SB Nation's Dan Rubenstein and Matt Ufford rank their top five running backs in this draft class.

The Ravens will likely draft a running back if offseason comments are indicative of anything.

The need for three-to-four running backs on the Ravens' roster could be apparent in Gary Kubiak's scheme. The Ravens could take a back as high as the third round if one's available. And the good news, for the Ravens, is that the value of running backs continues to decline, meaning a top five-to-eight prospect could be available in the mid-rounds.

SB Nation's Matt Ufford and Dan Rubenstein take a look at the running backs that will be available this draft season, ranking the top five.
