2012 NFL Mock Draft: Linemen, corners dominate first round

1 of 2

Well the time has come again for the end of the NFL season and the beginning of the offseason.  It’s also the start of our 2012 NFL Mock Draft here at Who Dat Dish.

The usual top ten picks in my 2012 NFL Mock Draft are pretty close with most mock drafts since it’s a given with quarterback Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III going within the top five picks.

After watching the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine game, I’ve changed a few things compared to others.  I think that players like defensive end Quinton Coples, who’s been compared to Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers, solved any questions about his drive at the Senior Bowl.
