As the NFL has taught us throughout its existence, there definitely isn’t one “type” of player who is predisposed for success over another.
From Maurice Jones-Drew to Harold Carmichael, they certainly come in all sizes. And that same idea applies to players on more than just height disparity.
One area where NFL players have been surprisingly lacking has been in a certain quarterback category. I'm referring of course to those who throw lefty. The southpaws.
This is a particularly relevant topic for Denver football fans, as they survey their team's chances with Tim Tebow likely to feature prominently at some point.
The former Florida star is still a relatively unknown quantity in the NFL, so he'll certainly have a chance to put himself on this list. But make not mistake, he's far from it right now.
And now a look at some of the lefties he'll have to emulate (because for every success story there's more than a few failures.)
It's important to realize that this is a top five because there really aren't that many great lefties out there. There were some tough cuts (Frank Albert who was dominant in his day) and some easy ones (I'm sorry, but Scott Mitchell just couldn't make a "Best" anything list, unless it was "Best Generic Names" list).
