Ranking the Most Important Positions for Rebuilding a NFL Franchise

With the NFL Scouting Combine getting ready to start, teams will start to get up close looks on young players who could help improve their on field play.

For some of last year's bad teams, these young players will be the building blocks in the remodeling of a franchise.

Every year bad teams take players they hope they can build a winning team around in future years. So for an NFL in need of a total makeover, where's the best place to start?

What better way to figure it out than ask NFL teams? Okay, well not actually ask—more like study. The process into these rankings required a look at the last 10 NFL Drafts. The top 10 picks in each draft were looked at to narrow down on the teams that would be looking to "rebuild" in that year's draft.

Each pick was given a descending numerical value opposite of the number of the pick—the No. 1 pick was worth 10 points, while the No. 10 pick was worth one point and all other picks correlating in between.

The total number of points from each position was added up between all 10 years to figure out which positions NFL teams favored when trying to rebuild their rosters.
