were both included in cover32.com's top 20 running backs in the NFL.

Spiller was ranked #19 overall and Ellington came in next at #20. Here is what they had to say about the elusive Ellington.

Ellington might be the best-kept secret in the NFL, as he led the league last year with a jaw-dropping 5.5 yards per carry. The sample size might have been small (just 118 attempts), but that number catches your eye. And guess what? It’s only going to go up. The Cardinals top back, Rashard Mendenhall, retired at just 26 years old this offseason, meaning Ellington will have a chance to be the feature back and build on a successful rookie season.

Here are videos of the two great NFL running backs from Clemson.
