Ranking The 20 Greatest NFL Players of All-Time

19. Drew Brees

The diminutive signal-caller out of Purdue has developed into an all-time great.  Brees doesn’t have ideal height. However, he’s got huge hands, terrific precision, and a drive to succeed in the face of adversity. For over a decade, Brees has been lighting up the scoreboard in New Orleans. He can make throws to all parts of the field, and most certainly isn’t shy about stepping up when needed most. The 12-time Pro Bowler led New Orleans to a Super Bowl victory over the Indianapolis Colts in 2010. Brees currently ranks as the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards. Assuming he plays next season, Brees (520) likely will pass Peyton Manning (539) as the NFL’s all-time career leader in passing touchdowns.
