28. Derrick Brooks, 1995, Buccaneers
This was one of the most difficult choices of this fictitious draft. It was virtually a tossup between Brooks and cornerback Darrell Green. In the end, Green had one more Super Bowl ring but Brooks had a better overall resume.
Brooks spent all 14 seasons of his career playing with the Bucs, becoming the heart and soul of one of the best defensive teams of that era. He was a 9-time All-Pro and an 11-time Pro Bowler, even making it in his 14th and final season in the league. Green was nearly as impressive, as both are Hall of Famers and members of an All-Decade Team, but Brooks was just a little better.
