21. Emmitt Smith

Most Dominant Year: 1995

This Cowboys Hall of Famer is the second-fastest running back from the 16-bit era (we'll let you try to guess the first one). In reality, Smith was a straight-ahead runner who took advantage of one of football's finest offensive lines to roar into NFL history books. But video games were much simpler in the 90s, and Madden made Smith the class of its tailbacks. He was noticeably faster than every other runner in Madden 94, a big reason why the Cowboys were the most exciting team in that game.
