Ozzie Newsome Makes Best All-Time First Round Draft Picks List

Real life is intruding once again and making the posting light for today. For now, here's something I saw pop on Yahoo! Sports earlier today.

They've come up with a list of the best first round draft picks taken at each draft position. In the 1978 draft, Newsome was the 23rd pick in the draft. Speaking of the NFL Draft, we'll be watching this weekend to see which Bama players are taken and where they'll be going.


Ozzie: One of the greatest TEs to ever play the game.

23. Ozzie Newsome, TE, Cleveland Browns (1978)

Some might make the argument for Ty Law in this spot, but he's not in the Hall of Fame and he may never get there. Ray Guy had a great career, too, winning three Super Bowls and establishing himself as perhaps the best punter in NFL history. But come on: he's a punter. A three-time Pro Bowler who finished his career with an impressive 662 receptions and 7,980 receiving yards (and 47 touchdown catches), Newsome was one of the toughest tight ends to ever take the field. He never missed a single game in his career - 198 straight in the regular season.
