    Winner!

    Merlin Jay Olsen was a Hall Of Fame player, announcer, and actor. He played his entire 15-year professional football career in the National Football League as a defensive tackle with the Los Angeles Rams. He was selected to the Pro Bowl a record 14 straight times, missing selection only in the last year of his career. Olsen is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. As an actor, he portrayed farmer Jonathan Garvey on Little House on the Prairie. After leaving that series, he starred in his own NBC drama, Father Murphy.

    Coming out of college, Olsen had offers from both the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League and the Denver Broncos of the rival American Football League. He chose the security of the NFL and signed with the Rams.

    Olsen was also known as an NFL commentator for making the assumption that Jim McMahon left a game from whiplash, when in fact, the 1984 match up between the Bears and Raiders (dubbed the most violent NFL game of all time) resulted in McMahon actually suffering from a lacerated kidney!

    Which former Denver Broncos draft pick once referred to a Jim McMahon injury as just whiplash?
    He never played a down with The Broncos, but played 15 years with another NFL team.

    Make the CPs rain down on me!
    WINNER!

    Rick Parros was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the 1980 NFL Draft, for whom he played from 1981 through 1984. He was Denver's leading rusher in 1981 with 749 yards on 176 carries. Parros also played for the Seattle Seahawks from 1985 through 1987.

    Though he led The Broncos in his rookie season, he only managed another 632 yards rushing for the rest of his career, Therefore he had over 54% of his rushing career in year one.
