3. Ed Reed
Ed Reed was one of the top Safeties for years and will likely join his longtime defensive stalwart, Ray Lewis into the Hall of Fame. The Defensive Back and noted "ball hawk" would lead the NFL in Interceptions three times and Interception Return Yards twice. Reed, while looking like a grizzled veteran even as a rookiewould almost instantly become a star defensive player for Baltimore and in the NFL in general.    

Reed was the Free Safety for the Ravens Super Bowl squad and with five First Team All Pro Selections and as of this writing is the all-time leader in Interception Return Yards and entrenched in the top ten in Interceptions.
