The 2012 NFL draft is now upon us. Football fans have been patiently waiting for this event for months. For fans of teams that were not even close to qualifying for the playoffs, their wait has been even longer.
For the past several months, we have seen players go on a wild roller-coaster ride of shooting up draft boards on mock drafts, then coming back down again. We have read about all the red flags of certain players and wonder where they will ultimately be drafted.
There have been smokescreens and misinformation that send analysts down the wrong path, as well as plenty of offseason moves that affect each team's needs heading into the draft.
So all that is left now is to sit back and watch the event unfold. Oh yeah, there is also the chance to make some predictions about what will go down. With no crystal ball at my disposal, I will venture forward and make 50 bold predictions concerning the 2012 NFL draft. I have no idea how many of these will pan out, but it will be fun to see how many I nail.
On to the presentation.
