I recently had the idea to see what the draft would look like if the first-round order was flipped.
In possibly the first ‘mock draft’ without Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III at No. 1, I go from bottom to top in this draft:
Pick 1: New York Giants: Matt Kalil, OT, USC
With two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning at the helm, the Giants have no need for Andrew Luck. Instead, they select Kalil to fill a need.
Pick 2: New England Patriots: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
The Patriots don’t exactly have to spend a pick on Andrew Luck, so the team selects Richardson and adds another element to their dynamic offense.
