Torry Holt was everything the Rams could have imagined when they drafted him 6th overall in 1999. He was the consummate professional and was always willing to mentor the revolving door of WRs behind him and fellow Rams legend Isaac Bruce.

If it wasn't for Bruce, Holt would hold a littany of Rams receiving records, but regardless of where they stand I think Rams fans were just happy to have two HOF WRs pushing each other. They were a HUGE part of the (short-lived) glory days for the Rams in St. Louis.

You could argue that if it wasn't for knee injuries, Holt would have surpassed Bruce and climbed up the NFL ladder in most major receiving categories. But Holt's career sadly came to an end when he was 33 and - while grateful for what he gave the team - were left wondering how much injuries robbed this all-time great.
