35. Richard Seymour
Although the New England Patriots were praised for their offense in the 2000’s, they did have a more than capable defense, much of which could be attributed to Richard Seymour.

Capable of adjusting to different schemes effortlessly, Seymour would earn seven Pro Bowl selections and three First Team All-Pro nods and would also be named to the prestigious 2000’s All-Decade Team. As the leader of the Patriots defense that won three Super Bowls in the 2000s,  Already a multi-time Finalist, Seymour has to be considered a solid threat to have a bust in Canton.
