PatriotReign37 Posted September 11, 2009 Share Posted September 11, 2009 How do the Pats know these things PSFIKH? Is it Ernie Adams or Belichick? TOP SHELF Some players explode onto the scene, including current Jaguars star Maurice Jones-Drew and Patriots star Wes Welker. In fact, these players find themselves in some pretty rare company. Here's a look at the top five players in all-purpose yards over their first three seasons in the NFL: Gale Sayers (6,401) Wes Welker (6,216) LaDainian Tomlinson (6,145) Bruce Harper (6,004) Maurice Jones-Drew (6,003) Hard to believe that Welker (whose first three years were 2004-06) is second only to the legendary Sayers in all-purpose yards over this period. In fact, given this information, it's hard to believe the Dolphins sent one of the most productive players in history to New England in 2007 for a second- and a seventh-round pick. In New England, Welker has caught 223 passes in two seasons. Harper is the great unkown on the list. The 5-8 speedster never really got a shot to start despite an impressive rushing average of 4.9 YPA in his career. http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/Articles/11_2791_He%27s_a_lonely_man_there_in_the_basement.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
