All-Time Greatest NFL Players By Jersey Numbers: 51-60
Now, the sixth installment!
51: Dick Butkus
The most frightening player in NFL history, this monster went to 8 consecutive Pro Bowls, was a member of the 1960s and 1970s All-Decade teams, and was a first ballot Hall of Famer.
52: Ray Lewis
This 2-time Defensive Player of the Year has been to 11 Pro Bowls, was All-Pro 9 times, and has a good case for being the greatest inside linebacker of all time.
53: Randy Grandishar
The leader of the "Orange Crush" defense was Defensive Player of the Year and reportedly recorded over 2,000 tackles.
54: Randy White
As a Bears fan, I wish I could up Brian Urlacher, but this is the "Manster". He went to 9 straight Pro Bowls, was a 9-time First-Team All-Pro, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1994.
55: Junior Seau
Coming out of USC in 1990, he was suppose to be decent. By 2003, he went to 12 straight Pro Bowls and was First-Team All-Pro 7 times.
56: Lawrence Taylor
He went to 10 straight Pro Bowls, First-Team All-Pro 9 straight times, and a record 3-time Defensive Player of the Year.
57: Rickey Jackson
A 2010 Hall of Famer, Jackson made 128 sacks and was a member of the greatest linebacking corp ever.
58: Jack Lambert
One of the leaders of the "Steel Curtain", Lambert went to 9 straight Pro Bowls and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1990.
59: Jack Ham
Along with Lambert, Ham was a Hall of Famer and helped the Pittsburgh Steelers win 4 Super Bowls in the 1970s.
60: Chuck Bednarik
As the last two-way player, Bednarik was a center on offense and linebacker on defense. He also knocked Kathie Lee Gifford's husband into another dimension.
