Ohio: Charles Woodson
Picking a player from Ohio was about as close as it got. Any of the runners up could have easily earned the distinction. However, we ended up going with Charles Woodson, a two-way player in college who won the Heisman Trophy and met all expectations during his NFL career.
Woodson showed incredible longevity by playing in the NFL for 18 seasons, going to the Pro Bowl in nine of them. He won Defensive Rookie of the Year in his first season and Defensive Player of the Year more than a decade later. Woodson made the 2000s All-Decade Team and is a lock to be in the Hall of Fame one day.
Runners Up: Jack Lambert, Roger Staubach, Alan Page
