March 24, 1960

AFL commissioner Joe Foss announced that Oakland had selected Ben Donnell, center, from the Chargers in the first round of the allocation draft. Expected to play defense in the pro game, Donnell, a seventh round pick of the Detroit Lions in 1959, had left training camp voluntarily that summer, but was giving it another go in the AFL. The remaining six selections in the first round remained unnamed.
