And only one headed to the NFL HOF Joe Thomas.

Some of the real obscure picks are lost to the dust bin of time in my mind. Sad isn't it when fist round picks are like one night stands in your twenties.....or less.

 On first thought no more are popping up. Hmmmmmmm.

Here is today's Question:    Pro-Football-Reference  produces a statistic known as the Career Average, or Career Production Average, which supposedly measures every players production throughout their careers, and on a season basis.    They actually have ONLY produced this stat going back to like 1960.  So, today's question is:

Name the Top 12 Cleveland Browns who produced the most in their careers....with the Browns.... since about 1960 per the  Career Production Average.

ONLY Sipe is correct.   All the others...No.  (Note...this is only for time with Browns....Warfield's time with Miami would not count here, so he did not make it.)  But yes,  both offense and defense.

Here is today's Question:    Pro-Football-Reference  produces a statistic known as the Career Average, or Career Production Average, which supposedly measures every players production throughout their careers, and on a season basis.    They actually have ONLY produced this stat going back to like 1960.  So, today's question is:

Name the Top 12 Cleveland Browns who produced the most in their careers....with the Browns.... since about 1960 per the  Career Production Average.   Answers:

1. Clay Matthews   124

2. Jim Brown  122

3. Dick Shafrath  115

4. Gene Hickerson  111

5. Joe Thomas  106

6. Leroy Kelley  102

7. Doug Dieken  92

8. Brian Sipe  88

9. Gary Collins  87

t10. Hanford Dixon  80

t10. Jim Houston   80

t10. Frank Ryan  80

After this top dozen,  other Top 25 Browns are in this order:

  13.  Walter Johnson 14. Michael Dean Perry  15. Greg Pruitt  16. Cody Risien  17. Clarence Scott  18. Ozzie Newsome   19....fittingly:  Bernie Kosar  20. Warfield  21.  Minniefield  22. Cockroft  23. Sherk  24. Darden  25. Mike Pruitt. 

To my view, this just shows how pathetic the talent acquisition for the Browns has been for the past 20 years......ONLY  Joe Thomas is on this list of the 25 most productive Browns since 1960.     So...for  35 years....from 1960 to 1995  24 of these players are from that era.  For 20 years since 1999....only ONE player. 

In fact, after Joe Thomas,  not another player appears in the Top 50 most productive Browns of all time until you get to  DQwell Jackson at #40,  and then Orpheus Roye at #47 is the only other Brown in that Top 50.....and remember...that Top 50 does NOT include any of the players from the dynasty years of the 40s and 50s.
