    I don't think AD should be rated #2.
    I think it is too high for him.
    I think he needs to play more than 14 games in the NFL to crown him the 2nd best in the league.
    He certainly showed last year that he easily has the potential to be #1, but I think we need to give him at least one more year before we crown him.
    Hell, he arguably played as well or better than any other RB in the NFL last year, but one season is still one season.
    A GREAT player performs at a high level year after year.
    And if he doesn't produce this year he'll drop.
    These things aren't produced for the long range, just based on last season's production he's the current second RB.

    Are you saying BW should be higher or lower?

    Expand on that please....





    But for myself, I easily would put BW in the top 5 RB's in the NFL.....he is a dam good RB, one of the best in the NFL....
    totally agree with u on BW. He is prolly one of the most underated RBs in the league, just because he plays in philly who doesnt run that much, he is the total package, run,catch, return, and block

    i think westbrook has been underrated his whole career. finally now he is getting some of the respect he deserves.

    holy crap they rated Chester under
    mcfadden
    thats just silly


    Mcfadden may become a good runner in the NFL but Chester is a proven Vet who has starting exp and hell being the back up nearly broke 1,000 yard on the ground

    personally im not feeling the Mcfadden hype since his highlight vid they showed during the Draft showed him get stopped time after time once he gets hit while chester moves the pile

    Peterson runs behind the best offensive line in the NFL but also is the most physically dominating back in the league.

    I'm really surprised none of you have commented on that yet, little disappointed in you guys.

    LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers is the top-ranked running back in the NFL and the Vikings’ Adrian Peterson is No. 2, according to Scouts Inc. The service — in a ranking that is currently on ESPN.com — rated the league’s running backs from one to 64......

    Nice article and read singer.

    IMO,Larry Johnson is not a top 5 neither Brian Westbrook.

    Chester Taylor is a better player than several who appears on the list.

    Maroney and Jones- Drew
    should be a little higher.

    El underdog.
