QBs Warren Rabb on Louisiana State and QB Vernon Cole of North Texas State were selected in the first AFL Draft in 1960. The choices were not made in specific numerical order. Rabb was a second-round choice that year by the Detroit Lions, and he ended up playing three seasons with the Lions and then Buffalo, appearing in 30 games. Cole did not play in pro football. Plus, Bobby Hunt was selected in the 1961 AFL Draft out of Auburn and listed as a QB, his college position. He was moved to safety by the Texans and never played under center.
