6. Aqib Talib, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2008)

The former Kansas great lived two very distinct lives in the NFL. After becoming a pesky cornerback in Tampa Bay and coming so agonizingly close to winning a title with the Patriots, Talib moved to the Broncos in 2014, becoming one of the greatest cornerbacks of the decade while he was at it.

Talib made a Pro Bowl every year in Denver, helping him end his 12-year career with five total nods and two All-Pro designations. Injuries with the Rams hastened the end of his football life, but Talib at his best had a legitimate claim to the title of best cornerback in the league for a two-year stretch.

Aqib Talib turned out be a great No. 20 pick in the NFL Draft

5. Tamba Hali, Kansas City Chiefs (2006)

The Chiefs have a strong tradition of pass rushers over the years, and Hali became the next great sack artist when he arrived in Kansas City after a strong career at Penn State. Hali eventually teamed with Justin Houston to form one of the greatest pass rush tandems in the history of the league.

When Hali called time on his pro career after 12 seasons, he had 89.5 sacks, five Pro Bowls, and two Second Team All-Pro selections piled up on his resume. It's a shame Hali's career was overshadowed by bad Chiefs teams and horrid quarterback play, as he was a terror on the edge.
