Image 6 of 10


1968: Ron Yary was a University of Southern California offensive lineman drafted by the Minnesota Vikings. A college teammate of O.J. Simpson’s at Southern Cal, where his blocking helped Simpson win the 1968 Heisman Trophy. A six-time all-pro who played in four Super Bowls with the Minnesota Vikings, each time in a losing cause. Minnesota acquired Yary by trading star quarterback Fran Tarkenton to the New York Giants for the draft rights to Yary.
