The 2012 NFL Draft is finally here. After months of speculation the mock drafting is done and beginning at 8 p.m. ET Thursday the real drafting will begin at Radio City Music Hall.
The first round will be held Thursday, Rounds 2 and 3 will begin Friday at 7 p.m. and Rounds 4-7 will be held Saturday beginning at noon.
The New York Jets have the 16th overall selection. What will they do with it? Maybe they will trade up for Trent Richardson. Maybe they will take the best player they find on the board at No. 16. We have been following mock drafts for months, so you can see our StoryStream to follow the progression of those predictions.

The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants have the 32nd and final pick of the first round. As he always does, Giants general manager Jerry Reese says the team will draft based on ability, not positional need. Here is a look at what the mock drafts have been saying about what the Giants might do with their first-round pick.
What we know for sure about the draft is that the Indianapolis Colts will take Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck No. 1, and that the Washington Redskins will take Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III No. 2. After that, all bets are off.
