Falcons RB Tyler Allgeier Hits 1,000 Rushing Yards in Rookie Season

After falling to the fifth round and 151st pick overall in the NFL Draft, former BYU running back Tyler Allgeier turned in one of the best NFL rookie seasons in 2022.

Tyler Allgeier came into the season finale needing exactly 100 rushing yards to hit 1,000 on the season, and the Falcons rookie surpassed that on a run in the third quarter versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tyler Allgeier is the first former BYU Cougar to top 1,000 rushing yards in a season, and will likely be joined in that club tonight by Lions running back Jamaal Williams.
