8. Tom Mack, Los Angeles Rams (1966)

Who better to protect Gabriel than another No. 2 pick? Mack is one of the greatest left guards in NFL history, as he never missed a game in his 13-year career and was named to the Pro Bowl a remarkable 11 times in his career. The Michigan man was an All-Pro three times during that span.

While Mack never managed to win a Super Bowl, his Rams teams won a tremendous 72% of their games, won the division eight times, and advanced to the NFC Championship game four times. Those LA teams were some of the more underrated of their era, and Mack was at the center (or left, technically) of it all.

Von Miller was a quality No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft

7. Von Miller, Denver Broncos (2011)

Age and injuries may have sapped Miller's effectiveness lately, but the Texas A&M product was perhaps as good a pure pass rusher as there was in the league for a decade. No wonder the Broncos and Rams both won Super Bowls with Miller screaming off the edge.

Miller can rest his head on eight Pro Bowls, seven All-Pro nods (three First-Team), and two Defensive Player of the Year runner-up finishes. In his career, Miller currently has 123.5 sacks thanks to a span in which he topped double-digits in seven of his first eight seasons in the league.
