Lott Made Waves With Hard-Hitting Style

To commemorate USA TODAY's 25th anniversary, a panel of USA TODAY's NFL reporters and editors has produced an anthology of the 25 best NFL players of the past 25 years. Working down from No. 25, they are unveiling one player each weekday until training camp season arrives:

• No. 8 Ronnie Lott

Ronnie Lott, the defensive leader of the 49ers when the team won four Super Bowl titles during the 1980s, earns the eighth spot on USA TODAY's list as one of the most ferocious defenders ever to play in the NFL. With as much intelligence as physical talent, Lott (who had five seasons with more than 100 tackles) seemed to have a knack for always being around the ball. Named to 10 Pro Bowls and eight All-Pro squads, he won the honors at three positions — cornerback, free safety and strong safety.

Lott earned his reputation with the passion he poured into the game and his ferocious tackling. The epitome of "old school," Lott once had a portion of his left pinky amputated in order to play during a 49ers playoff drive.
