Falcons trivia: Who is the Atlanta draft pick with the most 1st team All-Pro selections?

If you guessed it was a franchise great, you’re right.

Recently, we put forth a trivia question asking about the Falcons draft picks who piled up more sacks than any other players in team history. That question was a bit tricky because while John Abraham is the team’s all-time sack leader, he was not an Atlanta draft pick. Patrick Kerney was the leader in the modern era with 82.5 sacks—not all of them with the Falcons, obviously—while the great Claude Humphrey’s 120+ unofficial sacks puts him truly atop the leaderboard.

Is there something similar going on with today’s question? Let’s start with the question itself, which concerns which Falcons draft pick has the most first team All-Pro selections. Start with the sad fact that only 16 Falcons have ever earned that distinction and the list winnows itself down quite nicely. The player in question has double the designations the next closest player does, but I can tell you that he’s a true Falcons great, no qualifications necessary.

The rest is up to you. Who is this guy?
