    Manning, Sanders, LT, and Payton were all top 5 picks, how are they great draft picks? Great players, absolutely, but obvious draft picks.

    I guess the one thing you can argue for Peyton is it was Manning of Leaf that year....To bad they made they right choice.

    Well, heres the final results. Bradys #8. Debate away.

    If you watch the video highlites, theres a quick 90 second bit on Brady. Nice bit about what he has done and how he wanted to make all the GM's and Coaches think the made a terrible decision not taking him.

    The higher ranked Mannings "video bit" is his Superbowl 44 highlites, and includes his pick 6.

    No way. For the value, theres no better pick than tom.

    Theres also no way peyton is above him. Peytons a choke artist.

    No Jersey Selected

    Did anybody try voting in this? I sat here and clicked for an hour while my wife and I watched TV one night. At the end of the night I had seen Forrest Gregg about 5 times and Tom Brady not once. It kept a score of your favorite draft pick and somehow it said I had Staubach, apparently because I clicked him as better than the six or so other guys they put him against.

    The results look more like a best Modern Players vote (in which Brady's place can be debated as correct or not) than a Best Draft vote.

    #12 Jersey

    Absolute joke Brady isn't #1.

    It's specfically says draft picks, which obviously the majority of the league is so it should actually account for draft value.

    No quarrel with Montana at 1, big quarrel with Brady at 8. Just incompetent analysis.
