27. Dan Marino, 1983, Dolphins
This pick was no contest and it always will be. Marino will likely be remembered as the best quarterback to never win a Super Bowl. He almost single-handedly made the Dolphins relevant for long stretches of his 17-year career. It’s actually amazing that he remained on the board until the 27th pick, even in a draft that included a few other quarterbacks of note.
Marino still owns about a dozen NFL records, including the most wins by a starting quarterback on Monday Night Football, meaning he shined under the brightest lights. He also retired owning a couple dozen other records and should never be overlooked in the conversation about the top quarterbacks of all-time.
