As I write this, I’m looking at Jonathan Stewart’s rookie card sitting on my desk (it’s worth $0.41, which I think is extremely undervalued).

Stewart sits just 59 yards ahead of Whitehead in the Oregon all-time rankings for rushing leaders. With 2,891 career yards on the ground, he also brought in 21 touchdowns in just two years for the Ducks.

Earning 289 receiving yards for an additional three touchdowns, Stewart’s scoring total in college stands at 144 points.

In college, he was a two-time first-team All-American and a first-team All-Pac-10 player. Stewart spent ten years in the NFL after getting drafted by the Carolina Panthers. He played in the 2015 Pro Bowl.
