The 2014 NFL draft's class of running backs is interesting because of the lack of elite talent but the tremendous depth and a couple of lesser-known guys with very high ceilings.
Running back has become an interesting position at the NFL level, and no backs were taken in the first round of last year's draft because they're becoming less and less valued.
In my most recent big board, there were no backs in the top 50, although the top three on this list would likely all be in the 50s if I had expanded the rankings.
But because of the lack of top-flight talent, I thought it would be constructive to give a preview and my own rankings of some of the top backs.
Running back rankings have a tendency to fluctuate wildly all the way until draft day, and this list will be no different. But as of now, here are the top running backs for the 2014 draft.
