Troy Aikman: He was the No. 1 overall draft pick in 1989. A few months later, the Cowboys took Steve Walsh, also a quarterback, in the supplemental draft. Walsh never had a chance. Aikman won the starting job, and Walsh was traded early in the 1990 season. Though Aikman went 0-11 as a starter in 1989, his potential was obvious. The turnaround was quick in 1990 with the arrival of Emmitt Smith to join Aikman and Michael Irvin. Starting in the 1992 season, the Cowboys would win three Super Bowls in four years with Aikman leading the way. Now, he’s maybe the best NFL commentator around.
