Beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to grading NFL Draft classes.

But even Stevie Wonder can look at the Kansas City Chiefs 1975 class of draft picks and declare it the absolute worst group in franchise history.

In fact, it may go beyond even Kansas City. The '75 draft class very well may be the worst draft class in the history of the NFL, no matter the year or team. There's no question it would be on the medal stand at the end of the competition.

According to NFLLockout.com - the NFLPA's primary reporting entity since the players' union decertified - the second group of players was solicited more than once by a law firm with ties to the NFL. In fact, the firm in question had to sort out an internal matter that would have violated the Rules of Professional Conduct before proceeding - as the e-mail sent to those players said, "one of our partners in our Los Angeles office has previously done work for the National Football League or its its wholly-owned subsidiaries.  Accordingly, pursuant to our internal review of this issue and the Rules of Professional Conduct, we must obtain a waiver from the NFL in order to represent players in the referenced litigation.  Requesting the waiver will alert the NFL to the players' concerns and our potential involvement relating thereto which presents tactical opportunities."
