"No. 1 NFL Draft Picks" History - The best No. 1 NFL Draft Picks in history is said to be Bruce Smith from the Buffalo Bills in 1985. He is said to be one of the most creative pass rushers and was feared, although he never did win a Super Bowl championship. The next best was Peyton Manning from the Indianapolis Colts in 1998. When he was signed to the team they knew that he was going to be good, but he shocked us all when he re-wrote the record books. Yahoo has the top five best picks in history.
There have certainly been a few bad picks as well, but where do we start? David Carr from the Houston Texans in 2002 is one that springs to mind. He was not a solid quarterback, and was a mistake, which is why he was often left as a backup. Next up we have JaMarcus Russell from the Oakland Raiders in 2007. He was used to playing the old style by going long and deep, but the game had changed, and he was unable to adapt. For more details on the worst No.1 NFL Draft Picks visit Yahoo Sports.
