After back-to-back Consensus All-American awards (1963 and 1964) with the Kansas Jayhawks, Gale Sayers was drafted by the Chicago Bears with the fourth overall pick of the 1965 NFL Draft. Sayers became the Bears featured running back during his first season. He set an NFL rookie record by scoring 22 touchdowns and won the 1965 NFL Rookie of the Year Award. From 1965 through 1969, Sayers played in five consecutive NFL Pro Bowls and won two NFL Rushing Titles (1966 and 1969). He won three NFL Pro Bowl MVP Awards and was the 1969 NFL Comeback Player of the Year. Sayers' career was cut short due to a knee injury he suffered at the beginning of the 1970 NFL season. His 5.0 average yards per carry is tied with Barry Sanders, Adrian Peterson, Joe Perry and Demarco Murray as the fifth highest average among runningbacks in NFL history. In 1977, Sayers became the youngest player ever inducted into the Hall of Fame (34 years old).
