In addition to No. 7, Tuesday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN will consider the best players to ever wear No. 73.

To make it work, you need to vote on the best to wear No. 73.

We’ve narrowed it down for you, as we always do.  Pick the best three.

And then tune in at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, especially if the soccer game has become a two-nil blowout by then.

    I don’t see anywhere to vote, but I guess I’ll write in Ron Yary.

    Leo Nomellini the 49ers’ first-ever NFL draft choice.

    Nomellini played in every 49ers game for 14 seasons, 174 regular-season and 266 pro games in all. During his career he played both defensive and offensive tackle, winning all pro honors at both positions. He was selected to the All-NFL team six times, two years on offense, four years on defense. Nomellini was named to the NFL’s all-time team as a defensive tackle.

    He also was a professional wrestler in the off season.

    John Hannah…not even close.

  17. RexCanCoach says: Jul 1, 2014 12:25 PM

    Gotta give it to Larry Allen but its too bad Joe Klecko also wore #73 he was all-pro at 3 different positions.

  18. b1rdbath says: Jul 1, 2014 12:56 PM

    I wore #73

  19. hawdog says: Jul 1, 2014 12:58 PM

    Easiest one yet. John Hannah was the best offensive lineman ever. Larry Allen was a beast but not on Hannah’s level. Whoever answered Joe Thomas or Klecko should have their football watching privileges taken away until they are able to educate themselves

  20. r8dernation says: Jul 1, 2014 1:00 PM

    NY Sack Exchange. ‘Nuff said.

  21. swede700 says: Jul 1, 2014 1:15 PM

    Joe Thomas shouldn’t be higher than 6th in this poll, let alone higher than Yary. The top 3 are Hannah, Yary, and Allen. No one else should be even close.

  22. bigbenh8tr says: Jul 1, 2014 1:16 PM

    Larry Allen without question. There will never be an offensive lineman like him in the NFL again. People forget he had some good wheels before his age caught up with him.
    11x Pro Bowler
    7x All Pro
    Along with Daryl Johnston, he allowed Emmitt Smith to break the rushing record, and he was in Dallas from 94 until the record was broken. Its just a shame the man only got 1 ring thanks to Jerry Jones firing Jimmy Johnson

    Coming from a non-Patriot fan, people that didn’t vote for John Hannah just don’t know who John Hannah was.

  24. bigdaddy44 says: Jul 1, 2014 2:28 PM

    John Hannah, no one else comes close.

  25. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Jul 1, 2014 2:31 PM

    If you didn’t vote Larry Allen, then you just told the world you know nothing about football.

  26. blowtorch1964 says: Jul 1, 2014 4:34 PM

    Joe Klecko only 11 % of the votes? Wow.

  27. 1bigtex says: Jul 1, 2014 4:36 PM

    John Hannah was a nine time Pro Bowler and an All Pro LG. Larry Allen was an eleven time Pro Bowler and an All Pro at LG, RG, and LT.

  28. slim1337 says: Jul 1, 2014 6:26 PM

    Allen was great, But Hannah was an absolute beast.

  29. lemmetalkwouldya says: Jul 1, 2014 6:47 PM

    If anyone answers anything other than John Hannah, they aren’t true fans of football and should never be allowed to watch another game, ever again.

    Perhaps the greatest offensive lineman the world has ever seen, and ever will.

    Larry Allen can’t carry Hannah’s Gatorade cup.

  30. bandoy767 says: Jul 1, 2014 9:37 PM

    There’s a big generation gap for questions like this. As and 80’s kid theres only 2 players on this list that I recognize. (Larry Allen, Joe Thomas) which could be the reason Allen’s getting most of the votes.

  31. politicallyincorrect says: Jul 1, 2014 10:15 PM

    no debate on this one… Hannah

  32. durskichiro says: Jul 2, 2014 12:20 PM

    This isn’t quite as bad as when the fan vote had Dorsett ahead of Sammy Baugh, but it is still a glaring misjudgment. Hannah simply the best guard ever and best OL player next to only Munoz and Parker.

  33. durskichiro says: Jul 2, 2014 5:30 PM

    IMO my top 73s all time:
    1 Hannah
    2 Allen
    3 Nomellini
    4 Joe Thomas
    5 Weinmeister
    6 Yary
    7 Klecko

  34. opinionofmatter says: Jul 2, 2014 8:19 PM

    Larry Allen was incredible, extremely athletic and he just annihilated people. Joe Thomas is the best in pass pro but his run blocking is little better than average. His longevity and being the best at his position for a long time gets him to the HOF but he doesn’t threaten the top of this list (and i’m a Browns fan).

  35. durskichiro says: Jul 2, 2014 9:47 PM

    Joe Thomas and JJ Watt make Greater Milwaukee proud!
