2012 NFL Draft: Andrew Luck, David DeCastro, Jonathan Martin, Coby Fleener Could All Be First Round Picks

There figure to be multiple Bay Area prospects who will be selected on Thursday in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Will all of them be Stanford Cardinal players?

Here are the four players most likely to be picked.

  • Quarterback Andrew Luck is going number one overall to the Indianapolis Colts. Everyone knows that.
  • Offensive guard David DeCastro is such an impressive run blocker and interior lineman that he figures to also be picked early, or at the very least before the first round ends.
  • It's a little bit more iffy for offensive tackle Jonathan Martin, particularly with two more well-rounded tackles in Matt Kalil and Riley Reiff out there.
  • Finally, tight end Coby Fleener is the best man at his position, but will he be picked the first day or push over to the next day.

Cal do have players with a slim chance of being picked early in linebacker Mychal Kendricks, offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz and wide receiver Marvin Jones, but they're more likely to be second day guys.
