The 20 Greatest Running Backs in NFL History

6. Eric Dickerson

Years Played: 1983-1993
All Time Stats: 13,259 Rushing Yards, 90 Rushing TDs, 4.4 Yards Per Carry
Accolades: Record for Rushing Yards in a Season (2,105), 6x Pro Bowler, 5x All-Pro

A true testament to how dominant he was, Dickerson's magical single season rushing record still stands today after 31 years. He set it in his second season with the Rams and it has stood as the seemingly insurmountable bar for rushing yards for all of the greats that have come after him. Dickerson was so good he was getting paid in college before Reggie Bush was even thought of and rocked one of the meanest athlete accessory combo's of a jheri curl and Kareem goggles like it was nothing. Not many will ever have the talent and skill Dickerson possessed, but even less will have that swag.
