Rejoice! the NFL Draft has begun. Here’s how we predict it will all play out. Enjoy the Draft folks.

 

 

1. Indianapolis Colts
Andrew Luck
QB, Stanford
The colts will take no chances when selecting their new franchise QB. Luck will be their top pick and likely opening day starter. The Colts will likely have a deal worked out with Luck prior to making him the #1 overall selection. The Colts made it public that they will indeed select Luck with the top pick.

 

2. Washington Redskins

 

Robert Griffn III
QB, Baylor
Griffin has as high a ceiling as any prospect in this years’ draft, and some are saying he’ll have a greater impact than Cam Newton did a year ago. He’s a lock to got to the Redskins and become the first franchise QB the team has had in decades.

 

3Cleveland Browns

Trent Richardson
RB, Alabama
The Browns trade up to nab Richardson, who is the most complete RB prospect since Adrian Peterson, and he should have a significant impact as soon as he steps onto an NFL field. His ability to pass-block consistently, as well as catch passes out of the backfield will keep him the #1 RB in Cleveland for a long time.

 

4. Minnesota Vikings

 

Matt Kalil
OT, USC
The Vikings currently have one of the NFL’s worst offensive lines, but Kalil will give them a tremendous boost as he’ll become a franchise tackle in no time. The team is debating on taking LSU CB Morris Claiborne to upgrade their weak secondary, but in the end, I believe they’ll make the smart pick and take Kalil.

 

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

 

Morris Claiborne
CB, LSU
The Bucs have had one of the league’s worst pass-defenses last season, and with Ronde Barber in his last year(s) and Aquib Talib on his way to an NFL suspension, Claiborne provides them with the shutdown corner they’ve longed for.

 

6. St. Louis Rams

 

Justin Blackmon
WR, Oklahoma State
The Rams choose to upgrade their wide receiver group by taking Blackmon. After having one of the league’s worst WR corps, Blackmon will assume the #1 WR role on day 1, and give QB Sam Bradford his first legitimate WR threat.
