Mike Rozier is the honoree for Pro Day 2005.
Born March 1, 1961 in Camden, NJ, Mike was an outstanding wishbone fullback at Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, NJ.
His talent on the field caught the eye of many colleges. Rozier chose to go to Nebraska on a football scholarship. He was teammates with Irving Fryar, a previous Pro Day honoree.
Rozier rewrote the Nebraska rushing and scoring record book, along with making a considerable dent in the Big Eight and NCAA books during a phenomenal senior season.
Rozier was a first-round selection by both the United States Football League (first pick overall) and the NFL (second pick overall in the supplemental draft).
Rozier played his first two professional seasons in the USFL—1984 with the Pittsburgh Maulers, and 1985 (Spring) with the Jacksonville Bulls.
In the Fall of 1985 Rozier suited up for the Houston Oilers. Rozier played six seasons for the Oilers, amassing a total of 900 carries for 3171 yards, including a 1,002-yard rushing season in 1988.
While playing for the Oilers, Rozier was elected to the AFC Pro Bowl squad in both 1987 and 1988.
In 1990, Rozier only played three games for the Oilers before being traded to the NFC's Atlanta Falcons, where he finished the year with 153 carries for 675 yards.
Mike's final season in the NFL came the next year with the Falcons. He completed the 1991 season with 361 yards on 96 carries, announcing his retirement during the off-season.
Rozier finished his career with a total of 1159 carries for 4462 yards, having averaged 3.8 yards per carry, and scoring 30 touchdowns.
