I was doing some research earlier for a future writing project and found out that with the No. 2 pick in 1975, the Cowboys were torn between Randy White and Walter Payton. The selection of The Manster came down to the feeling that he would have more longevity and be productive longer than a running back since the shelf life for that position was even shorter back in those days. It still worked out in our favor because Randy White also went on to have a Hall Of Fame career, and we ended up getting another Hall Of Fame running back 2 years later.......Tony Dorsett In fact, Randy and TD were in the same 1994 HOF class. It would have been interesting to follow the developments of that particular draft, especially since it was a historic one for the Cowboys.
