2012 NFL draft
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", was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City from April 26–28. 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.
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. 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.
Even at a relatively early stage, the strength of the quarterbacks in the 2012 class had been noted. For the first time since the 1970 merger, five rookie quarterbacks would start during opening week - first-round draft picks Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill, and Brandon Weeden, as well as third-rounder Russell Wilson. By season's end, three more rookie quarterbacks would start their first games - third-round draft pick Nick Foles, fourth-rounder Kirk Cousins, and sixth-rounder Ryan Lindley. Undrafted quarterbacks Case Keenum and Austin Davis, who were both signed to practice squads following the draft, would eventually win starting quarterback positions during later seasons. Luck, Griffin, and Wilson would be named to the Pro Bowl following the conclusion of the regular season, while Foles would be recognized a season later.
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).
The following is the breakdown of the 253 players selected by position:
A record 65 underclassmen announced their intention to forgo their remaining NCAA eligibility and declare themselves eligible to be selected in the draft. Of the 65 eligible underclassmen, 44 (or 67.7%) were drafted.
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. 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.
