Ricky Williams: No Herschel

Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams recently announced his retirement. This past season he gained 444 yards rushing for the Ravens, giving him 10,009 for his career…26th on the all-time rushing list. Still, there’s no way he should ever be admitted to the elite Pro Football Hall of Fame. Though he led the league in rushing in 2002, he missed parts of three seasons (two due to suspensions for failed drug tests).

Even adding his 2606 career receiving yards, Williams only ranks 64th all-time in all-purpose yards. He only made one Pro Bowl, and was only named All Pro one year. In eleven seasons, the Tyler Rose scored 74 touchdowns in 147 games. His career long run was 68 yards, and a long reception of 59 yards.
