‘Hawks Select Ryan Tannehill in Matt’s Mock Draft 2.0

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Ryan Tannehill is predicted to be the No. 12 pick in the 2012 draft.

As the titles says, I chose the Seattle Seahawks to pick Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill with the No. 12 pick.

You can check out my earlier mock draft I did in Febuary here.


Each 12th Man Rising mock draft is featured in the DC Pro Sports ReportWalterFootball.comSports Jabberhailredskins.com and fftoolbox.com mock draft databases. Each site keeps track of a huge number mock drafts all over the web.

Here we go…



1. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Andrew Luck is going to be a Colt next season. I think Derek Jeter going to Red Sox is even more likely to happen than the Colts picking anyone else.

2 . Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor (projected trade w/ St. Louis)

Winner, winner, chicken dinner. The Browns win the RGIII sweepstakes. In a divison with Big Ben, Andy Dalton, and Joe Flacco, this opportunity is just too hard to resist. Hopefully it’s oath also giving up their other first-round pick.

3. Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Kalil’s performance at the Combine secured his spot as the best offensive tackle in the draft. Was there any debate to begin with?

4. Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma St. (projected trade with Cleveland)

The Rams were able to trade their pick, and get the player they wanted at No 4. Sam Bradford now has a receiver who can make big plays all over the field.

5. Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

This was a hard choice betweem Claiborne and Richardson. Defense is just a little more important right now for Greg Schiano and the fading Bucs.

6. Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

The Redskins get Peyton Manning, no need for a quarterback here. Mike Shanahan coached him at the Senior Bowl, and if he’s nearly 300 pounds, he can be a big threat.

7. Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

The Jaguars finished last year with one of the better defenses in the league, and that was without any real pass-rush attack. Although a little short, his speed can help cause commotion. The Jaguars aren’t the only team in love with him, either

8. Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

The Dolphins get Matt Flynn, no need for a quarterback here. Someone to protect him sounds like a good idea.

9. Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis

Poe was the all-star of the Combine. At 346 pounds, he ran a 4.98 40 and produced 44 bench reps. I’m sure he’s moved up on everyone’s mock draft.

10. Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Although a pass rusher is needed maybe a little bit more, the opportunity might me more worthwhile than defensive ends Whitney Mercilus or Nick Perry.

11. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Jamaal Charles is coming off a knee injury and if Richardson is available, I can’t see any reason why the Chiefs would pass this up. He shouldn’t have too much trouble succeeding right away in the AFC West.

12. Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

Alas, my Seahawks pick Ryan Tannehill. Maybe this is more of a hope then an educated guess. Hopefully if Ryan Tannehill doesn’t start, the competition will at least get Tavaris Jackson to play more consistently.

13. Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois

His performance at the Combine helped reinforce his ability to battle on the outside. He did lead the nation in sacks, by the way. The rising Cardinals can really use him to create a more intimidating defense in the NFC West.

14. Dre Kirpatrick, CB, Alabama

Watching Terence Newman last year wasn’t anything special. Kirkpatrick has the skills to keep tight coverage on even the best receivers. The Cowboy’s secondary is a top priority this draft.

15. Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College

Kuechly showed great potential in covering drills at the Combine, and his toughness at linebacker will fill a huge void for the Eagles.

16. Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama

He’s not too quick, but the Jets would be glad if he is available here. He is ferocious on defense and the Jets – who were 5th best in yards against last year – might start showing signs of being the all-around elite defense that coordinators dream about.

    Good Mock Draft – I would think Trent Richardson wold go sooner, but you never know.

  • Hawkman

    No problem picking Tannehill, But if they do that trade down and get some more picks . He won’t be ready at the next level for 2 to 3 years.

  • JacobThomas

    Well Redskins jumped over everybody to get right to select what most believe to be the pick where RG3 will be, and with the Jets locking up Sanchez, Miami going strong you Peyton, along with Arizona, and KC, its time to be decisive in our choice and sign free agent QB Matt Flynn, DE Mario Williams at 12:01am when free agency begins. Than after than we should be calling Minnesota to trade up to the 3 spot to select Justin Blackmon at WR! Giving up our first round this year and a 2nd rounder and or 3rd rounder next year seems fair for the OK State standout and 2 time Biletnikoff Award winner. We will have filled our needs at QB and DE our most glaring spots, and getting Blackmon will come in as the best athlete and a guy who will stretch the field along with Sydney Rice on the opposite side. These 3 pickups and possibly a middle round pick for a speedy LB or option QB will go a long way to compete with the Niners within our division and the the NFL for years to come. Lets get this going Carroll and Shneider!!

    Right On Jacob – I  completely agree . That is one of the best thought out plans I have seen . I hope The people that matter are listening!
