Mitchell & Ford’s 2012 7-round NFL Mock Draft

It is a tradition as old as time itself and as American as apple pie. John Mitchell and I have been doing these 7 round mock drafts for countless years (three). And in each of our previous attempts, we got every single pick right (don’t check on that). This year, we again guarantee that every pick is correct, or my name isn’t Pennyweather Mandrake! (It isn’t)
