Could the Cleveland Browns’ draft history be described any better?
Within their illustrious history, the Cleveland Browns have selected No. 1 overall three times (Bobby Garrett-1954, Tim Couch-1999 and Courtney Brown-2000). These three prospects never turned into Hall of Famers for the Browns’ franchise, but Cleveland has selected four eventual Hall of Famers through the NFL Draft (Doug Atkins-1953, Jim Brown-1957, Paul Warfield-1964 and Ozzie Newsome-1978).
