2012 NFL Mock Draft: Because It's Never Too Early To Look Ahead

The 2011 NFL Draft just wrapped up over the weekend, but because there are some people like me that are having some trouble letting go, we're going to start looking ahead to next year already. SB Nation just came out with their first (of many) 2012 NFL Mock Draft, and they have the Cowboys looking for help in the backfield.

With the 20th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select Knile Davis, running back, Arkansas. Davis is a nice player, but don't the Cowboys have about 15 running backs under contract already? Does Jerry Jones love Arkansas players that much? Would anyone be surprised if he did?

Of course, this is kind of an exercise in futility. The chances that the prospects fall this way, let alone earn first round grades as expected, are astronomically low. So it might be too early to run out and buy your customized Knile Davis jersey. But it's never too early to start the speculation.
