Only 28 of the 81 selections in the first NFL Draft in 1936 played in the league. The reasons varied — money, army enlistment, other job offers. The third-overall pick was among the 53 draftees who didn't play a snap; he was too busy with his writing career.
The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Notre Dame back William Shakespeare with the third pick. Shakespeare was the third of more than 25,000 players drafted over from 1936-2018. There was a Pizza, a Proverb and a Captain. A Hooker (a Fair one), Rambo and Tongue, along with Fred Funk, Woodrow Wilson, John Snow and Karim Abdul-Jabbar.
Pool and Box. Sandy and Sharpe. Prince and Butler. And don't forget Le-Lo, Az-Zahir or Gbaja-Biamila.
