NFL Draft history: Talented but few Hall of Fame players taken with the seventh pick

The seventh pick in the NFL draft has yielded only two Hall of Fame players, so far. Find out who they are, and the player that will likely join them soon.

The NFL draft, instituted in 1937, has served as the building block for franchises.
