ESPN is counting down a list of 20 current players that their expert panel believes could play in any era of football. The panels of experts is comprised of 20 Hall Of Famers and ESPN's John Clayton. The list is up to #5 and Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher makes an appearance. After the jump we'll take a look at what Mike Ditka had to say.

MIKE DITKA: I think he would have been playing outside linebacker with Dick Butkus, no question. We had a lot of great linebackers in Chicago -- Dick Butkus, Bill George, Mike Singletary. Brian Urlacher is a very athletic guy playing middle linebacker. He's got a nonstop motor. Brian Urlacher has stood the test of time. He'll go down as one of the best middle linebackers in history. He's very deserving of being on this team.
