If your Twitter timeline is anything like mine youre starting to see links for 2013 mock drafts. And as tempting as it may be to look into the future, take a look at this 2012 mock draft from just about a year ago. Im not identifying who did this because thats not the point; just about all of them are this far off.Click on 2013 mocks if you must, but dont say you werent warned that they are a colossal waste of time.1. Seattle Seahawks Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford: Yes, he was the top overall pick but he went to the Colts (who are drafting 31st in this mock)2. Washington Redskins Matt Barkley, QB, USC: The Redskins did draft second but via trade. Barkley stayed in school and Washington took Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, who does not appear anywhere in this mock.3. Carolina Panthers Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina: Jeffrey was drafted in the second round, 45 overall.4. Cincinnati Bengals Cliff Harris, CBKRPR, Oregon: Harris was dismissed from the Oregon team and was not drafted.5. Denver Broncos Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State: Drafted in the second round, 51 overall.6. Arizona Cardinals Ryan Lindley, QB, San Diego State: Writer says that hell be taken by Arizona here to succeed Donovan McNabb. He was drafted by the Cardinals but in the sixth round, 185 overall.7. Oakland Raiders DAndre Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama: Kirkpatrick went 17th overall to the Bengals.8. Minnesota Vikings Quinton Coples, DEDT, North Carolina: Was taken 16th overall by the Jets.9. Jacksonville Jaguars Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame: Went 13th overall to the Cardinals.10. Buffalo Bills Matt Kalil, OT, USC: Was taken by the Vikings fourth overall.We could go on in detail but you get the idea. A couple of defensive tackles, Jared Crick of Nebraska and Billy Winn of Boise State were projected in the top 15 here but they went in the fourth and sixth rounds, respectively. Matt Reynolds (projected at 14) and Chase Minnifield (18) were not drafted at all.
