Running backs: Ray Rice, Justin Forsett, Gus Edwards
Ray Rice is arguably the greatest Baltimore Ravens running back in franchise history. Rice notched three Pro Bowls and two Second-Team All-Pros in his six seasons with the team. What made Rice so great for the Ravens was he was just as good a receiver out of the backfield as he was running the ball. Rice’s 43 career touchdowns rank second all-time for the franchise (43). Rice is also second all-time on the Baltimore Ravens rushing leaders list, behind only Jamal Lewis.
Justin Forsett‘s stint with Baltimore was short, but he left a massive impact within the organization. Forsett earned a Pro Bowl nod in his first season with the team, rushing for 1,266-yards and scoring eight touchdowns. Forsett was the perfect back for the Ravens 2014 offense, one of the best units the franchise has ever rolled out.
Gus Edwards gets the nod over Mark Ingram here because he’s been around a little longer. Edwards rushed for at least 700-yards in his two seasons with the Ravens. More impressively, Edwards was an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers who made the team and came alive when Lamar Jackson took over the reins of the team’s offense. He figures to be an important member of the team’s run game for the foreseeable future.
Fullback: Vonta Leach
The Baltimore Ravens have had plenty of good fullbacks play for the team throughout their history, but the 2010s were special for the position. Deciding between Vonta Leach, Kyle Juszczyk, and Patrick Ricard was difficult, but I ultimately went with Leach, who earned two Pro Bowls, two First-Team All-Pro nods, and won a Super Bowl in his three seasons with the team.
