With the 11th pick of the 1954 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Bernie Faloney, halfback, out of the University of Maryland. However, this pick was an absolute WASTE. Faloney did not play a down for the 49ers and I would be surprised if he ever even made his way to San Francisco one way or another. The 49ers offered Faloney $9000 to play defensive back and back-up quarterback. However, he was lured to play in the CFL when the Edmonton Eskimos offered him $12500. It seems that the 1954 NFL Draft was a weak one, as only Raymond Berry, a wide receiver selected in the 20th round would be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
