SB Nation has updated their 2012 NFL Mock Draft once again, and just like last update, there is a projected trade near the top of the draft, as teams look to land Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. However, the Washington Redskins are no longer templated to make the move up to the second overall spot. Instead, they now have the Seattle Seahawks jumping up to the third overall position, trading with the Minnesota Vikings to get the Baylor Bears quarterback.

"This is not necessarily a prediction; I'm just exploring the possibility. With Washington and Miami finding solutions elsewhere, and Cleveland waffling on trading their picks, the next best fit for RGIII would be the Seahawks. Minnesota would be more than willing to trade down. Seattle is a good landing spot for Griffin with a pretty good roster to make the transition easier for a rookie quarterback."

As for the Miami Dolphins pick, the template continues to point toward an offensive lineman being taken in the first round, which would be the fourth time in the last nine years the team took an offensive lineman with their first round pick. SB Nation has Miami selecting Riley Reiff from the Iowa Hawkeyes with the eigth overall pick.

"Since sane new ownership isn't available in the draft (Washington probably would have picked that first anyway), the Dolphins pick up a stellar right tackle. Just as important, he can work in relief of Jake Long who's been battling injuries and entering the last year of his contract."
