    Another favorite was Christian Okoye, the Nigerian Nightmare. Giant RB out of an NAIA school. Career was short because of injury but when he did play it was fun to watch him run over guys. Went to a US school on a track and field scholarship and ended up on the football team.

    He had never even heard of American Football until he came to the US at age 21. And despite his intimidating name he was also one of the nicest guys in the NFL.

    Ronnie Lott, hands down. 42 was my number in youth football, high school, college, it's in my user name, and is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

    Emmitt was good! One thing about it, he spent a lot of time running up field as opposed to a bunch of dancing around. I love to see a big powerful back with a lot of lower body strength and balance evade 5+ tackles and power in for a TD

    I used to love David Boston. My uncle knew his agent so we'd always talk about that guy at family gatherings all the time. That guy was a monster WR in the early 2000's.
