5. Rick Upchurch

Rick Upchurch was the original famous No. 80 in a Broncos uniform. He played in the Mile High City between 1975-1983 and pretty much did it all for the Broncos: receiving, punt and kick returning, rushing and even attempted a couple of unsuccessful passes. He logged 267 catches for 4,369 yards and 24 TDs in his years with Denver and had electrifying moves as both a return specialist and receiver. While never recording a 1,000-yard season, his complete package qualifies him for fifth on this list because of his intangibles and being a member of the NFL’s All ’80s team. Overall, Upchurch was also a four-time Pro-Bowler and amassed a whopping 10,081 total yards in his career.
