Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Vikings, NY Giants
Tarkenton used his lack of height as an advantage during his NFL career—at 6’0”, he had the speed and the agility to scramble like a madman to make plays for the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants. The former Georgia Bulldog was one of the first quarterbacks in the league to use scrambling as a primary weapon—something players at the position now use regularly on offense—rushing for over 3,500 yards during his lengthy 18-year career. Tarkenton won the NFL’s Most Valuable Player Award in 1975 and was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986.
