Mock draft (ranked weighting)

Here's my mock draft for 2012 using my same weighted rating system from the major draft sights (Huddle Report, PFW, GBN, Draft Countdown). Sadly there's no Gosselin Top 100 this year, so we'll see how well these sites do.

Rnd. - Pick. - Pos. - Name - School
1 - 17 - DT - Michael Brockers - LSU
1 - 21 - CB - Dre Kirkpatrick - Alabama
2 - 53 - WR - Mohamed Sanu - Rutgers
3 - 83 - RB - Bernard Pierce - Temple
4 - 116 - FS - Brandon Hardin - Oregon State
5 - 156 - OG - Brandon Washington - Miami (Fla.)
5 - 166 - SS - Duke Ihenacho - San Jose State
5 - 167 - WR - Greg Childs - Arkansas
6 - 191 - OLB - Braylon Broughton - TCU

This has a slight edge to defense (5 vs 4 picks) and focuses on positions of depth (future need based on contracts and injury history) as well as areas of need. Brockers is a player who can help now but still needs time to be great. Kirkpartrick isn't a match-up nightmare but should do well under Zimmer. Sanu is the perfect compliment to Green. Pierce isn't sexy but has good skills. Hardin is an athletic freak who needs time (see: Mays, Taylor). Washington is another body to throw into the mix at RG. Ihenacho is a good player who will compete for a roster spot. Childs is a boom or bust pick, but is worth a 5th round investment. Broughton played DE at TCU but at 257lbs will make the transition to OLB in the NFL and certainly has the athleticism (4.55-40, 36" VJ and 4.30 shuttle).

I think we need a TE but there are enough that will go undrafted (and almost as good as what we'd use a 6th rounder on that it's not worth it).

Looking forward to tomorrow...
