Tackle Eric Fisher NFL's No. 1 draft pick
Quarterbacks taken first in 10 of last 12 drafts
The Kansas City Chiefs chose offensive tackle Eric Fisher of Central Michigan as the NFL's No. 1 overall draft pick of 2013.
A quarterback was taken at No. 1 in each of the four previous drafts and in 10 of the last 12.
The No. 2 pick was made by Jacksonville. The Jaguars took tackle Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M.
Defensive end Dion Jordan of Oregon, was taken by the Miami Dolphins as the third pick.
The Philadelphia Eagles had the fourth pick. They chose tackle Lane Johnson of Oklahoma.
BYU's Ziggy Ansah, a defensive end, was taken as the fifth overall pick by the Detroit Lions.
For months on end, team scouts, coaches, and officials do their best to evaluate young college talent from across the country in the hope of picking the right players that they hope will turn into superstars.
In the course of just three days, the NFL's 32 teams get to pick in seven rounds, which amounts to over 250 players being selected.
While many of the aforementioned players pan out and turn into stars, a large number of them flop on the biggest stage.
Think of 1998. The number one pick was Peyton Manning, who went on to become a four-time NFL Most Valuable Player and Super Bowl champion.
But the number two pick that year was Ryan Leaf -- arguably the biggest bust in NFL history after he was released just a few years into his career.
Do the latter rounds matter? Most definitely, as one of the most famous diamonds in the rough -- Tom Brady -- was picked in the sixth round of the 2000 Draft and 199th overall.
Brady has since guided the New England Patriots to five Super Bowl appearances, winning three of them.
While the Super Bowl has always been "the" event in the U.S., the NFL draft has steadily gathered more steam through the decades to be what it is today.
The first one -- held in 1936 -- was held in Philadelphia and featured names written on a blackboard from which teams chose from.
Fast forward to the present day. The event is held in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, with rabid NFL fans allowed to attend, and most importantly, all three days televised nationally with non-stop coverage.
