Jarrett Payton Urges Fans To Vote For Father In NFL Draft Poll

HOFFMAN ESTATES - Chicago Slaughter Running Back Jarrett Payton is encouraging Chicago fans to vote for his dad, 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl Great Walter Payton, for the NFL's list of 75 Most Valuable Draft Picks of all time. Payton is widely viewed the greatest Chicago Bears player of all time and one of the best running backs to ever play in the NFL. "Sweetness" has always been revered by sports fans for the way he played the game and carried himself on and off the field. In celebration of the 75th NFL Draft, football enthusiasts have an opportunity to help decide the greatest draft choices of all time. Fans can vote by visiting the NFL.Com Draft MVP website; voting runs through April 18th.

According to the information posted on the website, NFL.com editors narrowed down the first 74 drafts to a list of the top 320 players, consisting of 10 players from each team. Fans begin the process of determining the Most Valuable Draft Pick by choosing between pairs of players randomly generated from the list of 320 greats (example -Walter Payton Vs. Jackie Smith). After selecting winners of 30 random matchups, fans begin to build their own Top 10 list and may continue to vote in order to make changes to their personal list as well as the All-Time Top 10 announced at the Draft. Players are listed by the team that drafted them. The top 10 greatest draft picks will be revealed during the 2010 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday, April 22 at 7:30 PM ET. The 10 Most Valuable Draft Picks will be announced during Round 1; the order of the Top 10 will be revealed following the conclusion of the Second Round of the Draft on Friday night.
