    I'm surprised I'm the only one who mentioned T.O. so far. Yeah he may have been a basket-case, but he also hauled in 38 TD in three seasons.

    Replace Flozell with Erik Williams and your lineup is absolutely awesome. BTW, it is too bad that we never drafted a real LT when we had Flozell. I feel he would have been a HOF RT in this league. I also feel his penalties would have been cut to almost none, since his better hearing ear (the left ear) would have been on the QB side. However, as great as Flozell could have been at RT, I never saw another OL manhandle Reggie White the way Erik Williams did.

    Love this list, but would replace Hayes with Hill. I'd also add an extra TE with Novacek. But, man, Cosbie and Dupree were also good.

    Rayfield Wright was not a left tackle - Neely was.

    I took the pre-1994 Williams over Wright at RT because Williams, pre-injury, was one of the most dominant, intimidating tackles that I had ever seen play.

    I selected players based off of their actual positions, not their position groups.

    Agree with you on Williams he was unbelievable before the car accident.

    As a former TE, I think Rayfield could have played LT. Erik Williams is RT all the way.

    And, using that logic, as a former QB, Drew Pearson could have been an NFL QB.

    It's not a question of could. It's a question of what position they actually played in the NFL. Wright was a RT. So was Erik Williams. I think Williams was the more dominant player for the stretch of 1991-1994.

    Talk about apples to oranges. It is not uncommon for OL to move around the line/switch sides. I brought up his athleticsim and agility (former TE and basketball player) to support this. Your analogy was not only off point but bordering on the ludicrous.
