Check out this article I wrote for FootballNation.com. I highlight the top 10 NFL Draft picks that have come from the seventh round. It spans a wide range all the way from the 1950’s to 2000’s. Take a look and share/comment as you wish.

I will have the Board broken down into tiers and draft projections a few days before the Draft and it will be easy to cross check as the picks are coming in. floyd
