According to the Pensacola News Journal article, at the gathering of football royalty at the Rose Bowl that day even though Bo Jackson played two professional sports, Ward was the only one who had the distinction of being first round draft pick for the NBA:

“Of all Heisman Trophy winners, Ward has distinction of being the only one to take his two-sport stardom into being a first round draft pick in the NBA. Bo Jackson, of course, became a star in both the NFL and major league baseball.”

Charlie Ward is a retired American professional NBA basketball player, college football Heisman Trophy winner, Davey O’Brien Award winner and a Major League Baseball draftee.
