The 3x All-Pro has decided to join the Jaguars and start playing. Anyone who has Maurice Jones-Drew on their fantasy football team has got to be happy about this. MJD has been virtually a touchdown machine ever since he entered the NFL in 2006. He's also the led the entire league in rushing yards in 2011.
Everyone knows that MJD is a scoring juggernaut. Have you ever thought about how he stacks up against the NFL's All-Time Rushing Touchdown Leader, Emmitt Smith? After six NFL seasons, MJD has scored 72 touchdowns on 1,484 career rushing attempts and 278 receptions. That means he scores one TD every 24.47 times he touches the ball. Emmitt scored 100 touchdowns on 2,007 attempts and 301 receptions. That's one TD for every 23.08 times he touched the ball.
When you take into consideration the amount of talent the Cowboys had on their offensive line, which was dotted with Pro-Bowlers, All-Pros and Hall of Famers, then compare it to the Jaguars, who haven't had an offensive lineman make the Pro-Powl since Tony Boselli in 2000, it shows just how good Jones-Drew really is.
