The NFL draft is known for having its own sorts of drama.  Fans watching are just waiting to see if his or her own team is drafting the next franchise player. 

For those who are watching into the later rounds, the ever-intriguing late-round “steal” is the topic of debate. 

When it gets deeper into the draft, players’ abilities start to blend in with each other, making them nearly identical to their counterparts.  All the players are athletic, and all of them have played for years.  The question that coaches and scouts ask themselves is whether or not this player can help the team.  Those players are not necessarily picked up because the scouts see them becoming the next Terrell Suggs or Peyton Manning

Here are some great “steals” from past NFL drafts.
