The interview tour for my book Draft Daze continued with some analysis from Jerry Jones, author of the draft publication The Drugstore List, not the bombastic Dallas Cowboy owner. Jones has been involved with the draft since 1972 and has spent some time inside the legendary Paul Brown’s war room. I asked him about the most impressive prospect he’s ever seen. His response? Anthony Munoz. Here’s what he had to say:
The only Bengal in the Football Hall of Fame, Anthony Munoz. A completely gifted athlete who could compete high-level in any sport. And he understood the mechanics of the game. When Jim McNally (who was hired yesterday as a consultant for the Bengals) needed help with a young prospect, Jim would put him with Anthony for an hour or so and the great player also became a great teacher.
