The Vikings, Bills and Ravens are those three teams. The Vikings were an NFL expansion team in 1961. The Bills were members of the American Football League from 1960 until the merger before the 1970 season. The Ravens moved to Baltimore as the Browns in 1996, but left the Browns’ name and records behind in Cleveland.

• Colts’ worst pick: Art Schlichter, No. 4, 1982.

• Oilers/Titans’ best pick: Steve McNair, No. 3, 1995.
