Jay Berwanger was the first player ever drafted by the NFL. Berwanger played halfback for the University of Chicago; where he won the Heisman in 1935. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1936 NFL Draft and subsequently was traded to the Chicago Bears. Jay never played a down in the NFL as he was unable to agree with Bear’s owner George Halas on a contract. Halas offered $13,500, but Jay wanted $15,000. My how times have changed! Last year the first pick of the NFL draft, Jared Goff, was signed for $27.9 million with $18.6 million being guaranteed money.
