The Buffalo Bills running back wasn’t a high draft pick like other players on this list but that didn’t stop him from having a resounding impact on the franchise. Fred Jackson was an undrafted free agent running back out of Division II’s Coe College in 2006 after a year in NFL Europe with the Rhein Fire.
Over his time with the Bills, he saw the franchise use high draft picks on players like Marshawn Lynch and C.J. Spiller but at the end of the day Jackson would always rise the depth chart and be the team’s best running back.
He was an excellent dual threat back, as he could both run the ball and also be a pass catching threat out of the backfield. He would end up playing eight years in Buffalo and finished with 8,643 yards from scrimmage. He would end his career third in franchise history in rushing yards behind only Thurman Thomas and O.J. Simpson.
Sadly, Jackson’s time in Buffalo didn’t result in a Super Bowl ring, it also didn’t include a playoff appearance. The former Bills running back would go on to play one season with the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 and got the chance to play in his first playoff game.
