Pro Sports Xchange is now bringing you the second update, or third edition, of the 1997 Bill Walsh NFL Draft Insider -- a final analysis.

Hall of Fame coach Bill Walsh's wizardry in the draft helped build a San Francisco 49ers dynasty that won five Super Bowl Championships.

During his 10 years as head coach, the 49ers won three Super Bowls and drafted 18 players who went on to be selected for the Pro Bowl, including two future Hall of Famers -- quarterback Joe Montana and wide receiver Jerry Rice.

In this 1997 NFL Draft Insider, Bill Walsh shares his rare insight into how to evaluate players at every position, and more.

In this final edition of our three-part package, Pro Sports Xchange adds a complete post-draft evaluation on every player picked.
