The NFL's Top 10 Running Backs Heading into the 2011 Season

Is MJD in the top 3?

Football is back! Training camps are open for all 32 teams and the preseason is just 10 days away. Teams have been frantically adding free agents, trading, and cutting players during this condensed offseason. 

I want to be clear. This is my personal ranking, I'm obviously not saying this the best list or the only list. I expect and want people to disagree and give their opinion, because that's what makes this process fun. I'm just trying to stir up conversation on the issue. 

Also, my ranking technique WAS NOT purely based on stats (if I wanted to do that, I would have just listed the top fantasy running backs). I looked at each RB as a whole, not just their ability to run the football, but also their pass catching ability and overall contributions.

So, with the regular season just 5 weeks away, let's take a look at my top 10 running backs going into the 2011 campaign.
