  1. It’s easy to pick on the two #1 picks in 1999 & 2000 but those teams were so bad, you could almost make an excuse for their underwhelming performance. I vote for Craig Powell who played 12 games then went to the military. I remember the Browns really wanted Kyle Brady and when the Jets swooped in and took him, it left the Browns scrambling. My next vote is for “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell who scored 3 TDs in 4 seasons. Who drafts a FB in the top 10?!


  2. Going to go one really old school, one a little more recent

    1) 1955 first round pick, center, out of Oklahoma, Kurt Burris… never played a game in the NFL, choosing instead to play 5 years in the CFL.

    2) 1987 first round pick, linebacker, out of Duke, Mike Junkin. Schottenheimer called him a “Mad Dog in a Meat Market”. Yeah, he played 20 games over the course of 3 years and was out of football…
