31.  John Lynch
Although Warren Sapp received most of the attention of the famed Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense, Strong Safety, John Lynch anchored the secondary and leveled anyone who actually could get past their linemen.

With precision tackling and punishing hits, John Lynch quickly became a popular player in Florida and was respected throughout the NFL. Lynch’s strong play was rewarded with multiple Pro Bowl and All-Pro Selections, but as a solid team player, his greatest reward was the Super Bowl Ring that he won with Tampa that was earned primarily on their defensive abilities. Entering his first year of eligibility, we consider Lynch likely on the wrong side of the bubble, and we are very curious whether the decision makers in question agree or not.

Should John Lynch be in the Hall of Fame?

I'm pretty sure it was Warren Sapp who called him "the hardest hitting white boy he'd ever seen."
