It’s Draft Day!

It’s Draft Day!

Ten #1 Picks and the Colleges they went to…

The NFL began plucking the best players College Football had to offer going back to the first draft in 1936.  The Philadelphia Eagles chose the first Heisman Trophy winner in history, Jay Berwanger, out of the University of Chicago as the overall #1 pick.  Draft Day has become one of the most highly anticipated days of the year for football fans and this year is no different.  To get you in the mood for the festivities, Asgard Press threw some darts at the all-time list of overall #1 draft choices and posted some old pics of those along with the Collegiate Calendars of the school they attended.  Hope you like them and enjoy the draft!
