It isn't an NFL offseason without a plethora of rankings and lists. One of the latest comes from Pat Kirwan of Sirius XM NFL Radio and NFL.com, who dissects the league's running backs into nine categories.
New England's BenJarvus Green-Ellis lands in the middle of the pack, in "Group D" (backs 17-21).
Writes Kirwan: "He's in the shadow of Tom Brady, but look at his production: Tied for second in rushing touchdowns (13) and rushed for more than 1,000 yards while averaging just 14 carries per game."
Green-Ellis is the lone Patriot to make the list, with Danny Woodhead, Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley left on the outside looking in. Green-Ellis is the first AFC East running back in the rankings.
