Who Is The Best NFL Player Of All Time From Illinois?
Illinois has been home to many great football players through the years, but who's the best of all time?
My friends and I are huge football fans. We like to argue, I mean discuss different topics about the game. Here's one we've covered several times. Surprising, we all generally agree with the answer. It has to be Dick Butkus.
A story was recently done on msn.com, "Best NFL Players Of All Time From Every State."
What about Illinois? They agree with us. Their choice is Dick Butkus.
The runner-up for our state is Otto Graham.
There are other Chicago Bears that have made a huge impact in football around the United States.
Top players from other states.

Runner-up for best player in each state.

- Greg Landry (quarterback) - New Hampshire
- Julius Peppers (defensive end) - North Carolina
