Atlanta Falcons - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

The city of Atlanta landed an NFL franchise in 1966 and their very first #1 was to no surprise a quarterback named Randy Johnson out of Texas A&I University. After going through many drafts of picking QBs, it wasn’t until 2001 when the Falcons drafted the dangerous Michael Vick that they had their first franchise quarterback. These days Matt “Matty Ice” Ryan has been at the ...

Arizona Cardinals - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

This team that now calls the west coast home began their franchise history in the city of Chicago before relocating to St. Louis and then to Arizona where they have been since. With an NFL start in 1936, the Cards are one of the league’s oldest teams. Maybe this man would have been the Cardinals’ greatest first-round pick ever, but in 1965 despite being drafted by St. Louis, Al ...

Baltimore Ravens - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

As we look back on the Baltimore Ravens' first-round draft history it is important to keep in mind this team was the old Cleveland Browns before owner Art Modell moved them to Baltimore. After relocating, with their very first draft process, the Ravens had two spots in the first round and made the most of both. With the fourth overall pick, they drafted Jonathan Ogden who would ...

Buffalo Bills - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

The Bills missed a chance to go to the Super Bowl this past season by losing to the Kansas City Chiefs. Buffalo will continue to seek that elusive Lombardi Trophy that escaped their grasp four times before when they made the big dance. Those four Super Bowl teams the Bills put together dominated the AFC during that time and if not for Scott Norwood, the city of Buffalo would ha ...

Carolina Panthers - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

As an expansion team, the Carolina Panthers have been in the draft process only since 1995. Their first two picks that year did not pay dividends. They were Tyrone Poole and Blake Brockermeyer, although Kerry Collins was not a terrible quarterback also drafted in that first-round. The Panthers did find success as a team getting to a Super Bowl not once but twice unfortunately l ...

Cincinnati Bengals - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

When not being called the “Bungals” the Cincinnati Bengals have assembled some pretty good teams. After all, they did make two Super Bowl appearances only to lose them both. Joe Burrow may very well one day be known as the best Bengals quarterback in history but for now, that honor belongs to Kenny Anderson. But Anderson was not a first-round draft pick. Carson Palmer was and h ...

Cleveland Browns - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

Before re-joining the NFL in 1999, the Cleveland Browns had some formidable years. The “new” Browns from 1999 until this year were a laughing stock of the league. This year, however, they made a triumphant return to the top of the NFL with some very good talent. But take a look at their history and the Browns at one time were consistently one of the top teams in the NFL. With t ...

Chicago Bears - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

The Bears have one of the longest draft histories in the NFL given they are also one of the oldest teams. Beginning in 1936, Chicago has yet to find a replacement franchise quarterback for the legendary Sid Luckman. There have been tons of QBs along the way, but none have reached the level of being an elite quarterback. Current signal-caller Mitch Trubisky has been under the gu ...

Dallas Cowboys - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

Tom Landry is well associated with the Dallas Cowboys given the fact he was their first head coach in history when they made their debut in 1961. Landry would be on the sidelines for the next 28 seasons. If not for the Pittsburgh Steelers dynasty of the 1970s, the Cowboys probably would have been the best team in the NFL let alone becoming known as “America’s Team.” Landry buil ...

Denver Broncos - Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

Think of the Denver Broncos and the first name that comes to mind is John Elway. Do we need to go on? Of course, for those who don’t know the back story on Elway’s drafting in 1983, he was picked by the Colts but refused to go there. So he made sure a trade was worked up so that he would be traded after Baltimore selected him. The rest is history on his Hall of Fame career. Is ...
