2012 NFL Mock Draft: Full First-Round Breakdown, Factoring Trades

In my latest 2012 NFL mock draft, I decided to do something out of my comfort zone. Typically, I avoid projecting trades into my mock draft. However, this draft is very unique, as one spot seems like a guaranteed trade. In this mock, the St. Louis Rams trade the No. 2 pick to the Miami Dolphins for the Nos. 8 and 40 picks as well as a 2013 first-round pick.

Matt Barkley's decision to return to USC is what prompted this trade scenario. I don't see a situation where somebody doesn't move up to select Baylor's Robert Griffin III. The difference between the No. 2 and No. 3 ranked quarterbacks is very big.

Please keep in mind that this mock was developed prior to the Week 17 games, so the draft order might be a little off.
