2012 NFL Draft Order: Colts, Rams, Vikings Gain First Three Choices

It's been a while since a draft had this much certainty but the 2012 NFL Draft is almost a sure bet to see Andrew Luck go to the Indianapolis Colts, who both host the Super Bowl in February and earned first place in the NFL Draft order in April.

It's been a while since a draft had this much certainty but the 2012 NFL Draft is almost a sure bet to see Andrew Luck go to the Indianapolis Colts, who both host the Super Bowl in February and earned first place in the NFL Draft order in April. For a franchise with a major void at starting quarterback after Peyton Manning's neck injury, Luck is not a bad consolation prize at the end of a very long season.

As for the other slots, the St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings are going to be choosing in front of everyone else after the Colts, but both have quarterbacks they just chose in the last two seasons, which means Robert Griffin III could be a trade option for teams wanting to move up to one of these slots here. Could make for an exciting draft. Here's the official order for the top 20 choices.

1. Indianapolis Colts, 2-14
2. St. Louis Rams, 2-14
3. Minnesota Vikings, 3-13
