NFL fans are eagerly awaiting the 2011 NFL draft, set to kick off in less than two weeks.
You can digest all the mock drafts and scouting reports you want, but to understand the NFL draft in it's entirety, you must know some of the history behind it.
With that in mind, I've ranked each No. 1 overall pick of the last 25 years.
This list includes one Hall of Famer, and a few others who will certainly be enshrined when their time comes.
Of the last 25 No. 1 overall picks, seven of them have won a Super Bowl, and two of them have won multiple rings.
Not surprisingly, more than half (14) of the last 25 No. 1 overall picks were quarterbacks.
Now onto the list. Keep in mind these rankings are my opinions based on their NFL accomplishments.
