The 2012 NFL draft is all about who will land the first pick and the rights to Andrew Luck. Luck is by far the top available player. He is considered a can't-miss prospect with tremendous upside. The hype on Luck is so rabid that a slogan has been created: "Suck for Luck."
Luck is not the only talented player in the 2012 NFL draft. He is joined by a few other top-level quarterbacks, such as Landry Jones and Matt Barkley. Both of these quarterbacks are more raw than Luck but possess a lot of potential.
This draft also features a trio of excellent middle linebackers, a position that has been recently weak. Vontaze Burfict, Manti Te'o and Luke Kuechly should all be selected in the first round. Burfict and Te'o have a chance to develop into true defensive forces.
At this point in the season, the draft order is anything but certain. However, I have used Bleacher Report's Matt Miller's power rankings. These are not normal power rankings, as they also project the teams' final records. There might not be a better place to get a projected draft order.
