Baltimore Ravens: Top 10 running backs in franchise history

By Chris Schisler

The Baltimore Ravens have had a lot of fun at the running back position. Yesterday we took a look at the top 10 quarterbacks in Ravens history. This list was a lot more fun. You’ve got some of the best players the Ravens ever had at the running back position.

This ranking may surprise you. It’s not your run of the mill ranking. It’s not playing it safe. Instead I think, I made a list that feels right and is at the same time a little bold. It’s not like the number one player on this list is going to surprise you. That being said, there are some players in there you may see as a twist.

When we did quarterbacks we had to sift through some frustrating names. Let’s be real, when Kyle Boller is in your top 10 list, you know it’s been a little on the rough side. With the running back position, you can have more fun. Nobody is here by default and you will have fond memories of each player on the list.
