In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, in 1992, The Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots were involved in a different battle. For number 1 pick in the NFL Draft. The Pats were ever so slightly worst and were number 1 pick--they chose WSU quarterback Drew Bledsoe (above). The Seahawks picked quarterback Rick Mirer from Notre Dame, who the following season, started better than Bledsoe, but soon was unable to stay at the level needed to QB in the NFL. Bledsoe, a native of Walla Walla, was instrumental in building the Patriots into one of the NFL's greatest franchises.
Both teams are now considered the best in the league.
