Always a great debate in the game of football, because there are so many variables: era, supporting cast, rule changes, and even different criteria that can change who you would choose at a single position.

QB: Best all-round would go to Joe Montana. If I had just had to select an arm, it would be Marino's
RB: Best all-round would go to Walter Payton. If you were asking me who the best RUNNER is, then I go with Barry Sanders.
FB: Earl Campbell
WR: Jerry Rice
TE: Kellen Winslow
C: Dwight Stephenson
G: John Hannah
T: Anthony Munoz
DL: Bruce Smith (Jason Taylor is quickly moving into consideration)
LB: Dick Butkus
CB: Darrell Green
S: Ronnie Lott
K: Jason Elam
P: Reggie Roby
Coach: Bill Walsh
