The Five Greatest #1 Picks Draft History

Each year there is a huge conversation about who is going to be the next best thing coming into the NFL, however some of those players live up to their potential others just flop away.

Please note three things about this list.

  1. This list was created in a chronological order.
  2. Bo Jackson was not included because he did not play in the season in which he was drafted No. 1.
  3. Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, and Cam Newton did not make the list only because they are still in the league.

5 Things to watch instead of the Pro Bowl

Personally speaking, the Pro Bowl and all other all-star games are jokes. Yes, it’s great that all of our favorite players come together for one night, but really there’s no game. No one takes the event serious. It’s just another way for the NFL to expand revenue and we, as football lovers will watch anything that has football in the description.

However, there are 7 things that will be a bit more exiting than the Pro Bowl Sunday night, which is at 8 PM EST.

1. Catch up on House of Cards. It returns February 27.


2. The Royal Rumble will be happening on the WWE Network for $9.99.
