Enjoy, Lions fans. One of the greatest moments in Lions history.
Watching this draft was kind of funny. It’s great seeing the talking heads discuss whether or not Troy Aikman was a terrible pick. To Mel Kiper’s credit, he stepped in and said the Aikman pick was solid and that he thinks Aikman can help to elevate the Cowboys into Super Bowl champs within a few years while others called the Cowboys clueless. They also talked about Mandarich being a can’t miss prospect who could have even gone #1. They then debate whether or not Barry was the right pick, if he’s big enough to play in the NFL, etc. If only they knew what he’d become…I think they’d of spent a little more time on Barry and a little less time on Mandarich.
We never know until it happens.
