The NFL Draft Quiz: When Were These HOF’s Taken?
From the disappointment on the faces of all the Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, and Chicago Bears fans to the overanalyzing ESPN anchors, the NFL Draft is one of the greatest events the NFL produces all year long. The players, both old and new, sit on the edge of their seats waiting to either hear their name being called or if their time is all but through with their team. This helps make the NFL Draft exciting and memorable.
The fans love to see who is drafted and where because no one really knows what these players are going to become once they get into the NFL. Looking back, it’s always interesting to see all the talented Hall of Famers that are passed on by team after team during the NFL Draft because no one realizes that hard work will always defeat raw talent.
The NFL Draft is an annual event that allows every team in the league to pick from the pool of college athletes in the available player pool. However, because you can't actually predict the future, it's impossible to know the type of player these kids are going to become. The media will spin everything and they are responsible for the fans' obsession with ranking incoming prospects to the NFL Draft.
Whether it's a quarterback, offensive tackle, defensive back, or an edge rusher, any NFL team has a chance to strike it rich and land a Tom Brady type, who was a sixth-round draft pick. All a team can do is scout these athletes and trust their guts on NFL Draft day.
