It's getting closer. We're now less than three weeks away from the 2010 NFL Draft. And that means we're now very much in the heart of the "misinformation" season. The media, of course, helps fuel all of the smokescreens. And we all know that these mock drafts below really don't mean much of anything in the grand scheme of things.

Still, it's always interesting to see how these mocks change over time. And with some of the biggest Pro Days of the year now behind us, let's see how things have changed over the past seven days as we focus in on 45 different mock drafts below.

It seems like Brandon Graham is picking up steam right now. He's being mentioned in more mocks than ever as the 12th overall pick. And one of the top "draft insiders" in the business - Al Fronczak - not only has Graham as Miami's pick but also adds the following:

The Dolphins filled one of their needs on the defensive side of the ball with the signing of LB Karlos Dansby and now add Brandon Graham, who I've heard, is very high on Bill Parcell's wish list...Graham will bring some heat off the ege as a standup llinebacker in the Dolphins 3-4 scheme. *Note - The Dolphins would like to move down a few spots and still take Graham, but the possibility exists that he won't be on the board if they move too far.

Al is as tuned into the draft's whispers as anyone out there so I find it interesting that he is hearing Parcells is very high on Graham despite his lack of prototypical height.

Meanwhile, Robert Davis of Football's Future is hearing other things, writing that "there may not be a player the Phins want more to be available at this spot" than Dez Bryant. Of course, this was written on Tuesday - the day of Bryant's Pro Day. I just wonder if Davis wrote this before or after the workout.

Expect lots of twists and turns between now and the draft that is now less than three weeks away.
