NFL Mock Draft 2013: First Round Projections Amid Start Of Free Agency
March 12, 2013 6:33 AM EST
On Monday, NFL teams were officially allowed to begin making moves for the 2013 regular season.
With the ability to sign players and make trades, a few big moves have been made less than 24 hours into the start of free agency. The New York Giants have reportedly agreed to give defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins a three-year contract, while Jay Glazer reports the Minnesota Vikings agreed to send Percy Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks.
The Scouting Combine and pro days will help teams make their decisions on draft day, but the moves made in free agency will provide a clearer picture of where the marquee college players will be taken from April 25 to April 27.
