Cleveland Browns Draft Success #1: Joe Thomas

Teammates celebrate Joe Thomas being listed No. 1 overall.
Teammates celebrate Joe Thomas being listed No. 1 overall.

Was their ever a doubt who would be listed No. 1 overall on the Cleveland Browns Draft Success list? Joe Thomas has been the best left tackle in the NFL. Taken with the third overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, he has been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his four seasons with the Browns.

I'm not sure there is really anything else to say, so I'm keeping this post short and sweet. Peyton Hillis gets the glory of being the Madden coverboy, but he has a long way to go before he can dethrone Thomas as the best player on the team. Rarely do top picks seem to live up to expectations, but Thomas has done so with ease. Hopefully the Browns have the same fortune when they make their sixth overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft later today. I hope everyone enjoyed this series of "busts" and "successes" over the past four weeks; don't forget to enter into the Bud Light contest (after the jump is the link) for your chance to win big.
