Those players passed over for the NFL draft’s coveted top spot shouldn’t be too disappointed. A look at the Nielsen/E-Poll N-Scores of the No. 1 draft picks from the past decade—as well as a review of the top 10 N-Scores of current NFL players—found that draft position rarely translates into long-term marketability.

WXYZ-TV/Channel 7 will broadcast an exclusive look inside the Detroit Lions NFL draft plans, Wednesday, April 27, from 7-8 p.m., the day before the NFL draft officially begins.
