Kent Hull - Center
Kent Hull was never drafted into the NFL, instead being drafted in the seventh round of the USFL in 1983. He would play for the New Jersey Generals until the league folded. He earned All-USFL honors in 1985. He would sign with the Buffalo Bills on the very same day as the great Jim Kelly, which also coincided with the hiring of legendary Marv Levy.
Hull played with the Bills beginning in 1986 and would retire a Bill after the 1996 season. He played 170 games with the Bills, starting all but one of those games. He was voted to four All-Pro teams, two first-team and two second-team. He was also voted to three Pro Bowl teams.

Hull was arguably the most important part of the line during those Bills' Super Bowl teams, anchoring possibly the greatest line in Buffalo Bills’ history. Like DeLamielleure, Hull was voted to the Buffalo Bills’ 50th Anniversary team; however, has not been voted to the NFL Hall of Fame.
Hull played his college ball with the Mississippi State Bulldogs from 1979 – 1982, earning All-SEC honors during that time. Kent Hull passed away in 2011 at the age of 50.
