Great point!! Maybe history will repeat itself this year.
I would also go 1986 as the best cause it did totally merge the early 80's with the late 80's three peat attempt. Plus it was classic walsh style drafting in move down acquiring more picks and still getting the guys he wanted. What is funny is that our board this year has just as many picks (11), and honestly Trent doesn't have to do any movement to acquire them. Let's hope history does repeat and this '14 draft put this team over the hump, swings the power back from Seattle, and results in a couple of titles.
1994 was probably my second favorite, cause getting three starters on an already championship caliber team is still pretty amazing. I always felt the '94 draft never got it respect because of the high publicized free agents that year.
