2008 NFL Draft: Final Mock

My favorite day of the year has arrived! The 2008 NFL Draft is just a couple of hours away, and it's time to unveil my final projections. We know who is going #1 overall, but picks 2,3,4, and 5 remain a big mystery and will generate plenty of interest from teams wanting to trade up. These trades are impossible to predict, so we'll see how far off my picks are. There are some notable changes from my last projection, but I still believe that Sedrick Ellis and Keith Rivers will USC's only first rounders, but they will be among the top 10 players selected. Here's my final mock, excuse the lack of color, minor software malfunction...
