ESPN Stats & Information has ranked all NFL players drafted in the modern draft (1967 to 2008) based on their performance during their NFL careers -- regardless of how they fared with the team that drafted them. Insider will count down each team's best draft class (seeded 1 through 32), then conduct a tournament to determine the best class of all time.
The year of the offensive lineman: 1968 (194 total points, 110 offensive linemen drafted)
One of the distinctive parts of the ESPN Stats & Information draft ranking system is that it doesn't overly discriminate by position. That means, unlike in the real game, offensive linemen have just as much a chance to score as a quarterback or a wide receiver.
We start counting down the best draft picks in NFL history.
