2014 NFL Draft running back rankings

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

We have a new name at the top of our running back rankings.

The 2014 NFL Draft may be the second consecutive draft in which not a single running back comes off the board in the first round. As has always been the case, running back rankings will vary from team to team depending on the scheme and skill-set preferences of a particular organization.

All that side, Ka'Deem Carey takes over the top spot in our rankings. Carey was highly regarded in the preseason but fell some due to off-the-field issues and inconsistent play early in the season. He finished strong, and he has the NFL talent to back up his production. Despite his size, he's tough to bring down and combines that with blazing speed.

Lache Seatrunk of Baylor and Bishop Sankey have been fixtures near the top of our running back rankings and that's unlikely to change between now and May. Ohio State's Carlos Hyde and Auburn's Tre Mason are two running backs who have consistently climbed the board throughout the season.

In total, we have 32 running backs ranked. Some of the lesser known players to keep an eye on are Terrance West of Towson, Rajion Neal of Tennessee and Antonio Andrews of Western Kentucky. Here's our full list.
