Perhaps no draft in recent memory will see as much potential posturing among the top 5 picks as St Louis (#2) and Minnesota (#3) are sure to have their phone lines busy with multiple teams looking to trade up to land Robert Griffin III (some draft experts I’ve seen actually have him ranked ahead of Andrew Luck – but they are in the minority).
Today we present a first round Mock draft from NFLFutures.com that was updated within the last few hours and has Washington’s Mike Shanahan trading up to the #2 spot to land RG3. Rex Grossman is a free agent and John Beck is not a starting caliber QB which makes this a smart move in our mind provided they don’t have to mortgage the farm.
This draft is loaded at the WR position with as many as five potential first rounders led by Okie State’s Justin Blackmon (back to back Biletnikoff award winner). Minnesota and St Louis are both in the market for WR upgrades so the Browns would be elated if he slips to #4 as they were led in receiving by rookie Greg Little aka Butterfingers. Baylor WR Kendall Wright is just 5-10 but his playmaking ability has him flying up many draft charts (#10 to Buffalo seems a bit high to us but he’s solidified himself as a first rounder).
