Jason Witten: Another future Hall-of-Famer, Witten was a tight-end that quickly gained the respect of Cowboys nation for his toughness, grit, and playmaking ability. Drafted in the third round with the 5th pick, Witten started out slow for the Cowboys, but in 2007 when paired with best-friend and quarterback Tony Romo, Witten broke out for one his best years. He had 96 receptions and one memorable and bloody catch and run against the Eagles.  Witten now holds the most receptions for any Cowboy in franchise history. Witten has not only won over fans for his play, but his off-the field image as a good guy. It’s hard to imagine that the Cowboys got him in the third round; this has to be one of the biggest bargains the team has had in their drafts. Book a ticket to Canton for this man when his playing days are over and schedule the Ring of Honor ceremony, there is no question that Witten is one of the all-time greats in Cowboys lore.
