1st Overall: A Quiz about the #1 pick in the NFL Draft

Every year in April, all 32 NFL teams gather in some major city and conduct a draft of the graduating college players. 224 players will be picked over 7 rounds, and then just as many players will be signed as free agents. Each franchise employs numerous scouts, coaches, and draft experts to determine which players will be successful in the pros. Sometimes their draft picks do in fact work out, but sometimes they are dismal failures. To get the #1 pick overall, that means the team must have finished last in the league in the previous season. So when a team picks 1st overall, they are theoretically getting the best college player in the nation. How well do you know your NFL #1 overall draft picks? The whistle has blown.

Dave Morrissey

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
