The Impact of the Past Five NFL Drafts

When NFL teams draft their future players on April 28-30 at the 2011 NFL Draft, they'll try and mimic the successes of the past two Super Bowl champions.

According to Matt Maiocco of, the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints have drafted the best in the last five years. Maiocco examined the drafts from 2006-2010 and ranked the teams based on their successes and failures.

Maiocco's study took into consideration: where teams selected, how many star players were acquired via free agency or trades, top of the draft hits and misses, late-round gems and how the players drafted contributed to wins and losses.
