Other pick in that round: Ross was taken two picks before Pete Gogolak by the Bills.
The details: The Bills outbid the Cardinals for Ross, a running back out of Nebraska where he was one of the Big Ten’s top rushers. He only played for the Bills in 1964, when he ran the ball four times for 14 yards. Ross might be best remembered for his roommates that season, as he shared an apartment with Cookie Gilchrist and Booker Edgerson.
Other 90s: Willie is in a class by himself. Ross is the only player ever taken by a Buffalo team in draft slot No. 90.
