Most NFL players dream to one day be in the position to win at least one Super Bowl during their football careers. Torry Holt was fortunate to experience the amazing feeling of winning one right away as a rookie during the 1999 season.

As every Rams fans know, that was the magical year in which The Greatest Show on Turf came into play, with Holt being one of the key options at wide receiver.

During his rookie campaign, Holt helped make life easier for quarterback Kurt Warner. Holt hauled in 52 passes for 788 yards to go along with six touchdowns as a rookie. St. Louis wisely used its No. 6 pick in the 1999 NFL Draft to land the former North Carolina State wideout.

From there, Holt would continue to be the kind of player that only got better with experience. He would even go on to lead the league in receiving yards (1,635) during his second season, which was incredible for the Rams to see.

What was even more impressive about Holt’s career is the fact that from 2000-05, the wideout would record at least 1,300 receiving yards. He finished his time with the Rams by catching 869 passes to go along with 74 touchdowns in 10 seasons.

Over the years, St. Louis was loaded with all sorts of dangerous weapons on offense. While some of his teammates may have ended up making more of an impact, Holt was always one of the most fun to watch with his explosive playing style.
