If 2015 Finalist Terrell Davis is elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he would become the 30th running back from the modern era to make it to Canton. He currently owns the Denver Broncos franchise record for most career rushing yards (7,607) and most rushing yards in a season (2,008). Here’s how Davis stacks up against those runners enshrined in the Hall of Fame.
