    1991 Atlanta Falcons Draft Picks Scouting Reports, Combine Photographs, Etc. - With Historically Significant Brett Favre Documents! It seemed like Brett Favre's career was doomed before it began, when in 1991 the Atlanta Falcons went against head coach Jerry Glanville's wishes and drafted the Southern Mississippi standout 33rd overall. Glanville spoke about the pick as only the fiery Perrysburg, Ohio native could, saying it would take a plane crash for him to put Favre into the game. Glanville looked pretty smart after Favre finally did get in the game, throwing his first NFL regular season pass that resulted in an interception returned for a touchdown. Favre only attempted four passes in his Falcons career, but nevertheless, this was the where it all started for the 2016 Hall of Fame inductee, who will go down as one of the best quarterbacks ever to take the field.

    Presented here is one of the most historically significant lots representing the Ol' Gunslinger and three-time league MVP.It is the original Atlanta Falcons scouting report for the team's entire '91 NFL Draft, presented in its original binder (some separation at the binding, but still intact). Never-before-seen original NFL Combine 8x10" photographs are included for each player, in addition to handwritten and photo copies of scouting reports and other intriguing documents. The Brett Favre section includes 16 original pages in all, while several scouts and coaches described him as: "A player that makes it happen," "Is tough and can zip it in, "Rushes a lot of throws" and much more. Brett's auto accident before his senior year in college is also a heavy topic in the reports: "Several origins bruises, had 30 inches of dead intestines removed."

    A must-have for the advanced Favre collector or NFL historian - or the Pro Football Hall of Fame, for that matter.
