3. 1999: Woodson Named First Team All-Pro

After snagging five interceptions and going to the Pro Bowl as a Rookie, Charles Woodson had arrived on the NFL scene, and opposing quarterbacks knew better than to throw it his way. In 1999, Woodson managed only one interception – which he returned for a touchdown – and a single fumble recovery to go with 61 tackles. But despite his lack of recorded statistics, he was incredibly productive as the Raiders shutdown corner, limiting opposing wideouts such as Randy Moss and Andre Reed.

After the season, the 8-8 Raiders failed to qualify for the playoffs, but Woodson’s recognition as one of the NFL’s elite cover corners was cemented when he was selected first-team All-Pro for the first time in his career. He would be so honored again three times: once more with the Raiders in 2001, and twice with the Packers in 2009 and 2011. He would also be named second-team All-Pro three times, including the 2000 season.
