Lawrence Taylor

The most feared pass rusher in the history of the NFL is known by two letters: LT. Lawrence Taylor finished his career with 1,088 tackles and 132.5 sacks (not including his 9.5 sacks recorded in 1981 as the sack did not become an official NFL statistic until 1982). But bigger than just his stats, Taylor changed the way defensive football was played. He made outside linebacker a position that attacks the quarterback. Few in history have had his combination of explosiveness and power that made him a mismatch for just about everybody who tried to block him. His intensity and skill around the edge helped lead the New York Giants to two Super Bowl Championships and earned him nine All-Pro selections. In 1986, he was named league MVP. To this day, he is one of only two defensive players to ever be named league MVP, and one of only three players to not be a quarterback or running back.
