The Washington Redskins drafted Brian Mitchell in the 5th Round of the 1990 Draft, where the Running Back found his true calling as a Return Specialist. Mitchell played the entire 1990s with Washington, where he would win a Super Bowl (XXVI), and with his vast amount of returns (both kick and punt), he was a four-time league leader in All-Purpose Yards (1994, 1995, 1996 & 1998). While he was only a Pro Bowl Selection once, there was no doubt that he was the most dependable Special Teams player of the decade.
At the turn of the century, Mitchell would play four more seasons, three with Philadelphia and one with the New York Giants, where he continued his run as a top returner.
As of this writing, Mitchell is the all-time leader in Return Yards in 19,013 Yards and with his additional 1,967 Rushing Yards and 2,336 Receiving Yards gave him a total of 23,330 All-Purpose Yards, second to only Jerry Rice. When you have that type of yardage, surely the Pro Football Hall of Fame has to notice.
