Randy White, Defensive Tackle from the University of Maryland. In the 1975 NFL draft, the Cowboys traded Craig Morton to the New York Giants for the rights to their top pick (#2 overall), and with that pick they chose Randy. The Cowboys originally had Randy playing linebacker but in his 3rd season, Tom Landry put Randy at defensive tackle in the middle of his vaunted 'Flex' Defense where he became the best at his position. Nicknamed 'Manster', half man, half monster, Randy was named to the Pro Bowl nine consecutive seasons, played in three Super Bowls (MVP of SBXII) and played in six NFC Championship games. During his 14 year career Randy missed only one game. Upon retirement, Randy was quickly enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor. Randy White was simply one of the best defensive players to ever play the game.
