Terrell Davis is synonymous with “greatest draft steal of all-time” and when you look at his body of work during his eight year stint, its easy to see why he has been given that honor.
The 1995 sixth-round pick out of the University of Georgia wasn’t expected to play a key role out of the backfield for the Denver Broncos under head coach Mike Shanahan. However, after dazzling Shanahan and the rest of his staff during the dog days of training camp, he got the nod to be the starting tailback out of the gate.
Doesn’t this sound like a similar story for Redskins fans? (Hint, hint: Think Alfred Morris)
Davis churned out over 1,000 yards in his debut, however, his reign of dominance didn’t truly kick into gear until his second season in 1996.
Recently, Shanahan mentioned Morris in the same breath as Davis stating that “[Morris] really is [a one-of-a-kind]. He’s made of the right stuff.The closest guy is Terrell Davis; [he’s] a lot like Alfred.”
Seeing as the two will forever be linked, see how Davis did during his sophomore campaign and how it could bode well for Morris in 2013.

With the first round (which is really the second round) of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament set to tip off in less than an hour, you may find yourself in need of last-minute bracket advice from a man who knows the game.
Enter former Redskins running back Ladell Betts.
Betts played for the Redskins from 2002-09, primarily backing up Clinton Portis during his lengthy career in Washington. His best season came in 2006 when he rushed for career highs in carries (245), yards (1,154) and touchdowns (four).
Since his career ended with the New Orleans Saints in 2010, he has partnered with former teammate Eddie Mason to instruct fitness in the greater-D.C. region. Betts’s brainchild is the ‘MASE Kids Fit4Life‘ program, which is intended to provide youth with a well-rounded developmental program intended to instill lifelong values in kids.
When Betts isn’t enriching the lives of the next generation, apparently he watches basketball, because he has nine-plus minutes of advice for your 2013 NCAA Bracket (via the fine folks at PickFactor): Read more »
