2012 NFL Draft: Michael Floyd and 6 Other Overrated 1st Round Prospects

The NFL draft is a few weeks away and nothing is more amusing than watching the frenzy that happens this time of year.

It has become humorous to see players' values fluctuate without them even playing a down of football, but right now there are some grossly overrated prospects making their way up on many draft boards.

The months leading up to the annual draft are a sight to see. Every nugget of game film is dissected, all test scores are scrutinized and the stocks of future NFL players rise and fall quicker than the Dow Jones.

There are players every year who inflate their value due to an excellent pro day or combine workout but fail to match the hype when they reach the NFL level.

The flip side of this is seeing a player run a less than impressive 40-yard dash and then watching his stock plummet.

None of these measureables do much to tell if a football player can perform on the field and only time will tell if these draft picks can ever live up to expectations.
