When your favorite teams draft players at the 2012 NFL Draft, they’ll be handed their teams jersey, along with caps for players to pose in while taking pictures with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

This year, New Era will take over for Reebok as the official designer for NFL head wear.

New Era has designed three different caps for each NFL team with snapback, fitted cap, and flex fit cap designs.

The league announced Nike as the official uniform provider to replace Reebok, and the completed changover should be in place before the start of the 2012 NFL season.

Nike will re-design all current team uniforms, making them more modernized, while still respecting tradition as they did for many teams at the college football level.

With the New Era draft caps, players will wear the fitted caps on stage.

Family and friends will receive the flex fits and snapbacks.

    Rogers Goodell get yourselves a New Orleans Saints cap because the Saints are going to be in that 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans that everyone hates so bad we played ball like every other team in the NFL. Every team in the NFL complains about them playing dirty ball they are a pro team so they plays pro ball the Saints has come a long way. To be mistreated and talked about worser than any other team in the NFL they were talked about when the hurricane hit New Orleans so this scandal is another trumbling block that the Saints must over come New Orleans Saints you can do this thang. (GO SAINTS GO STRAIGHT TO THE BOWL)!!
