The draft then started on tuesday morning and it had to be around 6 am on the west coast. My wife thought i was out of my mind for taking a day off and going to a bar that early in the morning. Seemed pretty normal to me.
I just had a look at that draft. Hughes was a RB from Boise State who were in the college football wilderness 30 years ago. Amazing how far the draft and its coverage has progressed since those days. Two running backs were taken in the Top 3. LT and Ronnie Lott were selected in the Top 8.
Mike Singletary, Howie Long and Rickey Jackson were all taken soon after Hughes in the 2nd rd. Ouch!
