A group of 10 elite running backs have earned their place on NFL Network’s “The Top 100 Players of 2011” series. Kansas City Chiefs blazer Jamaal Charles (No. 33) and St. Louis Rams mainstay Steven Jackson (No. 38) were revealed in Sunday night’s telecast.

NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan offered up his two-round mock draft, and one name that stood out was Nebraska CB Prince Amakamara going to the Cowboys. Interesting choice, and when you think of the Cowboys drafting a defensive back you can’t help by think of the famed Rod Hill pick in 1982.
With the role of feature backs nearly extinct in today’s NFL, Jerome Bettis says Adrian Peterson of the Vikings is the one player he sees with Hall of Fame potential.

With an assist from the NFL Network research crew, here’s a look at some of the notable numbers and top performances of Week 14.

Rest paid off for Rams RB Steven Jackson, who is active for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks despite a strained groin. Jackson sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday, and he was limited Friday.
Pierre Thomas was limited in practice on Friday and is considered a game-day decision. Obviously, game-day decisions are terrible for many reasons, which we have discussed before. And Thomas is i no better position than Jahvid Best, Ray Rice or Steven Jackson.
