The NFL 100 All-Time Team is made up of a roster of 100 players and 10 coaches deemed "the greatest" at their respective positions. NFL Network is unveiling the roster over six-weeks. A 26-person voting panel made up of coaches, team executives, former players, and members of the media are deciding who makes it onto the NFL 100 All-Time Team.
