Just to pick away at a few of these, the BROWNS really didn't have that many R1 or many HOF players, some were from the AAFC days:

3. The last Browns first round pick to make the Hall of Fame......I always think Ozzie, Warfield (from Warren, OH, I remember him), J. Brown going backward

4. The first Browns first round pick to make the HOF  (remember, they started drafting in 1950)......Otto Graham era?

6. The Browns first round pick to have played the most games in the NFL.....has to be Lou the toe Groza

7. The Browns first round pick that was named to the most  AP  All Pro First Teams.......J. Brown, Groza? (or Warfield? )

8. The Browns first round pick that was named to the most Pro Bowls....... J. Brown or is that too obvious?

Ozzie is the correct answer

4. The first Browns first round pick to make the HOF  (remember, they started drafting in 1950)......Otto Graham era?

No, read the question....the Browns did not start drafting in the NFL draft until 1950

6. The Browns first round pick to have played the most games in the NFL.....has to be Lou the toe Groza

No, it doesn't....because Groza was not drafted.  (he was a FA signed by the Browns while in the AAFC)

7. The Browns first round pick that was named to the most  AP  All Pro First Teams.......J. Brown, Groza? (or Warfield? )

I will give you this one because you said JB first.

8. The Browns first round pick that was named to the most Pro Bowls....... J. Brown or is that too obvious? 

Apparently n ot...because JB is incorrect.

I know a bunch of good nondrafted players came over from the 1946 - 1949 AAFC BROWNS team, the "Otto era".

......hey I was born in 1950, don't remember that year!

This was not that hard.  You guys were just that lazy.   Here are the answers:

Here are some questions all about former Browns first round draft picks.   Name the player(s) involved. 

 

1. RB, played for the Browns for 3 years, then took 6 years off (may have gone to play in Canada)...then came back for a single season with Broncos in AFL.

This was the Browns first ever draft pick as an NFL member:   Ken Carpenter.

 

2. He is as good at this stage of his career as were John Elway, Peyton Manning, Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman.

I was referring here to Baker Mayfield.   #1 overall pick QB.   Above I listed the #1 pick QBs who are in the HOF...or certain to make it in Peyton's place.

 

3. The last Browns first round pick to make the Hall of Fame

Ozzie Newsome, chosen in 1978

 

4. The first Browns first round pick to make the HOF  (remember, they started drafting in 1950)

This is Doug Atkins, Browns first round pick in 1953....its just that he was traded to the Bears where he had his HOF career.

 

5. The two Browns first round picks to never take a snap in the NFL.

This was hard:   Harry Agannis  1952.....chose instead to play baseball...and was  a member of the Red Sox for some years.   And Kurt Burris.  Apparently wasn't very good,  Did not play in the NFL, but played about 5 years in Canada.

 

6. The Browns first round pick to have played the most games in the NFL

8. The Browns first round pick that was named to the most Pro Bowls.

Joe Thomas   10 years, 10 Pro Bowls.   (6 first team All Pro)

 

9. The Browns first round pick  Quarterback who had the best winning record.

Mike Phipps was 38-31-2.    Every other first round QB taken by the Browns had a losing record.  But, get this, Phipps overall career TD/Int ratio was 55/108.

 

10. The Browns first round pick QB with the most passing yards and most TDs

Tim Couch   11,131 yards,   64 TDs.
