1977 Earl Campbell Texas RB Sr.

1978 Billy Sims Oklahoma RB Jr.

1979 Charles White USC RB Sr.

1980 George Rogers South Carolina RB Sr.

1981 Marcus Allen USC RB Sr.

1982 Herschel Walker Georgia RB Jr.

1983 Mike Rozier Nebraska RB Sr.

Yeah.

But as for the last 20 years, Charles Woodson is the only guy that has made a meaningful impact in the NFL. Reggie Bush may be the 2nd, but the jury's still out.

Maybe Carson Palmer as well. We'll see.

Maybe we should back up a bit.
