I know, but I was already biting off Hasbro last year for the picture.

Like the pick of Nitschke, would have taken him I think if Lambert was taken.

#75 forrest gregg -- offensive tackle

Nature dictated that finesse would play a major role in the life of the gruff, no-nonsense, straight-talking Gregg, who at 6-4 and 249 pounds was lighter and not as strong as the players he had to block. So he became a great technician...He worked hard on his footwork, learned about leverage and balance, studied film on opponents...He became the offensive anchor for one of the best teams ever assembled.

He seldom made a mistake on run-blocking assignments, he was tireless and he was very intelligent, the ultimate team leader whom Lombardi called "the finest player I ever coached."

With the durable Gregg (he played in 187 consecutive games for the Packers over 14 seasons) clearing the way, the great Packers of the '60s won five NFL championships (and two Super Bowls) in a seven-year period.

He spent countless hours watching coaches’ films of the most noted stars. It wasn't long before he knew the moves of every opponent and had perfected ways to combat them.

Would have liked to have gotten further with this over the weekend. I hoped to make at least 2 picks, maybe 3.

Well the Packers and FlyersHomer DM03's 10 hours to draft is running out here so Darko will be on the clock here soon. Hopefully we can get a nice little roll going soon.

His 10 hours expired about 15 minutes ago, so I guess he can be skipped??

11× Pro Bowl selection (1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964)
9× First-team All-Pro selection (1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964)
1× Second-team All-Pro selection (1955)
NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team
NFL 1950s All-Decade Team
All-Madden All-Millennium Team (2000)
NFL All-Time Team (2000)
1963 Pro Bowl MVP
2× NFL Champion (1958, 1959)
Baltimore Colts #89 retired


For what's it worth, also a member of the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame.

Grr...I did not expect both Smith and Marchetti to be gone by my picks.

Well, with my two picks I will take CB Mel Blount and OT Art Shell.

With Blount, I get a premier CB who can lockdown an entire side of the field. Blount also had a knack for making huge plays when it mattered the most--in January.

Judging from last year's draft (and already a few picks in this year's), there's going to be a huge run on O-linemen before my next pick, and I want to make sure I get a solid guy at LT, and Shell fits the bill.

Pick 30 - Dallas Cowboys select - Deion Sanders CB

Deion’s job was to shutdown the opposition’s best receiver and he did that better than anyone. Throw in the fact that Sanders is one of the most dangerous return men to play the sport.

I was torn between Blount and Sanders. I think my personal dislike for Prime Time probably influenced my decision a bit though.

Blount was an integral part of a dynasty on defense. Sanders, while great, and certainly still a good pick, was not. That's kind of what separates Blount from Sanders for me.

That and Deion is an egomaniac that was allergic to tackling.

Ok, so who is up? The last pick was made last night, and the Packers weren't on the clock. I had a 4-day weekend, was hoping to get more than one pick in.

Same here. Sanders was 1 of my all time favorite players but common sense (and maybe a tiny bit of football knowledge lol) was telling me to go with Blount. Hard to split them though.

the cleveland browns are pleased to provide montana with a fantastic target in...

#19 lance alworth -- wide receiver

Quote:
Originally Posted by the sporting news

His long, loping stride, dance-stepping footwork and leaping, twisting style brought beauty to a sport filled with beasts. Lance Alworth was the ultimate wide receiver of the 1960s, a crowd-pleasing showpiece for the AFL in its battle to gain football respectability.

He joined the San Diego Chargers in 1962 and quickly blossomed into the AFL's first true superstar. It was a perfect match: XXX XXX's high-powered vertical passing game with XXX XXX throwing to the speedy Alworth, who was explosive, fearless and acrobatic. He never met a defender he couldn't burn, and he never saw a pass he couldn't catch, thanks to his outstanding leaping ability and what XXX called "the greatest hands I've ever seen."

Throw in those big brown eyes, a Prince Valiant haircut, Hollywood good looks and the stylish clothes that became his trademark and you have star quality. Alworth made it all work over an 11-year career that produced 542 receptions for 10,266 yards and 85 touchdowns. He averaged a remarkable 18.9 yards per catch, recorded seven straight 1,000-yard seasons and caught at least one pass in every AFL game in which he played. His showcase season was 1965, when he caught 69 passes for 1,602 yards and 14 touchdowns -- averaging a whopping 23.2 yards per reception.

Alworth, who helped the Chargers win the 1963 AFL championship, spent his final two years in Dallas, where his free-wheeling style was restricted by a more-conservative offense. Still, the seven-time Pro Bowl selection played a prominent role for the 1971 team that won a league championship, and he caught a TD pass in a Super Bowl VI win over Miami.

His patented leaping catches and blazing after-the-catch runs are legendary. Statistics many times are misleading, but in Alworth's case, they are not.

In 11 pro seasons, he caught 542 passes for 10,266 yards, an 18.94-yard average and 85 touchdowns. During his nine seasons with the Chargers, the graceful receiver averaged more than 50 catches and 1,000 yards per season.

He was named All-AFL seven straight years from 1963 to 1969 and played in the league's last seven All-Star games. He caught at least one pass in every AFL game he played, including a then-record 96 straight regular-season games and 105 in a row, if you count two AFL title games and seven All-Star appearances.

Since throwing to a TE was critical for his career, lets give Elway the best:
