1992 Pro Set #349Before there was #20 Barry Sanders, there was #20 Billy Sims.
The winner of the 1978 Heisman Trophy, Sims was the first overall pick of the 1980 NFL draft. The Lions had a star. Sims was named to the Pro Bowl in '80, '81, and '82. A horrible knee injury in 1984 ended his career.

Growing up, I was a fan of Billy, and Earl Campbell. I liked guys that ran with a punishing style. Even though Walter Payton played for the Bears, I liked him too.

Although Sims had many "issues" after his playing days were over, he is still beloved by Lions fans.
