Former NFL Safety John Lynch was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of Standford in the third round of the 1993 NFL Draft.
Although he could probably get into the Hall Of Fame solely for his performances while playing with the Buccaneers, Lynch contributed greatly to the Denver Broncos defense during his four-year stint with the team when he became a fan-favorite in Denver.
Joining up with Champ Bailey in the Broncos secondary, Lynch and Bailey formed one of the Broncos best secondary tandems since Steve Atwater and Dennis Smith were with the club.
Named the 10th most feared tackler of all time by NFL Films, Lynch was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, earned a Super Bowl ring with the Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII, was a two-time First team All Pro and two-time second team All Pro selection.
Through his 16-year career, Lynch recorded well over 490 tackles (tackling statistics were not recorded until the year 2000 -- seven years after Lynch entered the League), 13 sacks, 36 passes defended, 26 interceptions, 1o forced fumbles and dozens of bone-crushing hits.
He is now a color commentator with Fox Sports.
Lynch will be Hall Of Fame eligible in 2013.
