Bronko Nagurski was the first one I thought of before even opening the thread, that's an all-timer.

Sterling Sharpe is a smooth name that I don't think has been mentioned yet

I can’t believe you left out Tuffy Leemans who is in the Giant’s Ring of Honor. You must be younger than I am. I attended the Giants-Brooklyn Dodger game on December 7, 1941 which was “Tuffy Leemans Day” (besides the start of WWII). Thus I’m sure I am older than you and almost everybody on this site.
carpoon beat me to it, but

Crazy Legs Hirsch (Elroy to his mother) has to be the best.

I thought Colt McCoy was a perfect name for a Texas QB

Also Beasley Reece
Not necessarily a great football name but

I used to get a kick out of Deron Cherry wearing a red helmet that looked like a giant cherry. Likely just me.
Game over.
