Your 2012 first round draft order is set (almost)

When one season ends, another begins.

The NFL concluded its “on field” season when the clock hit 00:00 in the New York Giants’ Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots on Sunday, which probably has many of you headed for a serious case of withdrawal. But fear not, football junkies, because the drama that is the NFL offseason is about to get underway.

Free agency kicks off in March, but draft season is already upon us, as the 2012 NFL Combine begins Wednesday, February 22 in Indianapolis.
