17. Drew Brees
Most Dominant Year: 2011
The former second-round pick of the Chargers was good in San Diego, but he really came into his own when he joined the Saints and led them to the Super Bowl title in 2009. Madden had started letting fans select their coverboys by then, and naturally, Brees, the most iconic player from the Super Bowl champ, won the honor. As a passer, he's tremendously accurate, and he's a solid scrambler, too.
