Jim Otto played his entire professional football career as a member of the Oakland Raiders. Following graduation from Miami, he did not receive much interest from many NFL teams. Otto joined the AFL where he became a nine time All-Star and a ten time All-AFL player. In the last season prior to the NFL-AFL merger, Otto helped lead the Oakland Raiders to the AFL championship.
Otto’s successes carried on into the NFL as he was named to three All-Pro teams and played in three consecutive Pro Bowls. He was named to the AFL All-Time Team, ranked as the 63 greatest NFL player of all time by the NFL Network, and in his first year of eligibility, he was named to the NFL Hall of Fame.
