2020 NFL Draft: Running Back Rankings

While it's possible that no running back will be taken in the first round of the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, the position should still play a prominent role in the proceedings. Last year, just one running back (Josh Jacobs) was a first-round pick of the 25 total (including fullbacks) selected.

As part of Athlon Sports' 2020 NFL Draft Guide, we have ranked each position, including more than 30 running backs. And while their role has become somewhat antiquated, a handful of fullbacks also are ranked below.  Where each back goes will depend on how interested teams see them fitting into their offense. Running backs that can be a factor in the passing game carry even more value in current NFL attacks.
