From the day Kent Hull joined the Bills, he was a prominent piece of their front-five. A starter from Day 1, the Mississippi State product quickly earned his horns as an important part of Buffalo’s success during the early 1990s.

Most folks remember all the stars the Bills had during this time. From Jim Kelly to Thurman Thomas, it’s easy to get lost in all the playmakers while forgetting about the hog mollies. Well, if you know anything about Hull, then you know he was just as deserving of respect and recognition for his role in the franchise’s success.

The starter for four-straight Super Bowl appearances, Hull was a monster in the running game and anchor of the Buffalo offensive line. Look no further than the Bills’ 1995 AFC Wild Card game against the Miami Dolphins for evidence of his impact, when he helped pave the way to 334 total yards for the Buffalo ground game.

When his career was over, Hull had earned three Pro Bowl nods and four All-Pro selections. Sounds like more than enough to merit the No. 12 spot on this list.
