List Rules Only professional American football players of Hispanic descent/blood lineage

A list of the best Hispanic football players. Hispanic football players, though some understated, have been an important part of the NFL's fabric. Beginning with players during the NFL's formative years like Pro Football Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren (an integral part of the Philadelphia Eagles championship team in 1948), Hispanic footballers have always found a place in the NFL. Some of the biggest, baddest and best football players have been Hispanics. There have been Pro Bowlers, All-Pros, Super Bowl Champions, and yes, Hall of Famers who are of Hispanic descent. Since the merger in 1970, there have been more Hispanic players who have soared to great heights in the NFL. While not every Hispanic football player is listed on here, the best ones are. You may recognize a good number of these players, as they're pretty big names who have had a lot of success over the years, hence why they are on the list of the Best Hispanic football players.

When you think of excellence at both the left tackle and tight end positions, two of the best to ever play those positions are Hispanics. Anthony Munoz and Tony Gonzalez are indisputably two of the greatest players of all time at their respective positions. Gonzalez is still terrorizing NFL defense nearly two full decades into his career, showing no signs of slowing down. Recent stars include the perpetually discussed Tony Romo, the salsa dancing Victor Cruz and running back Arian Foster.

This is the list of the best Hispanic football players. If you notice someone is not on this list, feel free to add him. Vote or re-rank the list according to who you think should be considered among the best Hispanic football players of all time.
