Draft scenarios: Why we are supporting any other team than Cleveland to move to pick 2


The first two picks in the 2012 NFL draft are Andrew Luck and RG3. Pretty much no one disputes that.The only thing that remains is who is going to pick RG3 at pick 2? And what on Earth does this have to do with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?!

The St. Louis Rams are going to trade back with either Cleveland, Washington, Miami, Seattle, Buffalo or Arizona. This will affect Tampa because two of St. Louis' needs are either a Cornerback or a Wide Receiver. If they trade back with Cleveland, they will address either of these needs. But considering the depth of Wide Receiver's in this class, they will probably look at filling the Cornerback hole first, meaning no Morris Claiborne.

Probable draft selections: (I feel like Mel Kiper... only I'm not as arrogant as he is)

1. Indianapolis - Andrew Luck - QB

2. Cleveland - Robert Griffin III - QB

3. Minnesota - Matt Kalil - OT

4. St. Louis - Morris Claiborne - CB

Leaving us with a possibly injured Trent Richardson, who has had his draft stock plummet after not running at either the Combine or the 'Bama pro day, or Justin Blackmon, who plays Wide Receiver, a far less depleted position than Linebacker or Corner Back. (I'm not including Luke Kuechly, because he is projected at about 15-20, and I don't want to reach anywhere near that much.)

What we're hoping for:

St. Louis to trade back with any other team in the NFL. If St. Louis trade out of the top 5, we're left with a pretty good scenario. I know what you're thinking "How does this benefit us? Why can't Cleveland at 4 just draft Claiborne?" If you remember back to 2010, yes the same year we drafted two consecutive probable draft busts at Defensive Tackle, Cleveland picked Joe Haden at Cornerback, and he has been far from a disappointment, and probably a very good number 1 corner. Leaving me to believe, they will look to fill the gaping hole that Mohamed Massaquoi and the rest of those horrible Wide Receiver's Cleveland possesses, by drafting Justin Blackmon.

1. Indianapolis - Andrew Luck - QB

2. Any team other than Cleveland - Robert Griffin III - QB

3. Minnesota - Matt Kalil - OT

4. Cleveland - Justin Blackmon - WR

5. Tampa Bay - Morris Claiborne - CB

What do you think?

Also, if you are going to re-ignite the whole Trent Richardson vs. Morris Claiborne debate again, please don't do it on this thread.
