Former Georgia RB Terrell Davis elected to NFL Hall of Fame

NFL: Hall of Fame Game-New York Giants vs Buffalo Bills

Terrell Davis had a decent career during his time with the Georgia Bulldogs.

A transfer from Long Beach State, he sat behind Garrison Hearst for a year — before grabbing the starting role as a junior and senior. Injuries hindered his play during his last season on the collegiate level, and he failed to rush for 1,000 in any of his three seasons in Athens.

He was ultimately drafted in the sixth round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos — where he became one of the best running backs in league history.

As such, the NFL recognized him Saturday as a 2017 Hall of Fame inductee:

Davis only played seven seasons in the NFL. With that said, his resume is certainly spectacular. The San Diego native is a three-time Pro Bowler, a two-time Super Bowl Champion, a Super Bowl MVP, and a one-time league MVP (1998).

Davis also is the Broncos’ all-time leading rusher, with 7,607 yards. His best season came in 1998 — where he accrued 2,008 yards on the ground to go along with 21 touchdowns.
