All-time fantasy draft: Brady ranks No. 1 overall

With all of this talk about the NFL Draft, it's natural for fantasy football owners to get a little bit fired up for another NFL season.

Being a fan of historical facts and statistical success, I decided to do a little research and create the first-ever one-man, three-round, all-time draft. Rather than look at career numbers, which can be a bit deceptive for players with longer careers, I've based this draft on the greatest single seasons from 1960-2007.

While career statistical success was part of the total equation, it didn't count for more than what a player did in that one memorable season. For example, no one would argue that Gale Sayers was more valuable than some of the backs that made our draft, but his best single-season totals didn't surpass those runners included.

Each numbered position of the draft will represent an individual team, so no more than one quarterback, two running backs or two wide receivers will be selected for each roster. The draft is based on's standard scoring system that rewards one point for each 25 passing yards, 10 rushing and receiving yards and six points for all touchdowns.
