88 Trent Richardson Trent Richardson

He is terrible and a draft bust

A surprise bust pick. - htoutlaws2012

All time great

Come on, Trent should be in top 20. He played an exceptional rookie season all with BROCKEN RIBS. He still played, he never gave up and always gives 100 percent. This list is crap (other than the top 5)

89 Le'Veon Bell Le'Veon Bell Le'Veon Andrew Bell is an American football running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

Well he had a bright future there in Pittsburgh until he got hurt this year. - htoutlaws2012

He helped the Steelers go to the playoffs

Le'Veon Bell is awesome!

This guys is a beast

He is a tank. He's the beast on the field. He should be number 1 baby. Lets go beanie #1

94 Derrick Ward
95 Wilbert Montgomery

Wilbert got it done without a front line.

96 Joe Laws
97 Essex Johnson
98 Calvin Hill

Tough inside runner that gave morton and stabuch a good running game to open up the passing game. Also a change of pace to walt garrison.

Outstanding running back that made on bad fumble. JUst an amazing player.

I played in the backfield with Ernest in high school (Baldwin High School, Milledgeville, Ga) Very quick, great hands, and could cut on a dime. His rushing totals has him at #41. He won a Super Bowl with Washington and has had several 1000 yard seasons. He is a top 50 running back.
