2012 NFL Draft Predictions: Odds on Who Will Stay in the Green Room the Longest

The worst part of the draft for any prospect is waiting for your name to be called, especially if you are one of the select few to be in the green room.

Most of the players picked to wait in this particular area are drafted early in Round 1, but we have seen some guys fall to the later part of the round.

Aaron Rodgers was projected as a potential No. 1 overall pick, but fell to the Green Bay Packers at 24th overall. A few years later, Brady Quinn was looked upon as a top-10 caliber player, but fell to the Cleveland Browns at No. 22 overall.

At this point, the list of players that have been invited to the green room this year has not been released. However, there is no doubt that some of these guys could end of falling.

There is a ton of talent in the 2012 NFL draft, but, as every year, a guy may get passed up simply because of the position he plays.

Safeties and centers are oftentimes not considered worthy of a top-10 pick and passed up until the middle of Round 1. We could see that this year.

Teams will also pass up a really talented player because of the depth on their roster.

Let's take a look at five guys who are likely to wait in the green room the longest at the 2012 NFL draft.
