Seattle Seahawks' Great Kenny Easley Compares The 1981 NFL Draft to The 1992 Dream Team

“I think Lawrence Taylor should have won the Heisman Trophy winner, but they gave it to a running back named George Rodgers out of the University of South Carolina.  “Lawrence Taylor was the best football player in the land barring none and I’ll say it again barring none. Lawrence Taylor was the best college football player in the land and should have won the Heisman Trophy and if he shouldn’t have won it then Mike Singletary. Who was probably the second-best football player in the land and if he shouldn’t have won it I think I should have won it because I was a three-time Defensive All- American. If I wasn’t the pick to win it, then Ronnie Lott should have won the Heisman Trophy. If you look at our draft class and examine how many numbers one picks and then go look at the all-decade team of the 80s. Finally, research the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If none of those players in our draft class didn’t win the award that no one on the defensive, in my opinion, will ever win it.  If there was such a thing as the NFL’s version of the Original Dream Team the 1981 draft class was it.”

In addition to Easley, the 1981 draft featured individuals such as Lawrence “LT” Taylor, Heisman Trophy Winner George Rogers, Ronnie Lott, Russ Grimm, Howie Long, and Mike Singletary to name a few.  It is kind of difficult to argue with Easley because — according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame — the 1981 draft currently has seven players inducted.  The 1983 draft (featuring the likes of John Elway and Dan Marino) might have something to say about that, but I will leave that for some other day.
