    How many players (all teams) picked in the first round in the past four years have been named All Pro?

    I am going to take a guess. That is 128 players who were picked in the first round. I am going to guess less than 10% (13 players).

    Good point about the distinction between LT and RT.

He went to New Englad at this end of his career and still led the league in rushing. However besides in Cincy, most people on the NFL will barely remember Dillon. His status as a great player suffered because of being on horrible Bengal teams. Much like it killed Willie Anderson's status.

    If Munoz played the same years Anderson did. Munoz may not have been the best ever or shoot may not have even made the hall of fame. The Bengals being so bad those years, killed the status of how great a couple players were like Dillon and Anderson.
    Munoz maybe not make the HOF, come on, he was so good it wouldn't have mattered when he played, he was going to be noticed, just that good!!
