Every year the draft proves to be a crap shoot. Most teams will miss a lot of their picks. While some players live to have successful careers, only a few can say that they were absolute game-changers for the teams that drafted them. Here’s a look at my top 10 RB taken in the fist round since the year 2000.

10. Willis McGahee (2003) 8,474 Rushing yards.  65 TD

9. Larry Johnson  (2003) 6,223 Rushing yards. 55 TD

8. Chris Johnson (2008) 9,442 Rushing yards.  54 TD
