Pac-12 Rewind: 2012 Conference NFL Draft Picks

W ith the 2022 NFL Draft just days away, we’re taking a quick look back at each year in the Pac-12 era, beginning with 2012.

The first NFL Draft of the Pac-12 era saw a total of 28 Conference players drafted, including four in the First Round. Cal led the way with six picks, followed by Oregon and Stanford with four apiece.

Stanford’s Andrew Luck became the Cardinal’s fourth No. 1 overall pick, joining John Elway (Baltimore Colts, 1983), Jim Plunkett (New England Patriots, 1971), and Bobby Garrett (Cleveland Browns, 1954).

There was great value to be found in later rounds as well, with the Eagles taking future Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles in the Third Round.

Below you’ll find a table with all the Pac-12 picks in 2012 followed by a count of players drafted in each of the seven rounds by program.
