22. Deron Cherry

Usually, Punters don’t have much of a Hall of Fame shot.  It is a good thing for Deron Cherry that he focused on being a Safety.  It is a better thing for the Kansas City Chiefs as Cherry became one of the best at that position.

Using his athletic gifts, Deron Cherry emerged as a top defensive star in the NFL.  Once he became a star, he was among the league's most consistent players.  Although he never led the league in interceptions, Cherry was a very good open-field tackler and was rarely beat one on one.  For his efforts, Cherry was a six-time Pro Bowl Selection and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team for the 1980s.
