CraveOnline's draft projections conclude with a mock draft of the first three rounds.

Projecting the NFL draft past the first round is difficult.  Projecting past the second round is a crap-shoot; it's nearly impossible to predict the many moves going on that will shape the draft throughout the next three days.  If the draft stayed in the order it is currently in, this is how I would see the first three rounds shaping up.
