Everyone’s got their own twist on NFL Mock Drafts.
Well, we here at Bleacher Report have a few of our own, and one of them is this: The Hall of Fame edition.
Imagine that it’s draft day, but instead of college juniors and seniors, your team has the chance to draft someone who will go on to be one of the greatest players in NFL history—assuming as we are, of course, that he is guaranteed to turn out exactly as he did.
That might be even tougher than the actual draft. But using the 2010 NFL Draft order and each team’s “needs,” that’s exactly what we’re going to try to do here.
For example, if you’re the Rams and you need a quarterback, who do you take? Montana? Unitas? Elway? Who fits the scheme best?
Likewise, the Redskins seemingly need a franchise left tackle, but who would be their choice? Would it be maybe Anthony Munoz, or Jackie Slater, or maybe Gary Zimmerman?
You’ll find out our opinion on those conundrums shortly.
Before you do, know there are just two caveats to this draft: all players selected will be based on need—i.e., the Lions won’t be taking, say, John Elway—and every selection will be a Hall of Famer.
And now, on with the draft.
