ANSWERS

1. B, Elijah Pitts. The Philander Smith product went on to score 35 total touchdowns for the Packers between 1961 and 1969 and in 1971. Not bad for the 180th overall pick of the 1961 draft.

2. D, Marv Fleming. The Packers used the 184th overall pick in 1963 and the Utah product went on to play on five teams that eventually won Super Bowls.

3. C, Bill Curry. After being the 279th pick in 1964, Curry was a part of championship teams in Green Bay and Baltimore.

STUMPER Daryl Lamonica. The Packers picked Lamonica in the 20th round out of Notre Dame in 1963 but he opted to play with Buffalo in the AFL. Lamonica played with Buffalo after being picked by the Bills in the 24th round. After four seasons in Buffalo, Lamonica played eight seasons in Oakland and was the Raiders' starter against the Packers in Super Bowl II.
