Back by popular demand, we’re rolling out our position rankings once again, starting with running backs.

If you’d like to be respected by friends and family, you should subscribe to The MMQB: 10 Things Podcast, and get it in your feed first thing Monday morning. (For non-subscribers, there is sometimes a lag.) The RB show...

Along with the position rankings, we’ll fit in a mailbag or two this offseason as well. So send those questions:
