18. Darren Woodson

Darren Woodson was a second round pick from Arizona State in 1992, and the year after, he was the team's starting Strong Safety.  In those two years, he helped Dallas win the Super Bowl, but he would have a much more significant role in the team moving forward.

Woodson would go to his first Pro Bowl in 1994 and would go to the next four thereafter.  The Defensive Back would also earn First Team All-Pro honors in 1994, 1995 & 1996, and he was a large part of the Cowboys win at Super Bowl XXX.  He played with Dallas until he retired in 2004, thus keeping his entire career in "Big D."

Woodson retired with 23 Interceptions, and in 2015, he was inducted into the Cowboys Ring of Honor.
