Affectionately known as "Mr. Cowboy," Bob Lilly was the first player elected into the Dallas Cowboys "Ring of Honor".
As a first-round draft pick in 1961 - and the Cowboys first ever draft pick - Lilly was named All-Pro seven times and played in eleven Pro Bowl games.
Lilly began his career as a defensive end, but midway through his third season, Cowboys coach Tom Landry moved him to defensive tackle. As a tackle, Lilly was a first-team All-NFL choice every year from 1964 through 1969, then again in 1971 & 1972. The Cowboys won the 1972 Super Bowl against Miami and his sack of quarterback Bob Griese is one of the most memorable plays in Super Bowl history.
Lilly's greatest assets were his furious pass-rushing and his ability to make plays with his agility and instincts. These skills helped him score four defensive touchdowns during his career.
Lilly was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980. He was also named by The Sporting News to the All-Century NFL Team and called "the greatest defensive tackle in NFL history".
In 1999, he was ranked number 10 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, the highest-ranking defensive lineman and the highest-ranking Cowboy.
