Mere hours after the three-day talent collection process known as the NFL draft is completed, out comes various opinions and those report cards evaluating how every team did when it came to adding players to its roster.
It’s the natural thing to do, and no one is slighting any of the work the numerous analysts do. But as we all know, it’s hard to judge players before they hit the field. In fact, some prefer to wait three or four years to give you a proper evaluation.
We’re not that patient around here, though there’s nothing wrong with that. So here’s a ranking of how each of the 32 teams did just under one year after selecting players in the 2012 NFL draft.
Remember, the focus is on the entire draft, not just the team’s first-round pick(s) or top selection. And we’ll be highlighting the key members of the class rather than breaking each pick down. We’ll also be taking into account where some of these selections fit into the 2013 picture.
And as the seasons go by, we’ll eventually see just who truly did the best when it comes to the draft class of 2012.
