Jerick McKinnon, running back

The only player on this list never to make a Pro Bowl, Jerick McKinnon was a member of the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs over the last two seasons and spent the year prior with the San Francisco 49ers.

McKinnon was a third-round of the Minnesota Vikings in 2014 and spent four years with the team where he rushed for 1,918 yards and seven touchdowns while adding 984 receiving yards and five receiving scores.

Any team adding McKinnon would get a dual-threat running back that could make a difference in how opposing defenses have to cover players. His role in Kansas City played to his strengths perfectly.

He will be 31 years old this season, but that shouldn’t impact his value too much since his recent play was so valuable. Sadly, the running back market is a tough place to be in today’s NFL, even if you are a notable player.
