    Interesting list, thanks for the link.

    Good to see our boy Chrebet is on the list, somewhere between 26-50.

    Chrebet belongs in the 51-75 group, IMO.

    according to brandt, hes the best undrafted WR on his list. Ahead of Rod Smith & Welker. London Fletcher @ 59?!, the guy remains underrated and under appreciated

    That section is listed in alphabetical order. Rod Smith was obviously better.

    Well actually he is listed alphabetically in the 51-75 Section but yeah thats just plain BS, I dont think the guy has even made a Pro Bowl yet and he had the most TACKLES in the NFL this past decade!

    It's because Old Man Gil has about a dozen players from the 40s, 50s and 60s at the top of his list.

    remember- the draft was anywhere from 12-to-17 rounds in those days....wasn't bart starr taken in the 17th round??? to make it as an UDFA even in the early 90's is saying something....

    a guy like former Jets receiver Bobby Jones from the 70's, the original wayne chrebet, who made the team in '78 as an UDFA, then went on to produce, is a major accomplishment...

    Where's the love for Bruce Harper? He was more productive then so many on that list.

    They also didn't throw the ball much back then. Weren't many black players and there were far fewer teams.

    17 rounds for 13 teams comes out to fewer players drafted in 7 rounds by 32 teams.

    The NFL was a running league but the AFL was a bomb throwing league which is what got me to be a Titan Fan in 1960..:yes:

    scouting and the draft is more exact now but the talent pool is also much greater than it was ever in the past....
