1. Ryan Grigson, Indianapolis Colts
Grigson replaced an NFL legend in Bill Polian as GM of the Colts and quickly got them from a 2-14 team a season ago into a playoff contender a year later. He hit home runs with Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Coby Fleener, and Dwayne Allen in the draft, hired the right coaches in Chuck Pagano and Bruce Arians, and was able to convince veteran free agents like Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis to stick around instead of jumping to a more established veteran teams. You wouldn’t recognize Grigson’s face. You might not know his name. He’s probably fine with that. 2. John Schneider, Seattle Seahawks
People laughed at Seattle’s 2012 draft. One that included a guy who was considered a “reach” in Bruce Irvin with the first round pick, a little known linebacker named Bobby Wagner in the second round, and an undersized quarterback in the third. All three players, most importantly Wilson, have been absolute home runs. - Peter Schrager
