I've got the complete first round of the 2012 NFL draft posted after the jump.

As usual, we nailed a few picks and scratched our heads on a few others. The biggest surprise pick to me was the Seahawks selecting Bruce Irvin with the 15th overall pick. He was viewed by most as a second rounder but perhaps there was more buzz about him than we knew. The biggest surprise trade was the Cowboys moving up to select Morris Claiborne. They didn't even bring him into Dallas for a visit. This was a total stunner. The team coming out looking the best after this is the Rams, who now have three second round picks. They picked up an extra one for moving back but still got the guy they potentially would've picked at No. 6.

More to come tomorrow. The full first round is posted below...
