the draft were all used to get
the rights to linemen.
C I N C I N N A T I, which
obtained the third pick in an
earlier trade with Buffalo, chose
defensive tackle Eddie Edwards
of the University of Miami.
Then the two New York
teams reached all the way
across the continent for their
first round choices. First the
Jets picked offensive tackle
Marvin Powell of USC. The
Giants followed by picking yet
another Trojan, defensive tac-
kle Gary Jeter. Thus, three of
the first five players chosen
were members of the Rose Bowl
The first round was dominat-
ed by defense and by lineman.
Of the 28 players picked, only
six will regularly touch the ball
30 offense. Only two quarter-
backs were chosen. Steve Pisar-
kiewicz of Missouri was picked
nineteenth by St. Louis and
Tommy Kramer of Rice was
tabbed second to last by Minne-
Rob Lytle was the first Michi-
gan player picked, going to
Denver as the seventeenth pick
of the second round. Wide re-
ceiver Jim Smith was the only
tther Wolverine drafted in yes-
terday's five rolds. He was
chosen by Pittsburgh in the
third round.
Two Big Ten players were
selected in the first round. Tight
Pnd Mike Cobb of MSU was the
Renaals' third pick of the round.
He was followed immediately in
the selection process by Bob
trudzinski of Ohio State, who
went to Los Angeles.
out a pick in the first round,

drafted Walt Williams of New
Mexico State in the second
round. Coach Tommy Hudspeth
hopes the 6-foot, 185 pound de-
fensive back will be able to
spell the veterans -at both cor-
nerback and safety. He also ex-
pects to use Williams as a kick
Detroit chose running back
Rick Kane of San Jose State in
the third round.
Of course, the draft is only
the first step in signing a play-
er. The next few weeks will be
busy with negotiations between
teams, players, and agents. The
high picks will become instant
millionaires. For instance, Tam-
pa Bay signed Bell today to a
five year contract ranging in es-
timates from $1.25 million-$15
Dorsett said yesterday he
would play for the Dallas Cow-
boys if they offered him a con-
tract similar to .the one the
Tampa Bay gave Bell.
"I WOULD LOVE to play for
the Bowboys but I will go where
it is best for me,' said Dorsett,
holding out the threat of per-

haps bolting to Canada if cont
tract negotiations stall.
Asked where he Wouldlike to
play if all things were equal, he
said, "In the NFL( of course. I
hope we get an agreement soon.
I do feel I'm worth as much as
anybody in professional foot-
ball. I must be worth something
for the Cowboys to sacrifice
four draft choices."
The real winner in the battle
for the big bucks will be agent
Mike Trope, who represents
both Dorsett and Bell. Trope
also represents Powell and Bry-
ant. He predicts that Dorsett's
contract will be similar to
Bell's. He should net over $250
thousand just for his work on
behalf of the two runners.
