For "whatever reason?" IT'S BECAUSE NOBODY KNEW WHO THE HELL HE WAS. He came from a small school that didn't face big-time opponents so there's no way any team not coached by a Genius would have picked him in the first round. I know the Cowboys claim they were gonna pick him with the very next pick, but it's easy to make that claim years later. NOBODY had their eyes on Jerry Rice except Bill Walsh.
Thats not true man other teams were looking at jerry rice in the first. Come on jesus Walsh was a great coach but god damn man get over it.
