It has been more than a year since the 2010 NFL Draft took place, and we have had a chance to see what some players can do on a professional level.
That would make right now an excellent time to review last year's draft class and determine the top 10 MVP's.
While making this list, I used the following three characteristics to rank the players:
1. Overall Skill. This one is fairly obvious. It just means how good someone is at what they do. Example: Maurkice Pouncey, in this category, is judged by his ability to snap the ball and block.
2. Importance of Position. This category is used because some positions have greater impacts on the game than others, therefore providing more value to a team.
One instance of this is comparing Sam Bradford and Eric Berry.
Even though Berry is a better safety than Bradford is a quarterback right now, Bradford ranks higher because a quarterback is the most important position on the field, and a free safety does not have as big an impact on the game.
3. Character. This is a combination of one's off-field issues, commitment to the game and leadership skills. Example: Dez Bryant's stock is hurt by this category, while Tim Tebow's is helped.
Let's reexamine the 2010 NFL Draft class to discover the 10 Most Valuable Players.
