The Drafting of the 2010 Class – Floyd Little

As part of the merger agreement between the American Football League and National Football League, a joint draft between the two leagues was held for the first time in 1967. That ended the many heated battles between AFL and NFL clubs for the top college talent that had been the norm since the AFL was founded in 1960. There’s little doubt that Syracuse running back Floyd Little would been the embroiled in one of those tug-of-wars between the rival leagues had the draft format not changed in time.
