Rhode Island: Bill Osmanski
For such a small state, Rhode Island has done well for itself when it comes to sending players to the NFL. They haven’t done too much lately, but fullback Bill Osmanski definitely deserves to be recognized among the all-time greats.
Don’t let the position fool you; Osmanski played in an era when fullbacks were an important part of the offense. He led the NFL in rushing as a rookie and went to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons. Osmanski was also named to the 1940s All-Decade Team, so he definitely left his mark on the league.
