2013 NFL Draft – Looking Back at the 32 Best Players

The 2013 NFL Draft consisted of 254 draft picks – from Eric Fisher to Justice Cunningham. How many of those 254 actually panned out? In hindsight, if teams could re-do their draft boards, what would the top 32 look like?

In order of draft pick (not in order of how I would re-rank them) here are the 32 best players from the 2013 draft, who in retrospect all would have been (at least close to) first round picks.
