Ever year there is always speculation on who is the best player at their respective positions. One of the most talked about positions between fans is running back. There are many who believe that Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot is the best running back, especially after the rookie season he just had. Well Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson gave his opinion on this matter and chose to go in another direction. Dickerson believes that Pittsburgh Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell is the best running back in the NFL.
“I have to say it’s between Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott. I think, for me, I have to go Le’Veon Bell,” Dickerson said “He does so many things. Coming out of the backfield, lining up outside. He’s big. I’m partial to big backs. I’m 6’3.”
I have to agree with Dickerson on this, just because of the body of work that Bell has right now. Bell is the most complete back in the NFL right now and it seems like he is getting better every year. Elliot has only one season under his belt, so let’s see if he can keep this up for the next couple of seasons.
