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.

Great running back that plays for the San Diego Chargers
LaDainian Tomlinson is the best RB I have ever seen.

A running back who, when all is said and done, will hold every significant running back record in the NFL (barring injury). Called LT for short (not to be confused with Lawrence Taylor).
By retirement, LT will be in the same light, possibly overshadowing: Walter Payton, Barry Sanders, Gale Sayers, Jim Brown, & O.J. Simpson (the good OJ; not the wife-killing OJ).

LaDainian Tomlinson is the best running back in the game right now by far.
