23. Otto Graham
Graham is a player perhaps not as familiar to today’s readers, but deserves a place on a prestigious list such as this. Graham was a three time NFL MVP (1951, 1953, and 1955), and was one of those old-school players who fought in World War II, yet brought a modern sensibility to the game with his scrambling ability, as he translated his basketball skills into a spinning, moving pocket presence that confounded defensive linemen who were used to stiffer quarterbacks.
Graham also had the versatility to mix up throwing short, tight hard passes to gain critical yardage with the longer, softer bombs intended for long gains.
