I was inspired to write this list after having all the hope in the world that Toby Gerhart would be a top tier running back and lead my fantasy football team to glory. He was... A HUGE FLOP. Peyton Hillis had huge success bringing back the smash mouth football style to the Browns. There is a very complex ideology behind what happened to the white tailback, but this is a list honoring the great players that graced the position. These are the top 10 white running backs in NFL history.
