56. Ed Reed
Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2004 Defensive POY, 8x Pro Bowler, 5x All-Pro First Team
The ball-hawking safety from the Ravens was elite throughout the Complex Decade and makes the list for all the fans of defensive football out there. Rarely do you see a defensive back with hands that are better than some receivers, but Reed has had just that. He reads QBs like Dr. Seuss and nabs picks with ease. In '04 he grabbed DPOY honors with nine INTs and two defensive touchdowns including a ridiculous 106-yard pick 6, then outdid himself in '08 with another nine picks and three defensive touchdowns including an even crazier 107-yard pick 6. We know all you Madden players know Reed is not one to mess with cause he's probably won or lost a game for you too. Ed and Ray Ray have been strapping up for years and the only thing that could get in their way now is father time.
