2012 NFL Draft -- Statistical Analysis of QBs

Last year, there were four (4) QBs taken in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft and six (6) QBs overall taken in the first 36 picks — Cam Newton (1st – Panthers), Jake Locker (8th – Titans), Blaine Gabbert (10th – Jaguars), Christian Ponder (12th – Vikings), Andy Dalton (35th – Bengals), and Colin Kaepernick (36th – 49ers).  That means nearly 20% of the teams in the NFL selected a QB in the first 36 picks.  It is unlikely that this will happen again in the 2012 NFL Draft.

In the 2012 NFL Draft, it is possible that four (4) QBs could again be selected in the first round.  It is a done deal that Andrew Luck (Stanford) and Robert Griffin III (Baylor) will be selected with the first and second picks.  Ryan Tannehill (Texas A&M) will likely be taken with one of the top twelve (12) picks — he could even be selected with the fourth pick.  And, it is possible that Brandon Weeden (Oklahoma State) could be selected in the second half of the first round.

However, I think the remaining 2012 NFL Draft QBs could actually be taken well after the 36th pick.
