Steve Riley was the Vikings first round pick out of USC in 1974.  For the next decade, he would be one of the anchors of the Vikes' offensive line.  The Vikings advanced to their third Super Bowl during Riley's rookie season.  Two years later, in 1976 (Riley's first season as a starter), they made it to the big game again.  Riley would play for another eight seasons, spending his entire career in Minnesota.
