Neil Elshire was a 6'6" undrafted free agent from Oregon who made the Vikings roster in 1981.  After two years as a sparsely used backup, Elshire broke through for 9.5 quarterback sacks in 1983.  Over his six year NFL career, which was spent entirely in Minnesota, Elshire accumulated 19 sacks, four fumble recoveries, and - perhaps most impressive - a safety against the legendary 1985 Chicago Bears.
