Best of Boston

1995 Best Pundit Buster

Mike Mamula

The BC linebacker was rated no better than a third-round pick when he declared for the draft. Scouts and scribes said he was too small and too slow. A few 40-yard dashes and strength drills later, Mamula became the seventh pick overall of the Philadelphia Eagles. In three years he will make more than those scouts and scribes scrape together in a lifetime.
