2016 NFL Draft

10 Years of Pick No. 27: Odds Are in Packers’ Favor

Donald Brown

Donald Brown, running back, Indianapolis Colts

Here’s another dud for you. Brown’s greatest rushing total in a season was 645 with the Colts in 2011.

You could argue that he was never given the opportunity to be a full-time back and that’s true, but there’s also a reason for that. Brown is a career backup, who’s now on his third NFL team.

While it’s nice for Brown that he still has a role in the NFL, you expect more out of a first-round pick than “role player.”

    Odds are in Packers favor? Unless of course you factor in Teds 1st round results since 2005. That is the moment when you discover that this article is worthless, on basing what has happened with the last 10 years picks of the 27th pick. which has absolutely no bearing on the quality of player that will be chosen with the 27th pick this year.

    Brilliant.
