NFL Mock Drafts: Who is going where?

(ICON SMI)

With each team looking to decide what to do with their first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the NFL.com has put together a neat page that shows predictions of each analyst. 

I've taken the liberty of sorting out these picks by numbers, so you can see what tehey are hearing from sources as to who the Bucs and Panthers may take, as they are the only NFC South teams with first round picks. 

FIFTH PICK

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

Morris Claiborne, CB LSU  (8)

Trent Richardson, RB Alabama (2)

Dontari Poe, DT Memphis (1)

Analysis: Claiborne is obviously the pick here and make sense as Aqib Talib is having his issues and Ronde Barber is pushing 40. This stud CB could be a big-time player and does fill a need, especially in this pass-happy league. Richardson could be the pick if the CB is off the board. The Bucs WILL NOT pick Dontari Poe, from what I'm hearing. 

NINTH PICK

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Dontari Poe, DT Memphis 5

Quinton Coples, DE North Carolina 3

Melvin Ingram, DE South Carolina

Devon Still, DT Penn State

Morris Claiborne, CB LSU

Analysis: Do you see the trend here? All but one go with a DL. Makes sense, as the team's defense has to improve to go with the talented offense, led by Cam Newton. I would expect it to be Coples, the home-state kid from UNC. Any of these players would be good gets at No. 9, but may be a bit of a reach for Still and Ingram. 

 

What do you think? Who would you predict in being picked?
