On Oct. 12, 1989, the Vikings traded their first- and second-round picks in both the 1990 and '91 drafts, plus their first-round choice in the '92 draft, to the Cowboys in the Herschel Walker deal. While Minnesota, which finished 8-8 in 1991, was sitting out those five rounds, the six NFC teams that qualified for the playoffs last season were drafting players who should contribute for years to come. (Projected 1992 starters in capital letters.)
