We did not necessarily factor in their pro potential or how they fared in the NFL.
We tried to keep it to a starting team on each side of the ball, but we did add an extra receiver (since many teams use three wide receiver sets) and one athlete -- a player who was either listed as an athlete coming out of high school or whose role wasn't limited to the traditional use of the position they were listed at -- on the team.
