2012 NFL Draft (1st Round RECAP/ Trades)- April 26, 2012

The 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft set the 2 records for the 1st round, the most trades in the 1st round, and the shortest amount of time to complete the 1st round. My latest mock draft is completely off by nearly every pick, and I didn't like this year's 1st round due to some teams making bad picks. Anyways, here's the 2012 NFL Draft 1st Round RECAP, with grades. ENJOY!!!
