14. Terrell Davis
We’ve heard this idea numerous times when it comes to NFL stars, but it’s worth repeating when taking a look back at the career of Terrell Davis: where you’re taken in the NFL Draft doesn’t mean as much as what you do with the opportunity you’re given by just being drafted in the first place. After solidifying his spot on the Denver Broncos because of his efforts on special teams as a rookie, Davis ended up rushing for over 1,000 yards in each of his first four years in the NFL, and was named the NFL’s Offensive Player in the Year in his second year, and Most Valuable Player in his fourth year. In 1998 (the aforementioned fourth year), he ran for 2,0008 yards and 21 touchdowns; both totals were the third-highest in NFL history at the time. A year later, Davis ended up tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee, and was never quite the same player after returning. Finally, after 11 years of being eligible to be inducted, Davis was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August of 2017.
