26. Goose Gonsoulin

Arguably the best Safety in the American Football League days of the Denver Broncos, Goose Gonsoulin would lead the AFL in Interceptions as a rookie in 1960, which coincidentally was also the “rookie” year of the AFL.  Gonsoulin would finish in the top eight in pick the next five seasons, and he would be an AFL All-Star four times while also being named a First Team All-AFL selection twice.  At the time of his signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 1967, he was the all-time leader (though passed) in Interceptions with 40.
