The word "Smelley" on the back of this jersey doesn't mean it hasn't been washed. It's the actual name of Alabama's fullback.

By now you've probably heard the name of every player who could possibly be chosen in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft.

If you're a real pigskin head, you've probably also looked at names of players who could go in the middle and late rounds of the draft.

Analyzing the draft means sifting through a lot of heights, weights, 40-yard dash times and statistics.

Every once in a while, however, a name stands out among all those numbers, either because it's funny, it sounds cool or it's just fun to say.

I've chosen the top 30 names among 2012 NFL draft prospects, grouped into 12 categories.

Some of these players are future stars, and some of them will get their only fame from this article before going out into the real world and getting jobs that pay only five-figure salaries.

But they're all on the same team: The 2012 NFL Draft All-Name Team.

UPDATE: It's only 29 names. I miscounted. Sorry.
