Great Redskins Drafts: A Look At 1964

Posted Apr 19, 2012

Redskins.com's Gary Fitzgerald takes a look back at the franchise's greatest drafts. In 1964, the Redskins selected three all-time greats in Hall of Famers Charley Taylor and Paul Krause and six-time Pro Bowler Len Hauss.


Redskins.com's Gary Fitzgerald takes a look back at some of the great Redskins draft classes in franchise history:

1964 REDSKINS DRAFT:

1. Charley Taylor, HB, Arizona State
2. Paul Krause, S, Iowa
5. Jim Snowden, T, Notre Dame
6. Russ Brown, E, Florida
7. Dick Shiner, QB, Maryland
9. Len Hauss, C, Georgia
10. Rick Leeson, B, Pittsburgh
11. Gene Donaldson, LB, Iowa
12. Bob Avolerin, T, Tennessee
13. Tom McDonals, B, Notre Dame
14. Tom Urbanik, B, Penn State
15. Dick Evers, T, Colorado State
16. Tommy Walters, B, S. Mississippi
17. Ozzie Clay, B, Iowa State
18. Bob Jones, G, Nebraska
19. John Seedborg, P, Arizona State
20. Fordon Guest, B, Arkansas


The first two selections of the 1964 draft class -- first-rounder Charley Taylor and second-rounder Paul Krause -- are Hall of Famers. Ninth-round pick Len Hauss was a dominant center for more than a decade.

That’s three Redskins greats in one draft.

And that puts the Redskins’ 1964 NFL Draft near the top of the franchise’s great draft classes.

Taylor, of course, remains a legendary figure in Redskins lore.

Paul Krause

He was the Redskins’ first pick in 1964, out of Arizona State, and he played his entire career in Washington.

A six-time Pro Bowler, Taylor logged 649 career receptions, second-most in franchise history, for 9,110 receiving yards and 79 touchdowns.

He still holds the Redskins franchise record for most career touchdowns with 90.

Krause, a safety out of Iowa, played just four seasons with the Redskins--but they were four remarkable seasons.

Krause made his mark in his first NFL game when he intercepted two passes.

As a rookie, he was named to the All-Pro team after recording 12 interceptions.

In four seasons in Washington, Krause recorded 28 interceptions, sixth most in franchise history. The Redskins unwittingly traded Krause to Minnesota after the 1967 season.

Krause went on to play 12 more seasons in Minnesota. He would set an NFL record with 81 career interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns.

Fifth-round pick Jim Snowden, out of Notre Dame, was a big-sized offensive lineman who emerged in 1965. He played some defensive line for the Redskins as well.

Overall, Snowden played in 98 games for the Redskins from 1965-71.

Seventh-rounder Dick Shiner, a quarterback out of Maryland, would play three seasons in Washington as a backup to Sonny Jurgensen.

He saw action in 1965, completing 28-of-65 passes for 470 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions.

Shiner played in the NFL for 10 seasons, with stints in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots.

Len Hauss

Ninth-rounder Hauss, a center out of Georgia, turned out to be a great value pick for the Redskins in 1964.

He played 14 seasons for the Redskins, starting 192 consecutive games along the way.

Hauss was a six-time Pro Bowler at center from 1967-72 and was a key lineman on the Redskins’ Super Bowl team in 1972.

Along ith Taylor and Krause, Hauss was named to the Redskins’ 70 Greatest team in 2002.

Tommy Walters, a 15th-round defensive back out of Southern Mississippi, played four NFL seasons and had an impact in the Redskins’ secondary. In his rookie season, Walters had two interceptions.

Ozzie Clay, a 16th-round wide receiver and kick return specialist, and John Seedborg, a 17th-round punter, each played one season for the Redskins.
