Thus a great draft pick. Especially if you want to factor in round drafted like the OP stated. It's not even close.
I don't know of any plausable argument that TO is #2 behind Jerry. TO was a greek tragedy unfolding before our very eyes. It puts a taint on the numbers. Regardless, I think its weird that posters think Frank is a bologna sandwich because he isn't running in Eric Dickersons body. Really bizarre. Are we talking about the same Frank Gore? #21? If Thurman thomas can make the Hall, Frank can make the Hall. He needs to break 10K, which he could do next year. But as usual, , like many exceptional backs, numbers don't tell the story. Some of Franks best moments have come just getting back to the line of scrimmage. Payton was like that too -- played for crappy teams and would make a hall of fame run to get a first down on 4th & 3 in a hopeless game. (BTW, does anyone remember the run I am talking here against 9ers in playoffs?). Frank does a lot of things like that. He deserves every good word he gets and I can't really think of a more productive pick in the last 20 years.
2nd all time in yards (15,934) (rice #1 w/ 22,895)
3rd all time in TD's (153) (rice 197, moss 156)
6th all time in receptions (1078) (behind rice, gonzo, harrison, chris carter and tim brown)
5th all time in total td's (156) (behind rice, emmitt,LT and moss)
So as I said arguably the 2nd best WR of ALL TIME. Like him or not.
