NFL.com creating list of 75 most valuable NFL Draft picks of all time

This year is the 75th NFL Draft.  In conjunction with this anniversary, the NFL is looking to determine the 75 most valuable draft picks of all time.  They've compiled a list of 10 players from every team.  We begin the process of determining the Most Valuable Draft Pick by choosing between pairs of players randomly generated from the list of 320 greats.  After selecting winners of 30 random matchups, fans will begin to build their own Top 10 list.  Fans may continue to vote in order to make changes to their personal Top 10 list as well as the All-Time Top 10 announced at the Draft. Users then may share their lists and their head-to-head winners on Facebook.  Voting begins today at the NFL Draft MVPs section of nfl.com.

The 49ers nominees are:

Charles Haley
Jimmy Johnson
Ronnie Lott
Hugh McElhenny
Joe Montana
Leo Nomellini
Terrell Owens
Jerry Rice
Gene A. Washington
Dave Wilcox

Anybody else you think should have been included in this list?

After the jump I've posted the list of players for every team (I have a feeling Tom Brady ends up fairly high in the rankings)...
