The New Orleans Saints had by far the best performance of any team in the NFL draft from 2006-2008, according to a recent study by ESPN.com. The website went back and "re-drafted" every player during that three-year stretch, then graded the teams based on the value of their picks.

The Saints earned a grade of plus-266. The next best teams were the Green Bay Packers at plus-224, the Indianapolis Colts at plus-223 and the Denver Broncos at plus-206. Only 13 NFL teams ended up with plus grades. Eighteen teams earned minus grades, including the Seattle Seahawks, who were by far the worst at minus-600.
