This is my 2012 NFL Draft Big Board. This is likely my final Top 32 list before the draft.
Click the players name for a scouting report!
A near perfect quarterback prospect who can step in and start from day one. A true franchise quarterback.
Would be #1 on my board if it wasn’t for Luck. Franchise quarterback type of guy who will work hard and surely fill up the highlight reels.
A terrific cover corner that displays excellent fluidity and ball skills. Excels in man coverage and has the potential to be a shutdown corner.
A great left tackle prospect who was built to protect a quarterbacks blindside. Has great athleticism and doesn’t really have any major weaknesses.
A tough runner who may not run by you, but will certainly run through you. Better prospect than Mark Ingram and should be a very successful #1 back in the NFL.
A rare elite guard prospect who can step in and start right away and be a powerful run blocker. A technician who will only get better in the NFL.
All the talent in the world but has some questions surrounding his motivation. Prototypical size and strength combined with excellent athleticism has me believing he could be a Julius Peppers-lite.
A versatile defender who can line up with his hand in the dirt or standing up. Strong at the point of attack and while he won’t time extraordinary well, he simply makes plays.
Explosive receiver who’s a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. Can play on the outside and has the potential of a Mike Wallace/DeSean Jackson type playmaker.
An athletic tight end who can consistently create separation and owns an excellent pair of hands. Not bad as a blocker but has room for improvement.
A physically imposing lineman who has the versatility to excel at both guard and tackle. Shades of Jonathan Ogden.
A tall athletic lineman who is an ideal fit on the left side. Has to get stronger and might have a rough start to his NFL career but has a high ceiling.
A fantastic athlete who could be dominant in a 1-gap scheme once he can consistently play with a good pad level.
An athletic edge rusher who can be used in many ways. Love his tenacious attitude and non-stop motor.
A big bodied receiver who can go up and come down with the football with ease. Has some consistency issues and could be a head case off the field.
A powerful tackle with the quickness to make plays in the back-field. Scheme versatile and should be able to make an immediate impact.
A raw, undersized pass-rusher with terrific speed and flexibility. Best suited for a 3-4 defense but with added strength can play in the 4-3.
An undersized pass-rusher who can play in space. Still has to develop as a pass-rusher but has the quickness and flexibility required to play at a high level.
An instinctive safety who always finds himself around the ball. Excellent in run support but also a ball-hawk in coverage. A bit tight but should be a starter for a long time.
A prototypical ILB build and a classic thumper-type ‘backer. Terrific against the run and can hold his own in coverage despite his size.
An explosive runner who can beat you in a number of different ways. Has the ability to take over the game and will be most effective as part of a 1-2 punch.
A versatile defensive lineman but doesn’t stand out at one single position. A bit of a tweener who can be productive but might never be an elite player.
A raw athlete who will have to learn the wide receiver position in the NFL. Has tremendous physical tools and will take time to develop but has Heyward-Bey type potential.
A plug and play center who is an excellent pass blocker. Needs to add some strength and play with better leverage before he can become great.
A good all-round back who should be able to step in and be a #1 back for a team. Similar build to Ray Rice.
A speedster who is a threat to take it to the house anytime he gets the ball in his hands. Must work on being more physical and running with more power.
An undersized linebacker who simply gets the job down. Is always around the ball and is a sure-tackler.
A physical receiver with deceptive speed. Has the tools to be a #1 receiver but has a laundry list of off-field issues.
A powerful lineman who has the size and strength to play nose tackle. Not much of a pass-rusher but has some quickness to work with.
A quick penetrating defensive tackle who can wreak havoc in the backfield. Still needs to develop but has the skill set to excel in a one-gap scheme.
A sound linebacker prospect who can start from day one. A sure tackler who displayed better than average athleticism at the combine. Still needs work at the point of attack and doesn’t play up to his measurables.
Blazing fast slot receiver who has the potential to be the next Wes Welker. Dazzling in the open field but has some major injury concerns.
