NFL Draft 2012: Best available players after Round 1

By Dane Brugler | NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst
With the 2012 NFL Draft first round over and 32 picks in the books, there is still plenty of talent remaining on the draft board

NFLDraftScout.com's Top-20 still available:

1. OT Cordy Glenn, Georgia: Four-year SEC starter dominated early in career at guard before switching outside to tackle as senior
2. DE Courtney Upshaw, Alabama: DE/LB tweener with only average size (6-2, 272) and speed (4.76) but smart, decisive angles, and very tough
3. OT Jonathan Martin, Stanford: Athletic, intelligent with good size (6-5, 312), but too finesse & lacks brute strength (20 reps of 225 lbs)
4. TE Coby Fleener, Stanford: King-sized target with an impressive speed/strength combo (4.51, 27 reps); led Stanford w/10 touchdown grabs
5. DT Jerel Worthy, Michigan State: Short and squatty, but explosive; ability to split gaps will intrigue 3-4 and 4-3 teams
6. DT Devon Still, Penn State: Stout, wide frame (6-5,303) with impressive quickness and mobility, but streaky motor and passion; 17.0 tackles for loss in 2011
7. DE Andre Branch, Clemson: Lanky pass rusher with excellent lateral agility & straight-line speed; should excel as a 3-4 rush LB
8. WR Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech: Unpolished and needs work, but extremely athletic specimen with great speed/size combo (4.36)
9. WR Rueben Randle, LSU: Size, speed, soft hands combination and willingness to block that every club is looking for at split end
10. DT Kendall Reyes, Connecticut: Characterized as a high-effort but limited, ascent up boards began with an impressive Senior Bowl
11. C Peter Konz, Wisconsin: Versatile, balanced station-to-station blocker (C/G), effective puller with raw power; durability issues
12. OT Mike Adams, Ohio State: Ideal left tackle frame (6-7, 323) with engulfing wingspan (82.5") but heavy feet and suspect strength/passion
13. CB Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama: As natural cover corner as there is in this draft; first round talent but off-field concerns scare teams
14. DE Vinny Curry, Marshall: Elite career production (49.0 tackles for loss, 26.5 sacks, 10 forced fumbles) with quick footwork & strong limbs; not quick-twitch
15. OT Bobby Massie, Mississippi: Not yet sum of parts, but 3-year starting right tackle has excellent size, strength and athleticism to play early
16. G Amini Silatolu, Midwestern State: Small-school left tackle with nasty, tough demeanor & power but streaky technique
17. OLB Zach Brown, North Carolina: Athletic phenom best suited to WLB position in 4-3, where speed, agility suited to a chase LB in NFL
18. RB Lamar Miller, Miami (Fla.): Smooth, one-cut runner with exceptional speed/burst, some durability concerns - poor man's Jamal Charles
19. OLB Lavonte David, Nebraska: Tackling machine (285 career tackles) w/athleticism, football IQ and finishing ability but a tick undersized (6-1, 233)
20. TE Dwayne Allen, Clemson: Not physical mismatch en vogue, but soft hands, route-running, blocking ability equals the top traditional TE
