Pac-12 strong in initial mock NFL draft

5/4/2012

ESPN.com draft guru Todd McShay takes on the thankless task of doing a 2013 mock NFL draft, and the Pac-12 is well-representedInsider with seven picks in the first round.

In fact, McShay expects the conference to again produce the No. 1 overall pick. Only it's not who you think.

As for the order of NFL teams picking here: "The order was derived by reversing the postdraft power rankings of Scouts Inc.'s Matt Williamson, and the players are those who jump to mind as possible standouts during the 2012 college season."

Here are the Pac-12 players in his first round.

1. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah: Indianapolis

4. Robert Woods, WR, USC: Cleveland

6. Matt Barkley, QB, USC: Oakland

7. Keenan Allen, WR, California: St. Louis

20. T.J. McDonald, S, USC: Houston

31. Shayne Skov, LB, Stanford: New York Giants

32. Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State: New England Patriots
