Dorsett is a prime example that sometimes great things come in small packages. Constantly disregarded due to his small frame, at 5’11 and just over 190 lbs, Dorsett had to prove his doubters wrong. And he did just that as the starting running back for the Dallas Cowboys, who showed their faith in him by taking him with the second overall pick in the 1977 draft. Dorsett rewarded the Cowboys by rushing for over 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns in just 14 games, on his way to winning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. He broke the 1,000 yard mark in each of his first five seasons in the league, and in eight of his first nine seasons.
