Here are the best NFL players from Alaska! While not an extensive list, the top Alaskan NFL players do have some Super Bowl rings to their names.

All but one of these NFL players from Alaska play in the trenches, whether it’s the defensive or offensive line. Steve Smith (not that Steve Smith) is the only skill-position player on the list. While Alaskan NFL players haven’t been prevalent throughout the league’s history, they have a quality-over-quantity vibe to them. Plus, you got to love a list where one of the entries (Mark Schlereth) has the nickname “Stink.” 

So vote for the best NFL players from Alaska, and add anyone you feel is missing from the list.
