Vote: Who should your team take?

SportsNation staff

You've read all the mock drafts and analysis about who your team will take. But who should they take?

We took the brainpower of ESPN's draft gurus, the word on the street, the Internet rumors, the coachspeak and the draftees' sound bites and threw them all in a blender. Out came the top options for each team.

Find your favorite team, cast your vote, and see how your opinion stacks up with that of the rest of your fellow football fans in SportsNation.

Stories from the draft room
Check out Greg Garber's look at what goes on in NFL draft rooms:

  • Working the room
    Some teams have rooms devoted to the draft year-round, others take over a conference room for a month.

  • In or out: who's in the room?
    Some teams have as few as four people in their draft room and some invite the whole staff.

  • Who's in charge?
    The ultimate decision always comes down to one person.

  • The Best Draft Ever?
    The Steelers' 1974 draft landed them Jack Lambert, Mike Webster, Lynn Swann and John Stallworth.
