Thanks for checking out my 2012 AFC West NFL mock drafts on sportsblog.com. I have written a mock draft for each AFC West team. To be honest my Denver Bronco’s mock was written for that particular team blog earlier but I have updated it a bit. The Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders 2012 mock drafts were written today.. These AFC West mock drafts do not cover the compensatory picks that will be awarded in March.
Oakland Raiders 2012 NFL Mock Draft
Ok the Oakland Raiders don’t have much to work with after trading away some picks and using one in last year’s NFL Supplemental Draft. The Raiders don’t pick until round five of the 2012 NFL draft barring more trades. In my opinion the 2012 draft needs of the Raiders are offensive linemen and defensive backs.
Round 5- Will Blackwell G-C/LSU
If Blackwell falls to the Raiders in the fifth round the team will probably snatch him up. Blackwell brings that coveted versatility to the Oakland Raiders offensive line and could be a starter after a year in the weight room.
Round 6- Omar Bolden CB/Arizona State
Bolden is rehabbing a knee injury or would go much higher. This is a classic low risk and high reward pick for the Raiders in this 2012 NFL mock draft. If Bolden recovers he could well be a nickel or even starting NFL defensive back.
Denver Broncos 2012 NFL Mock Draft
Round 1- Fletcher Cox DT- Mississippi State
Fletcher Cox the defensive tackle out of Mississippi State should be the pick here. Expect the Broncos to jump on the best defensive tackle on the board. Cox can get penetration and also is a good kick blocker on special teams. With John Fox and Jack Del Rio switching to the 4-3 defense, the Broncos need some defensive linemen in this draft.
Round 2- David Wilson RB-Virginia Tech
David Wilson the running back from Virginia Tech is my second round pick in the 2012 Denver Broncos mock draft.Wilson is only a one year starter but showed flashes of a ability. The Broncos need some young legs in the offensive backfield and Wilson fits the bill here.
Round 3 Michael Brewster- C- Ohio State
Michael Brewster the big center out of Ohio State makes sense here for the Denver Broncos. You can never have enough quality offensive linemen and Brewster could be a sleeper.
Round 4- Chris Givens WR-Wake Forest
Chris Givens the wide receiver out o fWak eForest may fall to here due to past injury concerns. Givens is a former running back and track star from his high school years and is talented enough to help the Broncos in 2012. If Eddie Royal is allowed to leave as a free agent then Denver will go for a wide receiver even higher than here.
Round 5- Donte Paige-Moss DE- UNC
Donte Paige-Moss the troubled defensive end out of UNC is my pick here in the Denver Broncos 2012 mock draft. Moss has talent but has injury and off the field concerns but is worth a shot here.
Round Five Pick from Rams for Brandon Lloyd- ASA Jackson CB- Cal Polly
Jackson is a hitter from the cornerback position and could be a good special teams addition for the Broncos.
Round 6 Traded
Pick traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for Joe Mayes.
Round 7 David Wylie WR- Fresno State
Devon Wylie the wideout from Fresno State is a Wes Welker type that everyone wants on their roster. Wylie is worth a shot here with the last Denver Broncos pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
2012 Kansas City Chiefs Mock Draft
Round Pick 1- Riley Reiff OT-Iowa
If Reiff falls here he will be the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. Riley Reiff has the height to put on a little more weight and the skill set to be a starter for the next 10 years.
Round Two Pick- Reuben Randle WR- LSU
The Chiefs need to add one more playmaker to the wide receiver unit and Randle will be a good fit here.
Round Three Pick- Michael Egnew TE-Missouri
Egnew is a tall athletic tight end who can become a go to weapon for the Chiefs. Remember the Chiefs want to be the Patriots when they grow up and New England loves tight ends.
Round Four Pick-DeQuan Menzie CB- Alabama
Menzie got lost in the shuffle of all the big names on the Alabama defense but he was a key player. Menzie is very football smart and could be a nickel back from day one for the Chiefs.
Round Five Pick-Eric Paige WR- Toledo
Paige is a little small but can catch the ball and also make plays as a returner if needed. Paige is the type of small college player who could make it big in the NFL.
Round Six Pick-Davin Meggett RB- Maryland
The Chiefs need running back depth and Meggett is small but very strong. The son of former NFL star David Meggett can help the Chiefs right away.
Round Seven Pick- Landon Walker OT- Clemson
Walker is worth a shot here to see if the Chiefs can develop him into a good NFL offensive lineman.
2012 San Diego Chargers Mock Draft
Round 1- Michael Floyd- WR Notre Dame
Michael Floyd has the height that Norv Turner likes at 6.ft 3 inches tall and can still run fast. Even if the Chargers resign Vincent Jackson they will be in the market for another wide receiver. It is possible the Chargers go offensive line here if not wide receiver.
Round Two Pick- Kelechi Osemele OG- Iowa State
Osemele has great size and could possibly play tackle on the NFL level. The Chargers have indicated that the offensive line is a priority in the offseason.
Round Three Pick-Chris Polk RB- Washington
Polk is very physical and shows some ability as a receiver out of the backfield as well. The Chargers may revamp the running back position a little and Polk would be a nice addition.
Round Four Pick-Brandon Taylor S- LSU
Taylorhas lots of starting experience in a great football conference and is a hard nose hitter from the safety position.
Round Five Pick-Travis Lewis OLB-Oklahoma
Lewis is a good player who may slip after a not so great season after a toe injury. If Lewis recovers this will be a steal for the Chargers.
Round Six Pick- David Molk C-Michigan
Molk is very strong and has a decent shot at making the team as a backup offensive lineman while he learns the NFL game.
Round Seven Pick-Marc Tyler RB-USC
Injury concerns and lack of a great deal of playing time will drop Tyler. However the Chargers can use him as a change of pace back and he may find his niche there.
