Roman Phifer should be on them.
He had a fine career, ended with three Super Bowl rings, but he never was named to an All-Pro team or even an All-Conference team. He was a Pro Bowl alternate in 1995 and possibly with the Patriots, but the Pats usually didn't release the names of their alternates.
Phifer was a coverage linebacker who was not asked to blitz much
Those seasons he was usually on the outside, playing essentially the rush end position on the right side,
Here are his career statistics.
