3. James Harrison
The 2008 Defensive Player of the Year is one of the most feared hitters in the NFL—and one of the most penalized. The longtime Pittsburgh Steelers star has butted heads with the league for years over his style of play, which has resulted in suspensions, fines, and injuries for other players. Harrison knows how to inflict some pain on his opponents—hits on Colt McCoy, Mohamed Massaquoi, Vince Young, and Joe Flacco illustrate that point—but he’s also laid out a fan too: After a Browns supporter rushed onto the field during a game, Harrison played the role of security guard, slamming the fan to the turf. Harrison is an astonishingly athletic player for his position, too—the linebacker took an interception 100 yards for a touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals during Super Bowl XLIII.
