Certain teams just come from bad football areas. Minnesota and Green Bay for example.
But I like the concept, but when the NBA did it, they didnt have 32 teams.
Here is where I see the problem for that, a kid coming out of high school who scouts would be salivating over could literally pick and choose which NFL team he wants to play for.
If that kid has an ego the size of Manhattan, he will be at Syracuse or Rutgers for three years and then off to the Jets or Giants. If its a kid on the west coast: Cal, Stanford, UCLA, and USC would dominate the talent pool and if LA ever gets a pro team, the latter two would be the top schools.
OTOH, schools like Ohio State and Michigan would be cheapened as it would mean top prospects would play for the Bengals, Browns, and Lions.
Ultimately, it would favor the bigger cities and the draft would be meaningless.
