9. Priest Holmes (RB Kansas City Chiefs 2001)
Priest Holmes had one of the most impressive 3-year runs a running back has ever pulled off. Holmes came to Kansas City in 2001 after playing the backup role for a few seasons in Baltimore. He rushed for more than 4,500 yards his first 3 seasons in Kansas City. But then the injury bug hit, and Holmes was pushed aside for youngster Larry Johnson. Due to injury, Holmes played just 19 games total his final 3 seasons in Kansas City, but he had a heck of a short-term run.
