5. Art Powell

Art Powell was one of the first true stars of the American Football League, and although the Raiders were his third team, his star shone just as brightly in Oakland as it had done before. Art Powell had the size 6 feet 3 inches, weight at 215 pounds and speed to be a difference maker and that is exactly what he became for the silver and black, arriving the same year the young Al Davis became head coach. In four years with the Raiders he had 254 receptions for 4491 yards and 50 touchdowns. An outstanding performance by any scale. Powell was also a great team player and leader, with the kind of character and work ethic that teams coach about.
