11. John Henderson

What is John Henderson best known for?  Probably for having a trainer slap him hard in the face to get motivated for a game.  That might be the most common image of Henderson, but there were a lot of great moments that the mammoth Defensive Tackle had with the Jaguars.

A First Round pick from the University of Tennessee, Henderson was a member of the 2002 All-Rookie Team.  Throughout his career in Jacksonville, Henderson was a strong presence in the interior, and he was rewarded twice as a Pro Bowl Selection (2004 & 2006).  In the latter Pro Bowl Selection, Henderson was named a Second Team All-Pro.

With the Jags, Henderson would have 29 Sacks with 426 Combined Tackles.
