In celebration of the 75th NFL Draft, which begins on Thursday, April 22 at 7:30 pm ET, fans have the opportunity to vote on NFL.com to select the 75 Most Valuable Draft Picks of all time.
10 players from each team were selected by NFL.com editors to compile a list of 320 players from the first 74 drafts. For the Detroit Lions: Jerry Ball, Lem Barney, Lomas Brown, Jack Christiansen, Yale Larry, Alex Karras, Barry Sanders, Charlie Sanders, Joe Schmidt and Wayne H. Walker, have all made the cut.
Fans will begin the process of determining the Most Valuable Draft Pick by choosing between pairs of players randomly generated from the list of 320 greats. After selecting winners of 30 random matchups, fans will begin to build their own Top 10 list. Fans may continue to vote in order to make changes to their personal Top 10 list as well as the All-Time Top 10 announced at the Draft. Users then may share their lists and their head-to-head winners on Facebook.
The results of picks 11-75 will be announced from April 19-April 22 on NFL.com and NFL Network. The Top 10 greatest Draft picks will be revealed during the 2010 NFL Draft.
