The bottom line on Profit: 38 years later, the Atlanta Falcons still want their money back. The Falcons took the running back from Northeast Louisiana with the seventh overall pick in the ’71 draft, and he rewarded them with 197 rushing yards in a little over two seasons. After being traded to the New Orleans Saints in 1973, he played eight games before hanging up his cleats. Three Hall of Famers — defensive lineman Jack Youngblood, legendary defensive back Jack Tatum, and offensive tackle Dan Dierdorf — were all drafted after Profit.
