The draft is on April 25-27, starting 15 days from now.
To help get fans fired up as the 2013 team takes further shape, we have posted pictures of 60 draft picks during the Indianapolis era and have asked fans to vote for the best all-time choice during our local era.
In early tabulation, the top 10 reads like this:
908, Peyton Manning (D1-98)
599, Andrew Luck (D1-12)
547, Reggie Wayne (D1-01)
489, Marvin Harrison (D1-96)
361, Dwight Freeney (D1-02)
358, Edgerrin James (D1-99)
322, Robert Mathis (D5-03)
295, Dallas Clark (D1-03)
272, Marshall Faulk (D1-94)
205, Antoine Bethea (D6-06)
How this shapes up at the moment is no real surprise, but take a look sometimes at a player in later rounds who had a truly noteworthy career. There are some. Many great teams are built through successes beyond the first day of the process.
In the next few days, I will feature who I think is the best player taken during our local era at 10 different positions. The stories already are written. If they reflect the vote, that’s great, but you never know.
Thanks for checking the site and voting. We love it.
