No. 5: OT Trent Williams
During Williams’ tenure in Washington and San Francisco, the former Oklahoma Sooner has been a wall of granite, with only a few exceptional pass rushers even daring to get by him and get to whatever QB he is blocking for. With several Pro Bowl seasons and not to mention the sheer athletic ability for such a big man, it’s almost impossible to overlook Williams.
Unfortunately, he does not have a Super Bowl ring yet, which can still be accomplished. Given how San Francisco is in a weakened NFC, it is not out of the question that Williams could find himself on the big stage if everything goes according to plan. If Williams can capture a ring, there is no more room for debates, and his bust should be constructed immediately; it should’ve already been going on.
No. 4: K Justin Tucker
A kicker? Ladies and gentlemen, this is no ordinary kicker. This is an undrafted kicker from Texas who won the kicking job with Baltimore outright due in large part to the struggles of Billy Cundiff. Everything happens for a reason, and Tucker has the record for the longest field goal in NFL history with 66 yards. When he’s coming on for a kick, more often than not, it’s going to go through.
A member of the Super Bowl XLVII champion Ravens, Tucker has carved out a legacy in Baltimore that will be hard for anyone to replace whenever No. 9 decides to turn in his cleats, but being the most accurate kicker in NFL history? That’s worthy of a gold jacket, even if he is just a kicker. If you change the game and are transcendent, they will find a place for you among the greats.
