NFL draft classes are not created equal.
Some classes are loaded with talent, producing multiple Hall of Fame inductees and Pro Bowlers, while other classes are devoid of such excellence.
The purpose of this list is to rank the top 25 classes in the history of the NFL draft.
The criteria I will be using to determine these rankings is simple: The classes with the most Hall of Famers and Pro Bowlers are ranked the highest.
Where it gets tricky is when you start getting into the late-90s and beyond. Many of the players drafted in those classes are still playing, so I will do my best to project Hall of Famers out of those classes.
Also, please note that the first Pro Bowl wasn't played until 1951.
I hope you enjoy the read as I take this trip through history to determine which NFL draft classes stand above the rest.
