Emmitt Smith 18,355 1990 - 2004 Florida 17 Dallas Cowboys
Walter Payton 16,726 1975 - 1987 Jackson State 4 Chicago Bears
Barry Sanders 15,269 1989 - 1998 Oklahoma State 3 Detroit Lions

Jerome Bettis 13,662 1993 - 2005 Notre Dame 10 Los Angeles Rams
Eric Dickerson 13,259 1983 - 1993 SMU 2 Los Angeles Rams
Frank Gore 13,065 2005 - 2016 Miami (FL) 65 San Francisco 49ers
Tony Dorsett 12,739 1977 - 1988 Pittsburgh 2 Dallas Cowboys
Jim Brown 12,312 1957 - 1965 Syracuse 6 Browns


In the list, it is interesting to note none of these Hall of Famers were number one draft choices. Most of them were in the top ten and they were all drafted. Dallas seems to have a knack for choosing running backs and translating that into Super Bowl success. (Tony Dorsett won one Super Bowl with the Cowboys and Emmitt Smith won three.) Will the same happen with Ezekiel Elliott?
