The NFL draft is designed to help provide some degree of equality in the National Football League and to make it easier for struggling teams to acquire future Hall of Famers.
With 32 first-round picks in each draft, however, every team has the opportunity to find a great player every year if it knows where to look. As a result, nearly every team has drafted a legend early at least once in its franchise history.
The best first-round draft picks in every team's history encompass playmakers on both offense and defense and showcase some of the greatest players in the modern era and those who have stood the test of time.
Those who were selected in the supplemental draft, even if a first-round selection was used, are not included.
