First Round Mock Draft for the NFL Draft After Week One of Free Agent Signings

The Free Agency period 2012 completed week one with the huge signing by the Denver Broncos of QB Peyton Manning. That signing had a huge effect on the movement of free agent QBs, Matt Flynn, Chad Henne and Kyle Orton last week. It also had a huge impact on the Redskins trading up for the #2 overall selection with the Rams. The Broncos will turn every stone in an attempt to give Manning the arsenal of weapons to compete for the NFL title and skilled position players will command attention in both free agency and the NFL Draft 2012.

This new Mock Draft reflects the first week of free agency signings with the Broncos adding speedy wideout Kendall Wright. The pro days of Baylor, LSU and Stanford this week will have a big impact on the draft status of players like Wright, but also WR Rueben Randle, TE Coby Fleener and DT Michael Brockers. QB Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III will throw this week, though their selection as the top two overall picks is almost guaranteed at this point of the process.
