Which NFL teams have been the most adept at drafting quality players? Glad you asked. This is a breakdown of the teams that have drafted the most Pro Bowl players in the last 10 years (2005-2014).
Keep in mind that the player drafted by one team might have been a Pro Bowl selection for another team.
1. Dallas Cowboys -- 13
Pro Bowl players drafted:Zack Martin (year drafted: 2014), Travis Frederick (2013), Tyron Smith (2011), DeMarco Murray (2011), Dez Bryant (2010), Mike Jenkins (2008), Martellus Bennett (2008), Anthony Spencer (2007), Nick Folk (2007), Jason Hatcher (2006), DeMarcus Ware (2005), Marion Barber (2005), Jay Ratliff (2005).
It wasn't until after signing with the Chicago Bears that Bennett became the offensive threat that the Cowboys envisioned when the team used a second-round pick on him in the 2008 draft. In back-to-back drafts, the Cowboys got one of the game's best receivers and one of the game's best running backs. Unfortunately for Cowboys fans, the team wasn't able to afford to keep both.
2 (tie). San Francisco 49ers -- 11
The skinny: The 49ers built a Super Bowl contender through the draft, only to see it dismantled during one of the most bizarre offseasons a team has encountered in recent memory. Willis was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, but -- at 30 years old -- opted to retire from the game while still in the prime of his career. Smith was the No. 1 overall pick in 2005, but it wasn't until 2013 as a member of the Chiefs that he became a Pro Bowl pick.
2 (tie). Kansas City Chiefs -- 11
The skinny: The Chiefs have ranked in the top five in points allowed on defense the past two seasons, and Pro Bowl talent that the team drafted has contributed to that success. Poe has been a Pro Bowl pick the last two years. Houston -- last season's sack leader -- has been a Pro Bowl pick the last three years. Berry -- a Pro Bowl pick in three of his first four seasons -- has had a promising NFL career put on the back burner due to Hodgkin lymphoma. Johnson was a three-time Pro Bowl pick. Hali has been a Pro Bowl pick the last four seasons.
4 (tie). Houston Texans -- 10
The skinny: Watt -- a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year -- has been a Pro Bowl selection the last three seasons and has emerged as the most disruptive defensive force the league has seen in some time. The Texans got three future Pro Bowlers in the 2006 draft, a haul that helped the franchise reach the playoffs in 2011 and 2012, which was also the team's first-ever division title season.
4 (tie). Seattle Seahawks -- 10
The skinny: The Seahawks got four players who became Pro Bowl selections from just one draft class -- 2010, which was the best team draft class of the past 10 years. That's the most of any of the teams' draft classes in that timeframe. Forsett became a Pro Bowler but not until last season, his first with the Baltimore Ravens and one in which he rushed for 1,266 yards, a total well above his best with the Seahawks (619 in 2009).
6 (tie). Denver Broncos -- 9
The skinny: Miller and Thomas are each three-time Pro Bowl picks. Marshall and Dumervil were draft bargains in the fourth round in 2006, and have earned multiple Pro Bowl selections apiece. Before going to the Bears and leading the league in interceptions twice, Cutler was a Pro Bowl pick in 2008 after posting a career-high 4,526 yards passing for the Broncos.
6 (tie). Green Bay Packers -- 9
The skinny: It should be noted that the Packers had three undrafted players -- Sam Shields, Tramon Williams and John Kuhn -- who were also Pro Bowl selections. Three of the nine players the Packers drafted in the last 10 years who became Pro Bowlers were wide receivers. That should come as no surprise because of the rise to excellence of the team's first-round draft pick in 2005. Collins was an emerging talent at safety, getting three consecutive Pro Bowl nods before a neck injury suffered in 2011 prematurely ended his career.
6 (tie). New Orleans Saints -- 9
The skinny: Nicks, Bushrod and Evans helped form a formidable offensive line that was a crucial cog in the Saints' championship machine in 2009. Ingram -- a first-round draft choice and 2009 Heisman Trophy winner -- hasn't exactly lived up to expectations, but career highs in yards (964) and touchdowns (9) helped earn him a Pro Bowl nod in 2014.
6 (tie). San Diego Chargers -- 9
The skinny: Stuckey earned his first Pro Bowl nod last season after originally being named a first alternate for New England Patriots special-teams maven Matthew Slater, who had other obligations. Weddle has become a Pro Bowl regular in recent years. One of Jackson's three Pro Bowl nods came while as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
10 (tie). Chicago Bears -- 8
The skinny: During his nine-year career, Hester has been one of the NFL's most dangerous return specialists. Hester was a three-time Pro Bowler while with the Bears, went three seasons without being picked, and then made a Pro Bowl return in 2014 as a member of the Atlanta Falcons. Long, meanwhile, has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his two NFL seasons.
10 (tie). Cleveland Browns -- 8
The skinny: Thomas is building a resume that will make him a strong consideration for enshrinement in Canton, earning Pro Bowl spots in each of his eight NFL seasons. Mack scored one of the most memorable touchdowns in Pro Bowl history. The Browns sacrificed a second-round pick in the 2013 draft to get Gordon in the 2012 supplemental draft. He was a Pro Bowl pick after posting a league-leading 1,646 yards receiving in 2013.
10 (tie). Minnesota Vikings -- 8
The skinny: Peterson has been a Pro Bowl selection in six of his eight NFL seasons -- only exceptions are last year and 2011, when he tore his ACL. Rice was a Pro Bowl pick in 2009, thanks in large part to the arrival of quarterback Brett Favre. Rice had career highs in receptions (83), yards (1,312) and touchdowns (8) that season.
10 (tie). New England Patriots -- 8
10 (tie). Pittsburgh Steelers -- 8
Just missed: Cincinnati Bengals -- 7
The skinny:Vontaze Burfict was an undrafted rookie free-agent signing by the Bengals following the 2012 draft, and he was a Pro Bowl selection a season later. Green has been a Pro Bowler in each of his four NFL seasons. Joseph has been a two-time Pro Bowl pick, but it wasn't until after he left Cincinnati and signed with the Houston Texans in 2011 that he got to play in the NFL's all-star showcase.
