2012 NFL Mock Draft: Full First-Round Predictions

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.
