Ti ers overcome KC,
Brett taters, win 8-6
By DAVID HYMAN
The NFL 1988 schedule does not begin for
another six months, but the football season will
be starting this upcoming weekend in New York.
On Sunday, (ESPN 12:00), the NFL draft will
take place. Like many other sport magazines,
here is a list of the first round draft selections:
-ATLANTA-Fairly obvious. The Falcons
have already signed Auburn linebacker Aundray
Bruce to a five-year deal.
-DETROIT-The Lions need help all over,
but Miami's (Fla.) safety and bruiser Bennie
Blades is too good to pass up.
-KANSAS CITY-The Chiefs need defen-
sive line help. Nebraska's Neil Smith, a 6' 4"
261-pound defensive lineman is big and can run a
4.46 in the 40-yard dash.
-TAMPA BAY- With quarterback Vinny
Testaverde, all the Bucs need is someone who can
run and catch his tosses. South Carolina's Ster-
ling Sharpe fits that billing.
-CINCINNATI-Boomer Esiason can throw
the ball but the Bengals have no one to run with
it. Lorenzo White from MSU can run and run and
-LA RAIDERS-The Raiders don't have a
quarterback and after the draft, they still won't.
Receivers are ubiquitous this year and Heisman
winner Tim Brown from Notre Dame can catch,
run and return kicks.
-GREEN BAY-Jim McMahon has peti-
tioned the league that the 'Pack' get some new
linemen after Charles Martin's bodyslam two
years ago. Illinois' Scott Davis, at 6' 6", can
-NEW YORK JETS-Quarterback Ken
O'Brien may have been the highest rated passer
two years ago, but will not be playing much
more if he continues to be found on the ground.
The Jets offensive line has more holes than a
slice of Swiss cheese. Wisconsin's lineman Paul
Gruber will help this depleted offensive line and
-HOUSTON-The Oilers made the playoffs
last year and showed they still need help on de-
fense, as it wins championships. Miami, (Fla.)
defensive end Daniel Stubbs is a winner and
loves to sack the quarterback.
-NEW YORK GIANTS-Despite suffer-
ing from a losing season after a Super Bowl vic-
tory two years ago, this team still has a solid
nucleus. Offensive linemen were the problem last
year due to injuries. Paul Cadigan from USC
will open up holes for potent runner Joe Morris.
-DALLAS-Dallas needs quarterbacks, but
there are no stars here. Instead, Michigan's John
'Jumbo' Elliot will provide the blocks that
spring Herschel Walker loose and into the open.
-PHOENIX-This team played in St. Louis
last year if you didn't know. Stanford's fullback
Brad Muster is big, can run, catch and block.
This guy is good. Don't be surprised if he is
drafted earlier, possibly by the Giants.
-PHILADELPHIA-Head coach Buddy
Ryan's first love is defense. Ohio State's
linebacker Chris Spielman fulfills Ryan's model
of an aggressive, strong defender.
-LA RAMS-After trading away their
whole offense last year (Eric Dickerson), the
Rams need a running back. Pittsburgh's Craig
Heyward, a fullback, built like a Mack truck at
260 pounds, can bust loose.
-SAN DIEGO-Ricky Dixon, a cornerback
out of Oklahoma, will be a starter for this weak
Charger defense. How did he go this late?
-MIAMI-The offense is fine, but the Dol-
phin defense needs help. Syracuse's lineman Ted
Gregory performed well at the combined work-
outs and will help Don Shula's depleted team.
-NEW ENGLAND-It doesn't matter who
owns this team, the Pats still need running
backs. UCLA's Gaston Green (4.29 in the 40)
will help take some of the workload off of Craig
-PITTSBURGH-Now that the Steelers
have a quarterback in Todd Blackledge, just add
Miami's (Fla.) receiver Michael Irvin to Louis
Lipps and you've got the next Swann and Stall-
-MINNESOTA-Cornerback Terrence Mc-
Daniel from Tennessee will help this team that
also made it to the Super Bowl last season.
-LA RAMS-Another pick in the first
round. This is what happens when you trade
Dickerson. LSU's wideout Wendell Davis will 1
fly under Jim Everret's bombs, but will not do
his dance in the end zone.
-HOUSTON-They still need defense and
Purdue's linebacker Fred Strickland was impres-
sive playing in the Big Ten.
-CLEVELAND-Ozzie Newsome is not
getting old, but already is old. Oklahoma tight
end Keith Jackson could be a steal this late.
-CHICAGO-Clifford Charlton, a
linebacker from the University of Florida, will fit
in nicely where former Gator Wilbur Marshall
-NEW ORLEANS-Running back Ruben
Mayes suffered a serious ligament injury and will
not run like he has. John Stephens out of NW
Louisiana St. with 4.4 speed is home grown and
will be a star.
-SAN FRANCISCO-Their linebacking
corps is weak. Unable to snatch Marshall, the
Niners will take Oklahoma's Dante Jones unless
they can grab Carl Banks from the Giants,
-DENVER-After losing the last two Super
Bowls because of no running game, Michigan's
Jamie Morris will fit in well. He is small but
can run as well as catch.
-BUFFALO-Plenty of talent will be
available at the No. 40 spot. Miami (Fla.) run-
ning back Melvin Bratton, who would have gone
higher if not for his knee injury in the Orange
Bowl, might be around for the Bills.
-SEATTLE-Picking 49th, the Seahawks
will be able to use this pick on a quarterback.
Florida's Kerwin Bell is big and can go deep.
Hawaii's Al Noga will fill in for the aging Dave
Butz, that is if Noga is still available. The Red-
skins, picking 54th,,.hope that Noga is around to
perform his tribal sack-dance next to Dexter
-INDIANAPOLIS-This is what happens
when you trade to get Dickerson. Picking 76th,
the next available athlete will help., Arizona
safety Chuck Cecil will help the Colt defense.
DETROIT (AP) - Tiger out-
fielder Chet Lemon extended his hit-
ting streak to all 10 Detroit games,
driving in two runs and scoring
twice, in leading the Tigers to an 8-6
L victory yesterday over the Kansas
"Right field is less demanding,"
said Lemon, who made the switch
after the Tigers acquired Gary Pettis
in an off-season trade. "It lends itself
to letting you concentrate on hit-
Jeff Robinson, 1-1, allowed three
runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.
Three of the four hits off him were
solo homers, two by George Brett
and one by Jamie Quirk. Brett also
drove in a run in the eighth with a
single and had three RBI.
Don Heinkel, Willie Hernandez
and Mike Henneman finished up for
Robinson. Henneman worked the fi-
nal 1 1/3 innings for his fourth save.
Detroit scored three runs in the
second to take a lead they wouldn't
relinquish. Matt Nokes and Jim
Morrison singled in the second,
moved up on a bunt by Pat Sheridan
and scored on Lemon's single. Gary
Pettis singled Lemon home.
Brett's fourth inning home run
cleared the roof in right field, the
first ball out of Tiger stadium since
Kirk Gibson did so on September
10, 1986. His seventh inning blast
bounced off a pillar in the second
deck in right.
