Leon Lett

DT, Seventh Round, Dallas Cowboys, 1991

Out of tiny Emporia State, Lett burst into the Cowboys' starting lineup in 1994 and made the first of his two Pro Bowl appearances that season. One of the most dominant defensive tackles of his time, Lett was a member of three Cowboys Super Bowl championship teams, starting in Super Bowls XXVIII and XXX. Lett's off-the-field indiscretions and questionable plays (getting the ball swiped out of his hands in the Super Bowl and knocking the ball out of the back of the end zone against the Dolphins on Thanksgiving) sometimes tarnish his image, but he was a force in his 11-year career.
