BILLY SHAW. Old AFL men will tell you this Buffalo guard was as good as anyone who ever played. Great strength and savvy, a shade behind Hannah and Parker in speed.
STAN JONES, LEO NOMELLINI, GEORGE CONNOR, CHUCK BEDNARIK. Defensive legends for Chicago, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia, respectively, who turned around and made All-Pro on offense. Jones was one of the earliest disciples of weightlifting.
AL BLOZIS. Relatively a stringbean at 6'6�" and 250 pounds who was famous for his defensive work with the Giants, but Kilroy says his real future was on offense. "He had the quickest feet I've ever seen on a guy that size." Killed in World War II. He had played pro ball three years. At Fort Benning he set an Army record by heaving a grenade 94 yards, 2 feet, 6� inches. At one time he held the world indoor shotput record at 56'4�".
AL WISTERT, VIC LINDSKOG. 1940-era Eagles. Smaller guys, precision blockers, stars in training manuals.
ROOSEVELT BROWN. Eight-time All-Pro tackle for the Giants. Greyhound type. Eyecatching on the sweeps or downfield. Quick rather than overpowering.
BOB ST. CLAIR. A 49er who was the prototype of the crusher-type tackles now personified by St. Louis' DAN DIERDORF and Oakland's ART SHELL.
DICK STANFEL, BOB REYNOLDS. Started as big, rawboned kids for Detroit and St. Louis, respectively, and ended as great finesse and position blockers.
GENE UPSHAW. Knows tricks they haven't even invented yet, even in Oakland.
JIM OTTO. Twelve All-Pro years. Incredible iron man. Never missed a game in 15 years as Oakland center.
MARVIN POWELL. He's the heir apparent. The Jet tackle just needs to string a few of those All-Pro years together.
