Re: Have we ever had 8 draft picks make the 53 man roster before?

96 was a great class too:
1 Terry Glenn 7 WR Ohio State
2a Lawyer Milloy 36 SS Washington
3c Tedy Bruschi 86 LB Arizona (from Detroit in previously mentioned trade)
4a Heath Irwin 101 G/C Colorado
4b Chris Sullivan 119 DL Boston College (from Detroit in previously mentioned trade)
4c Kantroy Barber 124 FB West Virginia (from S.F. through Oakland in previously mentioned trade)
5a John Elmore 139 G Texas
5b Christian Peter 149 DT Nebraska (from Oakland in previously mentioned trade)
6a Chris Griffin 173 TE New Mexico
6b Marrio Grier 195 FB Tennessee-Chattanooga (from Detroit in previously mentioned trade)
6c Devin Wyman 206 DE Kentucky State Compensatory Pick
7a Lovett Purnell 216 TE West Virginia
7b J.R. Conrad 247 G Oklahoma Compensatory
Glenn, Milloy, Bruschi, Irwin, Sullivan, Grier and Purnell were the only ones who made the squad though IIRC. That's only 7.
(edit: added Glenn)
It's so simple, even a Jets fan could do it.ä
