6. LB Sam Huff

He may not have some ridiculously insane career accolades wise. However, Sam Huff's legacy will forever live on in NFL history. Not only was he a very special talent at linebacker, but he was also the first 4-3 'backer the league had ever seen and he couldn't have done a better job executing this role.

After being selected 30th overall in the 1956 NFL Draft, Huff would immediately be thrust into this new 4-3 role and it didn't take much time at all to catch on. Following a rookie season in which the Giants would win the 1956 NFL Championship, Huff would rip off four straight All-Pro appearances while also making four Pro Bowls as well.

In addition to this, Huff also ranked third and fourth in MVP voting during the 1958 and 1959 seasons. The impact he had on the Giants during this time cannot be understated. To be a rookie and excel in a completely brand-new concept the sport had never seen before is insane. Let alone have an incredibly productive 13-year career.
