Some of us have been studying 2012 NFL mock drafts longer than others.
When your team is still playing, you're spared the task of studying scouting reports. You don't have to scour YouTube looking for video of a guy who might be a good pick for your team in the third round. You have an actual game to think about.
With that said, I'd like to welcome fans of the New England Patriots and New York Giants. Now that the Super Bowl is over they can join the rest of us in projecting the 2012 NFL draft.
Most fans turn their attention to NFL mock drafts when their team is knocked out of the playoffs or whenever it becomes clear their team's not making the playoffs.
However, for some people mock drafts are a year-round activity. These draft gurus already have published mock drafts.
These mock drafts are likely to change, especially after the NFL Scouting Combine, which begins Feb. 22.
But let's rank their work so far.
