71. LeRoy Butler
When LeRoy Butler was at the top of his game, there were few Safeties who could touch him.  The problem for opposing teams was that Butler was at his best a lot.

LeRoy Butler was a career long Green Bay packer and was the captain of their secondary.  There was little he couldn’t do as he registered sacks, interceptions, forced fumbles and was a deadly tackler.  It is no stretch to say that Butler’s play was a big part of the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl Run in the 90’s.  Subsequently, he was named to the NFL 1990’s All Decade Team.

LeRoy Butler had four Pro Bowl seasons and was a dominant superstar in those campaigns.  Should he ever get a look from Canton, it will be based on those years, as the rest of his career was just above average.
