You couldn't televise it, but it would place an emphasis on money management and talent identification.

BTW, Deacon Jones (186th overall) and Bart Starr (200th overall) would have been drafted in the current draft system (256 picks). What you have to remember is that there were fewer teams (12-14) in the NFL in the 50's and 60's, so the rounds were much shorter.
Excellent point. I was just looking at the number of rounds, not the number of picks.
