2012 NFL Mock Draft: 3rd Round 10/31

Mock Drafts NFL Draft

Round 1, Picks 17-32, Round 2, Round 3, Round 4, Draft Blog, NFL Draft Page

65. Miami Dolphins- OT Nate Potter, Boise State

The Dolphins invested in the quarterback, now they need to protect him.

66. Indianapolis Colts- DE Brandon Lindsey, Pittsburgh

The Colts need to find some DE help as Mathis and Freeney are both getting older (and Mathis is a free agent). Lindsey gives them a guy, who should immediately contribute on passing downs.

67. Denver Broncos- DT Sylvester Williams, UNC

The Broncos need to get some bodies in the interior, or their line will just never be right.

68. St. Louis Rams- OLB Don’ta Hightower, Alabama-

The Rams get a steal here in Hightower, who could project as a top 40 pick. He is a bit of a tweener, but I think he’d be a solid for for them at WLB.

69. Seattle Seahawks- WR Marvin McNutt, Iowa-

The Seahawks could use another weapon at WR, and McNutt is a guy with a lot of potential.

70. Jacksonville Jaguars- CB Xavier Rhodes, FSU

The Jags could use another big play corner, to round out their defense.

71.  Arizona Cardinals- DE Mercilus Whitney, Illinois

The Cards need to find more of pass rush this offseason and Whitney has some nice potential as a rush linebacker.

72. Minnesota Vikings- FS Markell Martin, Oklahoma State

The Vikings need to add a young free safety to improve their secondary.

73. Washington Redskins- C Michael Brewster, Ohio State

The Redskins offensive line is just a mess right now. Brewster is a guy who could potentially start from day one.

74. Cleveland Browns- OLB Ronnell Lewis, Oklahoma

The Browns outside linebacker have just been bad this season. And while adding Brown was a start, this would be a great 2nd addition here.

75. Chicago Bears (via Carolina)– DE Vinny Curry, Marshall

The Bears could use a complement to Peppers in getting after the QB, and Curry is a nice value for this pick.

76. Kansas City Chiefs- TE Orson Charles, Georgia

The Chiefs could use an additional TE in their passing game.

77. Tennessee Titans- WR Kendall Wright, Baylor

The Titans could use another receiver as they look to add weapons for when Jake Locker is ready to take over.

78. Chicago Bears- S T.J. McDonald, USC

The Bears need a lot of secondary help, and McDonald is a player with a lot of upside.

79. Atlanta Flacons- RB Chris Polk, Washington

The Falcons can’t rely on Michael Turner forever, and Rodgers is more of a change of pace back.

80. Dallas Cowboys- FS Robert Lester, Alabama

The Cowboys secondary is a serious issue and Lester would be a nice upgrade.

81. Cincinnati Bengals- CB Coryell Judie, Texas A&M

The Bengals could use another quality corner making this a good pick for them.

82. New York Giants- SS Mark Barron, Alabama

The Giants could look for a young safety to replace Rolle with.

83. New York Jets- QB Kirk Cousins, Michigan State

The Jets need to think about adding a young QB in case Sanchez isn’t the long term answer.

84. Philadelphia Eagles-TE Coby Fleener, Stanford

The Eagles could look to add a young TE to replace Celek.

85. Buffalo Bills- OT Jeff Allen, Illinois 

The Bills have done well this year with protecting Fitzpatrick, but they could use some depth here.

86. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- CB Cliff Harris, Oregon

Ronde Barber can’t play forever, meaning the Bucs need to find his replacement.

87. Houston Texans- SS Tony Dye, UCLA

The Texans need to keep building up that defense, if they want to be an annual playoff contender.

88. San Diego Chargers- DE Cam Johnson, UVA

The Chargers could use another solid DE, which is exactly what Johnson is.

89. Detroit Lions- CB Shaun Prater, Iowa

The Lions need a lot of help in the secondary, and Prater is a nice fit here.

90. San Francisco 49ers- OT Matt McCants, UAB

91. Baltimore Ravens- RB David Wilson, Virginia Tech

92. New Orleans- WR Rueban Randle, LSU

93. New England Patriots- DE Alex Okafor, Texas

94.  Pittsburgh Steelers- RB Doug Martin, Boise State

95. Green Bay Packers- CB Brandon Boykin, Georgia
