The 2012 NFL Combine is just one week away and well after a month since the 2011 regular season ended we're starting to get a good feel for the draft stock of most prospects.
So now feels like a good time to debut my second mock draft of the year, this time featuring trades. The average first round of the NFL Draft has about four to eight trades so it seems unrealistic to ignore them, although it's borderline impossible to actually accurately predict them.
