Garrett was an All-American quarterback at Stanford. The Cleveland Browns needed a replacement for fading Hall-of-Famer Otto Graham. So Garrett seemed like the right fit…until Browns coach Paul Brown discovered that Brown stuttered, and couldn’t call the plays. The first overall pick in the ’54 draft, Garrett was quickly shipped to Green Bay, but the problem didn’t improve. “He couldn’t say words that started with an ‘s,’ like split left or split right,” former Packer Fred Cone told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Garrett threw for 143 yards in his one NFL season.
