I picked 3rd in a serpentine style all time mock draft and the following is the team I drafted for Bill Walsh to coach. My first round pick was Joe Montana to reunite with his head coach and run that perfect West Coast Offense. The rest of my team is picked with as much value and most importantly scheme fit as I could manage. My defense is a 3-4 base defense with players that all played in a base 3-4 defense. After the Jump the roster will be listed.
QB: Joe Montana, San Fransisco 49ers
Greatest QB of all time in my opinion.
HB: Barry Sanders, Detroit Lion
My favorite player to ever lace up his cleats and I think a challenger for best running back ever.
WR: Michael Irvin, Dallas Cowboys
A dominant WR that had 47 100 yard receiving games in only 159 games played.
WR: Andre Reed, Buffalo Bills
10th in receptions, 9th in receiving yards, and 11th in receiving touchdowns. Consistent and durable playmaker.
TE: Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City Chiefs
The all time leader in receiving yards, touchdowns, and catches by a tight end in the nfl. Also an underrated blocker.
TE: Shannon Sharpe, Denver Broncos
Great receiving threat with over 10,000 receiving yards and nearly 70 touchdowns as a tight end.
Roaf anchored one of the best lines in history for Kansas City and made 11 pro bowls in his career. Will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.
LG: Ruben Brown, Buffalo Bills
A nine time pro bowler in a 13 year career.
C: Jim Langer, Miami Dolphins
Hall of Fame center with six consecutive pro bowls with four all-pro awards during that stretch.
RG: Stan Jones, Chicago Bears
Hall of Fame guard that was in the pro bowl 7 times and an all pro 3 times during the 50's.
RT: Joe Jacoby, Washington Redskins
Hall of Fame offensive tackle from the "hogs" and made 4 straight pro bowls during this time along with 3 super bowl victories.
LDE: Neil Smith, Kansas City Chiefs / Denver Broncos
One of the best 3-4 pass rushing defensive lineman of all time. 6 pro bowls and 104.5 sacks in his career.
NT: Curley Culp, Kansas City Chiefs
The original NT and a truly powerful man. A hall of fame snub that accumulated 68 sacks and 14 forced fumbles. Made the pro bowl 5 times in his career.
RDE: Howie Long, Oakland Raiders
Hall of fame defensive lineman with 8 pro bowls and 91.5 sacks in his career.
WOLB: Andre Tippett, New England Patriots
Highest two consecutive season sack total in history with 35 sacks in two seasons. 100 sacks in his career. 5 time pro bowler.
Lewis is one of the best ILB'ers of all time and is a dominating force in the middle. Future first ballot hall of famer. Member of the 30 sack and 30 interception club. Has made 13 pro bowls and twice been defensive player of the year.
SILB: Willie Lanier, Kansas City Chiefs
Known for his violent hits and run stopping ability he also had 27 interceptions in his 8 time all pro career. Hall of Famer and the first african american MLB.
Porter is a fierce competitor and motivator that has 98 sacks and 12 interceptions in his career. A 4 time pro bowler and all pro who notched a 17 sack season in miami.
CB: Deion Sanders, Dallas Cowboys / Atlanta Falcons
The greatest cover corner in the history of the NFL and a threat every time he touched the ball. Hall of famer, 8 time all pro, and NFC defensive player of the year twice.
CB: Emmitt Thomas, Kansas City Chiefs
Another member of that great chiefs defense he was in 5 pro bowls and had 58 career interceptions. Hall of Famer
FS: Ed Reed, Baltimore Ravens
My favorite safety of all time because of his threat to score a touchdown every time he touches the ball. 8 time all pro, first ballot hall of famer, with 57 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles.
Harrison is underrated by many but he was the first player in history to have 30 interceptions and 30 sacks, the other person being Ray Lewis, and he also was a 4 time all pro that won two titles. Should be a hall of famer.
K: John Carney, K, Several Teams
