Ahmed Plummer...Elvis Grbac
A lot of people in here don't know what a role player is. Ahmed Plummer was a starting CB. No offense to you footballfreak49, you just happened to be the one I quoted.

This is one of the few role players anyone listed. Renaldo was WR, fast with hands of stone, he only averaged a catch a game but was used a a decoy running deep routes (he was a world record holding 110 meter hurdler).

Dexter Carter. 1st round draft pick kick returner. His main role was to arrange the swift handover of the ball to the opposition whilst ensuring that they also got the best field position.
I never understood picking him so high, not only was only 5'9" and he wasn't muscular either, I think he was listed at 170 pounds, but was more like 160, a good sneeze would knock him down.
He always seemed to do something great on MNF. He was fun to watch.
He had some great runs. His punt returns were awesome, but did you ever notice whenever he returned kickoffs, he returned it to the 28 yard line, like every fricking time. I would yell out "I bet $1000 dollars he takes it to the 28", and Frank Gifford says "And McLemore takes it out to the 28 yard line."
