Jerry Rice And Emmitt Smith Will Be Inducted Into Hall Of Fame
(News One) — 16th name called in the 1985 NFL draft. Emmitt Smith saw 16 players selected before he was taken in 1990. Their wait to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame was nowhere near as excruciating. On Saturday night, Rice and Smith will be inducted together in the Canton, Ohio shrine as the top receiver and top rusher in league history. They were slam-dunk choices back in February, having proven through so many years how unwise so many teams were for bypassing them.
