ESPN AFC East blogger Tim Graham has released his AFC East running back rankings. LaDainian Tomlinson finished second.
LaDainian Tomlinson, New York Jets: Faded after a hot start, but can't argue with 52 receptions and 1,282 yards from scrimmage.
Shonn Greene was sixth.
Shonn Greene, New York Jets: Almost ranked him fifth, but too limited in the passing game.
I guess this shows that Graham rates his players based on 2010 production alone. Anybody who saw the end of the year saw by pure talent at this point, Greene is way ahead of Tomlinson. That is not to mention how much better he is than the New England pair. Those two are good players, but I am not sure how many people would choose Green-Ellis or Woodhead over Greene if they had a chance to start a team from scratch.
Let us all hope that Joe McKnight cracks this list by this time in 2012.
