Stampede Blue is covering the 2012 NFL Draft from Radio City Music Hall in New York City April 26th-28th.

11. Kansas City Chiefs - Arrowhead Pride
Dontari Poe | Defensive tackle | Memphis: After an incredible performance at the Combine, a lot of people fell in love with Poe and his immense athleticism. However, Poe had been falling on multiple draft boards as of late and rightfully so (the film doesn't lie). But if anyone can get the most out of the Underwear Olympics Champion Poe, it'll be Romeo Crennel.
12. Philadelphia Eagles (via Seattle Seahawks) - Bleeding Green Nation
Fletcher Cox | Defensive tackle | Mississippi State: Cox is a raw athlete and he can play on the inside or the outside. Furthermore, Juan Castillo now has a big body than can explode into the backfield with the best of them. Cox's skill set will be ideal for the Wide-9 setup.
13. Arizona Cardinals - Revenge Of The Birds
Michael Floyd | Wide receiver | Notre Dame: The Cardinals get another big weapon for their quarterback carousel to not utilize. I kid, but seriously: Larry Fitzgerald AND Michael Floyd? If Kolb can come into his own, this is an offense made for a dome.
14. St. Louis Rams (via Dallas Cowboys) - Turf Show Times
Michael Brockers | Defensive tackle | LSU: Brockers is highly valued as a 3T, but you can set him up on the outside and watch him go to work. Versatility is Brockers middle name and he will instantly upgrade this Rams defensive front, bounty free!
15. Seattle Seahawks (via Philadelphia Eagles) - Field Gulls
Bruce Irvin | Defensive end | West Virginia: Irvin comes out of nowhere and leap frogs a lot talent still left on the board. He contains undeniable pass rushing ability with the capability to fit the OLB role with ease. Overall, Irvin is one of the more sound pass rushers in this draft class, but his off-field problems were potentially enough to scare away most teams in the first. However, Pete Carroll is no stranger to taking risks.
