21. Pat Fischer

Pat Fischer may have been a great player at Nebraska, but standing at 5’ 9” made NFL scouts feel that he was too small to play in the NFL.  He fell to the 17thRound in the 1961 Draft, where the St. Louis Cardinals took the Cornerback.


Fischer made the Cards, where he played for seven seasons before joining the Washington Redskins in 1968.  Fischer, who went to two Pro Bowls as a Cardinal, was named to another in 1969, where he was also a First Team All-Pro.  Fischer played for Washington until 1977, and he would have five years where he had double-digits in Approximate Value.

As a Redskin, Fischer had 27 Interceptions.
