5. Tony Dorsett, RB, Pittsburgh(1973-76)
Tony Dorsett is a little guy who ran fast and made a lot of defenders miss him. He played at Pitt when the Panthers were relevant on the national scene. He led Pitt to the 1976 national championship while earning the Heisman Trophy. He made first-team All-American three times (1973, 1975 and 1976), and he finished his career with 6,082 rushing yards, a record that would stand until Texas’ Ricky Williams broke it in 1998. Dorsett was eventually the No. 2 overall pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 1977, who he went on to have a Hall of Fame career with.
