The names have been called, the jerseys have been made and there’s one thing left to do for Panini America as the NFL Draft continues.

Make the football cards.

Up first on the Texas-based company’s schedule is 2012 Prestige, which arrives in June with No. 1 pick Andrew Luck, No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III, No. 3 pick Trent Richardson and more. (Need an Andrew Luck checklist or OPG? Click here.)

But before the cards can be printed, they must be mocked up. The company unveiled a selection of cards on Thursday night as the Draft carried on.

See the first four … after the jump.

The Topps images were released within a second or two of the commish’s mouth saying their names. These were a bit later.

Will Prestige include the draft day SPs as they have done in previous years?
