Currently ranked 14th on the NFL all-time leading rusher list with 12,074, Thurman Thomas was elected into the Hall of Fame in 2007.
Thomas went to Oklahoma State and was potentially going to be a first-round pick but a knee injury forced him back into the second round, and he was taken with the 40th pick of the 1988 NFL draft.
Same as Jim Kelly, Thomas was in the Super Bowl for four years in a row with the Bills, and in the first Super Bowl, Super Bowl XXV, Thomas had a solid game vs the New York Giants, rushing for 135 yards and a touchdown, but sadly, the next three tries at the Super Bowl would be massively disappointing.
Super Bowl XXVI started off with misfortune. Thurman lost his helmet and missed the first two offensive plays, and that sent the Bills into a tailspin, and Thomas would only gain 13 yards rushing. The next Super Bowl, he would only rushed for 19 yards and the final Super Bowl, he only rushed for 37.
Despite his misfortune in the Super Bowl, Thomas is one of the best running backs of all time, and on Feb. 3rd, 2007, Thomas walked into Canton and is now a Hall of Famer.
