whitney Mercilus DE Illinois
27 New England Patriots – Courtney Upshaw OLB Alabama
28 Green Bay Packers – Shea McClellin OLB Boise State
29 Baltimore Ravens – Jonathan Martin OT Stanford
30 San Francisco 49ers – Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin
31 New England Patriots – Riley Reiff OT Iowa
32 New York Giants – Coby Fleener TE Stanford

Nick Perry, Shea McClellin, Courtney Upshaw and Whitney Mercilus all still available and I went with a middle linebacker?!?!?! Dont’a Hightower is a beast and is more of a sure thing than any of those other players. Takeo Spikes is not getting any younger and Hightower is versatile enough to play outside and inside. He will get more opportunities on the field this year and get to learn under Takeo.  As I share in our roundtable later today, I like Hightower more than most should.

         @epadaon Did you guys ask the Oakland page guy who he would pick?  That way he could feel included.

    I think Jacksonville will pick Melvin Ingram, Seattle will pick Quinton Coples, Cincinnati will pick Dont’a Hightower and surprise, Chargers get Mark Barron! Hell I don’t know! I wish the Chargers had more first round picks!
