Clayton was also drafted in the second
round of the 1980 draft, by the New York
Jets. The Jets switched Clayton from
his college position of wide receiver to
running back. The move was not a suc-
cessful one and Clayton was eventually
released from the team. St. Louis then
picked him up and moved him back to
wide receiver.

Owens and center George Lilja. Owens
and Lilja joined the Rams last season
as first and third round choices, and did
not exactly set the world, or NFL, on fire.
Despite his first round status, Owens
did not start. Lilja, meanwhile, missed
the whole year with an injury.
New Orleans Saints-None.
San Francisco 49ers-Defensive back
Dwight Hicks, center/guard Walt
Downing, offensive tackle Bubba Paris.
Hicks teamed up with three rookies in a
starting secondary that showed

remarkable imnprovement over the
previous year. During the regular
season, Hicks intercepted nine passes
(third best in NFL) and returned them
for 239 yards (a club record). Hicks also
picked off a pass in the 49ers' Super
Bowl victory over Cincinnati. Paris has
all but been handed a starting job with
the 49ers after being taken early in the
second round of this year's draft. Paris
was expected to start when he was draf-
ted, and now that All-Pro guard Randy
Cross has been injured, one of last
year's starting tackles will replace him
and Paris will start at tackle. Downing
is a backup of the San Francisco offen-
sive line.

MICHIGAN'S BRIAN CARPENTER (9, above) and Butch Woolfolk (24,
below) could find themselves going head to head next season, as both were
drafted by NFC Eastern teams. Woolfolk was the New York Giants' first
round draft choice, while Carpenter was taken in the fourth round by the
Dallas Cowboys.
