Exclusive Interview with Willie Buchanon
Willie Buchanon was one of the best cornerback prospects ever to enter the NFL when he was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1972. He didn’t disappoint, becoming a starter his rookie season and intercepting four passes.
Buchanon’s best season came in 1978, his final year with the Packers, when he picked off nine passes, made the Pro Bowl and was an All Pro. That season he picked four passes in one game against the San Diego Chargers — an NFL record.
Perhaps ironically, he signed with the Chargers after the season.
In this exclusive interview, the Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer talks about his four-interception game, teaching in the offseason and how injuries made him better.
