The Stanford Cardinal had quite the season in 2011 and they will see many of their players have their names called at the 2012 NFL Draft. While there isn't too much question where quarterback Andrew Luck end up, offensive linemen David DeCastro and Jonathan Martin could go just about anywhere in the first round. Here is a look at the latest mock draft of those three Cardinal players, courtesy of SB Nation:
1. Indianapolis Colts, Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
There is absolutely no suspense around who the first pick in the draft will be, unless you're just getting out of a Turkish prison after the last 13 years. In that case, welcome back; need the number for my psychoanalyst? This pick is already creating considerable intrigue as speculation runs wild about what the Colts will do with Peyton Manning.
14. Dallas Cowboys, David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
Finally, some attitude and meanness to the Cowboys interior line. DeCastro should probably be a top ten pick; he is that good. Derrick Dockery will be a free agent after spending the better part of the season injured.
23. Detroit Lions, Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
Jeff Backus, 34, is a free agent. Detroit could stand to upgrade their offensive line as it is, and drafting Martin strengthens the outside, helping put Matthew Stafford one step closer to elite status.
