Obviously the circumstances were different, but the last time a team drafted a quarterback No. 1 overall after a season in which they played and failed to win a game was 1983. The Colts, coming off an 0-8-1 strike-shortened season, drafted John Elway, who turned out to be pretty good (though not for the Colts).
