Running back for the San Diego Chargers
. Drafted out of Texas Christian University. Used his unbelievable vision and tremendous agility to set the NCAA
record with 406 rushing yards in a single game his junior year, finish with 1,850 and 18 touchdowns that season and continue with 2,158 yards and 22 touchdowns his senior season. Had 5,263 rushing yards in his college career, sixth in D-1 history. Drafted by the Atlanta Falcons
with the fifth pick, but immediately traded for first overall pick Michael Vick
in the 2001 NFL
draft. Ran for 1,200 yards his first five seasons. Became the first player to catch 100 passes and rush for 1,000 yards in the same year (2003), holds the record for consecutive games with a TD, tied the record for most consecutive games with any non-passing TD (18), on October 16, 2005, became the 7th player ever to rush, catch and pass a TD, and became the fastest ever to 100 TD (89 games). Set a new NFL record in 2006 with 19 touchdowns in six games, and has broken his career record with 22 TD in 2006 in just ten games. Has five career passing TD on nine attempts. Often considered underrated because of a lack of exposure on the West Coast.
LaDainian Tomlinson is a beast.
