2012 NFL Draft Notes
RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL, NEW YORK CITY
APRIL 26-28, 2012
NEW YORK STATE OF MIND:
Twenty-six prospects will be in attendance at Radio City Music Hall in New York City for Round 1 of the 2012 NFL Draft – the most in history. This year’s total eclipses last year’s record of 25 players.
A record five players from BCS National Champion Alabama will be on hand: S MARK BARRON, LB DONT’A HIGHTOWER, CB DRE KIRKPATRICK, RB TRENT RICHARDSON and LB COURTNEY UPSHAW. Louisiana State will have three players in attendance, while Baylor, South Carolina, Southern California and Stanford will each have two players in New York.
If all five Alabama players are taken in Round 1, the Crimson Tide would tie for the second-most first round selections from one school in a single year since the advent of the common draft in 1967. The University of Miami had six first-round selections in 2004.
