No. 1 ... The Colts are the fifth team in Super Bowl history whose leading rusher (Joseph Addai, photo), passer (Peyton Manning) and receiver (Marvin Harrison) are all first-round draft picks. All four of the previous teams who can claim that won their Super Bowl -- the 1972 Dolphins (Earl Morrall, Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield), the 1985 Bears (Jim McMahon, Walter Payton, Willie Gault) and the 1993 and 1994 Cowboys (Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin). Bob Griese, not Morrall, started the Super Bowl, but he was also a first-round pick.
