NFL Sets Draft Order For April

2012 NFL Draft order for those scoring at home.

The NFL on Tuesday released the order of selection for this year’s NFL Draft in April.

There are 253 choices in rounds one through seven. That’s 32 selections in seven rounds, plus 32 compensatory picks as decided by the league – 32 x 7 = 224 + 32 = 256.

Three choices are out of the draft. Oakland used their third-round selection in the Supplemental Draft to select QB Terrell Pryor. That ended up being the 15th choice of the third round. New Orleans forfeited their second-round choice as discipline from the league for the bounty scandal. That would have been the 59th choice. In the tampering case involving the Chiefs and Lions, Detroit lost their selection in the sixth round, the 22nd pick.

Green Bay has a dozen draft choices. Cleveland and Minnesota have 10 picks and Philadelphia has 9. New England has the most value choices, with five of the first 93 picks (No. 27, 31, 48, 62 and 93.) The Browns also have five high value choices in the first 100 selections (No. 4, 22, 37, 67 and 100.)

On the other end of the spectrum, New Orleans does not get to make a selection until No. 89 in the third round. The Saints traded their first-round choice and lost their second rounder as discipline by the Commissioner. Oakland does not get to select until No. 95, the final choice of the third round that they received as a compensatory choice.

The Chiefs have eight selections in all and three of the top 74 choices. Throughout the draft, they alternate between the 11th and 12th choices with Seattle. They also have New England’s seventh-round selection that came to them in the trade in 2010 of S Jarrad Page.

Here are the Chiefs picks and the last player they selected at that spot in previous NFL Drafts:
