Craig Morton was selected by Dallas Cowboys in the first round (5th overall) of the 1965 NFL Draft. In 1969 he became the starter at quarterback after Meredith's surprising retirement. In 1970, although he was bothered most of the season recuperating from offseason right shoulder and right elbow surgeries, he led the Cowboys to Super Bowl V where the team lost a close game to the Baltimore Colts.
