Best Number One Pick for Every Team in NFL Draft History

The 2021 NFL draft is approaching and the Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock. For the first time in the team’s short history, the Jags own the league’s first overall pick in the selection process. It is the consensus of most that Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence will be this year’s number one pick and will take over at quarterback in Jacksonville. If the Jaguars in fact draft Lawr ...

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 ...
