The Best Football Players by Number, From 00 to 99 (Graphic)

Back in June, we posted a graphic listing the best basketball players by jersey number, from 00 all the way to 99.  Now, with the 2015 NFL season set to kick off in less than 24 hours, it’s time to unveil the football version of Mitchell & Ness‘ “Best Players by Number.”

While some numbers were a piece of cake, like Peyton Manning at #18 and Joe Montana at #16, others were much more difficult—good luck choosing between LaDainian Tomlinson and Deion Sanders at #21.

Find out which No. 21 got the nod this time around by checking out the graphic below.  And for a complete number-by-number analysis from Mitchell & Ness, you can check out their website here.
