The draft is 3 days away and this will be the final mock draft. We've seen teams add through free agency and trades. We've also seen prospects move up and down a lot since the Senior Bowl and Combine. All of that is combined to make this final mock draft. Last year the draft was about 45% accurate by either team or exact spot that the player was ?drafted. This year we're aiming for 60%, so take a look at the mock draft below and use the comment section to leave your opinions on the selections.

Round 1

The?Brooklyn Nets?are aggressively pursuing a trade for?Atlanta Hawks?star forward?Josh Smith, league sources told ESPN.Reports surfaced late last night from?Chris Broussard, via Twitter.?? According to him,?the Brooklyn Nets were "aggressively pursuing" a trade for Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks to fill their issue at power forward.

The Nets situation at power forward is a real problem for the team and it is becoming clear that an upgrade of some sort needs to be made.? Kris Humphries lost his job to Reggie Evans. But?while Evans brings the Nets a much needed tenacity and rebounding prowess, he is extremely limited on the offensive end, and that?causes problems.

Billy King will certainly be looking around the league to add a piece prior to the February 21st NBA trade deadline.

The Bleacher Report has posted an article on 4 moves the Devils should make. Definitely give this a read. But here is my opinion of each move.

1. Keep Zach Parise- Well yes this is a 100% must for the Devils. If the Devils want to remain a competitive team in the future they are going to need Zach Parise. I believe at this point its a 50/50 shot for Parise. The only thing that bothers me is that the Devils have not started contract talks with Parise but maybe they are waiting until the end of the season to avoid distraction. But Parise makes everyone around him play better and he is a great leader. He should get paid what he wants and I think in a short time he will get a chance for his ring.

After a slew of cuts today, the disposed of yet another safety, Dwight Lowery, after a pair of trades with the Green Bay Packers and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lowery was dealt to the Jaguars for an unconditional draft pick. The Jets then traded an undisclosed conditional draft pick to the Packers for rookie guard Caleb Schlauderaff.

While New York's defense will feel the loss of Lowery, Schlauderaff could add some heft to its offensive line. Schlauderaff started as a left guard for Utah, and was named first-team All-Mountain West Conference in 2010. Throughout his college career, he was also an Academic All-MWC selection four times. In 2010, his offensive line allowed only 11 sacks all season.

Currently, Matt Slauson is listed as the Jets left guard, so time will tell where Schlauderaff fits in.
