The 1966 American Football League draft was held on Saturday, November 27, 1965. The AFL added the Miami Dolphins as an expansion team in 1966 to bring its total to nine franchises for its seventh season. The only Hall of Famer to come out of this draft was Jan Stenerud, who was picked by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the Red Shirt portion of the draft.
This was the last competitive draft of the American Football League before the AFL–NFL merger agreement, which was announced in June 1966. The next draft of college players in 1967 was a common draft, held in mid-March.
The 1966 NFL Draft was held the same day, November 27, 1965.1966 Atlanta Falcons season
The 1966 Atlanta Falcons season was the franchise's inaugural season in the National Football League (NFL). The Falcons finished in seventh place in the NFL Eastern Conference with a record of 3–11, ahead of only the New York Giants.1966 NFL Draft
The 1966 National Football League draft was held at the Summit Hotel in New York City on Saturday, November 27, 1965.The expansion Atlanta Falcons were awarded the first pick in each round as well as the final pick in each of the first five rounds. The first overall selection was Tommy Nobis, a linebacker from Texas. The league also provided the Falcons with an expansion draft six weeks later.This was the last draft in which the NFL and the AFL selected their players separate of one another. As a result, most players drafted by teams from both leagues chose to play for the more established NFL, but not all. Similar to 1965, the AFL draft was held on the same day. After the merger agreement in June 1966, a common draft was held in March 1967.List of Atlanta Falcons players
This is a list of American football players who have played for the Atlanta Falcons in the National Football League (NFL). It includes players that have played at least one game in the NFL regular season. The Atlanta Falcons franchise was founded in 1966. The Falcons have appeared in Super Bowl XXXIII and Super Bowl LI, losing both games.List of Memphis Tigers in the NFL Draft
This is a list of Memphis Tigers football players in the NFL Draft.Memphis Tigers football statistical leaders
The Memphis Tigers football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Memphis Tigers football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Tigers represent the University of Memphis in the NCAA's American Athletic Conference.
Although Memphis began competing in intercollegiate football in 1912, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1947. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.
These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:
Since 1947, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Tigers have played in eight bowl games since this decision, with a ninth now assured in 2018, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.
The Tigers have played in the American Championship Game twice, in 2017 and 2018. Normally, this gives players in those seasons yet another game to accumulate statistics. However, the Tigers were unable to play one of their originally scheduled games in 2017 due to disruptions resulting from Hurricane Irma.These lists are updated through the 2018 American Championship Game.Philadelphia Eagles draft history
