Cornerback,Grambling State
Signed by Broncos after 1963 draft
Brown had a short stint with the Houston Oilers after getting drafted but was cut during training camp. Denver scooped him up, and he would go on to have 54 interceptions with both the Broncos and the Raiders. The highlight of Brown's Hall of Fame career was a 75-yard pick-six in Super Bowl XI.(Credit: AP)
