There are probably atleast 50 valid answers but my answer is we haven't seen him or her yet.

No one can definitively answer that question. It would simply be subjective. NFL football is position sport. How can you compare a quarterback to a middle linebacker? An offensive center to a strong safety? The truth is you can't. You can compare by positions; who is the best fullback, the best tight end, etc. but even that is limited by the era in which they played, the total number of games, the strength of the competition and so on. I can tell you who I think is the best athlete to ever play in the NFL, but that is merely a subjective opinion. (Jerry Rice, San Francisco 49ers) Others will surely disagree.
