Roosevelt "Rosey" Brown

At Morgan State University, Brown revolutionized the game with his 6'3", 255-pound frame, and being very agile and quick on his feet which is very unusual for his era. After being drafted in 1953 in the 27th round of the NFL Draft, Brown was named to the Pro Bowl a total of nine times and helped the Giants win the NFL Championship in 1956. For eight straight years, he was a virtually unanimous All-NFL choice and was named to nine Pro Bowls. In 1975, “Rosey” Brown became only the second player to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the merits of his offensive line play alone.
