Eric Metcalf was selected as the 13th overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. He played in the NFL for 13 seasons, with stints at 7 different teams including the Browns, Falcons, Chargers, Cardinals, Panthers, Redskins, and Packers.

Metcalf was primarily utilized as a return specialist and running back. His versatility and speed made him a significant threat in special teams. Over his career, he recorded almost 8,000 rushing and receiving yards, but his most remarkable achievements came as a return specialist, where he scored 12 return touchdowns.

He was named to three Pro Bowls and earned two 1st Team All-Pro selections. His ability to change games with his special teams play made him one of the most exciting players to watch during his career.

James Brooks

James Brooks had an impressive NFL career as a running back, highlighted by his time with the Cincinnati Bengals from 1984 to 1991. Selected 24th overall in the 1981 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers, Brooks was eventually traded to Cincinnati where he truly shined.

He was known for his dual-threat ability as both a runner and receiver. In his career, Brooks recorded 7962 rushing yards and 49 rushing touchdowns, along with 3621 receiving yards and 30 receiving touchdowns.

Brooks was a 4-time Pro Bowl selection and helped lead the Bengals to Super Bowl XXIII, though they, unfortunately, lost to the San Francisco 49ers.

Tyrod Taylor

Tyrod Taylor was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 6th round of the 2011 NFL Draft and served as a backup to Joe Flacco for four seasons, earning a Super Bowl ring in Super Bowl XLVII.

Taylor got his chance to start when he signed with the Buffalo Bills in 2015. His dual-threat ability as a passer and runner was key in leading the Bills to their first playoff appearance in 17 seasons in 2017.

However, his time as a starter in Buffalo lasted for only three seasons and he has since gone on to backup roles with the Browns, Chargers, Texans and Giants.
