34. Chuck Drazenovich

An alumni of Penn State, Chuck Drazenovich, played his entire pro career with the Washington Redskins (1950-59).


Drazenovich played on both sides in the first half of his career, where the Linebacker would also go in at Fullback, rushing for a total of 330 Yards. In the second half of his career, Drazenovich settled more in at Linebacker, where he earned four straight Pro Bowls (1955-58) with a pair of Second Team All-Pro Selections thrown in for good measure.  

The Redskins of the 1950s were predominantly on the lower half of the standings, but Drazenovich brought respectability to their defense, and he was one of their best players of the decade.
