With the tenth pick: Hall of Fame running backs highlight the NFL Draft at tenth pick

A look at the players selected in the NFL Draft at pick 10.

The NFL draft, instituted in 1937, has served as the building block for franchises. It started as an attempt to ensure each team had a fair shot to land college talent, since college players were considered free agents before the draft began. ESPN began televising the draft in 1980 and it now has grown into a three-day affair. 

In preparation for the NFL draft, scheduled for April 23 to 25, we are taking a closer look at the history of the top 10 picks, with plenty of help from pro-football-reference.com. From Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes to Hall of Famer Jerome Bettis, here's a closer look at the history of the No. 10 pick.
