Joe Thomas, Drafted 3rd overall in the 2007 NFL Draft
Taken behind draft bust quarterback JaMarcus Russell and talented receiver Calvin Johnson. Looking back, it’s clear that Joe Thomas was one of the best and certainly most consistent players to come from a stacked draft class. Everyone in Cleveland knows his rap sheet, but for the sake of the article, it bears repeating. 10,363 straight snaps played from 2007 to 2017. He protected the blind side of every quarterback to come through Cleveland from the promising guys to the downright painful ones. His bust will no doubt soon dawn the walls of Canton and his image is one that frequents Browns fans’ Mount Rushmore beside other greats like Jim Brown or Otto Graham.
