7. Michael Smith, RB, 2006

Michael Smith had to wait behind older brother Xavier before he finally got his chance to be the featured back. Similar to fellow Blue Devil back David Adams, once Michael Smith finally got his chance, he made the most of it. Michael Smith rushed for 1,982 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2005 to earn a spot on the All-Southern Arizona first team and All-State second team. Yet the 5-foot 9-inch, 205-pound back really made his name known after his time at Sunnyside. Michael Smith had 870 yards as a senior at Utah State, giving him 1,313 in his Aggie career, and was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While he's only returned three kicks so far in his short NFL career, the backup running back is still on Tampa's roster as the 2013 season approaches.
