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