Eric Dickerson is widely considered to be one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. He played for the Los Angeles Rams, Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Raiders and Atlanta Falcons.
He was selected second overall in the 1983 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams. An immediate success, he established rookie records for most rushing attempts (390), most rushing yards gained (1,808) and most touchdowns rushing (18). His efforts earned him All-Pro, Pro Bowl, Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors.
In his sophomore season, Dickerson continued his onslaught of the NFL record books. Eleven times during that season he gained more than 100 yards rushing, breaking the record of 100-yard games in a season held by O.J. Simpson.
After playing just three games for the Rams during the strike-shortened 1987 season, Dickerson was traded to the Colts. In 1988, Dickerson became the first Colt to lead the league in rushing (1,659 yards) since Alan Ameche in 1955. In 1989, he reached the 10,000 yards rushing mark in 91 games, becoming the fastest player ever to do so.
By 1989, he had set a new NFL record with seven straight seasons of more than 1,000 yards rushing. In 1990, Dickerson moved past Jim Brown into third place on the NFL career rushing list behind Walter Payton and Tony Dorsett.
On April 26, 1992, Dickerson was traded by the Colts to the Falcons and retired a year later. During his 11-year career, Dickerson gained 13,259 yards rushing, which was second all-time at the time of his retirement, and rushed for 90 touchdowns. He gained another 2,137 yards and 6 touchdowns on 281 pass receptions. He was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
Dickerson played collegiately at SMU where he was a two-time All-American. He also finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1992.
