For many football fans and even some NFL teams, it's the most wonderful time of the year. The 2012 NFL Draft is upon us. This isn't just teams picking rookies in hopes that they'll become future Hall of Famers, or at the very least, solid contributors. This is about trades. This is about teams making or breaking themselves. It's about the fans who can look back positively, or negatively, at this day years down the road.

The NFL Draft encompasses so many different storylines and emotions. Each year, there's a draft headliner as in a couple players who are a "can't miss." In other words, if you have a top pick and that guy's still on the board, you darn sure better take him. There's two of those guys this year and they're largely expected to go No. 1 and No. 2: standout quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III (RG3).

Both players are pegged as franchise saviors, long before they've even stepped onto an NFL field. According to multiple reports, the Indianapolis Colts have told Luck they will select him first. That means Luck could/will be filling in the gigantic, legendary shoes of ex-Colts QB Peyton Manning, who's now with the Denver Broncos. On the bright side, Luck will have millions of reasons (in the form of dollars) to help him deal with that pressure.

According to similar reports, RG3 has all but been told by the Washington Redskins that he'll be selected as No. 2. The Redskins by no means are a great team compared to the Colts, but at least RG3 comes into a situation with lower expectations, although it helps filling in for Rex Grossman as opposed to Manning... Anything can happen in the NFL. Draft coverage begins tonight on ESPN, as well as the NFL Network. Is this a make or break night for your favorite NFL team?

    Andrew Luck. But mostly because he's a Stanford guy.

    Trent Richardson, Dre Kirkpatrick, Mark Barron, Dont'a Hightower...

    Not a big browns fan, but i'm sure Trent will help them immensely... The Big news is Dont'a is a Patriot!!

    4 bama players go in the 1st round.

    Roll Tide.

    This is such an over-hyped draft.

    The draft used to be a day I would take the day off, ice up some brews watch all day Friday and then into Saturday it was unorganized, surprising and entertaining. Now they have it over exposed you get to know these guys too well from the weeks of saturated airtime, you pretty much know the pick before the envelope gets to the stage by the time the actual draft happens it's kind of the locker room meets Dancing With the Stars type over hyped broadcast.

    Mr. Luck from Stanford, I think he is a smart quarterback and will do well with the Colts

  • Joey tom C 2012/04/26 23:15:25
    That video has got me ready for football .
  • smitty 2012/04/26 18:24:49
    Seriously? After last year.. any team compared to those Colts were a great team.

    Not sure if they threw the season for the number one pick, but that was one pathetic season.

    But I'm hoping that Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III have the mental toughness to make it through their rookie seasons with their self-confidence intact! They're going to be carrying some really heavy loads in that the hopes of the cities of the teams that draft them, will be upon their shoulders!
  • Lanikai 2012/04/26 17:45:19
    I always hope that some underdog gets a shot, but no real favorites.
  • IanDayre 2012/04/26 17:17:32
    I like the NFL, Bears fan, but I don't live and breathe it. I'll read in the paper who was drafted, fine. Mainly I am fine with seeing who's on the team when the season starts.
  • Alencon 2012/04/26 15:11:04
    Sure. It's always a lot of fun. I'm heading for the Giants' draft day party at MetLife Stadium tonight to see the Lombardi Trophy and watch the first couple of rounds live on the big screens.
