Drafting, the Paul Brown Way.

When Paul Brown was founder of the Cincinnati Bengals as well as coach in 1968, he espoused the same theory of other coaches in the National Football League when it came to draft day. He always said, "I'll take the best athlete available."

That's what the current coaches in the NFL have been saying right along about this year's draft, which starts Saturday in Radio City. That's a lot different from the Radio City I knew, but the football story remains the same. Who is the best athlete available?
