2. Champ Bailey
A top Cornerback for years, Champ Bailey holds the record for the most Pro Bowl Selections for his position at twelve. Bailey, who was drafted by the Washington Redskins, had a great run in the nation’s capital was traded to the Broncos where he would continue his dominance and would be named the NFL Alumni Defensive Back of the Year in 2006 and would also be named to the 2000’s All Decade Team and the 50th Anniversary team of the Broncos.

While Bailey did not set a lot of Interception records (Quarterbacks did not want to throw in his direction for obvious reasons), he was considered amongst the top players for his position for such a long period of time that it will be very hard for Canton to ignore even though they have not exactly been known to respect Defensive Backs right away.
