1966 Profile: Wray Carlton

No. 30
"For six years, Wray Carlton has been playing halfback. Most of that time he has been a second banana, especially when Cookie Gilchrist was playing fullback for the Bills. This season though, Wray will have to step front and center. He'll shift over to fullback, mainly because Buffalo has nobody to play there, and he'll have to make like a fair facsimile of Cookie. Carlton, who played his college football at Duke, has the muscle at 6-1 and 225 pounds. And in one respect, being a fullback may help him - he won't have to run outside quite so much. He simply doesn't possess that kind of speed; he never has."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1966
