Among them so far have been: Walter Jones as his #4 offensive tackle. Playing for the Sehawks from 1997-2009, Jones was First Team All-Pro 4 times, voted to 9 Pro Bowls and is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Fred Biletnikoff is his #29 wide receiver. Another Pro Football Hall of Famer, Biletnikoff played for the Raiders from 1965-1978 and was a First Team All-Pro, voted to the Pro Bowl 4 times, led the NFL in receptions in 1971, finished his career with 589 receptions, nearly 9,000 receiving yards, 76 touchdowns and was the Super Bowl XI MVP. Although Anquan Boldin did not make his all-time wide receiver list, he did make Brandt's recent short list of players who would like make great NFL head coaches. Boldin is the only WR on the list. Derrick Brooks is Gil's #6 linebacker of all time. Yet another Pro Football Hall of Famer, playing for the Buccaneers from 1995-2006, Brooks was a First Team All-Pro 5 times, voted to 11 Pro Bowls and was a Super Bowl champion. The latest list Brandt has released featured the best safeties of all time. Coming in at #36 on that list is former Packers great from 1990-2001, LeRoy Butler. Butler was a First Team All-Pro 4 times, voted to 4 Pro Bowls and has a Super Bowl ring as well. Finally, the highest rated player on any of Brandt's lists was Deion Sanders, coming in as his #1 cornerback of all time. Playing for 5 different teams over a career spanning from 1989-2005, Sanders was a First Team All-Pro 6 times, voted to 8 Pro Bowls, a two-time Super Bowl champion, one of the greatest punt returners of all time and enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
