Power Ranking Adrian Peterson Amongst Greatest NFL RBs in League History

Adrian Peterson's 2012 season was one of the best ever for a running back, as he finished just nine yards short of breaking Eric Dickerson's 28-year-old single-season rushing record.

Peterson's first six seasons already has him ranked 33rd all-time in rushing yards, and less than 10,000 yards away from chasing down Emmit Smith in all-time rushing yards.

But after those six years, where does Adrian Peterson rank amongst the greatest running backs in NFL history?

This list won't just be based off of yards produced (which is why you won't see names like Jerome Bettis and Marshall Faulk, who are ranked sixth and 10th all-time respectively), but also on the impact these backs had on their teams and the game itself.
