On Wednesday, Mr. NFL draft guru himself, Mel Kiper, released his latest mock draft and for the first time expanded it to include both first and second round projections.

Blackmon vs. Floyd vs. Wright: Why There's No Clear Cut Top Receiver

As with most draft classes, followers of the draft want to instantly compare it to previous years. In short, there is no AJ Green or Julio Jones or Calvin Johnson in this year's draft class.

Blackmon has game-changing ability

The 2012 draft class may be deepest at wide receiver. The NFL Scouting Combine invited 47 wide receiver prospects in 2012, the most since 2008 and up from just 23 in 2011.
