22. Chris Warren

Chris Warren was a beast at small Division III Ferrum College, but he could do the same at the NFL level?  The Seattle Seahawks thought they would take a shot with him with their Fourth Round pick in 1990.

Warren found a role as the Seahawks’ returner in his first two seasons, and he went away from that in 1992 when he became Seattle's featured Running Back.  From 1992 to 1995, he was a 1,000 Yard plus rusher, and from '93 to '95, he went to the Pro Bowl.  His best year in football was arguably in 1994, where he went for 1,545 Yards, finishing second overall in that metric.  Some could say that 1995 was better, as though he had less Rushing Yards (1,346), but he had 15 Touchdowns, six more than the year before.

The Back regressed in 1996, and that year and 1997, he finished in the 800s in Rushing Yards.  He signed with the Dallas Cowboys in 1998, thus ending his Seahawks career.  As a Seahawk, Warren rushed for 6,706 Yards, which at the time was a franchise record.  He also had 1,342 Receiving Yards and 2,613 Return Yards totaling 10,665 All-Purpose Yards for Seattle.
