2009 Amateur Mock Draft 1st 3 Rounds!!!

I put a lot of thought into this and I think this is as good of a breakdown on the draft I can do.  I don't agree with all of these picks as I think some players are better than their draft status but this is simply a prediction of what I think could happen.  Please express any thoughts or additions you might have. Thanks and I hope you enjoy!
