With the 11th overall pick in the 1966 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Stan Hindman, defensive lineman, out of the University of Mississippi. The Houston Oilers in the 2nd round of the 1966 AFL Draft also picked up Hindman. Unfortunately for the Oilers, Hindman decided to pack his bags to San Francisco. Hindman played 7 seasons between 1966 and 1974 (missing the entire 1972, 1973 seasons) for the 49ers. In 1968, Hindman returned the only interception of his career 25 yards for a touchdown. In his time with the team, he also recovered 2 fumbles. After 76 games (started 37), Hindman would leave the game of football. Upon his retirement, Hindman would study architecture at UCLA, and he would receive his Master of Architecture in 1981.
