The following story is related to Doug & Wolf’s Mock
Draft, presented by Bud Light. The draft took place
Wednesday at Talking Stick Resort as a precursor to
Thursday’s actual 2012 NFL Draft.

There were no surprises at the top of the Doug & Wolf’s Mock
Draft
as the Indianapolis Colts (represented by GM
Heber Reed) and Washington Redskins (by Stephan Francois)
took Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III with the top two
selections.

Minnesota Vikings general manager Dominic Fratus selected
highly-touted cornerback Morris Claiborne out of LSU.
Claiborne was a projected top-five pick, but not many
experts had him going third overall.

The fourth and fifth picks were two big time playmakers in
college. The Cleveland Browns (represented by Bing Brown)
nabbed running back Trent Richardson out of Alabama and
Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon was taken by the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their GM Jay Johnston.

Four offensive impact players get taken off the board with
the top corner in the draft being the other selection in
the top five.
