James Laurinaitis has only been in the league for three seasons, but he's a real throwback NFL player and one of the league's emerging stars. The linebacker has topped 100 tackles in all three of his seasons, while also showing a knack for playing in coverage. He's yet to make a Pro Bowl team, but that honor will surely come sooner than later, given how Laurinaitis plays with a fearless, all-out attitude.
