In 1970, the Steelers nabbed Hall of Fame WR Lynn Swann in the first round, HOF LB Jack Lambert in the second, HOF WR John Stallworth in the third and HOF C Mike Webster in the fifth. Is this the best draft class of all time? Or what about the Redskins in 1981. They started by building the foundation of one of the best lines in NFL history by taking OT Mark May in the first round and C Russ Grimm in the second. They also landed DE Dexter Manley in the fourth, WR Charlie Brown in the seventh and TE Clint Didier in the 12th. Here's a ranking, from 1-20, of the best draft classes since 1970.
