Mel Kiper's First NFL 2012 Mock Draft Has the Redskins Selecting...

Via ESPN....

#6: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

While the "Honey Badger," Tyrann Mathieu, piled up the headlines at LSU, the best cornerback on the team was quietly dominant all season. Currently a top-five player on my Big Board, Claiborne is the top cornerback in the draft. He has good length at 6-foot-1 and is a physical player at more than 180 pounds. The Redskins will need help at corner headed into 2012, particularly in a division in which the Giants, Cowboys and Eagles have elite talent at wide receiver. While not quite the athlete, Claiborne is actually a better pure cover corner than Patrick Peterson, the No. 5 overall pick from last year.

Off the board in order was: Luck (IND), Blackmon (STL), Kalil (MIN), RG3 (CLE), T. Richardson (TB).

Kiper had Alshon Jeffery going to the 49ers with the 31st pick.
