2012 NFL Draft: Full First Round Results and Analysis

While some NFL teams were fortunate enough to address their primary holes for 2012 during the first or second phase of free agency, the rest of the NFL will attempt to shore up their weaknesses via the 2012 NFL draft.

The NFL draft will be held in New York City starting today, April 26, and will continue for three days until April 28. The NFL draft is upon us, and we will know soon enough who else will be drafted after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has called out the names of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III.

NFL teams have attached final grades to every eligible player. The big board is set for every NFL franchise. Once the seventh round is completed and all 253 players have been drafted, organizations can then start the process of trying to sign the undrafted rookies that slipped through the cracks. For the teams that were working with fewer draft picks, that will be a crucial time to try to sign some players with potential.

We now present the biggest draft-day needs of every NFL team. Note that when we list a specific position as a team need, it could reflect that the team either must upgrade the starter at that position or add greater overall depth at the position in question.

For every team slide, we will list the categories for either a top-10 or bottom-10 finish in 2011, analyze what the draft means for each team and toss out some names that make sense for consideration over the course of the first three rounds of the 2012 NFL draft.
