Jerry Jones’ Portfolio of QB Draftees: #1 Troy Aikman
The simplest selection Jerry Jones has ever made in 25 years of drafting was his first. It also may go down in history as his finest.
Picking Troy Aikman with the No. 1 overall selection of the 1989 NFL Draft not only provided the Dallas Cowboys with a franchise quarterback, but a Hall of Fame quarterback as well. Aikman was enshrined in Canton in 2006 after a 12-year career that witnessed three Super Bowl titles and a record ninety victories during the 1990’s.
