Running back has become an increasingly difficult position to evaluate for the NFL draft. NFL teams are using more running backs than ever before, as only a few feature backs remain solidly in their role.
And as of late, there have been a growing number of backs taken outside the top few rounds who are making big impacts in the NFL. Vick Ballard, Daryl Richardson and Alfred Morris come to mind.
So as passing offenses continue to take over the pro game, and more teams are utilizing multiple-back systems, the value of running backs has hit an all-time low.
It is therefore somewhat difficult to rate running backs at this stage, especially as some teams may value a different type of back over another. One team may think more highly of a certain back in terms of talent, but draft someone lower on their board because they better fit the offense.
With that in mind, here's my crack at ranking the top 10 backs in this year's NFL draft.
