was ranked in Cover32.com's Top 20 running backs in the NFL.

C.J. Spiller was ranked #19 while Andre Ellington followed right behind him at #20 on the ranked list.

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.
