Proposal for Style guide for NFL Draft Pages

The current series of pages have all been closely formatted to be similar. Wikilink First occurrence only, tables sortable, use of full team names, use of positions names not abbreviations, use of short acceptable names of Colleges. 1936 - 1999 are very similar in style across the series. Obviously the later 200X Drafts have been featured or A class lists. Many of the early era lists are in need of much help in the openings and valid player links. Addition of Images would be nice for those articles which have none.

Proposal for style follows:
