The 2012 NFL draft has had a consensus No. 1 overall pick for an entire year already. Despite the lack of uncertainty at the top, the remainder of the selections will provide the excitement that football addicts require to tide them over until the fall.
The draft will be heavy on quarterbacks with Matt Barkley, Landry Jones and Robert Griffin III close behind Andrew Luck. Considering the proliferation of passing offenses over the last few years, plenty of these signal-callers will hear their name on Thursday night.
Also, note that the structured pay scale in place will allow teams to draft a little more creatively than before. Teams will not be limited to selecting offensive tackles and quarterbacks with their top pick now that the investment is somewhat limited.
