Mario Clark was drafted by the Bills in the first round of the 1976 draft and he certainly lived up to the hype.  He quickly established himself as a shutdown corner with a nose for the football and snagged 25 interceptions in his first six seasons.  His career faded quickly, though.  After two final subpar years for the Bills, he hooked on with the San Francisco 49ers as a nickel back in 1984.  It was his last season in the NFL, but he went out on top, winning Super Bowl XIX.
