The 2012 NFL Draft was the 77th annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises to select newly eligible football players. The draft, which is officially called the "NFL Player Selection Meeting",[2] was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City from April 26–28.[3] The Indianapolis Colts, who compiled the league's worst record in the 2011 season with a 2-14 record, had the right to the first selection.[4]

On April 24, Indianapolis general manager Ryan Grigson announced that the team would take Andrew Luck as their first pick, saying it was "the right thing to do" in anticipation of the "media gauntlet" Luck would face in the days leading up to the draft.[5] Luck, being highly regarded as one of the best quarterback prospects in years, had been the subject of the "Suck for Luck" campaigns by fans hoping their teams would end up with the worst record in the 2011 season so they would have the chance to draft Luck. Something rare occurred when the first and last picks in the draft were quarterbacks taken by the same team.[6]

Even at a relatively early stage, the strength of the Quarterbacks in the 2012 class had been noted.[7] In addition to first rounders Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill, third round picks Russell Wilson and Nick Foles have also had strong starts to their professional careers, as well as fourth rounder Kirk Cousins who has played well in relief of Robert Griffin III.


In the draft, a record 5 players not from the United States were drafted, being Canadians Tyrone Crawford (drafted 3rd round, 81st overall by the Dallas Cowboys) and Philip Blake (drafted 4th round, 108th overall by the Denver Broncos), Angolan Christo Bilukidi (drafted 6th round, 189th overall by Oakland Raiders), Englishman Jack Crawford (drafted 5th round, 158th overall by Oakland), and German Markus Kuhn (drafted 7th round, 239th overall by the New York Giants).[8]

The following is the breakdown of the 253 players selected by position:

Early entrants[edit]

A record 65 underclassmen announced their intention to forgo their remaining NCAA eligibility and declare themselves eligible to be selected in the draft.[9] Of the 65 eligible underclassmen, 44 (or 67.7%) were drafted.[10]

The selection of Luck, a junior, marked the fourth straight draft where the first overall selection was an underclassman. Since non-seniors were first eligible to be drafted in 1990, fifteen first overall picks (including seven of the last eight) have been players who have entered the draft early.[11] Eight of the first ten players chosen in this draft were non-seniors, which matched the record set in the previous draft. Mark Barron and Ryan Tannehill were the only two seniors among the first ten draftees.

Determination of draft order[edit]

The draft order is generally based on each team's record from the previous season, with teams who qualified for the postseason selecting after those which failed to make the playoffs.[12]

  2. ^ Oakland forfeited its third-round selection after selecting quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the 2011 Supplemental Draft.[15]
  3. ^ Detroit forfeited its sixth-round selection due to findings of tampering consisting of comments made by defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham about certain Kansas City Chiefs' players.[16]
