Note: I have a list, but I don't want to take people's thunder. For me Derrick Thomas would have to be at or near the top.

No. 1-5

I would say Bart Starr's #10, but with football that's incredibly difficult due to the roster size.

Robert Horry aka "Big Shot Bob"- he was the 11th overall pick in the 1992 NBA draft and made the UA record for career block shots (282.) Plus he was already inducted in the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

I think Joe Namath should be next. Also, Cornelius Bennett has to be up there too, right?

Ok, the list in no particular order in addition to the names already given: Lee Roy Jordan, Ozzie Newsome, Harry Gilmer, John Hannah, Don Hutson, Sylvester Croom, Johnny Musso, Kenny Stabler, Kelly Kretschman and Penney Hauschild, Dave Magaden -- and of course Bear Bryant. Down the road: Mark Ingram II, Derrick Henry, Julio Jones. My apologies to the person I'm forgetting.
