The 2012 NFL Draft order was officially released Tuesday, and the New England Patriots may not have the as many overall picks as usual, however, they will have a good amount of quality selections. Currently, the Patriots are one of three teams that will selection twice in the first round, and then will also selection twice in the second.
Of course, history has taught us that head coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots front office likes to trade those top picks for more later-round selections.
