How were the surprises included on this list chosen?
In one case, a highly regarded player went much lower than his projections indicated. Some teams blatantly neglected adding prospects at areas of extreme need. One franchise made a stunning selection at quarterback, and other passers expected to be drafted on Day 2 slid down the board and into Day 3. And the first player selected at a particular position was not who you would have expected him to be.
