The Eagles were 0-12 one year and a 'lock' to draft OJ Simpson. Then they went and won their last 2 or 3 games to finish next-to-last.

Remember who they got?

Didn't think so.




They got Leroy Keyes at #3. I guess in that light, you can claim that they missed out on the opportunity to draft the greatest murderer in NFL history. Before we lament the tough break, anyone remember who went #4?

4 Pittsburgh Steelers Joe Greene DT North Texas State
