The 2012 NFL Draft is coming this April, and every football fan can hardly wait. With the 2011 offseason being irregular because of the lockout, people have been waiting for a normal offseason for awhile. This year, we will get to see free agency in March, the draft in April and normal starting times for Training Camp and mini camps.
However, it is only February, so now it's time for mock drafts. Whether it's 7-round mock draft predictions for specific teams or a full first round mock draft, the draft predictions are plentiful this time of year. People write one mock, and then the scouting combine comes and goes and they write another mock with changed opinions.
I am giving my first crack at a 7-round mock draft for the Chicago Bears this year. The Bears hired Phil Emery as their new GM to specifically help them with their draft selections, so he will get his first chance to show what he can do this April. Their needs are at WR, OL, CB and DE, and they hope to get them all filled with talented players in this offseason's draft and free agency.
Here is my predictions for all eight of the Chicago Bears 2012 NFL Draft picks.
