With the NFL Draft approaching, here is a picture featuring the No. 1 picks of the 1968 and 1969 drafts.

On Dec. 13, 1967, USC sent some players to 20th Century Fox studios in Hollywood, where they visited the set of the movie, “Star!”

From left are USC players Ron Yary, Tim Rossovich, O.J. Simpson and Adrian Young. Julie Andrews is holding the football. Also in the photo is famous director Robert Wise, who directed “The Sound of Music” and “West Side Story.”

Yary was the No. 1 pick in the 1968 draft while Simpson was No. 1 in the 1969 draft.
