Here's the order for the first round of 2012 NFL Draft, before draft-night trades.

Tonight is the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and, spoiler alert, Andrew Luck will probably go first to the Indianapolis Colts and Robert Griffin III will probably go to the Washington Redskins. (Apologies to any cave-dwellers or people who are allergic to the site of Mel Kiper, Jr. for ruining the surprise.) That said, there's 30 picks after that, not to mention that trades will shift players and picks around as the night goes on.

Here's the draft order - for now - for tonight's first round. Find your team, you know, unless you're a Raiders, Syoaints, or Falcons fan, in which case you don't have a first rounder this season.
