To no surprise, Bills legend Bruce Smith was named to the NFL 100 All-Time Team on Friday when the defensive linemen were revealed.
Smith, the NFL leader in sacks with 200, was among seven defensive ends selected, joining Doug Atkins, Bill Hewitt, Deacon Jones, Gino Marchetti, Lee Roy Selmon and Reggie White. Marchetti and Jones were the lone unanimous selections.
