How many NFL players have had 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season?
Just three: Roger Craig, Marshall Faulk, and Christian McCaffrey. Most recently, McCaffrey inched over the 1,000-yard receiving mark in the Panthers’ final game of the 2019 season—he finished the year with 1,387 rushing yards and 1,005 receiving yards. McCaffrey, a third-year back, was a major bright spot on a 5-win team that started 3 different quarterbacks; he’s the only player to go 1,000/1,000 for a losing team. Before him was Faulk, who hit the milestone in the Rams’ championship season in 1999. In his sixth NFL season and first with the Rams, the elusive back caught 87 passes for 1,048 yards, and he rushed for 1,381. Faulk was an especially adept pass-catcher in the Rams’ high-powered offense, often lining up at receiver. The first to do it was Craig on the 1985 49ers. Like McCaffrey, Craig accomplished this in his third NFL season. With 1,016 receiving yards, he’s the only player on this list to lead his team in that category, and he also managed 1,050 yards on the ground with the fewest rushing attempts on the list (214).

This depends on the way you evaluate talent. I would put this resume at the top: * 8× Pro Bowl selection (1981, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1989, 1990, 1993) * 3× First-Team All-Pro selection (1987, 1989, 1990) * 3× Second-Team All-Pro selection (1981, 1983, 1984) * 4× Super Bowl champion (XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV) * 3× Super Bowl MVP (1981, 1984, 1989) * 2× AP NFL MVP (1989, 1990) * 1989 PFWA NFL MVP * 1989 NEA NFL MVP * 1989 NFL Offensive Player of the Year * 1986 NFL Comeback Player of the Year * 1981 UPI NFC Player of the Year * 1989 Bert Bell Award * 1979 Cotton Bowl MVP * San Francisco 49ers #16 retired The immortal Joe Montana.

What us states do not have an NFL football team?
The majority of states do not have football teams. If you need to know them all then here is the list. Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington (the Redskins are in Washington D.C.), West Virginia, and Wyoming. I didn't list New Jersey because the Jets and Giants actually play in New Jersey, not New York.
Who is the smallest offensive or defensive lineman in college or pro football?
On average, the defensive ends (DE) are the lightest linemen. They need speed more than mass. That applies to both college and the pros. You will get an occasional DE that weighs a lot more than average. They are usually on 3-4 defensive schemes. These guys don't really meet the definition of defensive end, as the outside linebacker (OLB) performs their function (outside contain).
