The snake draft is to try to make it fair for people. In professional sports it doesn't need to be a fair. The championship team shouldn't have just as good of a chance to draft as many good players as the worst team.
Yes teams do tank seasons. However I don't think it happens as much in the NFL as other sports. In the Browns case last year, yeah the front office intentionally threw the season before it even started. However it's not like the players weren't trying or trying to lose. Even up until the last came you see bad teams win. Shoot i wanted the Bengals to tank their season but those dang guys decided to win a couple in December. It just doesn't happen as often in the nfl.
