2012 Preseason Mock Draft

By jphanned

We got together 12 of the Cafe’s finest veterans for this mock draft and produced some excellent results during the past three weeks. This year the pack has broken up a bit, and there is much more debate about where to rank players below the upper tier. Do you draft the player who broke out last season, or do you go for the player who had a disappointing year but is due to bounce back? These veterans will help you answer your questions with pick-by-pick analysis and commentary. Here are the results, enjoy!
