The guy you want the Rams to draft makes Jeff Fisher angry. Everything makes Jeff Fisher angry.

Oh, how a year changes things.

Back in May of last year, I dropped a two-round mock. Despite my proclamation that every pick would bear out, I think it's fair to say that Jerel Worthy won't be the #2 overall pick. I'll have my 2013 mock out not too long after we close out the 2012 NFL Draft coverage, but here's my final mock for the first three rounds of this year's franchise-changing event.

No trades, no gimmicks, just general mock: who I think a team will pick + who they should pick + what players have value + media rumors. You know, a mock draft.

And one last note: this is a super serious exercise, you guys. You don't like who your team picks after the jump? I'm an imbecile. Your GM never picks a (insert position here) in the (insert ordinal number) round? I have no idea what I'm talking about. Remember, you can identify every pick in the first three rounds. I'm the idiot who doesn't understand you.

Round 1

1.) Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck: QB, Stanford

2.) Washington Redskins (via St. Louis Rams)- Robert Griffin III: QB, Baylor

2.9375 more rounds of mock after the jump.

3.) Minnesota Vikings - Matt Kalil: OT, USC

I think by the time they're on the clock, the chance to grab an OT of Kalil's caliber on the left side is just too hard to pass up.

4.) Cleveland Browns - Trent Richardson: RB, Alabama


5.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Mo Claiborne: CB, LSU

6.) Rams (via Redskins) - Fletcher Cox: DT, Mississippi St.

7.) Jacksonville Jaguars - Justin Blackmon: WR, Oklahoma St.

8.) Miami Dolphins - Ryan Tannehill: QB, Texas A&M

I would gladly pay $100 for Stephen Ross to take the mic after the pick, give the Rozay "ROSS!" and drop the mic.

9.) Carolina Panthers - Michael Floyd: WR, Notre Dame

Weapons for Cam Newton? Could be a scary team in 2012.

10.) Buffalo Bills - Riley Reiff: OT, Iowa

11.) Kansas City Chiefs - Luke Kuechly: ILB, Boston College

12.) Seattle Seahawks - Nick Perry: DE, USC

14.) Dallas Cowboys - Mark Barron: SS, Alabama

15.) Philadelphia Eagles - Melvin Ingram: DE/OLB, S. Carolina

16.) New York Jets - Courtney Upshaw: OLB, Alabama

I mean. This has to happen, right?

17.) Cincinnati Bengals (via Oakland Raiders) - David DeCastro: G, Stanford

18.) San Diego Chargers - Jonathan Martin: OT, Stanford

19.) Chicago Bears - Quinton Coples: DE, UNC

20.) Tennessee Titans - Dre Kirkpatrick: CB, Alabama

21.) Bengals - Stephen Hill: WR, Georgia Tech

Hill & AJ Green make Andy Dalton a happy man.

22.) Browns (via Atlanta Falcons) - Rueben Randle: WR, LSU

23.) Detroit Lions - Stephon Gilmore: CB, S. Carolina

24.) Pittsburgh Steelers - Jerel Worthy: DT, Michigan St.

Trent Williams insurance package.
