2012 NFL Draft: Seven Round Mock Draft Has Washington Filling Handful Of Needs

The 2012 NFL Draft starts on Thursday night, and while the first few selections won't hold a lot of drama for Redskins fans, they do have a handful of picks in the later rounds that could help the team drastically. Chad Reuter of the NFL Network has come out with a seven round complete mock for the upcoming draft, and while the picks aren't likely to be very accurate all the way throughout, it could help give an idea of what some teams are thinking. Here are his first few selections.

The first pick should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. He has Robert Griffin III going No. 2 overall, just like everybody else with an Internet connection. With the Colts confirming that they will take Andrew Luck earlier this week, that makes this pick a certainty. The Redskins traded their second round pick in this draft for the ability to move up to No. 2, so they don't have any picks in that round.

The Redskins' next pick is at No. 69 overall in the third round, and he has them taking Oklahoma tackle Donald Stephenson. He is a popular choice for this position because he fills a need and the Redskins have had him in for a visit, but he might be a reach this high.

The Redskins have two picks in the fourth round, and he has them taking Washington running back Chris Polk and Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden with those picks. Running back isn't necessarily a position of need, but Polk could help the young guys if Tim hightower does not return. Corner is a much bigger need.
