4. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions (2007)

The man they called Megatron may have only played nine seasons and had six in which he was in his prime, but the 6-5, 235-pound science experiment would tally six straight Pro Bowl nods, four All-Pro teams, and two seasons in which he led the NFL in receiving yards. His 1,964 yards in 2013 is a record that still stands.

Johnson's average season from 2010 to 2015 consisted of 90 catches, 1,425 yards, and 10 touchdowns on some largely poor Lions teams. The league was deprived of something special when he let the game, as he piled up those numbers with every team knowing that all they had to do to win was slow him down, and they still couldn't do it.

Calvin Johnson was an amazing No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft

3.. Randy White, Dallas Cowboys (1975)

With a name like "The Manster," you have to be a fairly tough individual. One of the strongest and most intimidating players in NFL history, White may have a spot on the Mount Rushmore of defensive tackles in NFL history thanks to a ferocious style of play that made him such a dominant force.

The former Maryland star finished his career with nine consecutive Pro Bowl nods, eight straight All-Pro teams, and six top-five Defensive Player of the Year finishes in a seven-year span. White has been unofficially credited with 111 sacks, one of a handful of defensive tackles to ever top 100 in their career.
