Old school meets new school with Brown at draft

When Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown was taken sixth overall out of Syracuse in 1957, the NFL draft wasn’t even close to being half the spectacle that it is today.

So what a special moment it was for Brown, who was voted by the fans as the 12th most valuable pick in the 75-year history of the draft, to be on hand inside Radio City Music Hall on Friday night to announce the Cleveland Browns’ second-round selection, T.J. Ward at No. 38.

Not only that, but Brown was in the green room chatting it up with NFL Network’s Deion Sanders, as well as fellow Hall of Famer and NFL Network analyst Rod Woodson, 2010 Hall of Fame inductee John Randle, and current Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

It’s definitely classic stuff to see the old school and the new school come together.
