Steve Hutchinson, Michigan

If you're going to take a guard this early, he better be good. Good thing Hutch is the greatest guard of his generation. After playing only 4 games in 2002, Hutchinson started his incredible streak of 5 seasons, 5 Pro Bowls, 5 All-Pro nods. His pull blocking--the feet of a fullback, the impact potential of an RKV--helped turn Shaun Alexander into an unstoppable force in 2005. When Tim Ruskell saved a buck by Transition Tagging him, the Vikings snapped him up. Now, in just his second season, Adrian Peterson is already considered the greatest running back in the NFL. For a guard to have an such obvious impact on two separate teams is rare, but then so is Steven Hutchinson's talent, ferocity, and play.

Oh, and in my universe, we franchise Hutch--until he dies.
