  • Historic Draft Rankings Request

    9 posters did a historical NFL draft. It's now complete and they're asking you to rank the teams 1-9 from best to worst. Only educated football fans vote please. No trolls.

    Also, players should be factored on by their careers as a whole. For example, DeMarcus Ware could end up being a future HOF'r, but in a historical draft he's terrible because he's only played 5 professional seasons. NFL and AFL seasons should be accounted for. Also, this is based on how you think these teams would do in real life, not a fantasy or video game team. You must rank all 9 teams 1-9 from best to worst in order to be eligible to vote, and no one in the draft is allowed to vote. You must also have at least 100 posts.

    And again, you are voting based on what these players/coaches have done SO FAR in their careers, NOT what they will end up doing.

      Holy crap that is a lot to process... Teams 4, 6 and 8 stand out to me a little bit... after that it gets real tough though. If I had to put them in order from best to worst, its..


      Its hard to sy how each team would match up with eachother though, but If I had to rank them, I think that's how it'd go. I think 4,6, and 8 are a little bit above the rest, and 1 and 3 are a little below...
