3. Devin Hester

Devin Hester was drafted by the Bears in 2006. He has the record for most special teams touchdowns in NFL history with 19.

Hester is the only rookie in Super Bowl history to return a kick return for a touchdown on the first play of the game. Hester helped the Bears to a 13-3 record during his rookie season with five special teams touchdowns.

Early in his career, he was used at a cornerback. A few years later, he would become a wide receiver for the Bears.

During his career as a wide receiver, Hester had 3,311 yards and 16 touchdowns in the air. He’d play eight seasons with the Bears before moving on to Atlanta, Baltimore, and Seattle.

Just like many others on this list, Hester never got the championship he desired for his whole career. Still, the second he left Chicago, it was an odd feeling. Losing the best special team’s player of all time hurt the Bears return game for years to come. They’ve still not fully recovered from that loss.

Many people have argued this topic but I believe Hester will be in the Hall of Fame someday. Just like Forte, he might not be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but he will end up in there. He changed the game in so many ways. There might never be another one like him.
