The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft begins Thursday night in New York City at 7:00 p.m. local time. The St. Louis Rams and Washington Redskins pulled off a trade months ago that sent St. Louis' No. 2 overall pick to Washington in exchange for the Redskins' No. 6 overall pick this year and two future first rounders. Mock drafts have been sticking the Rams with Oklahoma St. wide receiver Justin Blackmon for months. We will see if all the experts were right when St. Louis comes on the clock at No. 6.
While the first two picks of the draft are already locked up -- the Indianapolis Colts will select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the top pick, followed by Washington selecting Baylor QB Robert Griffin III -- everything else remains up in the air.
