Ordering the top backs in the division

ESPN.com's Ashley Fox thinks the top three are all top 10. She’s got Maurice Jones-Drew second, Arian Foster fourth and Chris Johnson 10th.
That seems reasonable to me. Though, to the chagrin of Jaguars fans and MJD, I give Foster the edge in the division because I find him more versatile and consider him more dangerous in a better offense.
Granted it was on a far better team, but in 2011 Foster averaged 5.56 yards per touch to MJD’s 5.12. Foster is younger and doesn’t take the same degree of a beating on a weekly basis.
How do you stack the AFC South backs?
I always fear a poll becomes a popularity contest and I only have five slots to order them. But I present what I think are the most reasonable choice for ordering these three and politely request your input.
