2012 NFL Draft Order and Beyond Andrew Luck

The Indianapolis Colts won the Andrew Luck sweep stake while avoiding the humiliation of finishing the season without a win. Now, they have the no.1 spot in the 2012 NFL draft to get the best quarterback possible to sit on the bench behind Peyton Manning. Luck has already said he’s OK with sitting on the bench for a year.

Beyond that? Matt Kalil of USC, an offensive tackle, looks like the consensus choice at the number 2 spot, with Justin Blackmon, Trent Richardson (if he goes pro) and Robert Griffin III also among the offensive talents everyone can agree upon regarding their top 10 draft status.

Of the defensive tackles to look forward towards, it seems that LSU’s Morris Claiborne (CB) and North Carolina’s Defensive End Quinton Couples are a sure thing among the top 10 picks. Quarterbacks are always hot commodity, and if Landry Jones decided to go pro, he’ll be a first round pick. So will Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill.
