It's hard to imagine that the second overall pick would celebrate his impending fortune by slamming 41 Coors Lights (come to think of it, it's hard to image how he didn't die).

The New York Giants were elated that the Saints had passed on Taylor with the first overall selection (they ended up drafting running back George Rogers) because, as their head coach Ray Perkins put it, "He was the cleanest player in the draft. By that I mean there was no rap on him."
