I post this a little late, but it gives me a good chance to poke a little fun at our friends at Music City Miracles.
"I had his draft card in my hand and had him on the phone," Reese writes. "A last-second plea by coaches stopped the selection. Not once in my career had I ever taken a name off the board on draft day and not made the selection."
Reese went on to say that four issues affected the decision: the confidence Tennessee coaches had in the player they chose, USC running back LenDale White; the need for a young running back; not being able to decide with certainty where to play Hester; and the presence of a Pro Bowl-caliber return specialist in Pacman Jones.
