2 of 5

Warrick Dunn was a fantastic pick-up for the Atlanta Falcons in 2002. He made an immediate impact for the team, creating a dominating rushing attack between him and Michael Vick.

His career with the Atlanta Falcons was a very successful one, rushing for 5,981 yards and 30 touchdowns on 1413 attempts. He played in a total of 90 games for the Atlanta Falcons, proving that he was a durable option for the team to depend on the game in a game out. His great career ultimately led to his induction into the Atlanta Falcons Ring of Honor in 2017.

Dunn holds a handful of Atlanta Falcons rushing records including rush yards in a single playoff run (310), rushing yards in a playoff game (142), rushing touchdowns in a playoff game (2) and total for a playoff run (3) and a couple of other records regarding yards per attempt in the playoffs and rush yards per game in the playoffs.

Off the field, he is a class act individual who has started two charities, as well as helping numerous other charitable organizations. He is deserving of being recognized as one of the greatest running backs to ever play for the Atlanta Falcons.
