Posted our first 2012 NFL mock draft last week but it only went through pick No. 18. Got some good feedback on that draft and came back strong today with picks all the way through No. 30.
Only two teams left to figure out in the first round, and those are your Super Bowl teams — New York Giants and New England Patriots. Speaking of that game, I just wanted to thank the football gods for not giving us the Harbaugh Bowl. And it should be a good game, so don’t forget to place your prop bets for the Super Bowl (my favorite last year: Christina Aguilera’s over/under on the National Anthem. Of course she blew it by screwing up the lyrics!).
Made a few changes with a little more research for this version of the mock draft. Check it out below and leave your comments so that our next version can be even better.
