1. Billy Truax Marker
Inscription.
A consummate tight end, but LSU's offense in his era was geared towards the run and, consequently, his talents as a pass receiver were never exploited. It was mostly his superb blocking that earned him All-American status in 1963. He played 10 seasons in the NFL for the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys, winning a Super Bowl ring with the Cowboys in 1971.
