    1990 - Blair Thomas
    [​IMG]
    Despite a great college career some teams thought Emmitt Smith was too slow and too small to become an effective running back at the pro level. For that reason the New York Jets, in need of a running back, opted for Penn State’s Blair Thomas with the second pick of the 1990 NFL Draft instead of going with Smith.

    Smith slipped all the way to the 17th pick and the Dallas Cowboys and at that moment a dynasty was born. In his first six seasons Emmitt would make the Pro Bowl six times, lead the league in rushing four times, and propel the Cowboys to three Super Bowl trophies. Blair Thomas meanwhile only lasted six seasons in the league before his career was over. By the time Emmitt’s career was over he would become the NFL’s all-time leading rusher.
