After previously investigating the worst draft picks by position from 2005 to 2009 it's now time to reveal best selection made at each spot over that time frame. Once again I have only gone up to 2009 as I feel a lone NFL season is not enough to judge a player good or bad.
As you will soon see each and every 1st round pick has the potential to be a lucrative selection, some much more so than others. From unlikely draft day falls to bold apparent reaches, there are plenty of opportunities for every organization to land a potential franchise cornerstone at some point during the draft's initial 32 picks.
In compiling this list I have taken into consideration primarily a players performance on the gridiron, but have also given weight to the impact the player has had on the organization both on and off the field, his relative value to his franchise, and lastly his effect on the players around him.
What follows should give fans of all franchises hope that April 28th will see the addition of a player that will help their team become or remain a playoff contender.
