Rodney Hampton

Rodney Hampton was the Giants' first-round draft choice in 1990 and played his entire eight-year career (104 regular-season games) for the team.

Hampton is second in Giants history with 6,897 rushing yards and 1,824 carries. He had five consecutive 1,000-yard seasons (1991-95) and is third with 17 100-yard games and 49 rushing touchdowns.

Hampton is one of eight players in Giants history with at least 3,000 rushing yards and 100 receptions (Morris missed by two catches) and one of eight with 3,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards.

The Giants won Super Bowl XXV in his rookie season, but Hampton was unable to play in the game after suffering a fractured fibula in the divisional round game against Chicago. He later played in three postseason games, amassing 194 rushing yards, eight catches and two touchdowns. In a wild card victory against Minnesota on Jan. 9, 1994, Hampton carried 33 times for 161 yards, matching the Giants' postseason records set by Rob Carpenter in 1981. Hampton's 51-yard run in that game is the longest in Giants playoff history.
