Matt Miller Re-Grades the 2012 NFL Draft
Jason DeCrow/Associated Press

Two seasons have passed since Andrew Luck was made the first overall pick of the 2012 NFL draft. On that night, every team was full of optimism when looking toward the future. How do those picks look 32 games later?

It's a rule of thumb to only grade a draft class after three years, but you can get a good start on grading the 2012 draft after two full seasons. Some grades will definitely change as players get healthy (or injured) and earn (or lose) playing time. This is not a final grade, but rather it's a look in at how the players and picks are performing through two seasons. Think of this as a third-quarter grade card.

It wouldn't be fair to grade NFL teams without also grading myself, though, so I'm posting my original predraft rankings of each player along with his grade. In my predraft process, players are graded and ranked based on their predicted NFL success, not their draft order, so now three years later we can truly get a feel for if those grades were correct or not.

Note: Only 350 players were ranked predraft, as opposed to 500 players ranked predraft for the 2011 re-draft article.
