Hypothetical: your ultimate 11-man football team, Iron Man

Here’s a guess for you:

If you had to pick 11 players from any era in NFL history to play an 11-game season in which all 11 players started at a different offensive and defensive position each week, who would the 11 guys be? of your team?

My team largely consists of bigger running backs with some passing ability.

It seems to me that having some passing ability as well as a demonstrable ability to block, tackle, run and catch the ball are the keys to picking such a team.

My team is admittedly light on defenders

Tell me about your hypothetical team in the comments.
