107. Lance Briggs
Playing his entire twelve year career with the Chicago Bears, Lance Briggs was often in the shadow of teammate, Brian Urlacher but he was nevertheless a star in the National Football League. Briggs would make seven consecutive Pro Bowls but there is a good chance that he is closer to being a preliminary nominee as opposed to a bona fide Hall of Fame contender.
