23. Larry Brown
> Rings: 4

Larry Brown was initially drafted as a tackle, but the Steelers moved him to tight end. He started at tight end during Pittsburgh’s first two Super Bowl runs, though he didn’t catch a lot of passes at that position. The team moved him to right tackle, where he started for the next eight seasons, winning two more titles and his only Pro Bowl spot in 1982.

Joe Montana led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowls, winning Super Bowl MVP in three of them. “Joe Cool” was the perfect quarterback to run head coach Bill Walsh’s West Coast offense. Montana and the Niners picked defenses apart during the 1980s, making the playoffs nine of the 10 years in which Montana was the starting QB.

He was named to the All-Pro team for six straight years, starting in 1974 until 1979 — the years in which the 1970s Steelers won their first and last Super Bowls, though he missed the final Super Bowl due to injury.
