Marcus Allen is one of the best running backs to ever play in the NFL. Allen was the tenth player selected in the 1982 National Football League Draft by the Los Angeles Raiders and played a total of 16 seasons with the Los Angeles Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. Allen started his career as a standout with the University of Southern California Trojans.
During his time in the NFL, Allen gained 12,243 yards rushing, 5,411 yards receiving and scored 145 touchdowns. Considered one of the NFL’s best goal line and short-yardage runners, Allen began the first season of his pro career as the NFL Rookie of the Year and retired as the game’s all-time rushing touchdown leader. At the time of his retirement after the 1997 NFL season, he held the single-season record for most rushing and receiving yards combined with 2,314, second in consecutive 100-yard games, and was third in career-combined yardage. During his 11 seasons with the Raiders, Allen was nominated to the Pro Bowl five times. He added a sixth appearance in 1994, as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. He was the Raiders leading ground gainer seven consecutive years and the Chiefs four consecutive times. He even led the Raiders in receptions with 51 in 1987. Allen’s big-game performance in Super Bowl XVIII when the Raiders defeated the Washington Redskins 38-9 earned Allen game MVP honors. In that game, he rushed for 191 yards and scored two touchdowns and set a Super Bowl record with a 74-yard run. Allen’s best season came in 1985, as he led the league with 1,759 rushing yards on 380 carries for a 4.6 yard per carry average and 11 touchdowns. For his performance, he was rewarded with league MVP honors. In 1995, Marcus made NFL history when he became the first player in league history to rush for over 10,000 yards and catch passes for 5,000 more.
