All 32 teams in the NFL are currently gearing up for the 2023 NFL Draft, with many talented players set to jump from the college game to the professional level.
With the draft right around the corner on April 27, the league’s general managers are incredibly busy assessing the talent in this draft class and finalizing their draft boards.
In the meantime, some interesting power ranking of general managers in the NFL has surfaced, which has sparked a lot of debate about the names that are in the top 10 on this list.

Here are some fan reactions to this list of the top general managers in the NFL:

Could someone explain to me what Brad Holmes has done better than Chris Grier

The list doesn’t get any better after this. Belichick is at 11. Bill is an awful GM, no matter how good of a coach he is.

Jerry Jones at 10 is absolutely hilarious

How does Jason Licht not make that list. Did you not see what he’s done this offseason

The general managers for the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles topping this list makes a lot of sense, as these teams were the two left 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 they can consistently put together a competitive football team.
However, the New England Patriots coming in 11th has come with a lot of criticism, as Bill Belichick is not known for doing well in the NFL Draft nor in NFL free agency, which is where general managers make a name for themselves.
Another interesting addition to this list is Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at No. 10, as he doesn’t call the shots as much as he used to with that job given to his son Stephen Jones.
Lists like this will always get a fair amount of criticism, and that’s probably why they’re always so interesting.NEXT: New Details Have Emerged On Jets' Star DT Next Potential Contract
