1967 Profile: Jim Dunaway

Defensive Tackle
No. 78
Mississippi
"During last year's All-Star Game, an offensive lineman sent this message to Jim Dunaway through a neutral: 'Tell that big farmer this is only an All-Star Game. He's been beating on my head all day.' That's the tipoff on this 6'4", 297-pound hulk of a man who plays defensive left tackle for the Bills. He doesn't know when or how to take it easy.
Now in his fifth AFL year, he has played with marked improvement each season, and now is one of the most feared pass rushers in the league.
Jim was a unanimous All-America at Mississippi and was drafted No. 2 by the Bills, as well as first by the Minnesota Vikings."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1967
