1964 Profile: Mike Stratton

Linebacker
No. 58
Tennessee
"It was rather obvious that the Bills' short defense was not at its best during a four-game period last year when Mike Stratton had to miss action. A linebacker on the right side, the violent tackler from Vonore, Tennessee helped the runners keep their assaults to a minimum and the passers seldom bothered to test his very sharp reactions and were content to concentrate on probing other areas of the Bill defense.
He was considered an offensive end when drafted in '62 but he was too promising a defender."

-Don Schiffer, Pro Football 1964
