And Bob Dole sees that Donnie continues to get snubbed by being ranked #78.
Bob Dole is convinced that will change by this time next year...<P>

A #1 overall pick--well, I guess he should be pretty high
A #4 overall pick--same applies
A #19 overall pick. - logical
How many #1 overall picks has Indy had in the last 15 years? I would be very interested in their average draft position in the first round during this time.
I guess all those 1-3 win seasons pay off after a while dont they?

Good point KCTitus.
Bob Dole also knows that three talented individuals does not a championship team make.
I disagree with Manning being #1. He is one of the top QBs in the league for sure, but as far as #1 "player", I don't know about that.

I intrigued myself, so I thought I would go and look up the actual draft records from 1985-1999.
Here's what I found:
Indy had 14 first round picks during those years. In one year, 1992, they had the #1 and #2 OVERALL picks. During those years, Indy had the #1 overall pick 3 different years and had the #2 overall pick 3 other years except for 1992 where they had both. This was an average draft position of 8.1
KC had 14 first round picks during those years. We did not have a #1 overall pick, but did have a #2 overall in 1988. We only had one other pick inside the top 5 in 1989--DT. Our average draft position was 17.0
