After the special mock drafts of the past few weeks where we have had a look at the possible effects of teams trading up for Robert Griffin III. Well today we arrive at the conclusion of that — the unveiling of the team I have as the favorite to trade for the #2 overall pick.

And the winner is…


It’s starting to look like the Browns have moved on and with the declaration that it will cost two first-round picks to obtain the #2 pick, all bets are off. The Redskins are certainly in play and have shown they are very eager to get their hands on RG3. I just think the Dolphins will want it more.

With that said, welcome to the second of my special edition trade mocks. With this mock, you will see a number of possible trade scenarios played out. First and foremost on everyone’s mind is the fate of the #2 overall pick but that will not be the only trade come draft day so let’s see what else might be in store.

As per a regular mock draft, pages 1 and 2 contain the picks themselves. In this special edition mock draft, there is a page 3 that describes the individual trades and gives a short explanation for each.
