Rank 'Em: All-Time Best NFL Players

Created: February 3, 2010, 8:57 AM

Is Barry Sanders the best player of all time?

The gridiron has seen legendary players come and go over the years, but only a few are in the discussion to be considered the greatest NFL player of all time.

Quarterbacks Otto Graham, Johnny Unitas, Sammy Baugh and Joe Montana make up a large portion of our list, but we've given RBs Jim Brown, Walter Payton, and Barry Sanders their due. Jerry Rice and Don Hutson are the wide receivers in consideration and Lawrence Taylor is the lone defensive player to make our top 10 -- a testament to his fearsome dominance at linebacker.
