SB Nation's First 2012 NFL Mock Draft

The mothership released its first mock draft and there's lots of stuff to talk about:

↵

Not surprisingly, Andrew Luck is the top overall pick. Don't think much is going to change on that front, unless the Colts decide they want to stick with Peyton and it's untenable to draft a QB with him on board.

↵

Three receivers in the top 7 picks? And only two QBs? That seems a bit off from what all the pundits are talking about the strength of this draft. I'm not saying the analysis isn't solid, it'll just be funny if things break like this and RGIII and Barkley take some time to get drafted.

↵

Five receivers taken in the first round, but no Jeff Fuller. No Aggies, period, in fact. It's a long fall for the talented A&M receiver, but going in the second or third rounds might put him on a better team than he could have hoped for. Gotta find some silver lining.

When's the last time there was a first round didn't feature a single player from either Texas or Texas A&M. For that matter, when was the last time there were two Baylor players in the first round? To answer my own question, twice before have two Bears been drafted in the first round: 1957 and 2011. Only in '57 were both Texas and A&M shut out while Baylor thrived. However, Jack Pardee was chosen with the first pick in the second round that year, No. 14 overall.

The Texans are supposed to draft a nose tackle, because everyone has been saying for years that's what they need. Hasn't happened yet, so I'll need more to go on than that. But, I'm not sure anyone else in the first round make sense for them right now. So, I won't dispute it.
