15. Chris Doleman
Chris Doleman was without question one of the most feared pass rushers of his time and accumulated 96.5 of his 150.5 Quarterback Sacks while donning Vikings purple.  Doleman would have 21 of those Sacks in 1989, one of two seasons he was chosen to be a First Team All-Pro.  The former Pitt Panther would leave Minnesota via trade to Atlanta but the Hall of Famer would be able to finish his career wearing a Vikings uniform.

Doleman entered the Vikings Ring of Honor in 2007.
