5. Raymond Berry
Raymond Berry was all about the details with every aspect of his game.  An expert route runner, Berry rarely fumbled or dropped passes and was essential to the two consecutive Baltimore Colts Championships in the late 1950s.  Most notably, he caught 12 passes in the 1958 Championship Game for 178 Yards and a Touchdown.  

Berry would lead the NFL in receptions three times as well as receiving yards three times.  He would amass 9,275 Yards and 68 Touchdowns, an incredible number for his time period.
