35. Lawyer Milloy

Lawyer Milloy became a starter during his rookie season, recording two Interceptions and was named an All-Rookie.  The Patriots went to the Super Bowl that year with Milloy recording eight Tackles.

From his rookie year on, Milloy was established as the star of the Patriots secondary, going to four Pro Bowls (1998, 1999, 2001 & 2002), and having five straight seasons of 112-plus Tackles years (1997-01).  Milloy was named a First Team All-Pro in 1999, and he helped lead the Patriots back to the Super Bowl in 2001, this time with the Pats winning it all.
