76. Bubba Smith, football

A fierce pass rusher at 6 feet 7 and 265 pounds, he bullied Colts opponents for five years and helped Baltimore reach two Super Bowls. Often double-teamed at defensive end, Smith made first-team All-Pro in 1971 and led poet Ogden Nash to write: "When hearing tales of Bubba Smith/You wonder is he man or myth/He’s like a hoodoo, like a hex/He’s like Tyrannosaurus Rex."
