Today will be a football report..

The Pro Bowl is likely to be ended. I agree with this, as the pro bowl is a joke (especially since it is after the season)

The draft is tonight. The top 6 are already pretty well known, although not necessarily in this order (Luck, Griffin III, Kalil, Richardson, Claiborne, Blackmon). I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Vikings (picking third) pick Claiborne, a shut-down corner back. I also thing Blackmon is a bust candidate (not big, not too fast). He could be a good #2 or #3 WR in the right place, but he isn’t going to be a star. He does have great hands. I think that both QB’s (Luck and Griffin) are absolutely going to become great QB’s. Griffin has a little more upside, but Luck might be a safer pick at this point. Scouts say that Richardson is the best RB prospect since Adrian Peterson, which would be a great pick at #4 for the Browns. The middle of the draft will be interesting, with a lot of defensive players looking to be drafted. Guys like Mark Barron,  Fletcher Cox, Quentin Couples, Dartae Poe, Michael Brockers, Melvin Ingram, Courtney Upshaw should be taken from #7-20..

Here is my first round Mock Draft (including trades):

#1- Andrew Luck, Indy

#2- Robert Griffin III, Washington

#3- Trent Richardson, Cleveland (trade)

#4- Matt Kalil, Minnesota (trade)

#5- Morris Claiborne, Tampa Bay

#8- Ryan Tannehill, Miami

#9- Michael Floyd, Carolina

#10- Stephon Gillmore, Buffalo

#11- Luke Keuchly, Kansas City

#12- Mark Barron, New York Jets (trade)

#13- Reilly Reiff, Arizona

#14-Dre Kirkpatrick, Dallas

#15- Melvin Ingram, Jacksonville (trade)

#16-  Courtney Upshaw, Seattle (trade)

#17- David DeCastro, Cincinatti

#18- Whitney Mercilus, San Diego

#19- Devon Still, Chicago

#20- Dontari Poe, Tennessee

#21- Stephen Hill, Cincy

#22- Kendall Wright, Cleveland

#23- Jonathan Martin, Detroit

#24- Dont’a Hightower, Pittsburgh

#25- Andre Branch, Denver

#26- Janoris Jenkins, Houston

#27- Peter Konz, New England

#28- David Wilson, Green Bay

#29- Cordy Glenn, Baltimore

#30- David Wilson, San Francisco

#31- Nick Perry- New England

#32- Harrison Smith, New York Giants

Trades: Cleveland trades pick #4 and a 4th round pick for the #3 pick (to Minnesota). Philadelphia trades pick #15 and a third round pick for pick #7 and a 6th round pick (to Jacksonville). New York Jets trade pick #16, a fifth round pick and a 6th round pick for pick #12 (to Seattle)
