Mock Drafts Post-Possible Trades

(Each trade I must add will come to within + or – 5 to 10 points on CBS Sportsline’s Draft-Pick Value Chart, and will only include picks for the 2012 Draft.  Even though Pittsburgh could receive an offer to move down like the Patriots did last season (#27 in exchange for 2nd Rounder in 2011 and 1st in 2012 from Saints), I will only be doing picks/trade scenarios which could occur in the upcoming draft.  Details aside though, let’s get started here:

Mychal Kendricks could be a viable option in Round 2. Mandatory Credit: Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE
