Back in 1983, John Elway, Dan Marino, and Jim Kelly were all drafted in the first round, and while up until now that draft class was known as one of the best ever, could the 2012 NFL Draft class be better?
In 2012, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill, Russell Wilson, and Nick Foles all start for their teams going into the 2014 NFL season. If you add in Kirk Cousins, and Br0ck Osweiler who are patiently waiting in the wind for their starting spot, and Brandon Weeden sitting in Dallas as Tony Romo’s back up this could be the best draft class ever.
Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson are very solid starters that will be running the league for years to come. Wilson has already won a Super Bowl ring, and Luck has led the Colts to the playoffs in back to back years. RG3 could win comeback player of the year in 2014 with Jay Gruden as his new head coach, and the Dolphins are hoping Ryan Tannehill comes through in year 3. I don’t know about you, but this class has all the talent in the world to be the best. I love Nick Foles running Chip Kelly’s offense and to be honest he could be the guy that shines the most in 2014. Last year he was amazing, and if he can come out slinging the rock like he did this year, expect a Pro Bowl invite.
