I was casually watching the Sunday night game and thought of Eli being a #1 pick. How likely are they to win a S.B. with him ... I mean pertencage wise? Then the question came ... who was the last #1 pick to actually help his team win a S.B.?

Seems like teams are better off not being quite so bad off when they start rebuilding than to draft in first position.

Drew Bledsoe, drafted 1993, assisted in 2001 Patiots SB victory.

I believe that would be Orlando Pace taken by the Rams in the 97 draft.

Just off the top of my head. I can't think of anyone who's won it after him.

Ah. Good call.

Actually, according to the question, Orlando Pace is the correct answer.

Manila brings up a good point. #1 overall does not have a good track record of bringing SB victory to the drafting team. However, this could easily be becuase to qualify for #1 overall, you have to really, really, suck.

I guess throwing the winning TD pass in the AFC championship game doesn't count for much with you, huh?

John Elway

Troy Aikman

Peyton Manning is making INDY a contender year in and year out .....


Drafting a QB 1st is usually a good start.

At least during the years that there is a consensus "blue chip" QB to take 1st (None of this Alex Smith - Tim Couch business).
