With a successful career as an NFL pro, Marshawn Lynch ran away with a high net worth.

Though Lynch earned all-league recognition for his high school performance as a running back at Oakland Technical, he also played quarterback, lineman and defensive back. When his senior year ended, Lynch was the No. 3 overall high school prospect.

Lynch attended the University of California. He earned a starting job as a sophomore and decided to enter the NFL draft after his junior year. The Buffalo Bills drafted Lynch with a 12th overall pick.

Lynch played three seasons with the Bills before he was traded to the Seahawks. His time with Seattle made him a superstar, and he led the team to victory in Super Bowl 48.

His football contract, endorsement deals, and clothing line all helped Lynch amass his wealth. As of May 2017, he has a net worth of $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
