The first round of the NFL draft 2012 is tonight. All the hype surrounds two quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Heisman trophy-winner Robert Griffin III. Who will go first? Who will have a good career? All these are questions people really want to know the answers to.
The NFL draft will air on ESPN starting at 8 p.m. EST tonight. The draft will last through Saturday. Mock drafts show Luck going first to the Indianapolis Colts and RGIII going second to the Washington Redskins. Do you think this is what will really happen? If it does, will both quarterbacks be a success in the NFL?
Unfortunately, history shows that the first and second pick quarterbacks usually both do not have successful careers in the NFL. Perhaps Luck and Griffin will overcome these historical facts. Since 1967, two quarterbacks have gone first and second in the draft four times. Three out of those four times one of them was a bust.
Even so, the hopes for these two men are high. Hopefully they will break the trend and both be successful as they begin new relationships with their new teams. Who else are you excited about in the NFL draft 2012?
