Who Will Be the Top Rookie RB in 2021?

Multiple opinions on which rookie running back will be on top in three years

Which rookie running back do you think will have the most value in the 2021 season?

Jason Wood

Let me preface this by saying I like this running back class quite a bit, but we have to acknowledge in today's NFL it's no longer treated as a premier position in many front offices. I think Josh Jacobs is in consideration for the 2021 best player, but he's not my top pick because I have little faith in Jon Gruden and his coaching staff to build a top-tier offense. My choice right now would be Darrell Henderson, because Todd Gurley has an arthritic knee. While I think most of my colleagues are over concerned about Gurley's 2019 prospects, projecting his value in two more years gets risky. I could easily see David Montgomery, Miles Sanders, and Alexander Mattison being the top player in 2021, as well.

Daniel Simpkins

Much will change between now and then, but David Montgomery is the highest probability choice given that the Bears seem to be on the cusp of title contention and considering Montgomery’s three-down skillset, something few backs in this class posses.
