History: Doug Atkins continued his College Football Hall of Fame and Championship winning career ways he had with the Tennessee Volunteers straight into the pros as he won a title with Cleveland in 1954, and then with the Chicago Bears in 1963 with whom he played 11 years. At 6'8", 257 lbs (huge for that era), he was one of the most feared defensive lineman in NFL history and was an 8x-Pro Bowler and a member of the 1960s All-Decade Team. Atkins was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1982.
