Greatest NFL first-round draft picks of each club

The third overall pick in 2004, Fitzgerald is likely a first-ballot Hall of Famer after a 17-year career in Arizona that included 11 Pro Bowls. 

Atlanta's first-round history has included Hall of Famers Claude Humphrey (1968) and Deion Sanders (1989), but it's difficult to top the impact Ryan had on the franchise.  

The Ravens franchise moved to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996 and started their new tenure with a bang, drafting future Hall of Famers Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis in the first round. 

Buffalo's history is marred with bad luck, but the team has fared well in the first round of drafts. They've selected five Hall of Famers in that round 

Like save and share

A football and basketball star out of North Carolina, Peppers was an instant star after being selected second overall in 2002. He recorded 159.5 sacks during his 17-year career 

The Bears have a rich history on both sides of the ball, but "Sweetness" remains one of the most memorable players in NFL history. Walter Payton had a tremendous 13-year career in Chicago after being selected fourth overall in 1975 

Arguably the best offensive lineman of his era, Munoz was selected third overall by the Bengals in 1980. He made 11 Pro Bowls and was named an All-Pro nine times in his 13-year career in Cincy.
