That's who I was thinking of when I asked the "current or all-time" question.

You could also include Larry Izzo if by best you mean most success.

Gotta be Bryce Callahan this year. He's graded out as one of the best corners in the league according to PFF.

He also made 3 field goals. They finally gave him some chances to kick. Pittsburgh is a different team without Big Ben.

Tommy Kramer. QB being the most important position, Tommy being a former all-pro player who became the first NFL QB ever to pass for 450 yard twice, and one year was the highest rated QB in the league.

Current: Sendejo. This year people are taking notice that he's a major player for the dominant Viking defense.

Both Vikings!

I'd argue that, in terms of best representing Rice and what Rice is, Dr. Frank Ryan is the best professional athlete Rice has ever had.

Not many people could pull off being the last championship Browns qb as a side job while teaching at Case Western Reserve.

Irrelevant to the discussion, as he was just in the right place at the right time, but Earl Cooper leads all Rice athletes in SI covers with (I think) four.

He recounted that his father urged him to complete his graduate degree; a football career was good, but he could always count on $5,000 a year teaching.

Michael Downs was undrafted and was on the all rookie team, all pro and 2 x all conference.
Darryl Grant played 11 seasons and won 2 superbowls as a DL, played OL for Rice.
Courtney Hall was 4 x pro bowler

Lots of ways to describe 'the best'.

Personally I'd pick Boz, because we all know kicking is the hardest job. 05-stirthepot

Surprised no one has mentioned Bill Howton. When he retired he was the NFL all-time leader in receptions and yardage surpassing the great Don Hutson.
