Michael Irvin, WR from Miami, was the Dallas Cowboys #1 pick in the 1988 NFL Draft (11th overall). The last #1 pick by Tom Landry, not a bad one either. Michael became one of the most prolific wide receivers of his time. He was a big target and not afraid to go over the middle, and the ability to get deep. He set a Cowboy record with 111 catches and 1,603 yards in 1995. The Triplets, as they were known (Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, & Troy Aikman) were the most feared offensive set in the game for nearly a decade. The Cowboys won three Super Bowls with Michael Irvin as their inspirational leader, on and off the field. Easily the most vocal of the trio, Michael led by example by giving all he had every time he was on the field. A neck injury in 1999 forced an early retirement, otherwise his numbers may have been even more impressive. He is the Cowboys all-time leading receiver in catches, yards, and 2nd in TDs behind the 'Bullet' Bob Hayes. Irvin holds the NFL record for consecutive games with 100 or more receiving yards with 11. Michael Irvin was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007.
