The 'First defensive player drafted' quiz

Former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney has a new home. He had been linked to the Cleveland Browns in recent days, and on Wednesday, the two finally came together on a one-year, $10 million deal. Clowney will now line up opposite Myles Garrett, and the 28-year-old can't wait to prove the doubters wrong. "I just want to show I'm still an elite player. Prove I can still dominate...[you're] gonna see this season."

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Coming out of college, Clowney was seen as a difference-maker, and while he's been a solid pro, he hasn't quite lived up to the massive hype that surrounded him when the Texans drafted him first overall back in 2014. So with that in mind, how many of the first defensive players selected in every NFL Draft since 1991 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
