2012 Spartan Nation NFL Mock Draft

Hondo S. Carpenter

Five of my friends who are NFL scouts (or personnel/MGMT people) agreed to give me their mock drafts. They represent five different teams. This is their MOCK DRAFTS, not mine. Two years ago we were the ONLY media MOCK draft that had Tim Tebow being picked in the first round and Jimmy Clausen NOT.Â
I will keep each of their identities confidential as you can imagine that their respective teams wouldn’t appreciate their participation in this endeavor. All I asked from them was that they give me their MOCK DRAFT. I weighed all four lists and put them in the appropriate order. I didn’t have them make their team’s pick (that is why a fifth person is added) and I didn’t add comments as that may reveal their identity. 

This list is not the order that I think they will be drafted, it is simply five men who get paid to do this for a living and who they think. We did not let them add where or when they thought trades would occur. I weighed each of their picks and the list is based upon their consensus and drafts. Here it is:

1.     Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck Stanford

2.     Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III Baylor
