The Chiefs have drafted well 3 of the last 4 years, but 2008 stands out. Seven starters, five as rookies.

If I didn't have a favorite team back in 2008 and would have decided to move forward with whatever team had the best drafts since then as my favorite, I'm pretty sure I'd be a Chiefs fan now.

Haven't been many great Raider drafts, 2010 still has a lot of potential though for this upcoming season.

1. Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama-Has shown some potential, but his off the field problem might hurt his career. If he gets jail time he will be cut, but the talent is there.

2. Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas- Doesn't produce many sacks, but is very strong against the run. He will move inside to DT hopefully this year.

3. Jared Veldheer, T, Hillsdale
Best pick of this draft so far, looks to be like very good LT for us for the future. Very strong in the run game and is the best olinemen on the team.

4a. Bruce Campbell, T, Maryland
Has all the potential in the world, but has been a non factor in his short NFL career. This might be his make or break year, but it would be awesome to finally see him play at RT.

4b. Jacoby Ford, WR, Clemson
Speedy WR/KR that had a great rookie season, but dealt with injuries for most of his 2nd year. If he can stay healthy he should continue to be a solid weapon.

5. Walter McFadden, CB, Auburn
Showed promise in rookie season but was cut the training after.

6. Travis Goethel, LB, Arizona State
Looked like a potential steal as a special teams stud and potential starter/rotational player at a LB position. Had a big injury though this year and could be a cut.

7a. Jeremy Ware, CB, Michigan State
Similar to McFadden, Ware played some special teams and also looked alright in coverage. Was cut though in training camp last year.

7b. Stevie Brown, S, Michigan
Was a fan favorite to many Raider fans, and ended up making a huge play for the Patriots after being cut by us. Good job Hue.

Hands down it was the 02 draft for the Eagles

1 26 Lito Sheppard CB Florida
2 58 Michael M. Lewis SS Colorado
2 59 Sheldon Brown CB South Carolina
3 91 Brian Westbrook RB Villanova
4 124 Scott Peters C Arizona State
5 162 Freddie Milons WR Alabama
6 198 Tyreo Harrison LB Notre Dame
7 238 Raheem Brock DE Temple

Hit on the first 4 picks all were starters and I think they all made at least one pro bowl if not more 05 and 09 were both great drafts for the Eagles.

I knew they had a good draft that year, but I didn't realize it was that good. That's the type of draft that every team hopes to have when they're picking first overall.

Skins 1983 - Arguably the greatest Redskin of all time.

1 28 Darrell Green CB Texas A&I
2 28 Richard Williams RB Memphis State
3 28 Charles Mann DE Nevada
6 26 Bob Winckler OT Wisconsin
6 28 Babe Laufenberg QB Indiana
7 28 Kelvin Bryant RB North Carolina
8 28 Todd Hallstrom OT Minnesota
9 27 Marcus Gilbert RB Texas Christian
10 28 Geff Gandy LB Baylor

But since I've been folliwing it has not been pretty. This last years class looks most promising.

1 16 Ryan Kerrigan DE Purdue - Starter
2 9 Jarvis Jenkins DT Clemson - Could start, minimum consistent rotation
3 15 Leonard Hankerson WR Miami - Showed a lot of upside, could become starter
4 8 Roy Helu RB Nebraska - Starter
5 15 Dejon Gomes S Nebraska - Started end of season, Could start 2012
5 24 Niles Paul WR Nebraska - Good special teamer
6 12 Evan Royster RB Penn State - Primary backup
6 13 Aldrick Robinson WR Southern Methodist
7 10 Brandyn Thompson CB Boise State - Dime CB
7 14 Maurice Hurt OT Florida - Started end of the season
7 21 Markus White DE Florida State
7 50 Chris Neild DT West Virginia - Primary backup NT

The Bucs drafted Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. It's pretty hard to match that production in a single round.

1995 Jaguars (Their first draft)

1 Tony Boselli (was on his way to HOF before injury)
2 James Stewart (good RB for a few years)
3 Bryan Schwartz
4 Chris Hudson (starting safety for a for years)
5 Rob Johnson (traded him for a pick which ended up being Fred Taylor)

1996 was good too with Kevin Hardy, Tony Brakens, Aaron Beasley, Reggie Barlow

In all seriousness, Miami hasn't had a good one in the free agency era. All of Shula and Jimmy Johnson's drafts had one or two good players found in the mid-to-late rounds but lots of busts in the early rounds. Dave Wannstedt didn't believe in the draft and always traded away all our picks. Cam Cameron's one draft was arguably the worst class ever. Saban and Parcells drafts were okay overall but nothing too exciting. 2008 was probably the best:

1. Jake Long, OT, Michigan
2a. Philip Merling, DE, Clemson
2b. Chad Henne, QB, Michigan
3. Kendall Langford, DE, Hampton
4. Shawn Murphy, OL, Utah State
6a. Jalen Parmele, RB, Toledo
6b. Donald Thomas, OG, Connecticut
6c. Lex Hilliard, RB, Montana
7. Lionel Dotson, DT, Arizona

Jake Long has obviously been an all pro. Donald Thomas was a rookie starter that has since bounced around and is now a backup in NE. Henne and Langford were both starters. Lex Hilliard has been a key ST ace the last few years. Merling has been in and out of the lineup as he's dealt with injuries. Overall not a great class but that's truly the best class I can offer for the Dolphins...

McGrath has been a starter and valuable depth at LB. Mouton hasn't played well, but was injured last season. Kropog has provided nice depth at tackle and guard.

Ringer has proved to be a viable backup to CJ., and McCourty in the 6th round was an absolute steal.

So Kenny Britt, Jared Cook and McCourty are all very good starters.

The rest have played and been valuable depth
2006 was decent:
VY (1st)
LenDale White (2nd)
Stephen Tulloch (4th)
Cortland Finnegan (7th)


But I honestly think 2011 will be the best:

1st - Jake Locker - Our future at QB, had a few shining spots as a backup last year. Hopefully he turns out to be our franchise QB.
2nd - Akeem Ayers - Started all 16G last year at OLB. 76 tackles & 2 sacks - not bad as a rookie.
3rd - Jurrell Casey - Started all but 1 game - 52 tckls & 2.5 sacks. Was a force in the middle for a terrible Titans DL.
4th - Colin McCarthy - Started 7 games when Ruud went down and posted 68 tackles. Future star at MLB.
4th - Jamie Harper - didn't do much, potential spell back for CJ
5th - Karl Klug - situation DT pass rusher, led the Titans in sacks last year.
6th - Byron Stingley - backup OT
7th - Zach Clayton - PS DT
7th - Tommie Campbell - ton of potential, 6'2 CB that runs a 4.2, returned a TD, and should get more PT at CB

6 of those guys should be starting in 2012.

Definitely. Obviously I was pumped getting Lito, but you have no idea how excited I was when I heard Brian Westbrook's name over the PA system. One of the best picks in franchise history. They didn't hit on anyone after him except Brock and it turns out he was cut in training camp and ended up starting the next 8 years in Indy.

I would have to say 1998, when we got Leonard Little and Grant Wistrom, our bookend DE's, as well as contributors in Az Hakim and Roland Williams.

1983

1st- Jimbo Covert, a franchise LT
1st- Willie Gault, an "ok" WR
2nd- Mike Richardson, above average CB
3rd- Dave Duerson, one of the best safeties of the 80s
4th- Tom Thayer, above average G
4th- Pat Dunsmore, a nobody TE
8th- Richard Dent, HOF DE
8th- Mark Bortz, above average G
9th- Rob Fada, a nobody G
9th- Mark Zavagnin, a nobody LB
10th- Anthony Hutchison, a nobody RB
11th- Gary Worthy, a nobody RB
12th- Oliver Williams, a nobody WR

That one draft got the Bears 7 starters for those sick 80s teams.

2010 for the 'Hawks though it's not amazing. Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor are Pro Bowl safeties and are both likely top ten players at their positions. Okung has shown to be pretty darn good when he's healthy. Tate has definitely shown flashes and didn't drop a ball last season. Thurmond, like Okung, has shown talent when healthy. Since the 'Hawks haven't exactly had great drafts, like, ever, two Pro Bowlers likely pushes it over the top.

He said drafts since we started following the team, so the 83 Bears are fair game.

Since I started paying attention to the draft, it was probably 02 for the Steelers.

1st-Kendall Simmons-solid starting guard when he was healthy
2nd-Antwaan Randle-El-solid number 2/3 wr
3rd-Chris Hope-starting safety for most of his career
4th-Larry Foote-Starting MLB for most of his career
5th-Verron Haynes-Played some fullback, and was in the league for 5-6 years.
6th-Lee Mays-Never really did anything at wr for us or anybody else
7th-LaVar Glover-Didn't make the team
7th-Brett Kiesel-Probably the best value pick of this draft for us. Has been a solid starting DE for us for a while now.

So we got 5 guys who all played for a significant amount of time with the Steelers and other teams. The 2010 draft could match that in a few years though.

But I honestly think 2011 will be the best:

1st - Jake Locker - Our future at QB, had a few shining spots as a backup last year. Hopefully he turns out to be our franchise QB.
2nd - Akeem Ayers - Started all 16G last year at OLB. 76 tackles & 2 sacks - not bad as a rookie.
3rd - Jurrell Casey - Started all but 1 game - 52 tckls & 2.5 sacks. Was a force in the middle for a terrible Titans DL.
4th - Colin McCarthy - Started 7 games when Ruud went down and posted 68 tackles. Future star at MLB.
4th - Jamie Harper - didn't do much, potential spell back for CJ
5th - Karl Klug - situation DT pass rusher, led the Titans in sacks last year.
6th - Byron Stingley - backup OT
7th - Zach Clayton - PS DT
7th - Tommie Campbell - ton of potential, 6'2 CB that runs a 4.2, returned a TD, and should get more PT at CB

6 of those guys should be starting in 2012.
I just couldn't say the 06 when the first two picks were basically bust.Yes they did contribute and really helped us win some games, but they are off the team 5 years later.

I really like last years draft,and think it could be huge for us. But I can't call that our best after one season, I've liked alot of players after one season and thought htey would be very good for us just to have them fizzle out

2010 was a damn good draft, actually. Starting left tackle, two Pro Bowl safeties, Walter Thurmond and Anthony McCoy are both pretty decent backups... and this is only after two years; these guys are very much still in the developmental process. I suspect that draft is going to age very well.

2008 was prolly the best the Chiefs have ever picked. it also happened to be Carl Petersons last draft. 1996 was a pretty good draft too. got Jerome Woods, Reggie Tongue, John Browning, Donnie Edwards and Joe Horn all consecutive selections.

Wow. The worst player on that list is the very solid/underrated Antonio Smith. Pretty much the 4 of the 8 best players on that SB team. Had no idea they landed Dansby AND Dockett AFTER Fitzgerald.

Don't know about individual draft for the Jets over the past 40 years but they landed D'Brick, Mangold, Revis, and David Harris with their first 2 picks in '06 and '07.

Oh duh...2000 draft for the Jets:

1 - Ellis
1 - Abraham
1 - Pennington - Career barely salvaged after the shoulder injuries, but I thought he legitimately look like an NFL QB in 2002 and big things were a'comin. I think alot of what was done medically for his shoulder and recovery helped Drew Brees. Simply knowing that it WAS possible for a guy to come back from that kind of shoulder injury probably gave doctors, surgeons, and physical therapists confidence to further develop it. Possibly I'm full of crap when I say that.
1 - Becht - If there was a HOF for run blocking TEs, he'd be the first guy in.
3 - Coles

I know many Panthers fans would say the '07 draft with:

1st - Jon Beason
2nd - Ryan Kalil
3rd - Charles Johnson

but I think that is only the 3rd best draft. The top two:

'01
1st - Dan Morgan
2nd - Kris Jenkins
3rd - Steve Smith

'02
1st - Julius Peppers
2nd - Deshaun Foster
3rd - Will Witherspoon

Those six guys were the heart of the team that got them to the superbowl.
