2012 2nd round NFL Mock Draft: The Aftermath

Eight trades, two players selected from Boise St. (Shea McClellin and Doug Martin) for the first time ever, two players selected from Notre Dame (Michael Floyd and Harrison Smith) for the first time since 1994, Dontari Poe's hair, Fletcher Cox's man hug, Melvin Ingram's choreographed handshake with Goddell?! Oh yeah, and Seattle's brass just made it a little more cloudy in gloomy in Seattle with its selection of Bruce Irvin from West Virginia (good luck with that). As we learned yesterday, any effort to predict the trades in the draft were proven futile so this draft will not try to do so. This draft is so deep that there will still be great values in round 3 and 4 so do not fret if your team has not performed up to snuff quite yet. Enjoy this round two mockery.

NE(from OAK)JANORIS JENKINSCBNORTH ALABAMA2nd best cover skills in the draft, but has serious baggage. NE is a perfect fit.
