This was both the most simple and the most difficult list to make. Martin #32 and Kelce #41 are the only active members on this list. Munoz probably really should be #1, but he was generally on mediocre teams, which kind of weigh him down a bit since playoff success awards a few points, although this is based almost exclusively on First Team All-Pro selections.

Joe Thomas criminally underrated

It’s a shame he was on the Browns. I think Bruce Matthews is Gus closest approximation. Dominant on a bad team. Matthews just played twice as long as Thomas, and at the same level throughout. Munoz at least went to two SBs despite being on generally a bad team.

I applaud his loyalty to the team though. It gets rarer and rarer as the years go on.

That's true. When I was a kid, players often played for one team their entire career, regardless how much they excelled or degraded. It wasn't until the late 1990s that players were frequently switching teams. A team might keep 75% of their starting roster for like a decade someimes.
