Minnesota loves drafting WRs that can't catch though, so if true that would make sense. Patterson can't catch, they used the 7th pick on some dude...Troy Williamson maybe? that had like unfixable vision issues and saw double and couldn't catch.

Some people are blessed to be able to light up a room. He's one the most blessed in that category. Electric personality.

What position group has generated the most: yards, points, tackles, INTs. Which players led each category and what non Cleveland team did they play for?

Bonus: how many of them did the Browns pass on in the same round they were drafted. I realize this is probably another week's worth of research, but you asked!

Obligatory:

A DOG’S PURPOSE ACCORDING TO A 6 YEAR OLD

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.”

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me.  I’d never heard a more comforting explanation.  He said, “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life – like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?”

The six-year-old continued, “Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”
