    Good points, Ralph. It's difficult narrowing it down to 10, but I went with Tait because of his Pro Bowl appearances. Yes, Gravelle and Holmoe have Super Bowl rings, but neither excelled at their positions in the same fashion as those on the list. I'll add them to the Honorable Mention, though. Thanks for writing.

    One big miss on the BYU to NFL list is Gordon Gravelle. Gravelle was a starting offensive tackle for the Steelers and won two Super Bowl rings. His skill level and career in the NFL were at least the equivalent of John Tait's and he played for much better teams. And don't forget our own AD Tom Holmoe who has 3 SB rings on his desk from his 49er career.
