How does the Raiders Rich Gannon (among others - e.g., Conway Hayman for the Houston Oilers/Texans, etc.) get left off this list? I guess it was foolishly limited to one player per franchise, instead of allowing all notable "small college" NFL stars to be included.

They chose one player of choice but some of the write ups, including the Raiders', mention other players. But, you're right, no Gannon. But then, no Bradshaw in the Steelers' write up either. Not very well done.

Pretty hard to argue with their picks IMO.
