The Worst: Courtney Brown
The No. 1 pick in the 2000 draft, Courtney Brown was supposed to be a dominant force along the defensive line. He was supposed to wreak havoc on opposing offenses. He did a decent enough job when he was on the field, but not what you would expect from your No. 1 overall pick.
He also had injury problems, and he was never able to live up to what was expected of him. His NFL career lasted just six years, and he recorded more than five sacks in a season just once (six of them, in 2003).
Brady Quinn: With his free-fall in the 2007 NFL draft, the Browns decided to make a trade with the Cowboys to get back into the first round and take what they viewed as a franchise QB. This cost the Browns their second round pick in 2007, as well as their first round pick the following year. As it turned out, Quinn was not worth those picks.
After a holdout his rookie season, he was constantly locked into a battle with Derek Anderson for the starting position. He started three games in 2008 and nine in 2009, but ended his career in Cleveland with just a 64.4 QB rating while completing 53.1 percent of his passes.
He spent 2012 trying to prove he could still be an NFL quarterback with the Chiefs, but they went just 1-7 in his eight starts.
