2012 NFL Mock Draft: Andrew Luck Leads Pack

I'm exhausted from the 2011 NFL Draft, and several months of writing about mock drafts has shown me firsthand that guessing who might get taken in April is a pretty tough exercise even in January, after the college football season is over. Nonetheless, it's fun to speculate, so if you want to, you can take a look at Walter Football's 2012 mock draft.

Unsurprisingly, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, who topped most NFL mock drafts this year before his announcement that he would stay in school, is the top overall pick. Two USC products, quarterback Matt Barkley and tackle Matt Kalil, go at No. 2 and No. 3.

This mock - and obviously, projecting which players will go to which teams is incredibly problematic at this point, since we have no idea what order they'll be picking in - has the Steelers taking Nebraska defensive end Jared Crick. Already, that pick seems very unlikely, since the Steelers took DE Cameron Heyward in the first round of the draft on Thursday. So we can see that accuracy from a 2012 mock draft is way too much to expect at this point. If nothing else, though, this list is worth checking out, as these are players we'll all be watching closely in the 2011 college football season.
