Since everyone else from around the NFL is doing it, I thought I might as well join in on the fun too. I am going to start a series here on The Huddle where each week, I will project the top players at a certain position for the 2017 Season. I thought I might as well start with a play-making position to get this thing rolling. Therefore, this week we will take a closer look at my top 5 projected running backs.

His patience as a runner coupled with his ability to see the play develop make him the best runner of our generation. I would not be surprised if Le'Veon Bell runs for over 2,000 yards next season.
