15. Carl Lee

I can think of another guy the Vikings drafted out of Marshall who also had a significant impact.

Long before Moss, the Vikings took cornerback Carl Lee out of Marshall with the 186th overall pick in the 1983 draft.

How’s this for a return on a 186th overall pick:

11 years. 29 interceptions. 771 tackles. Three Pro Bowls. One first-team All-Pro.

That’s what they nowadays call a value pick.
