The 2012 NFL Draft featured a couple of big names. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III took the majority of the spotlight which perhaps overshadowed just how strong this class really was.

Looking back at the season, there were many huge rookie performances on both sides of the football. There were players that had rookie-of-the-year caliber campaigns, but are not even being considered.

Not all of these players came early in the first round, though. We saw second and third round picks come up big for their respective teams and make a name for themselves early on.

If we had to do the Draft over again it would certainly look a lot different. That is exactly what we are doing here at Football Nation.

This article will look at each team’s pick from this past April and then re-draft players based on team need and 2012 performance.

I'm hoping the reason the Bears didn't draft one of the many offensive line options available to them was because Lovie Smith and Mike Tice convinced Phil Emery that their offensive line wasn't a problem. We'll see how Emery handles the draft this year.

The Bears could be a very scary team with a healthy Forte and an upgraded offensive line. Between the draft and free agency, they have a lot of high-calibre lineman to choose from.

20. Tennesse Titans - Original Pick = Kendall Hunter ????????

I think that's supposed to be Kendall Wright.

Definitely meant to put Cleveland there. I'll get that fixed. Thanks Scott.

Pretty sure they never had Trent Richardson and they did land Russell Wilson.
