2. Ahman Green
The amount of patience and consistency Ahman Green showed in the backfield ranks him number two on our list as he is somebody who will go down as underrated in our book in terms of league history.
Speaking of consistency, Green rushed for 1,000 yards five seasons in a row and six of seven seasons in a row having an injury-filled season in 2005.
He rushed for an amazing 1,883 yards in 2003 with 15 touchdowns which has to go down as one of the greatest seasons from a running back in NFL history.
You had to love Green’s patience in waiting for holes to open up and then hitting them with such velocity as it made him unstoppable.
Green is the Packersall-time leading rusher and although he may not have the accolades and achievements of some others on this list he played in a different era of football and if he had played earlier and produced the same numbers, he would be a first ballot hall of fame player. For a sixth round pick to be named to the Pro Bowl four times, is outstanding and to lead the entire NFC in rushing yards in 2003 puts a stamp on Green’s career. Green rushed for 8,322 yards again making him the all time leader in Packer history, while adding 54 touchdowns which makes him second all time. He is undoubtedly one of the most underrated running backs in NFL history.
