The #1 pick goes to the Super Bowl Champion. Now this would be another incentive to winning the Super Bowl.
I know it is way out there.....but I guarantee if the Champ gets the top pick, players and teams would be going all out to win, even moreso than they are now.
I think this would be the worst possible way to handle it.
Superbowl winners have QBs.
QBs are the end-all, be-all in the NFL.
You'd essentially have a scenario where Superbowl champions are ransoming off the #1 overall pick every year, fleecing the rest of the league and acquiring a multitude of high picks and widening the gap between the elite and the bottom feeders.
Imagine if the Giants, who have a QB, just auctioned off Luck. They'd have received enough to stock their roster to remain competitive for a number of years.
