Analysis: Ray Rice is a small, but strong running back that took over the starting job from Willis McGahee in 2009. Rice was second in the NFL in total yards from scrimmage last season, gaining 2,041, over 1,300 of which were on the ground. He’s certainly been used in every offensive situation in his short career to this point. Rice will continue to his strength and quickness to excel on offense.
2010 Outlook: Rice will again be the featured back for the Ravens. The team may back him off a little bit and spell him with both McGahee and Jalen Parmele. Rice will provide the versatility he did last season for the offense and will lead the team to a top five rush ranking.
