1968 Profile: Paul Costa

Tight End
No. 82
Notre Dame
"He may not yet be in Mike Ditka's class as a tight end, but Paul Costa is progressing toward that level of play. Regarded as probably the strongest man on the squad, the 6-4, 256-pounder has immense chest development and powerful though supple hands. And despite his size, he can run 50 yards in 5.6 seconds.
Paul displayed his better points last year - his third as a pro - when he caught 39 passes for 726 yards and two touchdowns; he caught one scoring pass on a 63-yard play, and he averaged 18.6 yards per catch.
Paul played his college football at Notre Dame and came to the Bills when they traded with Kansas City for the rights to him."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1968
