35. Montell Owens

Undrafted out of Maine, Montell Owens would find a home with Jacksonville, where he became one of their best Special Teams player in franchise history.

Owens became known for his tackling, so much so, that there was a small contingent of fans who dubbed him “Mowens," and wore the additional “m” in front of his jersey name.  In 2009, he set a team record with 30 Special Teams Tackles, and over his Jaguars career, he would have 118, also a team record.  He would go to the Pro Bowl in both 2011 and 2012 as the AFC Special Teams representative.

Owens also occasionally participated in the offense and on the defense, making him incredibly versatile.
