Barry SandersBarry Sanders

He left the game too soon but that does not mean he did not leave a great mark. Everybody knew Barry Sanders was great when he was in college and won the 1988 Heisman Trophy, but he carried the success into the NFL. Sanders played only 10 seasons in the NFL but at the time of his retirement he was second in history with 15,269 rushing yards and was just the third player ever at the time to rush for 2,000 yards, going for 2,053 yards and averaging 6.1 yards per carry in 1997. He scored 99 rushing touchdowns and caught 10 more in his career and went to the Pro Bowl ever year and was a six-time first team All-Pro and four-time second team All-Pro. He was the league MVP in 1991, a two-time offensive player of the year and has 14-straight 100-yard games, a record that still stands today. He was so elusive, and shifty and left defenders in the dust as he ran past them and changed direction in the blink of an eye.
