2012 NFL Mock Draft: Predicting the 1st Round, Free Agency Edition

Let me take another stab at this. In my mock draft last week, I indicated that the Cleveland Browns would trade up for the No. 2 pick and Robert Griffin III. While the Browns tried to acquire the pick, they just couldn't give up the bounty that the Washington Redskins were able to offer the St. Louis Rams.

Three first-round and one second-round pick. That is a joke, right?

Either way, this one trade has changed the entire landscape of the draft. Not because Griffin III is going to go No. 2 overall, that was a forgone conclusion in the first place. It changes the landscape because the Rams now hold the cards as to how the remainder of the first round is going to play out outside of the top five.

This is going to be my first mock draft that takes into account possible free-agent signings, which can begin to happen tomorrow.

It should be fun.
