The 2007 Draft brought Calvin Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Joe Thomas, Patrick Willis, and Darrelle Revis into the league along with Marshawn Lynch, Jon Beason, Joe Staley, Eric Weddle, Ryan Kalil, Jacoby Jones, and Marshall Yanda.
Even though Jamarcus Russell -- one of the worst #1 picks in NFL history -- was in this class, there were 5 potential HoFers in the first 13 picks. Even without an elite QB, this class did not lack in star power.

23 members of the 2011 draft made the Pro Bowl at least once, and 14 of them were 1st Round picks. That's impressive, but not as impressive as the 2001 class that had 34 Pro Bowlers, 17 of which were 1st Round picks.
The 2001 class featured future Hall of Fame players LaDanian Tomlinson, Drew Brees, and Steve Hutchinson, and also included Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith, Santana Moss, Chad Johnson, Richard Seymour, Matt Light, Justin Smith, Todd Heap, Adrian Wilson and Kyle Vanden Bosch. It is, easily, the top class of the last 25 years.Source(s): Sham Newton is a gutless punk.
