NFL Team Needs | Who Is the NFL’s Best Overall Running Back?
By Chris Trapasso, Bleacher Report
When debating who is the best running back in the NFL, many are inclined to say Adrian Peterson. If there was a league-wide vote, Arian Foster would accumulate an abundance of votes. After three straight years of over 1,200 rushing yards along with the yards from scrimmage title last season, many would give Ray Rice the distinction.
LeSean McCoy entered himself into the conversation after a masterful 1,309-yard, 17-touchdown performance in 2011. Matt Forte, Frank Gore, Michael Turner, Steven Jackson and Chris Johnson are noteworthy candidates, as well.
In the eyes of some, veteran of the group Maurice Jones-Drew deserves the honor as NFL’s best running back.
