2020 NFL Draft Running Back Rankings: Is Travis Etienne the Best RB in the Class?

2020 NFL Draft Running Back Rankings: Clemson's Travis Etienne

Getty 2020 NFL Draft Running Back Rankings: Clemson's Travis Etienne

Welcome to our 2020 NFL Draft running back rankings. If you’ve had a chance to catch a glimpse of the first two weeks of the 2019/20 NFL playoffs this season, then you’ve likely noticed how prevalent the run game has been to all the teams who’s Super Bowl hopes are still alive. The NFL is dictating a resurgence from the same position that the media and scouts want to tell you is becoming devalued.

This year’s draft class is stocked with talented playmakers, as four running backs could sneak their way into the first day of the draft. No back may describe the term playmaker more than Clemson’s Travis Etienne.

Etienne’s blazing speed, elite balance, and improved pass-catching skills have shot him to the top of our draft board.

Reminder: These are player rankings, not a Mock Draft. Just because we may grade a player higher on our board than another player, doesn’t mean we projected them to be the higher selection come draft day.
