All 32 teams in the NFL are currently gearing up for the 2023 NFL Draft, with many talented players ready to make the jump from the college game to the professional level.
With the draft set to take place on April 27, the league’s general managers have been incredibly busy assessing the talent in this draft class and finalizing their draft boards.
Meanwhile, some interesting power rankings of general managers in the NFL have come to the fore, sparking a lot of debate over which names make the top 10 on this list.

The list doesn’t get better after that. Belichick is at 11. Bill is a terrible GM, no matter how good a coach he is.

Jason Licht doesn’t make a how-to list. haven’t you seen what he’s done this season

The general managers of the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles top the list, which makes a lot of sense, as these teams were the only two teams standing in the Super Bowl.
All of these general managers outside of the Los Angeles Rams, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers had playoff teams last year and have shown that they can consistently put together a competitive football team.
However, there has been much criticism of the New England Patriots coming in 11th, as Bill Belichick is not known to do well in the NFL Draft nor in NFL free agency, where general managers make a name for themselves.
Another interesting addition to this list is Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who ranks No. 10, as he doesn’t call the shots as much with the job given to his son, Stefon Jones.
Lists like this always get a lot of criticism, and that’s probably why they’re always so interesting.
