148. Vince Wilfork
Vince Wilfork was one of the most popular players in New England Patriots history and by many accounts one of the nicest guys ever to play on the gridiron.  While all of that is fine and good, the most important facet that Pats fans really think of is that he was so fundamentally good.

Wilfork was a five-time Pro Bowl selection, four of which were accomplished consecutively (2009-12).  The Nose Tackle helped New England win two Super Bowls and was also named an All-Pro four times.
