2012 NFL Mock Draft 1st-Round Update: Surprise Trade-Up for Tannehill?

The hat is appropriate for where Tannehill may be headed.

With each passing week, more and more information pours in with regard to 2012 NFL draft projections. 

Evaluations are refined with more film study, metrics from the combine and pro days are blended with on-field performance and hearsay about character and medical concerns solidifies into credible information as interviews are conducted.

Since my previous first-round commentary and mock, one and two weeks ago respectively, I have made some tweaks to how I see the evening and night of April 26 unfolding.

I have had the Washington Redskins selecting Robert Griffin III second overall throughout the process, so the recent announcement of its accord with the St. Louis Rams does not shake things up at the top for me.

But with any kind of a succession prediction, each alteration produces a ripple effect that goes on to create a substantially different overall picture at the end of the exercise.

The next big event on the National Football League landscape is free agency, which begins today, and will have the biggest singular effect on how the first round is mocked and ultimately unfolds.  It will be interesting and fun to return to the drawing board in a few weeks with those updates.

For now, here is my current projection with eight picks on each slide and brief commentary on several choices per page.
