Utah: Steve Young
It’s difficult to list a player like Merlin Olsen as second best; after all, he went to 14 consecutive Pro Bowls and was a dominant defensive player for over a decade. However, there is only one Steve Young, and he’s the best player to ever come out of Utah.
The southpaw out of BYU didn’t exactly hit the ground running in the NFL. He also had the burden of replacing Joe Montana in San Francisco. But Young was able to forge his own path and become one of the all-time greats. He ended up going to seven Pro Bowls, winning two MVP awards, and leading the 49ers to three Super Bowl wins.
