2. Jim Taylor, Green Bay Packers (1958)

Taylor was the offensive engine of the most iconic teams in NFL history: Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers. Lombardi was all about grinding opponents down with a powerful running game, and no player had more of a direct result in their consistent excellence on the ground than Taylor.

The 1962 NFL MVP, Taylor ran for 6,069 yards and 66 touchdowns in 67 games between 1960 and 1964. The bruising running back, who was the only player to win a rushing title during Jim Brown's career, won four NFL championships in the 1960s, riding the famous "Packer Sweep"play to a legendary career as the battering ram for Lombardi's best.

Alan Page is the greatest No. 15 pick in NFL Draft history

1. Alan Page, Minnesota Vikings (1967)

Even four decades after he last suited up, Page might be the greatest defensive tackle the game has ever seen. The best Notre Dame defensive player ever remains the only defensive tackle to win league MVP in 1971, and his sparkling career has helped him rack up a list of accolades that few, if any, can even come close to. Even without a ring, Page is an all-time great.

Page made nine Pro Bowls in a row and was named to seven All-Pro teams (five First-Team) during a legendary career that spanned 12 seasons with the Vikings and four with the Bears. Page has been unofficially credited with 148.5 sacks, which would rank eighth all-time and first among defensive tackles. No. 88 remains the standard after all these years.
