Class of 1983

Greatest QB Class ever? Hard to argue with three Hall of Famers, though how the Chiefs, Pats and Jets passed on Dan Marino (pictured) remains one of the NFL’s great mysteries. Note, too, that future Saints stalwart Bobby Hebert came out in ’83 but went to the USFL and (unlike Jim Kelly) was not part of this stellar draft of  John Elway of  Stanford (R1, 1, Colts),  Todd Blackledge of Penn State (R1, 7, Chiefs), Jim Kelly of Miami (R1, 14, Bills),  Tony Eason of Illinois (R1, 15, Patriots), Ken O’Brien of UC-Davis (R1, 24, Jets), and Marino of Pitt (R1, 27, Dolphins).
