Running back Alfred Morris squashed the perception that a sixth round pick can’t make an instant impact last year after he rushed for a franchise record 1,613 yards.
Few outside of his alma mater knew of his talents and those who didn’t quickly disregarded him as a blocking fullback—seriously.
Just imagine what would have happened to No. 46 if he hadn’t come to our Nation’s Capital—actually don’t. We prefer Morris in Burgundy and Gold.
As Morris started belting homers in the back of the end zone at a record pace, he smashed another “problem” with relative ease.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III is a man of many titles.
First it was Heisman-winner after his jaw-dropping junior year at Baylor where he passed for over 4,000 and almost another 700 on the ground.
Then after last April it was the Redskins 2012 draft headliner after the franchise had traded up to nab him as the second pick.
Most recently he has carried around the prestigious honor of being AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, only the second time a member of the Burgundy and Gold has taken home the award.
Despite the never-ending titles that No. 10 can boast, don’t count DJ RG3 as one of them.
