The 3 Best Running Backs In Ravens History:
1. Jamal Lewis: In his prime Jamal Lewis was one of the best running backs I have ever seen. Lewis seemed like a guaranteed four yards per carry. He was by far the best thing about the Ravens offense during the 2000 season, which culminated in a Super Bowl win. Lewis rushed for 2,066 yards in 2003. His 295 yard performance against the Cleveland Browns was an NFL record at the time.
2. Ray Rice: It’s sad that his career ended with a unforgivable action off the field. Rice was one of the most exciting players in the NFL. He was a great play-maker as a ball carrier and as a receiver. Rice ended up with 6,180 rushing yards in his seven season career. He had a 4.3 yard per carry average and he racked up four 1,000 yard seasons in a row. Rice caught 336 passes for 3,034 yards and six touchdowns.
3. Willis McGahee: Willis McGahee was the bridge between Lewis and Rice. McGahee came to Baltimore in 2007. In his first season with the Ravens he put up 1,207 yards on the ground and 231 as a receiver. McGahee and Rice were a potent combination in 2008 and 2009.
