RANKED: The 40 Greatest Running Backs In NFL History

T-40. Ricky Watters

A second-round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 1991, Ricky Watters was an instant sensation in the NFL. Fresh off a successful career at Notre Dame, Watters was selected to the Pro Bowl five years in a row to start his professional career. A threat both rushing and catching passes out of the backfield, Watters tallied over 1,400 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie. The Pennsylvania native eclipsed 1,000 yards seven times — including six-straight years from 1995-2000.
