Why we chose him: At 6'4'', 210 pounds, he's one of the most feared men in the world's game. Take it from a pro: "I've played against a lot of massive defenders, and no one has Oguchi's strength. His shoulders and chest are so big that people confuse him with an NFL player. He can move anyone in the game with one arm, including the best strikers in the world. Guys absolutely fear him." --Charlie Davies, Forward, U.S. Soccer
