Here’s the third installment of our five-part series looking back at the best drafts by a team each decade.
Two weeks ago, we highlighted the 1974 draft of the Pittsburgh Steelers and their Hall of Fame selections of wide receivers Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, middle linebacker Jack Lambert and center Mike Webster.
Last time out, it was the 1986 San Francisco 49ers draft that featured outside linebacker Charles Haley, wide receiver John Taylor, fullback Tom Rathman and cornerback Tim McKyer.
Now for our purposes, it is once again 10 years later and we’ll be picking another outstanding class from another franchise.
This time around, we’ll be looking at a group that helped a franchise win three NFL titles in four seasons.
1991 Dallas Cowboys
Anyone familiar with NFL history knows of “The Triplets.” But as everyone also knows, it takes more than three great players to build a championship team.
