It's hard to believe it's already been a year since Cam Newton was selected number one overall by the Carolina Panthers in last year's National Football League (NFL) Draft but it has.

And now it's time to do it all again.

That's right, folks, the 2012 NFL Draft has finally arrived. The festivities kick off at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN and NFL Network and will run for three hours. Due to the still-escalating popularity of the NFL, the first round of the draft is held in primetime.

Say what you want about that, it's nice to know you'll get to see your team make its big first round selection.

We know the first two, at least with as much certainty as possible at present time. With the first pick in the Draft the Indianapolis Colts will be selecting Stanford Quarterback Andrew Luck and the Washington Redskins will use the second pick on Baylor Quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

After that, it's anyone's guess, folks. And that's what makes it so damn exciting.

We'll have live coverage of every pick later on tonight right here but in the meantime, check out the complete draft order after the jump.
