1998. Peyton Manning (Pick: Peyton Manning)
The 1998 NFL Draft saw one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history (Randy Moss) and a future Hall of Fame defensive back (Charles Woodson) taken in the first round, but the Indianapolis Colts got this one correct by selecting quarterback Peyton Manning with the #1 overall pick.
Manning sent an NFL record with 55 touchdown passes in one season, and throwing for 5,477 yards in a season. He won five MVP awards, was selected to 14 Pro Bowls, and named to the All-Pro team 10 times.
