Rod Smith

During his 12-year NFL career, Rod Smith was often overshadowed by other wide receivers, such as Jerry Rice and Randy Moss. But Smith played consistently well during his career, finishing with 849 total receptions, 11,389 receiving yards and 68 receiving touchdowns. From 1997 to 2005, he caught at least 70 passes every season, including a league-leading 113 catches in 2001. Smith's contributions to Denver's passing game helped the Broncos emerge as perhaps the league's best offense in the late 1990's. Smith caught an 80-yard touchdown pass from John Elway in Super Bowl XXXIII -- the final touchdown ever thrown by Elway.
