The 2012 NFL Draft featured a couple of big names. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III took the majority of the spotlight which perhaps overshadowed just how strong this class really was.Looking back at the season, there were many huge rookie performances on both sides of the football. There were players that had rookie-of-the-year caliber campaigns, but are not even being considered.Not all of these players came early in the first round, though. We saw second and third round picks come up big for their respective teams and make a name for themselves early on.If we had to do the Draft over again it would certainly look a lot different. That is exactly what we are doing here at Football Nation.This article will look at each team’s pick from this past April and then re-draft players based on team need and 2012 performance.Enjoy.
