The 2012 NFL Draft has come to a close. This means we're slowly starting to shift into the next part of the offseason: minicamps and OTAs. We're not completely there just yet, though, because analysis of the draft is set to capture our attention for the next couple of weeks. You can bet we'll talk plenty about what transpired the last few days in New York here on Pride of Detroit.
