Athlon Sports unveils its first college fantasy mock draft
The 2012 college football season doesn't kick off until August 30, but we at Athlon Sports and some of our friends couldn't wait, so we decided to go ahead and get an early start by doing our first mock draft.
Not surprisingly, Wisconsin's Montee Ball, a Heisman Trophy finalist who set the NCAA scoring record with 39 total touchdowns last season, was the No. 1 overall pick followed by fellow running back Robbie Rouse from Fresno State.
