Otto Graham is one of three players in the Top 20 who played in the AAFC.

Players who were active during the 2000 season outnumbered members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame among the Top 20 career leaders in four main statistical categories. Each week during the NFL season, the Hall of Fame updates the Top Twenty career leaders in passing, receiving, rushing and scoring. The Top Twenty rankings, an immensely popular display at the museum in Canton, are also updated weekly on the Hall of Fame’s web site. The 2000 NFL regular season marked the fifth straight year that the weekly updates were posted each Monday and Tuesday on the Internet.

The Hall of Fame’s Top Twenty rankings differ slightly from other similar lists in that statistics from the All-America Football Conference (1946-1949) are included. However, there are only three players who played in the AAFC who currently hold a Top Twenty ranking in any of the four main categories - Otto Graham of the Cleveland Browns (passing), Joe "The Jet" Perry (rushing) and Lou "The Toe" Groza (scoring).
