10. Mewelde Moore, running back – 2004
The top ten kicks off with a face familiar to some fans of the Minnesota Vikings thanks to his contributions to the team from 2004 through 2007. Mewelde Moore may not have been a feature running back in his career, but at times he looked like a more than capable filler in the backfield as well as punt returner.
Moore followed up an impressive career at Tulane by having a big role in Minnesota’s offense right away. In fact, the running back totaled 92 touches as a rookie and used those to gain 617 yards offensively.
Spending four seasons in Minnesota, Moore finished by playing in 54 games for the Vikings and starting 11 of those. He racked up 1,285 yards and scored one touchdown on the ground while adding 116 catches for 1,093 yards and three more scores. Plus, he gained 768 yards on punt returns and had two more touchdowns there.
Mewelde Moore best season came in 2005 when he gained 1,001 yards from scrimmage and scored three touchdowns. However, his entire career as a running back was solid with Minnesota, as he averaged 4.9 yards per carry while wearing purple and gold.
