Immediately after the 2012 NFL Draft concluded, many pundits began handing out their report cards for each team's respective draft class. It was too soon to do so then, and it still is now. But as we enter Week 16 of the NFL season, it is much more appropriate to judge them at this point.
It will be years before we can properly analyze and grade each 2012 draft class. However, now we at least have some idea of how the players will perform in the NFL.
