If it hasn't already been corrected, "Fred Willard" should be Ken.
The Pats' 1st round in 1973 was arguably better than 1977. John Hannah, Sam Cunningham and Daryl Stingley. If Stingley hadn't been paralyzed by the Jack Tatum hit, I don't think there would be an argument. I would probably take either Clayborn or Morgan ahead of Cunningham or Stingley, but John Hannah is on the short list of players considered the best linemen ever.
"More likely, though, the team needed leadership, and with Parcells ready to move on after the draft, the leader they needed was the one they had been forced to trade away."
I presume you meant Belichick, not Keshawn.
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
