The National Football League begins its annual roster restocking, otherwise known as the NFL Draft, this Thursday night. It will take place over three days at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Indianapolis, trying to rebuild after the Peyton Manning era and a 2-14 record in 2011, has the first pick Thursday night. Tuesday, the Colts announced they will take Stanford's Andrew Luck with the first pick, according to
