The 20 Greatest Running Backs in NFL History

5. LaDainian Tomlinson

Years Played: 2001-2011
All Time Stats: 13,684 Rushing Yards, 145 Rushing TDs, 4.3 Yards Per Carry
Accolades: 2006 NFL MVP, 5x Pro Bowler, 4x All-Pro

If a group of sports analysts were locked in a room and had to name the most productive back of the last 10-15 years, they'd probably give that title to LT. Tomlinson had the monster production, the hard worker attitude, and the all around likeability franchises dream of when they get a talent of his caliber. There wasn't a soul who disliked him and when defenses saw 21 coming at them with the black visor, they were petrified because he could beat you so many ways. Having recently retired, he sadly never got the chance to hoist up of the Lombardi trophy, but slowly working his way up to number five on the rushing yards all time list ain't too shabby. This suit though, not ok.
